Getaway {Bramble Fox & CSI Case File No. 276 & Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday}

Bramble Fox and CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration teamed up this month, as they're sponsoring CSI. Here's the layout I created for Case File No. 276, using some of their beautiful Perspextives (and this is also a Paper Issues Scraplift):

And here's the Case File. I obviously used the kites as my main inspiration, but I also used several clues from the Evidence list: stripes, hearts, clouds, sun, bows, string, bling, buttons, and pinwheels.

I always love the Scraplift Sunday challenges over at Paper Issues, and I was in love with Stacie's amazing layout, so I had to play along with that too:

Here are some details: I started out by applying watercolor to my background using the packaging technique. Adhesive foam gave my clouds and some of the other elements some lift for a light an airy feel and also to float them over top of the Perspextives, which have lots of dimension. I raided my embellishments for pink, yellow, and aqua items to decorate my page. I had so much fun adding bits and bobs to my page. The black lettering on the background paper are really old rub-ons by Making Memories. They're at least a decade old but still rub on like butter.

The page was going in such a whimsical direction that I just had to use this Crate Paper pom-pom frame.  It's super thick, so I had to adhere the bike with a double layer of pop dots. I still have a gazillion rhinestones, so I was happy to use that clue. I love the sparkle they give this page. I wish that trend would come back.

I hope you'll come play with us at CSI and Paper Issues too. You could win some Perspextives, as Bramble Fox is donating a gift certificate to a lucky player this month. And Paper Issues, which has loads of awesome products, donates a gift certificate to their store every month!

Love You Lots {Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday}

I made a new page to give to one of my students this weekend. It's for Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday. Here's my page:

Everyone on the Paper Issues Design team fell in love with Cassie's amazing layout, and we were thrilled that it became a Scraplift Sunday. I love how beautiful Cassie's looks on the woodgrain paper, but I didn't want to TOTALLY copy her, so I tried a plain white background, but the rainbow heart just didn't stand out enough for me, and when I tried it on black, I liked it so much better than the white.

Here are a few details. I used ALL scraps from my scraps drawers, some of them very old. I don't have a big heart punch, so I cut these all on my Silhouette. It took a lot of planning and calculating. This thing took hours and hours to make, but it was worth it when I saw my student's face this morning when she came in and saw it sitting on her desk. She said, "I love rainbows and I love hearts and I love unicorns!" I cut out a big heart with cardstock and assembled the small rainbow hearts. That way, I could lift the whole thing up on adhesive foam. You can see that my title says Love and not Tove (I didn't realize until just now that the rainbow's shadow in my main picture made the L look like a T.

I added some puffy stickers and enamel dots and phrase stickers so my student would have lots of little things to discover.

I hope you'll come play along with this challenge or one of the many other fun challenges at Paper Issues. You may just win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store! Use my code Debbi (no e on the end), and you'll get 20% off your entire order!
