★ few of my favs talked about...

i wanted to go into a bit more detail on a few of my favorite layouts (projects)over the past year...

First Fav: Grateful For You
one of my most favs...is this layout using the thankful line from Teresa Collins...the photo is of hubby and I, and we were visiting a dear friend in Innisfil when this was taken. We have very few photos of us..so my friend Tina took care of that for us.....and i really wanted to capture the love we have after 17 years..

the background was originally vanilla, which i stamped using a background stamp, then I stamped ontop of that and heat embossed using Tattered Angels Stamps. I then created a resist technique.. sprayed the entire vanilla background with Glimmer Mist ( Pumpkin Pie)

materials used: Bazzill Cardstock, Teresa Collins Thanksful Line, Tim Holtz Mini Stapler, Glimmer Mist, Glossy Accents,distress ink, papertrey felt, cricut sans serif, magenta corrugated cardboard, impression obsession stamps

Second Fav: Handsome Young Man:

Another vanilla background, stamped, distressed, and covered in Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist ( love that stuff) Photos are of Elijah..and were taken in our backyard when one of their cousins visited last summer..it amazes me, i see him each and every day and when i capture a photo like this, i realise how much he has changed....and he is such a handsome young man..this was such a well loved technique that it was turned into a successful workshop!

materials used: Tattered Angels stamps, glimmer mist, chalkboard mist, distress ink, and MME papers

Third Favorite:Love of My Life

another one of my hubby...Glenn...photo was taken last February in Florida on our Family Vacation...this man is self employed and finds it hard to take a break..so when we are in Florida at our timeshare, i make sure he takes it easy..(well i try to) lol! this photo captures him at his relaxed best...created for a Stamping Background Call for Creating Keepsakes..and turned into a background tutorial for Tattered Angels..

materials used: Tattered Angels stamps, chipboard, glimmer mist, distress ink, spellbinders, graphic 45 A Proper Gentlemen papers,

i also really love how this mini album turned out...using again, Teresa Collins Thankful Line and her black chipboard album, which i cut down to 7"

i had to show you these cards i coloured with my Copics and turned it into an advanced Copic Class at Karens Creations Fall Retreat..Stamps are from Whiff of Joy..sadly, i couldnt bring myself to give these away this holiday season...

i hope i have inspired you to get those glimmer mists sitting in your stash out....i find i just cant create without the mist anymore...
