Scrapbook: Boot Camp with Project Life

My daughter, Aaron, created this page for her scrapbook club challenge for the month.

The rectangles are 1" x 1.5".  The next time I use this design, I might make them .25" bigger on each side.  The twine was too heavy for glue dots, so I used glue to hold it all together.

Birthday: Label Flip Card with Wetlands

Colors used:
Soft Suede
Bashful Blue
Very Vanilla

Stamps used
Wetlands

Tools used:
Thinlet Label Card Dies

I had to redo this card multiple times.  The original stamps I had chosen for the sentiment were not stamping well.  I finally gave up on those stamps and went to an old Stampin' Up! standby.

This seems to be a disadvantage to the card design itself.  If you make one mistake, you have to do the entire card over.  Even though I love the design of the label flip card, I don't think I have the patience to make many of these cards.

Birthday: Work of Art with Moose

Colors:
Baked Brown Sugar
Mellow Moss
Old Olive
Crushed Curry
Pumpkin Pie
Early Espresso

The stamps:
Work of Art
Walk in the Wild

This card was made for as a group card, the base need to be white (or light) so many people could sign the card.  Old Olive is the colored layer.

I stamped the colors before the moose.  When I was done, I had a green moose; I used a blender pen to make my moose less green.  Next time I may shadow the moose.

I love this card!

Birthday: Watercolor with Vellum

 Island Indigo, Wild Wasabi, and Whisper White are the colors used.  I used a base of Island Indigo with an embossed layer, also Island Indigo.  The Wild Wasabi was the base for the Whisper White. 

The white layer has randomly,  watercolor-stamped in both Island Indigo and Wild Wasabi inks.  I used the Happy Watercolor set of stamps.

The vellum was stamped with Versa Mark using Wildflower Meadow, and then embossed with white embossing powder. 

White ribbon and happy birthday were added to finish it off.  I enjoyed this card.
