Welcome to Transformation Tuesday!

We all have cards that don’t necessarily turn out the way we had envisioned or a project that we designed to be feminine that could be made masculine with a few tweaks. Some of you may remember the Recipe Remix Challenge from SAF 2013. It’s sort of like that (but with our own projects instead of customer submitted projects). The idea is to show a project transformed into something fresh and new.

Join Lizzie Jones as she transforms a card she made last fall into something with a more feminine twist.

“I really liked the original card when I designed it last November and I thought it would be a fun challenge for myself to create a feminine version using the same layout. A few flowers and a brighter color palette went a long way in making the original rustic design much softer and delicate.”


  • STAMPS: Warm Regards, Direct Messages, Background Basics: Super Gingham
  • INK: Spring Rain, Dark Indigo, Prairie Grass, Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate, Harvest Gold, Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet
  • CARDSTOCK: White, Bitty Big: Pale Peony Paper
  • OTHER: Direct Messages Banner Die, White Crochet Thread, Foam Tape, Sewing Machine, Blending Sponges

    I love the Transformation Tuesday challenge. It helps me to look at my cards in different ways. I don’t have to create a new design altogether, but instead change the colors or style. Thank you for the helpful tips and inspiration. Lizzie, I love your Dogwoods! 🙂
