Fantastic Friday February 1st

Wow! January just flew by. Hope the cold intends to fly by too. We had our share of cold & snow in January. I think it should start warming up now. As I type this, it is only 3 degrees & that is not with the windchill.

Lets Get on with todays post.This week was busy. I had the opportunity to teach scrapbooking to kids that are about 14yrs. old. I had signed up to teach the Parent Elective class at my son's school. No, he was not in  the class. People teach all different things for this class so the kids do not get to choose what the parents teach. In this class, there are 2 girls & 6 boys. I taught them how to make a paper bag mini album & cover it with cardstock. I will be going back next week so we can embellish the pages & I can show them some of the fun tools.
 I was hoping I would make the deadline for Lets Get Sketchy. I always try to do some scrappin on Fridays even though I should be sleeping. First things first.


-We R Memory Keepers January Snow Sewn Cardstock
 -Prima Firefly Mini Alpha Letters
-Quick Quotes Blue Striped Patterned Paper
-Prima Canvas Resist Banners & Tickets
-Prima Precious Metals Ice Leaves   
-Prima Wood Buttons
-Prima Petal Pins Iced
-My Mind's Eye Decorative Brads
 -Tattered Angels Graphite Glimmer Mist                 -Smooch Pearlized Silver Ink
-Rangers Weathered Wood Distress Ink                  -Rangers Pine Needles Distress Ink 
-Rangers Black Soot Distress Ink                      
-We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Fancy Floss                                        

I made the title 3D with square foam dots under each letter. I cut the two different blue papers with a decorative scissors. I inked the tickets on the right until it was as dark as I wanted & could see the resist pattern.I was going to spray the paper with Glimmer Mist but I practiced first & the mister got clogged. When I tried to clean it, I realized that if I pressed the pump, it would spray through the bottom of the tube. That is how I ink blotted the paper. I added some blue fancy floss & inked the edges of the wood buttons. I have a couple packages of decorative brads so I mixed some up until I found what I liked.

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their Friday & the weekend.

Happy Scrappin!
