New Blog Design, Re-Design of Circle Card, Plus Free Card Give Away

I am so excited to share my new blog look with you! I absolutely love it!! The new look was created by the talented creative Lesley Croghan who recently launched a new business called Banners by Lesley, where she is selling pre-made blog banners using all Stampin' Up products!!!

In addition to the pre-made blog banners, she also offers custom blog banner with matching shop button, which is what I decided to go with. I must say she nailed it with the colors and graphics of what I was looking for and her response time is outstanding.

If you have been wanting to update your blog, you can click here to go directly to her site and check it out.

Now moving on to the re-design, I kept looking at one of my previous cards and decided to re-vamp it a little and to show you how you can take the same card and or layout and make some slight changes and convert it to another look.

To see the orginal card, you can click here

Let's see, what did I change (might be obvious, but I'll go over it). First, I changed how you opened the card, before you opened right to left, now you open it bottom to top with the straight edge on top versus on the left hand side.

Second, I added a sentiment, I felt it needed a purpose and the saying "Hello" is perfect for any day occassion and so pleased that this set came with it. Than I decided to sponge the circle using Chocolate Chip ink. Wow!! this made a difference, don't you think??

Last but not least, I changed the flower and leaves to be more on the right side of the focal point versus in the middle. Now there you go......slight changes, but it can make a difference on the look of the card.

Hope you enjoyed the redesign of the card and my new updated Blog.
