Transformation Tuesday With Laurie Schmidlin

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. The idea is to show a project transformed into something fresh and new.

Join Laurie Schmidlin as she revisits a framed card design using Love in Bloom.

“After creating the Congratulations card for the December release, I knew there were a few things that I should have changed.  I wanted to have a softer background as well as a smaller card base, which are the things that I did on today’s cards.  I feel that both of these changes really allow the heart image to stand out more and not get so lost in the card.”

    Sometimes when I see “redos” on blogs, I like the original better….but your new cards are so amazing! They are just beautiful! I agree with all your points….not that the first card wasn’t nice–it was. But you improved it so much. I wish I had the ability to look at a card and see ways to improve it as you do. Thanks for the inspiration!
