Sorry I did not get this out as fast as I thought I would have. That awful bug got a hold on me and I was pretty much grounded to my bedroom for more than a few days. Needless to say, I still had our GIRLS DAY OUT projects to work on too. It wasn't the flu, but what ever it was it took me down like a lead weight in pudding. I still have a trace of energy loss and the slight cough, but, I am so much better than I was a few days ago. Hope you all are doing fine and well. I pray you do not get this bug.
Our Girls Day Out 12 Hour Crop/Craft went well. Had many crafters there and I saw many kinds of projects. I have a few pictures to share of that event at a later date. Thank you to all who came out. And our team members were Super with their talents that they shared during their
Workshops, and Make-N-Takes.
Our next one will be April 27, 2013. Hope you can join us. The website for the next event will be updated soon. In the mean time if you would like to check what we do, go by and visit the blog at http://memphisareascrapbookers.blogspot.com
Here's the latest monochromatic blues I worked on. All items are left over from paper packages or left over products from other projects. I really had fun playing around with my scraps and coming up with this little ditty. Hubby doesn't know it...But, I will give it to him with a special pic of him and our beautiful grandson. He can put this on his desk. It's not too fru-fru and it's in many shades of blue.
Here you see where I stamped each monogram letter on the different blue papers and then used the 1.25" CTMH Circle Punch. This punch and stamp set coordinate well together. Also, If I were doing many of these, The stamp set also coordinates with the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge. You could cut all 26 Monogram letter bases in no time on the Cricut and stamp the images so easily.
Here are some of the supplies used in this project
1 cube left over from the My Creations Collage Cubes
Lots of CTMH blue shades from the B&T papers from Magnifique,
Dreamin, & Cherry-O.
Once the project is finished you really can't see each different design.
I used 4 - 2" x 2" Squares in Sky Blue c.s. for the sides.
2 - 2" x 2" squares in Denim for the top & Bottom of the cube.
I adhered the squares with my Bonding Memories Glue Pen.
I sealed the edges with the liquid glass, used very little so it would not run.
Here I used the Martha Stewart anywhere decorative scallop circle punch to cut the
white outer center. I used our CTMH 2" Scallop Circle Punch to cut the background base.
I adhered the decorative scallop circle on top of the dark blue scallop circle.
Then I pop dotted the Monogrammed Circle in the center of each.
Then I adhered these to the sides of the block with Liquid Glass.
and also one on the top (without a monogram stamp).
I took one of my clips that had a button base, bent the clip upward
attached to the center of the top circle (no monogram in center)
I did hold this one for a few minutes while the Liquid Glass dried.
I added my Glitter Glitz Gel around the button base to give more
sturdiness to the clip. I also added the Stardust Glitter Glitz Gel
to the openings of the decorative scallop circle to give it a
bit of glitz and bling.
I also added the Stardust Glitter Glitz Gel to the
Monogram Letters to help each letter of the word
LOVE stand out a little more.
To add a little more sheen to the sides, I used my
CTMH Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint. This picture does not
do it justice, but the shimmer with the glitter from
the letters does shine. Now, I just need to print the perfect picture
of my grandson with grandpa to add to the clip for my
Hubby to enjoy when he works at his desk.
Entered into the following challenges
Their outing of the backseat Oreo mess, Reading nap time story,
or the Ultimate Grandpa Kisses
Done with the Blue Monochromatic and ready to go to
a new shade. I'll be playing in my craft room later
this week. I wonder what my mood will swing to
Purples, Pinks, or Greens. Who knows!!!
Would love to hear your crafty comments on this little ditty.
