one image – twice different

Hello ladies… today I have want to show you my first “new” Lili of the Valley since the restructure of the Design Team. Some may have noticed that I have not been using the images in a while and the changes that have been going on over on the site.
The team got some new instructions and terms just prior to Christmas and I also had to have a think if I can commit to the new requirements, over the holidays.

I do not want to go into all details obviously because it is not important for my readers Smile but one of the instructions is that we now will get given themes and / or more given images we are going to use during a month. The image I used on my card I was able to choose myself out of the “Love” line. I always adored this cute image “on the Garden wall” very much and had it for quite a long time on my list to make a card with.

The other probably more exciting and interesting news for readers and Lili of the Valley fans are that from now on the Lili of the Valley Inspiration site will feature way more ideas how to use the images on 3D projects or just simply different things than just a card. Each Designer is going to tackle per month a task. So have a look on the blog to see what is being posted- I think it is time well spent to hop to the site more frequently to see what has been posted.

Now if you read my blog for a while, you know that iam certainly NOT a big “3D item” maker. I simply have a very hard time finding inspiration and ideas. For me, making a different shaped card, is already making something out of the ordinary, lol. One and probably the biggest reason for me is that all my friends who live here are not interested in stamping or handmade gifts. Therefore everything I make, needs to be easy and light weight to mail. For my personal needs I can not alter, by example a candle which is going to be expensive on shipping costs and possibly damage the card I would add to my parcel. Anyhooo… long story short.. I just like cards the most because I find them most usable for me personally. I do understand that each and everyone has different interests and I think it is understandable that it makes sense to show how differently images can be used. However, my focus is and always will be the card making.
For the my February 3 D project I went with a “usable” post it cover. Easy to make, cute at the same time and a nice gift idea. Just measure your post it note pad, cut paper a little bigger, score 3x (for the fold on the spine usually 1/4 inch works always well) fold and decorate.Claudia_Rosa_Just a little note_1
And yes… Smile I was sneaky and took the colored image off the holder, after I took my photos and created a card with the image. Lets call that… a good way to show “how to use the same image in 2 different ways” "Smile
Love Claudia

This was realy interesting to read Claudia and get some insight how things sometimes work. You did a clever job there, still following your heart and altering the 3D project into a card front, hihihi!!!
You mention making cards because of the reasonable post rates but Claudia, they are overloaded with flowers, ribbons and other gorgeous details so they hardly fit in a normal envelope or am I wrong????? Are your cards 15x15 cm???
Have a lovely weekend, Irene
