TSG - Wednesday Trends

Today is an even more exciting day for me. I selected the Wednesday Trends for There She Goes. Now trends are not usually ones' original ideas, what I selected is no exception. I want to give credit where credit is due. I received a book called Magic by Jeanette Lynton (owner of Close to My Heart). It is a book with sketches and tips for scrapbooks. One idea caught my eye - and I would like to share it with you.

I love this project and it came out so wonderfully. I also want to give thanks to Holly, Sr. Trendsetter for letting me sit at her dining room table and be neurotic and ask every couple of seconds, "Does this look good? What do you think? Isn't this fabulous?" I appreciate her input and just being by my side while I took this on for the first time. Also, a thanks to her sons, Noah and Levi for taking the direction photos.

The Revolving Door Technique

Let's begin:

Supplies needed: heavy cardstock; DP, TSG stamps, ruler, pencil, and a single brad.

Please click on the images to make them larger for directions.

Step 7: Stamp your images on your cut wedges (be sure to watch your orientation). I used the final circle to place my wedges down.

Step 8: Place your revolving door on top of your stamped circle. Pierce a small hole and place our brad through the hole. Now it will rotate with ease.

Step 9: Place your revolving door circle on top of your card, decorate with bling, and enjoy!!

Please don't let the directions intimidate you ... this was one of the easiest projects I have done. It just takes time to make the circle template just right and cut the bow ties. Trust me, it is so worth it in the end. I just love this card. I hope you do to.

For my project I used the wonderful My Little Friend. I hadn't inked up this set yet, but I just love it for this project.

I hope you give this technique a try. I think it's just fun and fabulous!!

This is such a cool idea! I love seeing cards that allow someone to really interact with them, it's fun for kids and adults alike :) Nice to see a fellow Colorado gal's creativity! I'm in Highlands Ranch.
