Before I left Sarah's Cards I had a few more projects that I needed to put together, the first was my post for the shop blog. I decided to use a paper manufacturer that I rarely use, Sassafras Lass, I don't know why I don't use them more often really. I love the edging strips that they add onto each sheet of patterned paper and on this first page I decided to incorporate lots of them into my design.
My second page was a class, all the details and step by step photographic instructions are over on Sarah's cards blog. Often my pages start with a pile of fussy cut elements that I have cut from the patterned papers and then I just keep fiddling around with them until I find a way that I can use them. To create this page I cut out all the blue flowers and then built my page around them.
I love the sticker sheets that Sassafras create, so usable! All of my stickers have been matted onto scraps of cardstock and cut out, it just makes it easier to move them around the page without worrying about them ripping the paper. It also means that it is much less fiddly to raise them off the page using foam pads or gel.
My final project was for this months sketch challenge over on the blog, this challenge is definitely worth entering the prize is now a £20 e-voucher to spend in the shop on whatever you want!! Now that has got to be worth entering!
I am stalking the postman at the moment, I am waiting for the August My Creative Scrapbook Limited Edition kit. Having seen the list of contents it is going to be one gorgeous kit!!!! Can't wait to share it with you!
