Aren't these cards just beautiful? I'm going to play with this kit tomorrow and see what else I can come up with. One of the nice features of the kit is that the papers are not pre-cut so if you wanted to use them for a layout instead of cards, you can!
Have a great day!
Thanks for peeking- have to get ready for my workshop now!!
Have a great night- thanks for peeking!
Thanks everyone for peeking! Have a great day!
I was able to fit an extra 6 pictures onto the layout!
This is also going to be a workshop not only using the Flip-Flaps but also using a 9X9 page protector!
A funny story for everyone- yesterday I tool the kids over to see the lighthouse near us by Robert Moses Beach. After we walked the path to the lighthouse, we had some snacks and then decided to walk back. We wanted to walk along the beach so we set out splashing in the waves and enjoying geting our feet (and other parts) wet. However, as we were walking along, my older son David said to me, "Mom, that man has no clothes on!" I think to myself, that's crazy, he must have a thong or speedo or something. Well- he didn't! That's right, he was naked- along with all the other beachgoers at the beach! Apparently, we stumbled onto the nude beach! I had no idea there was even a nude beach anywhere near us! Needless to say, there were many snickers, giggles and tons of questions. All in all, my kids handled the situation well and we just tried to continue enjoying the beautiful day! We had lots to tell Daddy when we got home! LOL!
I hope everyone has a great night- Thanks so much for peeking!
I used two B&T papers and two pieces of cardstock to create the cards and then used the Daydream My Stickease to embellish. I will also stamp the sentiments and add a few brads and such!The "boy" cards-
I used two B&T papers and two pieces of cardstock to make the bases and then used Animal Cookies My Stickease to decorate. I still have to stamp the sentiments and add a few embellies to finish them.
More details about the workshop will be coming and if anyone would like the kit, please contact me-
Thanks for peeking!
It's hard to see but I used stickles on the flourishes and am still figuring out how to make the ribbon stand up- I may tie the two pieces together after I fill it with treats. I already know that for the next one I am going to make it with butterflies!
Another project I worked on today was a birthday card for my mother-in-law. The first time I tried it, I decided to use my brayer to add some color over the background (kind of like Michelle Zindorf does so beautifully). The only problem is I am not so good with the brayer. I embossed the flowers and vines before using the brayer. Here is the card-
My plan was to add a third blue flower and pop dot it and also to cover the center of the green flowers with buttons or brads.
Anyway- didn't love it (don't have to wonder why) so instead I made this card-
Same idea, I pop dotted the blue one, added sparkles and used my foam tool to add some slight blue color for the background.
Thanks so much for taking time to peek at my blog- have a wonderful night!
I also made a lid for it but it doesn't quite fit- LOL! I am going to have to play some more and really jazz these up!
Thanks for looking- enjoy the day!:)
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
Thanks for peeking:)
BTW- these pages were part of the 18 page workshop- I still need to embellish and journal them but I love the way they look with the colors in Emily's costume!
Iona- just shoot me a message or email with the Level One paper pack you would like and I'll get it right to you! Congrats!
3. Our construction has started!! Yippie- now we just have to pray the rain stops sometime soon!
4. Some of you may remember that I was training for my very first race- well it is this Sunday! It's a 5K (3.2 miles) and I'm really excited and nervous. Wish me luck!
5. Here is a sneak peek at July's Monthly Workshop- we will be doing 4 pages this month and using the masking technique as well as embossing. We will also do some coloring with my favorite Copic markers!
That's about all the news from here!! Hope everyone enjoys the last few days of school. Thanks for checking out my blog-
Finished Layout #1- I added some mattes and buttons. I also stamped and cut out some "beachy" embellishments-
Finished Layout #2- I added some buttone, one journaling box, a few mattes, some brads and a flower-Left side-
I am thinking of trying this workshop with another paper pack- any suggestions? I was thinking maybe Emporium or Bella.
Don't forget to vote for the paper pack you think I'm making Emily's dance recital layout with!!
Also- don't forget to pop over to Scrap and Share to vote for Denise's layout to win!
Have a great day-
Thanks for looking!
Close up of the right side-I used out new stamp set called Playdate for the three children and colored them in using my Copics (although I didn't really take time to shade and play with them!)
BTW- I don't like the way the cameras look on the layout so I won't put them in during the workshop!Close up of the left side-
Thanks so much for peeking!
