Get ready to play Tic Tac Toe because this week’s board by Corinne Blake is one of my favorites with simple and fun choices!!!
I used all 9 elements on my card which made tic tac toe all 8 ways!!
It is so much fun and easy to create when you pick 3 in a row and play! Each week I gather the different elements from the board so they are in front of me. This week I started by grabbing my circle framelits and black cardstock then looked through my swatch books for DSP with black and/or stripes. (I found both!) The floral design from Whole Lot of Lovely certainly checked off the box for “vibrant”. Then I chose a color from the DSP to use for my “layer” and “ribbon”. I knew it would be easy to add a heat embossed thank you sentiment for a friend and by cutting it out with a circle die that checked off 5 elements…circle, black, thank you, friend, heat embossed. How easy is that?!!! Trust me, having the items in front of you will get those creative juices flowing…you will see things that go together. Just start creating! All I had left to do was a simple layout to put it all together. (*I keep sketches of simple layouts as well as cards I’ve made or received with layouts I like to use as inspiration for future designs. This layout is clean & simple and could easily be used with many different papers and take on a totally different look and feel. I know I will be using it again!) I hope you will give it a try and play along. For more inspiration click HERE to see what the other designers created this week. I would love for you to add your creation to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge.
