I'm beyond thrilled to announce that I've been asked to be a part of the 2011-2012 Bella Blvd. Design Team!
Would woulda thought it? ME, a card maker! Hee! Don't get me wrong, I'm SUPER excited about this. And I'm still very humbled that I'm in such amazing company with that list of all-stars. I just still getting a kick out of it, that's all.
If truth be told, I still feel like I'm a beginner card maker. If you kept up with me for long, then you KNOW that. Cards used to be my nemesis. But then something clicked. I found a rhythm and style that works for me and now I like making cards. They're fun. It's always been a "side" job, kind of a way to use up my scraps that are leftover from layouts. But now, I guess it's for real. And it's still going to be fun!
I love that cards don't take me as long as a layout. I love that they're fun and whimsical and give me a chance to "play". I don't stress over cards the way that I do over layouts. They just kind of come together. And I'm not exaggerating when I say that my cards for my Bella submission literally just came together, as if on their own. It was refreshing and nice change of pace. So with this in mind, I'm really looking forward to what the next year has in store for me as a card designer. It's a whole new adventure for me.
For now, I'll leave you with one of my card submissions.
And lastly, I want thank you Stephanie and Laura for giving me this incredible opportunity! I can't WAIT to get to work! :D
