US Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day to you US scrappy gals! And since it is memorial day, I'm on leave today because I work US days so that means more scrappy time for me. And my dearest friend LG is coming over today and we're scrappin! So excited! Yippeeeee!

And since its Monday today too, time for another sketch over at Scrapbook Challenges. Can't believe we're now at Sketch 202. When I started this January the count was only 98 if I'm not mistaken. Time flies so fast! :)

This time I tried the double page version...

Here's what I did. This is still using the Peachy Keen collection from Kaisercraft. The flowers are cut out the same way as the one I showed yesterday.  This is only my second attempt at doing a double page - the first one was when I was still starting to scrap (one of the stuff you gotta try when starting out right?).  I also used a big corner stamp from Fancy Pants - I really liked the color I chose for it. Perfectly complemented the colors of the paper.

Here are some close ups. I created three ATC-like cards to complete the 6-photo area because I only want the 3 photos. I used some masking and stamping on it.  And those leaves and flowers are so lovely I couldn't resist them so they were all cut and scored and folded for that raised look.

These are separate flower cut outs too that I just layered together.

This is just like the one I showed yesterday on the card. I also used some Prima stamps behind this background paper so it's not so empty.

Materials Used:
Papers: WRMK CS, Kaisercraft Peachy Keen Collection
Embellisments: Peachy Keen and Devonshire cutouts (flower, tags, journaling spot), Kaiser Pearls
Inks: Distress Inks, Colorbox Chalk ink
Tools: Prima stamps, 7 Gypsies Stamp, Fancy Pants Stamp, Fiskars border punch, Martha Stewart butterfly punches

That is it folks! Thanks for looking and have a great week ahead!
