SUINK May Sneak Peeks

Good Morning & Happy Monday! It's my turn today to give you a SNEAK PEEK at some of the fun new goodies being released this month by Storage Units, Ink & More. This month is a bit different than most. No new stamp sets will be released; however there are lots of fun new products that SUINK is releasing, including patterned paper, ribbon, buttons, and flowers. These will all be available starting Wednesday, May 13th.

I have a few different things to show you today, so stick with me...LOL! First up is an altered picture frame. I picked up the unfinished picture frame from Wal-Mart for less than $3.00. I started by tracing the frame onto a sheet of My Little Shoebox Patterned Paper, then painted the frame with Light Leaf Green acrylic paint. After the paint was dry, I covered the front of the frame with Mod Podge and adhered the paper. Then, I sanded around the frame to smooth out all the edges. To finish the frame off, I added a few matching flowers and buttons and one of my favorite black and white photos of my girls.

Next, is an 8x8 scrapbook page. This is my VERY FIRST scrapbook page! So, I used THIS scrapbook layout for my inspiration. This is a perfect layout to showcase the new Core'dinations Whitewash Collection that SUINK will be releasing this month. The base of the scrapbook page is Core'dinations cardstock and layered onto that is more My Little Shoebox Patterned Paper. I adhered a picture of my girls to another piece of Core'dinations cardstock and distressed around the edges. I tore three different colors of the Whitewash cardstock and adhered some flowers and buttons.

Lastly, is a card using the SUINK set, Butterfly Garden. I used Taylor's Sketch #66 for my layout. This was a perfect sketch to showcase the new button being released this month. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it in with Prismacolor Markers. I added some StarDust Stickles to the image and blue rhinestones to the butterfly's antennas. I also used the Core'dinations Chocolate Box cardstock, which I distressed to show the beautiful turquoise color hidden beneath. Also new this month at SUINK is ribbon; I LOVE RIBBON!!! On this card, I used some green and brown polka dot ribbon.

And I love that you can give that as a gift with your matching card down there! I just did my first scrapbook page too - LOL - not sure what to do with it now though because I don't scrapbook.... Lotsa stuff - nice to see goodies on your blog-o!
