Titles for Scrapbooking II

Today I’m going to share with you the scrapbook titles I did for the rest of the swaps due the end of this month.

For the School Days theme, using primary colors, I made this cute little mouse holding an apple for his teacher.  I used the pattern Back to School Mice, from KaDoodle Bug Designs.

For the Apple Picking theme, using red, brown, orange, and yellow, I made a vertical border.  I used the Apples in  Basket pattern from Miss Kate Cutables and the leaf border punch from Martha Stewart.  I added glossy accents to the apples to give them a nice shine.

I just love squirrels and this title worked great for the Squirrels/Chipmunk theme, using brown, yellow and green.  Nuts About Fall pattern from Miss Kate Cutables and some nutmeg Flower Soft to make this cute title piece.

And the last title, using Happy Harvest from Miss Kate Cutables and some Stickles glitter glue, is my all time favorite.  I just love the layers on the pumpkins and the glitter looks so much better when seen in person.

Since I am now done with my September swaps, its time to start next months.  I will be doing Thanksgiving and baby themes.  Can’t wait to get started.

Titles for Scrapbooking

Hi everyone.  It’s been awhile since I’ve been here.

I have been busy making titles for a few swaps that I am in.  I really enjoy these swaps as I get to see the talents of others.

The first title I did was for a Grandparent’s Theme using primary colors.

Grandparent's Day

I sprayed it with iridescent glitter dust, but you can’t see it.  Too bad.  It really adds a charm to the piece.

Next, I made a title for the theme Friendship Day with neutral colors.  I am not sure that I used neutral colors, but that is really hard to do when you use  flowers.  And I really like the flowers so I kept them on the piece.

I also used a gold glitter dust on this one.  You can see this a little bit better than the other one, it just doesn’t glitter in this picture as well as it does in person.

Finally, I did titles for National Dog and National Cat Day using the colors brown, yellow, red and green.  I have 5 dogs so this one was no problem.  I’m sure I will have no problem using the pieces that I get from this swap with all the pictures my daughter, Lucy, takes of her dog.  The cat on the other hand, well, we don’t have any, but my good friend Lynda loves cats and I’m sure she can find some pictures to go with this swap.  She will be surprised when I give it to her.

Cats & Dogs

All of the title patterns are from Miss Kate Cutables.  I just love her diecuts.  The swaps are due at the end of the month so I got my titles done in plenty of time.  Hope the others are hard at work on theirs.
