Well hello there – Miriam Thomas

Well hello there

| Posted in Cardmaking

The other day I shared a little box.  While the concept of the box is great- the colour combinations weren’t working for me at all.  I was determined however, to make use the of Beyond the Garden Designer series paper. It is designed to work with the really lovely “Fabulous Floret Stamp set” but as I don’t have that stamp set I was feeling a little stumped.  Yes- we all have those creative blocks sometimes.

The paper looked appealing enough in the catalogue for me to purchase so I knew I could make it work….and make it work I did.  What I did was take something that wasn’t working for me in the beginning (the paper) and teamed it up with a few things I LOVE.  I love love LOVE the colours Blushing Bride (lovely musk pink) and Rose Red (A deep warm pink) These aren’t the colours indicated as a match for the patterned paper in the mini catalogue but I could see hints of these colours in elements on some of the sheets of paper.  I also LOVE the stamps sets called “Creative Elements” and “My Friend”. So I combined the patterned paper with some favourite stamp sets and got this…… In the end I was really happy with how it turned out.  What do you think?

My next problem was that I couldn’t decide whether to put the sentiment in centre, towards the top OR towards the bottom….so I tested them all out! 🙂

Do you have a preference?  I asked my husband what he liked best and he politely responded by saying “You can do whatever you want!”   Well Yes of course I can- I already knew that!

So…I haven’t shared a scrapbook page in a while.  Do you want to see one of those?  Stay tuned- I might just have one to share.
