I used some stuff from the kit, some things I'd purchased and a few things from my stash. I came up with 2 (YES 2!) pages to enter in the contest. I was thinking I'd just do one, but, well I'll explain that in a bit. Here is the first page.
I used a couple Glitz papers and some My Minds Eye (in the March kit) for the background. Then I cut out lots of cute little embellishments from the papers and used the Glitz giant rhinestones (LOVE THEM!). I added a Dear Lizzy die cut (happy), MME wood banner and enamel dots and a couple wood veneer arrows from Studio Calico. Here are some close ups of the embellishment clusters.
For the wood veneer pieces, I changed the color to match the woodgrain in the papers by adding some Tim Holtz distrees ink. I knew I wanted to use those pieces and was just lucky that I had an ink that matched.
Now for the second page.
I'm kinda lovin this. :) So, as I was going through and using different papers from the 8x8 Glitz paper pack, I noticed how cute all the strips were at the top of the papers. I needed to use them!! I used a couple on the 1st page, but set a bunch aside to use later on. I wasn't really sure what I was going to do with them. Then I saw this and this on Two Peas and was totally inspired.
I knew, too, that I wanted to use up some of my Thickers on a long title. I had to dig a bit, but I think these ended up working well. I hope I did the math right. :) I used an older picture, but it was what I had sitting on my desk, so in it went. This whole page was a kind of wing it and hope it works. And, just so you know, sewing on the pages still gives me crazy anxiety, but I'm learning to cope. :)
Well, that's it for now. I'll post some more projects I did for All Ready Memories, soon. Oh, and of course all the new stuff I'll make with my Gossamer Blue and Studio Calico kits. Hope I can use them up before the next ones get here.
