Tiffany Blue and Yellow Custom Scrapbook

I have been commissioned to create a scrapbook for a tween using the colors Tiffany Blue and Yellow. I thought I would share some of those pages with you today. I was not given any photographs, they will be entered by the girl who receives the book later.

I used a variety of paper companies, including My Mind’s Eye, Basic Grey, K & Co, DCWV, and Prism.

It wasn’t easy finding papers with only those 2 colors, so I needed to improvise a lot and use bits of white, black and grey here and there.

I stamped the butterflies on using a Martha Stewart clear set.

This is one of my favorite pages. I like the tilted squares and the punch of black.

I was very happy to find these glitter swirls from Making Memories. I used them throughout the album. I also repeated the use of yellow and turquoise gems and pearls. It added a touch of elegance without making it all too stuffy.

I also made sure to repeat the papers. No sheet was used only once. It helps keep consistency throughout the book as well.

So? What do you think? It was a lot of fun to make this album. I just need to finish working on the cover (it’s a naked album) and then it will be done. Hopefully, I’ll get another custom scrapbook order soon, as I really love to make them. Have an inspiring day!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
