I have worked on a few layouts this weekend first is a layout I did for Scrapbook Steals. We are starting over fresh, with Topaz #1. And here is my Topaz #1:
Products used in my layout:
- MME Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky
- Prima flowers
- AC ribbon
- DMC floss
- Stickles in Diamond
- AC Thickers in Delight
- Glimmer Mist in Patina
I struggled and struggled with the title on this layout. No matter what I do to it I don't like it. So I am just leaving it. I did take the twine off just a minute ago and it looks better. I don't know what is wrong with me but I just can't get it right on this layout. And it ticks me off, because this is one of my good photos from one of my photo shoots with Kadence! UGH!
The next layout is for Sketchy Thursdays 7.28 sketch. I am not happy with this one either. I started scrapping, and just got really bored with it. Soooooo....instead of stopping, I forced myself to keep going and this is the result! BLAH!
Products used in my sketch:
- Echo Park Summer Days kit
- Martha Stewart flower punch and stamp
Okay, so after two horribly disappointing layouts in a row, I swore to not scrap for a week. I didn't even make it past Monday! I went to my LSS this weekend to get my hands on some of the new Authentique papers....I have been in love with them since they debuted, and now I am wondering how I scrapped without them!
This is a layout I did for Scrapbook Challenges sketch #260.
Products used in my layout:
- Authentique Journey & Blissful papers
- LYB doily
- Jill Bean Soup Corrugated kraft alphas
- Martha Stewart Optic dot border punch
- Blissful petite type alphas
- Journey Diction
- Journal Genie
- Martha Stewart pigment ink
- Ranger Perfect Pearls in turquoise
- Stickles in silver, gold, and diamond
I really really REALLY love how this came out! I am so happy with it! I am so glad to have found a paper company that isn't necessarily geared towards so much "themed" papers, and more everyday papers. I love that these papers can be used for anything! Sometimes, my OCD person inside of me goes nuts with so much themed stuff in my stash....I feel like I have to use it for that specific purpose...and if I don't I get all panicky and freaked out. Hahaha, I am weird.
I am going to try to scrapbook as much as I can this week, because I'm starting WORK (aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaak!) next Monday! I can't believe it to be honest with you. I have been home with KK since she was born, and I stopped working about 4 weeks before she was born. SO----I am so used to being home it's going to be so weird. However, I have worked my whole life (since I was 16) so I am sure, that once I get back into the swing of things I will feel like I never left! Thankfully, I am going to the same job that I left before I moved to Ft. Laudedale. So I know the job and I love the people, and they love me! I couldn't ask for more!
Thanks so much for reading! Have a great week!
