I have done some pages lately but haven’t had a chance to take any pictures so here’s another layout from last year:
Products used: DCWV paper, CTMH flowers, Tattered Angels glitter mist, CTMH Giggle alphabet stamps, Darice rhinestone stickers, and CTMH Cherish book.
The girls had a blast at this fun contraption within the park at Sea World in California. They just bounced back and forth! The flowers were white and I sprayed them with pink glitter mist to add color and sparkle.
ScrapSketch is back up and running! I am so excited! These are the first 2 sketches for January and my layouts:
2010 Layout Challenge: #14 of 210
Products used: DCWV Luxury Stack, Disney Jolee’s boutique by EK Success, Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge, Sandylion vellum Disney stickers, Kaisercraft Pearl Strips (pink), and unknown 3D butterflies/flowers and organdy ribbon.
I am very pleased with this layout. I used the Diecuts with a View paper from a stack that I bought online and I didn’t like it as well when I got it so it became buried in my stash. It was the perfect colors for these layouts and I don’t think I noticed before that it had a sheen shine that is very pretty. The pearls I used come in strips and I used them to create my own flourishes and used the remaining pearls as centers for the flowers. I’ll have a layout tomorrow using ScrapSketch #3.
2010 Layout Challenge: #15 of 210
Products used: KI Memories paper, CTMH Sparkles, CTMH Life’s Creations stamp set, CTMH Noteworthy stamp set, and unknown flower.
I based this card on the sketch from the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #96. I’m not sure I like it but it’s different.
Products used: KI Memories paper, The Paper Loft paper, stamped image from a friend, Cotton Candy Stickles by Ranger, Darice rhinestones, and CTMH inks, markers, and blending pen.
Glitter and bling are among my favorite things! Well, among them and high on the list – really how do I pick just two!! I have seen many cards done where the papers are all matted but this is the first time I have done it and I have to say I like mine just as much as I like everyone else’s! I think I will be doing more of this. I’m not too worried about running out of paper. ;-) As I was making this I started wondering – does coloring get hard as you get older?? I don’t have many stamps to color in but I really like the look of them. Apparantly, I don’t know how to color! I guess that’s something for me to work on this year. I just never thought of it as a hard thing to do and now I’m starting to think that it is. I just love this fairy that was sent to me. I might have to start buying more stamps to color because I don’t have any detailed ones. I tend to stick to the simple stamps or two-step stamping because it’s faster. It is faster but I really am liking the colored look. This could be a good idea for my Christmas money. Well, enough rambling. It’s taken me long enough to make this card without prolonging it any further. I hope you enjoy it! Oh – just one more thing – the stamped image was sent to me and I wanted it cut smaller but I could not get it cut straight for anything – therefore I distressed the edges! It’s a great technique to fool the eye!
