The winner of a $10 gift card to the Robin's Nest is.........
Thank you to everyone who participated in the blog hop!!
|A page using some of the Crate Paper Pretty Party line. LOVE it. So many pretty pastel colours and classic Crate patterns.|
The picture is from my formal "going away" party.
And you can see towards the top of the photo that I "framed" my title with gold striped washi tape. Currently obsessed with washi. Just ordered 5 more rolls. :)
And for the splatters I used watered down MS gold paint.
|I used my square punch to punch out the papers, photos, and doilies.|
Don't you just love the Pink Paislee Nantucket papers??
|I used raw chipboard letters so that they would be easy to glitter :)|
|To make the white ruffles behind the photo I used white crepe paper and my sewing machine. Actually very easy to do! I love the extra texture it gives.|
I LOVE these American Crafts silver thickers. So versatile!
The photo lifts up to reveal typewritten journaling.
I used Mr Huey's Pinstripe mist to make my splatters.
|Detail of the crepe ruffles and silver foil Thickers.|
|I loved this idea...because sometimes I just love a piece of pattern paper SO much but hesitate to use up a whole sheet as a background. What a waste that would be ;). So I did a sort of scraplift from Marcy's page and love the way it looks.|
|I am in love with the new badges I bought from this super cute Etsy shop. I totally recommend them!|
|I moved to Ontario 2 weeks ago, and my boyfriend was able to come with me for a few days to help me get settled in. So we took a field trip and visited a few special places around town, and Mt. Mckay Lookout was one of them!|
The little mason jar was cut out of one of the Dear Lizzy patterned papers, then I heat embossed it with clear powder in a scroll design.
I handcut the pink heart from pink felt, and added a lot of gold glitter. (as always haha)
|A small envelope, my fave way to add journaling to a page. Usually my journaling is personal and no one wants to read my personal notes so it's hidden! ;)|
|The pictures are from Valentine's Day right before we went out to see The Vow.|
Gold glitter splatters, pearls, and flowers!
|I added a pocket behind the pictures with some journaling in it + the ticket stubs.|
|A detail shot.|
I love that woodgrain chipboard piece from the Crate Portrait collection!!
I layered vellum, white tissue paper, vintage sheet music, vintage lace, a feather, a doily, and a glassine envelope to hold journaling.
The diecut flowers are from Pink Paislee's London Market Ephemera. So adorable!
|A page that shows my true scrapbooking style :)|
Everything is layered on a sheet of white Swiss dot cardstock.
I included gold glitter splatters (made with my fave glitter, Martha Stewart Smoky Quartz).
I typed "perfect together" onto a sheet of vellum using my typewriter, (Yes! You can run vellum through your typewriter!) I cut the vellum to fit my picture, ripped off the top edge for a raw look, then machine stitched it directly onto the photo.
I've layered tissue paper, a piece of a doily, a patterned paper strip, flowers fussy cut from Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic Beautiful paper, lace fabric, patterned paper, and a kraft envelope.
The border at the bottom of the page is vintage lace that I sewed on.
|Detail of the kraft pocket with journaling card.|
To make the twine circle I first traced a bowl lightly in pencil, covered the line in glue using a glue pen, then adhered the twine to the glue.
The little white pearls were made using my Opal Viva Decor Pearl Pen.
|All the layers...2 of them are lifted with pop dots for depth.|
|Picture of us waiting for the concert to start.|
Lots of imperfect machine stitching :) The best kind.
|Details of layering. Love the way white tulle ruffles look!|
I did some heat embossing on this layout. I used my music note roller stamp from Stampin' Up and embossed with gold embossing powder.
|I added a small kraft envelope behind the picture/layers and filled it with a card with journaling on it and a ticket stub.|
The pull-out tab is just a strip of patterned paper folded in half and stapled.
|A page with lots of white space, my favourite. Complete with glitter splatters and a vintage doily!|
And I have been hoarding that October Afternoon date label for ages.
|Layering details. Paper, tissue paper, chipboard, glitter, and machine stitching. |
I first machine stitched the photo, and then layered it over the polka dot patterned paper with 3D glue dots to make it stand out.
I used a card cut out of patterned paper from the Echo Park line, This & That, Charming. THC26004 Primer, these cards are perfect for any project! Just love them.
I wore out the stiff paper a bit just by squeezing it in my hand then added mini alpha stickers to make a title.
|For this one I used the Simple Stories Documented Collection.|
|Sweet Mila :)|
A silver doily and glitter splatters!
|A detail photo of the "M". I diecut an uppercase M from patterned paper and then covered it in liquid epoxy. A homemade embellie :)|
|I used a lot of Crate paper goodies on this one, mostly the Portrait collection.|
|A bit closer up.|
I am loving metallic silver thread on projects lately. So fun!
And that Crate button? Swoon. I need 20 more.
|I added a mini paper bag behind my photos to hold journaling.|
|To make the glittery background behind the papers I stamped a text stamp using glue, then sprinkled glitter over top.|
The pink butterfly was cut out of one of the patterned papers.
