Jenns Paper Obsession

More stuff :)

Today is my last official day doing just paper scrapbooking! Yes, I have taken the bait, and I am getting a program tomorrow to (hopefully) catch up on my scrapbooking and get me up to date!

Here are my 2 latest!

I love this sketch! Can be found here! That was the inspiration for this page! I used the sugar rush line from Basic Grey (i'm such a sucker for my BG!) I also used a ticket from Jenni Bowlin. I inked the ticket as well as all of the edges for the flowers with Tim Holtz distress ink (worn lipstick, spiced marmalade, and firebrick) and of course, I used stickles! My letters are thickers by American Crafts, and my ribbon is generic from Walmart I bought from when I first started scrapping (which my one year anniversary is coming up! one year of continuous scrapping!) I love those flowers! Those were my first lollipop flowers, and I simply adore them! Make them yourself! I got the tutorial from Helen Croft's Blog. She is wonderful! Oh, one last comment on this LO, I put 2 small brads thru the holes in the buttons, and it came out kinda cute (yes, i'm a little slow on that!) it reminds me of the top of a cupcake!

More Basic Grey! haha! This was done using the Basic Grey Indian Summer line. I never use this many pictures on a LO, but was inspired by yet another sketch (my 3 loves, sketches, basic grey, and these new lollipop flowers! ok, five loves... perfect pearls and glossy accents!). You can find the sketch Here! Ok, so information! I used the fiskar's border punch and punched the edge of the pink/white paper, put a strip of another peice of paper under it, then put that over the red paper! and viola! the background :) the journaling is done on a journaling paper from this line with a transparency over it. Take a look at the lollipop flower! wow, those are too cute! I love them! I played with my flower more this time though. First I inked all of the pieces, then I rubbed perfect pearls all over the purple pieces to make them shimmer. Then I put some stickles on the rim and let them dry! I love these flowers because if you do it right, IRL they look like they are fabric! It's a wonderful texture type of look. I put a rub on flourish behind my title (flourish from indian summer) and the letters are from thickers called black daiquiri. (Yes, I know, i'm missing a h, but I lost it! haha)

Anyways, I hope all of this helped to inspire everyone! Now go make some flowers from Helen's blog! they are awesome!
