Super scrappin!


I was at Target on Friday..one of those 'run in real quick and buy this certain thing and get out' kind of shopping trips and, as usual, I did not find what I was looking for but I did find some super cute stuff! You gotta love Target. I found some little scrappin kits on the end isle marked clearance. They were only marked down a buck-fifty, but that was enough for me! I picked up two. This page was a snap using it! The base paper is a sheet from the SU Ginger blossom packet. I used a rectangle of craft cardstock on the right side. I brushed a bit of white memory paint on the upper right for my journaling using a foam brush. I love this memory paint, it dries almost instantly! I kept my pictures full size for this one because I felt like it just flowed better. For the scallop border, I used my 1 inch circle punch to punch a bunch of circles out. I laid my base paper on my grid paper, lining it up with a line. I put a swipe of snail adhesive along the back edge of the base paper and then stuck my circles along that, using the grid paper as a guide to keep them all even. All the flowers and the 'fabulous' came from the cute Target kit. I just sprinkled them on and then went back and added a bit of Wasabi ribbon from SU. I roughed up the bottom corner of my craft paper and then used one of my chalk uption pads to brush a bit of color to that and to the scallops...I don't know if you can even see it here it is so subtle. This page was just so quick! It took me about 1/2 a hour to complete it.

Wow, what a cute page! I like fast! I'll have you know I actually made some cards last night! You're inspiring me! I like the idea of 'quick and cute'! Thanks for the great ideas and examples. I like that memory paint...I may need to order some of that!
You-know-who :-)
