PTI 6 year Anniversary Project #1

Hello everyone! I have been pretty busy this week but I managed to create my first project for the PTI anniversary release. Last year I felt so behind and I really only participate in one contest. Hopefully I can stay ahead of the game this year. ;)

 I absolutely loooove Melissa's style, and I had pulled all of the supplies out to create a card inspired by her star jar card on the bottom left. However, the person I made this card for is turning 13 (my niece) and I ended up taking a much more clean-lined and graphic style of approach. So although my card probably looks light-years away from the inspiration card, I can promise that it started the spark in true crafter's fashion.

A big mix of PTI (oh but of course, haha), Technique Tuesday, Basic Grey, Studio Calico and American Crafts products. I am finding that the SC kits are helping me branch out of 'staying to one brand'. Don't get me wrong, PTI is still definitely my favorite stamping company, it's just nice to know that I am able to creatively mix and match more.

I can definitely see the influence that my Project Life album is having on my cardmaking style. I definitely like it! let's see where it takes me, shall we? ;)

Hoping that everyone is having a great time enjoying all of the anniversary festivities! There's a party goin' on ya'll!
