I'd been seeing some kraft papers lately that had like a black border to them. I have no idea who makes them, but I really like them. So if anyone knows, PLEASE pass on the info. Anywho...I made my own here. I used a Glitz roller stamp to make a border on the kraft paper, then went back with a white Signo and filled in some of the loops. Papers are Cosmo Cricket Early Bird (LOVE this line:) and a strip of MM Sabrina. The stem is Sizzix cut and outline with a black Zig. I made my flowers using scraps, my scalloped circle punch, buttons and adhesive mounts for dimension. The little quote box is LYB mounted on black cardstock.
This one was inspired by a recent LO Lal did. The background paper is AC Amplified. Diecut paper is MM Sabrina as well as the black pattern behind the pic. Used some Quikutz butterfly diecuts someone sent me, a swank label, some MM tiny alphas and a Colorbok card I got in a pack at J's quite a while back and just opened and used:)
This one is a lift off 2Peas. I SO love the Collage Press diecut papers. I got these in the mail last week. The pic is of Mattie and Nick at Mattie's recent bday gathering. The background is just a piece of chipboard I was working on; not an actual part of the LO. Besides the Collage Press paper and diecuts, I used a piece of MME stripe paper and an MME rubon title that I put onto some plain cardstock then cut out.
Another lift off 2Peas. Pic of Mattie and V a couple of Halloweens ago. The little mosters are some Reminisce stamps I just got at M's. They are so stinkin' cute. I stamped them onto white cardstock, colored them with color pencils, cut them out and glued them onto black cardstock. Cut them out again. The orange border strip was made using one of my MS border punches. Paper is kraft and Scenic Route, AC chip Thickers, MM tiny alphas, mini brads and a swank label.
This is a pic of V and Mia at Mattie's birthday gathering. V kept making silly faces and Mia kept trying to copy her. It was SO cute. Then V would make some really silly face and Mia would just crack up. I built on black cardstock. Used some Girl Friday that I cut into a half artisan, mounted onto cardstock and cut again. Cricut cut label from Scenic Route grid pp. Cut the letters out of a sheet of the Girl Friday as well as the little bee and butterfly. Carolyn Gavin border strip and white Signo to make the bee "trail".
Not too much going on here. I went by my mom's last Tuesday and we took Mattie to lunch for his actual birthday. Did a little shopping too. Lal came over on Thursday and we did a little scrapping here and a little more shopping;)
I got all my cleaning done today as well as my grocery shopping. I'm getting LOs planned for Saturday cause Lal and I are planning Scrapapalooza Deux. I've got 3 together so far. Easy, quick, simple ones so far, but I can use those to warm up;)
Heading to bed earlier tonight cause I've been staying up WAY too late. Night all:)
