Just as I was saying "it's time to make a card", the first order from Studio Calico arrived... Gone was my card mojo, so I sat down and made another layout!
This is the second photo of my nephew. They called us into the small room to see the mother, how she was doing, and then surprise! they brought the little one as well. The expressions on the mother's face were amazing, emotional when she saw all of us around her, afraid when they put the baby on her lap (it's her first baby!), wonder as she was looking at him. How could I not scrap the photo?
I have been ogling Studio Calico products for a while now, but since I wasn't making any layouts, I hadn't ordered anything. As the date of my nephew's birthday was approaching, I thought I might get my scrapbooking mojo and I did my first order. As soon as I saw the papers and the supplies live... and with all the photos that I have... well, I couldn't resist.
The paper with the lines suffered quite a lot. I teared it, threw it water, crinkled it... and then I misted it with white mist because the colour was a bit more intense than what I liked. It was hard to start treating it like this, but once I started, I really enjoyed it, it was almost... therapeutic I could say!
And some close-ups:
Also, the dots after the "Remember" word are from the chipboard letters as well, the leftovers from "o", and the small corners on the photo are the leftovers from the "e"'s.
The layout is for the Bird is the word challenge to use the word "Remember". They also provide the following sketch, which is not required for the challenge, but it has helped me since I'm new to this.
That's all... I hope you like it!
Now that I am a bit more relaxed and have a bit more time, I will start again with the list of the supplies used. Supplies not included in the list are either included in Studio Calico kits, or are from my stash, and it is difficult for me to find links for these:
