Transformation Tuesday with Melissa Bickford

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 Melissa Bickford today as she revisits using colorful cardstock strips.

“I’m a big fan of simple layouts that feature a lot of color and a crisp white card base. I love creating strips of colorful card-stock and stamping them with sweet images or sentiments, like in my original design. For my transformation, I simply switched up the sentiments with a variety of images perfect for the upcoming season that we are all longing for … SPRING! ”
