Outside the Box

One of the fun posts we get to do with the CardMaker Blog Team is to find a past project from the magazine and be inspired by it to create something new.  Today on the CardMaker Blog it's my turn and I hope you'll check it out.

We all have designers we admire, and at the top of my list is Debbie Olson.  She is an amazing colourist and I love her eye for just the right elements in design.  I remember when I went to CHA a couple of years ago and went to introduce myself to her, she looked up and said "hey, I know you!".  And she was as delightful as could be.  Talk about a little smile for my heart!  So, I've pulled out a Debbie design from a book we were published in together - Coloring Techniques for Card Making.  Here's just a wee sneak peek of what I did....go check out the CardMaker Blog for more...
