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 Dawn McVey today as she transforms a card with a fall color scheme to something more suited for the holiday season.

“The card I decided to transform is one that I really love, but it leans a bit fall-ish, thanks to the color scheme.  So I decided to swap out the colors and florals, as well as the sentiment, to transform it into a Christmas card, and I’m really pleased with the results.  Transforming your own favorite cards, is a great way to get some fresh, new cards made for each new season, without having to reinvent the wheel each time!”
