Hello everyone and no time long “see”! This month has been a busy one and I figured I’d share with you the layouts I’ve created this month by posting them all together.
To start with, Saturday, May 2nd, was National Scrapbooking Day (NSD). There were online crops, challenges, games and blog hops galore! A Cherry On Top hosted a FABULOUS NSD crop and it lasted THREE days! At last count, there were a total of 42 challenges! 42!! I only did about a handful since they were due within one week. But one of our regular members is hosting a REWIND NSD Challenge where you can complete the ones you didn’t get to do.
I’ll show you the ones I did for the actual NSD, then I’ll post the ones I’ve been working on lately for the REWIND challenge. We do have until the end of the month! So I might be able to squeeze in one or two! Who knows!
I did a variety of layouts too – my nephews, furbabies, nephew’s 1st birthday and meeting my bio father/family for the first time.
In no particular order….
After NSD festivities were over with, the girl in charge of the Rewind challenge created an NSD Rewind Challenge. So here are those layouts that I’ve been able to work on throughout the month.
We have until Sunday, so I’m hoping go get a few more done. Wish me luck!
Hello everyone! I took a break from scrapbooking Christmas last weekend and instead, scrapped Thanksgiving! From 2018!
Blessed: I used Reminisce background paper; Bo Bunny banner and journal spot, Elle’s Studio blue word pattern paper, and a Freckled Fawn start paper Clip. Everything else – the polka dot paper, plaid paper, hedeghot sticker, cotton sticker and the leaf sticker are from a PhotoPlay Fall collection.
The design is based on this week’s Becky Fleck Sketch at ACOT:
Bless this Home: I used Bazzill cardstock; PhotoPlay pattern papers and pumpkin stickers; Bo Bunny banner and tree cluster (fussy cut from a journal tag) and Reminisce photo corners and word stickers.
Always Stay Humble and Kind: I used Bo Bunny papers and brads; a PhotoPlay raccoon sticker; Paper Studio denim washi tape and a Reminisce title sticker
Smile: I used Bo Bunny papers, die cuts, brads and chipboard embellishments; an Echo Park stencil; Thickers alphas and a Freckled Fawn gold doily. The gold paste is actually a combination of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pale Gold and Gold Stickles. I ended up making my own gold glitter paste.
Funny story about that gold glitter paste. Saturday night, I just couldn’t find my gold modeling paste or my gold glimmer/glitter pastes. I found my Nuvo drops, my stickles, my gold gelato, and my gold high impact tattered angels paint but no pastes. So I gave up. Came into my room Sunday morning and thought, well, I better make my own since stores are closed. I tried several mixtures but didn’t like the color (too dull) or texture (too wet). Until I stepped back and made it simpler. I used my Nuvo Drops in Pale Gold and my palette knife with my stencil then came over with it with my Gold Stickles and a soft brush. Let it dry and wholla! Very pretty. I actually prefer THIS over my regular stuff. LOL. Oh and guess what? As soon as I was done with my layout, guess what I found? My gold Glitter paste! Oh well.
The gold looks SO MUCH better IRL and it ended up being rainy and cloudy on Sunday so I couldn’t take a great picture. But here’s the close up:
Good afternoon everyone. Yes, you read right. Christmas layouts in Spring! And its not even last years Christams photos either. Its 2018!
I chose to scrap Christmas because one of the items listed as a “Motivational Challenge” over at ACOT was to create a kit and make a few layouts and/or cards with it. I’m horrible with kits but I only have limited supplies in the Christmas Scrapbooking World. I have one 12×12 paper pad, a 6×8 paper pad, a bag of embellishments and a small container of washi tape.
And here is the kit I created:
And here are the layouts I created using that kit. I did 1 two pager and 4 singles.
Santa Baby: I used everything from my kit except I added some gold heat embossing
The next two layouts are from Christmas 2018, but I didn’t use very much from the kit because they are photos of my girls opening their Christmas presents. I ended up using the DCWV “Christmas Pals” paper stack and PhotoPlay “Muttcracker” collection.
I probably have about 4 more layouts I can do for Christmas 2018 and I’ll be done!
Hello everyone! Last weekend I managed to get 4 layouts completed and they were all for Jasmine and Shelby’s Puppy Photo Shoot from almost 3 years ago. And guess what? I completed the album AND have just bits/pieces leftover from the collection kit I was using – Doodlebug’s “Puppy Love”.
Love at furst sight: Design based on the Becky Fleck Sketch #166. Products used is Bo Bunny background paper and green pattern paper; Basic Grey yellow-orange pattern paper. Everything else is Doodlebug.
“Love You”: Combined two Graphic Design Rewind Challenges – use of Quotations and having no spaces between my title. I used Bo Bunny alphas, Basic Grey chipboard quotations, Jillibean Soup “today” sticker and the rest is Doodlebug.
Fun Times: Another layout submitted to the Graphic Design Rewind Challenge. This one was for “Trails”. I used Bo Bunny pattern papers, Doodlebug enamel dots and paper clips, Thickers, Suzy’s Zoo word phrase stickers, Forever in Time glittered paw prints and ball sticker. The doggie sticker near the title was from stash.
Its’a Dog Thing: I used The Paper Studio cardstock and “dog” sticker, Doodlebug pattern papers and enamel dots, Echo Park “BARK” cut out and alphas and Fancy Pants chipboard.
Hello everyone! With the stay-at-home orders we are all under, I managed to get some scrapbooking done. Yesterday I did 2 layouts and a card. One of those layouts is based on the ACOT Becky Fleck Sketch #165.
And this is what I came up with:
I used two photos instead of 4 smaller ones. Papers/tags are all from PhotoPlay, and the title/border sticker are from Reminisce.
The products I used were Bazzill cardstock; Bo Bunny/Pebbles pattern papers; MAMBI chipboard stickers; Fancy Pants flair; Echo Park border sticker; Anna Griffin “sending hugs” sticker; Recollections washi tape; The Paper Studio triangle stickers; and pink paw print stickers from the Dollar Store.
CUTE: Submitted to ACOT’s Book Lover’s Challenge (I used Option 2, 5 different pattern papers) and Alphabet Challenge (using the letter F for my theme. Furbabies!). I used Kiwi Lane papers; The Paper Studio alphas; Freckled Fawn enamel dots/shapes
Hello everyone! This next layout features Mr. Jackson hanging out with li’l Shelby a few years ago. And when I say “Little Shelby”, I mean 3 months old!
Aren’t those the cutest pics ever! I used Kiwi Lane pattern papers and even fussy cut the “I want to MEOW with you forever” heart. I used a cut file and backed some of the hearts with scraps from the KL collection I was using. The alphas, veneers, die cuts and stickers are from a variety of Jillibean Soup collections.
Good afternoon everyone! I was able to get a couple of layouts done this weekend and they feature Shelby and Jasmine when they were little!
Refueling: I did this layout for the A Cherry On Top Color Challenge. I had to use at least 2 of the colors posted (I used all 5). My products are blue pattern papers by Kiwi Lane; red and green pattern papers and the stickers by PhotoPLay; alphas by Jillibean Soup; clear and black dots by Queen & Co. The washi tape is from stash (probably got it from Hobby Lobby)
And the color palette I used is:
I Woof You! One of our members in the ACOT community threw a Valentine’s Day party that included games and challenges. One of the challenges was to use a pun! Instead of titling my layout “I Love You” I chose “I Woof You”. I used Kiwi Lane papers and Reminisce Papers.
