My Favourite Layout!

I've discovered that this is my favourite layout at the moment. Every card I make using this sketch I really like, which is unusual for me! So here are a few of them. First of all is this gorgeous Edwin! I decided to use papers from the DCWV Rockstar stack, which I have been very reluctant to use in the past and it has sat in my craft room for about a year now! Its one of those sets thats too good to cut up, but I was brave and here is the result! I'm glad I used it now. The little records are so easy to make and so effective. I just cut a few small circles with my nestablities and popped an eyelet in the centre, and then just added a few white highlighted lines.
I liked the card above so much so, that I wanted to re-create a girly one using some of the pink papers from the Rockstar stack. It took me a while to come up with the idea of using the Ipod as I didn't think I had a suitable alternative to the Edwin image, until I woke up the following morning, after having made the card the night before, and realised that I have a Pink Petticoat image of Lola holding an Ipod! I will use that one next time, lol! I find the best ideas usually come after a good nights sleep, but then I have to write them down quickly before I forget! And finally, I bought these Basic Grey papers a month or so ago now, and was really inspired by the colours. I had this Edwin image already coloured and he kind of matches so thought I'd use him.

Hi Zoe

Funny isn't it how some sketches just seem perfect.

Your cards are great and show how even with the same sketch the effect can be completely different.

Lots of original ideas and inspiration there. Love Jules xx
