Today I have another fun set of projects that were completed a while back for an event at Scrapbook News and Review Magazine featuring Donna Salazar/GCD paper.
First up, I have several cards and an ATC. For all of them, I did a lot of fussy cutting. I simply fell in love with all the butterflies and had to be sure I used each and every one of them.
Who says heritage layouts have to be dark and colorless? Sure, I've made several that were not eye-popping with color, but it's also fun to switch things up and add lots of color to a heritage page.
This first layout is my Mother and Great-Grandmother in 1961. I simply layered the patterned paper and cardstock, then fussy cut a few flowers.
Next up is a layout of my Great-Grandmother and my Uncle. For this page, I punched the edges of the patterned paper for a bit of texture. Then I added a bit of lace, a flower spray, and some corrugated hearts (which are from Basically Bare) that had been heat embossed to give them a worn, weathered look.
This last layout is my Grandmother and my Great-Grandmother. And again, lots of color. I simply layered lots of different sized strips of patterned paper, added a bit of ribbon trim, fussy cut some butterflies, then added a couple of flowers for contrast. The flowers were inked with Lindy's Stamp Gang Color Shots, and oh how I wish you could see the glimmer on them!
Thanks for stopping in today and visiting!
