Scrapping Projects

Click the February Challenge tab above for our current challenge

Hi All! I hope you all were surrounded with loved ones on Valentine's Day, and that lots of smiles and hugs were shared.  There was lots of red being worn and most of the restaurants were booked (good for them bad for procrastinators), but some of us are easy to please.  I received flowers, ice cream, money and a card.  Who could ask for more. The rest of the day I spent preparing for a lazy night.

Today I was well rested and ready to get back on a couple of projects I had going.  I managed to get two page layouts completed and I am going to enter them in the following challenges:

The Crafting Cafe - Anything Goes
The Crafty Bloggers Network - Challenge #8 Anything Goes

Here are the layouts:

My first layout uses Websters paper and Bazzil card-stock. I added a few flowers and used my Marianne dies to cut out a few leaves.

I matted my photo on a piece of punched card-stock.  I also use some lace that I picked up at "Crafty Scrapper" my favorite crafting store.

The corners were adorned with peel and stick stencils that are just fabulous and lastly I added a bit of journaling and a charm to finish this page.

This layout was created by request.  I used plain card-stock and DP from one of my DCWV paper stacks to create this design.  After punching around the Silver card-stock I measured the center and cut Black card-stock to fit in the center.

Then I used Martha Stewart's circle cutter to cut a 5" circle in the black CS and positioned the photo behind the circle.  One piece of gray ribbon marked the area for my title and provided alignment of my title.  I used a mix of Prima and Recollections Flowers along with a Prima Pearl Flourish embellishment.  Since I didn't have any turquoise or teal pearls I used white ones and then colored them with my copic markers.

I added a few embellishments in the lower corners and then I framed this layout in a 3D Black frame (not shown) and packaged it for shipping.  I think my friend will like it when she gets it and I hope her son will as well.

The last thing I would like to share is the Valentine's Day card I created and sent to my bestest male friend (okay bestest is not a word, but I like it)..... Anyway he doesn't care for red that much so to be different I thought I would use a hot green...sounds strange, right?, well take look-see;

My friend didn't get it on Valentine's Day but he liked it anyway...in fact he said it was "hot to death" so that made me feel like I had did well.

The image is Kenny K and the paper is all CS. I used a Martha Stewart to punch the edges of the card base and the mat edge.

Lastly I added a little bling and a sentiment, and dropped it in the mail at my local post office.

This is it for tonight...I hope you enjoyed your visit and I truly do appreciate you stopping by and hope to see you again real soon.

There's still 12 days left to enter my challenge, and take a chance on winning a gift card to Oozak where you go for your copic and crafting needs.
