Hi there, people --
So yesterday I woke up to a lovely, cool (even chilly!), breezy day. So nice! I also woke up with crazy-bad allergies...or so I thought. I picked up some allergy stuff that's worked for me in the past -- no dice. Turns out, I have a stinkin' cold! Dang those students and their germs. I haven't had a back-to-school cold in ages.
Anyway, enough complaining from me! How about a layout? Maybe a card? OK, here you go:
Yep, it's another little-me layout! I love these pictures, and I totally remember going apple-picking with my grandparents this day. I thought the photos went really well with the Apple Cider line from Imaginisce, which has all these lovely shiny accents on the papers and some really cute embellishments, like these:
Denim stickers! You can also see the enameled bits better here. I used a few of the stickers, along with some Thickers. Stickers and Thickers. nice.
This line has a few single stamps that coordinate quite nicely. Here's a card with one of them:
I'd originally stamped, die-cut (labels 1) inked (distress old paper) and watercolored the apple bushel for the layout, but the scale didn't quite work. So I used the sticker of the same image on the layout, and used the stamped bit here. This features leftovers from the layout (both dp and Bazzil swiss dot cs - love that stuff), along with another denim sticker. Oh, and for once you can actually see the glitter on the apples in the photo! Yay! I used Stickles for that. This card is 4x6 - is that even a standard size? Hm.
You could see both of these projects in person at Scrappy Chic if you wanted to. :) I have more projects from August's kit to show -- and I will, soon!
We went to the Detroit Jazz Festival yesterday (which was really awesome, even though I was spending hours in the chilly wind with a cold I didn't know I had). We took some nifty photos that I'm sure will make it onto future layouts. Anyway, I'm off to get some things done around the house. I did a major pantry clean-out already, but now the rest of the house is a wreck. How does that happen? Day-quil to the rescue....
