Project Thursday {just a note}

Today I'm over at the Precious Remembrance blog with a card using the Calender stamp set, as well as a little spur of the moment video on the design process behind it. I thought you might like to see my thought process (or lack thereof ;)) when making my cards.

And the video...

So a few extra shots of the things I added on afterwards, as well as why I added them...

Here I changed the twine because I wanted a little more color and I felt the jute kinda blended in with the butterfly. I also changed the gem colors and sizes to match with the patterned paper a little better.
You might also see the faint watermark image of the calender on the tag - a little extra something that makes me feel a bit better about a card. :)

I also distressed the edges of the paper a bit with the back of my scissors (so I wouldn't cut myself or dull my scissor blades), and then added a paperclip...mostly because I think they're so darn cute. ;)

 That's it for me today! I hope you enjoyed this little 'behind the scenes'! Have a blessed one!

  6. So happy to see that your card is being featured in the "Out & About" portion of the Moxie Fab World. It doesn't surprise me thoug because your work is amazing and your such a sweetie. I was at the book store before going on Vacation over a month ago, and I was looking at a card magazine and I was delighted to see so many of your creations in there. Your simply astounding in your published works and I want to say I am so proud of you. I wish you much more success on your work. God is so good and I am so happy seeing Him use your and your talents. Your card is very pretty today. I love all the layering that you do and your video is great. I make videos as well and I love using Windows Live Movie Maker and here is a link if your interested. It takes some getting use to but I love it. I don't think you have to worry to much about movie making, you did a great job. http://windows-live-movie-maker.en.softonic.com/
