A STROKE OF GENIOUS

My fellow Demo, Loraine has shamed me I'm afraid. She is a true busy bee, posting to her blog daily and crafting just as often it would seem. So here I am, not once but twice in one day! Beat that Loraine, LOL! 


Gosh....I wish I had thought of this idea myself. In fact I am a tad annoyed that I didn't, especially as I have just been reading up on a little (but wonderful) thing they call progressive scrapbooking. This is where you take a 6x6 scrapbook layout and turn it into a 12x12 page. Give me time folks, I will get busy with that sometime very soon! 


So, the idea here is progressive card making! You start with a 3x3 card and turn it into something larger. The 3x3's are lovely but they can be a bit impractical at times so if you have a fair few lying around, then this idea is a fantastic one. Here is one I came up with. Good on you for thinking up such a gemHeather! 


3x3 card.
Using the stamp sets, "Cheers and Wishes" and "A Good Egg
Cardstock: Regal Rose and a Love Note
Ink: Versa Mark and Pixie Pink
Ribbon: 1/4" Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon

Love those dots! 



 Finished, progressed card!
A5 sized, using the super cute Hedgehog from the "Fun and Fast Notes" stamp set
Cardstock: Tempting Turquoise, Regal Rose
Additional ink: Brilliant Blue
1 3/8 circle punch


Still using up my "scraps" by the way!!

What a good idea. Both cards are lovely - I love the distressed edges on the second one.
