Go To Sketches Magazine

I found this sketch in my email last week from the very talented Go To Gal, Maren Benedict....no I don't know her personally I just happen to subscribe to her blog (Zany Not Crazy) and well you know how it goes.......when she updates I get an email!

Anyhoo, this is the sketch that I received in my inbox.

It's just one of over 60 sketches found in the new - must have Go To Sketches magazine by Paper Crafts.....whether you're a card maker or not this magazine is chocked full of inspiration to get those creative juices flowing!


And this is the little card I created using more Jillibean's Egg Drop Soup Paper Collection!
To make these little flowers all you have to do is follow the step by step instructions below.
Step 1: Punch a couple of different size circles out of pattern paper.  I used a 1 1/4 and 1 inch circle for the large flower and a 1 and 3/4 inch for the smaller one.

Step 2: Spritz circles with water and scrunch into a tiny ball and let dry completely....or if you're like me and don't like waiting you can use a heat gun to speed up the drying process.

Step 3: Once they're dry, carefully open them up and layer them together....decorate the centers with a brad or button and you're done!

Thanks for looking and happy hump day!
