once upon a time...

"there was a girl named lisa,
and she had a blog...
and i liked to go to that blog because she was my friend,
and i liked to see her post stuff...
and then came february & that was the end".



so said kerry lynn. (and probably you, too)


that will change soon... i promise ;)

i get a lot of e-mails asking about my blog design & if i did it myself...i did :) with the little html & digital design knowledge that i have. it's not hard once you get the hang of it. i have photoshop & all those fancy editing programs on my iMac, but honestly, i don't even know how to use them.

in my next post have some stuff i wanted to share about blog design how-to's & links that will help you. so if you have any specific questions pertaining to my blog or projects or anything, please post in the comments section. that way it will be easy for me to keep track of. e-mail gets overwhelming for me sometimes & i think (so i've been told) that some of them don't even come through.

in the mean time, i want to share my latest projects with kenner road's latest kits: "the collector" and "lovely vintage" add-on kit:


my hope:
how did i get that yellow border around the edge of my layout, you ask?
i punched around the edge using a fiskars vine border punch and then crocheted a very crooked scallop border.

mehndi:

i made this layout for my lovely friend ratna who lives in singapore.
she does these amazing henna designs & i knew that i wanted to scrap these photos as soon as i saw them.
i left a blank, lined spot for her to journal if she wanted to.

lovely:
just a little prety i made for franki's room...made on a vintage book cover

and a party hat, just for fun


and just to tease you a little, here is a sneak peek of kenner road's april kit:

i'm playing with it tonight & i can't wait for you to see the yumminess that kerry has come up with for this kit!
there is some exclusive _________ that she had made for it,
oh & then there's that gorgeous __________ and beautiful _________!
and don't forget that vintage _______.


oh, i'm so evil, you'll just have to tune in & wait until reveal night ;)

Lisa...beautiful projects! Love, love, love! I have a question...how do you get the rounded corners on your pictures that you post? That's such a cool look. Also...did you ever get my address info from the last RAK post? I don't know if it went thru or not. Thanks :-)

Hi Lisa!
WOW those pages are STUNNING! So pretty.
I have emailed you a few times to check up on that SIStv secret swap from last year where you were the person allocated to send something to me. Anyway, I just wanted to find out how you were going with this as I still haven't received anything. If it isn't possible to post something to me, I am cool with a voucher to an online store or something too - whatever is easiest for you.
I hope everything is OK! So glad to see you are making stuff.
Cheers,
Lee L.
