About Me

I am a techno/gadget freak. I love almost anything that has to do with computers and software. I have an engineering background, but I haven't worked in that field for over 10 years.

The Brakefast Club Challenge # 22 - Primary Colours

Hi everyone!  Today I want to show you my project for the Brakefast Club challenge that ran last week.  I know I'm a little late with this, but this project took waaaaayyyy longer than I had expected.  The challenge was to create something using primary colours.  I love bright colours, and I thought this would be a great combination for a project that had something to do with kids.  So I decided to do a scrapbook page with pictures of my niece.  Here it is:

Stamps:  Beach Toys (I Brake for Digis)
Papers:  Coloured cardstocks (Recollections), Domtar Cougar 130# white cardstock (picture matts), Wausau Exact Index 110# white cardstock (journalling), Matte finish photo paper (Kodak), Glossy finish photo paper (Canon), Digital patterned paper (Summertime Designs)
Tools & Embellishments:  Craft Robo, Silhouette cutting files, Sharpie Markers, Zig Memory Writer markers, red, green, & gold Stickles, Mod Podge Dimensional Magic,  paper crimper, plastic wave template, foam letter stickers, rhinestones, pop dots

The title is some foam letter stickers I've had in my stash for about 5 years (finally used them - yay!) and all the other embellishments were cut with my CraftRobo. The sunglasses have Mod Podge dimensional magic on the lenses to make them shiny. I added a little bit of stickles on the rims to glam them up a little bit. The digi stamp was coloured with Sharpie markers and traced & cut on my CraftRobo.  I also created a white mat around it so it would stand out a bit and adhered it to the page with pop dots. The patterned paper is a digi paper from Summertime Designs and cut in a large square scallop on my CraftRobo. The little flipflops (Silhouette cutting file) have rhinestones glued to the strap at the toe. I used a plastic template to trace and cut the wave design, and I used my wavy paper crimper on the banner going across the page.  The journalling block is, again, another Silhouette shape.

Here are a few close up pics of the different elements on the page:

Well, that's all I have for today.  You can pick up the Beach Toys digi stamp in the I Brake For Digis shop. Its a great stamp to have for all those summer projects I know you'll all be creating here shortly. :)  Don't forget to grab the discount code in my sidebar before you head off shopping.  Another challenge starts today over at the Brakefast Club.  So pop on over there too to join in this week's fun.

Take care & talk to you later...
