Hello everyone! This past weekend was a scrappy weekend for me. We were HOT and HUMID and what better way to stay cool than to inside and scrap! I dug out old products and journaled quite a bit too.
Momma Opossum and Her Babies. A story about a opossum who moved from the neighbor’s yard to our tree, to underneath a tarp. Found out she had TWO little babies! But all is well. They went on their merry little way.
Products used was 7 Gypsies lined pattern paper (remember them??!!); Amy Tangerine Thickers; Zva Creative bling; Tim Holtz ink in “aged mahogany” and cardstock was from stash.
Hey You! Jackson had brought in this beautiful blue bird. Luckily it was not injured and we took it outside so it could fly away.
Products used are My Mind’s Eye papers and chipboard; Recollections washi tape; Dylusions mist; Jane Davenport ink and a Simon Says stamp for the title.
Hi everyone! Last weekend I managed to get a few layouts completed.
Woof Woof – You Kitten Me Right Meow: Everything is DCWV except the collar sticker (Basic Grey). Penny and Jackson hanging out in the yard together. Penny is cool with it. Jackson..well, not so much. His look tells you all about how he feels! Haha!
Hello everyone! In between doggie layouts, I was also working on Jackson pages. The photos are of when he was younger – about age 1 or so.
Can my friend come inside? Jackson made a friend! I used Bazzill cardstock; Basic Grey alphas; Recollections cat pattern paper and Kaisercraft stickers, die cuts, paw print pattern paper and journal spot.
Carefree. I used Dear Lizzy title, stickers, pattern papers; Recollections washi tape and various manuf. for my mists and paints (Tattered Angels, Tim Holtz and Shimmerz)
Paw Prints On My Heart. I used Doodlebug twine and Echo Park pattern papers, stickers and ephemera.
Good morning everyone! I know it’s been awhile and the past month has been super busy.
May 1st was National Scrapbooking Day and I ended up playing at A Cherry On Top during the festivities. I was also honored to be a hostess for a two hour block on NSD too! I offered two challenges – a Fashion Challenge and a Pinterest Challenge with a Twist. My fashion challenge was based on a Mood Board that I supplied and scrapbookers had to choose at least 3 items that inspired them.
And here is how I was inspired by it:
1. True Friends as a title, with a hint of gold (washi tape, alphas, and the doggie paper clip). 2. The nails (middle photo) – browns and teal, bones (border sticker), paw prints (stickers) and “woof” (washi tapes). 3. lacy leggings (doily)
My second challenge was to choose a layout to scraplift or a sketch to use from Pinterest and the TWIST was to use ONLY products that are from manufacturers who are no longer in business. And for me, that means BASIC GREY! Freebies were any and all tools (punches, die cutting, etc) and inks.
I chose this layout to scraplift:
And this is my take on it:
For the twist, I used LOTS of Basic Grey – papers, rub ons and chipboard pieces, along with alphas and other stickers. I also used Zva Creative bling for the centers of the butterflies.
For the following week, I would do at least ONE layout per day (during the work week) with 3-4 layouts per weekend day. Here are my creations:
There were SO Many challenges that I didn’t even get to do, but I did 12! That’s a new record in my book!
Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing with you some layouts I’ve worked on the last couple of weekends.
You don’t find the happy life, you make it: Everything is Echo Park “I’d rather be crafting”
Hey there: Everything is Simple Stories “Oh Happy Day”
The sweetest thing: I used DCWV papers; Kaisercraft border and ticket stickers; The Paper Studio paw prints and Bo Bunny alphas. Layout is based on a sketch (see below) and the ACOT Music Genre Challenge.
Some Assembly Required: I used Basic Grey “Acid Wash” papers, grey alphas, tags; Freckled Fawn enamel dots (orange and yellow); Doodlebug enamel dots (blue); Jillibean Soup ephemera die cuts; The paper Studio “Life is Ruff!” sticker; Sticko doggie sticker and bone stickers; and a die cut doggie from my stash. It was white and I used CTMH ink in Goldenrod to color it
I submitted the layout to two ACOT Challenges: My Mood Challenge (Used 6 tags, in various sizes/shapes) and the 2-4-6-8 Challenge. For that one I used 2 photos; 4 ephemera pieces; 6 tags; 8 enamel dots.
Life is Better with Dogs: I used Everyday Explorers stamp; Queen & Co pattern paper and polka dot washi tape; Doodlebug dog bone washi tape; Studio Calico veneer stars; Bella Blvd pattern paper; and Echo Park ephemera (I love my dog collection and My Dog collection)
This layout was submitted to the ACOT Grab 5 Challenge. There is a list of things to choose from and I chose I used stars (7 – 6 veneers and 1 die cut); TH distress ink (inked edges and stamped the “this is why I’m a dog person” element); ephemera; animal sticker (the doggie); and rounded corners (photos and papers).
