Love of a Lifetime

I created this beautiful album in celebration of my Grandparents being married for 70 years!  The paper line "Timeless" from Blue Fern Studios has the perfect colors and the perfect illustrations to help me create the perfect emotions for this album.  I inked the chipboard album with Chestnut Roan Cat Eye ink pad, applied crackle medium around the edges and painted over the top with Deco Art Antique White acrylic paint and inked the edges again.  I scattered a few flowers from Prima Marketing in the bottom corners, some metal embellishments, and Le Creme Pearl Rhinestones.  The door knobs are brads from Graphic 45.

I embellished the pages with Want2Scrap Baby Bling Pearls and ribbon.

 I covered the Small Bird Flourish chipboard with card stock, inked the edges with Chestnut Roan Cat Eye ink pad and added Want2Scrap small pearl rhinestones swirls for the wings.  I used the Spellbinders die cut, Fall Botanical to create the "Blessed" die cut and the Foliage Flourish to create the nest for the birds.  

This is my favorite page of all, not only because of the beautiful paper, fun bling, and ribbon but for the promises made in 1946 and the promises that were kept for 70 years.  The legacy they left for all of their grandchildren is truly a blessing!

I hope you enjoyed my "Love of a Lifetime" album.  I would love to hear from you.

Blessing Book

I created an A to Z Blessing book for the families            
that hosted my daughter and I while we were in Germany this summer for a student exchange program.  I've created a Blessing for every letter of the alphabet.  
Example- “A” is for Accomplish-

“God bless you to Accomplish                                                            all that He has call you to.  
                          I used the "Hattie" paper line from one of my favorite companies-
                                                                 My Mind's Eye

I've scattered Want2Scrap bling thru out the album.
I used #7602 Swirls Maxi Girl Rhinestones – Silver, 
                           #6105 Frilly Flourish Swirl- Silver Rhinestones 
#2056 Rhinestones 72-Silver


                             Some pictures are in taken in Colorado when the German students
                                                                  were visiting us.

                    And other pictures are of when we went on Holiday with them to Paris France.

                         It was a Blessing to host the German students and it was a Blessing to 
                           share experiences with them in Germany.  We can't wait to go back!

Want2Scrap Orange Bling Framed Pear

Hello Want2Scrap friends, it is Linda here back on the Blog to share a vintage Marektplace card. Did you know that Want2Scrap Bling extends to many colours - for my card I could not resist using some of the 250 Count Rhinestones - Orange Rhinestones- so bright and a 'citrus' feel.

I have used a vintage image from Crafty Secrets, layering it onto a panel that has had lace adhered to it.  I have used  checked paper - almost a gingham feel to it, which works perfectly with the image and the palette.  These layers have been popped up onto the card front - which has preciously been cut/embossed using the Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken and layered onto a slightly larger pre-cut orange card base, using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L:  E-Z Adhesive Runner, 3D Foam Squares

The layered image has then been popped up onto a precut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Two corners from the Graceful Corners One Card Creator Amazing Paper Grace by Becca Feeken have been cut/embossed using white card stock and popped under each end of the Crafty Secrets image.  Small 250 Count Rhinestones - Orange Rhinestones  have been added to the Graceful Corners and along the lace.  The computer generated sentiment has been adhered lower side of the image using liquid glue.
