I hope you all had fun during our sneak peeks last week! I was able to get together with some of my friends this weekend for a much-needed scrap night. One of my new years resolutions is that I WILL keep up on my scrapbooking this year!
So...I have a few pages to show you! The first page is my son's Kindergarten photograph, and I paired it with our new School Days stamp set. So cute! We've been getting a lot of positive comments from teachers on this new set and that makes me happy. I have several teachers in my family and this will be their next birthday gift.
Here are a few details that I love about this page...
I stamped a line of images from the School Days set, and also the school bus from our new Things That Go set.
This is my favorite little part about this page...the chalkboard. Doesn't it look like the A+++ was really written in chalk? I colored in the background of the chalkboard with a dark grey Copic Marker, and then I stamped the A+++ on it with opaque white ink. It wasn't quite dark enough so I very lightly filled it in with a white gel pen, but left the edges soft (like chalk.) The big chipboard letter "k" stands for Kindergarten, of course!
I also did some really cute pages for my daughter with some new papers and embellishments from October Afternoon. All this stuff was part of a "Kit of the Month" club I belong to at my local scrapbooking store, Hip 2B Square. It's great because the products are always new and beautiful and it helps me keep my goal of scrapbooking more this year! And I always have a lot of really great scraps for cardmaking! (In fact, if you were watching our sneak peeks you may recognize some of this paper from my Tutti Fruity samples...)
I colored the chipboard flower with Copic Markers. It worked beautifully!
