So Handsome!

I have been busy working on a Custom Scrapbook for one of the women that used to shop in my store before it closed. She has 2 adorable kids, and some fabulous photos. I wanted to share some of the layouts I’ve been creating for her, so here is one of my favorites. I have the Mom’s permission to show the layouts with the pictures of her children on them.

How cute are these photos??? Please click on any of my pictures to see it bigger. As you can see, I was pretty inspired by the crib bumper. I love the simplicity of the flowers. The colors of the room are great, and let’s face it… this baby is a great inspiration too!

I decided to mimic the look of some of the flowers by cutting out some strips of paper. I love the finished look! The patterned paper I used (Basic Grey) has a touch of the blue wall color, but not enough, so I chalked the edges of the entire page with a teal-ish mix of colors that I created. It really cooled the page down perfectly and added an extra pop of color that I was looking for. But I needed a little texture… so I found some braided threads that come with adhesive already on it (so easy!!!) and I added a strip of that to both mattes. Perfect! Just enough stuff to jazz up the photos without overpowering them. I’ll be posting some of the other pages I’ve made soon. But until then, happy scrappin’!

this is so adorable! Love how you mimicked the flowers - too cool & green by using scraps! Love that little guy's hat! I wish I could find one for my little guy - just black, then he could match his daddy :o)

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!
