Today the first year students are facing the last day of the dreadful 3-day exam I faced last year: I feel like this year has flown by so fast!
Anyway, I have a couple projects from the weekend that I haven’t shown yet. First off, a little hybrid project that made my husband very happy.
He loves to taste wine so when I saw this little blue notebook for sale, I knew I had to pretty it up for him to write his tasting notes. 🙂 I made a label to cover the embossed writing “journal”:
I also made a 2-sided bookmark with the 100 point wine rating system. I’m so happy that he’s using it and loves it! 🙂
Of course, I had just the right kit for this project, a collab by Juno Designs and Julie Marie Designs, The Good Life:
The colors of this kit are gorgeous and went perfectly with the blue notebook. Plus, the grape and bottle elements were just what I needed to characterize the notebook!
I also have a page to share, done for the Everyday Magic challenge. We had to scrap about our favorite little place to eat (not the fancy place for special occasions), so I just had to go with Red Lobster! 🙂 DH and I go pretty often, and when my parents come to visit it’s a set date! 😉
I also have some Project 365 pages to share, but since I’m not caught up yet I guess I’ll show them all together when I do catch up. Hopefully, by the end of the week – although I do have a busy week scheduled, with little or no scrapping time..!
Jill of Juno Designs has a new kit out and it’s the cutest kit ever!!!!!!
And it works out just perfectly that when DH came home last Friday after being gone all week, he brought home a delicious chocolate cake:
Pure heaven! 😉
There’s lots of new gorgeous kits out today at ScrapMatters; here’s the one I picked up, by ScrapMuss Designs:
It’s such a romantic kit! I wanted to scrap pictures of DH and me, but didn’t have any (those are always the first to get scrapped! 😉 ) so last night we took some pictures. And since there was no special occasion, I just scrapped a page about a normal evening at our house. 😉
I did this for the Roadmap to Scrap challenge at SM, and these were the instructions:
- Use a template with an ODD number of photos.
- Include at least 2 patterned papers.
- Please use at least 3 out of the 5 following items: buttons, ribbons, staples, frames, journal strips or tags.
- Show me some shapes that aren’t squares, rectangles or circles.
- Add something blue to your page.
- Place something on your page that’s obviously upside down. It could be a photo, an element, anything, just be sure we can tell it’s not in it’s original and upright position.
- Use an alpha and a font for your title.
- Now select everything on your page except the background paper, and shrink it at least 10%.
I have another page to show off, for the Grand Theft LO challenge:
I’m not so sure I like the selective coloring on the pic.. I don’t know, I just never seem to like b/w picture as much as I like the color version!
I don’t know how the weekend flew by so fast! I didn’t really do anything special, and I didn’t get many pages scrapped either!
Here’s one that I’m very happy about:
using In the Summer Time by Juno Designs:
I really love those bright colors!!
I have a few more pages to share from this weekend.
I did a 2-pager for the new My Story Matters challenge at ScrapMatters, about summertime as a child. I use the fun and pretty new kit by Jeni Hopewell, Happy, Happy Birthday!
I scrapped this using pictures from my first summer, because as a child all my summers were spent in the same locations and I plan to make more pages with pictures from later years.
I also started playing with a gorgeous kit by Juno Designs, The Good Life:
and here’s what I created:
Finally, but I cannot share this, I did a hybrid project I’m very proud of. I cannot share it because it’s for the first challenge I’m hosting at ScrapMatters, and it’s starting on the 23rd. I cannot wait! 😉
July has arrived, so this means that for the next 2 months, I’m guest CT for Juno Designs! 😉
