Sometimes when one door closes, another one opens...
I am so excited to announce that I will be joining the Design Team at the Paper Poppy Kit Co. I was so flattered when Aphra Bolyer, who I so admire as a designer, asked me to join she and Frances Sylvia to become a party of three. The kits are yummy and I am going to enjoy this new adventure. Yesterday I hinted I would be in some new places, so please come visit the blog to learn more about Paper Poppy. You are going to love it there.
I recently bought a notch and die tool from Basic Grey and wanted to experiment with it a bit. Used it to create the half circles notched in my card. Then, made the letter M with my Plantin Schoolbook cartridge on my Cricut as well as the blue flourish from my Calligraphy cartridge. The packaging from the Prima Marketing stamp that I used to pattern the letter M was the perfect matte for my it. I just inked it a bit to give it a little more definition. Feels good to use the packaging instead of throwing it away.
These projects were created with thePaper Poppy April kit featuring Pink Paislee Bayberry and Basic Grey Green at Heart. Who knew those lines were like peas and carrots together? Well... Aphra did and these projects were fun to create and I love how the kit has some really unique elements, like the authentic music sheets (mine even had pencil marks where someone had edited the music - how cool is that), that pull it together so perfectly.
