The pea board has closed, this is so sad! :( I had been there 11 years! look4angel StuckOnPeas
This layout features my grandson Matthew when he went to the fairgrounds. The title was made from the actual signs at the fair, I just took a photo of them and cut them up to form my title. The Sunflower located at the bottom of the page was made using Linnie Blooms fabric "sunflower and leaves" shapes.
Here is a close up of the finished flower. I used spray mist ink to color the leaves and the flower, then hand sewed around the edges of the flower, and added the button. Super easy and fun. You can find more of their products, and creative samples here:
Today I am up with another post featuring the great products of Linnie Blooms! This layout features my grandson Matthew, what an angelic face for such a handful of a boy! It also features some of my favorite paper ever made by My Mind's Eye. Yes, it's some of their REALLY old paper from the Kaleidoscope collection, but I have it stashed up, and only use it for my very favorite photo's, and before you ask: Sorry, no you can't have what I have left of it! (If you are interested in seeing more/better My Mind's Eye layouts you can check out their Pinterest boards My Mind's Eye , or their Facebook page located Here and from there you can see their blog. )
On this layout I used the Linnie Blooms item marked number # 9, or #12 depending on how you look at the sample. I like to show the samples pointed in both directions so that you can see that it can be used as either an "Arrow", or a "House" shape depending on how you'd like it to appear on your layout! Super cool, and easy to use!~
For the title lettering I used chipboard letter's I think they were from K & Co., but I added the bling to them just to give them some added "pop". The ribbon at the top of each word was also added, along with a couple of brads. (Yes, I REALLY do use brad's on EVERY single layout I make!)
For my Linnie Blooms "Arrow" sample number #12, I first dyed it, then I took a sharpie marker and outlined it to match my layout. I love the fact that you can change these embellishments to match the color's or theme of your layouts! I hate having to search, and search for just the "right" color's of pre-made embellishments!
The glitter strip at the top of the layout is actually glitter tape, lot's of bling with no mess! YES!
To make his name at the bottom I used letter stickers. Easy and fun! I think this layout also deserves to be called a "Dollar Stretcher" layout as it was very easy, and cost effective to make.
This is a close up of the Linnie Blooms "Arrow" after it was dyed, and a sharpie was used around the outer edges of the arrow shape!
