WMS Grand Calibur Event - Case a Project Challenge

Last weekend the girls of Waltzingmouse Stamps introduced WMS fans to the new Grand Calibur machine that is new from Spellbinders. I received this machine for Christmas from my mom (Thanks Mom!) and was particularly interested in learning what all could be done with it. After seeing the projects over the weekend, I now have some more ideas of just how to utilize the greater surface space for embossing and die-cutting! And Claire's great posts about embossing are something I just must try!

Now this week WMS asks us to case a project done by the design team. I was already working away on one Sunday. :)

This project is a case of Belinda's "Beach Stud" scrapbook layout. Elements that I kept in mine include use of Waltzingmouse Stamps' Free Spirit background stamp, an offset matting to the picture, a little Labels 1 tag on the side of the picture, and I would also count that the layout is about my husband as well. That counts right? This picture is of DH and his youngest brother at Christmas time in 2009 (see, more 2009 pages getting completed!) as they prepared to go out in the cold Montana weather to help their dad with some farm chores. DH hadn't dressed up head to toe in farm gear for quite some time and his mom and I took advantage and made sure to snap a picture of the two of them. Aw, good old brother bonding! (Ok, DH isn't going to like that this post got so mushy...lol!)

So here it is...see if you can find the cased elements...




And be sure to enter yourself. There's a GRAND prize in the form of some grand nestabilities and a WMS stamp set for the winner! Here's the post with all the details: WMS Case Challenge.

Hah, your post is anything but mushy. Did you read mine? Haha! Love the stamped bubbles across! Isn't that bg stamp awesome? And the little labels 1 tag is cute as well! :) Glad you enjoyed the WMS/Grand Calibur event!

That picture is so flattering of my porch and the assortment of clothing is so appealing. I'm sure the boys will like what you have done. Great idea and background.

Mushy is good. What a great layout. The bubbles absolutely make it by adding a bit of additional fun to a great photograph.
