I wanted to show how this kit could be used for both masculine and feminine projects - so up first is the masculine and below the feminine.
This is a picture of my son Morgan during his spring photo shoot at school in 2nd Grade. He had a lot go on during this school year. He moved schools, houses, cities, moving away from all his friends and other family, and for Morgan change is hard. He handled it, not the best way, but things got better as time went on. He is defiantly stronger now, but we have a long way to go. I always want the best for him, he is such a sweet kid, his his smile melts my heart.
I used the wonderful items from the September Birds of a Feather Kit to create this layout along with Susan K. Weckesser stamps and stencil. I went for a masculine feel with a dark edge to it. The pops of gold represent the light at the end of the tunnel, where there is dark there come light!! I used a ton of the elements from the kit in unusual ways. I used the twine on my strips as accent pieces along with the cork geo tags, and added a few other fun embellishments from my stash too. I did add some journaling here and there on the strips too, but mostly they are part of the design.…
My first layout is a photo of my son being goofy by wearing three hats - the gold phrase "stay gold" was perfect here for him to always keep his innocence. I trimmed the layout in gold and used the gold glitter paste on a wood piece to continue the hints of gold.
Next up is a simple card - I really love this color combo!!
Thanks for stopping by!
Totally "crushing" on all this Gold in the kit ....love love love it!!! Such fun colors to play around with and then oranges, greens, golds are for sure in my everyday pictures!!!
In this page I wanted to cut out and pop up the green chevron paper off the page and then stitch it back down and then another technique I wanted to try was adding white paint to the glitter paste to make it thicker and not translucent ...this was fun to play with!!!
And then here is a closeup of the page:
And then my second page that I did was after riding the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train I took a picture of their cottage and all the lovely greenery around their house ...I painted and used the glitter paste on the wooden leaves and then cut out and layered the leaves on the page!!!
Here is the close-up of the page:…Continue
I made this cute little fox card yesterday for my eldest son's teacher, but the problem is I wanted to make more than 1 card since all my kids teachers deserve a card to say thanks, but I did not have the supplies to create 4 exact card. Here I will show you how to create "replica" cards from inspiration or to make more of the same card you just made with what you have on hand!!
Here is the original Fox card I made from the September Birds of a Feather Kit. I did delete the twine, staples, and glitter for my duplicate cards to speed up the time it took to complete the cards.
Problem 1 - I only had 1 fox in my September Kit- so I found some other wood I had in my stash - how cute are these little mushrooms? The rest of the card is the same, yeah another card done!!
Problem 2 - I ran out of the white and black paper in the strips on the right side, but I did find some extra leaf paper so i just revered the white paper layer to the orange side so it would not be white on white, and substitute 2 done, and another card made!!…Continue
