Gecko Galz Annual Blog Hop — 73 Comments

  1. Lots of creative ideas but I have to say that your side-stepper card is my favorite. Who wouldn’t love to display this card on their mantle?!?! Can you share the instructions on how to cut the cardstock for that card? Would love to make one of my own.

  2. Oh my…Lisette your samples are wonderful. What a variety of inspirations you have shared with us. Paper art is not confined to cards. Thank you for sharing this wonderful collage sheet. I can’t wait to print it out and create with the gorgeous designs!

  3. Dear Lisette, I hopped from “Anything but a card” to your blog and read about the blog hop. I ENJOY it! Thank you! Your creations are fabulous, love your matchboxes.
