It’s time to share my County Fair pages! The January kit at Studio Calico is live and it is beautiful, as always. But first I want to share the winners of the two giveaways I had last week. I said I’d draw a winner on the 24th, but a nasty stomach bug for Christmas and then an extra long trek home yesterday (thank you D.C. traffic!) has sort of sucked up all my free time since Christmas Eve. Ugh. But at long last I have two winners! The winner of the Echo Park Paper collection pack of her choice is…… #7, Jennifer! The winner of the Photo A Day class giveaway is……..#22, Donna B! Congrats ladies and I’ll send you an email shortly with info. Thank you for all the comments on both those posts… I love reading them.
You: I knew when I saw that woodgrain paper that I wanted to use this photo since it’s mostly wood slats in the pic. I thought it would mesh in a cool way. Well… I struggled with this one forEVER. I just couldn’t get it right for whatever reason and finally just settled with it as it. I used my brand new Cameo to make the circle die cut and then misted over that to tone down the white cardstock. Supplies: County Fair, Silhouette Cameo, adhesive foam circles, glue glider pro, Mister Huey’s Clay
Dear Valentine: I love Valentine themed stuff! This page is just a bunch of red, pink, hearts, and love. I used the Cameo to cut out the heart/flower design and my heart layering punch to add some dimension to the background. Supplies: Kissing Booth, County Fair, Silhouette Cameo, adhesive foam circles, glue glider pro, heart layering punch, JBS cough syrup ink
Hot Shot: This is one of my faves this month I think. I just love these pics of Will and the cowboy/bulleye theme…perfect and so fun. I stamped the bullseye design on the paper and then hand stitched around it for a different look. Supplies: Shooting Gallery, Fiskars fingertip knife, Rusty Keys Chalk ink, Brad Setter, JBS Spice Tin ink, adhesive foam circles, glue glider pro
Photography: Once I figured out how I wanted this page to look, it came together pretty quickly. I found a shutter symbol image online, blew it up to the size I wanted in word, printed it out, cut it out and then traced the pieces onto different patterned papers. Very easy! Supplies: County Fair, Kissing Booth, Shooting Gallery, and Photo Booth, adhesive foam circles, glue glider pro, Brad Setter, heart layering punch, JBS Lemon Drop, Black Stazon
And that’s it! Enjoy your last few days of 2011… I hope to be back soon with my cover page for Project Life!
