Blue Shabby Love

Hi my beloved readers! Today I have a new project for you… A scrapbook page! I’ve managed to create a few things with remainders and punches. I love card making, but whenever I take a good pic or when I come across one on my computer, I feel the need to scrapbook. The inspiration for today’s project comes from a color board at the Craft Hoarders Anonymous’ current challenge. And I just happen to have a paper pad on that color palette!

The picture I worked with was taken long, long ago. My son was still a little baby and he was taking a nap with my sister. He loves her! Even now he just wants to hang with her whenever he visits my mom’s house. I edited this picture to give it a vintage look.

There are some details that I hand cut from original die cuts, for example: the large corner flourish and the smaller tag corners are hand cut from Spellbinders dies. Another trick was, I created both flowers with the same sunflower punch. The vellum flower for instance was created with seven punched sunflowers each of them folded in half and then rolled to create a bud. Oh I almost forgot, this was a 12″ by 12″ page, so to give it a twist a reaped it and turned the negative facing the front to create a contrast line.

And that’s it! This is a shocking color change considering all of February’s pinks and reds, right? Anyways, hope you like it!
