Hello again!  Here is another layout for the 'Circle Scrapbook' that we are making at Donna Salazar Designs.  Each team member is making a layout for each of the girls on the DT.  This month I made a layout for Lisa Blastick!
Lisa gave me a photo of her and her best friend and this is what I created...


I used papers from Donna Salazar's Botanique Collection.

I also used the sketch from the August challenge over at The Dusty Attic.
The larger of the two flowers is my Cabbage Rose made with Rose Creations dies by Spellbinders. Click HERE for my flower tutorial.  The smaller flower was made with the Bitty Blossoms dies.  Aren't they cute?!  (You can purchase both sets of these dies from my shop.)
The Fancy Tag was cut from a Spellbinders dies and the coordinating bling is from Want2Scrap.
You know me and my lacing!  LURVE IT!!  You can find my tutorial HERE.  I left out the 'twist' this time.  :o)
These beautiful Sweet Pea Borders by The Dusty Attic are also available in my shop.  

Thanks for stopping by!!!  Many hugs!
xoxo

Hello again creative peeps!  I have an off-the-page project to share today!  SMASH books have been all the rage lately, and although I love the idea, the pre-made SMASH books aren't really 'me'.  So I decided to make my own using products I already had sitting around in my studio!  Such fun!

The hard cover of the book is made from a Zutter Cover-all.  It is the perfect way to begin any type of book or mini album.  
First I applied gesso to the entire surface and then the fun began!!  I added layers of tissue...
... muslin and embossed textures...
... fiber paste and ink...
... raffia and brads.
Here is a view of the back cover.
On the inside of the cover I used lace to add a girly touch to the book.
Here's my first page!  I call this book my "shmook"... I have no idea why... LOL.  That's just the first word that came to my head!
The inner pages are from a retired collection by Basic Grey called Phresh & Phunky.  It's one of my all-time favorites!  I also used some of Basic Grey's Basic Collection in Manila.  I rounded the corners of the inner pages with a Zutter Round-it-All.
The backs of these papers are actually white!  They are one-sided papers.  I had the option of leaving the pages white or having some inky fun and spray them up!  I chose the latter.  :o)  (Sorry, I forgot to photograph them.) 
The entire book was bound with a Zutter Bind-it-All and O-wires.  This machine is so simple to use and makes book creating easy!
Throughout my Shmook, I bound tags to have a place to jot down thoughts or quotes.
As you can see, I had some inky fun with the tags too!
In the back of my book I included a vinyl pouch to hold embellishments, clips etc.
I even made my own tabs using Creative Page Tabs dies by Spellbinders!

Now that my Shmook is done, all I have to do is fill it with memories!  Hope you are inspired to make one, too!
Have a beautiful week, friends!

Much love & hugs...
xoxo

Hello!  Hello!  Today I have a layout to share that was created for the 'Circle Scrapbook' being made by the Donna Salazar Design Team.  Each month we rotate and create a layout for a different member of the team.  By the end of the year, we will have a layout from each of our teammates!  This layout was created for Donna Salazar.
I had sooooo much fun with this layout!  I tend to enjoy myself when there is a lot of paint, ink and messy stuff involved.  LOL. 
I used corrugated board as the backing for this layout.  The paper layered above it is from Donna's Mix'd Media Stax.  I used many techniques on this watercolor paper... stamping, embossing, masking, inking, painting and distressing.
Donna and her husband, Danny, are the most adorable couple!  They are perfect for each other and complement each other well.  This little question popped into my head as I was thinking of the journaling for this layout.  :o)
 
... a cluster of flowers, a Bitty Blossom, B.Y.O.B. and stitching.  The metal embellishments in the four corners of the layout are called Rivets by Zutter.
I LOVE Donna's Sprightly Sprockets!  They come in chipboard, and the coordinating Spellbinders dies are perfect for cutting paper sprockets to layer on top of the chippies.  
On these sprockets, I stamped Donna's Crackle image onto them and embossed the image with Mix'd Media Inx Embossing Powder.
Beneath the photo, I incorporated lacing to add texture.


The background paper was also stamped with Donna's Crackle Stamp and embossed with Jasmine Embossing Powder.
These Bitty Blossoms are so adorable!!  All you need to make them are the dies and some paper!

Hope you like my layout!  I will have another one to share later this month that was made for my teammate, Lisa.  

Much love & hugs...
xoxo
