Forever Young Birthday Card

I made the following card for a dear soror friend of mine. Three guesses which sorority! Had a few issues with the glue towards the end, but all in all I'm fairly pleased with the result. I really do need to cut down my cardmaking time though. I think this one took me four hours!!! One of my goals is to really finetune my design process. Ooops....oh yeah...first I have to HAVE a design process. Okay, so THAT'S my goal! Thanks for looking.

More of My Favorite Layouts

Thanks for looking!

Some of My Favorite Layouts

So...still too new to blogging to know what the protocol for posts is...can I do more than one post in a day? Technically though, since it's past midnight...I guess I can post away. Since I'm in the process of building this new blog and moving things from my other page, I just thought I'd share a small collection of some of my favorite layouts that were posted on my old page. I believe that all of the layouts below are based on sketches by Cathy Zielske, one of my favorite teachers and designers.

Pages From My Sorority Scrapbook

I am on the scrapbook committee for my chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. My job this year was to design all of the section title pages. I had approximately a month to get all of the pages done and these are a few of the layouts that resulted.
