My 15 Minutes of Fame!

Hey all!

Just a quick post to let you all in on a fabulous occurrence! I have been spotlighted (is that a word?) over at Just A Scrappin'! I think it's my 15 minutes of fame. Hehe. I don't get interviewed everyday, so this was an interesting little break in daily life. Go on over and check it out!

Here are the photos that I shared with them of two of my favourite scrapbook pages that I think showcase my style. If any of you know me personally, you know that I am a very "straight and narrow" person. I like to keep things lined up and evenly spaced!

Here is my project! For this one, I chose to do a card:

 Here is the outside of my card. 

And the inside!

The card is 5 1/2" square. 

All cuts on the front are from the Creative Memories "Traveller" Cartridge. The fuchsia is from a Cricut paper stack and the white is from Dollarama. The teal base card stock is from Creative Memories, as is the yellow on the cup and shadowing the sentiment.
The back ground frame is cut at 5 1/2".
The drink is cut at 4 1/2"
The "Relax and Unwind" sentiment is cut at 1 1/2" (The white on "Relax" is "White Shimmer" card stock from Creative Memories)

On the inside, I used the positive cuts from the glass (yeah, I tried it in pink too... hehe) and glued them with my Creative Memories Precision Point Adhesive Pen
The waves are cut from the "White Shimmer" card stock using the "Wave" cartridge in the Border Maker System from Creative Memories

And there you have it!

Just-A-Scrappin Design Challenge 2

Here we are again! Another design challenge! I am so thankful to be part of this team of talented ladies at Just-A-Scrappin'. They really inspire me to delve deeper into my brain and get the creative juices flowing.

This time around, the challenge was called Vacation Time. The only constraints we had was to use only blue, green, white and brown. Immediately, I thought of a beach scene... but then I thought that I should stretch out of the immediate idea zone and see where else that would take me.

This is what I came up with:

I decided to do a scrapbook layout digitally. Scrapbooking is where I got started in paper-crafts. Only recently did I start doing cards. I guess you could say that scrapbook layouts are my comfort zone. :)

All papers and embellishments are from the Creative Memories "Earthy" Digital Power Palette and the "Earthy Outdoors" Digital Additions. The word "Summer" is done with Edwardian Script. The layout was completed on Storybook Creator 4.0 also by Creative Memories.

I hope you draw some inspiration from this! See you soon!
