It was not easy to scrap under pressure
Here are the final entries :
using my cuttlebug embossing folder
why I scrap and never been able to stop"
"It's a 6x6 7Gypsies board album.
Instead of using pp for background, I blended distress inks,
stamped with various types of ink pads and embossed certain images on it.
Other materials are flowers, lace trims, vintage wordings,
chipboard letters (sanded for a distressed look),
stickers, a metal key, grungeboard keyhole and swirlie,
crystal swirlies and some ribbons.
There's journaling from challenge 1,
black and white photos from challenge 2,
a theme to the album from challenge 4,
no rub ons from challenge 3"
"Since we are celebrating NSD and Earth Day,
I decided to recycle and focus on scrapbooking
and my life in doing the mini album
Pages are made from toilet paper rolls
I used the embossing technique using a cuttlebug then inked the paper
Stamping the photo with a rubber stamp using an acrylic paint
I used the crakle paint on acrylic technique
I altered chipboards in 2 ways - using glitters and diamond glaze
I use the felt quilting & hand stitching technique on my cover
Masking technique on my last page
Picture bracelet technique on the chain hanging on my mini..
those are pics of my works for the ultimate scrappers
Most of the embellies here are almost handmade by me"
"I used "Simple Pleasures" and "Love" for family as my theme.
From thh challenges we did, I applied the following:
I used 1 CS and 1 PP except for one page
I used B&W elements for 1 page
I used a whimsical design as border on one of my page
I used my ATC as added embellishment for the entire mini album
I mainly used edge distressing on my mini.
The masking can be seen on the ATC."
