Another great day of great scrapbooking. This time it was with family, 2 of my sisters and my niece from out of town. Just about 14 hours of time and I finished 5 pages with breaks for potluck lunch & dinner. I'm getting to the end of 2007 photos and I'm anxious to be done!
This is a collection of flower photos for a filler page. The letters are the Fruit Smoothie sizzlets. Works really well.

Check out this wonderful copper glitter paper. It's really nice. I managed to get 3 packages. They had a coordinating stripped in the same colors but it was metallic and not glitter. I could not resist but I'm not really sure what I will do with it. The pattern is large for card making. Maybe I'll do something in my 12x12 frame for my craft room.

This is the one card I created with the option of an Easter greeting. The tulip is my own drawing color printed directly on the card. The frame cut by Sizzix Retro Frame. I color printed the greeting then cut them out with the CM oval cutter. I understand they have swivel cutters now for this system. I should look into acquiring them. Again, versatile with many color options. I used the direct to paper technique on the white card with a bit of ink to offer a bit of dimension.
A super simple and elegant card. The embossed layer was created with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I made 2 different designs so I could double them up in the Big Kick machine. The challenge was then to find stamp ink to match card stock. I put a pop dot under the circle greeting to add a bit of dimension to this card.
Here's the #9 card for this month. The flowers were cut with Cuttlebug daisy dies and the circles are 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 from StampinUp! I just got my 1 3/4 punch but have not used it yet. the leaves are a sizzix die that cuts 3 at a time. How serendipitous this that! Many color options possible with a not too busy background paper. By turning the greeting 90 degrees you can make the card tall instead of wide. Or keep the greeting off completely.
I decided to use scrapbooking emblishments on my cards. I found a card in one of my books that used photo turns to keep the card closed. I thought I can work with that. Again, the card kits came in several different colors. This one was is very monochromatic with a bit of accent color.

I attended a Scrapbooking Retreat this past weekend. There were 2 dozen of us, some who were just starting, some who were scrap-booking digitally on their laptops and the rest of us trying to crank out a good number of pages. 26 hours of time! I managed 16 pages with a bit of journalling to do when I got home. I was very happy with that. This is the first retreat I paid to attend. The food was good and we just went home to catch a few ZZs. The make & takes included full two pages spreads and some elements. We each received a bag of goodies as well. This is one of the pages I completed. I did not complete all the pages I had prepared so I'm ahead for the next time.
