As my chicks grow...

And as I find more time to get creative, I thought I would share some of my creations, as well as my time with others. Hopefully I will make new friendships and create lasting bonds over paper, adhesive, and embellishments. So sit back, relax, and let's share...have a cup of coffee, or tea, or in my case a and let's just have a blast creating, finding new projects to make together, and gathering our supplies for future endeavors!

Thursday, September 22, 2011 training!!! training!!!

Have you ever had those pictures that are just so special you held onto them for "the perfect paper"....or just had a hard time finding a paper you LOVED for a picture? Well, these were some of the ones I couldn't find paper that was "special" enough...until I got my box from The Robin's Nest...OMGosh, FABULOUS!!!!
So, onto my project for the day!
This was perfect for my pics of my (now 17 year old) daughter. These were taken by a friend when she was starting out as a photographer, and were INCREDIBLY special to me! She moved away shortly after these were taken, so they are even MORE special...hey, anyone in the St. Louis, MO area, PLEASE, look up Sara LePage Photography....she is FABULOUS, and GREAT with kids!!!
I started with the Princess Cardstock, so cute! The best part, the back is SOLID PINK! So, no trying to find a "perfect match" of another brand, YAY!!! I mounted my pics onto the back side of the princess cardstock and then mounted them onto the Princess side of the cardstock. I love The Robin's Nest  designer cardstock as it is heavy enough to mount everything on and still stand up, no mounting this onto another sheet of card!
I punched out (and notice there are no rough edges from being punched out!)the  Princess Castle chipboard and mounted it with foam mounting squares. LOVE the bling!
One of my faves about The Robin's Nest glitter cardstock, glittered shapes, and well, glittered anything, is that I don't end up with glitter EVERYWHERE! I love that it stays in place!
My title, Princess In Training came from the Princess Chipboard...there are 4 sets of words on there...others are Fabulous, Captured, and So Sweet. I LOVE these!!!
I added a princess tiara to one of the pictures, got it from the Princess Chipboard sheet as well!
Once again, I have to say, I love how easily these punched out! No rough edges to sand, nothing to trim, no extra work!

And there are a TON more "Princess themed" cardstocks (and a FABULOUS one with Princess written in the corner in glitter!), embellishments, and another of my The Robin's Nest favorites, Dew Drops, now available in a number of sizes and shapes! Be sure to stop back tomorrow and see what else we have in store for you!
