Hey everyone. Here's a layout based on Stuck?!Sketches September 15th sketch and Cuts2Luv's September challenge. I used Kaiser Craft's 'Wildflower' collection for this layout of my niece. This is one beautiful line!! Because the photo was vertical, I rotated the sketch. For the Cuts2Luv challenge you had to use 2 elements from the monthly moodboard and some of their products. From the moodboard I used a kid photo and doilie embellishment. Below are some close ups, the moodboard and the sketch. Make sure to check out both of these blogs as there is a TON of inspiration to be found on each. Thanks for stopping by.


PEI Splash

Aye Aye Captain

Hey everyone.  Here's another great sketch/word challenge from Scrap Our Stash. The layout is of my nephew, out on his grandfather's boat. I received the Secrets of the Sea collection from Bella Blvd in a kit club, and wondered how I would use it. It was perfect for this layout!!! For the word challenge I used the following:

L : Lawn Fawn twine
E : ephemera
A : alphas
R : Ranger distress ink
N : navy blue

Make sure to check out the blog for lots of inspiration. Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.

Love This Little Face

Hey everyone. Here's my take on September's tic tac toe challenge at Scrap Our Stash. I dug deep into my stash and found a 6x6 paper pad from Basic Grey called 'Bowties'. Because of the name, I then decided to make a little bowtie from a Sizzix die.

For the background I used Vicki Boutin's art crayons from American Crafts. I used the packaging technique to apply the color. I am also getting the hang of my Cameo, and using a cut file from JustNick, I was able to create the large, open title. For the challenge I used a diagonal row: cork, ruler and circle. The cork hearts were from American Crafts. The washi tape ruler and saying was from Cocoa Vanilla Studio, and the flair button from Cuts2Luv. Below are some more close ups and the challenge.
