2. I got some happy mail this week! Scrapbook Trends magazine requested one of my layouts for their June issue.
3. I wanted to share a layout I made last weekend, using a favourite photo of my boys.
Here are a couple of close ups:
4. We have a big event tomorrow for Cameron's side of the family. The first grandchild, our nephew, Luke, is getting married. I still remember meeting him when Cameron and I were dating.... he was four years old! And now he's getting married! How time flies....
5. In honour of #4, I thought I'd share the card I made for Luke and his bride, Laura, which I used several techniques, including this week's Make it Monday at Papertrey Ink: creating backgrounds with border dies.
I cut several strips of the heart border die out of kraft cardstock and adhered it to a kraft base. Then, I ran the whole thing through my Cuttlebug with my woodgrain impression plate. For the sentiment/tree image, I first stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it with black embossing powder. Then, I stamped the tree image over the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I added some twine and a button to finish it off.
Enjoy your weekend!
Thanks for looking!
