be yourself


It's been a while since I entered a challenge, so when Lawnscaping came up with this:


I thought it would be a good opportunity to finally play with some of Lawn Fawn's adorable stamps like the fabulous gnome and mushroom, as well as breaking out Lawn Fawn's happy 'Bright Side' paper collection! I took inspiration from this illustrated quote I found on Pinterest by the great Oscar Wilde: Be yourself, everyone else is taken. I used Claire's & Quinn's ABCs to stamp out the quote. Everything except for the star and mushroom are paper pieced using Lawn Fawn's gorgeous paper (the speckled pink paper is my favourite). The rest was coloured with copics.

It took me ages especially all those letters...but I really enjoyed making this card :)

Thanks for stopping by! :)

cards

Wow, it's been ages since I updated this blog! I haven't had much time to make cards which is a shame. It's definitely something I'm wanting to do more regularly. I'm thinking of making a card at least once a week. That way I'm hoping I can stretch my creative muscles and complete a card in less time. On average a card can take me up to 3 hours. I'm still very slow! 

I made these two birthday cards using Basic Grey's gorgeous 'Konnichiwa' line. Aren't the chipboard stickers sweet? Besides being a paper hoarder, I'm a huge chipboard hoarder too...I hope to make more cards with my chipboard stash...







I made my mum a Mother's Day card using the Paper Made Bakery's Portobello Road kit and Paper Smooch's cute cameo stamp from 'Pretty Momma'. 



Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back soon with another card or two! :)
