613 Avenue Create - Challenge #8

Hello friends and family,

613 Avenue Create is hosting another challenge this week, and the theme is "Anything Goes".  The twist to this challenge is to "Pile it On" (opposite of CAS - clean and simple, LOL!) 

This week, the design team used images from one of our sponsors, Bugaboo Stamps, to help give you some inspiration.  Please be sure to visit our neighborhood, and drop off your projects by Saturday, March 2 @ 8:00 pm (EST)! 

Here's my take on the challenge (Note:  this card is not for "sensitive" folks!)

First Tri-fold Shutter Card

Greetings Crafty People,

Many times when I make cards, I find that my style is typically CAS - clean and simple.  Well, in honor of DH's birthday, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try a tri-fold shutter card.  Let me just say... OMG!!!  Making this card was trying, but determination prevailed!!  Below is the end result of all of my perseverance...

Recipe:  I used the print and cut feature on the Silhouette Cameo.  Digi is from Kenny K, colored with Copics.  Purple paper is from DCWV, and decorative "Silver Swirl on White" paper (Paper Company, purchased at M's).  TFL.

613 Avenue Create - Challenge #6

Greetings Friends and Family,

It's been about a month since my last post.  I am still in recovery mode, but, more and more, I am able to get back into the craft that I love so much! 

There has also been some transition in the Design Team world... Jackson's Digital Expressions DT has moved to a new neighborhood... 613 Avenue Create!  Please join us in this week's sketch challenge, which is being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps!  Be sure to visit the neighborhood for some inspiration, and to post your creations in the neighborhood @ 613 Avenue Create.  TFL.
