Hello, my friends! I apologize I’m not around as much this month. The deadline for the play that I’ve been commissioned to write is approaching ahhhh! While it is coming along, I am spread a little thin this month. But hey, I’m not complaining at all. Life is so funny sometimes – theatrically, I struggled for decades while pounding the pavement and finding a way to survive. Then when I left Los Angeles, opportunities starting falling into my lap. And truthfully I wasn’t even trying anymore! Maybe the universe is trying to tell me something.
Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to. I will have a few crafty posts to share with you next week, but for now, I’d like to share with you a few projects of mine that have just been published in the newest issue of CREATE Magazine from Scrapbook Generation. I was especially pleased with the card I crafted for this issue – it’s one of my favorites so far this year. And it was derived from a sketch! Yeah, I know, you’re saying, “Vivian never works with sketches!” Go figure.
I hope you’ll click the link to the magazine and check out all the inspiration provided by the staff and our Sizzix design team in July’s issue.
For this card I used lovely nature themed dies from Sizzix paired with newly released Colorbox Spritzers from Clearsnap, all linked in the supply list below. Once you’ve flipped through, stop back and let me know how you like the magazine!
