I blinked

The weather obviously knows that I did a layout yesterday. It is foggy and gloomy outside, definitely not taking pictures of layouts weather. I outsmarted it! I figured out how to use the stitch feature on my scanner.
For those of you who don't know what that is, you can scan pieces of a layout or a photo or even several photos in a panorama and "stitch" them together to make one. For example: I have a 8 1/2 x 11 scanner and this is a 12 x12 layout. I scanned the layout 4 times with a rotation each time, then stitched them together. Amazing! I might never photograph a layout again!

I still had the Bella Blvd Super Stud sitting on my table from the card that I made the other day. I haven't been scrapping much since the holidays (but that hasn't stopped me from buying stuff). So I decided to sit down and do a layout and use up the Bella so I wouldn't have to store it. I used white cardstock sprayed with Smooch and the Super Stud for my papers. I punched the edge of the star papers with the Martha Stewart star punch (I think Cathy has one left), then I edged them in blue so they would stand out on the white cardstock. The letters are Thickers that I hacked up a little bit and the green felt stars are Kaiser. The pictures are professionals, but that top smaller one I printed on my new printer. It looks perfect, couldn't be happier with the printer. (Yes, I have a photo release).

Thanks for stopping by and reading my babble.
