Style Swap: CAS vs Shabby Chic

LemonLush_CAS_032014

I love playing around with different cardmaking and scrapbooking styles—the ability to take similar products, or even products from the same collection, and create completely different looks is one of the things I love best about this craft of ours. So today, I thought I’d share a little Style Swap… with myself. I created two completely different looks using Studio Calico products…. namely from the Lemon Lush collection, with a little help from the Sugar Rush kit and my favorite Lawn Fawn dies!

While I’m drawn to Clean-and-Simple style cards, like the one I did above… I find it much easier to create Shabby Chic cards, like the one below. The only thing missing (in my mind) from the one below is a bit of doily between the vellum and the purple frame. I didn’t have one, but I would have used one if I’d had one on hand.

Does that happen to you? The style you love most isn’t necessarily the one you find easiest to create? I’d love to know your thoughts on this….
