Hi friends! I'm late posting another layout but I actually have a legit reason for once; I've had no internet (phone company doing maintenance that caused drama's with our line). But happy to report we're back up and running and so here I am!
I've booted up the Cameo a few times this month and I'm enjoying playing with it again. It really is awesome little thing.
I created my own background pattern by repeating a hexagon shape and then cut it out of white cardstock. My initial thought was to put patterned paper behind but then I had all these white little hexagons lying about and I figured it might be fun to create layers using them! So I got out my trusty glue pen and stuck them together, anywhere from 2-8 high.
I used the August Main and Add-on for this one! Took a little time to stick those tiny little hexagons together (they're only about 1/2 inch'ish wide) but I'm super happy with how it ended up. It's one of those pages that is hard to capture on film but the different depths looks cool in person....atleast I think so hehe.
Those puffy and word stickers in the main - loooooove! I'm a sucker for the tiny little embellishments (perfect size for my pages) and these are perfect!
And that's it for now! Tomorrow is FRI-YAY! And it's doubly good for me this week because I'm starting 2 weeks holiday after tomorrow, YAYAYAYAYAY! Can.not.wait. No special plans to go anywhere, just looking forward to having 2 weeks off to re-charge and do whatever. (Like get up super early and go to Flour Market on Sunday, yayayyayay).
Hope your week has been a great one! Thanks for stopping by :) Em xo
Eek. June?! 2 weeks since my last blog post? Ahhh! Such a bad, bad blogger :)
I still can't believe it's June already! Time flies when you're having fun. Except I'm not having a whole heap of fun, just busy with work. Every time I think we're going to get a quiet patch; things go nuts and I neglect this blog (and my craft room..). I'd promise to do better but...you know ;)
The June release for Citrus Twist Kits has come and gone just like *that* (insert me clicking my fingers) and I'm playing catch up with my projects. I finished one page then got the bright idea I'd do a mini-album, because I can totally do a complete album in one day right?! Hahahaha. I know, I might have been a teeny bit ambitious. But good news is I finished it tonight so that's what I'm going to share first up ;)
I am quickly become a bit fan of these little albums, they're a heap of work (for me) but I love the extra dimension I can add to a book. Plus I can use multiple photo's from the same day and it doesn't look so weird, lol. This album, for example, is just a series of photo's I took of Zack on 10th October 2013. Hence the title of my album..
I used a little from almost all of the June kits I think on this. To be honest I made a mess of my desk and have mixed everything together so I'll have to go back and look at the kit photo's to figure out what came from where ;) (I did use chipboard, vellum and clear acetate from my stash though!)
Anyway I'll stop blabbing and just post the pics!
I love this little album already and already feel the need to make another one! They're so addictive. The papers in the kit this month were just perfect for this album. I'd actually printed one of these photo's out before the kits arrive (I try to plan ahead...sometimes atleast) but soon as I had the papers in my hand I knew I had to do more than just a layout! Add in the gorgeous die-cuts from the kits and it was a match made in heaven! I'm actually really happy how this one turned out :)
And that's it for now! I'll share another page over the weekend and I still have a couple projects on the go....and I'm planning to finish those this weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by; I really do appreciate you taking the time to do so!
Take care, Em xo
I am so excited to be part of the Citrus Twist Kits and The Cut Shoppe blog hop!
Hopefully you've found your way via Candace's blog and are ready for a little more inspiration from me :)
Ashley sent through the most gorgeous cut files for us to use and I knew straight off which I was using and exactly what page I was creating. Which do you think I went with? ;)
Oh yes, that butterfly was totally calling my name!
I've had a photo sitting in my tray for weeks looking for the right opportunity to scrap it and as soon as I saw the butterfly I knew I finally could.
I used a few pieces from the gorgeous May kits (which is still my favourite, I can't say it often enough, loooooove it) for this one as well.
I hand-cut the leaves and just ran them through my sewing machine in the centres so they looked more like leaves and not some random weird shape haha. The butterfly I cut out of white cardstock and it really is quite beautiful in person! Here's a couple close up shots that show it off a lot clearer.
The paper i used for the leaves is from the Pocket Life kit (6x6 Fancy Free) and I added a few little foam crosses and enamel dots (from Main and Add-on kits respectively). Just a couple embellies as I didn't want to add too much to detract from that butterfly!
For my background I went white on white (again, haha) with a few drops of Patina and Butter from Heidi Swapps ColorShine (the mini trio packs, which I picked up from the CTK store).
