High Heels

Yesterday I made this layout with Websters Pages "postcards from Paris" and a small piece of newspapersheet by K&C. The flowerborder at the bottom was cut out of a vellum sheet. Made a tag with a grommet and pieces of the vellum and the newspaper sheets.
Journalling on the tag says that Jacky is all dressed up for a christmas party at her school. She bought the High Heels just that afternoon together with a friend, it was a real bargain since the 2nd pair was only € 1,-.
But the people in the store forgot to remove the alarm. You can imagine the teenage-panic before she finally got to the party :)

Merry Christmas!!

I really had fun making this christmaslayout with, again, the beautiful G45 papers. The tree was inspired by Toni and created using a lot of leaf-punches, dear old Silhouette cut out the deer and the wooden fence is made of tapas-forks. Added a few roses, gems,  a leafribbon and a wooden star and some fake snow to complete it. The vintage image is from Heidi's blog. I picked it becaues of the four-leaf clover,  I have some dried ones at home and wanted to use at first. The shaped paper was also home-made and  the edges are decorated with liquid applique.

Update march 2010: I won Maries december challenge at artistic document with this layout!!

Candy Kisses

The 23rd challenge at Dare to use color had to be an all purple and grey project. Made this layout of my daughter Jacky while she was enjoying her candy floss in Disneyland, Paris. I edited the photograph, so that the candy floss is pink and the flowers behind her are purple again. The rest is all black&white. Used purple cardstock, dark purple Basic Grey and some grey design paper. Furhtermore a lot of flowers. The plain grey chipboardletters are stamped with a textstamp and after that layered with clear embossing powders. The big S is decorated with look-a-like sugar... Unfortunately I did not win the challenge, but who cares, I have another great layout for my collection!

Christmas project LGS #6

Let's Get Shabby challenge no 6 is all about Christmas. Usually not my kind of thing but I enjoyed making this item. A wooden starshaped tray,  which I painted white and decorated with G45 papers and all kinds of ribbons and christmas embellishments.  And doesn't this fake snow look real or what?
