Simple Cards

Hey everyone, hope you are having a fantastic weekend!  I'm busy gathering supplies, doing laundry, and all the general getting ready stuff so I can leave to go to SPARK this next week.  I'm really looking forward to the fall weather in UT and getting to see the friends there that I don't see as often as I'd like to.  

I was thinking about what projects I've done recently that I haven't had time to share yet & I remembered these cards!

This first one I did after I worked on some layouts for Simple Scrapper so I had all sorts of scraps laying around. I kept it simple and graphic (they are easier to mail like that!!) by altering one of the Simple Scrapper September scrapbook sketches to be used on a card.

This next one I did after I finished doing some Imaginisce assignments with the new Bon Voyage line.  I used my Distrezz-It-All to do the distressing around the edge of the gray patterned paper.

I intertwined a sticker with a die-cut and popped it up with some of the colored foam adhesive.  I used the black since it was on navy cardstock, but it also comes in brown, red, and white.

Scrapbooking: a mushy love page

This week Imaginisce launches a new line: Bon Voyage! And even though it's travel themed, I used it for this mushy scrapbook layout...

I did some hand stitching around the heart, photo, and left edge of the layout.

Soak Up The Sun

Does anyone else change favorite colors like I do?  While green and turquoise will always hold a special place in my heart, yellow is now one of my faves!  (Previously I was on an orange kick!)  So of course I was pretty happy when I saw this new Fancy Pants "Beach Babe" line at Remember When.

Erin Bassett - Fancy Pants - 1977That's my mom & me!  :)  I love that pic!!  I distressed the edges of it with my Distrezz-It-All to make it a pit more older looking since it was freshly scanned & printed.

I ended up chopping up the papers and sewing them together.  Of course I sprayed them a bit with Strawberry Cheesecake Chalk Glimmer Mist (which is on sale for 50% off right now at 2P's!!!)

I also used the Epiphany round epoxy with the new vintage settings.  And of course a few i-rock studs!

After working on this layout I'm totally wanting to go back to Hawaii.  It's been too long since we've been there!

Erin Bassett - Zig - Quick Quotes - Reminisce - Island Escape

I was assigned this Reminisce line for one of my DT projects at Remember When and was happy to remember that I had these Quick Quotes Frosted Flourishes that I wanted to use on something sooner or later.  The flourishes are made out of a thin, frosted acrylic and have a couple of pieces of bling on them.  I knew I didn't want to leave them "as is" so I figured I'd doodle on them.  

I used my Zig Painty FX pen (1.5mm) pen on them...here's a short video of how I did it:



I needed to use the stickers for my assignment, so I decided I'd sew a border around each of them. I also used my Distrezz-It-All to distress the edges of each of the photos, and a healthy splattering of Glimmer Mist too.

For the flower, I took two of the large Prima paper flowers and painted them with various shades of pinks and orange Glimmer Mist...layered them & put a sticker in the center...and then sewed them together.

Scrapbooking embarrassing moments

Remember When is having a "Everything Tim, but him" crop coming up & so the design team has been busy creating store samples with his newest products.  Here's one of the ones I made:

I searched through my pics trying to figure out what I was going to do & came across the photo of my girlfriends & me at Inspiration Unlimited's pj night...we made matching jammies...which was a cute idea....until we actually put them on & had to walk through the casino.  -Embarrassing!!!  I'm sure we wound up on some type of what-not-to-wear website.

Here's some close-ups of the page...

I created the flower by gluing the light bulb to a circle scrap of paper...then taking a sheet of glassine paper and stamping on it with Stazon ink & this number stamp...then I crinkled it all up & tore it into circles (which I ended up tearing in half)...I then rubbed distress ink over them and used a paper towel to remove the excess (the ink will only color the torn or wrinkled areas).  I then just bunched up each "petal" and adhered it around the light bulb with my cordless hot glue gun.

I also glued the metal wings on so that they formed leaves for my flower....cute if I do say so myself.  ;)

Some other design note...I used my Cricut to cut out the brown background shape, my Distrezz-It-All to rough up my photo, my i-rock to add that adorable metal heart in the title (that's heart is Imaginisce too!), and of course my sewing machine for the stitches around the page.
