Last week when a group of us went out for lunch we were a given a small pocket diary. One of the girls had just been to the Blood Bank, saw them & thought of me (I’m either a little late or very early – like a week), so she grabbed a handful. I’ve just got to remember to use it & take it with me.
Of course, as we all do, I decided that it needed a bit of a facelift, so I decided to “tissy” it up & make it my own. The girls won’t see it until our next catch up next month.
I decided to cover it with the “By the Shore” DSP. Then I thought I would add a few stamps, so I went with the matching “Seaside Shore” Stamp Set. I stamped the Bubbles & Seaweed onto a piece of Very Vanilla CS with Mint Macaron Ink & coloured a couple of them with my Blender Pen. This was die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits & layered onto a piece of Dapper Denim which had been punched with my 2″ Circle Punch.
The fish was stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS in Dapper Denim Ink & adhered to the Circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Thinking it needed something else, I then decided to place my name at the bottom. I die cut a couple of letters using “Little Letters” (retired) from scrap Very Vanilla & then from Dapper Denim. The extra pieces when layered on top of each other, make them stand out a little, especially when using DSP or have a busy background.
To finish it all off, Clear wink of Steller was applied to the letters & fish.
I think the girls will be very impressed when they see it, don’t you?
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
