June 2011 Trail Map

Sometimes I think that designing the composition of a card is the hardest part of card making.  You choose your images, and the reason for the card, the papers, and the colors, but then you have to decide how to make all the elements work together.  Maybe that is why I enjoy Regena's sketches so much.  She does a whole lot of the work for me before I even begin.

Join us this month on the Side Trail and enjoy the beautiful cards created by our super talented Artistic Guides using Regena's exclusive trail map for June.  This map is so versatile; you can use it for any occasion, and the variety everybody came up with is amazing!  During the next few days we will be showing you detailed instructions for several of the cards, starting tomorrow with our Map Master, Grandpa Ken.  If you try your hand using this month's map, please be sure to share with us! Email to:stampersquest@yahoo.com. Please include stamp credits and  make sure your file is no larger than 150kb.
