I was able to make 3 layouts and 3 cards each reflecting a different "vibe" that the paper can so easily help to convey.
First, the gorgeous snowflake paper...yes, in a lovely sage green. I love the feel of the elements on this page with the paper...
Next, a "blue Christmas"...anyone who knows me knows how very much I love blue... so, you'll have to stop by the store to see the "fine print" on this page. I printed the photos on a transparency to convey the idea that these memories are faint, fuzzy, fleeting (these photos are from 3+ years ago).
I used traditional "red/green" for my "Remember" Christmas page. This line comes wtih a sheet of die cut elements that make putting together pages like these a snap. It was really fun digging up some old photos and reflecting on them in a new way...
Finally, the cards...with the elements left after the pages, I was able to create 3 (and there could've been more, but alas, I should've been sleeping:), fun and fresh cards.
Tricks and Techniques used:
*print photos and journaling on transparency
*paint chipboard letters and then coat with Diamond Glaze
*cut the tiny strip from the end of the paper (where "My Mind's Eye" is printed) and use it for yet another page element
*use Diamond Glaze to accent parts of an element and sprinkle with glitter (on the snowflake card)
You'll love this line...give it a try!
