Urban Grunge Silhouette Scene

Hey Friends,
I really needed to create a manly birthday card but I was a bit nervous because I do normally struggle with it.  I began with my favorite tool, my heat gun to add the beautiful silver shine to the chain link fence.  If you want to learn how I created that lovely texture on the chipboard gears, you can see the step by step method I used to create the faux aged metal on the ScraPerfect Blog.  You can find the complete tutorial for my card HERE.

Goodbye depression, I have had enough!  The title is also a significant reminder to me that I am enough.  Good enough, smart enough, young enough, talented enough... It is a hopeful project with an encouraging symbol of an empty cage, many free birds, and blossoming flowers.  I loved working with a limited color pallet of lilac & lavender.

A slightly more masculine birthday card.  Washi tapes make the best party bunting and a little texture paste for frosting!

Swirly Roses Card

Adding a magical cluster of bubbles (aka Dew Drops) floating down over the peaceful rose garden adds a charming element to an otherwise ordinary design. Use various sizes and colors of Dew Drops to add maximum impact and create added depth. I simply loved working with shades of lilac!

Angel Baby Layout

I know we have passed the half way point in the year but let's celebrate "new beginnings" anyways.  My niece was sleeping so peacefully through her photo shoot even with 3 outfit changes!  It was a new challenge to use grey on a layout but I'm super pleased with the result.  The pastel colors really highlight the baby theme.  The "Think Pink" label on the upper left corner is actually a fabric clothing label that I removed from one of my nieces cute outfits. You can learn more about this layout HERE on the ScraPerfect Blog.
