Are you ready? (pic heavy)

I haven't shared in AGES. So here are some (not all, we'd be here forever) of my fave pages from the last few months Smile I have been without my scrappy laptop for 3 weeks now, I'm hoping to get it back tomorrow. Scrapping on dh's laptop is difficult because he hovers over me, wanting it back lol. Plus, his keyboard is REALLY hard to use because you have to punch the keys so hard, I miss letters constantly.

First, 3 cards:
Retirement Card

Halloween Card

And some layouts:

This one is being published in the Log Your Memory Yearbook

I am currently obsessed with using busy backgrounds

See? lol

This one is also a free QP on my blog

And this one was for SNR magazine

Phew ...

LOVE the cards! Especially the love birds and the retirement one. I wish we saw more cards from you! Do you cut the images out, or printed like that? ((The boat looks like it's cut out))

The went wrong page is hilarious. I don't know if you meant to, but you have a couple spelling errors. Must be dh's laptop, LOL. Where and awkward in the first line. Biggrin

Teeheee

I have a secret

I didn't actually even print the cards out. I have a picture of a blank card, I just took the jpeg and skewed it and put it on the card picture ... I did print them out for the occasions, but I tend to do that at night and can't get a good pic ... so I do that instead Smile So, to answer your question - no cutting.

What!? I would have never guessed. When are you going to get your Etsy shop up and going? I'd love to buy our holiday card from you.

lol ok, I design them in photoshop, then print them on 4x6 photo paper and attach to prefold card.

But these ones I printed at night and can't get a good pic at night, so I have a picture of a blank card and I just put the photoshop image on top of it and skew it to make it look like it's actually on the card. I need to take some other pics of blank cards on sunny days though so I have a variety of backgrounds. And yes, way too long ... I'm trying to get better!

i love that first card!!! The LOs are great, but I really like that one with the especially busy paper (just under where you wrote that you are into busy papers lately). Great to see some work from you!

I don't know, I just love your style! Seriously, you could make good money designing photo cards/announcements and selling them on Etsy.
