Paper Lace Technique at Serendipity

Today I posted a tutorial at Serendipity Scrapbooks on making paper lace. On this LO I used paper lace, new lace and vintage lace. The patterned papers are all the Basic Grey Lemonade line, which I love. I also mixed and matched AC Thickers letters, since I have lots of odds and ends of letters. Check out the tutorial and watch for a mini album tutorial soon here!

From Daily Living

From items in our everyday life can come scrapbooking inspiration.
Core’dinations is having an everything but the kitchen sink challenge. "For this challenge we want you to grab something that is NOT a traditional scrapbooking tool. It could be something from the kitchen, the basement, or anything that will give you a cool effect (i.e., sanding over it, embossing it into the cardstock, dragging it over the cardstock, etc.)."

So I went out looking for inspiration with my 5 inch by 5 inch square of Core'dinations and my sandpaper. So I found my car........ my sweet Grand Prix. Can you tell I love my car? I used the grill to create a honey comb background for the card that I created. I used a Basic Grey Bee rub on on white card stock, which I cut out and mounted with a pop dot. The teal border was cut using Fiskars Apron String punch on the core color side of the card stock. I accented the card with vintage baby rik rak. The rub on title is from Cosmo Cricket (actually part of a Halloween rub on).

I think this card came out pretty cute from an interesting source!

Serendipity Scrapbooks July I Deserve It All Kit!!

So my fellow DT members got a kick out of me with this one. It is supposed to be the "I Deserve It All" kit, but I called it the "I Want It All" kit. But seriously, I really can't say enough about the mix of Graphic 45, Websters Pages, and Jenni Bowlin products. This kit was really exciting to work with. Kristen puts together phenomenal kits, that you will love.

Check back in the next few weeks for tutorials on the Lollipop flowers and on the mini book (made from one piece of 12 x 12 inch paper)! Have a joyfilled 4th of July and Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends!
