Back from Michigan

I went to Michigan this past weekend. I had a blast. There was snow! It was 20 degrees the whole time I was there. I am happy to be back because I missed the springlike weather. So that is why there isn't a new technique for this week. I will be working on it tonight and hopefully have it posted by Sunday or Monday. Since I have posted two scrapbooking layouts I will try and do a card with a new technique. If there is something you would like to see drop me a comment.

Sell A Bration Simply Scrappin Kit

Here is another layout I did last week. I used the Simply Scrappin kit that was in the Sell A Bration brochure. I really liked the way it turned out. I normally don't cut a curve out of my paper because I am afraid of what it will look like but this worked pretty well. I just cut along the writing and swirls on the paper. I also used a white gel pen to make stems for my then I used the white gel pen to make stitching in the corners...trying to pull it all together. The pictures are from Thanksgiving (yes I know the page doesn't really scream Thanksgiving) but I like the look of the pictures..they already had a white border...with these colors. I don't think it matters that much that fall colors aren't used. What do you think?

Scrapbook Pages

So this is a layout I did last week. They were the first pages that I have done in a while. I cased the page on the left from the Friends and Flowers Simply Scrappin Kit and so I made the page on the right to match. I really liked the way these turned out. I love the kits...they make it so easy! I will probably use more kits right now until my scrapbooking abilities improve and then I will move onto more difficult pages.
