Hi everyone! If you are looking for Memorandum Monday, please scroll to the next post down; and if you are looking for the Love Your Selfie Giveaway (still open until midnight Thursday 18th February) please scroll a little further to here.
It's not often I have two posts ready to go on one day; but today isn't just any Monday, it's Monday 15th and that means it's time for the mid month Gossamer Blue Inspiration Blog Hop. If your kit has just arrived with you, maybe you are wondering where to start? I never can go past a wood veneer without thinking about where I can place it on a page; and this month's Main Kit had me spoilt: the scissors! the speech bubble! I decided I would combine them:
I took my pencil and drew round the speech bubble so that I could stitch its shape
and save the original. And then I was inspired to do a little bit more stitching too. It is, after all, a layout about my eternal, internal struggle. I was brought up in a family of makers. We didn't buy it if we could make it ourselves. And that sticks. Even today I find it hard to spend money on something I could probably have a go at creating myself. In the back of my mind I can hear my Mum saying ..But you could make it yourself for half the price.
Maybe you could find a way to make the wood veneers do double duty for you too? But first, check out what the rest of the Gossamer Blue team have been up to, on the Inspiration Blog Hop. And if you are charmed by the veneers, you can find the kit here
