Loving Tim

I am pulling things out that I have not touched in ages and learning new things to do with cool.  It is like finding a lost piece of jewelry and getting the happy feel!

Loving it,

Obsessed with Scrapbooking: Jinger Adams Design Team Call - Easter Magic Cricut Bunny Card

This is my entry for the Design team.  My name is Sherri Levinton

These are brand new pages created for this try out.  I have been putting off doing my Hannukah pages as there is no paper any place that seemed suitable, so I tackled that problem on my own.

I had saved a postcard from the first ever public Menorrah lighting and wanted it on my pages.  The colors were bright and primary on a black back ground.  I started with my Cricut and Gypsy and took a image from STAND AND SALUTE and deleted some of the interior cuts.  I  then welded Menorrahs (JOYS OF THE SEASON) all around the circle (the top one being the largest)...I choose to cut it  from a blue sparkle paper to simulate the shining lights.  To bring the design to life, I choose a circle  design from PAPER LACE and deleted some of the interior lines that I would be covering anyway, choosing a traditional blue  paper from Close to my Heart, and  cut it at 10.  Once again I cut the exact size circle to place under the blue as a mat, chosing a yellow as traditional Hannukah is blue and yellow.  The title was cut from DESIGNER CALENDAR in  Spring green to match the palette from the opposite postcard.

The opposing page is centered around the postcard and I framed that in teal.  I took my pictures and matted each in another featured color from the card, a did some color blocking to make everything fit in well.  I took a scallop image from FANCY FRAMES and made a frame by placing a smaller image into a larger( 10 and 8.5), and cutting that from yellow. I placed that under the postcard so my photos would have a bit of a scallop border just peeking out.

I had really busy pages and left no room for my journaling  which was very important to this page as I added some history to explain the holiday.  So after typing it all in word, I converted it to a bold font, made it as small as possible and printed it out in  3 of the softer colors that I used on the page.  I alternated the strips and cut them very thin to fit the remainder of the blank space.

Lastly, the original cut from STAND AND SALUTE  had 3 stars and as it was the sparkle paper, placed the 3 on my second page to co ordinate the color.

The background paper is called BUTTER CREAM SUEDE and is a Provo Craft paper.

Jewelry...girls best friend

As many of my friends possibly know, I have added another craft to my belt about 2 years ago...I design jewelry, teach classes and sell.  I have designed for weddings, and casual, and taught many classes.  I love this as much as paper crafting and would love to host a party for someones birthday or teach individuals.

I am open for what your needs for all!

Happy St. Paddys Day

Just  sharing my layout for Gecko Galz with the new Ephemera.  I have been getting into the banner look and did it but tried not to make it too child like.  As St. Patricks Day is Saturday, I am sure we will go out and the little guy a bright green shirt so he will look GREAT in my layout,,,should have put the boys on the Ephemera,  but fell in love with the little "galz".

E mail me if you need instructions...the shamrocks took several UTEE is hard to see!
