I hope you enjoyed your weekend. My weekend was bittersweet. The sweet part was that I was able to participate in a crop session at our local scrapbooking store. :) The bitter part is that our scrapbooking store is closing!! I am sooooo bummed about that. Joann's and Michaels, which I dearly love, don't carry the amount of paper selection that "my" store does. What am I to do now?!!!? How about one of you come open a scrapbooking store? :)
Anyhow, today I am sharing some projects that I did at the crop session. First, a Christmas card. The ornament was cut out using my Cameo. I inked the sentiment banner using Pastel Blue ink
(Supplies: Cameo, music sheet embossing folder- Tim Holtz, alphabet stamp- Hero Arts, ink- Pastel Blue & black, pearl- Doodle Bug, glitter glue- Martha Stewart)
Next, a 2 page layout. But before I go any further, I want to share my philosophy regarding scrapbooking. For me, it's about the pictures and the story behind them. Everything else, such as embellishments, is secondary. And I prefer a clean and simple style. However, I am trying other styles, but I don't always succeed. With that disclaimer, let's carry on. :)
I used the October sketch #42 from Sketch-N-Scrap. I will be adding the first page to their sketch contest. Here is their sketch.
Here is my interpretation:
The concept behind this page was to create a "timeline" of our event. However, I feel that my writing ruined it. Oh, well. Life goes on.
(Note: I wasn't happy with my writing, so I redid the time line) :)
Here are some detail pictures.
I think Sixto was the winner in the "Pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey" game. ;-)
(Supplies: pattern paper, Flower die-cuts- Big Shot, banner punch- Fiskars, twine- My Minds Eye, sequins, stickers- letters & flip-flops, radio & subtitle- Cameo, glitter glue- Martha Stewart)
College was stressful, but the friendships I made through that experience are priceless. And these are some of my valuable friends.
Thank you so, so, so much for giving me some of your time.
