I’m feeling fancy again this week, having Lori Craig join us as this weeks Fabulous Friend!!! Lori is a dear, and I love spending every minute I can with her. Some people just make you smile, ykwim?
While I am DYING to show off Lori’s amazing project, first, let’s get nosy!
What is your signature move? Is there one style or technique that seems to adorn your every creation?
Couple of things that seem to work their way into many of my projects. First, I love twine, and I use it a LOT. I think it keeps things from looking too fussy and formal, and I like that relaxed look. I have several different colors that I use. Frequently, I’ll wrap a card (or in this case a box) with a little bow, or I’ll use it to knot a button in place or hang a tag. The way I use the twine most often is with a small stack of big white paper flowers and a button.
My second signature move would be coloring. I color almost everything, which makes creating with MFT line art much fun.
What’s your favorite MFT set and why?
Favorite? For sure, I love the Pure Innocence girls. I think Best Medicine is probably my favorite of that collection. I love her uniform and the sentiment, ‘Friendship is the best medicine’. It rings so true. Friendship can cure many so many of our blue thoughts.
I also love the Jolinne – Sweet Spring set. It reminds me of my oldest daughter who would rather be dancing than anything else in the world.
What do you hoard?
I’d like to think that I’m better about hoarding now than I used to be. I’ve come to realize after card making for so many years that ‘in’ styles and accessories, come and go. If I don’t use it when I find it and buy it, I never will. That said, I’m still pretty stingy with all of those beautiful, fancy paper-crafty flowers.
Now, make sure you’ve got some tissue handy and nothing in your mouth that might cause you to choke when you gasp at the beauty of this…
Cool Copic effect on his Dino skin, huh? LOVE it!!! Please make sure you stop by Lori’s BLOG and leave her some love for this amazing project she shared with all of us!
