Happy second day of 2014. If you had a hangover, I hope it’s long gone! Haha! I barely even stayed awake til midnight on new year’s eve. Getting old is kind of a pain!
Since it’s Thursday, it’s time for the next Color Challenge over at MFP Speedy TV. This week our colors to work with are Yellow and Grey.
About a year ago, I made some page kits from stash in my craft room. I matched papers and cardstock, and added in all kinds of different embellishments. I knew I was about to become a Grandma, and my son and DIL had decorated their nursery in yellow and grey. I always thought the layout colors would be perfect to put some photos of my adorable little guy in. My layout today was actually made from one of those kits. Now I just need to get the pics I want to use on the pages, developed!
I’ve just about used up all the kits I made, so I think it’s time to sit down and make some more. They were AWESOME! It was so nice to just grab a kit and get to work…not to mention how easy it was to just grab a kit and go to a crop…no planning needed!
Since my kit included the majority of elements I used, I didn’t have to add a whole lot more to it. I decided to ink all my edges with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Antique Linen. It defined all the pieces and mats so much better, once I inked them. I also used the same ink to tone down the bright white paper that the two quotes were printed on.
I used the Mark’s Finest Paper’s Family stamp set and Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment on my page. I thought the one word just said it all!
Please join us for the Color Challenge this week. And remember, you don’t have to make a scrapbook layout if you don’t want to…any card or project using yellow and grey will work, and you might even win a cute stamp! You have until Next Wednesday at 5 pm PST to link up. See you there!
