Getting stylish with Carole..

I have also heard the phrase 'working in Jansonesque' style... and this is one phrase I often use!
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, as I'm posting this on Christmas Eve.. mainly because I'd forget if I didn't!!

The blog I would like to point you in the direction of this evening belongs to the fantabulous scrapbooker Carole Janson. Carole's work is absolutely fantastic and to say I love it is a very big understatement! I personally had never seen work like it before. I admit I don't do alot of scrapbooking, but the techniques that Carole uses can be adapted to cardmaking - in fact, looking through her blog you may even find the odd card dotted around..

Here are a few of her beautiful layouts


Browsing through Carole's blog, you will also find altered items that have been prettied up!


I don't really know where to start telling you why I love this project - so just observe and love!

Here's the close up. I just absolutely love the way Carole layers up the flowers and 3D elements in her designs.

I'm a big fan of Carole's work and was lucky enough to meet her a few years back at a craft show out in Perth Australia. Love the projects you have chosen to showcase here.
