Finally - last day of work before blissful summer freedom! Having a late start to the day and am working from home yay!
As I mentioned in my previous post, I absolutely adored TCR's palette #64 but got seriously stuck with my mojo deserting me. Good thing was I got to play just for fun making the other two pages. Anyhow, as I got home from work yesterday evening, our cats had pushed down some papers that I had sitting our kitchen table onto the floor. As soon as I saw what had come up on top my mojo banged me on my head and demanded some action. I normally NEVER have any energy left to scrap during weekdays but now I got such an extra energy boost from nowhere that dear hubbs and cats just stared at me in wonder. They all quietly retreated to the family room ..
Here is what my frenzied tearing, cutting and pasting resulted in after an hour (seriously no joking, I NEVER produce anything in less than 4 hours!!):
I bought this floral Glitz paper just because it is so pretty, had no project in mind at the time.
Isn't the Imaginarium Design chippie title just the yummiest?! their products are out of this world gorgeous! I started by dabbing it entirely in Sky Blue. Then misting it with TA chalboard Cornflower. Traced some Shimmerz Blingz in December Sky around the edges and finished off with Stickles Diamond. The pearly shimmery effect is divine IRL, as always nothing of it photographs any good.
I've placed an order with them for some more of their amazing lovelies, will start stalking the postie next week. Absolutely mind boggling stuff! If you haven't checked them out before, please do!! You find their BLOG if you click HERE and their webshop if you click HERE
The flowers and leaves are snipped off from a bouquet of silk summer blooms that I've had for ages; buttercups and forget-me-nots - what can be more summery than that! The duckies are cut-out from October Afternoon 5&Dime and the resin frame is from my stash. Some mini Basic Grey buttons, and Maya Road trinket pins.
The dotted yellow&white pp is from K&Co Water Color Bouquet, the sky blue is from Martha Stewart Lace & Doilies, the music sheet is an old MME, the red&white dotted is Crate, the soft floral to the far left and right is and old K&Co. The cherries I cut out from the K&Co Flora & Fauna. A snippet of left over lace, the fabric brad is from Danish Tilda, the small white doily and the large yellow one at the top are bought from Leanne Pearce's Chip Chop Shop on Etsy that you will find HERE
Just had to show you a close up of the girls!
Both TCR and CCG released their new palettes this morning, CCG using the same one that they had for their DT call last week;
This week's Designer Challenge: Focus on Style - Retro, Shabby or Heritage. What is your style? Bring it on!!! Use a vintage design in your projects (layouts or cards) this week.
*DRUM ROLL* I am truly happy to see soooo many familiar names on the list of CCG's new DT members, so many awesomely talented ladies!
