Hey everyone. Finally getting around to sharing a couple layouts that I created for National Scrapbooking Day/Weekend. There were so many challenges/events to take part in. I decided to take part in some challenges from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. The first was a sketch challenge. I used the 'Wild at Heart' collection from Cocoa Vanilla for this layout of my daughter and grandson.
The second challenge was to scrap lift a layout from a member of the Cocoa Vanilla design team. There were so many gorgeous pages to choose from. I decided to choose a page from Anna Komenda. Once again I used a line from Cocoa Vanilla. This time I went with their new collection called 'Legendary'.
Absolutely LOVE all things from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. Hope you had a chance to play along with some of the challenges. Thanks for stopping by.
Hey everyone. There's a fun shape challenge at The Studio Challenges today. You are to use 3 squares, 2 circles and 1 triangle. I used 3 larger squares of pattern paper behind my photo. For the circles I used 1 flair button and 1 punched circle and for the triangle I used a flag with the word fun. I used the 'Legendary' collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio for this page of my grandson and his dad. For the background I totally scrap lifted a page from Vicki Boutin. Using distress ink I first applied some with the packaging technique. I then stencil stamped and stamped with the ink. I also stamped using the same colour in distress paint. Finally I added splatters with watered down distress ink. Absolutely love how it turned out. For added texture I also added some cheese cloth behind half of my photo. Below are some close ups. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey everyone. There's a new challenge at The Studio Challenges today. I would also like to welcome 3 new designers to the team. The challenge is to create a page about scrapbooking, as National Scrapbooking Day was last weekend. I decided to create a layout about my love of scrapbooking and how my creative process has changed. I used the beautiful 'Bohemian Dream' line from Cocoa Vanilla Studio for my page. For the background I used watered down distress ink and applied it using the packaging technique and stencil stamping. Below are some close ups. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey everyone. I have a layout that was inspired by a sketch challenge at My Stamping Studio. I was also inspired from a mood board challenge at Cocoa Vanilla Studio for International Scrapbook Day. I used the 'Teen Spirit' line from Echo Park Paper for this page of my nephew's school picture. For the background I used watered down distress ink and applied it with the packaging technique and stencil stamping. Below are some close ups. Thanks for stopping by.

Hey everyone. Happy National Scrapbooking Day/Weekend!!! Hope you had a chance to take part in some of the activities. There was A LOT happening!! I took part in some of the fun at Cocoa Vanilla Studio and will be sharing those pages in the next couple days. Today I have a layout that was inspired by the Tic Tac Toe challenge at The Studio Challenges. I went with the right side column which was enamel dots, washi tape and tag. I used Vicki Boutin's 'Let's Wander' collection for this page of my daughter and grandson. Love this line!! For the background I used watered down art crayons and applied the colour with the packaging technique and stencil stamping. Below are some close ups and the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.
