While I’m waiting for the new releases I’m dying to share with you, I thought it was a perfect time to begin a new feature on the blog. Each week I’ll be posting a new pattern for your cards, handcrafted books and paper crafts. Okay, realistically I’d better make that MOST weeks that I’ll be posting a new pattern. Let’s keep it real.
If you’re like me, there are days when you can stare at a pile of beautiful card-making materials and not have the first idea how to put them together. There are days when, like a writer staring at the blank page in the typewriter, you can’t seem to find a starting place.
These are patterns that I’ve drawn up to help me through those irritating days, and I thought it would be fun to share with all of you. I hope that if you’ll let your imagination run wild with them, and come up with amazing designs that are as loosely or closely based upon the basic design as inspiration dictates. And I hope that you’ll share once you’ve had fun playing with them because I’d LOVE to see what you come up with. If you decide to share these patterns, or use them for your own challenges, please leave the copyright information intact so that people can find their way back here for more.
This sample card was created using digital background papers from the Bits of Ivory SOFT SPRING DIGI PAPERS, the APRIL BLOSSOMS CROCUS DIGI STAMP and one of the sentiments from the GARDEN SENTIMENTS DIGI STAMP.
