Scrapbooking, Jump

Jump1

Oh where to start?  It might seem like I've been neglecting my little space on the web, but I haven't really.  I've just been sick, sick some more, and sick again!  I seriously have had every stupid thing going around.  Every time I start to get better, BAM, I get something new.  Utter insanity!

Anyways, here is a page I made for the Memory Nest a couple of weeks ago, well this is a revised version.  I made it when I had a really nice high temperature.  In my mind it looked amazing.  Now I'm not so thrilled with it.  So, I tried to improve it a bit.  I added some gel medium triangles.  I've been wanting to try it for two months and now just felt better enough to try it.  I also added some stitching and a few mist splatters.  It has a lot more interest in it now.  I'm still not 100% happy, but it is a lot better.  I might have to do something more with the title.  Maybe add some alpha stickers or something.

Jump2

You can kind of see the gel triangles.  They look a lot more noticeable in real life.



I thought I would share this video of me playing bells at a Christmas concert last year.  I have lots of concerts that keep me busy at Christmas time.  Another reason why I don't get to scrapbook much right now.  Everyone wants to hear Carol of the Bells.

Valentine's Day Wreath

Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own.  So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!

Scrapbooking, Melt My Heart

  I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash . I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two.  The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another)   I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering.  I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.

Scrapbooking, Pumpkin Patch

  I loved how the water color background turned out for my son's page so much, that I had to try it again.  This time, I thought I would make a two page layout for my daughter's book since it has been a very long time since I've tried one.   I wanted to scrap these pumpkin patch pictures from last year because we were just about to go to the pumpkin patch again and I thought they would help me get into the fall mood.  I just love fall, but the weather in the pacific northwest is so unpredictable this time of year.  You never know if there is going to be a sunny day to go pumpkin picking so you have to take advantage of one when it comes!   Scrap Our Stash had their Tic Tac Toe challenge again, so I thought I would give it a go.  I went right down the center and did 3 buttons, decorative pins, and wood veneers.  I scattered buttons randomly onto the page.  I used up the little joy pin from Little Yellow Bicycle that I had laying around still.  I also added a li
