I see a chance to use up some more of those end strips off scrapbooking papers!
I'm running short of thank you cards at the moment so I'm replenishing my stock.
I've used 3 strips on here plus some full stops from an old set of alphas.
They are RED METALLIC , not black as they appear on here.
I like this sketch and might make more in this design.
In fact here's a second one I've just made
(slightly different design but I like it just as much.)
I'm combining 3 challenges in this layout.
100 patterned paper challenge has this sketch Scrapping4fun wants dots and stripes. This layout features both.The dots are on the horizontal strip under the photos.
and the Take 5 at paper Issues wants this
I started with striped paper.Then I used pink and blue as my mats.
I've stitched across the top as in the sketch.
Next I added the 2 strips and 2 black chalkboard stickers.
On the chalkboard stickers I placed glittery sticker moths and on the bottom one a die cut place marker.
Finally I added a title and 3 black asterisks stickers.
So in summary I used pink,blue,stripes,die cuts and stickers.
Vivid occurs in Sydney each winter. All the buildings are lit up. Yesterday we went on a harbour cruise to see the lights.
I thought gardens which led to birds and insects. After searching through my papers I found this velour one from MME named lush. The wild garden with bird reminded me of the photo.
Next I found a photo of me taken last year at Las Vegas in front of Secret Garden.
The colours were right, so I matted it on a few different green scraps then added a butterfly sticker top left plus a FWAB jack vine in olive green to link the paper and the photo.
My flair says "This happened" and my title is LIVE.
Paper Issues says "We want you to place all of your goodies at the top 1/3 of your page. That means nothing on the bottom 2/3 of your page! You can do it and we can not wait to see!" I chose a striped vertically paper then placed 2 papers across the top in co-ordinating blues. I've used 3 stickers, the oval quote,the branch and LOVE. There is also a flair from Bramble Fox as well as a journaling card and a camera cut from another patterned paper. Simple and quick!
They must have known I had some Graphic45 birds and flowers to use. :)
Here is a card made with a bird and a sentiment saying near nature.
What a good place to be!
I glued some tiny blue Prima flowers to make it look prettier.
One of the current trends is using triangles on layouts. I have found these examples.
I don't think I'm wanting to cut my photos into triangles.
If you look hard at your embellishments you will find triangles within stars, pennants,tags etc.
For my layout I decided to scraplift an example I saw online, and used what I had in my kit that was big enough.
My trick was to draw one triangle then trave around it on several other scraps of paper.
As my card features a chipboard tiger I'm thinking younger masculine,but I guess it could work either way.
I inked and used black gel pen to colour the tiger and mounted him on corrugated card inside a frame.
Here is the sketch for Freshly made sketches.
I've made a goodbye card for a man.
It features 2 layers of checks plus a wolf that I've had for years. The alphas are leather,so it is a very masculine card.
and they are also combining with Paper Issues this month.
I've used my last 2 whole pieces of patterned paper from my kit to document this beautiful tree that we saw in Hamilton Island. I've also use a lace doily (heart shaped) plus 3 tags and 2 die cut flowers.
I had these cameras on paper and thought they would make a great card. My sentiment says today so would work for Birthday or Fathers' Day or any special male occasion.The top camera is mounted on foam so it stands up from the card.
This is for the either/or challenge at Home and scrapped. I used patterned paper, pink and hearts. It is my self depreciating humour-I couldn't resist having my photo taken under this sign in Las Vegas.
Everything on here except the photos is from my Counterfeit kit.
use so decided to find good qualities of snakes by looking at the
Snake - Personality and Characteristics
Wise, Humorous, Brilliant
Snake is usually regarded as a dark, insidious, sly and ruthless being. Both in western countries and China, there are many legend stories about the animal. And most of the time, it is labeled with a dark image. Actually, the animal is also the symbol of wisdom. People born in the Year of the Snake according to Chinese zodiac are usually well-educated, decent, smart and humorous. They can be brilliant artists, political leaders, as well as great thinkers, such as Gandhi, Goethe, Kennedy, and Picasso.
Were you born in the year of the snake? (1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013). In summary they have pretty scales quite often and many people keep them as pets or are fascinated by them. Here's my card
