Chipboard projects

It's Monday and boy is it going to be a beautiful day! the sun is shining and it's going to be in the mid-80's, I plan to get out and enjoy it as much as I can! Kara and Skye are both sick and staying home today, I think some sunshine is in order for them as well. :)

I worked this weekend, it was pretty steady on Saturday and yesterday was so so slow. It was difficult to just stand around and I tried to tidy up but that's difficult too because the customers would trickle through one by one. I am sure it was because of the beautiful day, at least I hope so. I don't want to be standing around all the time with nothing to do but hurry and wait, I am too impatient for that.
After work I grabbed Kara and Skye and Ashlyn and headed to the park to take some of Kara's senior pics. The poor girl didn't feel well but it was a nice day and we had to take advantage of the weather. I got some pretty shots and I can't wait to get them developed! That's my plan today.

Last week was my week to host a chipboard class on Scrapping Outback. There are 7 weeks and this is the final week. My class was about using mesh/screen/tulle on chipboard. For the bird on the card I inked, heat embossed and immediately covered it in tulle. I then repeated the process twice more to melt the tulle into the embossing powder. I finished off with some inking for added dimension. It looks so much better irl, it has texture and dimension.
For the box I inked the circle/heart cb, heat embossed and immediately pressed some plastic mesh into it. I then added some alcohol ink and melted once again. I did the same with the words except I also added another layer of heat embossing for more gloss. I had a lot of fun creating this class and the girls did a super job executing it on their projects!

I am off to get some laundry and chores out of the way so I can scrap! Have a super week!
