Well being cooped up like a hen in a pen (wahaha it rhymes!!) there's nothing I can do for Father's Day except scrap!! And so I scrapped with a vengeance. Suffice to say I only completed the last of the 5 LO I wanted to do up at exactly midnight, the last minute of June 21st. And I haven't shown him the last one yet as he's gone to sleep with S. Oh well. At least I made my goal! Sheesh!
a. Two Pieces of My Heart
This one's also done for Laine's 9.90 challenge (scrap an LO with products of less than $9.90).
Lazy to retype, shall just copy and paste my challenge entry:
This is completely made up of recycled packaging materials!! Except the 7Gypsies 97% complete Baby stickers ($4.90) which I added at the end, forgetting I wanted to do all recycled |||-_-\.
Background is from a USPS Flat Rate box (stamped with various Inkadinkadoo, Purple Onion Designs and See-D's stamps in Versafine Deep Lagoon, Crimson Red and Onyx Black, distressed with Old Paper and Walnut Stain Distress Inks), blue paper is backing of Prima Felt DeVines (distressed with Orange Marmalde Distress Ink), photo mat is Making Memories Noteworthy ribbon card (beige) and PageFrames Designs (white). Transparent heart is the backing of Prima Say It With Crystals Swirls (stamped with assorted Unity Stamp Company stamps in Stazon Cherry Pink), title fonts are die cut (QK: Stardust Grand Complete Alphabet) from American Crafts Remarks Accents Clear Stickers Book 1. Large bracket from Fancy Pants Designs Mixed Media Square Book packaging, ribbons saved from gift boxes and red rope from clothing tag. Doodling done on the "2 pieces", "Priority" and outlining of the die-cut letters.
Next 4 LO are all in the same style (all done using SL August 2008 Mini kit!) and I am proud to say I've "destroyed" one kit doing this. Hurhur. One down, many more to go LOL.
