blood, sweat, tears & mm idol, lol!

That's right - it's time once again!

So the challenge was "back to the basics," with continuing off-limits lists popping up through the very first few hours and then throughout the week.

<~~~~We were also encouraged to use the Making Memories Deluxe Tool Kit as much as possible (and boy did it ever save me this week!) For my project, I needed the craft knife, hole punch/hammer, tweezers, ruler, and the glue pen saved my life!

Immediately, I got the idea, but it took all week to take shape.

My idea:
100% paper! There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING pre-made on this layout, other than the papers' patterns themselves.

My process:
*hand cut flowers upon flowers
*used deco scissors (talk about back to the basics!) to make my own ricrack
*cut & created "ribbon"
*made & handcut "metal" words and a "metal" frame
*made & created sticker letters (insert eye popping smiley here, that was pain!)
*made my own grommets
*made my own brads (I even made a button and staples, but they didn't make the cut!)

My technique:
*and then used my favorite technique, eyelet doodling (see where the kit comes in?) to add just a touch of style and technique to the layout. It's of a girlie girl in a masuline layout (oh, you'll see!) so I need a touch of softness to complete the idea.

My supplies:
*Sweetwater patterned paper
*Fancy Pants patterned paper (just a teeny little flower!)
*Bazzil and Paper Company textured cardstock
*Canson smooth cardstock for "embellishments"
that's it!! well, that's all you see, anyway...
*Making Memories Deluxe Tool Kit
*Making Memories ribbon glue
*Fiskars Paper Edgers Corkscrew deco scissors
*Sharpie metallic marker
*fonts inspired by 2Peas fonts

I do hope you like this week - the process was my focus and, although long and a bit painful, it was well worth the product! =)
