Catching Air at 45 using Basic Grey POTM

This is Gaby with one more Basic Grey layout to hopefully entice you to create your layouts using the BG POTM collection available at the store at a discounted price! -- read at bottom for great opportunity!!

I created this two page layout using the Basic Grey POTM using the Origins Collection
that you can find at HappyNScrappin

This is Angel (aka DH) --He use to ride at a competitive level in his younger days....
He is so proud of these pictures and the fact that he was still riding at 45. But after a few bumps and bruises (actually, broken bones, tore ligaments and couple a concussions!!).....
He is now all into Golf, but won't let go of the Dirt Bike, just in case....

I added some machine stitching to the upper left page and the lower right page and the bottom labels.
The labels are from the Cricut Embossing Plus Fanciful Labels --I printed on my printer and than cut/embossed.

If you purchase just 6 of any year's BG kits, the owners at HappyNScrappin will give you the album for free!  (you had to purchase 12 of the 2010-11 before) --There are only a couple left!!

Balloon Decor using MM Vintage Findings

Hi everyone!! Emily here, with a project I created with the Making Memories Vintage Findings collection. You can find this collection 25% off at HappyNScrappin' ! I have loved this collection since it came out, and was really happy to get the chance to play with it. If you know me, you know I love hot air balloons, so I had to create another canvas with some on it. The last canvas I created with hot air balloons was three dimensional, but not as much as this one is. I really wanted to go all out with this. 

I'm happy with how it turned out.... what do you think?? 

This is the canvas in full.... 

A balloon... 
The twine and ribbons that are attaching the baskets to the balloons are all from the MM Vintage Findings trims. 

The center, smaller balloon...  Do you see the white edges of the balloons? I used the Imaginisce D-Stress tool to distress the edges of each one before gluing them all together. 

The last balloon which is closer to the bottom of the canvas... 

As you can see, I used the MM papers to create the baskets... I also used some Bazzill to create the blue basket. I then outlined the top edge of each one with Liquid Pearl. 

The last photo below is it hanging in our hallway. I love it!!! 

Here are the products from HappyNScrappin' that were used to create the project.... just clink on the name of the product below it's image and it will take you to it!!

Vintage Finding 12x12 Paper - Pink Geometric
