Cards - March 2019

This is the first of quite a few posts coming up featuring the recent cards I've made for swap groups.. 
As I had taken quite a long break from crafting (2yrs), then started and again took a 6 month break after I made like 4 things... I wanted something to hold me accountable and commit to make sure I get the crafting therapy in that so many of us crafters love! :) 

So I signed up to a few card swap groups here in Australia and of course I am not back on the Design Team for Lasting Memories Layout Challenges... These have been so good at keeping me on track and making sure I have no excuse to put things off and cause the swaps all have different themes or folds it's actually been quite fun learning new styles. 

In  the coming weeks I will be catching up on posting these cards here to my blog.. So please do come back and check them out...

Lasting Memories 454 - Red White & Blue

DT Button

Our theme for July is 'Patriotism'... So all of our challenges are set to celebrate our countries in some form..
As the USA have just celebrated July 4th - Independence Day, we are asking for a RED, WHITE & BLUE themed layout..
As I'm an Aussie, we don't celebrate this day, so I decided to do a Red, White & Blue based layout featuring a school theme for my DT make..

Welcome back Crafters.. I have been in crafting overload lately and have been loving the mojo spilling out! I haven't been able to share the creations just yet, but am keen to very soon..
First on the list is this DT make for Lasting Memories. As we don't celebrate Independence Day here in Australia, I chose to make a layout based on the Red, White & Blue theme instead.. I used the old Kaiser "School Days" collection to feature an adorable photo of Hunter receiving an award at school last month..

I started off with the red base and lightly swiped some white gesso at the top and bottom just o highlight the separation between the coloured pattern papers..
I have only torn the bottom, to add that extra bit of texture but only subtly..

My favourite part of this layout is definitely the little word descriptions.. These were cut off another pattern paper in the collection. I matted on some blue cardstock that matched the blue background paper. The super cute tags are also matted and then slid under the definitions.. 

No photo description available.

To add some elements and embellishments, I used a small background numbers stamp, word tags popped up with 3D tape and some twine.. Quite a simple layout, but with the right papers it has just enough in it to keep the eye entertained and engaged.. 

What do you think?

 Thank you very much for joining me today and I'm so excited to be able to share with you all the creations for my first month back joining the Lasting Memories Design Team! 
I really hope that you will drop by the blog and check out the inspiration from the rest of the team members and then get creative to link up your own entry.. There is plenty of options for this challenge theme, we all have some  ****** laying around somewhere.. lol 

Thanks again, Toni.. xoxo
