Right, nuff w/the apologizes....I'll start w/the Nikki Sivils stuff for September - I simply fell in love w/her gorgeous line "Boo-tiful" (such intense colors...!). Sure, it's quite Halloweenish, a thing that's not really commonly celebrated here in Norway, but who says you need to use it for Halloween-stuff only?
Here I used it for a photo of...uh...well, it's a testshot I did at a girl/scrap-trip and some of the girls (I know who it is!!) thought it was fun to ruin my testshots w/bunnyears ;p It's a "just for fun"-layout and I love the way it turned out :)
Ok, can't ignore the Halloween-aspect of the line entirely - so I made an Owl-candybag out from the 6x6" paperpads and the Owl-chipboards (yes, an owlshaped minibook made of chipboards - I know there's a lot of owl-lovers out there! And if you're not - well - they do make cool bags for Halloween uh? :P). The paperbag is sprayed w/Glimmer Mist (graphite).
Right! Movin' on to Fancy Pants! :)
I made this bookmark for my son who asked me if I could help him find a bookmark (he started reading books for real..books w/lots of tiny text and none or few pictures :p... this summer and I couldn't be more proud of the fact that he actually likes to read...yayy!!)
I used a piece of chipboard from the Mix-n-Match chipboards, a sheet of the edgepaper from "Rough and Tough" and a lot of leftover-rubons from both newer and older lines from Fancy Pants. Oh, and the kraft-alphastickers :) If you wanna see more ideas for this border-paper from the Rough & Tough line, head over here :)
I also created a little grocery-list & noteboard outta the 8x8" square Mixed Media books, a sheet of paper from the 8x8" pad from "The Daily Grind" and a bind-it-all. For more info and instructions, check out this post :)
Just do remember extra strong magnets. When I went to the craft-store to buy myself some magnets for this project, I found something called jewellery-magnets. And they were like, small, silvery & elegant and darn strong! Way stronger than the usual large, black magnets I remember from my childhood (which I also purchased by the way....having a small stack of magnets here should be somewhat handy hm? I think..).
And finally - a Pencil-Lines sketch (151, guested by Irene Tan) w/white corrugated cardboard (LOVES!), IKEA paint (LOVESx2), glimmermist (love how it's perfect to white corrugated cardboard..note to self tho: Spray first *then* add paint. Not the other way around. Rly.) and pieces of Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants, Bazzill and Scenic Route (the chipboard).
