Brutus Monroe, Cards, Classes, home & holiday projects

Fall Sampler

Hi Angels!

I had a lot of fun designing for class this week although having hubby home for an extra week after vacation threw me off my timeline. I was scrambling to finish up the design & teach at the same time.

This class was requested by one of the AngelS and it came out beautifully. We opted to do the four seasons instead of holidays. The winter class is scheduled for just a couple of weeks from now.

The card was a bonus since the Lawn Fawn Stitched Pumpkin Frame cuts out extras that can be swapped between patterns & colors.

I also used the Tim Holtz Impresslits Leaf cut & emboss folder, a variety of dies in my stash and stamps from Brutus Monroe, FSJ & Stampin’ Up!

Okay it’s confession time… for all the designing I do, I have a bit of a problem with 3-D visualization. I did not think the frame was sized right to fit the 12 x 12 layout. Why? Because I was thinking the layout went on the glass like a regular picture not to the back of the shadow box. I really struggle with figuring out anything with depth. So I trimmed the layout to fit to the glass & ended up having to mat it on another 12 x 12 so it did show properly. Bonus, the layout is much sturdier now. You would never know if I hadn’t fessed up. But it’s important to share what we learn & struggle with because it might just help someone else along the creative path.

I hope to get back to my watercolor class soon but I have some Troop business to take care of & birthday & sympathy cards to make.

I hope you are finding time to be creative.

Thanks for stopping by.

Comments are a blessing.
