I inherited my mother's belongings November 2008. Not because she passed away, thankfully, but because she moved in with my sister, Lilly, and she gave me all her worldly possessions. There were things I gifted because when I combined her things with my things ... it was just TOO MUCH! Sinful really! My mother was very unhappy about that ... see she expects me to keep EVERY. SINGLE. THING. :-/ Now when I gift things, I tell the recipient under no circumstances are they allowed to tell my mother! ;) My momma didn't raise no fool! :) lol I cannot invite her to my home because I am afraid from the minute she enters the front door she will begin to take inventory. :-/ I will have a lot of explaining to do. Life is too short for explanations.
Even with all I gifted, I still have way too many things. Some of these I plan to scrap about and then gift them ... some will be given to charity ... some I still plan to keep. These are three items I plan to scrap about and keep. I thought this stamp set would be excellent for the layout I have in my "Ema-gination". ;) lol
See what I mean? I used twine as well because it just seemed to fit better than ribbon! The PP is from Cosmo Cricket Double Deck Material Girl and Garden Variety. The brown PP is from HOTP. Of course, the CS and eyelet is from my long hoarded stash. I used one of Fiskars corner punches.
Again, I used silver metal looking paper for the accents on the sifter, see below in greater detail. I also used a silver gel pen to fill in the handle. Not sure you can see this in the picture. ;)
I used vellum this time for the glass ... I remembered ... ;) ... and placed hearts inside the measuring cup for detail.
I cannot wait to do the layout now. This really motivated me for it. :)
