You make me smile...

My friend Lana is the Featured Stamper over on Splitcoaststampers this week. She creates such wonderful things and has a style that is truly her own. I just had to case one of her beautiful creations.


Lana makes what we affectionately call "Lanacuts". She mixes patterns and colors using strips of paper, creating a base for her images that just leaves me shaking my head thinking "how does she know to put those colors/patterns together and make them look so good?".

I picked one of my favorite cards from her gallery and tried to do the same. Thank goodness October Afternoon papers all go together. LOL The image and sentiment are from All About You additions (Papertrey Ink).

You can find Lana's gallery on Splitcoast HERE. Check it out... it is a definite "smile maker"!

Oh HB, I think your card is better than mine! I love how this turned out! I think you should do "Lana Cuts" more often.
