Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

Card Patterns Sketch 160...and another class at EA?

Happy Easter to all of my blogging buddies!

I had a pretty quiet morning and found some time to work on some great cards.  For inspiration, I used the current Card Patterns sketch:)  While this sketch is AWESOME, I found it a bit of a challenge to transform it to a masculine card (which was my other goal today).  In preparation of hopefully teaching another class at Ever After Scrapbooks at the end of May/beginning of June, I wanted to concentrate on masculine cards so we could celebrate the men in our lives.

While I did make 4 cards, I'll give you a sneak peek, using the one I made based on the Card Patterns challenge this week.

Here is the challenge sketch:
And here is my masculine "take" on it:)

For this (and the others that I'll show you later) I used the Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections line.  What I really like about this line is that most of the papers can be used for either feminine OR masculine cards.  I also love the neutral tones that give you the opportunity to add any splash of color you want.

I've had fun playing along with the Card Patterns blog this week and am really happy with my project:)
