Just Chillin’ is the name of the March kit from Scrapbook Essentials. As it’s now the 15th, I can share what I created this month:
I wanted to scrap some pics from our Hahei holiday as “snapshots” of summertime. I just loved the cute popsicles & beach balls from the Imaginisce paper, so cut some out and grouped them together as fun embellishments.
Journalling reads: “Summertime! It’s my absolute favourite time of year, and this year (2008) was a gorgeous one. On our annual holiday to Hahei, the kids had a total blast, spending houts at the beach – swimming, playing in the sand, exploring and just enjoying the sunshine!”
I wanted to highlight the red & yellow/orange colours of the nectarine Tyler is eating in the photos. Those colours seemed to contrast so well with the gorgeous blue sky and the matching Bazzill cardstock.
Journalling reads: “I just love these photos of Tyler at Lonely Bay. They show how gorgeous the weather was – blue skies, sunny days, not a breath of wind. Yummy fruit to make it totally perfect. Tyler adores fruit – and there’s nothing better after a big swim!”
Lots and lots of layering on this one, playing with different edges (punched notepaper edge & decorative scissors).
To make the butterfly, I used a chipboard butterfly as a template to cut a butterfly from Tim Holtz grungeboard, then painted, inked and doodled. Let me just say that I. Love. Grungeboard.
Journalling reads: “Little poser, you just adore having your photo taken. Today was no exception. Love this kissy face! Living it up in the summer time sun.”
ALTERED CD TIN
I had fun altering this silver hinged CD tin from the add-on kit.
I used the “Joyful Flowers” patterned paper as inspiration for the colours I used to paint my chipboard butterfly – pink, green, blue, brown and white.
