A House of Cards

Monday, March 30, 2009

Hello there...

Remember me? Sorry I haven't been around lately. I just haven't had a lot to post. I do have a few things to share today, though.

I have been working with the March kit for my LSS, Scrapbook Mania. I got to work with My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow "Grow" line. I always love MME, so this kit was so easy to work with. The colors were right up my alley! I managed 3 layouts and 2 cards and I used up most of the kit with just a few little bits left over. Love it when that happens!

I did a lot of inking on the paper frills, since only orange came in the kit. It is a quick and easy way to add color to your projects. Very cost effective too, if you already have the ink pads.
Another thing I did was to paint the letter stickers in the "puppy love" layout using green acrylic paint. Just place them on a piece of wax paper and lightly dab them with a sponge brush. A great way to help you use up all those letter stickers you have that are not quite the right shade or color for you project.
Well, that is all for me today. Thank you all so much for stopping by! :)
