Minimal use of paper, a great way to use leftover cut-aparts.
An Afternoon of Art
Love our local art museums so much, and I want to pass that on to my kiddos. <3
My Grandmother’s Sewing Basket
I lost my Grandma Dorothy just a couple of weeks before I scrapped this layout. It is such a sweet memento and was therapeutic to scrap. <3 Love you forever, Granny. Happy birthday in heaven.
DIY “Washi” Sentiments
There were some beautiful washi stickers I saw recently, however, they had been a kit exclusive and I was unable to buy them. So, counterfeit it is! I went through my stamps, selected sentiments that were similar to the stickers, then matched up ink and background stamps to most closely mimic the look of the stickers I liked.
I stamped my background stamps onto vellum to achieve the translucent effect that washi gives, then heat embossed the sentiments in white to echo the original style. I ran the strips through my Xyron sticker maker, and voila! ;) Some gorgeous washi style stickers, all from my stash. If you scroll back over the past week, you’ll see the layouts I used these on!
Month in Review–April 2015
I can’t keep up with these like I want to, but I love them when I do them! A collection of photos for each month, collected together in a cohesive album for the year. <3 Do you do anything similar?
Lots of fun diecutting on this one.
