This has been a long (but good) weekend.
To start off, my husband earned his Master's degree & had graduation ceremonies & celebrations. It's been a labor of love & I feel like we've all earned this degree together as a family. ;)
Saturday was also NSD (National Scrapbooking Day) & I had a blast coming up with a special layout for the occasion!
My boys are finishing up their school year & I wanted to make a page that could hold their report cards. (Their school just prints their reports on standard paper, so I inserted them into these Maya Road envelopes.)
I "traced" a chipboard star with a paper piercer from Amy Tangerine's stencil embroidery kit & then used floss from the same kit to hand stitch the shape in place. For additional stars, I used one of Basic Grey's orange fuzzy rub-ons, a copper BG star & a wood veneer star from Studio Calico.
The "notes" tab is from Chic Tags. I love how they're made to just clip over a page or element.
All of the supplies can be found here.
These chipboard glasses are part of Basic Grey's Hipster collection. I added a layer of vellum to give it a little added fun.
The ampersand is a rub-on by Amy Tangerine/American Crafts. These chipboard arrows from Studio Calico are a fun way to direct the eye around the page.
Two Peas is celebrating in a big way with fun challenges, freebies & giveaways. The challenges are open all week, so make sure to check it all out here.
Studio Calico has some awesome challenges too (along with a $100 grand prize gift card!) So... whether you like to make cards, Project Life layouts or traditional scrapbooking pages, make sure to click here to find out more!
Here is a card I made for the Project Life Team Challenge #3: Go Transparent
I love the new Atlantic printables & wanted to try them out for this challenge. I imported the images into my Silhouette software & used the circle tool to cut out a window for my card.
The card base is actually made from an office transparency & it gives the illusion that the "love" die cut is floating in the center of my card. I added patterned paper to the inside to create a space for writing a message to the recipient.
Thanks for taking a peek at my projects! I hope you'll join in on one of the challenges. :) Good luck!
