Yeah, it's the weekend! And I'm soooo glad! It seems a little strange to not be posting for Stuck on U Sketches this Friday. We are now doing 2 week challenges. So I've had a little free time to scrap whatever I want. Last weekend I worked on some very simple pages for events of this past winter that are a little too personal to share .. but that I needed to do. Then this past Wednesday I worked on this layout above using my new Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook. Man, was it ever packed with goodies .. 20+ Prima flowers and the greatest collection of papers. I am not normally a kit club kind of gal. And truth be told, as a design team member for Generations Crafting, I seriously have access to all the supplies that I actually need and then some! But I'm a certified paper addict!
The background paper on this LO is just stunning! It is a Prima pre-stitched mulberry paper. It really needs very litte adornment. This is a pic of dggd Peyton. I cut a large burgundy circle using my Cricut George cartridge, then after distressing it, I made some faux stitches on it with a white fine-tip pen. From the striped paper, I cut a scallop edged border using my Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I used some taupe lace that I had on hand to decorate the top. After using my craft knife to cut and lift the hearts on the right side of the paper, I slipped my circle and border strip behind them. Then used a paper frame for my photo that came with the kit and tucked them in as well. Next, I added one large Prima bloom and a burgundy ribbon bow.
My title was done with Honey Thickers and the journaling was a Creative Memories vellum saying that I cut apart, inked and placed randomly. Lastly, I cut a few butterflies from my Indie Art cartridge, inked the edges and added rhinstones to their bodies. I made a few extra for other projects I plan to make using this kit.
Now, while I'm posting, I wanted to share that Stuck on U Sketches is having a design team call and we are taking applications now. We will announce the new design team members on Spetember 3rd. So if you are interested in taking part, hop on over there and link up your favorite personal layout.
Thanks for coming by and always leaving such sweet comments!
