Hello Sweeties

Today I’m up on Maja Design blog with a new set of cards featuring one of my favorite collection Enjoying Outdoors.

Lavender Card by Pascale B.

Making cards is a good way to get rid of all the leftovers of papers you have accumulated over the past months or should I say years. I don’t know how you keep them, but I found that keeping them in a pocket with the collection is the best way to use them. When I was first starting scrapbooking I put all the leftovers together, but when I wanted one, well, I never found the right one! Now I know that if I don’t find it, it’s because I don’t have it and I will have to cut some beautiful paper! Let see how I made these cards!

Even if both cards look different, the way I made them is the same. First, I chose in my leftover from the Enjoying Outdoors collection, which one I could use. When I didn’t find the right one, My next move is to look in the 6×6 paper pad.

When I found all the scraps of paper I needed, I inked the edges to add some contrast before gluing them directly to the card base.

I die cut some leaves in two green papers from the collection and I inked the edges.

Then I added a few flowers.

On this card, I even added some lavender sprigs from my garden. To prevent them from falling apart when they dried, I covered them with gel medium.

And to finish the layout of the cards I added some microbeads.

Hello, I’m Pascale B. from France.
Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don’t know how to define my style, perhaps something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition.

    So pretty! The second card is my favorite. Great tip you gave about covering the lavender from your garden with gel medium.
