Bleaching

Posted by emileehathaway on April 27, 2009

Here is the other card we made at club last Saturday.  I had never really tried bleaching before, but saw a tutorial on the SU! demonstrator website and really liked the results, so this is a case of that tutorial.  I love the effect of the bleach.  You know I feel that more is more and cards can always use MORE.  I also hardly ever only have one layer on my cards, but I thought the bleaching added so much to it that the card looked awesome just the way it was without adding to much.

Hope you all had a super weekend.  It snowed at my house … I really, really wish spring would come and stay instead of coming and going.

Have a super day Ladies!

She flaked out … again

Posted by emileehathaway on April 24, 2009

Ok – so it has been FOREVER since I have posted.  I apologize for that, but hopefully you understand that when life gets busy, family comes first 🙂

I have lots of fun things to show you!  But first thing up on the agenda is what we made for club last Saturday.  One of my ladies requested a class on chipboard, like a year ago, so I finally got around to it last Saturday.  Here is what we made, they could choose between the owl or the bird.

After putting the bird together, I think it would have looked A LOT better if had flipped the DSP to the other side … but didn’t think of that until I had everything glued on. 

I have been having really bad braxton hicks contractions the last couple of days, so it’s back to laying on the couch for me!  I only have about 4 weeks left and I am NOT ready for this baby to come yet so I better take it easy  🙂

I hope you ladies have a super weekend!

Emilee 🙂
