Who's That Girl?

Remember me?
Well, I am blogging again.
After a super long hiatus from the blog world.
Time flies.
A lot of ups and downs.
But things are finally back to normal.
I am so eager to start page making again!
But first, I want to bring my blog up to date.
So I want to share some pages I haven't posted here yet.
Here are three pages I created combining Color Combos Galore and Pencil Lines:
These are the new Inspiration Boards I created for CCG.
Don't you just love them?

starting with the most recent....

Gorgeous blues with the yellow!
I just love this Inspiration Photo.
All the letters.
Made for a fun Inspiration Challenge!
The Designer's Challenge: Use a monogram.
Sketch: Pencil Lines Sketch 197.
Kit: Scarlet Lime (Apr '10).

Supplies: Scarlet Lime (Apr '10), Martha Stewart Butterly and Border Punches (2)

I think that is the most whimsical layout I created.
It was a lot of fun for sure!
I used a Making Memories die cut paper as a template to cut the houndstooth paper.
The 3.00 symbolizes March 2000.
I know, it looks like 3 o'clock, doesn't it?


How GORGEOUS is this cake?
I was so excited when I found the photo.
I knew the The Inspiration Challenge was going to be fun, fun, fun!
My favorite:
The Designer's Challenge: Use border punches, ribbons & trims.

Supplies: Scarlet Lime (Feb '10), Martha Stewart Border Punches (2), Pop-Dots (tons)

On this layout I just kept layering and layering.
With an old heart punch, that was my first attempt at creating a banner.
yeah, ok.
I also tried pulling thread through ribbon.
I don't usually use ribbons on my layouts.
Though I love to collect lots of them. :)
Loving these Marta Stewart border punches!

and one more.....

Such a beautiful photo.
Our theme for June was weddings.
For the Inspiration Challenge it was either use lace or stitches.
We went with stitches.
Although I was a bit reluctant, because I have never sewn on my pages.
But I did it.
Not sew, of course.
Faux stitching.
Here is the Faux Stitching Tutorial I created for this challenge at Color Combos Galore.
The Designer's Challenge: sewing on the page or use faux stitches.
Sketch: Pencil Lines Sketch 190.
Kit: Scarlet Lime (Mar'10).

I used a paper piercer to create stitchless holes.
Very faint, can hardly see it on the border.
But that's okay.
Not sure how I made that paper flower.
I was trying to do something else and ended up with this.
I tried a pink stamp on the letters.
Not quite the pink I was hoping for.

I have more to share, but I will put that in another post.
Heading over to CCG to pick my Gallery Fave for today!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

CCG #115 and Pencil Lines

Title: R&DaddyThis is Rianna when she was just 17 days old. My husband once told me that he only wanted to have sons. Typical of a Pakistani. Hmmph. But when she came around, he had no idea how much love he had for her. I just love how he is embracing her.

Color Combos Galore #115

Pencil Lines Sketch #126
Cardstock: Bazzill (kraft); Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye (dot), Crate Paper (floral), Chatterbox (brown); Lettering: Chatterbox (daddy, "R"), American Crafts ("&"); Rub-ons: Heidi Grace (floral), Hambly (journaling spot), Sassafras Lass (stitches); Stickers: My Mind's Eye (green scroll border, blue strip); Other: American Crafts (brad); K&Co (circle tag); Tools: Fiskars (border punch); Unknown: ribbon, flowers, embroidery floss

I pretty much stayed with the sketch. No flipping or turning. It was pretty easy to interpret. Once I found my supplies.

See the blue peeking through the border? To save paper, I used blue strips and used the adhesive tabs to stick it behind the punched border. Clever, huh?

I also combined this with the Stash Challenge at Two Peas - use My Mind's Eye, Chatterbox and Crate Paper. I was able to combine all three and still managed to work the colors together. I like recipe challenges because it's a real challenge for me to stick to it, digging through my stash searching for the right mix that will work for the color combo.

I tell you IRL it is closer to the colors than it appears here, the photo was taken indoors and I had to tweak the lighting a bit. I am very pleased with the way it turned out, though. Also love that I used my new Fiskars border punch. I just want to punch, punch, punch. LOVE IT!

Thanks for looking, going to upload the next one!
bye for now! COMMENTS:
