WOW...it's a good thing I go to work to get things done...lol...I don't know how I'd finish them otherwise! Posting tutorials and layouts is time consuming!!
I created this LO for the My Creative Scrapper challenge of scrap the scrapper and for the Do-It-Yourself Challenge at scrapbook.com hosted by Wendy G. I've made 2 new tutorials to go with this layout, the Ribbon & Rose Vine and Tattered Rose. The pic is one I just took...well, actually Shelby took...when we went to the lake for the family photo shoot. I edited it in Photoshop Elements using Vintage blush that I downloaded for free from The Coffeeshop Blog. If you have PSE, you should really check out this blog...its got some great actions and goodies and all of it is free!
For the DIY challenge, we were supposed to use the Ribbon Rose and Pinched rose. My black flower is the pinched rose and I have 3 ribbon roses, 2 in pink and 1 in white. I also did the twist for both DIY projects by making my own original tutorials that go with both. I decided to use a pink and black color scheme for this LO b/c it went beautifully with the vintage blush effect on the photo. I added some white flourish rub-ons from KaiserCraft. Cut some black flourishes with my bigkick. The title and the title block was printed/cut with my silhouette.
The leaves are the swirly leaf stamp set from Heartfelt creations. I inked some glossy paper with the Tim Holtz tuscan Garden alcohol ink. Then I stamped the leaves with jet black archival ink and cut them out. The mini roses in the upper left hand corner are Mini Paper Rosettes, I bought the punch just so I could make the flowers. They are cute little fill-in flowers.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!!!
