Using Scrap Paper - #GDP098


Hello everyone! It has been two weeks since my last blog post and it has felt like a lifetime! I actually haven't stamped in over a month. Thanks to the wonders of technology, I was able to pre-schedule all of my projects and posts while we were away on the Stampin' Up! Incentive trip.

We returned from Phuket, Thailand on July 16th and it has been hard getting back into the swing of things. Our jet leg lasted at least a week, the kids even fell asleep by 6:00pm every night, without eating dinner.

This past week I got to spend a solid, blissful day in my craft room creating and I have beautiful projects ready to share with you throughout August. Today I am sharing a card that I created for the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP098.


A layout sketch like this makes perfect use of those scraps you have laying around! I had these scrap pieces of Designer Series Paper on my desk ...


Even my card base was a scrap. At an event, I had a customer accidentally score the card base at the wrong dimension. I always insist that my customers take a new piece of paper and try again, after all it is only cardstock! As a result I had this mis-folded card in my scrap pile. I mounted a layer of Whisper White cardstock inside and it added a white strip along the bottom when it is closed, a great use of that misfit card.

Have a creative day!

Dragonfly Dreams - #GDP096


Hello! Today I am creating for the Global Design Project challenge #GDP096. 


Tanja Kolar is an amazing designer and her beautiful dragonfly card is stunning, don't you think? I could not wait to CASE her and create my own dragonfly card.


CASE means to Copy And Selectively Edit. I used Tanya's layout, changed some colors and added a little "Krista" flare to create my own version.



Visit the Global Design Project each week to see a new challenge. We have a very talented design team over at the GDP, you will be inspired! If you are creating please share! Full details are at the GDP site.

Have a creative day,
