I worked with the "A Night in the City" kit this month. Here are two layouts from me...
I hand cut the flowers from a sheet of the Heather Bailey paper in the kit. I cut a ton of them out and then layered them with pop dots to create a very cool 3-D effect!
This layout features the Balzer Designs City Skyline stamp! Woo Hoo! I used a mask to layer the two colors of ink. And I made some paper ribbon and crumpled it across the bottom of the layout. The title is hand cut and the journaling is in my handwriting!
And here is a mini book...
- All the horizontal photos are 4x6 and constitute a full page. They each have one word written in stickers and the rest of the description in white pen.
- All of the vertical photos are 4x3. They are on a page with a piece of blue cardstock (lightly distressed with gesso) with journaling, a strip of patterned paper, a doodle, and a hand cut embellishment.
I love how it looks so random, but actually follows a very simple set of rules, which brings the whole book together nicely.
This is my cousin, Emily. She's *gorgeous* and very sweet. I was happy to make this adorable frame using chipboard, felt, and pop dots. Easy, attractive, and took about 10 minutes!
There's still time to pop into the K&P classroom and take my mini book class: What I Like About You. It's only $10!
Finally, did you notice the slight blog re-design? I put my classes into a photo album - easier to digest - and separated my scrapbooking layouts into digital and paper/hybrid albums. I also updated my Photo A Day album through June. Whew. I'm exhausted...
