Cheri and I are back to creating layouts with our manufacturing challenges...woo hoo! I need something to get me going. This time around Making Memories was up, so I dug deep and came up with an older line -- Funky Vintage Lizzie Collection. I figured I had bought tons and embellies to boot, so I had better get to using it. I swear some times when I go through my scrap room and start reorganizing and putting stuff away, I get a bit depressed. I mean I LOVE paper and all other supplies, but the fact that I have SOOOO much and know in my lifetime I will never use it all makes me depressed. Why is that? Okay...can't think of that now! LOL Here is the layout I made using a photo of my sweet niece Gabby that I doctored up with Paint the Moon actions. Love her stuff!!
I used lots of stuff on here as every time I looked there was something else I wanted to put on it. The word rub-ons are Cosmo Cricket and the bird cage rub-on is SEI. The bird/flowers piece and the tickets are House of 3 Silhouette print and cut designs. Love the new Martha Stewart border punch!
This blue flower base was created using the Fiskars Treading Water border punch as shown in Scrapbooks Etc.'s April edition. Loved how they showed you many ways to make homemade flowers!!
Next up is a layout that I finally took a photo of. I had started Project 12 and didn't actually finish it...gasp, I know right! I don't know why I have the hardest time sticking to a project and this one was EASY! I guess I could still go back and try to finish last years' photos with a monthly layout. TRY is the key word...lol
Created the flower using Tim Holtz's flower die -- TERRIFIC die for flower making.
And here are two House of 3 print and cut files for the Silhouette that I stapled together. They definitely have some great files. The little bird on the top is from Maya Road -- cute thing!
Well, that's it for now. I'm hoping to get back down in the scrap room some time this week. I was seriously jonesing to scrap and getting that in really helped with my attitude this week.
Wishing you all a happy scrappy week!
