Full Reveal!

Well, I know I've been MIA for way too long. Certainly, it wasn't my choice. Let's just say, my computer decided to take a break. I've taught it a lesson and completely reformatted the drive, so hopefully it won't be doing that again!

I'm happy to post two final projects from our January kit at Scrapbook Queens (the first one being the Valentine's card on my previous post.

This one I created because I love this picture Emma had taken while at summer camp last year. Something about the way the sunlight shines through the straw hat, and her smile. 

The tree was made by cutting out a "twiggy tree" by Memory Box out of the same Harmonie paper I used for the background. Then, I used the reverse side of the yellow clouds and used some pop dots to give dimension.  A little bird rubon from Studio Calico is the final touch.

Products used: Kraft background paper - Harmonie, Clouds and tree, flowered paper - Pebbles Tree House collection, yellow frame is Echo Park, cut with the sihouette Cameo, Tree die cut - Memory Box Dies, "Emma" letters - Thickers, "eleven" stickers - Jillibean, the cute little bird is a Studio Calico rub on.

The final layout I'm posting today was actually the first one I made for Scrapbook Queens. I did it right after New Year's...

If you're really paying attention, you see that the green frame is exactly the same as the yellow one from the other layout. I used the negative of the yellow bracket frame here to brighten up the layout. I used a black background to make it look more like a nighttime fireworks/streamer kind of thing.

My 2012 Scrapbooking Resolutions:

1. to keep my scrapbooking area neat
2. to try new things (check!)
3. to figure out the P/A/S/M settings on my camera
4. to make all my birthday cards
5. to include myself in my layouts

We'll see how it goes. :)  Confession - scrapbooking area is already a mess.

I wanted the "2012" to really pop, so I cut out the shape about 5 times from black cardstock with my Cameo, and I stuck it all together. It worked great, as the green paper was too thin to sit solidly with the pop dots. I used two layers of stickles on the 2012 so it's EXTRA sparkly.

Products used: patterned paper is Echo Park, cut with the sihouette Cameo, Bazzill cardstock, Stickles


  1. What a great layout! I really love all the little touches you've added--the trees, grass and everything. All just looks great!

  2. Great layouts, Rona! I enjoyed meeting you and Twila on the weekend! I had fun at the crop despite not accomplishing very much! LOL! I'm so slow!
