kAISERCRAFT WILDFLOWER KIT

                                                                       

Here is the next two page lay out that I promised. Sorry its late
life just seems to get in the way of my craft time..
For this layout I used the blue cardstock from the kit and the printed
paper "flowering" 
Trim the print paper to 11 X 11 and adhere to the cardstock


Next I created flowers using a punch and pink tissue paper.
Add them to the page over the printed pink flowers and attach the
leaf die cuts from your kit.
From my stash I added ribbon "flags" over green cardstock and die
cut a few butterflies.


Next I inked the wood die cut pieces, found in your kit, with Tims
"peacock feathers" ink and then covered them with glossy accents.
The first page has three photos double matted and the second two photos.
I finished the layout with the beads from the kit on the bottom of the first
page and on the top of the second.  Use appropriate stickers from thhttp://www.scrapendipitystore.com/search/kit+of+the+month/e
sticker sheet and finish it with a waterfall of "bling" from the package in your kit.

Fun Friday with Pam


for publishing my Layout in the Summer issue!
Page 48 Yeah!! doing my happy dance!

This layout was created with Graphic 45 paper and various embellishments from my stash. The stick pin is actually one that I assembled myself from trinkets and bits and bobs.
This is a very old photo of my Grandmother Grandfather and Uncle. I wish I could have known them when they were this age. I believe they are both younger than my oldest daughter in this photo. Their life wasn't easy, but they always managed.
 
This issue is full of inspiration from around the world and from the Creative Scrapbooker team! You can pick it up in store today!!

Fun Friday with Pam

Hope everyone is having a terrific long weekend!
Maybe enjoying some camping, gardening, or just laying about your happy place!
These are a group of tiles that a friend of mine is hosting for a swap group we both participate in.
The theme was 1920's - 1930's. Prohibition, women's rights, men were real men, styles were risqué and changing, the industrial revolution was in full swing, war times, dirty thirties. The color pallet was muted, dusty rose, tan etc. Nothing too contrasting. The rest is up to each persons personal style.
The hostess mailed each participant a set of sturdy chip board tiles to create each month for a total of a six month rotation. We make two complete sets of each size, keep one set and mail the other back to her.
We had one lady drop out, so I volunteered to do an extra set.
Here is a conglomeration of the tiles. They range in size from 4x6 right down to 1x1 inch.

I was mailing to Greece, so I opted to do the set in a single mail out package.
The hostess will gather them all, shuffle and mail back the completed art work from various artists.
When they are all in hand. I will assemble them in a grid that 'Valerie' put together to form an 18 x 20 inch wall art display. I will update here once I received the turnaround tiles.
