I am too late to link up to this sketch but I like it so much that I had to use it anyway! I also came across this colour challenge so I merged them together and created a layout using this photo of Ryan and Evan on the first day back to school this September.
Here is the colour palette that I chose from Megan's Pinterest board. I loved the shades of green and blue and a bit of yellow.
Here is my layout. I think it turned out pretty cute!
I also used some of my older supplies and used my Cameo. Yay me!!
I played along with a new challenge called "Scrappy Friends Challenges". Very cool because basically you could join in on 1, 2 or all 3 challenges.
Well I combined all 3 to create my layout because I enjoyed REALLY giving myself a triple challenge..lol!
So first I will share my layout of Ryan helping me blow out my birthday candle.
Everything is from the Teresa Collins "stationery noted" collection except:
Wood Veneer: Fancy Pants, Studio Calico
Mist: Heidi Swapp
So the first challenge was to use this sketch by Brenda.
The second challenge was by Kristi to use dots and chevrons. My dots are actually on my chevrons....lol!
The third challenge by Rochelle was to create a layout about your family or someone in your family.
I've been very blessed to get to know Tracey through our mutual love of paper crafting. We were on a DT together many moons ago and just re-connected about 6 months or so ago while on the DT for Dynamic Duos.
When Joyce asked me if I would like to participate in a birthday celebration for Tracey I immediately answered.....YES!!!
Tracey is one of the nicest women that I have had the pleasure of meeting. Not in person (wish that could happen some day) but on line as we shared and created together.
Tracey is kind, dedicated, compassionate, so giving of herself and always there with compliments and praise to others and Tracey is one AWESOME TALENTED CRAFTER!!!!!
Her creations always inspire me. If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing her gorgeous cards please go check out her blog right now!!
So Tracey my friend I wish you a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY and I card I made. (inspired by Kristina Werner)
Head over to Joyce's blog to see who else is joining in to wish Tracey a Happy Birthday.
Well friends this will be my last post for Dynamic Duos as part of their DT. Boo hoo. :( It's been such a pleasure meeting and creating with Lesley and Anne Marie and all of the DT but our term has come to an end.
I know that the new DT will be fabulous and will surely inspire us all.
The Duo this week is Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum. I figured that these colours would allow me to sneak in another Halloween card before the 31st.
I can't believe it's Saturday already but it is and that means that it's time for the next Dynamic Duo!
This week we have Primrose Petals and Blushing Bride for you.
Yes it is Monochromatic week.
Stamp: Casual Fridays
Journal Card: Becky Fleck
Embossing folder: Provocraft
The journal card that I stamped my sentiment on was from a big box of assorted Project Life cards by Becky Fleck that I got for an awesome price at Michaels and even though I'm not doing Project Life these cards will come in so handy for many cards and layouts.
This week at Dynamic Duos we have Basic Black paired with Crumb Cake. We also have a dessert option....and who doesn't love dessert....of adding wet embossing to your project!
I have really wanted to try out the trendy Chalkboard technique since this seems to be so hot right now and when I saw that part of the Duo was black.....well....this was the perfect opportunity to give it a go.
This also allowed me to use the dessert option. I love dessert...lol!
Other: embossing powder, chalk, Versamark
I took a piece of chalk and rubbed it over the black cardstock and wiped the excess off with a paper towel.
I stamped my images with Versamark and embossed with white powder.....there's my dessert!
Then I re-stamped with white ink just off setting the image.
With my Uniball signo pen I drew a border around the edges.
Voila!!! There is my chalkboard technique!
I also have a Christmas card done too. Woot woot!!
So happy that I was able to complete another Christmas card! Playing along with the latest challenge at Merry Monday and also Challenge # 136 at The Kraft Journal gave me the inspiration to get my card done.
