even if May had been a very busy month, i still found a few precious moments to do some scrapping. i have to do some creative work to at least keep my sanity. here is an LO is did a few weeks ago that was intended to be the 2nd page of a spread for the LO i did as the first challenge for the PS Kaya Blog.
siempre, since the left page was about me, the receiver of the gift, the right page naman is about hubby Erwin, the giver. i was so happy about my gift, i had to do another page about it with him. especially since i saw there were two pictures among the first few ones i took with the brand new camera that struck me as a 'scrappable' moment. but the thing is, i can't show you those pictures--at least not on this blog! they're kinda Rated PG kasi...(those pictures explain why the title is "Lucky"). they are really funny and significant to me though and i really wanted to put them in my album so, to preserve the "prettiness" of the LO, i hid them under a folder.
in case you are wondering, yes, those letters were cut from a magazine and pasted like a ransom note. are they acid-free? i really don't know but i thought this is one of those moments when breaking the rules for artistic license is called for! :-D
the background paper is plain Bazzill lt.brown colored cardstock distressed with Walnut ink and MM acrylic paints (Spotlight, Shopping Bag, Manila). harlequin print was stamped on using Teresa Collins Junkitz foam stamp and Ranger Distress Inkpad in Frayed Burlap. picture laid on top of Sizzix Filmstrip die cut.
title "Lucky" stamped on red Bazzill CS distressed again with MM acrylic paint Chocolate then stamped letters using MM foam stamps Philadephia. then they were cut individually. subtitle were pieces of letters cut from a magazine.
folder was cut with a Coluzzle knife and Folders template. distressing with MM acrylic paint Shopping Bag, Gold and Spotlight. decorated with torn paper with a foiled heart print from Sandylion, cut-out camera picture, plastic frame from Carolina's, key charm with stitched ribbon, and twill ribbon stamped with words CONFIDENTIAL FILE using Provocraft Rolling Stamp Circa 12 pts. Dymo printed LIFT FLAP added as finishing touch.
as embellishment, buttons and rubberstamped and heat-embossed butterflies were added and raised using pop-up adhesives.
