Fun Friday with Pam


This time using Graphic 45 'Ladies Diary'
I won this pack from the Creative Scrapbooker 12 Days of Christmas giveaway.
 As with most of my projects, I do the dry fits first.
These are a collection of ATC size cards that tell a story, or follow a theme.
This is it all cut up and placed in the plastic sleeve. I will be sending this to my partner. She will be sending me one as well. When I have it in hand, I will update with a photo HERE
 These are 8 mini Pocket letters about 4" x 4" each
Also from the Ladies Diary collection. I used those tiny cocktail umbrellas as embellishments. Loved the rice paper feel and the way they fit with the theme.


Thanks Pinterest for making me laugh!

Fun Friday 'Enchanted Harvest' with Pam

Still playing with the Enchanted  Harvest Kit from Scrapendipiy.
 If you hurry, there might be one left in the store!
For this LO, I wanted the same paper on both sides, but so that the borders were on the outside edges. Because that would mean that one of the sides would then be upside down. I just did a bit of fussy cutting of the obvious upside down fairy on the left hand side of the flip. I cut it out, and then used pop dots and a dab of glue to make the right side up one 3D. Then I covered the hole with the 'perfect' tab.
  I also cut the under layer of the main photo so that I could gain 3 fussy cut sunflowers to embellish the center photo.
For this layout, I pre fit the areas that would be covered. I lightly marked just under the mat, as well as where the bottom border would be.
Then I undercut all the full butterfly's I could get.
I stretch the kit value by doing this. 
I used them to make this butterfly's mounted to a tag. The tag was  small rectangle of chipboard. I used all the butterfly clipping scraps in a random glue down. Then I Mod Podged over the entire surface with 'glitter' modge. The I strategically placed butterfly's and used pop dots to 3D this layout as well.
 
PS as of today, I have the 'March Kit' in hand.....It is fantastic!!
 Stay tuned for those layouts, coming in a couple of weeks.

Keeping it Classy!!
 Thanks Pinterest

Fun Friday with Pam

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
 How about hanging your 'Heart' up for Valentines Day?
 This is a fun simple project to do. The long and short was to take 6 of my favourite papers and make a six sided hanging heart. I used the Heart Shape doilies as my pattern. Cutting each paper heart just slightly smaller so the lacy edges would show. For each heart I used 3 paper doilies and 3 heart cut outs. Then I folded them down the center and alternated gluing 1/2 hearts together. NOTE: Make sure and place your string or ribbon for hanging in the spine, before your closing in the last heart.
Check out that little face!
I added a cut out key to one and a pop open heart to another. If you are sending this out, it will lay flat for posting, and you could add photos or personal sentiments to each heart. You can use any size heart shape, cut your own or use a punch or cutting machine. Make a banner?I used honeycomb paper for the heart. I made it blue for all the ones we have loved and lost,
 but not forgotten!
 
Just for fun! Thanks Pinterest
