Summer School

Hello Everyone,

Last night my mom and I spent some time making a few cards for the My Favorite Things Summer School challenges. After watching all of the videos and trying the projects for ourselves, we learned a few new tricks that will be helpful in the future. 

Here are all the completed assignments...
The idea of white space doesn’t refer to a primarily white card 
 but rather, the idea of leaving a significant portion of your design open, free from embellishment, allowing your focal point to truly shine.


 Primary colors are among the first we learn as kids and for that reason, sometimes have a bad rap as being a childish choice for projects. Really though, primary colors are essential. Not only do they provided the basis for our other colors, they also impart such a playful cheeriness (kid card or not) that they shouldn’t be overlooked.


Repetition reinforces a theme within your projects. Switching things up — either by introducing another color or including an unexpected element into a recognizable pattern, keeps the overall look interesting.


Complementary colors refer to colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel — yellow-purple, red-green, and orange-blue being the traditional complementary pairings.


 
 Symmetry refers to positioning your elements mirrored across an imaginary line that divides your project into even segments. It’s a great method for achieving balance in your design and is a reliable means of laying out your card elements when you don’t have a lot of planning time to spare.



Feeling accomplished!

You Light Up My Life

Hello,
Recently my mom and I went to the My Favorite Things store and bought some new goodies. Since I was home for the Fourth of July, I felt like it was the perfect time to make a few cards in my spare time. One of the new stamp sets we purchased was the fireworks set from the June release. I absolutely love how these fireworks turned out! They are even better than I expected.

Congrats!

Hello everyone,
Today I decided to make a baby card using the MFT giraffe set. These stamps are too cute and very versatile. They can be used for birthday cards, baby cards, and thank you cards.
