Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 56!

     Another fun challenge at PaperCrafter's Corner!  I'm so enjoying this place!  I do hope more Fiskateers and displaced Peas will join us. 
     I'm making a gift set of cards for a young lady and decided to incorporate the challenge into that project.  I lifted much of the layout from a blog I enjoy by Stacy Cohen. I liked the idea of bright colors against a black background and went with that.  I hope you like it.  I hope Madison likes it.  :o)

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 55!

     Wow!  PaperCrafter's Corner didn't have a Magazine Monday last week, and I got nothing done!  If I'm ever going to get caught up on my scrapbooking, I guess I neeed to find another challenge or two.  That seems to be the motivation and inspiration I need. 
     So here's my submission.  I wanted to go big on the triangle theme, so I started with scoring some Core'dinations cardstock on the backside.  I sanded it gently on the front for my background.  The rest is pretty obvious.  I chopped up DGD's pictures and put them back together, mostly.  I also used some extra cardstock triangles, embossed some of them with a LifeStyle folder, and sprinkled a few rhinestones around.  I love rhinestones.  It's hard to stop!  The border punch is by Fiskars.  The title is Sizzix Mango Tango.  The journal box is from Sizzix, too.  I heat embossed it with detail silver powder, but it may not show here.  :o)     Here's the inspiration from PaperCrafter's Corner.  I think you can see where I got my inspiration.  Thanks for looking.  Next time, I hope you'll play along.

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 54!

     I was beginning to think I wouldn't get to play along with PaperCrafter's Corner this week, but here it is late Saturday afternoon, and I did it!  Yay!  This is a fun place for inspiration, so I do hope others will join in. 
The magazine given for inspiration this week provided lots of ideas.  I had a hard time choosing just one, but ended up going with the tropical color scheme.  Here's the inspiration: made a 5" x 5" card using the sketch from DCVW's June Stackaholic challenge and used DCVW Citrus Stacks, both print and solid.  Lots of glitter on these papers.  Love that!  The sentiment is cut from 2 DieVersions dies.  The flowers are dies from La-La Land, the leaves, from Cheery Lynn Designs.  It's all just in time for my dear friend Pat's birthday.  I hope to see her at church tomorrow and gift her with some of my homemade olallieberry jam.
