Birthday Card

I prepared a birthday card for my Mom today and it turned out super cute! 🙂
I used Cutieful Doodleful Youville by Polka Dot Plum and Amy Sumrall to prepare the card:
then I simply printed it, cut it out and mod podged it for finish. I gave diagonal strokes. 🙂
Finally, glued it to a blank 5×7 card with Mod Podge. Et voila’!
I used normal paper and of course when I mod podged it the color did bleed a little, but it didn’t bother me because it actually made the background paper pinkier. 🙂
It think it turned out really cute!! When the picture looks better than the digital version, you definitely know your hybrid project was a hit! 😉
Yep, I took these pretty pictures in our light tent, albeit still with our living room lamp and not the really nice one we bought for the tent – still need to buy a lamp holder for that! 🙂

Week 9

I’m finally catching up with my Project 365 LOs! These past couple weeks I haven’t been in the mood of scrapping them, but I hope to get them all done today. 🙂

I used the super fun Cutieful Doodleful Youville by Polka Dot Plum and Amy Sumrall. I love those pinks!!

Last Valentine’s Day Hunt LO

Tonight I scrapped the last LO about the hunt I organized for DH on Valentine’s Day. (I know, I have yet to take pictures of the house album I gave him and post them, but we have to buy a good lamp for our light tent before I can do that.)

I really love how this LO turned out!! The shadows look unexpectedly great on that dark background!

I’m not sure that the title of the LO, Last Stop, is not mixed up with the paper strip that says “I Love You”.. But I don’t really care if it does, I just liked the look of it all together and I’m not going to change that paper strip! 🙂

TWO Lucky Kits by Polka Dot Plum

Amy and Lauren have been busy and created TWO new mini-kits, in the stores today!
Pot O’ Gold is exclusive to ScrapOrchard,

while Irish Jig is exclusive to Sunshine Studio Scraps!

Whether you’re Irish or not, whether you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day or not, I’m sure these kits can work for scrapping many of your pictures: they’re so versatile!

My Baptism – A Couple More LOs

I made two more LOs with pictures from my baptism. These pictures are so precious I couldn’t leave them out so I ended up scrapping them all! 🙂

Flower Girl by Angie Kovacs and Megan Turnidge

I was 3 months old and the pictures depict me with my parents, maternal grandparents, paternal grandmother and maternal great-grandmother (only in the next LO).
The next page I did for a Roadmap to Scrap challenge at ScrapMatters, following these instructions:

  1. Choose at least 2 photos
  2. Your background must be a photo; feel free to blend it with a paper or alter it in any way
  3. Your main pic must have a cluster of elements next to it
  4. Add at least 4 circles
  5. Include at least one doodle or hand-drawn element
  6. Choose at least three ribbons
  7. Be creative with your date–no fonts!
  8. Use an alpha for your title

I can’t wait for the next My Story Matters challenge, coming next Sunday!

My Story Matters #3 – My Hometown

I’m all caught up with the My Story Matters challenges over at ScrapMatters now. Tonight I did a page about my hometown:

I’m so glad my parents have been scanning all my baby pictures lately, it’s so precious to see them!

Coming Soon…

The PDP girls did it again!! They have a new kit coming soon, and I know you’ll love it! Here’s a little sneak peek:

The colors are super funky and the doodles are super cute!
The kit is a collab with Amy Sumrall and will be in the shops Friday. I’ll be back then to post previews and links to the stores. 🙂
I bet this kit will be perfect to scrap a few pictures I have left from Valentine’s Day! In the meantime, I used another great kit by Amy and Lauren (probably my favorite ever), We Give Thanks, to complete another page about the Valentine’s Day hunt. 🙂

But I have more great news: the template I used for this LO was created by a fellow CT member, Amy, and is avaliable on the CT blog! Go get it right away! 🙂

Cute Bird

I took a few pictures of this cute bird this morning, and I wanted to do a page with it. It was soooo cute! 🙂

So, DH and I went to see Twilight (at the $1 theater!! yaaay!) yesterday night. We’d been putting it off because we were wary.. how could you possibly make a good movie out of such a great book? Well, no big surprise – we weren’t impressed. It did make me want to re-read (again!) the book, though. 🙂
I’m about to upload the next page about our Valentine’s Day hunt. 🙂
