I had some time to actually play this weekend, so
I created 4 new LO's, all of which came together
fairly quickly as I am learning to use companies
that have paper, and stickers and embellies
that all go together. Seems to help me, since
I can get a LO done in an hour instead of
the usual two or three it used to take me.
The above LO was from the dual celebration
we had for Amy and Jordyn's last birthdays.
One of my favorite product lines right now is
Simple Stories, and this is the birthday set.
I am not usually a bright paper kind of girl,
but I did want to have fun with it, so since
I had two of each piece of paper, I used the
second to cut out the extra pieces for the
banners along the top and the word
birthday so I could pop them off the page
with dimensional adhesive.
I once again used the Simple Stories line for this
layout above from Tim's birthday, this line is called
Document, and of all the lines they have put out
this is by far my very favorite. I actually bought
a limited addition kit and it had these wonderful
overlays in it, and I didn't put it completely over
top of the photo of Tim but angled it, I seem
to like this look as I have done it before. I also
used a photo app on my phone to alter the
picture of the cup, to just make it colored and
the rest of it in black and white. The app is
called ColorSplash, and is pretty easy to use.
This LO is pretty much all the Authentique Paper line
of products and it all goes together so well, and
I pretty much had this LO done in under 1/2 an hour.
The photos were taken on Linda's last trip over, and
are all from my Iphone. the bird paper is actually
a mouse pad of paper that I just recently got at
Chapters for 50% off, got to love a sale.
This last LO is done with mostly my new kit from
StampinUp and I love how it all came together so
nicely, and how the black and white main photo
just pops off of it. I also tried a new technique for
me and used the cut out section from my cricuit
instead of the actual letters I cut, it's like a
shadow effect and it says birthday stroll, and
looks more vivid in real life. The thing I like most
about this kit is the stickers are cardboard ones
so stronger and more of a texture then just
simple stickers would be.
