Finally, a chance to get some projects worked on. Here’s a peek at what I’ve done.
First I’m in a recipe swap at CreateMyKeepsake. Here is the card I am sending off tomorrow. I did some playing around in Photoshop for this layout. I figured out how to install and use brushes for the first time. For those of you that don’t know…the brush is this project are all the swirls at the bottom of the picture.
CMK also has a contest going on challenging members to do a project using at least 5 7 Gypsies products (I used 6). Here is my layout for this challenge. This is the title page in a Karate album I plan to make for Allie documenting her progression to black belt. The petals on the flower represent the different colors of belts she will test for on her way to black belt. On the petals, I have recorded the date that she achieved that belt color. I tried some new things here. Notice the 8.5 x 11 size, all the white space, and the fact that there is NO pattern paper anywhere on this layout.
Finally, another CMK contest. This one is for the December Guest Team Designer. The challenge was to think outside the box and make an ornament. I dug through my stack of stuff to be altered and I ran across this paper mache book that I purchased at Captured Memories garage sale back in Sept. Most products used were Basic Grey. I love the way it turned out.
This weekend I also worked on 2 albums that I’ve sold. I just need to complete the covers on them. I will post pictures later….
And finally….I got an e-mail from KI Memories. My prize package for being a finalist in the Celebrate Life In Color contest is going out tomorrow! Oh….this is going to be a very good week 😉
