Twilight Tuesday Scrapbooking Challenge #1: Who’s in Your Pack?

What a great day! Actually, this is going to be a great week… but more about that another time. Today is the first time I get to introduce you to Twilight Tuesday’s newest Challenge! A scrapbooking challenge! Now, you should probably know by now that scrapbooking holds a special place in my heart, so I am super excited to be bringing you a new scrapbook challenge every other Monday! How awesome is that? Here’s my challenge to you:

Welcome to the first Twilight Tuesday Scrapbooking Challenge! I am so excited about these new challenges. Every other Monday, I will be giving you a new topic. This topic will be taken from the pages of the wonderful Twilight Saga, and then I will reinterpret it to fit into our “real” lives! Next, YOU get to make a scrapbook page(s) about the topic! We want to know about you and your life! But, you can of course, make it about the books/movies as well! It’s up to you! We want you to have fun!!!

On to the first challenge… The wolf pack is made up of brothers. Not brothers by blood, but by the situation that binds them together. They are a family unto themselves. So, who’s in your pack? Who’s by your side no matter what? Is it your best friends? Maybe it’s actually your blood relatives! Are you a part of an extended military family where those on base with you are your new pack? Make a scrapbook page(s) or mini album about this very important bond!

So of course, I have a sample to show you.

Click on the pictures to see them bigger! As you can see, I did a page about my sisters' and I. These pics are from ‘07, during my Mom’s Birthday Bash. We were pretty goofy that day. You should see some of the other pictures. Ridiculous! My little sibs are definitely my Pack. When we are together, we can be pretty insane. We have a really good time together. Yeah, we fight… but that’s what we’re supposed to do! We’re Sisters!

So I sliced these photos up quite a bit as you can see. I felt like doing a technique I haven’t done in a while, so I thought of this! We are in my Mom’s backyard, which obviously has a lot of green, and I just wanted that to expand through the page. It creates a bit of movement too, which we were def. doing here!

For my title, I used super huge stamps from Magnetic Poetry (of all places!), cut out the letters and faux stitched one side where a shadow could be. I also “stitched” around one side of the photos too, and added the words “Sisters,” “Buds,” and “Dorks.” We are all of those things to each other, for sure!

Wondering about how the pictures came out black, white, and green? Here’s my tutorial from a previous blog post! Click HERE! It’s super easy, and it’s a pretty rad effect!

Now, move along to Erica’s to see her creation!

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!
