Her Craft Kre8tions ~ Scrapbook Stamp Society Image


Welcome to June's project for Her Craft Kre8tions. We have been very fortunate to have a wonderful sponsor this month that Scrapbook Society,, has given us this beautiful design, to showcase our creativity.

Of course there are rules that we implemented that the creativity could finish Marie as they wanted BUT (ok, there is always a BUT!!), it needed to be a journal with an additional image on the inside.

Here are some pictures of my altered journal . . .

This is a picture of the full journal.  I received this fantastic paper in the mail from my wonderful sister in law.  I thought it would be perfect for this journal.  I love the antique chandeliers.  The muted pink colors are perfect for M' Lady. 

Here is a close up of M' Lady.  I colored her with my Prisma colored pencils and then used a lot of bling to highlight her dress.  Thankfully, I can pick up these gems for $1 at Wal-Mart. 

I needed some bling for the side of the journal.  I know what I wanted, but when I dug through my stash, I did not have what I wanted in pearls, only colors what would clash terrible with M'Lady.  So, I decided to make my own.  I have the hard plastic templates that I bought when I was learning to do stitching on cards.  I used a sharp pencil and made marks where my pearls needed to be.  I then dug out the tiny pearls from Stampin' Up.  The pearls were all in one string, so I took my craft knife and cut each on apart then used a quilters pin to apply them to the purple binder strip on the left edge.  It is not perfect by any means, and I wish I would have had tinier pearls for the top part, but I still think it looks okay. 

Here is the line up for you . . .

Didn't I tell you that this is one creative group!!! Oh, yes, we even have some phenomenal blog candy which we were going to have last month BUT (there goes that word again) Miss Lynne had been in the hospital - we are going to have the "kick-off" blog candy for this hop!!!! Thus we have Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge for one lucky winner!!!

Also, there will be a gift certificate to Scrapbook Society - SWEET!!!!

Finally, Lynne Kirsch has an altered journal for one lucky winner as seen below!
