Holtz clock face on the front. Used a Martha Stewart hydrangea punch for the flower and stuck one of those glass gem things in the center. The interior is fairly simple, since the book won't close it there is anything bulky in there. Even with all the flat stuff, it still got a little too puffy to close flat - hence the ribbon tie. Maybe it will stretch it's little self flat again?
Moving along - here's another layout of my son (these papers work really well for boys):
I am a complete control freak and wanted to mist the background but knew I would not be able to control the black ink like I needed to. Since I didn't have paper to spare, I opted for 'controlled' splatters as opposed to the full-on spray. (Which if you have ever misted before, can be unpredictable.) Wish I had more splatters now that I see a photo of this layout.
Here's a detail of the upper corner:
Thickers. I love them. I'm going to pick up another pack today, since I depleted my 'b's' & 'u's' with these projects and I just need to have these on hand. The color is amazing and they go with everything - I think this grey is the new black for me!
Last but not least, I squeaked out one last item this morning for the Studio Calico challenges for NSD, a little card:
This card is made with leftover stuff from last month's kit. (Forgive my bad photo, it's hard to see the details.)Would love to win some SC cash. (That's the prize for the NSD challenges.) I took a look at my order history the other day and nearly fell out of my chair. That stuff sure adds up. They store your account # so you don't have to 'go get' your credit card to pay. It's so easy to charge away! Smart cookies over there at the SC! Honestly, I have never been disappointed or felt remorse for what I've purchased there - I've been using it all up and it definitely motivates me to keep making stuff. And that's good, right?
