Here's what I've done with my kit:
I cut out the fairy from the Webster's paper and the stack of books were cut out from the striped side, using my fall Slice cartridge. I took a thin strip of the striped paper, sewed a basting stitch in the middle, wet the paper, and then gathered it quite tight. It's hard to tell, not a great photo, but that's what is on top of the sparkly ribbon.
I think I'm being a brave girl here, just showing everyone a photo of my bald head! I really felt these cards needed to be scrapbooked with this photo. Journaling reads: 2010 - my year to be courageous. Cancer is a terrifying word, just thinking about it, fills you with panic. Chemo and Radiation were just something I had to do, to put cancer behind me. I may have lost a breast and all my hair, but I think I have gained a new attitude towards life. My priorities have definitely changed.
I love these Pink Paislee papers, it was hard to pick which side to use! I also used my new Martha Stewart "all over the page" butterfly punch. This punch is going to be used a lot! It is so easy to use. There are two parts; one goes under the paper and the other on top, both snap together with magnets, you push down and your paper is punched out.
I also made two cards with the kit.
That's all I've managed to get done with the kit so far, I could get a couple more layouts yet.
For all you who are in the Edmonton area, be sure to check out the Ice Sculpture display on Whyte avenue. We took my cousin there last week before she headed back to Brisbane, Australia. Actually, we almost ran through the displays, it was so cold. She was freezing, poor thing, not used to -32C weather, just the opposite +32C! I'd like to go back, now that it has warmed up, and they have finished sculpting them, here's a couple of photos.
Have a great Tuesday!
