The one that caught me by surprise

I've used nearly every sheet of my BG Wisteria paper pad, but there are a couple of them that I've found to be a colour that just doesn't match anything else in my stash. But look, here they are on a card! Imagine my surprise when this card just kind of fell together all on its own from paper scraps and other leftovers on my desk. I still don't know exactly how that happened...

Oceanspray edging scarf

I love the edging of the triangular shawl Oceanspray, but the body is a bit on the dull side for me. But then I came across this project and realised there was a way to utilise that edging in a different way! I've added a garter stitch border where the main body would be, it is widest at the centre and tapers towards the edges. This, along with some intentionally curved blocking, helps create a crescent shape that falls nicely over the shoulders.
For the details on how I modified the pattern, please visit my Ravelry project page.

Sweet girl

New baby arrival! This card isn't really baby pink, but still works, right? It is pink after all... :)

Enjoy the ride

I made this one for a colleague that started a new job. I often go for arrows as a symbol of moving on, or changing something in our lives. This isn't a topic that's extensively covered in scrapping or card making supplies, so I have to invent my own decorations...
Those cork arrow stickers are lovely! I used some molding paste and a mask to add another three-dimensional aspect to the card.

Make a wish

PL supplies in action again! Clean and simple, modern and fresh colours. Kind of a breath of fresh air after a couple of heavily embellished vintage styled cards. But I have no doubt that I'll soon flip the switch the other way again, I just can't land on a single style. Variation is the key to happiness. :)
