Hi, everyone! I am still recovering from this eye infection, but I think I can see well enough to type this post! LOL Today, on the My Mind's Eye Blog they have posted their new challenge on the blog! Here are the details:
The challenge: Design a layout based on this wonderful sketch and use “FALL” as your theme (sketch by Anam Stubbington).
The rules: Use ANY My Mind’s Eye products (current or past) as long as your project has at least 80% My Mind’s Eye products.
The deadline: Add a link to your project to the bottom of THIS POST using inlinkz by Sunday, October 23, 2011 (midnight, MST). Please include your first and last name and project name when uploading. (a photo of your layout or project will show directly in the post)
The PRIZE: The winner will receive three ENTIRE collections of their choice! We will also award an honorable mention winner with one collection of their choice! All winners will be featured in a blog post and have bragging rights!
Now, how easy is this? I decided to use the Mischievious line to create a the following Fall page of my daughter. I know this line is geared towards documenting the spooky moments, but it can also be used on the everyday fall moments, too.
This photos were taken of Gabi last year at the pumpkin patch. She is growing up so quickly, and she feels she is a little too old to be hunting for the perfect pumpkin. However, glad she agreed to let me take her photo. Even though the Mischievous line is more of a Halloween line, it has many patterns that are perfect for the fall. I highlighted the oranges in this collection, by selecting the dot paper as my main focal pattern. Of course, adding in the gorgeous orange bloom from Prima that I have had in my stash for awhile.
Here, I created a pocket to tuck in my journaling. For some reason,I was in a "circular" mood, so I added lots of circles to this page. I punched a circle on the pocket itself to highlight the gorgeous black diamond paper. I love this paper, and cannot stop using it. I was so excited to see burlap as one of the newest trims released from My Mind's Eye. Burlap is so trendy right now, but could never find it in this perfect width!
Again, I highlighted the patterned paper, and layered underneath the letter "o" in my title.
Here is a closer look at the burlap ribbon, and my attempt at machine stitching! LOL I rarely sew on my pages, but decided to attempt a few stitches recently. There is one page, where it is a little noticeable that I did not sew on a straight line! LOL However, it does give it a homemade touch, and that is what is important, right? (; I will share that one soon!
One more thing before I go. I wanted to answer a few questions in regards to my classes.
Are class kits available? Yes, you are able to purchase my class kits if you cannot make the class date, or do not live in the area.
Do they come with instructions, or photos? Yes, they come complete with photos, and instructions. If you need help with completing the project, I am here to help. I am an email away(:
How do I sign up for your class? Please call Timeless at (949)888-7151 to sign up, and let them know you are paying for a kit only.
When will I recieve my kit? Your kit will be shipped the day after class, and shipping is paid to me via paypal. The store handles payment of my class, and I handle the shipping.
I hope this answers any questions that you may have, and you can see examples of my current classes by visiting this post.
Thank you so much for visiting my friends! I am off to get ready for the neighborhood garage sale. I know this sounds like so much fun! LOL However, I did find an awesome find for my scrapbook room for $2.00 today!!! I was so happy when I saw it, and could not contain myself.(Yes, I was busy shopping instead of manning our garage sale!) I cannot wait to fill it with some of my favorite scrapbook things!
Have a great weekend!!!
