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 Michelle Leone as she shares a transformation from a feminine card design to something perfect for the upcoming holidays:

“It’s time for another Papertrey Ink Transformation Tuesday! I’ve chosen a project from waaaay back (PTI Blog Hop – April 2012) to transform from a decidedly feminine card – full of pattern, texture and dimension into a Holiday 2018 creation that has many of the same elements (texture-like background, tag with ribbon/button, floral-like elements), but with more nature-inspired colors (gray/green/blue) and a little pop of Berry Sorbet.”


  • STAMPS: Penned Elegance: Christmas, Seasonal Borders: Winter
  • INK: Aqua Mist, Ocean Tides, Weathervane, Pinefeather, Spring Rain, Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy
  • PAPER: Berry Sorbet, Fresh Snow Linen, Wonderland Patterned Paper Collection
  • DIES: Tag Sale #12, Noted: Simply Stitched A2 Vertical, Penned Elegance: Christmas
  • OTHERS: Berry Sorbet 5/8″ grosgrain ribbon, white embroidery floss, misc. button, A Muse Diamond glitter, Sakura Quickie glue pen
