SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST FOR THE FREEBIE.
All pictures are taken from a cell phone, bear with me please.
This post is going to have A LOT of pictures. It's not a card that I have to show you today. It is infact a scrapbook of sorts that I made for someone's niece.
I am using BLOGGER today to publish my post so that you guys can click on the pictures to get a clearer, BIGGER view.
Cute? I know! LOL
The sun, clouds, green land and fences are all hand drawn. The sun is too cute, all glittery and bright!
The flowers are punched.
This is what it looks like after you open it up.
The left flap is the back of the main page/cover. The pages on the right say the girl's name "SAMAA". All the letters of her name are on a different page which makes it 5 pages in all. The backside of all the pages is also decorated. The alphabets are all hand drawn, this is why both the A's look different.
Lets start with "S".
This girl, Samaa.. her favourite colors are pink and yellow, so I tried my level best to keep those two as the main colors. I sprinkled sequins quite generously on the letter! This silver sequin has a tint of lilac and pink.
Backside of "S":
Thanks to TLC for all the sentiments. Without it I would not have been able to make it so interesting. I found almost all related sentiments on that blog. They go SO WELL with the pictures.
On to "A":
Okay, I LOVE this pic of hers! Its FABOOSH! And check out how well the sentiment goes with it! Thanks to Paulette!
Do you love the silver frame??? Totally rock chick thing! :o)
Used purple sequins on A.
Now back of "A":
This picture was probably taken at some Halloween party... Do you like the embossing on the frame? It is not the candy cane folder (which I don't have and would LOVE to get my hands on) but the distressed stripes one.
On to "M":
The embossed background and the bold text is highlighted by holographic white glitter. I made this project a little more than 2 months back, don't remember the stamps... the sentiment of course is from TLC.
Backside of "M":
The moon (crescent) and the cute cat are digi stamps. The sentiments again are from TLC.
On to "A":
Here I used glitter pen (gel pen) to highlight the embossed background. The letters "AWSAMM" are the initials of the girls in picture... it's her gang! LOL If you pronounce it in a sweet sixteeny kinda way it goes like "awesome". The sentiments are TLC and Meljen's.
Backside of "A":
Again, I have highlighted the embossed designs with a yellow gel pen. The TLC sentiments are quite generously coated with holographic white glitter.
On to the last "A"
This is Samaa's aunt. The pink and red blooms are hand drawn.
Backside of "A":
This page has pictures of her childhood, her grandparents, parents and aunt. Here too I have highlighted the positive embossed parts with gel pens of respective colors.
On to the last page, the inner side of back page of the cover.
Hope you guys like it! I spent quite a lot of time making this. I do like the end result. But I don't think that I will be making this again!! LOL Too much work!
Something I made to use on a page that I am making for someone... she is not 40, not even close... But she'd like to stay 40! LOL She sure is FABULOUS though!
