Recent Projects

For this LO (Time Flies When You're Having Fun), I used then (July 2005) and now (June 2008) pics of D at the same park. Looing at these photos together makes me smile- I can really see how much he's grown in 3 years!

I also created this LO as part of the round robin lift challenge at scrap-diner. I lifted Leah.

My attempt at an uber masculine layout! Love all of the different textures: I distressed the edges, painted the back of the bubble wrap white and inked the front black. I used an urban chipboard font, metal mesh, felt, screw brads, and twine.
The front of this card is transparent- I stamped the sentiment inside of the and the birds on the outside of the transparency.

I think I'm going to use this on a BOM LO- instead of a card, it can serve to hide journaling.

just trying something different and simple

I'm teaching this at my LSS next month- I love cutwork, but most of the students don't, so we'll see how many turnout. I sometimes hear "do I have to cut this out?" My response- "if you want it to look like this, then yes!"

I dabbed silver paint around the edge and then added platinum stickles for a frosted look.

I cut HS bling strips to add to the flourishes. I then sprayed the big paper flowers with candy apple red glimmer mist, topped with punched flowers are added a dab of platinum stickles to the centers.
TFL!
