One Sketch 2 WAYS!

With the busy lifestyles that most of us lead, we often find it difficult to squeeze in a slice of creative time in between all the other responsibilities that a day brings.  At times like this I love to re-use my favourite page maps or sketches with different papers and embellishments, thereby creating a new scrapbook page with the same satisfying result!

In 'Picture Perfect'  I have used Kaisercraft Paper creating a feminine and elegantly styled layout.
In 'Country Living' I have used Fancypants Designs to create a more outdoorsy page.  Note the use of sucker sticks to create the illusion of a picket fence.

Cardmaking with Doodlebug Designs - Take Note Range

 Well say "it has been a while" is the plain truth.

This past year has seen the Graduation of my Younger Son from High School and my Eldest Son from University, we have celebrated our New Home and we have mourned the passing of a Loved One and time like a thief in the night has robbed me of the opportunity of sharing my creativity with all of you. 


2013 is a new year and at the risk of sounding positively optimistic, has the fresh scent of New Ideas, Creative Spirit and Doodlebug Designs!



Their "Take Note" range inspired the "stationary collector" in me and I had great fun using giant sized paper clips and mini bulldog clips from my stash.

Hope you have just as much "FUN" as I did and don't forget to use your Cuttlebug Folders to Emboss the front of your cards for added subtle texture and dimension.
