Hello blog readers! Are you done salivating over those fantastic cards Liz posted yesterday featuring the upcoming Paradise collection? I don't know about you, but I for one can't *wait* to get my hands on it. Don't worry it will be in stores soon enough (psst ... we start shipping it in a couple weeks!), and for NOW I am here with another frosty fun project from our wonderful Winter Twig Guest Designer Jenny Chesnick - and of course you can find Winter Twig at your LSS right now!
Before I get to Jenny's project, let me share a little more LYB Q&A with you!
LYB: What is your favorite color (or colors) to use in your pages?
LYB: How long does it typically take you to complete a layout?
JC: About 45 minutes. Sometimes as fast as 30. I am a super fast scrapper!
LYB: Do you use any tools that are not specifically designed for scrapbooking?
JC: A dremel drill. I stole it from my husband! Along with his wire cutters.
LYB: What’s the oddest embellishment you’ve ever used on a page?
JC: A flyswatter, no kidding. I was in a contest and it was one of the items we had to use!
LYB: Do you scrap chronologically or out of order?
JC: I scrap whatever I want. I never even knew people scrapped “in order” until a few years ago.
LYB: Events or moments scrapbooker?
LYB: Sit down or stand up scrapbooker?
JC: I sit down. I want to stand up, but because I am so tall it hurts my back.
Flyswatter? Really? I would LOVE to see that layout, wouldn't you? And now onto Jenny's project. This CA-UTE little skate mini album-m-m-m!
Here's Jenny to tell you all about it!
I have wanted to make an Ice Skate mini album for a long time. I have been waiting and waiting for one to be made!! Well I got tired of waiting and decided to make my own. Little Yellow Bicycle paper is the perfect weight to create stand alone albums and pieces. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the Ice Skate. I layered two skates together to make the skate thicker.
I cut the blade part separately so I could use a coordinating color to create the blades. Once all the pieces were put together I used eyelet to set my punched holes of the album (just to be safe!) and I finished it off with some distress stickles to mimic ice on the skates. The skate is fairly large so I plan on using 2x3 or 3x3 photos in the blank backsides of each skate.
