May 5th is officially National Scrapbooking Day! I just had to create a Scrapbook Page for my blog today. I'm also giving away a brand new set of Spellbinders Paper Arts Decorative Dress Forms die templates!
I created this Scrapbook Page, just for me. No deadlines, no directed themes, no products to feature.....just creating with my favorite things for pure enjoyment. I can't tell you how long it has been that I have been able to create like this. I just haven't had the time. It's so freeing, and really helps the creative process to just be able to create for yourself. Don't get me wrong, I love creating for companies of course, but I have recently changed the work I do for some companies, and it's been such a wonderful change.
I find that I reach for my favorite products time and time again. I also realized that my favorite products are usually the companies I design for. That's why I design for them, they make products that fit my style and sense of creativity. Funny how I'm drawn to them, and they in turn are drawn to me.
I love to distress, ink, stamp, layer, and then add a touch of bling. Want2Scrap makes the most beautiful bling ever. I used the new and Beautiful Bling Borders - Fancy That designed by Nina Brackett. OMG have you seen their new Iphone cases with bling? Eeeack!!
The lovely stamp is a new release called Garden Delights by QuietFire Designs. Suzanne Cannon designs these lovely stamps, and I just can't get over how beautiful the quotes and the fonts are. So gorgeous.
The paper is My Mind's Eye - Miss Caroline. I love the feminine look, with a bit of a rustic Wyoming look. I distressed the edges, added some ink and used Spellbinders Paper Arts Jar Labels designed by Becky Fleck. I love to hide die cuts to create the look of a tab.
Velvet ribbon, decorative stick pins, and of course several Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms were added to finish off this layout.
Bitty Blossoms were colored to match this layout perfectly by cutting them out of pure white cardstock, then misting them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I love being able to make my own embellishments, and getting that perfect color match and shimmer.
I hope you've enjoyed the Scrapbook Page, learning about my creative process, and hearing about all the details......now on to the Giveaway!
