I went to the Gadget Girls 10th Anniversary Mega Crop in Truro, Nova Scotia back in October 2015, and actually SCRAPBOOKED! I know, crazy, right? But it’s true! I actually prepared early and picked out pictures and coordinated paper, the works! So I am going to show you some of my creations!
This year’s Crafty Crew 🙂
First up is my Princess Tiana layout. This is a shot taken by my Dad on my wedding day. My parents have fabulous neighbours with beautiful gardens in their backyard, and Brenda (one of said neighbours) offered up her awesome frog for a picture! It’s still one of my favourites!
The Tiana paper came from a Disney Paper Pad by EK Success . The purple and green cardstock are both American Crafts brand. Though they don’t sell the package I used anymore, it was similar to this. The Ribbon is SO pretty in person, the picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s by May Arts.
I created the sentiment using my Laser printer and the new Minc Foil Applicator. This machine is SO easy to use and the foil colours are amazing! I used the Purple for my project. I also used some dollar store gems and Recollections paper flowers, sequins and brads for accents.
I’m really happy with how this turned out, and even happier that this coming August will be my 10th wedding anniversary to my prince 🙂
Stay Crafty, my friends!
Happy September, lovelies! As you may have noticed I took some time off for the summer, but I’m back at it now! I’d like to say I was super crafty and productive, but I wasn’t at all. Not even a little bit lol
I did, however, go to my friend’s cottage for a weekend and I actually tried my hand at layouts. I wanted to share with you one of the layouts I did. I used Bo Bunny’s Woodland Winter collection. It is one I’ve been hoarding for a while now, and I finally dug out some pictures that I felt worked well with it.
These shots were taken at a local park on Oscar’s first New Year’s Day in 2013. It was beautiful and the snow was perfect, and we had such a great time.
I used a little trick taught to me by friend Tracy (aka ScrappyChick101) for the outer border. The burlap and lace ribbon was SO much fun to use! I bought it a little while ago at Michael’s, and was just waiting for the perfect project to come along to use it with.
I edged all my paper with Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate Ink, and used my Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending Tool to achieve the perfect aged look.
This ‘A Snowy Day’ title sticker is from the cardstock sticker sheet that came with the collection kit.
The small heart with pawprint diecut is a Die-namics die by My Favorite Things called Pet Accents.
The snowflakes are wood veneers (I believe they are Studio Calico) that I coloured with Viva Decor Inka Gold in Champagne.
I hope you enjoyed this creation as much as I enjoyed making it! I’m really proud of it as it’s the first one I did from my own head (like, not from a kit). I’m looking forward to Gadget Girls Fall Mega Crop coming up in a few weeks, where I’ll hopefully be working on more layouts! What have you been working on? How was your summer? Let me know in the comments!
Have a wonderful day!
