Another great weekend has come and gone! I had a fantastic day of scrapbooking on Saturday with my friends Tracey and Kelly - good food, a whole 8' table all to myself, lots of fun with the girls - what more could I ask for? I managed to get a few layouts done and created a "journal album" with the very talented Thelma ( http://www.originalinspirations.blogspot.com/) Check out her blog - her work is amazing!
The first layout uses some old products and some very new products! The paper is from a Paper Pizzazz book that I have had for a long, long time, the brads and the owl sticker have been around forever as well. The journal circle card is brand new from BoBunny, part of their Timepiece collection, and the lattice "ribbon" is one of CTMH's new Kraft Colour Ready Borders. These are wonderful....take the ink nicely, come in a package of 50 and are peel & stick! The Maya Road chipboard swirl was misted with Tattered Leather Glimmermist. The other chipboard pieces are from American Crafts and Scenic Route. Rub-on phrase from Swatch Book Narratives. This photo is almost 30 years old....my brother will "kill" me when he finds out I've posted it! lol I still need to add the journalling.
The second layout I actually did a couple of weekends ago but just got around to photographing it. Very simple - the pattern on the paper was enough for me so I just matted the photos and glued them down. Then took a whole package of Phrase Cafe stickers and stuck them down almost exactly how they were in the package. The brackets are from Pink Paislee - Artisan Elements Borders - another cool product, they feel like foam and are already embossed. You can paint, ink, or mist them to match your layout. Letter stickers are from my stash, flower is from Sassafras.
Thanks for looking and I love reading all your wonderful comments. Thanks for all the encouragement and friendship!
