PageMaps Lily Bee Sketch Contest

Hey everyone. Here is my entry for PageMaps Lily Bee sketch contest. I used My Mind's Eye 'Indie Chic' paper and buttons. The paper roses were cut using Spellbinders bitty blossoms die. The burlap roses were made by brushing some Mod Podge onto a piece of burlap, cutting out a spiral circle and then rolling it up. The Mod Podge keeps the edges of the burlap from fraying. Very easy and very cute!! Some washi tape, stitching and ink splatters (my new fav technique) completed the layout. Below are some close ups and the sketch. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.      ~Michelle

Birthday Layout

Hey everyone. Here's a recent class I taught at Shabby Shutters. I used Bobunny's 'Surprise' collection. This line is just so much fun!! It's perfect for kiddy celebrations of any kind. It's hard to tell from the above picture, but all the confetti on the left hand side is enclosed in vellum that is stitched down. A fun technique I found on Scrapbook and Cards Today blog. The banners are also stitched down. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

PageMaps On the Border Challenge

Hey everyone. Here's my entry for PageMaps On the Border Challenge. I used Teresa Collins 'Summer Stories' collection for this layout. Because it is featuring none other than Mr. Tim Holtz I decided to use some of his products. The buttons, paper clip and word stick are from his Ideology line. The little camera was made from grunge paper and cut using one of his Mover and Shaper dies. It was colored with distress ink and stains. The little ticket stub is one of his Stamper Anonymous stamps. Below is a close up and a copy of  the sketch. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

My Mind's Eye May Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone. Here is my entry for My Mind's Eye May sketch challenge. I used the 6x6 pad of the 'Kate & Co' collection. Instead of little squares I decided to use hexagons. I also used a hexagon mask to add a bit of color. I stitched along the outside edge instead of journaling. I used distress inks and a water brush for the splatters. A little bling and washi tape completed the page. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

PageMaps Color Suite Challenge

Hey everyone. Here's my entry to PageMaps Color Suite Challenge. The challenge was to create a layout based on a sketch using the colors navy, green, grey, pink and yellow. I used Pink Paislee's 'Cottage Farms' collection. I love the touches of pink , yellow and grey that the paper has. Very soft and beautiful. I added some hand made flowers using Tim's Tattered Floral die and finished it off with some stitching and pearls. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.



Crop & Create Layout

Hey everyone. Just wanted to share another layout class at Shabby Shutters. We used Carta Bella's 'So Noted' collection. I absolutely LOVE the soft colors in this line. Carta Bella is one of my faves. The texture and thickness of their paper is awesome. We also used a Prima mask and one of We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 punches. It was finished off with some punched flowers and a little bling. The pictures are from the first Crop & Create weekend in Moncton. Sherry, Darly and I took some classes and met some wonderful and inspiring ladies. It was a great weekend. The layout was inspired by a PageMaps Project 12 sketch. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
