Time to Experiment!



So I have set a new goal for myself. I want to make some improvements with my card-making skills and my abilities to alter things. My current stuff is okay, but it takes so long and I struggle with the details. I fully admit that I don't enjoy these aspects of the craft as much as I like creating layouts and mini albums. But I would like to make a company team one day (BooHoo over Dream Street). To make that happen, I need to be able to make great cards. So I am on the hunt for good websites, great card designers, tutorials--all to give me ideas and inspiration. Tell me about your favorites. Share a tip with me about cards and altering objects.

I actually love the cute gift card holder that I created above. It was so easy and who wouldn't enjoy getting their gift card in something pretty! Adds a special touch!

Don't forget to check out the calls for the December issue of ScrapStreet.com Magazine. For my journaling column, I am focusing on the WH questions with a twist. If you are interested in submitting a page to me to be considered for publication, send me an email at stacey@scrapstreet.com and I will get you details!

TGIF!
