My Mind's Blog Challenges #31

Saturday, January 21, 2012

I decided to participate in My Mind's Eye Blog Challenges #31 this weekend.

I tackled the layout sketch first:

I used Bazzill cardstock (cream, dark grey), My Mind's Eye patterned paper, decorative brad and "favorite" & banner stamps, Papertrey Ink stamps (delightful doilies, label basics) & dies (beautiful blooms II #1, label basics). The alphabet stickers are Webster's Pages.

Here are some close-ups of the title and journaling:




Then, I tackled the card sketch, using some of the same elements:


I used My Mind's Eye patterned paper and "so much" stamps, Papertrey Ink cardstock (smokey shadow) & stamps (delightful doilies, label basics, happy trails). I also used this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Ghost Masking.

What are you working on this weekend?

Thanks for looking!

OH! All this banner goodness is lovely :) Makes me so happy to have the banner builder set :) Love the colors on both and your dd is so cute with her doll. I have been wanting to get back to my room to craft, but have been too busy with cooking and preparing for a trip out of town tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get a bit of time at some point..I want to work on Valentines.

This is fabulous! Love the banner elements and your use of label basics. It's been on my radar, but you have used it so well recently, it may make it into my shopping cart sooner than later.

I love those banners. It's so nice that you can make a card and a layout with similar ingredients. You have quite the talent. Thanks for reminding me how much I like those doily stamps.

Love your card and layout. Banners are 1 of my favs.
I watched Besty's video on masking, so to see you use it was a suprise. This is my first here, I will be back.
