a Moment lasts Forever - Scrapbook Studio

Hi there.  February is always a month of excitement.  It is time for our Scrapbook Studio Eersterivier Retreat.  Nearly a week of creativity, lots of laughter, stunning time with friends who have become closer than family.  This year Cariena asked me to make a kit that will be given away during the I was excited to see what she included in the parcel to me...and this is what I came up with:

Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Echo Park (Happy Camper); Cardstock: American Craft; Wood Veneer: Scrapbook Studio; Chipboard: Celebr8;  Brads: I have no idea; Twine: WeR Memory Keepers; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Mist: Prima Color Bloom (Sunshine); Stencil: Heidi Swapp; Dies: Quickutz (stars and flower cookie cutter); Other mediums: Embossing powder: Lindy's Stamp Gang.

Some close ups:
 I love to combine a load of different patterned papers and layer them.  I outline the edges to create some separation between the layers.

 The wooden stars were heat embossed.

 I had to include just a smidgen of stitching :-P  I created the journaling spot by cutting two different sizes of the flower die and layering them.  The title was also heat embossed.

My "go-to" is to use enamel dots...and we forget about all the brads in our stash...time to use them up.

Thank you for visiting my blog today...I hope you found a bit of inspiration here ♥♥
