I'll allow "pinning" as long as you pull up the post & pin from it for a direct link for others. :-)

Moving things around

Do you like the new layout? I think that I do. I can get my ads in here from The Angel Company, give you even MORE links to some great blogs (I'll have a set dedicated to fellow "angels" on here soon) & it's not going to look horribly crowded. I just think that this format is easier on the eyes for traveling around the page. I'd love to know what YOU think of it! I was going to do 4 columns, but I think that 3 is going to be my magic number. Many thanks to Andrea for pointing me in the right direction.

As promised, here are some cards that I made last year. I used clip art/graphics from PC Crafter. They were nice enough on their own, but after the ones that I've made the last few months, going back to these, well, they just seemed a little dowdy in comparison. So I've made some minor adjustments here and there, but I still kept them fairly simple, so the artwork would show better.

This is "Soda Shop" by Laurie Furnell...
Of course, with the ice cream sundaes, I just HAD to use some Liquid Applique & make them look as frothy as I could! I also used a red Sakura Glaze pen on the cherries & a clear Glaze pen on the dishes and spoons.I chalked the foam of the root beer float just a bit and found a nice chocolate-y colored ribbon to finish it all off.This next one was made with pieces from TWO sets by KaeLynn Winn - "Sent With Love" (tags) and "One True Love" (border strip). Some Paper Glaze on the entire "s" tag, around the rim of the "h" tag, rhinestones & studs to accent and it's finished.
This one is from Gina Jane, who left PC Crafter and now owns The Daisie Company. The set is called "Paper Vignettes" and has a very soft feel (I'm a sucker for watercolors). I mounted it onto some paper from Provo Craft that is almost an exact match to the lilac, ran some Sakura Stardust Clear Glitter pen around the dragonfly wings, then covered the entire dragonfly in Paper Glaze.

I hope you enjoyed looking at these. Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
