Wooohooo! Sweetpea is 1 year!!!
Hello everyone and thank you for joining us in our big celebration. Sweetpea stamps is celebrating 1 year and we have all sorts of festivities planned. Today is a customer bloghop and you should be arriving from Jennifer's blog. If you haven't and want to join the fun from the beginning, start at the sweetpea blog.
I'm so happy to have been on board as a design team member from the start. I remember how it was before Lynette found ching-chou kuik's wonderful world of seafairies and how the blogs exploaded with these images a while after they were released. Thank you for picking me last summer Lynette. It was my first blog DT assignment and I'm very proud to design for you.
To honour the anniversary, sweetpea has released a new special edition stamp called New Year celebration. It will be on sale through saturday 24:th together with some sentiments to match. Here's what I made with the image:
It's a step card which I kind of improvised. I took a sheet of about 30x15cm and folded it in half (the same size I use for standard square cards) Then I measured a bit in from all edges, 3,5cm from the long edge and 2 from the short (front) and 5,5 from the other end (which is the back). Draw a rectangle where you made the measurements. Cut along the long edge where you've made the lines. ONLY along those two lines, don't cut along the short ones. Then you use a bonefolder on the middlepanel to make mountain and valleyfolds to match your needs. I used 2cm (where the sentiment is) then 2cm, 3,5 (where the image is attached) 4,5 and the last one 7cm (the last panel with the birds on it) Hope that makes sense, if not let me know and I'll try to explain with more pics.
