Hello friends! If you are following along with the blog series 31 Pages in 31 Days, I thank you! I hope you're loving the page inspiration posted every day as I do my annual month of immersion-style scrapbooking.
And if you're strictly a cardmaker--there's plenty of ideas to be found in the page details, but take heart: we'll return to our "normal programming" in September! And I have all new toys from the Stampin' Up Holiday mini catalog to share with you, too!
Today's inspiration layout didn't photograph well... the silver and black were just too much for my camera to know where to focus. But we can still get the idea as we walk through the various elements. The paper is from the Simply Elegant specialty pack and dusk or twilight time in the evening was my target. That pretty time of day when everything goes silver, and you can see the moon rising, just before night steals the last of the light.
My favorite part of this layout, besides that gorgeous cream and black leaf print pattern, is the Sprig Punch. I use that thing ALL the time! It's just such a fast way to add textured detail, and easier and quicker to use than a die. I use it for wreaths, swags, photo corners, vine border edges, and of course to make punched or stamped flowers pop with dimension. I've even used it to make "seaweed." So versatile.
I promised you a GIVEAWAY today and here it is!
One lucky person will win a metallic goodies bundle with paper, cardstock, vellum, trim and embellishments sent to them in the mail! You will love playing with copper, silver, gold, champagne and pewter bling to match any project you can dream up!
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post. US only, sorry! Tell us what kind of metallic you reach for most--silver or gold? I'll draw a name at random and the metallic bundle will arrive at one lucky scrapper's house by the end of the month!
That's it from me today--it's Sunday and a much needed day of rest. We had quite the week. One good thing is that my thumb/wrist finally seems to have turned a corner and started getting better instead of worsening! I am so happy! A bum wrist on the dominant hand of a girl who crafts for a living is a real downer!
Have a relaxing rest of your day! See you back here tomorrow for Day 16.
Don't forget to leave a comment to enter to win the metallic bundle!
