Blog’s third birthday

IMG_3822

 

This blog turned 3 today. For me, it’s amazing to look back on the dozens of entries (this is post No. 125) and see how my blog and craft have evolved in a few years.

I’ve been making cards for more than a decade, and though I have developed a certain style, it gradually has changed. My cards have reflected trends and technology, such as my Silhouette, which connects my graphic design skills with paper crafting.

I have gained followers and found inspiration from other blogging crafters because I created this site. Thank you for spending time perusing, reading and commenting on this blog!

Here’s a colorful, fun birthday card that I created for one of my coworkers. He loves music — he always has background music quietly playing at his desk, and he occasionally breaks out into song. He has a lot of vocal talent unfortunately unmatched by his office mates. The inside of the card reads, “We would sing, but we can’t carry a tune like you!”

Die-cuts: musical flourishes by Snapdragon Snippets (which I slightly modified), music notes by Echo Park (I created outline pieces) and my sunburst pattern

Font: Lobster (I created outline pieces)

Patterned paper: neon paper by American Crafts

Cardstock: silver linen specialty by Hot Off The Press neon blue, textured white and black

  1. Cool card – I agree how skills evolve through the years and now we can manipulate technology and make it our own! Need to dust off that Silhouette of mine! LOL!!
