Superstar

Good afternoon everyone! Today I’m sharing with you a super cute layout of Mr. Jeffrey that I did over the weekend!

Its based on the latest Let’s Get Sketchy sketch:

I was inspired by the large star, and chose to use my Cricut to cut out the extra-large basketball (since Jeffrey was posing with HIS little basketball toy!). I used some black Tattered Angels mist and Studio Calico veneer stars. Washi tapes are by Queen & Co. I colored in the openings of the letters – “p”, “e” and “a” to be submitted to ACOT’s Graphic Design Challenge. And since that die cut basketball is so large, its also for ACOT’s Size Matters challenge!

TFL! 🙂

Sleep tight, sweet little Jackson

Good evening everyone! Its been raining off and on all day, so what’s a girl to do? Stay inside and scrap! And this layout uses the newest sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy:

lgs-3-1

I LOVED the design on this one. I used washi tapes for the diagnol part, and Tattered Angels mist and Shimmerz watercolors for the mixed media part.

I used Doodlebug “Kitten Smitten” collection – papers, die cuts, washi tapes and stickers.

The alphas are a quite the mixture. I used Cosmo Cricket (yellow alphas), My Little Shoebox (pink alphas), Basic Grey (grey alphas) and Amy Tangerine (black thickers). I chose a long title for this layout to be used for ACOT’s Use Your Stash Challenge, which was to use 2 or more different alphas, and to dig deep in your stash.

A dog and her kitty

Hi everyone!! I have a super cute layout to show you, featuring li’l Jackson and Miss Penny

Its based on the newest sketch by Let’s Get Sketchy

jan-week1-1

I used PhotoPlay’s newest papers/die cuts, with enamel dots by Freckled Fawn. The see-thru arrows are by Studio Calico and mini alphas/numbers are Basic Grey.

This layout is also being submitted to ACOT’s Supply List Challenge w/ a Twist. Out of 10 items, we have to use at least 5 of them. Mine are pp, cardstock, arrows, enamel dots, die cuts and numbers. The “twist” is to either use another item from her LIST OR choose one of your own, that you HOARD. I hoard ALOT…but…I needed a title and what best to use are mini alphas. I bought them in each and every color – Basic Grey, Cosmo Cricket, My Little Shoebox..I went nuts when they were popular. I’m sure they still are. So that was my 6th item.

TFL! 🙂

I will always love you

Hi everyone! Today is a gorgeous day and not as humid here too. I’d like to share with you a page about Ruby and Bear. I believe its my first one since Ruby passed away last month.

Its based on the latest sketch by Let’s Get Sketchy:

I chose the title from the movie “The Bodyguard” for ACOT’s Musci Challenge:

That large “LOVE” is from my Januay Use it or Lose It (second chance item). I’m so glad I’m still trying to use these. They are very large, one worded titles, so they don’t fit EVERY layout..but hey, two so far this month!

My papers are also by Pebbles, die cuts/chipboard are from MME, and the little clear stickers are Simple Stories.

TFL! 🙂

You & Me

Good evening everyone! Its been a while since I’ve scrapped that the layout/project wasn’t for a design team! LOL. Since the holidays have winded down, I’m able to scrap a little at night now. Which is great! So to start, I used the Week One sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy:

team-a-week-1

I really fell in love with all the layers and the floral cluster. So here is my take on it:

you-me

Photo is of my husband and I at dinner from 2012 – our 5th Anniversary. The papers are all Crate Paper and the die cuts – floral piece and title – are from my Cricut “Cricut Alphabet” cartridge. That was one of the carts I challenged myself to use this month. 🙂

The chipboard flower is Bo Bunny and stencil is Studio Calico. My ink is from Clearsnap and the heart brads are from my stash.

I am also submitting this layout to 2 ACOT Challenges – Title and Ever-Changing. The title challenge is like a “Best of 2016” style challenge where Deanna is allowing us to go back and do any/all of the Title 2016 Challenges. I went back and chose April – “YOU & ME” as your title PLUS at least ONE heart. I have Four!

I also chose Ever-Changing Challenge. Susan is alternating what each month is and this month – use a stencil! Any way. So I used a dauber and my ink to use my stencil.

TFL! 🙂

Sunshine & Daydreams

Hello everyone! Today I worked with the latest sketch by Let’s Get Sketchy

14502683_1761097940829074_6147136141958640520_n

I was really drawn to the sketch but didn’t know what I was going do. Mixed media/stenciling or paper scraps. And this is what I came up with:

sunshine-daydreams

I chose this very happy photo of Penny and Bear from last spring. As I was going thru some papers, I found a super cute cascading hearts stencil and decided to use a Faber-Castell gelato in banana to get started. I sealed it with a glaze.

dscn6905

The various word art stickers are from Simple Stories (as well as the stencil and pattern papers). The sequins are MME and Darice; with the arrows by Studio Calico.

The pattern papers, stencil and stickers are from the Simple Stories “Good Day Sunshine”, which is also from my November Use It or Lose It Challenge.

TFL! 🙂

Meow & Forever

Hello everyone! With my new kitty Jackson, I decided to get back to scrapping kitties. So I pulled this one photo of Athena (she belonged to my brother and sister in law) from several years ago and older stash (DCWV, TPC) and using a sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy, I came up with this:

meow-forever

And I stuck to the sketch pretty well:

team-1

I really loved this single photo, simple design. Very fun to use!

I combined this with ACOT’s 3 in a Row Challenge, choosing the top row (3 or more pattern papers, project life card, frame).

TFL! 🙂

Hello Love

Hello everyone! Hope you all have had a good weekend. Can’t believe tomorrow is almost Monday!

Anyways, my newest layout features my sweet girls – Ruby Mae and Lady Bear – from May 2015.

dscn6796

I used Doodlebug “Puppy Love” collection for the papers, stickers, enamel dogs, washi tape and paper clips.

dscn6798

I submitted this layout for Paper Issues Pet Challenge where I had to use something that is new to me (Doodlebug Puppy Love) and use something that I had been hoarding. I chose the veneers from Crate Paper “Hello Love” collection. I even colored the title using an orange gelato.

The design is based on Let’s Get Sketchy’s latest sketch:

Squirrel!

Hello everyone! I promise, last post for the day! LOL! This is another layout that I did over the weekend. It started a little different than the way it ended, but I really love how it turned out!

Squirrel!

Its based on Lets Get Sketchy Sketch Week 3.

Week 3

I actually started following the sketch…with the chicken wire template concentrated on the left of the photo. I made some rings in a darker ink and I didn’t let the ink from the stencil dry, so it got all ugly and smeared. 😦 I decided to move the photo up and layer the papers a bit more. I ended up hiding the chicken wire design, so I added it to the bottom of the papers/photos.

Next were the Heidi Swapp veneer arrows. They were all different sizes and when I saw the short one, with the circle, I first had the arrow pointing up. My friend Amanda suggested I have the arrow pointing at Penny, since Penny is watching Squirrely from the window. It was the PERFECT idea!

I also did this layout for ACOT’s Spelling Challenge and Manufacturer Challenge. This month’s Manufacturer must start with R so I chose Reminisce’s “Its a dog’s life”. And the word of the month was BIRTHDAY. Here is what is on my layout that spells out BIRTHDAY:

B = Blue background
I = Inking using stencils
R = Reminisce pattern papers
T = Tattered Angels misting
H = Heidi Swapp Veneers arrows
D = Doodlebug orange pattern paper
A = Adhesive
Y = Yellow word bubble

TFL! 🙂
