Valentine Redesign....

Sigh.... My circular file overfloweth...

(Circular file - the kind and gentle name I have for the giant, black Hefty bag in my craft corner).

I posted my Valentine class yesterday, but I really did not like the Fluffles the Cat card. It was too busy and the layout made the image seem insignificant. But I have a ton of other things to do - so I just wanted to move on.

Sigh.... I just couldn't. Bugged me too much.

So today I worked on plan B ----------->









And plan C ---------------------->

What do you think? Better? Which design would you choose?

I'm leaning towards C, but B would be easier for beginners to make.

I find doing class samples challenging because I like to do a lot of small pieces, ink edges, layer, etc. All that is time consuming in a class. And since I precut all my supplies, to many small bits and pieces takes a lot of time to prep.

I always admire people who create those really striking, beautiful cards that are simple at the same time. I think that is challenging to do and really takes talent.

I decided to clean the craft corner today - hoping it will help get my creativity flowing.

OK, I love the one you posted yesterday, and I love both of the ones you posted today, but if I had to pick one, I would pick C, because it's simply fabulous! WOW!

I think I prefer Plan C, even though I'm not usually a fan of the tent cards. This one rocks! Too cute. Love all the colors you are using.

Looks like I am all alone, but I really like B better- and do think it might be better for a beginner class.

Hi Cathrine, I think both look fabulous but Plan C is very pretty with the circle shape and scallop!

CATHERINE said...

I vote Plan C - I love the striped DP at the bottom, and the layered circles. Nice work all around!

AnnMarie said...

Hiya Cathrine! I love 'c'! Great colors and such character! The circle is a nice touch! Hope you are doing well! : )

Lori said...

I like them both, but I'd go with C--don't think it's too hard for beginners and gives them a different idea that they can try later on.

Betsy said...

i like B, am i in the minority? don't get me wrong, both are lovely but that B one gets my vote (couldn't help but notice it would be easier to prep for a class too!) good luck!

Godchick said...

Stampin' Meg said...

Stunning! I love them both, but the scallops and circles are especially lovely. Though you're right about beginners and the rectangles look fresh. GREAT design. I love the black with that dp: soooooo lovely! :0) Mel
