Christmas in July Pocket Pages

Here is one of the 3 pocket pages we made at Thursday's Christmas in July class. I love the Perfect Days Memories and More card pack so I featured it dressed up with the Pretty Pines Thinlits to show the diversity of how this card pack can be used. This page would be great for Christmas photos but also for photos with wintery theme as I've done.

Supplies
Stamps: none
Colours: Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black, Silver Foil Paper and Silver Glimmer Paper
Accessories: Pretty Pines Thinlits

Perfect Days Memories & More

Currently my fav Memories & More card pack - Emerald Envy and Lemon Lime Twist match so well with Soft Sky and Basic Black!!

On the left side page I use one 3"x4" card from the Perfect Days card pack to create the arrow bottom border. The card was cut into 3 and then I used the Tear Tape Adhesive to adhere it to a strip of Whisper White card stock so that I had a strip. I did have to trim the edge since I lined up the arrows. Here is a close up picture of the arrow trim:

The right side page is a pocket page. The heart and "us" was punched from one of the cards in the card pack.

On Thu August 10th I will be hosting a Memories and More Facebook party, please join me on From Where I Stamp's Facebook page at 8pm: https://www.facebook.com/FromWhereIStamp/

July Crop - Loving Spoonful

This past Saturday was our July Crop with Crop Kingston. This month we raised $275.28 for Loving Spoonful! We were set up in a different room at St. Lawrence College but it was nice to have a new view out the windows for a change.

Pocket Page design I designed using the cute This Little Piggy stamp set. The Wood Textures DSP Stack. The little fence is so quick and easy. Add some small dots for nails makes it look even better! For one of the 4"x3" pockets I hand cut out a mud puddle for the pig to be in!

I prefer the pig to be brownish grey instead of pink! On these cards the pig is coloured with Water Colour pencils in Basic Grey and Early Espresso before using the Blender Pen to watercolour the images. We will be making these 2 cards along with 6 others at my This Little Piggy class on July 22, click here for details.

Lisa designed the above 12"x12" scrapbook page above and the 3D pocket bellow. I like her flags on the scrapbook page and she used the Chalk marker to write onto the darker wood texture designer series paper.


Please join us on Saturday August 12th in support of Kingston Animal Rescue - sign up here by visiting Crop Kingston's Facebook page - we would love to see you there!

Happy Canada Day! Celebrating 150 years

Scrapbook and Cards Today asked for submissions about Canada Day. I created these 2 samples for them and they posted them on their blog on Canada Day! So neat to see them featured on their blog!!

I originally created this card using the Brick Wall Textured Embossing Folder but when I shared it with my mom she said it looked too cold so I made the above using the Woodland Textured Embossing Folder. It's a good tip, try different backgrounds before gluing your project together to see if another embossing folder would fit better.


For my pocket page I wanted to create a Canada Day layout using non traditional colours. Pictures from Canada Day 2012 fit perfectly with the Color Theory Memories & More card kit. For the explosion card I cut up one of the 4x6 cards and added a strip of whisper white stamped with War of 1812. On the bottom right photo I covered up the few people with a sticker from one of the cardstock sticker sheets that comes with the card pack.

Supplies
Stamps: Colorful Season, Labeler Alphabet
Colours: Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede
Accessories: Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack, Seasonal Layers Thinlits, Woodland Textured Impressions embossing folder
