I made this layout for Waleska's grid challenge on the SC blog; I love grids :)
|Yellow and seafoam green mist were used in the background. All the embellishments and supplies are from Studio Calico's September 2010 kit (Back 40).|
The next layout was made for the Sunday Sketch (10/03) on the SC blog. The original layout was a lovely one by Kelly Noel. I had a hard time with the sketch at first, but thanks to the bubble frame stamp, I figured out how I wanted to 'execute' the layout and I managed to finish it :)
|Most of the supplies are from Studio Calico's August 2010 kit (Summer Camp) & add-ons (Summer Camp & Footpath). The little flower epoxy sticker is Ki Memories, and the label sticker is Martha Stewart. I misted the title with Turquoise metallic mist.|
|The papers are all from SC's Documenatry line, while the label and alpha stickers are from Anthology and Homefront. I also used some Kaiser gems and Basic Grey micro-mono alpha stickers.|
-----------------Time to answer a mini-book question :) Maria L. asked what I used as for the covers of my mini-books. Normally, I use whatever cardboard/stiff board I have around the house...more often than not, it's bakery boxes, lol. I just cover the cardboard with some patterned paper and embellishments to make the cover. Chipboard would work great for covers; perhaps it can be purchased at an office supply or craft store. I'm not sure myself where to get it, sorry! When I'm being lazy and the mini-book is small, I just use two pieces of cardstock so the cover is a little stiffer.
Also, a question for you all. CurlyWiggles informed me that my blog posts haven't been showing up on her Google Reader; is it the same situation for you? I have no idea what settings to change on my blog so that my posts will show up for people. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
