First Design Team!

Good morning :)

Today I have an announcement to make...I have been accepted to be a member of the 2012 Chattering Robin's Design Team!  The term runs from July - December and I am so excited to get started. My first design team!
Check out the blog here.
My first post will be going live on July 7th!!

+ a new page share!

I loved this idea...because sometimes I just love a piece of pattern paper SO much but hesitate to use up a whole sheet as a background. What a waste that would be ;). So I did a sort of scraplift from Marcy's page and love the way it looks. 

I am in love with the new badges I bought from this super cute Etsy shop. I totally recommend them!
Thanks for looking. :)


Field Trip.

A page using the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Line from Winter CHA! Love the entire collection!

I moved to Ontario 2 weeks ago, and my boyfriend was able to come with me for a few days to help me get settled in. So we took a field trip and visited a few special places around town, and Mt. Mckay Lookout was one of them!

The little mason jar was cut out of one of the Dear Lizzy patterned papers, then I heat embossed it with clear powder in a scroll design.
I handcut the pink heart from pink felt, and added a lot of gold glitter. (as always haha)
A small envelope, my fave way to add journaling to a page. Usually my journaling is personal and no one wants to read my personal notes so it's hidden! ;)
More shares to come!


Peekaboo Flowers.

I made this layout at a crop quite awhile ago.

The pictures are from Valentine's Day right before we went out to see The Vow.
Gold glitter splatters, pearls, and flowers!

I added a pocket behind the pictures with some journaling in it + the ticket stubs. 

A detail shot.
I love that woodgrain chipboard piece from the Crate Portrait collection!!
I layered vellum, white tissue paper, vintage sheet music, vintage lace, a feather, a doily, and a glassine envelope to hold journaling.
The diecut flowers are from Pink Paislee's London Market Ephemera. So adorable!


The Robin's Nest Design Team

My project for The Robin's Nest Design Team! Check out the online store here

A page that shows my true scrapbooking style :)
Everything is layered on a sheet of white Swiss dot cardstock.
I included gold glitter splatters (made with my fave glitter, Martha Stewart Smoky Quartz).
I typed "perfect together" onto a sheet of vellum using my typewriter, (Yes! You can run vellum through your typewriter!) I cut the vellum to fit my picture, ripped off the top edge for a raw look, then machine stitched it directly onto the photo.
I've layered tissue paper, a piece of a doily, a patterned paper strip, flowers fussy cut from Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic Beautiful paper, lace fabric, patterned paper, and a kraft envelope.
The border at the bottom of the page is vintage lace that I sewed on.

Detail of the kraft pocket with journaling card.
To make the twine circle I first traced a bowl lightly in pencil, covered the line in glue using a glue pen, then adhered the twine to the glue.
The little white pearls were made using my Opal Viva Decor Pearl Pen

All the layers...2 of them are lifted with pop dots for depth.

Thanks for looking!!
