Oldie-Moldie Monday

It's still Monday, right?? I have been so behind on everything this week, but I'm glad I got this challenge done before the day was over. My mom has been here visiting from Edmonton. We've had a great visit, but not much crafting got done. With mom's delicious cooking, we all are a bit heavier at the end of her visit, but boy it was worth it! Her apple strudel is to die for!

For this week, I dug out these Rebecca Sower printed cutouts from way back in 2003. I used to love anything and everything Rebecca did. Her things were always so fabulous and funky and so unlike anything I ever did, and all I could do was marvel at her creativity. And her studio was to die for! So I was thrilled when I found her blog not too long ago. She'd taken a year off from scrapbooking and Creating Keepsakes and is now back to teaching and creating. Have a look at some of her things...gorgeous as ever! Rebecca Sower's Blog

For each of the little pictures, I painted Aleene's Paper Glaze on top and then sprinkled it with Making Memories Shimmer , an ultra fine glitter. I don't really like to use glitter, but I love the look of this fine glitter, so I put up with a bit of sparkle, because glitter never stays where it's supposed to!! The patterned paper is from Sandylion and the script paper is from 7 gypsies. I dug the 7 gypsies paper from my stash, so I get double points for that, right?? The rub on sentiment is from QuicKutz.

For this card, the flourish chipboard is from Bo Bunny. I inked it with ColorBox Chestnut ink. The sentiment is from Studio G, patterned paper is from Sandylion.

The paper for this card is from K&Co., another piece from deep down in the stash. I cut some chipboard with the Marvy scallop punch and inked it with the ColorBox Chestnut ink again. Then I stamped a Rhonna Farrer flourish on top. Sentiment is from Printworks.

It was actually fun working with these lovely pictures again and finding Rebecca Sower again. I am still in love with her studio!
