First off, I am sorry if this post seems dull, I am not doing well tonight. I was hoping to get more layouts done to share, but it didn't happen! I did get another layout done, and I think it rocks, but it will have to wait till next Monday!!
Here is the end of my magazine archiving! It only took about 8 hours, and I found lots of inspiration!! Of course I realized through all of this, I never received my September CK, so I have emailed them and am still awaiting a response-ugh!!
This is a technique challenge over at Southern Breezes, a blog associated with Scrapbook Cafe in NJ (where I won layout of the month). The challenge was to do some masking. All I could find was my KI Memories lace cardstock, then used my Glimmer Mist! I love how it turned out! Bonus is, I now have a ready to go glimmered piece of the lace cardstock! Tattered Angels has great customer service by the way! My bottle nozzle leaks really bad, and they are sending me a new bottle!
Here is the completed layout using the masking technique! In addtion to the masking, I also used Cosmo Cricket Hello Sunshine 8x8 paper, Jenni Bowlin Journal Square, a regular silk flower, a Bazzill flower, and Prima flowers, misc ribbon and brads, and the background is Bazzill Dotted Swiss cardstock!
Here is a card I made for my Dad's birthday! It is very simple, but manly-I hope! I used Bazzill cs, BG Granola, Studio G stamps, misc ribbon, and skittles. I pop-dotted the cut out circles for some dimension.
I recieved this RAK on Saturday, it is from an AMR member for our pay it forward RAK. When someone posts something to give, you pick one of their offers, then offer 2 of your own for someone else to pick from. I picked these Autumn Leaves 8x8 papers, and someone else picked my Prima flowers! It is pretty cool!
