Months ago, Patti at Scrap for a Cure emailed me to see if I would be interested in being a guest designer for them. I jumped at the chance because I always love supporting good kit clubs, but also because I completely think it's an amazing thing they're doing in supporting various charities each quarter. I just love that. And add to the incentive, the month they asked me for happened to be a BasicGrey packed month. Ah! So I'm officially Miss April...or something like that! ;)
Here are a few projects I created with their fantastic kit:
I don't often do layouts of myself, but I'm trying hard to do better. These shots are from a self-portrait session I was doing to try and get a new headshot! They crack me up and I thought they'd be fun to put on a page. I love love love how the ledger paper by Little Yellow Bicycle (that is also that orange on the reverse side) goes so beautifully with BasicGrey's Marrakech. Good stuff!
This layout was based on a sketch by my uber-talented friend, Becky Fleck. I LOVE sketches when I don't have time to think of a design on my own and Becky's are some of the best. She rocks some serious sketches. I think this is one she did when we did some joint efforts over at the Hero Arts blog. If you haven't checked out her site - PageMaps - you must do so now! :)
And here are a few cards. The first one is a window design that was inspired by Lisa and the girls over at Hero. They just did a week of window cards and I was completely fascinated. This is my first attempt at something even 1/2 as creative. It was definitely fun and I've already tried the technique again!
This is the front (it's laying flat so you can really see the window):
And this is the same card opened:
And a couple of more:
I had a lot of fun with this kit and I really hope you'll check Patti and the girls at Scrap for a Cure out! Thank you so much for letting me be apart of it!
