From Shannon, "Hi and Welcome to Memory Keeping Monday! This month one of our theme prompts is using a die-cutting machine. So of course I put my Silhouette to work!
As I've mentioned before, I still have the original Silhouette. So if you are worried about what a big investment a Cameo is, don't fret…you'll be able to use it for years and years.
As you can see I incorporated some really cute artwork on this layout. And she's probably going to be a little upset when she first sees that I used it…but I figure that's better than it falling on the floor and the dog eating it…literally. It was too cute to not keep and put on display in a scrapbook. Obviously the headband was my starting point….and I added some more feathers cut with the Silhouette to further embellish.
I cut quite a bit more than I used. Once I got started on the layout I discovered it didn't need much. A bonus of using one of a kind artwork!
Ok, now you should watch the video." ...see supplies and challenge here.
From Shimelle, "This week Glitter Girl takes on the conundrum of whether to create just small pages for December, full size Christmas layouts or a combination of both! As always, this topic was inspired by a discussion [twopeasinabucket.com] on the General Scrapping message board at Two Peas in a Bucket, where you can discuss any scrapbooking dilemma. In today's adventure Glitter Girl starts with a look at two of her Christmas journals (from 2009 and 2010) then creates a 12x12 page with an extra 8x8 photo from Christmas 2009.
Come along for the adventure, won't you?" ...see supplies and challenge here.
From Laura, "I wanted to make a Thank-you card to say thanks for watching my Finally Friday video's this year, this year has been so much fun and you all have left the most wonderful comments for me. Can't wait to see what 2013 holds, and all the new scrapbooking goodies it will bring. hehe
I used one of my favourite winter lines this year, and it's by Fancy Pants called Blissful Blizzard. The paper pack includes both glitter and corrugated paper! Which I just LOVE :)
In the video I show you how to make the paper flower which is so easy, and uses paper from a number of different single sided 6x6 paper pads. In the last image here I show you a very similar card I made with the leftover scraps and I made the flower using washi tape and cardstock instead. I might actually prefer that option since you see the lovely grain of the cardstock.
The centre of the flowers is a chipboard button by October Afternoon's Woodland Park line and I just love them! I also pulled out my trusty Unibal pen which is by far my favourite white gel pen! " ...see supplies and challenge here.
