How to make a GIGANTIC SCRAPBOOK PAGE, sort of!!

24 Jan

Ok, so this is not really a scrapbook page.  I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I had been asked to do the bulletin board in the hall for the women’s group for our church which is called the Relief Society.  Now, the Bulletin Board is quite large and this could be quite a task for some people.  But you know what?  I look at walls and things like bulletin boards like large cards or scrapbook pages and just scale my designs on a somewhat GINORMOUS scale.  So, for this post I thought I’d show you what I did for this particular Bulletin Board, because I tend to get nice comments on them from time to time.

First and foremost I have to give a tremendous shout out to my fabulous friend Therese Travis who is the Artist for all the dolls I have used on this project.  She happens to also be an author of some really fabulous books and you can find her books on Amazon here: THERESE TRAVIS AMAZON PAGE

Her books are very sweet with nothing offensive in them and I have enjoyed getting to read her literary works as well as working with her art.

Without further ado, here is what I have created:

I started out covering the board with craft paper and edged the entire board with large doilies.

Next came the headings.

2014-01-24 11.13.25 (1)

Then I added a banner or sorts.

Close up of the dolls together.  The scripture they represent is:

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.  (1 Corinthians 13:13)

Here is the doll for the Faith portion of the scripture.

One last look at the Board.

What do you think?  I love the way it turned out…it will of course have flyers and other stuff added later..this is just the basics..but you get the idea.

Anyhow, this is what I did today!  I just thought I’d share it with you.

Wow Embossing TEAM POST – The GLITTER GIRLS!!

7 Apr

With my fun job over at WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS…we all have teams that we are on.

My team is called THE GLITTER GIRLS and today is out team post to WOW you.

For this layout, I used stamps from the two sets called, Is it a bird? and Call Me.

 I also used three different powders: Earthtone Olive, Earthtone Blueberry and Primary Bark.

These colors matched perfectly with Authentique Papers I used.  Since I took these pictures right before I headed up to the Authentique Paper offices, it is kind of nostalgic that I used their papers.

 I used the large stamp from CALL ME to add to the overall background of my base papers and for the papers I mounted my pictures with.

 For my journaling card I used one of the trees from the IS IT A BIRD? set.

 Also for the journaling card I used my embossing pad to adhere the embossing powder to the edge.

I hope you liked this layout!  I was so shocked at the shear innocence and beauty I caught in this picture of my daughter with the eleven-foot marble Christus statue.
The original was sculpted by the Danish sculptor Thorvaldsen.  You can read more about the statues history here.
I do have to share another of the pictures I took that day.  I could have used this one also, but the layout would have had a completely different feel.
Here is the picture I am talking about.
What do you think here thoughts are in the above picture??
Anyhow, I love the picture above just as much, again is shows the pure magic and innocence of a child.
Now, I would love for you to head on over to the WOW EMBOSSING POWDER BLOG and see what the other glitter girls have made.
They are all so talented, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Have a great weekend all you lovely people:)
Ta ta for now!

Wowed by WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS

11 Jan
Hello blogging world, today I am sharing my first project here for the fantastically yummy embossing powders by WOW.
I created a fairly simple layout so that the colors of the powders would really stand out.
I started with a picture that I manipulated in PSE.  I wanted the picture and my title to be the background paper.  Here is what I started with.
Yep, that’s me..goofy I know but it is what I wanted!!
I had the image of what I wanted to do in my head, and here is what I dreamed up!
When I look at this layout, I am just giddy.
I used the Wow Beautiful Clear Stamp set called GRATITUDE.
All the embossing powders I used are from the CANDY COUNTER COLLECTION–Berrylicious, Whirly Pop, Sour Lemon, Gummy Bear Green, Bubble Gum & Cotton Candy.

This is for a book I have decided to do about me.
We all have things that are unique, things that make us who we are.
I am a Sunday School teacher for teenagers and this past Sunday I was talking about the importance of journaling.  I had this MOMENT while planning my lesson that I wanted to do a book about the nuances that make me who I am.  I told my class about this and told them that journaling can be really fun.
I told them it was my promise I would start myself and that I would create something and bring it to church the following Sunday.
Now that I have my first page I can’t wait to do others.
The WOW embossing powders will come in very handy during this process!
Sorry, for my ramble…I just thought I’d let you know what my page was all about!
Thanks for the visit and I hope you get a chance to play around with these fun powders!
