Feb. Scrapbook WorkShop!

There is a Colonial White CS that layers over the Desert Sand cs to be used as a journaling block or title area. I just have not put mine on yet.
Come join the fun on Sat Feb. 25 at 4;00 to complete two double lay outs! We will make these layouts from the CTMH pattern "How to" books. I will have all the materials cut and in your kits. The $14 price includes: all embellishments and papers. You only need to bring your adhesive, VersaMat, Piercing tool knit, a few inks and any of the stamp sets you wish to use. I will e-mail you a complete list of supplies when you register by Feb. 15.

A Walk on the Wild Side!

For some time now I have wanted to do a grunge layout or project, but time never permitted. I have now found a way to "make time"  LOL!   Here I was able to combine (some) grunge and "white space" scrap booking.
The CTMH (retired) textured Desert Sand cs was perfect for some fan brush painting. The solid CTMH Rustic Alphabet letters were stamped in CTMH Cocoa ink, the BT is the new Stella from the CTMH Spring-Summer 2012 Idea Book. I used our ruler (which has a metal straight edge)  to tear the BT, giving it a (straight LOL!) torn look.
