Glitter chipboard letters

Monday, August 18, 2008

I am so into using chipboard lately on my pages. I wanted some arrows to point on the picture where Kaitlyn is on the ride (since I did not take my good camera with the zoom to the amusement park). I couldn't find any stickers but I did find these chipboard pieces. Well then I decided I needed chipboard letters for my title to go with the arrows. I stamped them in Regal Rose craft ink. Then I decided I would put some irredesent ice on them and heat emboss it. So I got a little carried away but I love the way it turned out.

The double page spread:

And here is a closer view of the letters, I tried to get it close enough so you can see the glitter:

Almost a month

Friday, August 15, 2008

Ack, I can't believe it has been almost a month since I have posted anything to this blog. I have been making some scrapbook pages just not taking the pictures of them. It is actually easier for me to update this blog during the school year because at home I don't have a desk and pictures seem to upload faster at school. But I took several pictures of some things last night so that I can at least post a few things over the next week.

Over the summer I finally got Kyle a new book and added some pages to it. I had pages made for him just not in a book anywhere. Actually I had 70 pages complete that were not in a book anywhere. I don't necessarily scrap my pages in chronological order (b/c I scrap what I am inspired to at the moment) but I put them in the book in chronological order. I finally got myself organized with a journal type book. So now I have a list for Kaitlyn, Kyle and Family albums and I know what need to be done and in what order. I put 8 pages in Kyle's book and a couple in Kaitlyn's so I still have a ways to go.

Here is a page I made the other day of the water rides at Six Flags. This page is for Kaitlyn's book.
