And I have an excuse! My inlaws came into town for a visit, so I had to keep the scrappy space cleared off so we could actually eat meals at the table together (for those of you who don’t know, I am a kitchen table crafter – okay, maybe a full kitchen crafter). And then came the little one’s Baptism – so the kitchen table still needed to stay clean. And now – head colds! All four of us at once! I think my craftiness is stuffed up there somewhere in my sinuses – blah!
Actually, the story or the in-law visit reminded me of some fun news I have to share. I have been sitting on a layout that I created over the summer because I received some fun news in September that it was being published! Canadian Scrapbooker sent me the good news, and now that they have published their Winter 2011/2012 edition, I can share the layout with all of you (especially those that might not be able to see the layout in the magazine).
I have to admit that I was a bit surprised the page was published – I often see so many details and embellishments on published pages, and this one is quite simple. Some pretty paper, a bit of cardstock, some ribbon and ink and voila!
The page is created with12X12 K&Company Ancestry.com paper – two pages in fact. I used one as the base for the page and fussy cut the gold detailing out on the second page to layer (here’s an interesting tip I learned – if you are layering on glittery paper, try using Glossy Accents as an adhesive – it’s so thick that it won’t soak into the glitter. YES! Another GA tip). There is a hidden journaling tag behind the smaller picture that has a little message just for them. And really, that’s it! So if you happen to see the magazine, check out page 50! You’ll see my very first published layout!
