Paper Layout: New Beginnings

I created the above paper layout by following the steps from Wilna Furstenberg at Studiocalico.com.  She used gel paint in her tutorial but I don’t have gel paint so I used what was available to me, which was, gel matte medium, and acrylic paints.  The intricate die cut was created by Wilna as a freebie.  I used the Silhouette Portrait to cut it out and then gently removed it from the mat with an exacto knife and a plastic scraper.  It’s a little time consuming but it’s one gorgeous piece of die cut.

This layout was so much fun to make.  I’ve never used paint on a scrapbook page like this so it was a really great learning experience.

 

Digital Scrapbook Layout: Day at the Beach

I couldn’t resist making another layout.  This one is very plane but I love it.

Try Walking In My Shoes

lbpumps0002_500It’s no fun walking in someone else’s shoes but why do we want to sometimes?  I don’t normally wear pumps because they hurt my feet like crazy and they make me feel miserable if I have to wear them.  I prefer my very old and comfy pair of Dansko clogs or sandles to heels anytime.  Yet, I find myself drawn to the heels section at a shoe shop.

Here is a blog hop freebie in celebration of iNSD (International Scrapbooking Day) which is tomorrow, May 4th.  Create whatever you want with it.
