Hey there! Happy Friday and welcome to the final day of Card Creations week with Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine. This special issue (in its 12th volume!) is just one of my favorite things ever. If there were a Kalyn's Favorite Things (like Oprah, of course), this issue would be one of them. It's packed with cards for every occasion you could think of and features 200+ card ideas to instantly inspire you. Get your own copy here (or keep reading to find out how you could win your own free copy).
Check out the fun and bright cover here:
I'm honored to be one of 8 designers participating in this blog hop and we're sharing a brand new project based on a sketch! I chose the one below:
And here's the project I created inspired by this sketch:
I took a non-literal approach to the grid pattern and used fewer pieces and arranged them a little bit less linear and more...free-form. Listen to me getting all technical. Ha! I just glued them how I liked them. :) And of course, popped some of the cameras up using foam tape for dimension. Then, I stamped a sweet sentiment from Paper Smooches as well as a heart!
Time to go check out the other designers playing along with this hop! And be sure to leave a comment on each designers' post because we're giving away a copy of Card Creations 12 to one of you! Just leave a comment by March 11th on this post and I'll choose a winner and your very own copy will arrive right on your doorstep!
