We use Stampin' Up! products and share with you our creative process along with our designs.
I'm going to start by answering a question........no I'm not..... I'm gonna show you my card!
Now, let me begin with Question number 4...
4.How does your creative process work?
So, I didn't think I had a creative process til I had to think about this blog hop. I went to make my swaps for Leadership and needed to design. I'm naturally and proudly, a copier! I can take what others design and make it my own in a flourish and my customers don't seem to care when I say, "I didn't design that, it was a swap", or "I found it on Pinterest". So when I'm forced to design from scratch, I find that I pick a stamp I like or haven't played with in awhile and maybe a designer paper or cardstock that I want to use then go to my scrap boxes:
|Box where I toss all my little extras...leftovers from class, events. My daughter tries to toss these!|
|and these are the 2 things that I found that would go well with the designer paper that I had in mind from Sale A Bration|
|Then I went to my scrap box....here it is again...my mom made it back when she used to hate waiting for my dad to do carpentry work for her|
|It's 5"X13" by 'very long' and we took file folders and cut off the bottom, taped them and it holds my sorted scraps. Each color has a folder. It's the first place I look when I need a small piece for a card|
Check out the fringe on left below....it's from our white jute ribbon on page 43 of the Occasions catalog. I just cut up through the strings of jute and then fringed by pulling out several of the strings...very easy!
