Yesterday a customer told me that her daughter looked out the window the day before and yelled out, "Mom, the sky is blue!" That's pretty much how we have all felt around here for the past few months. Even though our winters are long and cold, we usually have sunny skies quite a bit(sunny Alberta!). But this winter has been gloomy, which I find harder to take. Last week, I think, the weather was getting to everybody, we were all grouchy! For me, I just bought more scrapbook supplies, to get over the weather blues! It's not good for the wallet, to work in a scrapbook store, especially when all the new product from CHA is coming in every week. My favorite two, Pink Paislee and Glitz Designs arrived, and they did not disappoint!
I did another layout for Little Black Dress March kit:
Their March kits are sold out, but most of the papers and embellishments used were from Glitz's new collection, "Love Games". Love their packages of "Paper Layers", which are like small book pages. This is one of them, the paper with the banner. I extended the banner by drawing on my background paper with felt pen, coloring in with diluted distress ink, and cutting out a few triangles from pieces of paper. There was a string of pearl beaded ribbon in the kit, which I pulled through cut out flowers from the patterned paper. To adhere the end swirled part, I just stitched it in a couple of places instead of glueing it. This photo is of my husband's grandmother and her cousin in the early 1900's, ready to play tennis! Not exactly the same attire, women wear now!
Well, it's already April and time for Urban Scrapbook's April Challenge kit of the month. This month we were given the challenge of using stamps on our layouts. The paper and stamps are from Glitz's new line,"Laced with Grace." I love the colors in this line, the oranges and greens are gorgeous!
The Design Team layouts are on display at the store (and eventually on Urban's website), check them out to see what everyone has come up with! We were late getting our product in this month so most of the girls just got their kits on Wednesday, so not all of them have finished yet. I'm always amazed at the different ideas and layouts we all end up with from the same kit!
Have a great weekend!
