Some Webster's Pages Projects

......for a Design Team submission....actually 2 because I am applying for both the paper team and the digital team :)  I just hit send for both...wish me luck!  What a dream it would be to be on either of the teams.  I love love love the quality of Webster's Pages products, the papers are so thick and nice, the graphics so rich in color, the ribbons and trims so unique, along with the the buttons and die for I tell ya!!!  I had a blast working with both the papers and embellies and the digital files for the past few days.  I have met the owners at the CHA  shows and I have to say that they are definitely one big family and actually enjoy each other, now thats what I am talking about!

So let me share with you the projects I created for this call.  The first project is an antique oak printers tray that I got a while back on ebay.  It measures about 16 x 12 or so.  I did nothing to it before altering it, I love the rustic old look of it.  I used a combination of papers from the Garden collection and the Seaside collection.
 I call it Live, Love, Laugh and I included my grandkids photos because they make me smile...and live, love laugh!  I framed their little pictures with mini little chipboard frames and dressed the little chipboard people in Webster's Pages clothes after I glimmer misted them.

 I created the little yo yo flower on the right and added lots of trim, I really love the little button stacks!
 A couple of Epiphany Crafts Epoxy hearts and an old old thread bobbin (its wood) are the perfect additions to the little squares.
 I added the kids names with my favorite mini letters of the moment from October Afternoon.
 I made a little distressed circle flower on the left and the title in various different alpha's, I just love the corrugated cardboard on from Rusty Pickle!
 And here is a side view so you can see the character the antique printer tray has, I just love it!  I added lots of trims on the top and bottom and even on the edge of some of the dividers.
And now I have a great altered antique printers tray that I will cherish for years to come!

I decided to do two layouts for the call as that is my strong suit, gotta stick with what you do best, right?  Again I used papers from the Garden collection and the Seaside collection.  The first layout is called Oh! The Possibilities and features my grandson Trevor.  I captured this photo at the park about a week before Christmas and I just love the look in his eyes!
 I used burlap to mat the photo along with some Bazzill cardstock and then stitched it down.  I added a little ink to the burlap as well.

 Along with the various trims and Webster's Pages Quote cards I added some custom buttons made with my Epiphany Crafts Button Studio using the same Bazzill cardstock I used to mat the photo with.  I also did alot of layering and added flowers and buttons for dimension.
I love how this came out!

My next layout features my grand daughter Jenna....acting silly for the camera, which she does alot.  I love this photo because it really captured her spirit of the moment!!  This layout is called Our Crazy Woman....because that is what she is!!
 I created the little paper roses and added the Webster's Pages sparkles to the center.  I love how they fit right in on the strip of paper that I edge punched.
 I cut the little banner triangle so that I could bend them up like they were flying and added a pearl trim as the string holding the banner flags.  Lots of trims and punched butterflies give lots of texture and I used lots of pop dots and Liquid Scrap Dots from Helmar for added dimension.
Lots of sparkle and shine make this project a total stunner!!

Since I am both a paper and digital scrapper, but not a hybrid scrapper, I decided to apply for both teams...hopefully I will get a spot on the team one way or another, lol!!  For all three of my layouts I used the Hollywood Vogue digital collection.

This first layout called 6 yr old smile features my grand daughter Jenna, in a photo taken right after she lost her two front teeth.  It didnt last long so I am glad I captured this look!  I copied the background paper onto the top layer and then changed the opacity and blending, I think it gave it a great effect.  The title was created using the Problem Secretary font, giving it a different color stroke and embossing it a bit, I love how it looks like chipboard!
 This next layout is a fun multiphoto layout featuring my family at various times during the year.  I turned all the photos sepia and love how it coordinated with the colors of the papers and embellishments.  I burned the edges of the blue strip of paper to give it the inked look.

 As soon as I saw the herringbone pattern on this paper I knew it had to have a black and white photo and one of my daughter Katy.  Its just her.  I did some extracting from other papers for the strip on the left side.  I burned the edges of the paper strips and mat and behind the photo.  The journaling block was created from a different sheet of paper, cropped and resized.  The font there is Fashion Victim and was a perfect match.

Happy New Year to all!!
