New challenge at CPC…

Standard

Hello everyone!

There’s new challenge up over at Child’s Play Challenges.

This time around we were asked to get inspired by The Flintstones!

I have to admit, I didn’t get especially creative for this one! LOL!  I had taken a picture of my son recently while he was playing Minecraft and when searching through my pictures for this challenge, I noticed the Flintstones just happen to be on the TV at the time, so that’s the picture I used!

I used a sketch from Creative Scrappers for this layout designed by Jenny Evans.

So head on over to the blog and check out what the rest of the design team came up with.  Then we would love to see how you’re inspired by The Flintstones!!!

Here’s what I used on this layout:

Happy scrapping!

A scrapbooking video…

Standard

Hello there!

I was absolutely thrilled when Sarah Swann asked me if she could use one of MY layouts as inspiration for her next scrapbooking video!  She was drawn to my use of bold patterned papers and chevrons! :-D

You can check out the video here!

Sarah produces scrapbooking videos showing how she creates her layouts.  She talks through the videos sharing what’s she’s doing as she goes and gives tips and shows techniques.  The videos are great if you are just starting out or even if you’ve been scrapbooking for awhile.  You never know when you’ll learn something new!

Happy scrapping!

LCOM sketch #85…

Standard

Hey there!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday morning!

If you’re looking for some inspiration before you sit down to scrapbook, grab your coffee and check out what the design team created with this sketch over at Let’s Capture Our Memories. The sketch was created by the very talented Laura Whitaker.

Aug. 10, 2014

I really enjoyed working with the sketch and as with most sketches I use, I added more pictures than what is shown on the sketch.

I decided to go with a multi-patterned background, combining papers from Crate Paper, Studio Calico and Echo Park.  Because the background is so busy, I kept the embellishments simple.

??????????

I used some enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye, a sticker from Echo Park, cork arrows from Studio Calico, flair from October Afternoon and wood veneer from Creative Embellishments.   I ripped the edges of one of the patterned papers for a little texture.

??????????

The letters I used are from Simple Stories.  I used 2 different types of letters to make my title, creating almost a sub-title with the second line. Then when I found I didn’t have all the letters in the grey colour I was using, I decided to use a different colour for 2 letters instead of trying to find other letters that coordinated perfectly as these ones did!  Notice the “T”s in “the” and “market” are brown?  Looks like it was meant to be like that, doesn’t it? ;-)

??????????

So why don’t you head on over the the LCOM blog, check out all the inspiration and then give the sketch a try?

And don’t forget to link it up to the blog when you’re done for a chance to win a prize!!

Can’t wait to see what you create!

Happy scrapping!

Paper Issues…

Standard

Good morning everyone!

I was invited by a friend to join a site called “Paper Issues”.  I had never been to the site before so I decided to check it out!

They have a challenge going on right now called “Mix Tape” and there are a ton of different types of layouts you can submit to win a prize!  AND you don’t have to create a new project to submit. SO, I thought I would link up one of my older projects for a chance to win! Because, really? Who doesn’t like free stuff?? ;-)

DT layout - AAB - first day photos

I’m submitting this layout because using washi tape on a page is one of the challenges!

So, if you’ve never heard of Paper Issues either, check them out here! They’re a great little site!

Happy scrapping!
