Miss Gali ~ 4/26/17

Oh my sweet honey bunny Miss Gali!
I've said it many times in the past how hard it is to get decent photos of her but I'm pleased with this one! 

I bought Blue Fern Studios Happy Accident collection because it has several blue toned pages 
perfect for my kitty girls. But as you can see, I chose a pink page instead - LOL!
  Very fitting of Miss Gali's personality though.

I picked the BFS Heartland XOXO chipboard piece with its sweet design, 
that includes a few hearts, because I absolutely adore Miss Gali.  
This piece is heat embossed in Stampendous Frantáge Shabby White 
(a fave of mine because of the gorgeous gold flecks).  
The XOXO letters are embossed in Pink Dust and the hearts in Fuchsia.  
A few pink & fuchsia mulberry roses dressed it up.

For quite a while I've really been impressed with how my sweet friend Carrie journals 
wonderful feelings and memories on a lot of her layouts.  
It really inspired me to make some notes of favorite nicknames & sayings that I use only with Miss Gali.  
I decided to make the photo area into a pocket using foam tape just along the edges.  
My journaled ticket-tag fits perfectly!  

This led me to die cut more tickets in different sizes.  
These provided nice areas to group some flowers.  
White cardstock was used to die cut Prima leaves that I heat embossed with 
stunning Stampendous Frantáge Shabby White like I used on the chippie.  
Black brads added accents, as well as single stitch stamping in jet black archival ink.  



I stenciled a checkered design to match the same pattern in the chipboard. 
Pretty, sparkly BFS Imagine Ink color Speckled Mint was added to match the mint-aqua tones in the paper.   


Thanks for the nice visit and have a great week!  Lisa : )

  1. You're so sweet! Love the journaling about sweet Miss Gali (aka her royal elven highness)! And I am sooooo stealing your technique for those leaves they are to die for! I have those dies but I haven't even opened them yet but now I'm going to go up and rip them open! LOL! Really love your stencil work, too...that's something I haven't tried yet but your layouts always have that extra prettiness and I just love it--you inspire me too!! xoxo
