Sea Lions Live Layout

Layout Challenge: #79 of 210.

A Bunch of Cards

My mojo was working for me tonight!  Unfortunately there was no natural light when I took the pictures but you get the idea.

IMG_1710Products used: K&Company chipboard, CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, CTMH organdy ribbon, K&Company pearls.  I added details to the flower with markers and ink.  (challenge=sketch)

IMG_1708Products used: CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, CTMH Chocolate grosgrain ribbon, Cricut Accent Essentials, and button (unknown).  I added details on the flower with a marker and I used a piercing tool to add details around the scallop border. (challenge=paper piercing)

IMG_1707Products used: CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, CTMH White Daisy Just Blooms, Making Memories Chocolate paint.  I used the paint as the centers of the flowers – a great technique! (challenge=paint)

IMG_1709Products used: CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, clip and hemp (unknown).  I poked a hole through the flower to attach the clip to it with the hemp. (challenge=binding)

IMG_1711Products used: CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, CTMH White Daisy Just Blooms, DCWV vellum quote, CTMH Chocolate grosgrain ribbon, K&Company pearls. (challenge=quote)

IMG_1714Products used: DCWV textured cardstock and pattern paper, Stampin’ Up black grosgrain ribbon, CTMH Sparkles and Cranberry cardstock, button and flowers unknown. (challenge=red/black/white)

IMG_1715Products used: CTMH Boom-Di-Ada Creative Basics papers, flowers from CTMH Heart of Winter Project Pack, CTMH Hollyhock ricrac, acrylic frame by Fancy Pants, CTMH Say It In Style stamp set, and Hampton Art glitter glue.  The acrylic frame is actually two pieces.  I used the glitter glue to stick them together and then I attached it to my project with Liquid Glass.  Glitter glue was also used for the center of the flowers. (challenge=clear window)

These projects were all done for challenges at 365 Cards.

A Pirates Life…

I just love this picture of my nephew saying “Arrrgg!”  All embellishments were obtained through a swap.  Papers by CTMH.

Creative Titles

A great way to add creativity to your layout is by mixing and matching elements within your title as you can see on my layout below.  “The” = alphabet buttons, “Thrill” = sizzlits alphabet diecuts, “of the” = stamping, “HUNT” = stencils.  For the letters of the word “hunt” I used a package of stencils by tracing them onto my patterned paper, cut out, matted on cardstock, and embellished.  Paper is by DCWV.  Machine stitching adds great detail to the layout.

See?

I had fun with ribbon on this layout, using it to make an arrow and for a border of ribbon and brads.  The arrow and the circle draw the focus to the reflection in the photos that you may not otherwise notice.
