I know it can be daunting at times when making your own cards, but I want to share a couple of tips with you.
Tip #1 - If you wanting to use lots of colourful embellishments, such as the sticker book from the Project life kit, I like to use a white cardstock, because the white softens the brightness and adds a real freshness to the page.
Tip #2 - If you think your cards are going to look busy, dont be afraid to leave lots of white space and add a little paint splatters to keep it all flowing.
Tip #3 - When deciding to make your own cards, just use a handful of embellishments and mediums that you want to use and leave it at that. This allows for your page to flow because you will be using the same embellishments and don't be afraid to just pop this and that on and layer up. That is the fun part. Think of each card as a mini layout.
I also just want to share 2 little tags that I made using the May kit as well. There to cute to not share with you :)
