Hello everyone and Happy Saturday! Here’s some layouts I’ve worked on this month using up my stash from both June & July Use It or Lose It posts.
Enjoying Their Indepence: Studio Calico kit, Bo Bunny Bling (July)
You Make Me Smile: Studio Calico kit (July)
Miss Diva: Studio Calico kit (July)
Proud to be an American Dog: chipboard alphas (July)
Bonez, 24/7: Scrapbooker’s Painted Page (June)
I’ve got 8 more days in July and I still haven’t used HALF of what I pulled out for July’s Use it or Lose It Challenge! Time to step it up!
I had a wonderful weekend scrapping with my friends. Our Summer Crop was this past Friday and Saturday at my house. Great food, awesome convo, great time with friends. I managed to do 4 layouts and get started on another one. So each day this week, I’ll share with you one of the layouts.
The first one I did was for ACOT’s Music Challenge. Barb wanted us to select a song that makes us emotional. It could be happiness, sadness, excitement, etc. Since I’m still working on my New Home Owner Pictures, I chose the song “I Love The Way You Love Me” by John Michael Montgomery. Its my husband’s fave song and when it comes on the radio, he turns it up and will sing it to me.
I used mostly Teresa Collections “Nine & Co.” (pattern papers, stickers, brads), with cardstock/flowers from Recollections and bling from Zva Creative.
The layout is based on Sketches in Thyme Sketch #153. And its by one of my fave designers Shawn Lahr! 🙂
Here are some close-ups:
Nuts About Sketches Sketch #358 is bitter sweet for me, as its the last sketch for my DT term.
With that said, its also a great sketch for using up those scraps! After this layout, I am down to 3 very small scraps of paper with about 1/3 of the sticker sheet from Carta Bella’s “Its a Celebration” collection.
I stuck to the sketch pretty well, with using mist in place of journaling, and some large stickers for the title and larger circles.
My brads are a mix of Basic Grey and WRMKs, and the washi tape is Bella Blvd.
I have truly enjoyed being on Nuts About Sketch‘s DT for not one, but TWO consective terms. Thank you Shawn. For all the fabulous sketches I got to work with.
I had a blast with Nuts About Sketches sketch #357, and once you see the photos, you’ll see why!
Miss Penny Lane is the star of this show today! Its her 2nd birthday photos taken last November.
As you can tell, I stuck pretty good to the sketch. My photos with my products just went with the sketch so well, I made little changes to it!
My products are:
Background paper, yellow paper: Bo Bunny
pattern paper, stickers: Carta Bella
brads: Basic Grey
washi tape: Queen & Co
Nuts About Sketches newest layout is a two pager, and I used both sides this time to help me scrap one of my dearest friends’ 30th Surprise Birthday Party!
As you can see, I stuck with the sketch pretty well, including the 7X5 photo on the 1st page with the banner; but instead of 3 smaller photos on top right side – I just used 4 6X4’s.
I fussy cut the banner by using a sticker banner from Carta Bella, putting it on the orange side of Echo Park sticker paper, and then fussy cutting it and flipping it over so I can use the lighter blue side of the banner, to better suit my needs. Alphas are Echo Park too, with brads from WRMKs.
Tag is from my stash, and the cute arrow with the brad is also by Echo Park. Washi is Bella Blvd:
The Echo Park collection I used is “That’s My Boy” – leftovers from my step son’s album. But the sticker at the bottom – “Clearly up to No Good” just says it all! The orange chevron brad with the 2 smaller yellow ones are also Echo Park; with the veneer stars by Studio Calico.
This next layout uses Nuts About Sketches sketch #344.
As you can see, I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to better suit my needs. All of those papers? Scraps from the previous layout! Add stickers and brads and I was done!
Nuts About Sketches latest sketch was so much fun to work with. Here it is, in all its glory:
And here is my take on it:
I used alot of vintage Basic Grey (Marjolaine with a touch of Hipster). The brads are from WRMKs; chevrons are Studio Calico; and alphas are K & Company.
I really loved working with the new sketch by Shawn over at Nust About Sketches. It has so many possibilities for the scrapper to make it their own.
Here is my layout, featuring photos of my hubby standing proudly and ultimately making his first meal using a new gas grill he had gotten for Christmas.
And here is the awesome sketch:
As you can see, I didn’t use one large photo, but instead, used 4 4X6, and staggering them a bit to make it more appealing.
My papers are by Simple Stories, brads and SewEasy by WRMKs and the stickers are from my stash.
Good afternoon everyone! Today I have my FIRST reveal on The Nuts About Sketches Blog!
And its based on this amazing sketch by Shawn (Sketch 307):
I loved the “torn” banners for journaling and used one large photo instead of the two smaller ones. This is one sketch that I’ll definetly use again!
Here is a close up of the journaling:
I used mostly Basic Grey “Fact & Fiction” collection, with washi tape by Queen & Co and brads by WRMKs.
