Wrinkled Elephant Project

Mini Brads for the eyes . . . and Game on Paper complete this project. The inside says "it's your Birthday". Easy and cute! That's the way I like it!

Wrinkled paper

Wet your paper. Wad it up in a ball . . . maybe multiple times.
Flatten it out by hand; then iron it if you want it smoother. Fun and easy!
On my elephant you may notice that I cut an additional head and layered it on top either with foam tape . . . or in this case I folded a piece of paper making a paper hinge. Attaching this underneath gives the head some dimension and movement. I also used mini-brads for the eyes.

Life is a Jungle

I love this guy. He is from Close to My Heart's Life's a Jungle Set. It's the July Stamp of the Month. I used Grey Wool Cardstock and added texture to the project by Wrinkling the Cardstock. This is easily accomplished by wetting the cardstock first either by dipping it in water or by spritzing it with a spray bottle. I used a 6x6" piece which gave me plenty of paper for several elephants. You will be much less likely to tear your paper if you wet the cardstock before wadding it up in a ball. I'll add a couple additional pictures of the process.

2007 Puma Layout

I need to add some journalling . . . . but what I like about this layout is that I divided some of the photos between the two pages. I also stamped the football helmet a pop-dotted it over the background textrue. I used the "Game On" paper packet and everything is mounted on black cardstock.

This was my first scrapbook page using the dimensional elements letters.

I used a sponge dauber to rub hydrangia ink into the chipboard letters. Then stamped a football image in black onto each letter.

It's the game on paper packet. I have plans for a couple more football pages with this paper as well.

Found this little guy in our waterfall pond tonight. . . too cute. . probably less than 3" big. I scared him while trying to take this picture . . . and I'm so sad that I may never see him again.
