Scrapping Recipe Challenge #22

It's Scrapping Recipe Challenge day at Sketches! {by Tamara}, and this is my layout using Scrapping Recipe Challenge #22. Be sure to check out what the other design team members created using this awesome recipe!


The recipe this week was to use the following on a card or a layout:
  • 1-2 designer papers
    embossing (dry or wet)
    the use of a charm as an embellishment
If you use this recipe, be sure to link it back to the Tamara's site! I really loved this recipe, because I heat embossed, and it was so much fun getting out my heat gun! I forgot how fun and amazing heat embossing is! I used Basic Grey Motifica papers, tags, and alphabet stickers. I used my threading water punch, Lil' Davis chipboard letters for the main title, and a Stampin' Up stamp for the "genuine article" circular image under the title. I cut the image out with my Coluzzle. The large flower and the small flower are also from a Stampin' Up set, and like I mentioned, I heat embossed them. I used copper embossing powder, and I then detail cut them and attached them to my page with brads. At the bottom of one of the photos, I added a Doodlebug plastic charm that says "together". I'm THRILLED with the way this page turned out! I love it!

I slept in a little today, because the girls do not have school. It was awesome getting some extra sleep! I'm off to shower and then VOTE! I hope the line isn't too long!! I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Hi, Carol:

I love your blog. I've been reading it for several months now, and love to look at your cards and pages. I'm an avid scrapbooker, also, and I'm always looking for new ideas.

I also enjoy writing, and thanks to you and several others, I started my own blog a couple of weeks ago. Another creative release! I'd love for you to stop by some time if you're not too busy, and check it out.

Thanks again for all the good ideas.

Belinda
