By the time some of you read this, we will have entered into a brand new year - 2012. Wherever you are - a very Happy New Year to you all!
I am really so overwhelmed and infinitely grateful for the beautiful cards and generous gifts that I received from sweet sweet scrappy friends for Christmas. You know who you are ladies!! THANK YOU! Mwah mwah mwah!
Today is Friday and release day over at TCR, we have palette #91 with wonderfully vibrant and happy colours. How about Sunflower Yellow, Poppy Red, Powder Blue and Sunny Orange!
I won't be longwinded, here is my page:
After having made quite a few multi dimensional pages and a substantial number of Christmas cards for the passed few months, I felt like creating something one-dimensional and flat for a change. When I flipped through these October Afternoon papers, I just fell for the cute little old-fashioned country houses and went from there.
There is a Swedish lady who has the most fantastic blog where she writes about her ancestors and their lives. Wonderful research done, colourful encounters with people long gone, and fantastic photos that tell lots of stories too. This photo is from her blog and shows her grandmother and her grandmother's brother sometimes 1910-ish or so.
And then a card for a very special and dear friend.
A little package made from a 20 x 20 cm square doily.
Unwrapping the layers and revealing the card itself.
The doily and the papers are from the Australian online store Meg's Garden which you can find HERE
Meg's Garden is the January sponsor of The Color Room and each week during the month of January, one of their DT girls will be featured with the layout that she has made for that specific palette. The DT of The Color Room will also be showing what we have created with products from Meg's Garden.
Stickles in Star Dust here and there gives a lovely shimmer.
And here you can see the full card with its doily front.
Only a week left to 6 January and the launch of CSI - Color, Stories, Inspiration
The excitement is building up, soon soon soon ... Even before we have gone live, members are increasing in number by every day. The news is spreading in blogland! and the fabulous thing is, I'm on the DT of this new awesome challenge site owned and run by the one and fabulously only Debbi Tehrani.
The challenges consist of three parts: colours, inspiration, and journalling (that's the story). Plenty to set your mojo on fire in other words!
For those of you who cannot wait, here's a top secret sneak preview of our first challenge:
I will remember 2011 as the year when I made so many wonderful scrappy friends throughout the whole wide world. Thank you ladies for your loving support, steadfast encouragement, many giggles, invaluable personal chats, and so many tips and tricks on how to. Simply - thank you for being you!
Hello 2012 - watch out, here we come!
