easy peasy



Just a quickie layout to share since it's that time of year... the gushy love holiday :) which despite its insane commercialism, is actually one of my favorites.

It's funny that the scrapbook pages I like the most are the ones that I finish during an episode of The Office. Not sure why... you'd think I'd love the ones that take me days to finish. Ha! I despise those ones. ;)
This one's easy peasy...
hand cut hearts, paint the "love" raw chipboard white, spray with Glimmer Mist, add finishing touches, sew around page. done.

(Click on smaller pic to view larger if you wish.)
I love those Making Memories new metal charms and I filled the word in with chalk then used one of their cute pins to keep it in place.
Making Memories: love notes line
Love script chipboard: Kit of the month
American Crafts: dot paper, ribbon
Basic Grey: Urban Prairie-my favorite.
Spray Ink: Glimmer Mist
font: fling

Now to answer a couple more questions:

ok...how do you get your pictures so big on blogger? mine are not near as big and they are set to large.

-A popular question is how to get larger sized photos on Blogger. This is how I do it:
Download to Photobucket (or any online photo site that has a "direct link" to your photo). Resize to 640 wide or for vertical 640 high. Highlight the direct link to your photo then click copy. Now open Blogger and instead of browsing your computer to download your photos you will copy the direct link into the right where it says URL... Makes sense? I didn't think so :) just kidding, it's easy once you try it.
Well, I guess I just had time for one, but it's a good one, right?
Let me know how that works. :)

I'm glad to see a page using something from the Mix it Up KOTM. I got that one and honestly don't know what to do with some of the pieces!

I work in healthcare and The Office- episode when Michael was trying to do CPR on the mannequin was hilarious to me! Best episode!

Carol said...

HEY! thanks for answering my question. i totally understand, just need to get myself an online photo site now, i guess. didn't think I'd get such a quick response. :)

I love that page! I just made my husband come over and look at it :) :)
Thanks for the tip about larger photos, I've wondered but never asked..I'll have to give it a try.

It's one of my fav holidays because you can show love in so many ways, WITHOUT submitting to the commercialism: making your own valentines, just spending time together with those you love, maybe a walk or breakfast in bed?

mj said...

nice...i even bought one of those oversized shield things because i have seen them and now i actually know what to do with it...i agree...my fav. LOs are the ones i finish in 30 min or less too...something about it being fast gives me more satisfaction!

Carol said...

THANK YOU for the info on enlarging pictures! I couldn't get it to work with the template I was using. I found this really great tutorial about how to change the sizes in the html of your actual blog: http://megan-myeverydaychaos.blogspot.com/2007/10/moment-youve-all-been-waiting-for.html
