My daughters first thanksgiving with her "Puppa" in 2008, she was just a couple of weeks old in this photo and it is a very precious photo to me. This is my husbands grandfather and he has been very ill this past year so I have been trying to cherish every memory and moment made with him! New Making Memories Noteworthy paper and Creative Imaginations Die-Cut paper.
This cool little project was inspired by a scrapbook.com forum challenge where you use 1X1 pieces of paper as your base and the possibilities are limitless! I chose butterflies as I do for a lot of things lol. I think I will put these is a simple antiqued white frame and hang it in my daughters room.
This was from a challenge on the scrapbook.com forums. We don't often scrap ourselves but how great will one of these layouts be for our children to look back on? Our task was to scrap something that made us unique and I chose my green eyes! I used lots of Daisy D's paper and Marah Johnson flower brads. I painted on some couregated cardboard and used it as a stamp for a background to lay my photo on. I stamped my own frame onto a transparancy Added some prima paper and prima fancy flowers and used some Tim Holtz inks. Again I used Basic Grey Mellow Letter Stickers.
My daughter Destiny turning 3! The circle is cut from making memoris paper and the butterflies are traced from Heidi Swapp ghost butterflies and cut from the same making memories line of papers. I painted some Basic Grey Mellow stickers pink and used numbers from a colorbok chipboard pack. And of course prima flowers and say it in crystals!
This Layout is one of the first ones that I was proud of! This is my daughter Destiny at a friends wedding in 2004. Mostly Jenni Bowlin papers. The butterflies are all hand drawn and cut and inked with colorbox cat eye chalks. I used Fiskars templates to make my frame and crackle painted the title! Thank you so much for taking a look!
I love to create intricate pieces of paper art and have decided to share my techniques and steps with all of you if you are interested! I will probably often just add in family updates as well to show off my three pride and joys! I hope you will join me! To start off I will add some archives of my work.
