We were each asked to do a 'makeover' project. I was excited because this was an idea my husband suggested to me a while ago but I just never got around to doing. Basically a before and after paperdoll makeover. What I mean by that, is I want to show you what my paperdolls looked like before discovering Peachy Keen Stamps and then what they look like now. Here is the before card:
I really loved this card when I made it 5 years ago and that is why I actually have a picture of it. I think she turned out pretty cute, but I always had the hardest time getting the eyes and mouth even. Plus it is a pretty simple card, nothing wrong with simple, I just like that I've learned to do more with my cards when I want to.
5 years later here is the 'makeover' card:
I hope you like it because I LOVE it!!! Isn't her sweet Peachy Keen Stamps face perfect?!!! This face comes from a set that I use a lot called Simple Sallies. I love Peachy Keen Stamps because I get perfect little faces for my projects!!!! In addition, when I discovered Peachy Keen Stamps I also discovered Emma and Nikki's blogs. Thanks to their inspiration over the past couple of years, I have started adding stitching and doodling to projects. It adds so much to a project. And about 10 months ago Emma at My Creative Time started making stamps!!! She has got an awesome variety of beautiful sentiment stamps that work perfectly for just about any occasion. The beautiful 'magical memories' sentiment is from her Fun in the Sun stamp set and the 'thank you' is from her Follow Your Dreams stamp set. I think they look just right on here. I can't wait to give this thank you card to my parents after our next trip to Disneyland. I know they are going to love it!
