Live the Life You’ve Imagined!

Hello everyone,

Since I did the big move to Southbrook I restarted some workshops and quickly found that a scrapbook workshop is the popular choice here in this quaint little town. I haven’t shared any of these projects on my blog and thought I should start. This particular page I am sharing today was this weeks workshop.

Live the Life You've Imagined

I used quite a few stamp sets, six in fact. It is one of the reasons I love Stampin’ Up! The stamp sets coordinate well with each other. Another item I love about Stampin’ Up!, and it is totally free, is the brown packing paper in the Big Brown Box that is filled with your goodies. I use it on my projects as a DSP (designer series paper). You can tear it, scrunch it, stamp on it, spritz ink on it, anything you can think of really. It’s a great neutral ‘filler’ for your layout. It especially looks good on boy themed layouts. Can you tell I love it?!

I sprinkled Whisper White ink in one of my Stampin’ Spritzer bottles over the layout and added a few Candy Dots for a pop of colour. I also outlined some pieces including the DSP with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker. I use this technique to make that particular element stand out, but it’s not too much that it takes away from the photo. I used Dimensionals to lift the photo off the page and slide my three tags beneath it. I will use the white for journalling and the other two will be fillers or you can put some smaller photos on them.

It’s a great simple layout anyone can do and the ladies attending loved the workshop. It  also gave me a good excuse to crack open the NEW KRAFT CARDSTOCK!! This stuff is awesome. It is heavier than our regular CS and this is a more natural Kraft colouring. Be sure to check that stuff out, plus any of the other gorgeous products I used.

Thanks for dropping by,

Hello Sweet Friend!

Hello everyone,

I have just recently had some time to sit down and make cards that are my very own creation. I love it when I have enough artistic inspiration to come up with something of my own. It has been a very dry spell on the card making front so far this year and this was a very welcome change. I have created other cards but they were CASE’s of other people’s beautiful work and I will put them up here on my blog in due course to share with you all.

I am so in love with the Fine Feathers stamp set and have been itching to create something “good” with it. I stress the word good because I have struggled with this set since I bought it. I have made a couple of cards with the set, but they will never see the light of day on my blog! LOL. Even though this set is not  predominate on this card it is one of the main elements.
