Create magazine, a FREE (yes! free!) online magazine published by Scrapbook Generations has some of the most inspirational scrapbooking and cardmaking content I have come across! There are sketches, articles, layouts galore, a tutorial and all kinds of crafting goodness. A few weeks ago the June issue with released along with two of my layouts.
First up, on pages 198-199 is a double page spread I created using vellum and Bella Blvd based on amazing two page sketch.
Michael replaced my broken waterproof camera for me recently and we got some really fun pictures while at Aquatica for Spring Break. The colors were perfect with these Bella Blvd papers that I mixed and matched across old and new collections - as I do!
A modified cut file cut using my Silhouette made the perfect waves for us to frolic and swim amongst!
A mix of patterned paper and washi make for fun banners at the top of your page.
And another two page spread can be found on pages 218-219 that I created based on the one page sketch. When you have more photos than the sketch calls for but like the sketch, just S T R E T C H it out! LOL!
This Pebbles collection, Birthday Wishes, is RIGHT up my alley! Those of you who know me and follow my work know that bright colors are what I create with best. THIS was designed for me! And for this birthday girl! I do believe this young lady has had many birthday layouts featured on the blog lately. Well here's another to accompany the collection!
Twinery bakers twine is the perfect compliment to these balloons! The pop of black grounds all the color a bit as well.
Some more Twinery twine on the button that comes from the collection which I used to dress up the pennant. Love those little confetti like stars! So festive!
Oh! the things one can do with foam adhesive! And stickles! Each of the candles (there are seven for her seventh birthday!) has a dab of Stickles to make the flames sparkle, as they did on her cake!
Now to do something with all the pictures from this years birthday!! We had a friends party this year and weren't at home. It's tougher to get pictures of kids you aren't all that familiar with and in lightening you don't really now. But they did turn out! And the girls had a good time, that's the most important part!
