Magazines have always been a source of inspiration for me… love looking for color and style trends, typographical ideas, and I LOVE ads. My mom put a box together for me, and one of my friend’s dad who was coming to visit brought me the express delivery! SO fab…Q got a couple Sunday dresses, connor got a springy sweater vest, and there was some big bottles of p-nut butter and grape jelly. Of course, once it was too late, I thought of 20 other things! LOL. I try not to focus on what I can’t get, or don’t have…and I think most stuff I can totally live without. Stuff, that I used to just suffer without! And we can buy ‘butter-flavor crisco’ at the import store… so that is a relief! Lol (that is the key ingred. to my fav choc chip cookies). THANKS MOM...
I scrapbooked for awhile yesterday… here are the results. I was just hoping to get some creative juices flowing! I enjoy that no-pressure stuff.
This paper is from my new CHA collection... again, love this color. i used these chipboard moon and stars, and the matching journaling spots...i adhered the moon and stars (on SALE here!) to a tim holtz fragment, and layered it over the journaling spot. (the 'bryson' is my new casual stamps from CHA winter, coming soon!). i also used: clocks and silhouettes.
This is one of my favorite photos from our trip to Australia...i love the birds-eye view! Here is more new paper... (Summer Sun, just shipping!). you know how i love photo corners... and here i just mixed some of these, and these on opposing corners. To make the title... i used some foam alphas, and i am addicted to the fragments right now, so i mounted the h&0 to the fragment, and then the 2 on another one and layered it on top. i stamped using a journaling spot stamp directly under the opening of the 0, so i could journal inside! cute. around the outside edge of the page, i embellished with some glossy chipboard flowers, and finished the title with the matching brackets.
Maybe you have noticed.. but Advantus has put special pricing on LOTS of items from the Heidi Swapp line that you can purchase from my heidiswapp.com website!! stuff that you can just use over and over... there is a feature where you can even sort by price... and there are TONS of .99$ deals! join in w/ a friend and order together to cut on shipping costs.. and go crazY! it's FUN to get stuff at those great prices! i have been working on a replenishment order. i am feeling out of everything!
I still owe information about Edmonton…just finalizing details. Look for that info tomorrow.
