June Guest Designer: Laura Norris

Hi everyone,  Laura here!

Today I am honored to be the guest designer here on The Heart Desires blog.  I was thrilled when Toni asked me if I was interested!  Heck Yea!!

In keeping with the Nautical theme they are featuring this month, I am highlighting some of the great 6 X 6 paper pads they carry in the store.

My card uses the Sail Away paper pad.  These papers are amazing!! You get 64 sheets in a pack, half of them double sided! The designs range from anchors, boats, seashells and sunglasses, to lighthouses, rope and starfish! Just perfect for any type of nautical themed card you would want to make.

I used a sheet of the anchor paper as my background and added a focal point by diecutting a stitched tag with Avery Elle's Circle Tag.  Then I stamped the Lawn Fawn sail boat in Memento Nautical Blue ink, and colored the sails with my Copics.  A navy twine bow finishes it off.  I think I'll give this one to my husband!

I'll be back again later this month for another guest spot here at The Heart Desires, and a HUGE thank you to the awesome DT  letting me have some fun with them too!
