(Jana here: This is so elegant. Love it. Adorable little girl too.)
My supplies are merely black, white, and red cardstock, Queen & Co. felt fusion - had since year 1, and photos from my camera. I apologize to any neat freaks for all the crookedy-ness - my trimmer has apparently bitten the dust and since I don't have spare cutting blades, I had to go all old-school and trim with scissors. Apparently, my accuracy has also bitten the dust. But, hey, it adds to that rustic, homey look - don't you think?
"This little girl loved reading; you could catch her almost any time – day or night – reading something. This photo was taken during the summer after a long day spent swimming at the pool. Yet, look at that sheer joy in the expression on my face. I’m reading, bliss bliss bliss. Probably a history book, my obsession with American History well documented in my “tween” years, yeah, because I was COOL like that (hee hee).
I read more than history, though. In fact, I loved everything and anything: Beverly Cleary books, Encyclopedia Brown mysteries, Nancy Drew, Charlotte’s Web, Louisa May Alcott, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, all the Little House books, Peanuts comic books, Justice League comics, the aforementioned American history books, U.S. Presidents, biographies of anyone and everyone! It was the thrill of cracking open a new book and losing myself in the pages until that last satisfying turn and then closing the new friend. Then searching for another…
I still have this chair, so worn and loved. It is the perfect reading chair; comfy, oversized, and very welcoming. Okay, there might be lumps in the seat and it makes a lot of creaking noises, but that simply makes it more like me now!..."
And here's how I did it: I used scraps from some other project. I stamped Versamark winter words onto the blue. Punched out the snowflakes. Glued them onto the winter words. Then trimmed them down to 1 3/4 by 1 3/4 inches. Yup, totally backwards. Then I cut 2 inch squares. Or punched 2 inch scallop circles. I punched the ticket corners on a few of them. AND THEN... I glittered. I had a blast. Then I glued Dew Drops onto the centers of the snowflakes.
Products are varied, but include: Hampton Roads Stamp for Studio G, EK Success snowflake and scallop circle punches, SU ticket corner punch, The Robins Nest Dew Drops, Winter words stamp is unkown, Kraft cardstock is SU, not sure about the blue, and Memento ink ( I think) ( If anyone wants to know the unknowns, let me know and I'll get my large area off the couch and check for you. )
