April 10 2011 Scrap~tures Reveal....

Scrap~tures April Scrapbook Kit... Consisted of MME Papers line Stella and Rose I have to say that I have always been a fan of the texture and weight of MME papers. The patterns of the papers are super fun, small and subtle enough that they don't over-power the photos. I found that it all works perfectly with every type of photos from Black and White to Colour.And that is what I did. I created this layout of Kurt using Black and white photos.I took a little bit more of an artsy step (or Jump for me then normal) with this layout and cut the paper and then pieced it together with ribbon and eyelets. I loved the look of the "Numbers Paper" the blue side and was super excited to use it and of course the title block "so much more DELIGHTFUL than you know" worked perfectly for my title with these photos.

For my next layout...I created this layout "balloons belong in church" with the Exclusive Sketch for Kit subscribers only, Created my Kristine Davidson. The Sweet Stripe paper worked well with my photo of Kurt holding his Balloon at the Thinking Day Service. I also added to the embellishment a stamped image from one of the doilies in the stamp set provided with the kit. The ribbon was part of an old Scrap~tures kit that I had left over and added some bright glittery thickers. (thanks Shannon I love them)

Using the Scrap~tures card kit, I created this layout using the Scrapbook and Cards Today April Calendar Sketch I have to admit (BLUSHING) that this was my first attempt at using Copics and I am hooked... I was shocked at how bright the colours are. I also went a few steps further and cut out some of the petals and added some Liquid applique for the centre of the flower...but that is not all I also added some rock candy crackle paint to make the flower shine and crackle...I loved the saying A mother’s love does not divide between her children it multiplies. And of course mine is X2

Here is a closer view of the flower.... I am actually pleased with the way that it turned out

Check out the Scrap~tures store if you are interested... only 1 more scrapbook kit and 3 more card kits left as of get them while you still can....

Thanks for stopping by.... and stay tuned next weekend... Scrap~tures is having an on line crop with lots of challenges...and prizes.. and of course a blog hop....hope to see you there...
