it's been a wet & windy afternoon. Perfect for scrapping :smile: It felt good to have no plans and to be able to curl up with some scrappy supplies.
My first project is a Back to School layout for the Scrapbook Cafe. The pattern paper is not something I would typically use, but it is perfectly themed(DCWV & it's hard to see but the apples are a red foil). I was also required to use one of the templates in stock at the store (see 2 posts ago) For this layout, I used the outside edge of the template to make my photo mat.
I mounted the green cardstock with foam tape so that it "pops" from the page. On top of my pictures I layered a piece of KI Memories lace cardstock. (I know it looks a little crooked but it is really pretty straight) From my stash I added a Maya Road Sheer Office spot that I placed a glittered AC Thicker on top of. As for that template I think it's pretty cool and have a few other ideas brewing.
Next I tackled another Back to School layout for Fritz. This time I used products from the October sponsor over at Coordinates Collections. Here's just a little peek at that one:
Any guesses? I'll be posting this layout and a few others on Monday night.
Now on to a little self-promotion....
I braved the wind and rain around 4pm to walk out to the mail box. Guess what I found?
My first thought was cool, a scrappy mag to read tonight. Then I realized it was the October issue. If you can get your hands on one it might be worth checking out page 85 :wink:!
Don't forget...it's Saturday Night. That means Pat will post another challenge on her blog at 8pm tonight.
