Hello Luscious! That is the name of one of the new Basic Grey lines and I have to say that the name fits the line! LOL! I love it when I get lucky enough to work with a new Basic Grey line for my CT reveal. I do admit that once I got my BG goodies in the mail, they sat on my desk for over a week untouched.
I was just in a hole and feeling uninspired. I knew my deadline was coming up so I sat down, looked through my Hello Luscious goodies and picked out my photos to scrap. Once I started I couldn't stop. I finished all five of my layouts in two days, that is awesome for a slow scrapper like me! This line is really beautiful and I love the colors and patterns. Working with it helped me get my mojo back and I'm ready to scrap some more!
I Love You: My beautiful children are my favorite subjects to scrapbook, so I started out my reveal with a photo of the two of them together. I used a mix of five different pattern papers (Scrumptious, Blissful, Sparkling, Succulent & Honeyed) and layered them on a piece of Pinecone Bazzill cardstock. I used the Hello Luscious Woolies stickers for my only embellishments on this layout. Lastly all I had to add was my title and date.
This Girl: My daughter means the world to me even if she thinks I'm mean at times. LOL! I started with the Raspberry Syrup paper and cut out my shape, then glued it to a piece of Blossom Bazzill cardstock. Then I doodled around the border and added some Hello Luscious Glazed brads. Next I cut pieces from the Dazzling and Scrumptious papers and arranged them with my two photos. Then I added my title, some Prima flowers and my journaling..... which is spelled out with lots of different mini letter stickers from My Little Shoebox.
Finally!: This layout is all about the journaling (the story behind Erik losing his first baby teeth), the photos, and lots of pattern papers! I used the Inviting paper for my background and then layers of the Thrive, Yumberry and Zesty papers. I then cut a 5" circle from the Honeyed for my journaling. Added my title, date and some of the tiniest Hello Luscious Buttons on the scallop border.
Blessed: Here's another layout with my two babies! LOL! I think the Hello Luscious line goes great with color photos but also with black & white photos, so this layout I scrapped some black & white photos. I started with the Wine Bazzill cardstock. Then I used pieces from the Honeyed, Zesty and Simply Grand papers. Next I cut a scalloped border from Raddish paper and added some Hello Luscious Buttons. To embellish I used the Hello Luscious Bloomers stickers.
Easter 2010: I don't know why but I have the hardest time with scrapbooking Easter. I have the last four or five years of Easter photos that still need to be scrapped. So I pulled out some of last year's Easter for my last layout. I used the Lemonade Bazzill cardstock for a softer colored background. Then I cut a 11"x11" piece of the Jalapeno Jelly paper, I used the backside. Next I cut two strips from the Yumberry paper. Then I made two scalloped borders with the Sparkling and Blissful papers. To finish this layout I cut a piece from the Simply Grand paper for my title and then added some Stitched Brads and Bloomers.
