This week the Cuttlebug Challenge girls were challenged to create a layout with a Vintage Vibe using Crafty Secrets. I am the newbie, so I didn't have any Crafty Secrets to play with, but I did my best to create a Vintage-y feel using the Noel Mignon Object of My Affection kit.
The Fancy Pants floral paper was my jumping off point for this page. I loved the way it looked with this picture of my husband and daughter walking on the beach. I created my own page accents using clear packaging and my Cuttlebug Textile Hearts combo die/embossing folder and Frills Borders embossing folder.
I gave the clear accents a whitewash with some acrylic paint and then used Tattered Rose Distress Stickles on top for a sandy effect. :)
The chipboard hearts are painted with white acrylic paint, a wash of Shimmerz Pink Pearlz, and more Tattered Rose Distress Stickles. I added the Stickles to the Making Memories heart accent, as well, so that everything would coordinate.
I hope you will come and play along with us at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog! What an inspiring place to be!
This week I challenged myself to scraplift a scrappy friend of mine, Deanna Misner. She has such a great style and I couldn't wait to try this page of hers.

Scraplifting is one of my favorite things to do. It gives me a chance to apply my own style to the page designs I admire and love created by others. On this page, I used the shape of Deanna's circle page to ground my photo-grouping. Next I interpreted her ribbon strips underneath her photos as paper strips across my page. I added a sticker grouping to the top of my main photo to imitate her bingo card tab. And then finally, I tried to emulate her beautiful handcut flower sprays with a sprinkle of stars on my page.

Thanks to Deanna, for always being an inspiration to me! ;)
See you tomorrow!
