A quick post to let you know of two newsworthy events happening this week!
OWH's Rebellious Blog Hop
As most of you probably know this Saturday is National Scrapbook Day -- a day filled with lots of scrapbooking parties. And, OWH loves a good party!
But, this will be a scrapbooking party with a bit of a twist. Instead of scrapping pages we'll be scrapping cards. Be sure to check out the Stars and Stamps blog this weekend -- Saturday and Sunday -- for challenges sure to inspire.
Scrapping with Purpose is thrilled to be hosting a challenge on Sunday! :)
Another Rockin' Design by Ashley
Ashley of Pizazz It! fame has posted Sketch #3. Ashley sent me a preview and asked if I'd like to make a companion card. Talk about an offer I couldn't refuse. :)
So, Ashley's May sketch was the inspiration for the card below, which I gave to a colleague at work to commemorate his retirement.
|Kaiser Up, Up and Away collection|
I must say I was at first puzzled as to how to proceed because the sketch has lots of photos. (After all, it is for a scrapbook page!) But, then...
- I rotated the sketch 180 degrees and decided to work with the right side.
- Next, I chose a postcard embellishment left and right sides to take the place of the two photos.
- Finally, I used masculine colors and embellishments to turn a feminine sketch into one suitable for the gentleman who was retiring -- just as Ashley suggests in her book.
Thanks for stopping by on Newsday Tuesday!
