i'm still awaiting the official go-ahead to post these. just a disclaimer, in case they disappear later and you'll know i'm in trouble. lol! but i've been dying to share these. i've been watching the photos and projects being shared on the making memories blog for the past few days. i was surprised and very happy when i saw these 3 layouts of mine show up in THIS post, highlighting projects that use the slice. they're 3 of my favorite ever layouts that i've created for making memories.
i actually created these layouts months ago, for a special assignment. it was the first time i got to play with the slice embossing tips. they also sent me the new vellum papers and metallic papers to use, which are perfect for using the embossing tips on.
photo curtousy of megan cristello. love that she lets me scrap her gorgeous kids from time to time! this is her daughter sayler, isn't she adorable!
how cute are the embossed butterflies! i just tied some coordinating embroidery thread around them, attatched coordinating stick pins, and adhered them using 3-d glue dots. the only thing that could have made this better, was if i had purple stick pins ;) and you can see on the actual layout, i added the metallic silver "flirty" behind this green metallic one. that was a last minute addition, so it's not in this detail shot.
for this layout, i was using the new shadow option on the slice. yes, they have added this new feature to the new design cards called "MS+". it's a mirroring, shadowing, plus speed upgrade. it's on the new design cards, but it will also automatically install this feature onto your slice the first time you use one of these new cards. and it stays installed, so it will give you a ton more option with the design cards you already have. technology sure is amazing, isn't it? you can read more about it HERE, and also see a ton of the new design cards.
i am in love with the fact that you can cut shadow shapes now. especially for titles. i always want the extra dimensional look to my titles, and this has such a cool look.
make sure and spend some time over on the making memories blog, checking out everything they've posted the last few days. lots of new stuff going on. halloween product, christmas product, design shop embellishments, vintage findings product, new slice product, and more. and tons of giveaways too. hope you've been trying for those too :)
