So today is going to be one of those days filled with running errands & housework... Sure I'd rather be doing something else but it has to be done.
I'd rather be:
working on a layout
visiting blogs & forums
talking to a friend
Oh well the sooner I start the sooner I'll finish...
Here's a layout I completed using a photo of my mom going to her sr. prom.
The titlework is made with the Cricut Storybook cart. I did my favorite technique of cutting 4 from inexpensive kraft cardstock from Hobby Lobby & adhering them together. I tried to cut a 5th layer from Bazzill but it was too intricate & was tearing big time so I decided to just ink the top layer with some Tim Holtz distressed inks. It turned out better than what I had planned. Don't you love when that happens?
Forgot the supply list.... thanks Karen Sue for reminding me....
Cardstock (Paper Resources); Paper (Prima - brown, K&CO - pink & cream & Webster's Pages - under titlework); Flowes (Prima & Hero Arts); Tags (Tim Holtz); Inks (Tim Holtz, Ranger & Colorbox); Stamp (Studio Calico); Titlework (Cricut Storybook); Punch (Martha Stewart EK); Thread (Coats & Clarks); Ribbon (Misc Vintage); Trim (Hobby Lobby & Webster's Pages); Buttons (Misc Vintage stash); Pearls (Hero Arts)
I wanted to let you know about a new group. It started on facebook & now it is on the ing boards. I'm loving the ing groups that I've been joining lately. Paperclipping is over there & it's nice to have gallery/forum/blogs etc all in one place with live chat added too. So the new one is Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends. I started a couple groups on there about 2 of my favorite scrapbooking topics (all you regulars are shaking your heads) say it with me.... heritage & my childhood yay you guessed it. I hope you will join me over there for some inspiration.
Well thanks for visiting today.
Take some time for yourself to be creative... whatever that means to you.
MCT Manly Monday!
