I hand cut the flowers on this first one so they are a little wonky but I rather like them less uniform...and finally used the jumbo bazzill brads I have had for quite a while!
I have impressed myself on this next layout...lol...I hand cut this frame....I just marked the corners then cut out the middle and then stared cutting a scalloped edge! I figured if it didn't work I could just throw it out! BUT it worked! Confidence is the key...just start cutting! And I used all my favs on this page...Heidi Swapp letters and decorative tape, Scenic Route paper and word strips! The frame was actually pretty straight before I stuck it on...it doesn't seem to look so bad in real life...but oh well! I tried to take it off and straighten it but I think it was stretching so gave up!
And then this one was supposed to have felt but doesn't....lol..what I had in mind didn't work so I did something else...back to stitching and photo corners! This is E making her first letter to Ben!
This last one has the felt circles I cut for the layout above but didn't use... this page was inspired by a recent layout of Kim Archer's...she had no patterned paper and circles on hers...rather like the effect I have here with the felt and the stitching...
So that is it for layouts for the weekend...just realised they are all pink and blue layouts!!
I have been looking at Carole Janson's blog and boy does she do some amazing stuff...such detail...makes my pages look so plain! She must have incredible patience...I cut out one or two flowers and think I am doing well!!!
Other than scrapping E and I went to a birthday party yesterday, had her cousins over to play this morning and then went to see Alli and family for a very yummy roast dinner...scrumptious!! So a good weekend....Anyway hope you have had a fabulous weekend - Lissy
