Just Chillin'

Just Chillin'
When I read the "homework" assignment for the Album Retreat and saw the 'Just Chllin' title for a set of pages, I thought of "relaxing" as I selected my photos.  After realizing that it was intended as a "snow" page, I decided to still use the same photos.  So the snowflakes on the page, along with the title and the relaxed photos imply a double meaning for the word "chillin."

Since I chose not to stamp additional snowflakes on the page, the only stamping is the border image from the One-Way Borders stamp set using Ruby ink.  Polka-dot paper from the Sparkle & Shine kit is used for the pennant photo frames which were cut using the Artbooking cartridge. 

A technique that we used several times throughout the scrapbook pages was placing the Lagoon Houndstooth Washi Tape on a piece of ½" wide White Daisy cardstock.  This creates an embellishment strip with a white opaque background instead of the muted transparent look normally seen with Washi Tape.

Considering that the page was designed for pictures in the snow, a banner with the word 'snow' was included.  When I returned home, I searched the Artbooking Shape Index and was pleased to find the word 'sweet' in the same style banner.  So I cut it using Lagoon cardstock with a similar height to the 'snow' banner and used it for my page.  Some texture was added to the Whisper cardstock along the bottom of the page using a Spray Pen mixed with Slate reinker and water.          

All of the pages for the Album Retreat were designed by the CTMH Art Department and include multiple cuts from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge as well as papers from different CTMH kits with a mixture of embellishments and stamp sets.  Even though each page is very detailed, it was fun and challenging to create each of them.  Click on any of the photos for an enlarged view.

Be sure to follow my blog to see all of the completed pages which I will be sharing throughout the month of November. 

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
