online card classes his & hers

It’s day 1 at @onlinecardclass His & Hers, and I tried out the same sketch for a ‘his’, ‘hers’ and what I think to be ‘anyone’. There really isn’t a huge amount of deviation from the sketch, and I loved trying out my new @lawnfawn stamps. I’ve never really been much of a stamper so was pleased with my modest efforts. I have to say I’m loving that stripy paper from the Soho Garden collection. I haven’t had much time to think about my his and hers lists, so I’ll post that later.

An older photo, but I realised I hadn’t posted a how to, not much of a how to really as I don’t have step by step photos, but worth a mention that this is just a sheet of 8.5 x 11” with the word love printed in the palest grey in my chosen font then covered over with any tiny embellishment I could get to fit, kinda cute really

@scrappyjedi certainly inspired my creativity on this layout, as I’m trying to replicate aspects of her fun style and informal relaxed layouts. I have to say I love the splash of pink in this layout, the colours are very bold for me, but I was so excited about picking up the @amcrafts @amytangerine sketchbook pad that I picked up two! :[ There is a certain amount of older stash in there too so I can be proud.
