Check out ScrapGal's GalBlog

Check out ScrapGal's GalBlog for my new post...


My challenge for everyone is to try a project using black as your base color. These two cards are examples that I made using black cardstock as the bases. For whatever reason, I have been loving lots of black lately. If I'm not using black for my background paper, I'm matting everything on the page in black. Maybe my wardrobe is rubbing off on my crafts. I'm the gal who has a dozen pairs of black pants (well, a couple are dark gray)!

So, one example is hip and fun using the Love, Elsie line.

The other is a bit more elegant with lovely swirls and a little punch of green.

Whatever style you try or prefer, begin with black and see where it takes you.

Have fun! Laura

A Vacation Day

Yea! I have vacation today. Just doing some laundry and put the dishes in the dishwasher. I have so much more cleaning and housework to do, but I think I might get back to working on the projects on my craft table instead! I'm working on some projects using the new ColorCore Cardstock - Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock. It's fun. Pick some up and give it a try.

I have some new music on my iPod to play. Kate Nash, Fly Leaf, Anya Marina, Feist, Lily Allen, and The Pierces. I still need to get my Regina Spektor CDs uploaded though. She is my absolute favorite of late.

Well, this is my first real Blog post. Feels a little weird just randomly typing about my day... Maybe next time I'll have something more crafty for you.
