Grid Card - Inspired by Mel!


I was totally inspired by how wisely Mel is using her Scor Pal. I don't have a Scor Pal so I thought I would do some extra work (as always) and make a grid. I cut up thin strips of my all time favourite pink card stock. Applied lilac glitter on both the sides to hide any irregularities. :-p

The entire time that I spend away from blogging, I was cutting these strips up. And yeah I was also blog hopping. Found some great blogs.


I have drawn this cutie image LOL. I needed something, I didn't want to add a flower. So I thought of doodling something up, end result was this image.

The reason I always distress my card edges or layer edges is to hide any irregularities. I will be getting a paper trimmer or some excellent ruler to get straight lines. But for now I have to tamper the edges :o)

Okay! This is what I really wanted to show you. Take a closer look at the wire. It is twisted! I got so many for myself! I have been wanting to use it as fillers when I am decorating the lids of wedding boxes or gift boxes, but haven't really gotten a chance to do so.
I have got them in quite a few colours, I will be posting that pic later.

Wooooow. My jaw dropped at how perfectly you did the grid with the paper strips. I don't have a scorepal, but I have a paper trimmer. I use the groove in there to do all my scoring with a dead ball point pen. Can you even get a trimmer there?

I am amazed at all the things you do with your limited resources. Great job with the drawing, wire twisting and heart. Very nice!
