July Customer Challenge

The July Customer Challenge is Wonderland so I made a  couple of Alice in Wonderland cards and have a video showing how they were made.  These were all made with the same design, but the placement of the designer paper on each make them have a different look.

The video below shows how they were made and suggestions how this design can be used.

Ghecko Galz Customer Challenge

The May Gecko Galz Challenge for May has the theme Vintage Botanicals which is one of my favorite themes.  Here is a pocket for a junk journal using a  Gecko Galz image.

 I made a double pocket out of some book pages.   After making the basic pocket I distressed the edges and the GG image itself before attaching.  A dragonfly sticker was added,

Age of Aquarius

My samples for this month's Gecko Galz challenge Age of Aquarius are below.  I used images that had a double view.  It was fun trying to find other digitals that would layer with them.

"Dream" Challenge and Christmas Tagsl

Below are a couple of samples I created for the "Dream" Customer Challenge.  I used some Cinderella images on my two cards.  If there were anyone who had a dream in life, it was Cinderella.

I used a book page for the background on this card.

Below are my Christmas tags.  This first tag is a little unusual for me as I have never made a tag go sideways.  All images are from Gecko Galz.

Peaceful Christmas

Nothing exemplifies a peaceful environment as a snowfall on the landscape.  Here I have taken one digital from Gecko Galz and cut it to make two matching tags.  Glittering snowflakes were added.

Here I have two pages from a Christmas book I  have been working on.  These also use a couple of Gecko Galz digitals.
