The Cure…

A little fun with my January Cocoa Daisy kit and a photo from my trip to South Beach last October.  I love living in Colorado, but there are some days I really  miss being near the ocean, there’s nothing quite like the soothing rhythm of the waves rolling in and out.

Welcome Grady…

In early December, I welcomed nephew number 6 to the world.  A new baby in the family is a wonderful Christmas gift.

Here’s a quick layout celebrating the special day,  I’ve been inspired by all the enlarged banners floating on scrapbook pages around the web and decided to give it a shot myself.

It’s in the cards

This month at Tattered Angels, we’re all crafting up some cards with a little help from our friends at Epiphany Crafts. My first card was inspired by a new book I picked up recently –Collage Couture by Julie Nutting. Such a fun book with great tips for illustrations and collage work.  I clearly need more practice- I cut my girly out of dictionary paper and misted her with Tattered Rose Glimmer Mist, her top is a scrap with some Mermaid Glam and her skirt is made from hearts punched using the Epiphany Button Studio Heart Tool.  For the background I used a Glimmer Screen from the Fancifuls set and Patina Glimmer Mist on top of some Bo Bunny paper.  A few butterflies coated in Big Apple Glimmer Glam to cover up a stamping boo-boo and this card is ready to roll.

Up next, a card with flowers using one of my favorite things to mist – Athletic Tape.  I discovered this one by accident and just love how the color saturates the tape without it losing it’s stickiness.  I sprayed strips of tape with Patina, Turquoise Blue and Dragonfly Glimmer Mists and then accordion folded them into flowers. The tag was left over from last month’s Birthday Girl layout.  For the background I used the plastic grid from a latch hook rug kit as a stencil.

Have you noticed all the projects with pinwheels popping up around the web,  it’s no wonder, they are a great icon of the carefree days of summer.  I couldn’t resist making a card with them.  For the background I was inspired by a piece of paper from Sassafrass’s Sunshine Broadcast collection – since I couldn’t really cut the paper to scale and maintain the look, I created a similar look with glimmer glam, mists and a little distress ink.  Remember that Glimmer Glam works as a resist when you mist on top of it.

 

Until next time…

The Big Book

landed on my doorstep – no not the yellow pages thank goodness — this Big Book


It seems so long ago I sent my pages off to the folks at F&W and this was the first time anything got picked up so it was very exciting, then life got in the way and I kind of forgot about it until the box showed up.  So pleased to be among so many, many fabulous other pages and designers. If you’re looking for a little boost or inspiration it’s in here, every page has two or three awesome layouts.

On page 91 you’ll find this

on page 162 you’ll see this

and finally this beauty appears on page 211

Oh how I love buttercream…

but sadly with the adaption to the the clean eating lifestyle I can’t really eat it any more.  So what’s a girl to do- scrap with it of course.  I was organizing my photos and layouts and realized that I had used Bazzill’s Buttercream yellow for a base on several layouts –

 

hmm seeing them side by side makes me think this is not buttercream – oh well close enough.

{Insert Something Witty Here}

Sorry kids, a cold has taken over my brain and can’t seem to formulate anything to write in this post, but I do have a quick layout to share.

Thanks to Ronda who let me come play and watch as she works her way through great projects for her upcoming book,  I actually scrapped some photos I printed out oh a month or so ago.  I think one of my favorite things about scrapbooking is pulling out summer photos on a cold and wintery day and reminding ourselves the sun will shine again…someday.

Since a layout doesn’t seem to be complete these days without a little shimmer and glimmer, I decided to paint the Studio Calico tree paper with some Sugar Cane glimmer glaze and added some highlights and splotches with  Espresso Bean and Tutu Pink Glimmer Glam.

Hope your week is fabulous!

What’s New?

how about a layout…

I really thought I’d  moved on from my need to have every tool known to man…this came along, I resisted for a bit and then after playing with it at Archiver’s I had to have it, meet

my new tool obsession…

Now I can make my own prima like flowers like the one in the layout

For this one I punched some basic cream cardstock, misted with banana chalkboard mist and then painted the highlights with yellow daisy glimmer mist.  So fun.  I’ve made several of these with the scraps lying around on my desk.

So what’s new with you?
