Never thought I would clash red on pink but I do like these cards. The heart paper is scenic route loveland and the other paper is my minds eye bloom & grow, single sheets that I got in a kit ages ago.
I am so pleased to have re-discovered this bundle of stash (inque boutique cabana) ... its been useful for just about every challenge and prompt. I have made two cards with the quotation in a pocket made from a spare page protector. I even got to use up more of my HUGE stash of brads.
This is for the CJ Places of interest. i tried to mix and match the oddments of blossoms that I have, but then found a whole pack of these pea green ones that match perfectly the inque boutique cabana. I also got to use up 10 brads (only 4 of this type left to use). All edges have been inked with brushed corduroy distress ink.
I am completely out of order now, not that it matters. Shimelle's prompts are proving to be very useful for the three circle journals I am taking part in. Here is the double page spread that i have done on the theme of Myth. The illustrations are out of a book I picked up at Redcar car boot for 20p and the paper is inque boutique cabana. As usual I have inked all edges with brushed corduroy distress ink.
Today's challenge is to create a layout with 10 of something, so I have used 10 patterned papers. The papers are from a HOTP heritage pack that I have had for a long time, the ribbon is from a chocolate box and the alphabets were in a kit, no idea what brand. My mum is 18 in the photo, so it was 1947, but the alphabets had no numbers!
I've never followed a page map before, so that's exactly what I did for this prompt. I know I'm supposed to include a photo and journalling, but it was difficult enough finding scraps of card that went together!
No surprise that pleated ribbon is so expensive ... its darn difficult to do. I had three attempts at machine pleating before I got anything worth scrapping. I found it easiest to staple then adhere to the page with double sided tape.
This paper is inque boutique cabana and I bought a whole pack! I prefer double sided paper, its much sturdier and makes colour matching so much easier. The colours are much brighter than I usually choose but I thought they would be good for summer holiday layouts or mini books, especially since there are two sheets of everything, including quotes and journalling blocks. I have chosen the "other project" of Shimelles challenge, since in looking thru all the pizza boxes of kits, I have accumulated a pile of alphabets and chipboard and blooms but had no where to put them. Now they are on my bookcase, within easy reach.
