Since we are celebrating one year of the Spellbinders Nestabilities I thought I would share a couple projects I made a while back using the Nestabilities. Both of these projects were made for one of my mom's friends. My mom & her friend had worked together for many years & my mom wanted to make her something really special for her retirement. We made a scrapbook for her, it had a few pictures in it but mostly it was filled with notes from co-workers (past & present). We made cards for them to write on and then my mom made sure everyone got one and wrote a little something. Then we made a scrapbook LO for each of the cards. It turned out really neat and it was fun to read what everyone wrote! I was really proud of my mom, she hasn't ever done any scrapbooking and I know she kept saying she didn't think she was much help but she pretty much showed me what she wanted for all of the LO's and then I put them together. I told her sometimes the hardest part about scrapbooking is coming up with the LO! I know I had a lot of fun with my mom and making the book together!! I think we did close to 30 page in the book.
Here is a picture of the front of the album.I started out with a piece of designer paper from DCWV and I adhered it to a piece of heavy chipboard. Then I added the brads. The center was done using the Classic and Petite Scallop Circle Nestabilites dies (S4-114 & S4-115). I cut out, embossed & air brushed the roses using the Rose Blossom Edgeabilites die (S4-044) and Copic sketch markers. The font that was used for the word friends is called Mystic. To finish it off I added stickles to the designer paper outlining all of the flowers and then also to the roses and around the edge of the scallops.
Here is a picture of the card that I made for my mom's friend. This was a really quick and easy card to make, some beautiful designer paper from Basic Grey (Stella Ruby-I Love this paper!!), a few terrific die cuts from Spellbinders and some ink, ribbon and a brad! The sentiment was cut out using the MegaNestabilities Classic and Scallop Rectangle dies (S4-142 & S4-143). The beautiful butterfly was made using the Butterflies 2 die (S3-146). I did a little bit of air brushing on the sentiment and butterfly using Copic sketch markers. Inked up the edges of the designer paper and added the embellishments. I also brushed over the entire card with gold perfect pearls from Ranger.
Thanks again for stopping by!! I really hope you are enjoying the Nestabilites Celebration and GUESS WHAT? Tomorrow (July 3) is my SNEAK PEEK!!! I can't wait to show you what I have been working on!!
