This is another not so liked one. It was awesome, until I hand journalled across the bottom of the right hand page without first drawing journalling lines. So I covered it up, and re-did it on the blue paper, but forgot the lines. I think, however, I learned my lesson: always draw guide lines.....
Okay, I hate this one. It so did not turn out how I intended. I did learn a few things though: regular ink does not go over pigment ink very well, and never try to edge chipboard with a marker, it just doesn't work. You see, what happened was, I wanted the letters to be white with just a little pop of color on the edges. But I'm not so good with the marker, which missed the edge a couple of times. So then I tried putting white pigment ink over the mistake, which made it worse. Then I colored over them. I should have just done something different, but I had already invested the effort into the crappy looking letters. So although this is a really ugly layout, I'm determined to still put it in the album. I think. Maybe.
Supplies: Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye, Cardstock, chipboard, ink, paper flowers, sparkles: CTMH.
I wanted something to remember their first swimming lessons with, so I attached this layout to a 12x12 True Fit Folio, essentially a file folder. Inside it, I put their little report cards from their first swimming lessons. They didn't match the color scheme, but this is a great way to keep them. I also really liked the red glitter letters, it really pops the red boat they are playing with.
All supplies CTMH except for the Thickers Glitter Alpha Stickers.
This was a layout from the Topstitch WOTG, and I also love how this one turned out. Let me tell you, it was an awful bedtime experience in the hotel in Houston, but after she finally conked out, she was so adorable.
All supplies CTMH except for the glitter alphas, they are from Making Memories and the Thickers alpha stickers.
I totally love how this one turned out. I wasn't sure about the Autumn Terracotta cardstock, but I think it works with the blue and turquoise. Plus I got to use up some ribbon that was hanging around, and that really cute pretend mustache.
