Card by Dale

As my tutorial this month I have created a quick and easy card.

Start with a piece of blue cardstock. On the inside use a rectangle of yellow paper and a scrap piece of blue cardstock. It creates a nice focus point for your sentiment and message to go on.

Next I have used a wavy 12" trimmer to cute 5 x 1cm strips of the Indigo Bleu paper. I have then cut them in half and used 5 strips of one side and woven the 5 strips of the other side through them. Adhere these to your card.

Use a piece of the Fancy Pants paper across the bottom.
Mount your lilybee sentiment sticker on to the lilybee double dutch paper and add two mini brads.
Adhere to card.


Products used from the Mystical shop:

Pink Paislee Indigo Bleu/Jacquard paper - both sides
blue cardstock
Fancy Pants What a Wonderful Day pp
lilybee Double Dutch croquet pp
Ki Memories mini brads - red
lilybee double dutch sticker

Gallery Pick

If you are like me, you have a ton of photos, but for some reason only create single page layouts....well for my gallery pick I wanted to draw your attention to this lovely double page layout. It is a layout from our May Double Up Cybercrop where Mel71hortin created a beautiful design across the two pages to share her wonderful photos of her busy toddler.
The use of the pink and yellow together is a wonderful combination that reminds me of spring and the butterflies enhance that feeling. Such a stunning page, thanks for sharing Mel.

Dale's gallery pick

Slip and Slide - Toni

Check out this bright and fun layout by Toni for Challenge 1 of Mystical's Fairytale competition - Hansel and Gretel.
I love layouts that use multiple photos to tell a story. Aren't they great action shots?
