I have done SOOO many pages over the last few days!!! Hubby worked all week, and I got to go to a crop last night AND today! I have been so inspired by all the NSD challenges, and I wanted to share a few of the pages that I have done.
This first up is for Scrapbook Circles Sketch challenge for their Anniversary Blog Hop. It is a Sketchy Thursdays sketch, and I ALWAYS love those!
I got some of these Studio Calico papers a while back, and haven't used them yet. They fit a color combo challenge at The (paper) Trail Makers blog, so I decided to use them up!
I misted the outside scalloped edge of the background paper with yellow and then stitched around the inner edge in black thread. The journaling cards pull out from behind the photos and I am going to print out and add my mom and dad's journaling.
These next two pages I designed for my next class at Scrappn' Savvy on May 17th. My last class we used some girly papers, and did a lot of "flowers" so I tried to stay away from that this time around. I wanted to use the Toy Box papers from Crate Paper, and found a "non-girly" photo of Charlotte to use...
I wanted to layer the papers so that they were not in straight lines, and then I cut them into a bracket shape and cut the bracket in half and placed part on the top and part on the bottom.
My original plan was to use three small photos on the bottom left and then create some stiching to make it look like little "bouncing" lines. But I decided to do one large stitched circle on the page instead to go with the theme. Also, I don't usually ink the edges of my papers, but I have been trying to do it a lot more and really love how it make the papers stand out.
I added a dab of navy blue from Crate Paper neighborhood, and some old alphas that I had in my stash, plus another star (staying away from flowers!!).
