PAGES FOR A FRIEND




Good morning all!! At least I hope it is....so far so good for me. I have been having problems with my right hand (I had surgery on it nine months ago, and it is acting up again!) and the doc has sworn me off cutting and playing with my craft stuff (yeah, right!) so I have been taking it easy. I felt really good though last night and so I decided to do some 6x6 pages a fellow demo and blogger was requesting to help complete a baby book she is making. I don't get to do baby stuff very often so this was really fun for me - although yes, my hand is pretty sore today! I am supposed to be going to a crop on Friday (I had to cancel last week because of my hand) and I really want to go because they are such a fun group of gals and I enjoy myself every time I go! So, I will do as much resting of the hand as possible and hope I get the green light from the doc on Thursday! So, anyway, on to the pages! I did two of them - Erin did provide the colors she would like to be used and I obliged since I had them all (sad, huh?!) They are colors I would not necessarily have put together myself, but I have to say, I really like them together! I used two different stamp sets, neither of which I have used before but have decided a like them ALOT!! The first, Just B, Mr. Brown delivered to me yesterday and I was so excited because I really wanted this set and waited waaaayyyy to long to get it! The other, Bundled in Love, I have had for awhile but have never had the chance to use it. I really liked it though and wanted to have it on hand for that occasion when I might need it - and here it is, LOL! All the supplies used are SU! with the exception of the Q-tip head I used to make the fluffy bunny tail - teehee!! The scallops are made with my slit punch so yep, they are SU! too (I got this question a couple of days ago!) I will leave you with the recipe below for both pages since the colors and stamps and such are the same on both pages. I hope you like them - they were definitely fun to make!!
Page Recipe:
Paper - Groovy Guava, River Rock, Blush Blossom, and Barely Banana card stock
Stamps - Just B, Bundled in Love
Inks - Groovy Guava, Barely Banana, Wild Wasabi Classic Stampin' Ink, Black Stazon, Apricot Appeal Stampin' Write Marker, White Gel Pen
Accessories - Wild Wasabi Double stitched ribbon, Mat Stack and Paper Piercer, Mellow Moss brads, Corner Rounder Punch, Slit Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds, tip of a cotton swab
Don't forget, there are still spots left to sign up for my swap so let me know if you are interested!

These are totally beautiful!! Love them! Sorry to hear about your hand, that's horrid that it interferes with crafting too :(
I won't do the swap, though I would like too - I just don't have enough Stampin up products!! I could get English Stampin up things, but I can't bring myself to pay the prices - they are SO much more expensive than the American ones!! (Though that's nothing new with craft supplies, full stop) Sorry about that little moan! I just look on U.S. craft internet shops sometimes and drool over your prices!
Have a great day anyway!

Denise... said...

Awesome pages. I was giving some thought to doing baby pages too. Cute, cute, cute! Now you need to rest your hand!!!

Dottie K. said...

These pages are so adorable. I feel for you with your hand. I hope it gets better. I just got my arm out of a sling and could do nothing for 4 weeks and am light duty for another 4 weeks. It was so hard doing nothing but it's so much better now that it's healed. I hope that you can go, you may just have to pace yourself and take breaks. Go admire some of the other ladies work when you need a break. :)

Many Blessings,

Not colors I would have thought of either but they look great together and I love these pages. I'm jealous you got to do baby pages. I just absolutely adore the bunny though. He's my favorite and love the q-tip tail, lol. Scallops look very pretty too. Rest your hand!
