These papers were perfect for some photos I had of our trip last summer. These first two layouts are of Stockholm. Such a special place in my heart for that city! I added chipboard letters by MME, a chipboard element from Scenic Route and some lace.
For this page I added some bling, lace and hand stitching as well as Jenni Bowlin mini alpha stickers. I also tried some machine stitching but am not very happy with it. I think I may need thicker thread?
These next two pages are from Linz, Austria. For this "Family" layout I added the wooden heart (sprayed with Coffee Glimmer Mist) and I made the blossom out of the tulle and added seed beads to the centre.
For this one I also made the blossom out of tulle and added the chipboard elements by Riff Raff.
For the Beyond the Page project, I received the "Handbag Tidy" to construct and decorate. It was a bit tricky to piece together. I used Glimmer Mist and Smooch spritz on the wooden pieces first. It is a pretty little holder for my scissors on my craft table!
And finally the tube!! I decided to make a little time capsule for my desk to remind me of my favourite Florida beach. I filled it with sea shells, adhered one to the top. I glued twine around the top for a "mooring post" look. The tube is glued to a chipboard base which I sprayed with Coffee Glimmer Mist for a "beach" look.
You have to check out what the DT ladies did this month with these Beyond the Page projects especially. Wow. They blow me away with their creativity every month! Go to the Gallery to see! You will be amazed too.
