Think PINK and PINK SWEET STUFF!!!
Happy Friday everyone!! I hope that you have had a delightful week and are ready for a splendid weekend!!
Today is our new challenge at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge and I would love for you to join in with us this week. This is a VERY special challenge for me and we are being hosted by the wonderfully talented Anne for our PINK for BREAST CANCER AWARENESS challenge. Please let our PINK week remind each and every one of you about the importance of being aware of breast cancer and what we can do to catch it early!!! That is definitely the KEY!!!! We can't wait to see you there with your lovely PINK creations!! There are 2 fabulous surprises up for grabs this week!!! We would love for you to have a peek at all of the magnificent DT Sample cards/projects over at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge...so please come on over and show us your PINK!!!
I made a 4-part portfolio which you see the front of above and which measures 6" X 12" when closed. This measurement allows it to stand on its own when opened. I apologize for the pics but I could not get the pinks to photograph as it is IRL so just pretend with me.....smiles!! I used some gorgeous WOC Self Adhesive Rhinestone Swirls on two of the corners and some lovely 1" Silver Grey Organza Ribbon to close the portfolio. For the floral treatment I used 1" Wild Roses, 5/8" Open Roses, and Heather resting on MS punched rose leaves and a couple of vintage German stems.
This is a full shot of the portfolio and the measurement is 12" X 24". It is very easy and of course you can decorate it any way you wish. I have made another in the Christmas theme which I will have here next week. I used Bazzill for all double matting and all of the DP is from the Authentique Uncommon Collection. All images are from the 2008 Magnolia Pink Collection from Magnolia-licious which was made especially for Breast Cancer Awareness and Research. I started with a piece of white CS which measured 18" X 24" (perhaps you can ask your local printer to cut you this base) and then I scored the long side at 6", 12", 18" and the short side at 6". I then folded the short side up to make the pockets and used Scor-Tape at each of the folds. You can see that I double matted and machine stitched each panel though that is not necessary. And then the fun begins!!!
On the first panel I added a calendar and put Breast Cancer Awareness bracelets and some pink colorway rhinestones in the pocket. For the second panel I used the Pink Tilda With Rose and Pink Stitched Ribbon which were colored in Copics and Promarkers, adding Prisma Glitter to her dress and Glossy Accents to the Rose. For the third panel I used Pink Tilda Ice/Ballet Princess , colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding Prisma Glitter to her clothes. The horizontal is WOC 1/2" Pink Satin Ribbon anchored with 2 grosgrain bows. In the pocket is a pink moleskin mini-notebook on which I have placed a Copic colored Magnolia Pink Strength, Cure, Hope Circle. The fourth panel is just a grosgrain bow with a pink mechanical pencil.
The fifth pocket holds some ribbon stickers and a pink 2012 weekly planner and the sixth panel has the Magnolia Pink Strength, Cure, Hope Text. The seventh panel is the darling little Pink Tilda With Heart sitting on the Pink Bench and another Pink Stitched Ribbon, all colored with Copics adding a touch of Star Dust Stickles. And the last pocket holds some Fight Like A Girl Post-It notes.
I hope you like my little project and will decide to join in with us at the Just Magnolia and hÄnglar & stÄnglar Challenge.
