Cards On Parade

It's time once again to share a couple of cards that were in the August issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.

First up is my card title Dream, which uses three fun items - glitter, a border punch, and an acrylic butterfly. All layered together to make a wonderful card.

Next on tap is an adorable circle card. Simply cut a circle using a 5 inch circle cutter, layer on the bird sticker, then lastly add a couple of flowers. Easy.

What fun products have you had a chance to play with lately?

Layers of Paper

It's time once again to share a couple of items that were in the July issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.

Fist up is a wonderful card using one of my favorite items - transparencies! They are super versatile and can be layered on top of patterned paper to create a unique look.

Next up is a set of inchies. I simple cut thin strips of patterned paper and adhered then at an angle on a 1 inch piece of cardstock. Add in a bit of ink, twine, and some buttons and you're done.

Now that you've seen a couple of my recent projects, what have you created?

Family Fun

The entire family got together one day in May for a birthday celebration and one of the munchkins grabbed my iPod. Little did I know that it would keep them entertained for hours. Who would have thought that music trivia apps would be so entertaining? Even the two year olds were playing along. Of course, this provided the perfect opportunity for a picture. It’s not too often that everyone is sitting still and in the same spot.

This layout features LOTS of yummy embellishments from Basically Bare! The canvas heart was inked with Distress Inks and then the dots were made with Enamel Accents. The acrylic heart was completely covered with Stickles. And the little bird was made by pealing a layer off the corrugated chipboard and then adding Distress Ink. Lastly, the canvas flowers were added and colored using Distress Inks also.

Forever...With Love

Looking back over the last few items I've created, I've noticed a trend - incorporating black into the finished item. So of course, this card is no exception. I just love the contrast that black has to the pink used on this card! It gives the card that "pop" that it needs.

Better yet, this was a fairly quick card to create. I simply layered some Echo Park patterned paper, added a couple stickers, and then added the floral trim. For the last embellishments, I took a Basically Bare acrylic heart and lightly inked around the edges with StazOn and then layered a felt dress form on top. I chose to leave the dress form bare since the white was a nice contrast against the black.

Have a good day everyone!

School Memories

The first challenge of the month is up at Better Living Through Scrapbooking. Head on over, take a look, and create a layout to get entered for the monthly drawing.This challenge was all about school photos. Well, I didn't have have any of my photos from elementary school (they're all at my Mom's house.) However, I have plenty of pictures from my Senior year. Just looking at these pictures just reminds me of 1) how much hair I had back then, 2) how long it took to get that teased look, and 3) how much hairspray it took to make sure my hair wouldn’t fall. Big hair, those were the days. :)

Since this challenge has me thinking back to my high school days, I have to ask this - What is one of your fondest memories from your Senior year in high school?
