Last week, us lucky demonstrators received the newest mini catalogue due for release at the beginning of April. Let me tell you, it is a doozy! There is so much in there that I want to buy, my wish list is as long as my arm! Anyway, there is a layout on page 29 which inspired me to create this page of my little Logan dressing up over the past 5 or so years.
I really love combination of elegant eggplant and sahara sand together. When I first envisioned this page, is was full of pink, flowers and loads of bling, but it ended up quite simple, and the pictures speak for themselves (at least, that is what I tried to achieve). On to a couple of cards. These next 2 cards were inspired by a set made by Julie Bettencourt and the fabulous sale-a-bration sets that are available FREE with any $100 order (see side bar for more details). I am not all that happy with my first card. I was trying to make it more masculine, but I think it just turned out plain and boring! lol!
I used a combination of brocade blue, close to cocoa and very vanilla, along with the 'whimsical words' set and the candles are from the top of the cake in the 'happy moments' set. I like the feminine version a lot more. Again, the sentiment is from the whimsical words set, but this time I used the candle from the cupcake in crazy for cupcakes. I also punched out a few flowers using the five petal flower punch, distressed all of the edges and attached together with one of the cutie-patootie flower brads that were in the last mini catalogue. I used cameo coral, close to cocoa, very vanilla and a little old olive for the leaves as well as some choc chip ribbon.
