Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and looking forward to summer as much as I am. My sister only has two more weeks left of school, my nephew has three, and I started the count down. Being a school teacher, she usually takes summers off which means summer vacation for me as well, and as you can tell I'm so looking forward to that.
I have a fun week ahead of me including two baking classes, a haircut, and well, as you could have guessed, some projects to share with you. Today was my day to post over at the Hybrid Chick blog, so make sure to check out full tutorials there. Along with the tutorials, I'm giving away a fun chipboard album, so make sure to head over there to see how I put these projects together.
I used an Avery iron-on transfer sheet along with Mari Koegelenberg's What's Cooking? The Collection kit. I have four of these bags and they are what I take with me to the grocery store. I've been meaning to pretty them up a bit and this is what I came up with.
The next project is a tag. I have also been meaning to make some personalized tags to hang from scrapbook bags, carry~on luggage, and my camera bag...this is what I came up with.
I'm in love with Maya Roads Avocado Metallic Mist right now, so just to warn you, you'll be seeing some more projects with it and other fun colors as well. Again make sure to head over to the Hybrid Chick blog for the tutorials on these two projects.
Today is also my turn to post over at the Unity blog...can't believe my guest design time is coming to an end...it's been a fun ride that's for sure! The card I put together is also for this week's Technique Lover's Challenge over at SCS (TLC274) which is called Black Magic. Here's what I came up with using this month's Unity Stampin Store Kit, Naturally You.
The technique is simple: you stamp your image on black or dark card stock with white ink, heat set it, color your image with watercolor pencils, add some accents with a white gel pen, and decorate as you wish to finish off your card!
I had a lot of fun with the little details on this image and wanted to finish it off with a fun fun ribbon treatment. Hope you'll give this technique a try!
