My "Scrapbook Page" Gig

I am truly enjoying my DT gig for "The Scrapbook Page" here in town! It's been a lot of fun to push myself creatively and jump back into traditional scrapping. Last week the fabulous store owner, Carolyn, asked me to create a layout and a couple of cards with a birthday theme. (Hmmm...do I know anyone who might have recently had a birthday?) She typically will give me a theme and perhaps a piece or two of patterned paper as inspiration, and then lets me loose in the store to grab whatever else I might need to create the layout and cards. I'm in heaven. **sigh** I've learned that it helps to have a layout idea in mind when I'm "shopping" around the store, otherwise I end up at home wishing I had a few more embellishments. Sometimes I'll even bring some layouts from magazines to help get my creative energy going.

I am dropping off these little goodies this afternoon:




I had to do a close-up of this Tim Holtz "Trimmings" ribbon. It is my latest obsession. It comes in an off-white color and you can spray it with Glimmer Mist to create any color imaginable! I used "Tattered Rose" which just happened to match the cardstock in my layout PERFECTLY. I did the same thing with the ribbon on the "Blow Out The Candles" card below. The "Trimmings" package comes with a yard of 3 different styles of ribbon and they are all just yummy.
