Hello!

Hello! I paper-crafted yesterday! It has been quite awhile since I’ve done anything but sit with my laptop, but it was so much fun just to play around! On Wednesday, I got a HUGE box of paper and accessories from My Mind’s Eye.

So I quickly made this cute and very FAST card using the Quite Contrary line from MME that Zoe Pearn and I designed.  I cut out the little imperfect scallop border by hand and then doodled a border around it to make it look a little more finished. Then I simply added a border sticker, some sticker letters and sticker buttons (with a little twine pulled through the holes). And I finished it off with a rhinestone border from MME’s Lush Line.

Also on the inside, since the b-side of the paper was too busy to write on, I pulled a journal card from Quite Contrary and wrote on that:

Actually playing around with this line made me realize how great it is for card making. Which I’m really excited about because that is probably my favorite thing to do with paper right now!  There are tons of little journal cards and accessories and most of the prints are really small and work well for layering especially when dealing with small spaces like cards. When I find a little free time in a few weeks, I’m just going to sit down and make a huge collection of cards with all this paper!!

Now that we’re up to date on new accessories nothing else seems to matter! But I’ll keep going… In the past month I’ve designed a new paper line along with Deena Rutter The line is really beautiful and elegant and called So Sophie. MME will start selling it very soon and it should be in Local Scrapbooking Stores in April/May
