Another one for Paper Issues…

Standard

Hey everyone!

I’m linking up another layout for the linky party over at Paper Issues!

This one again meets the criteria of being one of my most favourite layouts that makes me smile whenever I see it! :-) It also meets a second criteria of using stickers in a creative way.  All of my journaling I did on this layout was with stickers!!!

The cat in the hat…

Standard

Hello there!

Today over at Child’s Play Challenges, a new challenge was posted!

index

Create a layout based on this image of the “Cat in the Hat” children’s book.

I was inspired by the colours and created a layout using predominantly black, red and white with a touch of blue.

I used patterned paper from Basic Grey.

The flair is from October Afternoon and the sticker phrases from Bella Blvd.  The enamel dots are Teresa Collins.

To create some dimension on the page, I popped some of the triangles up and layered some triangles on top of each other.  Both the chipboard triangles and the wooden triangles are from Creative Embellishments.  The letters are American Crafts and Jillibean Soup.

So head on over to the Child’s Play Challenges blog if you haven’t already, and check out how the rest of the DT was inspired! And then don’t forget to play along!!

Happy scrapping!

This layout was created using sketch #277 over at Creative Scrappers.

 

Anything goes…

Standard

Well, Paper Issues is at it again! Making it super easy to win scrapbooking goodies!!!!

The linky party this time around is “Anything Goes”! How can you not participate??

There’s a small set of criteria they would like to see on your project, but really, there’s nothing there we haven’t used at one time or another!!

So, I went with the first criteria of being one of my favourite layouts – one that makes me smile every time I see it, and it also meets another criteria, using tags on your project.

It’s an older layout, but one that I LOVE!

I stamped the hearts using a heart shaped paper clip!

So head on over now to Paper Issues and link up your project! Because, really? Who doesn’t love free stuff??!!

Happy scrapping!

The Scrapbooker’s Blog Tour…

Standard

Hi everyone!!!

Blog hops are a lot of fun and they’re a great way to find inspiration! So when I was asked to be a part of the Scrapbooker’s Blog Tour, I was honoured.

I was invited by Devra Hunt.  I’ve had the pleasure of working with Devra on a few design teams and  I love her style.

Thank you Devra, for including me in this tour!

Here are a few questions we were asked to answer:

1. What am I working on right now?
I’m trying to get some design team assignments done!!! It’s been difficult as I’ve had to work a lot lately.
 
2. How long does it take me to create a project?
I’m constantly teased by my scrappy friends that it takes me forever to complete a layout and it’s true.  A few hours for sure…

3. What are my favorite things to create with at the moment?
I’m in love with the chipboard over at Creative Embellishments and use some on pretty much every layout I create! I’m also using a lot of bright colours and bold patterns, but I always do!  I don’t think this will ever change!!

4. How does my creating process work?
It’s not too difficult.  I pick pictures and papers first, lay them out how I want them, decide where the title will go and how big it will be and add that, and then my embellishments and journaling are added at the end.  It’s funny that even though my “process” is quite easy, I still manage to take a LONG time to complete a layout!! LOL!!! I guess I take a long time picking what goes onto the page!

5. How do I become inspired and stay inspired?

I’m constantly inspired by layouts I see on Pinterest and by my fellow scrapbookers.

6. What is my signature style? 

90% of my layouts are bright and bold using lots of patterned paper and tons of little photos!  My style tends to be a bit more clean with the focus on the paper and pictures.

Now it’s time to tag three scrapbookers I love. It was really hard to choose, but the three ladies I chose each have their own unique style and are Canadian!! ;-)

I hope you will find them as inspiring as I do.

another LCOM challenge…

Standard

Good morning!

There’s a new sketch up over at Let’s Capture Our Memories and it’s a great one!

Sept. 7, 2014

I chose to use a bunch of tiny pictures where the 4X6 photo goes, of course! It’s what I do! LOL!

DSCN9822

The patterned paper is from Crate Paper, letters from American Crafts and the cork stars from Studio Calico.

DSCN9819

I used my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 25 tool and my Round 14 with the silver brad settings.  I also did some fussy cutting and cut out the cute little party hats from the patterned paper.  I taped the vellum down with some masking tape.

So go and check out what the rest of the design team did and if you decide to use the sketch, make sure you share it with us!

Happy scrapping!

Playing along again…

Standard

Happy Saturday everyone!

I’m playing along again over at Paper Issues!!!  I’m using the same criteria as last time – use Jillibean Soup products and focus on journaling.  The only difference, is this is a NEW layout!

This page is actually a re-do.  While going back through my scrapbook pages, I found the layout with this picture and just didn’t really like it.  But I loved the picture so I decided to re-do the page.  I’ll still keep my other page of course, but now I will have 2 layouts about the same event.  Anyone else do this?  Please tell me I’m not the only one!! LOL!!

I used patterned paper by Jillibean Soup and Fancy Pants Designs, stickers from MAMBI and Doodlebug Designs, card stock from Co-ordinations, bling/pearls from Michaels, and Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 14 with their silver brad settings and the Round 25 tool.
