Flying Bats, It is almost Halloween!

Hello everyone, Heather here.  Since it is almost fall  I felt it was time to go all out for Halloween, and since there are so many awesome stamps to choose from at Victorine Originals, I went with the Flying Bats and made them the center piece of my card.  

I started by stamping the Flying Bats (3047-F) in the top center area with black versafine ink and then heat embossing them with black embossing powder, which gives it an almost velvety look in person.  I then took Distress Oxide Inks in Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade and using a piece of masking paper I cut a circle out and inked the center, my circle die had a stitched edging and I was not sure if I would like it, but when done I found that I liked that added detail of color and feel it gives it an original look.  I removed the mask and spritzed with water, which gave it a little texture and made some of the water fade a bit.  I also used my Spectrum Noir Glitter pen and covered the moon area because everything is better with some sparkle.  I cut my panel out with a stitched rectangle die and added the panel onto an A2 sized black card base.  For the final touch I added some Nuvo Glow In The Dark drops in Banana Split.  I think I succeeded in having the bats stay the center of attention and made a rather clean and simple card overall.  
Thanks for joining me on the blog today, see you all again soon!

Hope Has Wings Card

Hello all!  Happy Wednesday.  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with this breast cancer themed card.
I started by stamping the wings from the VO Wings stamp set on vellum, heat embossing it and fussy cutting around them.  The card base uses paper from DCWV's Minty Lace and Paper Lace 6x6" stacks.  I used white satin ribbon along the top and double sided pink satin ribbon to make the breast cancer ribbon between the wings.
To finish off the card, I added a tag with a sentiment from the VO Wings stamp set and put a tie of Pink Midnight Trendy Twine on it.   A few dots of white Nuvo Crystal Drops and it was done!
Here is a look at the stamps I used:

The sweetest things...

Good crafty morning to you all! I'm back to share another scrapbook layout.

It was a beautiful day for a walk outside, surrounded by lush grass and beautiful, blooming flowers. We cherished these moments. My mother-in-law loved being outside as much as possible, and of course, my two-year-old also jumped at the chance to be outside and run and pick pretty flowers.

These memories are ones we will cherish forever; and I love having photographic copies for when my little one grows older and her memories fade even more. For all the money and time spent scrapbooking, being able to share these memories with both our children and cherish them with my husband and his family makes it worth every cent!

With two children and a busy husband and busy life, it's hard for me to find enough time to scrapbook. So, when I do, I like to knock out a whole bunch of pages at once. This is one way to do that. There are some super talented people out there who design workshops that turn out anywhere from 6-18 pages at one time. This layout was one of those workshops.

It can be harder to match pictures to a pre-designed layout, but I like the challenge of making it work. I get a thrill when I find the perfect pictures that make the layout looked like it was designed just for them.

Sometimes it's the little, fun embellishments that make your pages really pop. They highlight the memories the way they should be. Sparkly hearts, wooden tags and paper ribbon bows work so well with the stickers to make this page special.

I finished it off with the Sweetest Things sentiment. Looking back on those moments, I know those words are so true. It's hard to remember that sometimes when you're in the rat race we call life, but these pictures and layouts prove that point.

Thank you so much for joining me today and letting me share my precious memories with you. I'd love to hear from you!

Get your crafting groove on and join in on the creative fun with our new Pearls & Lace mood board! Check it all out on the Victorine Originals blog!

Have a wonderful week!
