I made this Birthday Mini album for some design team work at my lss using the Glitz Design Hoopla line and Creative Imaginations chipboard album. The Glitz is just beautiful and so fun! TFL!

Vintage picture fun!!

I just love using the vintage pictures my mother gave me from when when I was a kid! I laugh every time I look at the clothes I'm wearing, but it also sparks cool memories of my childhood. This picture was taken on the day I first saw snow in my life in 1973! Living on the southern coast it's very rare for it to snow - I think it only snowed two times - maybe an inch each time - the 19 years that I lived down south! My sister and best friend are in the picture with me! For the techniques on the page I heat embossed the smaller snowflakes down one side using Zing embossing powder! They really POP off the page! Then, I spray misted over some large chipboard snowflakes using white Mister Huey by Studio Calico. On the edges of the chipboard letters, I daubed a little white paint with my paint dauber. TFL!

Studio Calico Love!!

Loving the February kit from Studio Calico! It's so fun and bright and versatile!! And I really like how the stickers gave me a journal prompt! These are just a few of things that make Jonathan such a great son!! TFL!!

More GCD!

I think this line from GCD Studios is perfect for the couple pictures that I took for my kids - not only the colors but the designs are so romantic but not too frilly! I used the Chipart dies to add some embossed designs to the borders and then painted them with various colored paints. I love the subtle texture it gives to the chipboard while making it my own design and style!! TFL!

A Two-Pager!!!

It has literally been over 2 years since I've done a two page layout! And it took me forever - a whole weekend of fretting and rearranging and second guessing everything I did!! I guess I like it - not sure about the picture placements but oh well - it's done...LOL! I used my new February Studio Calico kit to make this! TFL!

GCD Studios!! Just a Couple.....

of layouts I recently worked on this past weekend!! I've been crazy busy at work, but I just felt the need to create this weekend!! I made these layouts using some gorgeous GCD papers that my lss had on sale that I had somehow missed (must have come out before I started working there ;) )!
That huge butterfly just called out to me to be fussy cut and used in the center of the page to really highlight the picture of my daughter. And the flower paper really captured the beauty and elegance of the picture that I took of my son and his fiancee!! Now I can't wait to see what GCD Studios has in store for the new season!! I'll definitely be looking out for it in my lss!! At least I've stocked up on their older lines!! TFL!
