Have a wonderful Day!
Just Magnolia: Sketch
Stamp Something: Vintage with flowers
Oh Alice: Twinkle, Twinkle(my flowers are sparkly)
Magnolia Down Under: Something Sweet(I think she is super sweet)
I used acetate for the front of my card and it's a little difficult to photograph, so I apologize for the poor photo. Anyway, I've used one of Lexi's new images called Splashin and you can get that here.
Sorry these pics are not that great...it was late when I took them, but I didn't want to wait as I would most likely forget(Friday is a busy day for me) and I def didn't want to do that. For me, scrapbooking is all about the pictures! I want to get as many in there as I can, with some embellies, but not an overwhelming amount. So I guess I am a CAS scrapbooker...what do ya know, that's how I make my cards too, lol! I also prefer two-page layouts. I take a lot of pics so it usually takes that much to get in all the photos I want. If I did one photo per page like some people I'd have hundreds of pages in my books! So, those are layouts I've come up with myself here and here are some examples of what I've done following sketches
This is a gate-fold card, my first, and I don't think it turned out too bad. I have stitched around the image and the DP and added some brads. All of the papers have been distressed and inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in vintage photo. I'm sure this could use some more embellies, but I was striking out with everything I tried, but that could just be because I was looking at the thing off and on all day, lol. I may have to revisit this one later. I had to think outside the box this week as I had earlier told you I ran out of Neenah paper. By Tuesday I figured I had to come up with something, so I printed this out on craft paper and gave it a go. I discovered you could do this st the copic creations blog and of course the DT make it look really easy, but for someone who's only been using copics for a few month I did find it a bit difficult.
Here's the inside. I know there's still a lot to be done, but it will wait till I find something to use it for. I can see really liking this type of card and I'll have to try another one soon! The bulk of this is made out of craft paper the one DF is some really old DCWV. the bubbles are a mixture of a white paint pen and stickles and I've even glossed up the water on the bottom below the tub.
Well, that about covers it. I'll be back real soon with anther SMC project.
I have a lot of pic's so I'll try to keep this short. This is the box closed...A view from the top and the side. I've made and octagon exploding box...in case this is looking a little weird to you.
Last but not least, here is a close-up of the adorable 'Miki with Love Blocks' from Sew Many Cards that I put on the inside. Well, I have to say that surprisingly this came out just as I had envisioned...better even! I actually did set aside all the colors I used for this, but forgot to photograph them....I will try to do it later.
I had originally thought this could be something I could give to my husband, but the more I got into it the more girly it became, lol! I like to give just because gifts so I think I will save it and give ti to a close girl friend of family member...my husband would not appreciate this at all! All the papers I used are from the BoBunny persuasion line. I hand made the flower on top...it's been sitting around for while. The sentiment on the tag is handwritten and the pink lace is from MME Laundry Line.
I think that about does it for all the info. Hope you've enjoyed my project! If I can get the time, I'll have a Maggie for you tomorrow and Friday it's time for another SMC challenge, so stay tuned! Have a great day!
