October Club Layout

Posted by PicasaThis was the layout we completed for October's hostess club. We used "Olivia" paper from Close to My Heart. It is hard to tell from the picture but we also did a technique using alcohol, reinker and pearl create-a-shade paint to spritz the base page giving it a glimmery look.

June's Club Layout

This month's club layout was using "Passages" paper. We also used coffee to stain the edges of the pages and embossing for a little tag. I still need to put a title on and pics, which I took some great ones on Father's day and of course I tried to match our clothes to the page.

Felicity Layout

Just thought I would post a layout I finished using the felicity paper and stamp. I used sandpaper for the "Beach" letters, although you may not see that detail from the picture. I also used colonial white edge anchors to secure the ribbon in between the 2 pics on the right. I can't wait to do more with this paper pack. Hopefully I will be able to play again soon.
You can win your own felicity paper pack by clicking on the National scrapbooking tag I have on the sidebar. Felicity is available till January 31st.

2010 Calendar winner

Thanks everyone who became a subscriber to my blog. I had my husband draw a name late last night. The winner of the calendar is Nancy B. I will be doing more giveaways in the future so if you didn't win this time don't despair. I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years Day. We just relaxed, played games together and of course had a great meal of pork and sauerkraut. I am hoping to scrap some today so will hopefully be posting some artwork soon. Have a great day.
