On a more positive note, if you are interested in a quick, flower making tutorial, my Tuesday Tutorial is posted at Scrap Tiffany. I won't repost the whole tutorial here, but this is the flower I ended up with:
Seriously it will take you five minutes to make, and like the rolled roses they are sort of addicting lol! So stop by ScrapTiffany today and then again on Friday when my reveal of the Scraps Challenge is posted. Here is a little peak of that:
Hmmm, what else can I share today so I dont have to inundate you on Friday?? :)
Here is another layout from September's 3 Scrappy Boys Add On kit. On this layout for the newsletter I shared my favorite technique which is machine stitching...
And yes, I will continue to use different variations of that picture until I get another equally loved one :)
Little Man has been heavily featured in my layouts recently because I was feeling bad about how many fewer completed albums he has :(
Those adorable papers are Upsy Daisy. I hand stitched in yellow around the artisan shape. I bought those little canvas flags by Canvas Corp. It was one of those "I MUST have those" moments. I placed Thickers on each one, misted them with Maya Mist, removed the Thickers and outlined them with a brown slick writer. Then I ran the top edge through the sewing machine, overlapping just a bit so they were all attached and then glued them down and placed buttons on the corners.
And to be far, how about a girlie one?
Lots more handstitching on this one and LOTS of My Little Shoebox goodies. Who could resist those little birdies? :)
Have a great night and great week and stay healthy!
