Brick and Morter

 This page has a few new products on it that just arrived, some I waited patiently for... AKA the view master ( Picture wheel ) die from Sizzix.

I had some chipboard pieces that I wanted to use the distress stains on, but first I stamped an image with archival ink so as not to smudge it.

 Then I used distress stain to color the chipboard. I also covered the wooden pocket watch and the swirls on the side.

 I added a bit of glitter on the trees
 Inside the viewmaster I used the little pictures that you get when you print pictures. They give you a contact sheet and the pictures are a perfect size.

Supply List;

Kaiser - Base Coat Collection
Ranger - Distress stains, Vintage Photo-Forest moss and Fired Brick
FabScraps - Chipboard pieces
Maya Road - Flourishes
Sizzix - Picture Wheel, Torn Notebook
Prima - Wood embellishments
Prima - flowers

Place in time challenge.

Hello  all, I was at a class the other night, and we did a page from the Graphic 45 line Place in Time. The teacher gave us a challenge to design the second page and have a contest between us classmates. So, I did a page, and I had to share. I know I have done January already, but if you look back on the other post, they are completely different, the colors are even different. It just goes to show how versatile these papers are. I also learned a trick at the class. Some of the months have coordinating colors on them, for instance January and July have complementing  colors! 
 Here is my completed page. We used the tattered poinsettia die for the flowers, they turned out awesome!
Here is a close up of the flowers. Well, have a happy scrappy day! Hop over to Scrapbooker's Paradise to see the shopping list. And I challenge everyone to make a page from the Graphic 45 line :-)

The Ides of march

 Hello all :-) Today is a layout for the March Calendar from Graphic 45.
I used 3 sheets of cardstock, one Graphic foundation page and one cut apart page. 

My new favorite thing to play with... Inka Gold
 I cut a pretty edge out of glitter paper, with the American Crafts Knock out punch.

 Using your finger you can cover any piece of chipboard. Cover it, then buff with a paper towel.

 I crumpled the stamps first then put glossy accents on them. Once it dried I put pop dots behind and layered them on the page in the corner.
 A little bit of bling, I used popdots to raise up my Bonne Fete strip, I cut it too short, oopsy so I just added a piece after. Cut a "flag style end" into one side, and let it hang off the edge a bit. diamond stickles on the flourishes and stems of the flowers, purple highlights on the purple flowers.
 The photo has two layers for a mat. Lighter green on the bottom.
 The little tag is highlighted with Inka Gold on the edge, and pop dots give it some depth.

A long purple strip top to bottom, glitter tucked underneath. All the photos are matted, a few strips of the paper ribbons with words. Glitter and some bling.... Have a happy scrappy day :-)
