The biggest blessing in my life is the gift of my four wonderful boyssss. I was a stay at home mom up until a few years ago and now I am happily employed in the education field and a single mom raising the last of my four, he is a dream. I love working with children, photography and of course scrapbooking. Scrapping has become my therapy and I am so thankful that GOD has given me this gift.
Happy Sunday!!! Today I have a layout and a framed project to share...two more class ideas for my local scrap store.
These papers are just so beautiful...I forgot the paper line and the layout is at the store...but I will add them later. Lots of feminine touches on this one.
These flowers were created with the tattered florals die....the leaves are from A Child's Year...inking helps bring them to life.
I used my Martha Stewart corner punch to create the strips...cut them at 2 inches and then corner punched the edges...at 2 inches you can push the paper all the way in to get an even punch...then I've laced them with some cord and added some rhinestones.
My photo mats are from A Child's year and I used some of the left over layers from the die to create the 2 smaller flowers.
My circle was again created using the corner punch...lots of YouTube vids on the corner punches...gotta luv YouTube...can't really give anyone specific credit...so many out there. I've added ink and pen to my butterflies cut from Serenade...the metamorphosis from plain card stock to these pretty butterflies is wonderful.
This is my take on the framed piece by Tim Holtz...I've used his Salvage Stickers, grunge paper to add layers to some...the clock, calendar and compass are also from the sticker stack...filmstrip ribbon, tape ribbon, game pieces, keys & locks, tassels, word sticks and hinge clips help finish the piece. The background is made up of 3 pieces of Bazzil that have been embossed with the wonderful texture fade embossing folders...Tim has such yummy stuff....luv it!!
Hope everyone is getting ready for a funtastic 4th!!
Luv & Hugs,
