Supplies used: Paper Salon, GDC Studios and American Crafts patterned papers; Crate Paper, K&Company and unknown chipboard; American Craft Thickers (chipboard); SEI paper die cuts; Basic Grey woolies; VersaMagic, VersaColor, Colorbox and Memories inks; miscellaneous doilies, white copy paper.

Jessi says: “The chipboard frames were naked chipboard; I coloured the frames by using various inks, layered over one another. For the green one, i started with a pea green, inked over with an olive green, then blotted on and around the edges with a turquoise and finished the edges with a chocolate brown. Same technique was used for the orange frame…i started with a yellow, inked over with an orange, then inked around the edges with a brown.”



Supplies: Authentique patterned papers; miscellaneous patterned paper scraps; Fancy Pants, My Mind’s Eye and Pink Paislee chipboard; American Craft Thickers (chipboard and foam); AdornIt and Recollections letter/number stickers; Studio Calico wood veneer; Basic Grey paper die cut; May Arts ribbon; Stampin’ Up! ink; Tim Holtz foam blending tool.

Holly says:  “I found it fun to mix a variety of manufacturers’ chipboard for this layout. Much of what I had in my chipboard stash was already patterned, so I used it as is.  I did use ink and a foam blending tool to apply ink for adding colour to the blue and green stars.

This page features Vanessa fresh out of the pool after her first relay triathlon.  She was the swimmer for her team, had just dressed and thrown on her favourite sweatshirt, and was pleased with her results.  The good news is they won the relay event that day.  The bad news is that my cell phone was stolen right after the event, and I had taken many of my photos of her with it and lost them all.  This is the one shot I took of her that day with my big camera, so thank goodness I have it!”

  1. Jessi and Holly, thanks for the beautiful inspiration!

    Jessi, I love what you did with the frames and that you chose to highlight the title and ice cream cone with them. Also, the doilies split into three added a lovely balance to your page.

    Holly, this is a fabulous photo of Vanessa! I really like how you are extending your alpha stash by using two uppercase SS’s with the lowercase. The dark blue checked page was the perfect backdrop for the stunning photo! Thank goodness you brought the big one that day!


I'd love to hear what you think about this!
