Something new from me

Good morning Tuesday! For today's Scrapbuggy project I wanted to do something I had not yet tried. I'm very pleased and hope you like it. 


I made my first easel card! If you haven't made one yet, do it. It's really a lot easier than it looks. I watched a few vid tutes on them and then decided just to go for it, and this is what I came up with. I had made the front of the card already so the measurements on all the other projects didn't fit for what I needed. At any rate, once you do it, you'll see how simpy-pimpy it is and won't need measurements or anything like that. FUN!


This is what it looks like straight on when opened.

This is the simple piece I added to the bottom so the card will not close up when standing. Adding an extra piece to the top gives it just enough of an edge for it to catch on.

And now let's get down to the details. I used the Lifestyle Crafts nesting frames and nesting circles for my sentiments. Love combining the nesting shapes for different looks.


And of course, more handmade flowers. I don't know what it is about these, but I sure enjoy making them and using them on my projects! When you make your own, you can match them to anything!
