Lovely Day

Hey everyone. Here's my take on the December 30th sketch at The Studio Challenges. I used 'The Yellow Door' collection from Fancy Pants for this layout of my niece. She's growing up so fast. The background was inspired by a Friday Night Live by Vicki Boutin. I applied watered down art crayons to the background and then stamped some circles with a styrofoam cup. I mixed some art crayons together to achieve the color I was looking for. I then watered down some of Vicki's acrylic paint and stamped some circles using a piece of bubble wrap. Love how it turned out. Below are some close ups and the sketch. Thanks for stopping by.

Dear Guinny

Hey everyone.  I’m back with my take on another great stash challenge from Scrap Our Stash. I did actually use my stash on this one, which is always nice. The collection I used was 'Snow Patrol' from Simple Stories. From the Saturday Cartoons challenge I was inspired by the dog and the word friends. I added a few extra elements to the sketch. For the 3+ stars, I used 3 small star stickers that was on the sticker sheet from the kit I used. Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by!!

Twinkle Lights

Hey everyone. Happy New Year!! I have a layout to share that is based on the December sketch at My Creative Scrapbook. I absolutely love this sketch by Laura Whitaker, and couldn't wait to develop some Christmas pictures and play. I used an older Fancy Pants Christmas line called 'Holiday Hustle' for this page of my grandson checking out the ornaments on the tree. Below is the sketch and some close ups. Thanks for stopping by!!

Tis the Season

Hey everyone. I have a layout to share that is based on two December challenges. The first is from Cuts2Luv. The two items I picked from the mood board are picture:Christmas spirit and embellishments:snowflakes. The second was The Studio Challenges where you were to use gold on your project. I embossed some gold snowflakes on vellum as well as splattering gold color shine around the page. I used the Merry & Bright collection from Simple Stories for this layout of my grandson helping to pick out our Christmas trees. The cutfile that I used was from the Hip Kit Club. Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey everyone. Merry Christmas!!! Hope you had a wonderful holiday and were able to enjoy it with family and friends. It’s hard to believe that this is the last challenge of the year. For this last blend a sketch challenge at Scrap Our Stash, I used the bottom of the left sketch and the top of the right sketch. We were to also use 3 or more of the same type of embellishment. I used 3 flower clusters, 3 orange word stickers and 3 stamped burgundy circles. I used Simple Stories 'Forever Fall' line for this page.  I love the quote that I used. Very fitting and true. Below are some close ups and the challenge.  Thanks for stopping by and make sure to come back in the new year for some new challenges!!

All Bundled Up

Hey everyone. Can you believe that December is here?? I don’t know where the time goes. I have my take on the Golden Globe Stash Challenge at Scrap Our Stash for this month. We were to create a winter layout and use snowflake embellishments. I created a page of my daughter and grandson out in their yard last winter. I used Simple Stories 'Sub Zero' collection. For the snowflake embellishments I used some snowflake ephemera and also embossed some snowflakes on vellum and then fussy cut them. Love how they turned out!! Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful Ordinary Life

Hey everyone. I'm back with November's Blend A Sketch challenge at Scrap Our Stash. This month's challenge had 2 great sketches to draw inspiration from. I used the sketch on the right and added elements from the sketch on the left. From the left sketch I used the doilie, the thin vertical strips and the pennants. The stash part of the challenge was to use pennants or banners. I used Pinkfresh Studio's 'Indigo Hills 2' collection for this layout of my niece and her bestie. I absolutely LOVE this line. The colors are stunning. It's hard to tell from the photo, but I fussy cut the leaves from another piece of the same paper I used for the background. When attaching them to the background I overlapped them a bit from the bottom image. This created a cool effect. Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.
