Magazine Monday!

Happy Monday!

I’m really enjoying Magazine Monday. It encourages me to go through the stash of magazines I have and actually try some of the projects that have caught my eye.

This week I pulled out the Feb. 2008 issue of Crafts n Things magazine. The designer, Lindsey Botkin is multi-published in magazines and is a SplitcoastStamper member . I hope you’ll check out her blog and her GALLERY. She does great work!

Here is a sketch of the card Lindsey created. If you can get a hold of the magazine, check out her color scheme. It is pretty and went well with the verse image she used.

She used Dutch Girl Collection – Audrey papers, black buttons, a white heart, and narrow
black organza ribbon with white polka dots.

I kept the sketch as it was but changed it up a bit.
I substituted the buttons for bling to help pull the bling from the sentiment mat. I also chose to go with a more Victorian look with the lace and color tones.
The papers are from a K & Company vintage slab.

What magazine do you have stashed back for 'someday'. Pick your 'Someday' and play!

Creative Blessings!
