My Style

Hello everybody. I hope you are all well today. I can hardly believe it's Thursday again, almost the weekend and more importantly another new challenge at


We would like you to share a project showcasing your "style" be it Clean and Simple, Steampunk, Vintage, Fussy...whatever denotes YOUR style (and don't forget to let us know WHY).

I don't mind admitting I struggled to define my style. I tend to avoid bulky embellishments due to the postal charges these days, so that's "fussy" out. I'm not "C&S" because I LOVE patterned papers far too much to leave acres of white space, although the absence of embellies could make me lean a little that way. My images tend to be cute but I don't do the sweet, girly shabby chic thing either but I do like to use dies...Oh pants...I really don't know!! HELP!! 

I know...my style is just "me"!! Here's an example...


I thought it was about time I coloured a Barry image so matched him to some papers from a free paper pad. 
I stamped the sentiment on to a die cut tab. I pierced holes and used a letraset fineliner to created the illusion of stitching. Oh yes...that's definitely my style!!

I am taking Barry to play along here

Have a super duper day whatever you are up to and thanks for sharing a little bit of it with me!! xx

Very sweet and nice fresh colours Sarah.

Told hubby what you said and he thought we might give rice a try as well, the paddocks look about ready for it.

Let's just say your style is stylish! Another amazing make, Sarah. Great layout and I thought, "hey up, she's got the sewing machine out!" your 'stitching' looks so real. Amazing colouring too. Fan-dabby-dozy!! :) xx

Hi Sarah, I know what you mean, I don't think I could define my style either! Recently I have seen cards referred to as 'Clean and Layered', which I think may apply quite well. Anyway, your card is gorgeous, adorable image and pretty papers too.
