Let's Stick Together


Hey everyone. Here's my take on the November You + Me = Love challenge at Scrap the Boys. The photo is of me and my grandson. I used PhotoPlay's 'Stuck on You' collection. This is such a fun line. For the background I applied some modelling paste through a Vicki Boutin stencil and then added watered down distress ink with a paint brush and the packaging technique. I also added splatters. The cutfile I used was from JustNick. I was also inspired by a sketch from the weekly sketches at Hip Kit Club. Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

The Best


Hey everyone. I have my take on this month's Golden Globe Stash Challenge at Scrap Our Stash. The movie inspired me to create a page of my grandson. A definite star in my family. Instead of pattern paper I used a cut file from Paige Evans and also used 3 enamel star shapes. I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio's 'Hello Sunshine' for this layout. Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

Bloom and Grow


Hey everyone. Here's my take on the October sketch at The Studio Challenges. I used the gorgeous 'Midnight' line from Cocoa Vanilla Studio for this layout of my niece. I flipped the sketch because of the way my niece was facing. I didn't want her to be looking off the layout. I applied modelling paste through a Carta Bella stencil, and then applied watered down distress ink with a brush and packaging technique. Below is the sketch and some close ups. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey everyone. I have a layout to share that's inspired by the Dotty About Dots challenge at The Studio Challenges. The challenge was to use anything with dots.  I used enamel dots, ephemera with dots and I added splatters all around the page. I used Echo Park Paper's 'I Am Mom' collection with this adorable photo of my daughter and grandson. I used a brayer to apply the watered down distress on the background. The sketch that inspired this page was from PageMaps. Below are some close ups. Thanks for stopping by.

Thankful


Hey everyone. I have a layout to share based on the October mood board at Cuts2Luv. The photos are of my daughter and her little family, out for a walk around our property. I used 'The Yellow Door' collection for this page. It's Fancy Pants' newest line. Kinda funky, but I like it !! For the challenge you are to pick at least 2 items from the mood board and use a Cuts2Luv product. I used the sketch and lace embellishment from the mood board, and included a today flair button from Cuts2Luv. Below are some close ups and the mood board. Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Little Prince


Hey everyone. I’m back with another Blend-A-Sketch challenge from Scrap Our Stash. I love both sketches and wanted to use as much as possible from both, so I simply took the right sketch and added it to the background of the left sketch. I also added a cluster at the bottom for a bit of journaling. For the stash part of the challenge I used some diagonal striped paper as a layer under my photos. I used Echo Park Paper's 'Once Upon a Time' collection for this layout of my grandson overlooking his kingdom. Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful


Hey everyone. I have my take on the October sketch at Sketchabilities to share today. I used Pink Paislee's 'Auburn Lane' collection for this layout of my daughter. For the background I painted on several layers of watered down distress ink, with a wide flat brush. Really love how it turned out. I then splattered more distress ink and stain around the page. Below is the sketch and some close ups. Make sure to check out the blog for a ton of inspiration. Thanks for stopping by.
