Therefore adopted to change the blog background and learn how to workout certain feature in the blogger. I started off with changing the blog background. I love the stretch as I can utilize the entire space on the webpage. Then my photos can be big and better. My previous blog background had darker colors. A change to pastel colors was eye pleasing. This blog has great templates. Love it and thank you for the free templates.My husband saw it and then suggested to hide most of my post and add “read more” link so upon clicking, the full post shows up. After some research and learning through browsing, I learned that blogger already had “Jump break” which is easy to use. Not much HTML code change required except a small bit as I am using customised template. That was easy. So my blog must have looked wonky. I sincerely thank you for all your patience today.Please extend your patience tomorrow as well, I still have one more addition on my blog to make. I want to add page numbers towards the end for easy navigation.
Wow! And its our first WOMAN Prime Minister – Julia Gillard! It happened all of a sudden in a matter of 2 days! A sudden change in leadership in the labour party and ta da…. new Prime Minister! Although I am happy about the Woman Prime Minister persay! I am totally unhappy about how the change happened all of a sudden and lot of other things which I do not want to discuss here on my blog. Its politics and it stinks!
but to share my entry for Just Add Ink challenge this week. This week’s challenge is to Just Add Pattern Paper!
So I have tried my hand using this combination except that I have used PTI’s Enchanted Evening and Scarlet Jewel colors and added Summer Sunrise to the combination. First here is the sketch for you.
This month’s theme is all about color schemes.
color schemes put to work. Be sure to post the color scheme near the top of your post in bold letters so
everyone can collect them to use as a future reference! With everyone’s different takes on
combinations from the Papertrey spectrum, we will surely build an amazing resource that we can all
utilize and fall in love with some new favorite color schemes!
I have used PTI Distressed Stripes stamp set to creat the background for the panel. The frame and sentiment are PTI’s Fillable frame #4 which are handcut and the leaves are from PTI’s Masculine Motifs. Dark Chocolate, Stamper’s White, Orange Zest and Ripe Avacado cardstocks and the buttons are from PTI. The donut border is from EK success punch and the thread is from my stash. Ink pads are from PTI – Raspberry Fizz, Ripe Avacado, Orange Zest except SU’s Chocolate Chip ink pad.
Here is the second color scheme.
And the card using the second color scheme.
Materials used are the same as above except PTI’s Hawaiian Shore ink pad and cardstock.I have tried to keep the sketch the same for all of the cards to see how different the card looks with different colors or just changing one color. Even with the pink on the last card, I fell it look more boyish card compared to the first two ones. Interesting results.
Anyway, hope like the cards you make note of these color combos. Now I am off to hop to see and take notes of all the other combinations. Happy Hopping!
Anyway, here is the sketch for you.
This week’s is one of them. Here are the colors for you.
And I am bored using them. I was also going through my stash to sell and I found some nice rubons. So I have used Kaisercraft’s white flourishes and SU white sentiment rubon on a Chocolate Chip cardstock.Its not exactly one layer but looks like one layer : ). Here is the card for you.
I have a project today which is a little joke book
I made using the tutorial from Nicole Heady’s blog.This project is basically for my son to give as a thank you gift to a nurse at the hospital where my husband works. My son is a stamp collector. During a party he had mentioned to the nurses that he collects stamps. Since then this nurse has been collecting all the stamps from her posts from South Africa and Ireland and giving them to my son. He loves to get stamps from different countries and now had 5 stamp books full. Anyway, he wanted to give a thank you card to her and a gift to her. He is 10 years and what would a 10 year old give as a thank you gift? Just then my DD came to me wanting to tell jokes. Ta Da……………. a joke book would be lovely!
