New YMBD and Sassafras Lass Page

Here is my first page with the new Sassafrass Lass Anthem papers, and the YMBD scrapbooking April monthly kit. I used a Swirly Bird Cardstock Embellishment, Graph Paper Scallop, Who/What Classic Label, and Chipboard Apple from the montly kit.

I also used paper and stickers from Sassafrass Lass Anthem, paper and letter stickers from Sassfrass Lass Get Happy, Letter stickers from Jenni Bowlin, American Crafts and Making Memories. For the border, I used a Sassafrass Lass die cut border to trace the scallops, then I colored them in with a red Copic marker to give a subtle color difference.


For the apple, I painted the YMBD corrugated cardboard apple red, then added the tiny alphas. Next I covered the entired thing in glossy accents to give it a sort of epoxy look. Finally I added the chipboard '1' thicker.

For the balloons, I cut them out of the Sass Lass paper as one big set, then I cut them apart so I could ink all the edges and layer them on foam adhesive. When I put the set back together I just overlapped them a little bit more than they were before so that you can't see there the balloons are incomplete.

Since I had inked everything else, I had to ink the ymbd die cut swirly bird too. That was a bit of a pain with all the detail, but I am happy with hot it turned out. I only put a little bit of adhesive in the middle of the tail so I could sort of 'fluff' the tail feathers. I added more foam to pop up the cloud sticker. Finally I used a Making Memories brad as the center of the smaller flower sticker for just a bit more dimension.

and here is a little secret (shh dont tell anyone) the 'i' in ride is actually a 'j'. I just covered the tail of it with the flower because I didnt have any i's.

now if only I could finally get my hands on some of that Vintage Yummy and the felties - sigh. I just love Sassafras Lass.
