Good Evening (here in the UK, anyway)... I hope you're having a fab day and looking forward to a wonderful weekend.
I'd like to share a couple of things with you today, firstly a scrapbook layout I did following a sketch and secondly a little card I whipped up just now.
The sketch layout is from LETS GET SKETCHY, the DT there... are fabulous! The sketch is...
My Uncle Roy with his beautiful Filipino bride.
I used a variety of bits from my stash for this layout - the background paper is from AMERICAN CRAFTS AMY TANGERINE 'Yes, Please' collection, the other papers are from FIRST EDITION 'Dreamcatcher; DOCRAFTS FOREVER FRIENDS 'Kraft Notes'. I also found some heart vellum (both for a mat and as the banners at the top of the page, which are held in place with a couple of paper clips); also I embossed (then sanded back) a piece of CORE'DINATIONS 'Black Magic' in teal. For embellishment, I used some mists (splattered here and there), a doily and a large fabric flower by TERESA COLLINS 'Fabrications' collection. I am 'well pleased' with how this turned out and I will be placing it in a 12x12 page protector and putting it in my family album. Thanks LETS GET SKETCHY for the inspiration!
Now for my card...
Just a quick little number I knocked up from the bits and pieces I had floating around on my craft desk! The vellum background is the same as I used with the layout above, except I punched the corners with a MARTHA STEWART punch. The border strip and gems are VERY old finds from the local £ shop, as are the black doily shapes and flower strips. The rosette and sentiment are both from the AMERICAN CRAFTS AMY TANGERINE 'Yes, Please' collection. 5 minute card - whoop, whoop!
