International Scrapbook Month is still going on at Let's Scrap. There are still so many challenges to play! Tonight I finished a page for Challenge #2 where the challenge is to try a different scrapping style. I chose to go Shabby Chic. My style doesn't normally lean in this direction. I think I'm more Classic or Cutesy.
So here is my page:
At Let's Scrap you must use a Let's Scrap layout (which I love!). So here's my sketch-created by Cheri O'Neill for Sept, 9, 2009. Scroll down, and I'll show you some highlights!
I used these for the circle. I find they work best with a small glue dot. I thought I was going to use the ones with print on them and then I changed my mind--for the better :)
Here is the gold candi on the paper. The Candis are like paper versions of brads and no brad tails. I got them from the Scrapbook Expo.
I have had this bundle of rhododendrons forever. I have a pair of wire cutters that I used to cut some of the plastic center off and then I used a bigger glue dot to adhere the flowers to the page. I used glue dots to glue the candis to the centers.
All of the pearls are from Want2Scrap.
I used Wow Embossing powder for Family. Wow is right. It's so thick! Can't wait to use it some more. The embossing powder and pearls are both from the Expo. Yay-I'm using new stuff :) Oh and this square that Family is stamped on is also from there. I got it in a pack of die-cuts from The Girls' Paperie. I distressed this square using Blue Jeans and Walnut Ink from Rangers/Tim Holtz's Distress Inks.
The blue pattern paper is Anne Griffin and the vintage flower paper is from K&C company. The background paper-I'll be honest-I have no idea. I bought an assorted pack of paper a couple of years ago from the Scrapbook Expo and threw away the label. Who knew I would need that info for my blog? ;) If you know what brand it is let me know! Until next time my friends...what's your Scrapbook style?
