It's been quite a while since I have shared any scrappy projects. That's because I've been working on Christmas gifts for me to give and also a few commissioned gifts. And, since I don't want to spoil any surprises, I can't show you what I've been up to...BUMMER. However, yesterday, I finally finished most of the presents and decided to take a break and create something to put into my poor, neglected 2009 Everyday Scrapbook.
Prior to last night, the only page I have made in months is this page of Nate and I, titled Love, which uses the Felt Flower Blooms from my shop. I shared this project a few weeks back on the old GHU Blog, but though I would repost it here since it is full of Sassafrass love like my other two pages.
Now onto the new creations. I created this first layout with a few pictures from my sister Missy's visit back in September. It is aptly titled Sisters, and highlights photos of us at various places around town (Dos Gringos, Shamus McCafferey's and Guisuippes). I just love how you can mix and match the different Sassafrass lines and they all seem to work together so well. It's a little hard to see in the photo, but I used yellow paint on the edges to ground the layout and added a few yellow splatters across the page, just for fun :)
This last page is also from Missy's visit. She, Nate and I had all decided to go to Casey Moore's (one of my faves!) to have some afternoon beverages before she flew back home. As you might be aware, even in September, the temperature in the Phoenix area is above 100-degrees. Even so, we sat outside in the shade (I HATE being indoors!). The heat kept warming Missy's beer, so she resorted to adding ice cubes to her Blue Moon which completely cracked me up!! So, the little pic in the bottom right corner shows Missy with her iced beer :)
I used mostly Sass on this page, with the exception of a few buttons and baubles and the felt flowers that I made. I love cutting their papers into strips and shapes. It's just so fun to work with!! I also trimmed the edges so I could back it onto a solid cardstock to ground out the whole design.
Thanks for stopping by! This week you can look forward to the return of What a Girl Loves and a new Christmas tutorial. Also, if you haven't already seen them, take a peek at the newest addition to my Etsy shop, the Diva Felt FLower Blooms!
Hope to see you soon :)
