blog blitzing for SC



so glad you joined me on the SC blog blitz today, if you haven't already been, go check out the other team members' and CHA guest designers' blogs, they each have their projects and a little goodie to giveaway in celebration of SC's three wildly successful new releases. you can access their blogs by going to the SC blog, using the links on my left side bar, plus click on their names to get to lisa's and geralyn's blogs.

happily, i remembered to snap a few shots of my booth layout and mini album before heading out to chicago last week. good thing because we had a blog hop planned for when we came back! i forgot to do that last show... so here's my layout for you, i got to play with the gorgeous memoir line and i used mister huey in custard (from memoir) and calico shine (from the classics collection) along with the butterfly masks to create my background. i loved those masks, i usually just use punched shapes, but i can see the benefit of having vinyl masks now. they were so easy to use! add some of the great chipboard tags and buttons, a bunch of pleated strips, and a stamp, and i was able to create one of my most favorite layouts ever! i won't tell you how many pieces of paper went towards creating the perfect balance of mists before i got my background :) let's just say my masks got a lot of use. and i'm almost out of custard...


here's a couple of close ups for you, i embossed the title because it had to be white. it was very easy, much to my joy. just press lightly so the ink doesn't slide.



my garden journal didn't get a good photo apparently, this is the before shot... the after is very similar, but looks so much better. :) inside i added pictures and notes on the progression of my garden. i just wrote and wrote, not worrying about balance and design, it was very fun to do!

the whole team is giving away a new product and i've select the mister huey calico shine (check out the entire catalog of new products here) as my giveaway. leave me a comment and i'll enter you into the drawing. comments close thursday morning at 7 MST and i'll pick a winner to post that day.
