I love top 10 lists. This week I will be sharing my favorite cards, layouts and altered projects of 2011. In this case, I went over 10 just a bit. lol.
2011 was a great year for me for cardmakinig. I was blessed to have several cards published and two of my favorite cards of the year are currently being added to magazines so I can't show them here just yet. But, there are plenty of others that I truly loved and here they are....
This was my number 1 fave! I created it while on the DT for Cardabilities.
I loved using Outer Stairstep card bases to create some of my most favorite cards of the year. This card features gorgeous papers from Pion Design.
The Nantucket collection from Pink Paislee was another one of my favorite collections of the year. This was my first Cardabilities DT project.
Who doesn't love black and pink?
I loved the Soiree collection from Pink Paislee. The bright colors just drew me in! This card designed itself! lol.
LaBlanche Stamps quickly became one of my favorites in 2011. I didn't share this card online as it was made a sample for a card kit I designed. I just love this stamp called Tree with Notes.
The Shabby Tea Room is one of my favorite card challenge sites. I created this card when I had the honor of being a guest designer for the first week in July. What theme could be more fitting?
Everyone who knows me knows I love Graphic 45! The Christmas Emporium collection was one of the most exciting and beautiful holiday collections of the year. This card was created for Summer CHA.
I don't enter many contests, but I stepped out of my comfort zone and created this card for a guest design spot with Verve Stamps for the month of July. I am happy to say that I was chosen and it is all because of this gorgeous sentiment stamp and Bo Bunny papers.
Here is another one of my favorite cards of the year! I think it's the color combo and that bow made with May Arts ribbon. I couldn't give this one away...I love it too much! lol.
This circle pop-up card earned many fans this year. I used a template that I had to fight with on occasion...but...it was worth it!
Here's a look at the card when it opens.
I couldn't stop using the Christmas Emporium collection from Graphic 45. The images and colors truly inspired me this year.
Now, it's time for me to try to pick my favorite layouts. It's not going to be easy. lol.
Thanks so much for joining me today.
