Laura's Sketch #56: 2 Styles




Happy Friday! Hope y'all have had a great week and are ready for the weekend!


Remember yesterday when I challenged myself to make 4 cards in different styles using one sketch like Kim Hughes did in Card Style? Well, I gave it a go using fabby Laura's Sketch #56 over at 2S4Y, and...it was harder than I thought! lol! I only managed to finish 2 styles so far. What style do you think the one above is? Hopefully, you guessed Shabby & Vintage, because that's what I was going for! You don't know how many times I *thought* I was finished, but I had to keep going back to add more stuff, it was a real struggle! lol! Don't forget, you can enter your Shabby Vintage cards into Cath's Moxie Fab World challenge here!



Okay, here's the second one (I was going for Fun & Cute, be kind!):



So, I learned it's harder than I thought to break out of your ordinary style, which is normally Clean & Graphic for me. I was putting off Classy & Elegant until the end, I think that's the very hardest for me. What's your normal style? What's hardest for you? Let me know if you try the 4 styles challenge!


Okay, better get moving, because guess where I'm going today?! I'm going here to take this class with Jenni Bowlin! I know, shut up, right?! My mates (I watched House Hunters International in Australia last night, and now my friends are going to be called mates!), and I are roadtripping down to Waco for the day, fun, fun, fun!






Hope you have a great Friday! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

WOW, I am in love with your first card and I can't even believe that these cards are both from the same sketch! They are both fabulous! You totally nailed the vintage, I wouldn't guess that this isn't a style that you are comfortable with. I love it! The little hatted guy totally makes your second card.Too cute!

Both cards are fabulous, but I LOVE the first one. Lucky you getting to take a class with the one and only Jenni Bowlin. Hope you post pictures of your finished projects.

Oh, both of these cards turned out so cute! I especially love the shabby vintage card! The tickets with the lace and flower is divine!

Have fun at the Jenni Bowlin class! That sounds like great fun! I wish I was one of your mates going with ya!

Love that first card. It has a vintage feel but with fresh colors. Great layout too. Your little album is great too.

Courtney said...

You totally nailed the shabby vintage style on the first. Love how you used the tickets. Second card is super cute. And lastly I must say that I am insanely jealous that you get to take a class with Jenni Bowlin. She's teaching a class in the DC area this summer - the summer I decide not to spend there. Ugghhh. Oh well. Have fun!!!
