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.

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!

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.

I love yellow pages.  They always make me so happy.  I made this for SWAT drill 16.  The layout sketch was a fun one to work with.  I stitched the pink cloud and then made another one out of some vellum.  At first the cloud was going to be yellow, but I wanted to make it stand out more so pink it was!  I also used some weird texture board that I had laying around and I misted it up with yellow, orange, and pink. Normally, I make my pages about the event in the picture.  This photo was originally going to tell about my daughter playing in the sprinkler, but it turned out to be more about her expression.  So my journaling was more like a little prayer for my daughter then the normal story telling. The twist for the drill was some twine.  I used it for the button and I also wanted to use it to stitch the cloud, but I only had yellow and blue twine and that wasn't working well.
