Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

So, I’m not “too” far behind with my Project 12 layouts (see the sidebar button for Project 12) having only March to go after this. What I have realized is that I need to take more pictures!

This layout was super fun to put together. I used all my fav products – BasicGrey, glitter and stamping. The BasicGrey paper is from the “Blush” collection, remember that one? An oldie but goodie with the great tones of red/pink, brown and turquoise. How yummy!

I used a new Sizzix die that I got on clearance at Michael’s for like $3.99 or something silly! Its’ the heart beauty in mint glitter. All of the heart stamps are from various Ippity sets, just so pretty! Gotta love that Becky Fleck sketch too.

I just loved these pics from DB’s trip back home last year. So peaceful and serene. The location is the coast of Maine in June. Nice weather and cool at night. He had a great time and these shots he took are great! I had to do some stamping in there using Ippity and Unity stamps. Needed some glitter and heat embossing too. 🙂

I have actually done a couple scrapbook pages lately! Unbelieveable I know, but hey, new years resolutions are a good thing sometimes. 🙂

Some of the pages I can’t share yet, but this one I can. It’s using some of the My Mind’s Eye stash that I have (as bad as my BasicGrey stash) and some of my Ippity stamps.

Supplies:
My Mind’s Eye patterned paper and sketch
Ippity and Unity rubber stamps

P K Glitz E P Max embossing powder and Ritzy Ditzy Glitz
Tsukineko and Ranger inks
Cosmo Cricket chipboard

I was lucky on 2 occasions recently – one was to go to Kentucky for a long weekend before all the leaves dropped and two, was able to work with the 3 Bugs Autumn line!

Kentucky was beautiful and a little cooler than I was expecting :). The colors of autumn really made up for it though. I just love the oranges, browns and yellows of the season. Not enough to move into a part of the country that has that though!

The Autumn line is really fun! It has all the great colors you expect for Fall plus patterns that match. I love that on many of the papers, the back is solid colored. Also, I like being able to distress it myself if I want. The addition of a cool grayish blue was a nice touch.

Yes, I admit it, I have an “IN” for feeling, seeing and using some of the new product coming at CHA. You can actually visit the My Mind’s Eye site to see the upcoming CHA releases, so it’s not a total surprise. The fact that I got to USE it though, makes me feel special. 🙂 Thank you T.

Let’s see, I sprayed the snowflake background paper with a mixture of Dried Marigold/Blush Perfect Pearls/Water from a Mini Mister (see the recipe page for more) and layered a bunch of patterned paper! The title letters were cut from fun foam using a couple different Sizzix alphas, then covered with Glossy Accents and P K Glitz Crystal Glitter. Thanks for looking!

My Mind's Eye, Colorful Christmas

Besides BasicGrey, one of my favorite scrapbooking companies is My Mind’s Eye. Weathered looking paper, hip embellishments and terrific color combinations bring a whole new emphasis to a themed package. One of MME’s newest line called “Breaking Free”, has a bunch of mini collections all in-line with the main theme. The mini collection that I worked with this month at Cherry Blossom Studio was entitled Cowabunga “oh so very cool”. How fun is that?? Full of great orange and teal tones, this paper brings you right to the beach with the surf lapping at your toes! Grab your surfboard, we’re leaving!

ScrapFriends had a neat NSD crop with some fun challenges. I was able to participate in just one due to my crazy schedule lately, but I had as much fun as possible! It was worth it! Using Coredinations cardstock and stamps (Starving Artistamps & Stampin’ Up!) plus PK Glitz embossing powder and glitz, this recipe page came together perfectly for the challenge. No printed paper needed, all of it was stamped for the page!
