“Friends” ATC cards…..

These are the ATC card set I have made for the first ATC swap I have organized at Debs.
My theme is friends.
I have used Basic Grey Scarlett and Stella Ruby papers.
I have also stamped and embossed a corner stamp and made like a pocket,
into which, a torn piece of paper, a piece of doily
and a tiny photo of two Victorian women symbolising as friends are tucked.
I have also added a flower and a red Kaiser Pearl in the center.
All the pieces of papers are distressed using
Tim Holtz’s distress ink- Brushed Corduroy, Spiced Marmalade and Shabby Shutters.
I used the computer to print the title, cut it out
and distressed the edges using the distress ink.

Here are some closeups.

Thanks for stopping by

Closing 2008 with a Confession…

This will be my last post for 2008.
I had a good year. Learned plenty of things along the way.
I have had no regrets.I had a few major achievements this year which I am proud of.
I should thank God for giving me a good year. I will do it tonight.
I am closing 2008 with a Confession.
Yes, I am a self confessed scrapbook addict.
I am happy with it. No worries at all. Lol!!

Here is a layout I made confessing my addiction. Lol!
But I have included SB.com’s “Got to love those flowers” challenge too in this layout.
3 or more flowers and a torn paper are the rules of the challenge.

I received my parcel from 123scrapbook.com
and I loved the Bo Bunny Beautiful Life collection papers.
Just love the blend of colors and the distressing.
I decided to use 4 of the papers in the Beautiful Life collection for this layout.

The 123 scrapbook blossoms flowers also coordinated very well.
Thus I gathered all the stuff that would go well with my layout,
while watching Mission Impossible III last night.
I should say, I like Tom Cruise in MI series.
Today, I am going to watch a new bollywood movie staring Shah Rukh Khan.hehehe!!
I am getting distracted.Lol!!
I wanted something new in this layout. Something I haven’t done previously.
As I was going through my stash, I found graduation stickers.
I saw the certificate scroll and stuck with making a scroll idea.
I made the scroll by tearing a paper and distressing
using Tim Holtz’s Brushed Corduroy and Spiced Marmalade inks.
Then rolled and tied it with jute. I curled both the edges.
Ta Da.. the scroll is ready!

Here is the closeup

I also liked the punch distressing Irene Tan had done in one of her new layouts.
I decided to give it a try. I did not want it stand out but blend with the other papers.
Repeation will draw our eyes to it anyway!
I have therefore done two punch distressing, one below the other.

Here is the closeup

Here are the list of materials I have used in this layout:

1. Base is Brown cardstock from Bazzil
2.2nd paper layer is from Bo Bunny Beautiful Life Paper
3. Bo Bunny Beautiful Life Blessed Paper
4. Bo Bunny Jardin Poppy Paper
5. Bo Bunny My Darling Blooms Paper
6. Flowrs from Green Tara and 123 Scrapbook Blossoms
7. Silk leaves from Green Tara.
8. Prima Say it in Crystals Small Black.
9. Lace and the flower ribbon from my stash.
10.Title diecut alphas from stash.
11. Kindy Glitz Slick white.
12. Bo Bunny Beautiful Life cut outs.

Although it is stinking hot here, I like the warm colors in the layout.
Journalling is me confessing I am a self confessed scrapbook addict.
Yes I am!! Not a day goes by without scrapbooking.
So as well confess.lol!!

Ok then its New Year Eve here.
So I would like to wish you all a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2009.
Have fun and be safe.
I will catch you all in 2009.
