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:
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.
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;
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.
