Welcome to my corner of the world! If you didn't come here from Michelle's blog, you should start at the beginning of the hop at Kim's blog for some GREAT inspiration. As one of this month's guest designers, I feel privileged to be among some talented ladies! ;-)
I've been saying this all week but just as a reminder:
My Favorite Things (www.mftstamps.com) is having a New Release Cocktail Party on Wednesday, March 4th from 9-10 PM EASTERN. This month there are 5 new sets being released including a Who's that Girl who is hanging with her peeps! Head over to the MFT forum on www.splitcoaststampers.com to find out all the details and to find out how YOU can be the next MFT Guest Designer. If I can do it, so can you! ;-)
Okay, on to the eye candy! I couldn't really decide what to show so I'm going to show two projects (well, one and a half perhaps). Mainly because I really loved the Hooga Booga set and I just couldn't put it down!
For the card, I paper pieced three of the cute little critters. When I first saw this monster/critter, I just really wanted them to link arms. I linked their arms together but cutting out the arms (and gluing them back in behind the paper piecing). It reminds me of all the times I played Red Rover as a child. Isn't that saying just adorable? I stamped it three times for a little more fun and to extend my sentiment a little.
As some of you may know, I'm getting married in less than a month (gasp!). For my grooms gift, I decided that I'd make my honey something he can treasure forever. I'm going to show a few select pages as a girl's gotta have some privacy! ;-) Can't show my lovey dovey-ness or R rated commentary on a blog. *smirk*
For the cover, I stamped the cloud images from the Hooga Booga set onto the acrylic. Once it dried, I used my glue pen to fill in the area and pressed some white flock on. I think it turned out quite well. :-) I have to admit, it looks pretty cool to see flock on acrylic in person.
Since the album is graduated in size, I let some of the little critters peek out from the edges. The scallop papers between the acrylic pieces are actually just cardstock that I trimmed to match the size of the album. I don't believe in a 5 page album.
All the little critters (and they're all over the book in various spot) are either paper pieced or colored and all have a little flock on them as well (since I've learned my honey likes texture and all things fuzzy).
Everything else I think its pretty self explanatory. To make it a little more fun, a lot of my pages have windows into the next page - easier said than done sometimes... I have a lot of punches to sharpen this weekend and a sore hand. ;-)
Okay, I've kept you here long enough... I'm sure you're all ready to move on to the next stop on the blog hop - the lovely and ever so talented Jody!
