Hi crafty friends!! Hope you're all enjoying your holiday weekend!! We're not doing much... Actually, yesterday the girls and I spent a lot of time in my craft room! You can imagine what it looked like post crafting between a 4 yr old, 2 yr old, and of course myself... Not pretty! :)
I really wanted to come up with a project for the first challenge over at 3 Girl Jam. The theme this week is butterflies and bows. I'm still trying to get caught up on layouts before the new baby comes... I don't think it's going to happen!!! I think I may need to keep weeding out photos. :(
These pictures have been in my 'to scrap' pile for a while and when I picked up the Today, Tomorrow, Forever stack (by Recollections) from Michaels, I knew it would be perfect for this layout. I have to say I think it's my favorite stack EVER. I have no doubt I will use every sheet in the stack, and maybe even have to buy a second!!
I got to play with Spellbinders for the very first time yesterday! I have been eyeing them up for a while and when Ginger Snap Scraps had everything in their store on sale for 40% off, I jumped on a couple sets!! So in love with them because they are so convenient! Now I can give my Big Shot some exercise since it's been collecting dust since I bought it almost a year ago!
The bow shown above is made by using some 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon along with my 3 Girl Jam bowmaker. The sentiment came from the Pink By Design set Grandparents. I used the Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, which I also picked up cheap at Ginger Snap Scraps to do some inking.
The title for the page was cut by my Cameo. I LOVE that I can cut almost anything so precisely!!! It's not 100% perfect, but soooooo much better than a Cricut could ever do!! I used some more 3 Girl Jam ribbon, along with some lace I picked up at a thrift store. The pewter heart is from Wal-Mart jewelry section and tied with some hemp.
I used a saying from the All in the Family set from Pink By Design and stamped each line in the sentiment separately to make three individual banners. I inked them with the same Victorian Velvet Distress Ink and added a button with some hemp tied in it.
That's it!! :) I have some really fun things to share with you this week so make sure to come back soon!!! I will be a Guest Designer over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and I am super excited!! :)
