This week I’m actually posting from beautiful Gran Canaria (one of Spain’s Canary Islands just off the southern coast of Morocco), so I’m at least really feeling summer’s Promise of Bloom 🙂
Because of my holiday there will be no video this week, but I will share two very Summer-spirited cards with you.
My tip for you this week is one of Affordability & Frugality: the design paper you’re using does not have to be expensive, nor of ‘Brands of Renown’ so to speak, for you to be able to create some lovely cards!
For instance, the paper I used here was somewhere in the obscure dollar bin of a very affordable (and therefore not the hippest) line of shops in the Netherlands. So the paper may be brandless, but applied well it is able to remind us of a festive summer garden party nonetheless!
So, don’t skip everything that has no brand worth mentioning, but go treasure hunting and see what you can come up with! For some inspiration, check out the other projects that I created with paper lines belonging to those Cheap & Brandless Ones… 😉
Enjoy, and see you next week!
Card 1: Two bi-fold doorlets, held together with a bow
Doorlets opening up to the journalling spot inside – on which I wrote a personal wish to my aunt
Card 2: Tri-fold card with magnetized closure
Opening up to a journalling spot inside. Just like card 1, this card can stand on its own when opened.
