This is the second layout I have made for my 8"x 8" scrap album. The first can be found a few posts down. I picked 8x8 as it is quick to work on & small enough to make up into a coffee table sized album that won't get put away and forgotten like many of my larger layouts. The theme of this album is Favourite Photographs. This particular layout is of the Gite in La Marchaderie, St. Mathieu, France. We are set to go back in September and I am seriously counting down the days. So far the weather here has been nothing short of miserable. When it is sunny, I'm usually stuck behind my desk at work.
The materials I have used are;
Co-Ordinates Woodgrain cardstock sanded & inked.
Patterned Papers- Making Memories Paperie Double sided sheets in Geometric Window Greenhouse, Skinny Stripe Greenhouse, which I made chevrons from.
Title is October Afternoon Newsroom Stickers.
Stickers are 7Gypsies. Journal shape cut with Spellbinders & strips created by computer. Stars stamped using SC stamps on patterned paper.
I very recently bought the new Summer Dsitress Pads from the Artistic Stamper & while I have not had a lot of time to play this weekend I wanted to make something.
I've been busy making a card for my sisters' forthcoming birthday & my next scrap layout which is based on the card & can't be shown until 5th July, but found just half an hour to create this beach themed tag.
Materials used are Tim Holtz Summer Distress Pads in Salty Ocean, Mowed Lawn & Picked Raspberry. They are extremely vibrant but just screamed summer & beach to me. I have used the Salty Ocean on my sisters card & the matching scrap layout & it stamps fabulously :0)
TH Compass Mask, TH Birds & words. Cherry Pie Beach stamps which include all the seagulls & the waves. The ART circles are from my old stash & the lighthouse is cut from one of my own photos of St. Mary's Lighthouse in Whitley Bay.
