Monthly Memories Club: Lucy Pages

I've been crazy busy running in a million directions, but I am so glad that I made some time to work with these Lucy Papers. For Monthly Memories Club we usually start with the 2 pages that CTMH designs, but this month I'm going rogue and made 6 pages with these pretty, sparkly papers and rub-ons.

I made these two for the pics I'll be taking at convention this year. I think these two are my favorite of the six pages. I made the stems of my little flags with just a marker, and added lots of faux stitching on the Pear and Creme Brule CS pieces. Then I added real stitching on the hot air balloons, which I made using a circle and a cupcake liner I cut on my Art Philosophy cartridge! I stitched the strings then topped them off with one of the Lucky Glitter Rub-ons. I was worried about apllying them over something so lumpy bumpy, but they worked like a charm! I got the inspiration for my beautiful balloons from the Heart 2 Heart Photo Inspiration Challenge.

Do you see the new Keepsake felt alphabet stickers too? How much do you love those? The font is just so sweet, and matches the new Keepsake Stamps that I love so much. I used those on my FLY card.

I used the felt alphabet on my 2nd set of pages too - there are a lot of letters in that set! I stamped the background here rolling the dot stamp that comes in the Basic kit in Grey Wool ink. I think that newsprint is my favorite pattern - silly I know, but it's distressed with pink and yellow ever so lightly, just yummy and neutral!

I wanted to get these posted asap, but I've got pics sitting at Costco waiting for these pages. The boys have made a wide variety of paper crowns at preschool and Kindergarten, so I printed them all in black and white and color. I plan to make the pics on the page be black and white, and pop up the crowns in color, fussy cut from the second set of photos! I'll have to post a completed pic once I get to Costco.

 My final 2 pages I distressed heavily with Pearl Paint, and getting a clear pic without reflection front he pain was nigh on impossible for me. How do I fix that? The background Grey Wool CS is heavily sanded and painted - so pretty in real life. The flowers are Glitter Rub-ons, layered on top of Cardstock stems with bitty Color ready Ribbon leaves.

I cut the sun image from the Art Philosophy Cartridge and added swirly glittery vine rub-ons for the rays. I dyed some more ribbon with markers to create the pleated ribbon border, which has each pleat in a different color them a long stretch of Sweet Leaf green running the length of the page. I colored the felt alphabet with my Grey Wool Marker to tone down the pink for this grey, pearly page, where I plan to add pics of my little guys on our annual trip to visit the Tulip Festival.
