Scrapbook Layout - ALL ABOUT ME- Kimberley

Hello all-

Today's post is a layout that I created for the Embellishment Magazine Color and Layout Challenge.  This was so much fun to make because I got to create a layout where I was IN FRONT of the camera as oppose to BEHIND IT!!!  The layout represents just some of the things that I like....

If any of you create layouts, ask yourself when was the last time you were the subject of the layout?  If you cant even remember, it's too long and now it's time to switch things up...LOL!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

MANY Thank You's

Hello all -
Happy Tuesday!!!  Here in NYC it is about 27 degrees but it feels like 10 degrees.....and's cold out here!!!!  What's the weather like where you are?  This is a perfect day to have some hot chocolate and do some crafting....right?...LOL!!!

Today's card is what I created for the HeroArts December Challenge.  You have to check out their blog  if you haven't already.  It is AWESOME!!! One of the themes is creating something shiny.  My "something shiny" is the label die cut.  I covered it completely with VersaMark ink and then with clear embossing powder.  I heat set it and after it cooled down, I embossed it again using my CuttleBug.  I love the way it came out.  This is such a quick and easy way to create shiny embellishments for your projects.  You gotta give this a try...and I assure you, you will love the results.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to leave me some comment love!!!  It is so cool to hear from you.  Stay warm..and enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!!!

Pattern Paper is back.....for me that is..

THANKS , originally uploaded by kimba7669.

Hello all-

I am having some technical difficulties w/my computer.  I am in the process of trying to resolve the issues, so please know that I will be back later today with an appropriate post.  Thanks for your patience.

Thanks for stopping by!

Okay everyone....after all the computer/internet issues, I think I am in the clear...(shh..can't say it too loud 'cause I may jinx myself)  Now, about the card I created.  One thing that I am really getting into lately that you may think is I'm sorta "late" is covering the front on the card w/pattern paper completely.  Usually what I do is use part of the pattern paper and pair it with a solid piece of paper and build the card from there.  But this way......I am really loving.  It's quicker and allows me to keep things real simple and to really think about how best to pair a stamp w/the paper.

This card, I did just that.  I covered the front of the card with pattern paper and inked it up using Distress Ink.  I added a scallop edge and inked that up as well and stamped a simple "Thank You" sentiment.  So, don't laugh because I am a little behind...LOL!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
Kimba :)
