Jot Issue 13

The latest issue of Jot Magazine has just hit the airwaves and as usual it's a beautifully curated collection of stunning projects.
I consider myself very lucky to be counted among the Jot Girls and so I have the opportunity to create directly for the magazine. For this issue I managed to contribute two separate projects - this first one was for the Numbers gallery. 


I started this card with a couple of things in mind; the first was all about letting the focus rest on the big bold numbers (that's pretty obvious right?!) but because this was actually for a boy-birthday I needed to try and resist the temptation to make it all pretty and layered and textured like I usually do.


So I stuck with a simple and clean design but still had fun with it by trying out a new technique for me which is that inlaid diecut thingy I've done there with the scripted 'congrats' die. It was a little fiddly, let's be honest! But I do like how it turned out :-)


Next up was this set of three cards I did for the Mother's Day gallery. I felt like I could get a whole lot more girly and flowery with these and so I chose my Neat & Tangled Gardenia Blooms stamp and embossed it in white before using some Zig Clean Colour Real Brush pens to colour them in.


But this is really just the tip of the iceberg friends! There is soooo much inspiration packed into this issue that you are just going to LOVE it! You can download your FREE copy over on the Jot blog now!


Happy reading!

  1. Love that 21 card. With 3 little girls I have the kid birthday card under control, but really struggle to make things for grown ups.
