Gina K. Sneak Peek: Guiding Light & Wee Tees


shadow box & bookmark

Our first sneak peek is Guiding Light, a beautiful lighthouse,  seashore set with wonderful sentiments illustrated by Rupa Shevde. For my project, I made a shadowbox card and coordinating laminated bookmark for a dear friend who loves lighthouses!

Here is a closeup of the card.  I used the new Jersey Shore digital paper pack created for this release (the paper is called Sunlit Ocean but I used it for my background, I thought it was perfect for it).  The gold cardstock I used is Mica/Metallic by Papertemptress.  I used the weathered background from the Bold Flowers set from the Floral Frenzy stamp kit, which will be available for purchase separately soon.

Here is a closeup of the bookmark, which will be very durable since it’s laminated.  I used natural hemp cord & tied a lighthouse charm on the end.   I know my friend is going to love this since not only does she adore lighthouses, she also loves to read!

This next sweet set illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger is called Wee Tees.  We all know and love her Little Tees set, and now we have one for the babies & kids with so many adorable images & sentiments for countless combinations for cards, projects and scrapbook pages which is what I am sharing with you.  This is a 6 x 6 inch page I made for my nephew’s arrival last May.  Since he will be one year next month, it was about time I got started on his first year!  I used a simply scrapping kit by SU! Rock-a-Bye Boy, so I paper-pieced the onesie with paper from it.

On this next page, I did the same, but since it wasn’t a busy onesie, I was able to stamp one of the many sentiments in the set!  We were so blessed to arrive in CA on the day he was born (but it was too late in the evening to see him so we had to wait until the next day).  It is hard to believe this baby, so small & tiny looks like this now!  Isn’t he adorable?  I love his curly top hair!   Only 4 1/2 weeks and we will get to love & hug on him!  Can’t wait!!
