Hi everyone. I have been working on a really great project using the 7 Gypsies photo stand. This is one of the layouts I created using an enveloped covered with a print ad in the front. I added some Recollections and I Am Roses bling. The pen nip, sticking out of the flowers, is by Tim Holtz. I will post layouts as the each week until I am done. Let me know if you have any questions. I don't know if the layout is high class but I do enjoy the multiple purposes this seemingly simple layout hides.
I made the foundation for this card using my Cricut machine 2.2 years ago. I never finished it, until today. The Greeting Farm image was colored this passing December. It's beautiful! A Martha Stewart punch was used to punch the butterflies.
I used Recollection items for flower embellishments. The tag is from a Making Memories kit from 8 years ago.
Happy Holidays everyone. Why bake a cookie and gain unneeded calories when you can make an ornament. This project takes around 30 minutes and you can appreciate the results every Christmas holiday season.
I went to Michaels and purchased Celebrate It - Clear Glass Oranaments. I cut out a "Merry Christmas" from the Graphic 45 Christmas paper line and placed such inside the glass ornament with some gold, pearl, and read beads, flowers, and starts.
The outside of the glass is decorated with lace trim, I am roses leaves and flowers, and more Celebrate It items. I used to Graphic 45 pictures from the same line of paper mentioned before.
The last three months have been really hectic. However, I am so grateful for all the opportunities I've had to grow, learn, and continue to blossom. As our lives become more busy we learn to become more appreciative our moments. We learn to Celebrate Breaks. My Minds Eye - Lost & Found (Market Street and Rosy), and Wild Asparagus (The cutest thing-floral/yellow) paper was used develop this card. Spellbinder Dies- Classic Scalloped Ovals Small (largest die in pack) highlights the Greeting Farm Stamp. Prima - Black Say it in Pearls flourish and Avon Rose Romantique, I-rock rhinestones and Recollection flower was used to highlight card. I also inked around the card using Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Dusty Concord. Punched the first layer of paper with EK-Success - Jewel and backed the paper with Coordinations hunter green cardstock.
I used Making Memories magnetic stamps to create the title "Celebrate BREAKS".
Stampin-Up - Colored Pencils were used to color the Greeting Farm Stamps. I highlighted her hair with Stickles - Crystal.
Making the card was wonderful, I hope you enjoy making your own.
