Happy New Year’s Eve! I’m ready to ring in the new year ‘east coast time’ (aka around 9pm my time – ha!) and make 2013 a very crafty year. I encourage you to head over to visit Simon Says Stamp & Show to see all of the other design team’s ‘mad’ and no rules creations. You should join us too – this week’s prize (as always) is a $50 voucher to Simon Says Stamp! The winner is randomly drawn – you can enter by posting to your blog, flickr, or other site too. See the blog for entry details and rules.
This week, all rules are off! So, I made a layout:
Ben-yettis quickly became a favorite word – and even now we look at those photos and Becca goes “oh yeah – ben-yettis!” Gotta catch those tiny details of family trips – and those little things that would be forgotten if not for scrapbooking.
This page came together quick – some stencil + ink (and yeah, there was some blue on my stencil so my pink ink turned purple-ish), I also used a brayer to rub some dylusions on my page as well as misting directly. Other notes – stamped with ink (field guide, washi) and paint (flourish), and really just had FUN crafting the afternoon away.
and oh yeah – I got my Kelly Purkey stamps out and put them to work as well! Overall – a layout of favorite things to play with and of course of my two favorite silly girls!
Speaking of fun – my class Field Guide is BACK! Big Picture Classes is re-running my twelve week course that features all kinds of techniques, more than 50 videos, and I can’t wait! The fun starts January 31! I will post more about it tomorrow – in the meantime you can find information here if you’re interested.
Happy New Year!
