There are no birthdays today
Hi ladies!! Today I am sharing with you my final March kit reveal. I have loved playing with this kit! I have two layouts and one card to share. Here is the first layout!
This layout was so fun to make. I started with the stencil that came in the kit and used embossing paste to put the title on the large chalkboard piece. I then layered papers and stickers from the kit to add dimension behind the photo. The finishing details were stitching down the banner that I made and the bottom border then adding some ink splatters with the color shine.
Here are a few close ups...
Now for layout #2:
Pages can definitely come together fast when the page is already embellished a bunch. I added the photo and some embellishments to the top and bottom clusters. Super easy and then finished off again with some bronze color shine. (Oh, how I love color shine!)
Finally a card to finish it off!
Sweet and simple card was made with a sketch I found online. Can I just say that I am in LOVE with the butterflies from the…Continue
First up are my next two projects that I made using the March kit - one of which includes my technique too!!
I made a card with a couple of the stickers from the Carta Bella sticker sheet that was available this month. I layered them on top a piece of the gorgeous vellum and then added some of the very cool sequins (that have adhesive on the back of them!!!) and butterflies from the kit.
Here is a of close-up of the card
Next is another card made using more of the stickers and some scraps from my first projects (my favorite way to use the pretty bits left over!). It includes some of the chipboard hearts that have a technique some to them that I will show you how to make! It just gives plain chipboard a little extra something to add some dimension and shine.Continue
I shill haven't lost my love for banners. I love them in all shapes and sizes. and they are one of my most FAVORITE things to add to a layout for visual interest. These two layouts that I did with the GORGEOUS March kit both use banners in the design.
For this first one, I used sideways banner strips to layer my photos on. I inked the edges black and curled the tips just a bit for added definition. This layout is about our "Fingertip Kiss"
It is kinda cheesy, but I love it. When we are in different places, one of us will send the other a kiss by taking a selfie of us blowing a kiss. This one, Chris was at the Houston Rodeo cook-off and I was at work. We couldn't be together, but at least we could send a kiss! That kiss means "I LOVE YOU" to us, and is one of those little things that often get forgotten over time, so I wanted to document it.
Here is a close up of the embellishment cluster. I used a couple yellow rose buds from my stash to accent this layout.
This next one, I did a stringed banner to go back and forth across the page and used tiny photos of my daughter and her bunny. I wanted this layout to have a more whimsical feel, so the banner is more of a birthday banner style. "Bunny Love" captures the true love between a girl and her bunny. She would carry that bunny around in her easter basket until he hopped out, and then she would have to chase him to get him back in again. …Continue
Good afternoon, Chickies!
Linda, here, sharing the first couple of projects I've created using the beautiful March kit. All of the beautiful patterns and colors are really putting me in the mood for spring! For my first project I created a layout of my kids for their first day of school. I fussy cut the school subject blocks from a piece of add on paper and used them to help create a backdrop for my picture. I then fussy cut some flowers from another piece of the add on paper, added in my title and the layout was finished.
**Sorry about the dark picture...it's cloudy and blah here today. Hopefully I can get a better picture tomorrow**
For my second layout I created a simple and elegant card. I love the color red, and this Bella Carte paper was PERFECT for a card. What made this even better? I used one piece of paper for the entire card! I threw on the simple sticker to create my sentiment and finished the card off with a butterfly.
Hopefully the weather is letting up in your neck of the woods and you…Continue
