Beautiful: Inside & Out

I thought I might make a nice summery card.
I also wanted an encouraging greeting for the recipient.

The image is from Sassy Studio Designs and I have coloured it using my Promarkers.
I lightened all the edges with Picket Fence Distress Stain to give the card a softer look.

I would like to Enter this into SSD's August DT Call.

Handmade Paper Fun

Here are some projects I have made with different handmade papers.

The first project is a mini album I made. It is a combination of handmade and recycled materials.
The cover is made by wraping handmade paper around recycled cardboard.
I inked the paper, embossed, then inked again before spritzing with some homemade glimmer mist.
I then wrapped my paper around my cardboard (I made this 2 layers thick for strength and stability).
I covered the inside with recycled paper and attached my pages using Laura Denison's (Following the Paper Trail) Stack the Deck binding.

The next are combinations of handmade papers mixed with cardstock and recycled materials. I love laying all the different layers as it provides great dimension and texture.
