Scrapbooking, Daffodil Hop

DaffodilHop
 
Happy Monday!  I'm a little late in getting this up, but I had to finish making something for someone and get it in the mail today!  I procrastinated a little too much.  I'll post about it in a week or so!  Anyways, It's my favorite time of year.  Tulip time!  Ok, this layout is about daffodils, but I see daffodils every time I go see the tulip fields.  While this layout is about the flowers from a few years back I did see the tulips again this year on Saturday.  I took lots of photos and I'm just realizing now that I got a few very similar photos this year of my daughter and husband!  Oh I can't wait to scrap them!

I made this layout for the Memory Nest's Sketch for make it Monday.  I was very true to the sketch which doesn't happen all that often.  I had a few ideas for "big title," but they didn't work with the photos and space this time.  Be on the lookout from some big titles in the future though!
 
I made a bunch of cool paint and gel feathers in the background, but they mostly got covered by the photos, oh well.  It was an experiment that worked fairly well so I'll have to try it again.
 
I used my own enamel dots that I made on this layout.  My dots came out great, but I just had them fall off my layout a few hours ago.  I'll need some stronger adhesive.  Bummer!

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.
