Here we are at day 2 of my own scrapbooking challenge…“to complete an unfinished layout or create a new one from scratch every day for the next 30 days”. Check out this first post here to get some more information on my children’s scrapbooks *day one*
Today I’ve simply added dates to a layout that was completed (fun fact – this is a redo layout, I hated the first one I had done). I know I’m only sharing 3 of my 4 kids here, my son’s page is quite different, I’ll be back with that one tomorrow.
These pages basically do use lots of Stampin’ Up! items but aside from the Very Vanilla and Early Espresso cardstock they are all retired 🙁
A friend of mine recently treated herself to a new craft desk (here’s the desk she chose, isn’t it lovely!)
I wanted to make her a little something to celebrate having a beautiful new place to craft, I hope you get the idea, it did look a look better in real life.
The little vase was from IKEA. The ribbon is the chevron one we had that has since retired. The paper is the Designer Series Paper called “Typeset” which is also retired. I absolutely loved these flower dies from the Bouquet Bigz Die (you guessed it also retired). I added some butterflies (cut with the thinlits in the product list). Everything is either glued onto florist wire or skewer sticks. The little tag has been stamped and heat set with white embossing powder.
I recently ran a class with these beautiful flowers….
The bag was just a simple one from a discount store, it doesn’t take much to make it really pop. Hot glue is your friend when putting together these flowers. You will find a silicone mat makes it so much easier too. This video really helped me.
