Love You Card

Hello!
Hope you are enjoying your weekend and have some fun plans!
I am spending my last weekend with Sierra before we take her to college on Thursday :(
Today I am sharing a card I made for the sketch challenge at Sketch-N-Scrap and the Single Step Challenge at Words 2 Craft By.
I used Pink Paislee Cedar Lane for this card to send to Sierra while she is at the UW.


This is one line from my stash I have been trying to use up. Now I only have a few small pieces of papers left and a few odd embellishments. I maybe can get 1 more card of it, LOL!
Here is the sketch:


Stay scrappy my friends!

Lucky Me, NOT!

Hey there!
I am back today to share a fun layout I created using the Scrap Our Stash sketch + (3) challenge. This challenge always makes me think outside my box and I always love what I create!
Here is my layout:


I stuck pretty close to the sketch, but I added a few more layers. I added some stitching to this cluster of papers and embellies:


I used a sticker from Simple Stories and some My Mind's Eye alphas. I added some torn washi tape under the "NOT" to accentuate it:


Here I fussy cut the cluster of flowers, added some more stitching and some green washi tape:


The cluster at the top is another group of fussy cut flowers, patterned papers and a tag:


I finished the layout of with paint and mist spatters.

Here is the sketch:


I used:
3 manufacturers: Fancy Pants, Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye and Simple Stories.
Washi tape
Xyron

Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

You & Me

Hey there!
I am back again today to share a layout I created using a sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap and a few cut files from The Cut Shoppe.
I used some old My Minds Eye along with the Scribble Scrabbles and This & That cut files for this layout of Sierra and one of her friends on graduation day:


I did some stitching on the cut file:


The "Hello" circle is from the This & That cut file. I colored it using watercolors. I fussy cut the "beautiful" banner and the yellow chevron arrows. I popped them up with foam tape. The butterfly is from Little Yellow Bicycle:


I used the This & That cut file to create my title and colored it with an orange Gelato:


Here is the sketch I used:


Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful day!

Beauty- A Paper House Layout

Hey there Scrappy Friends!
I am sharing a layout I have up on the Paper House Blog today.
I created this page using some of the Paper House fantastic products!
I used a photo that I took from a 4th of July celebration we had gone to along the river and there were lots of boats in the water. That added to the perfect sunset photo!
  Beauty

Beauty Layout Supplies:
I used my Cameo to cut a sun burst and stitched with my sewing machine and yellow thread. I matted my photo with tissue paper and one of the Gatsby Trim Cards. I used the pennant piece and sun shaped diecut from the Gatsby Accent Pack and also cut a few pennants from the Gatsby Trimmings 12" ColorWays paper. I added some tangled thread and some Sculpted and Puffy Stickers.

July Project 12

Hey there! Happy Saturday!
I posted my Project 12 sketch and 2 pager for July today at Turtle Soup and wanted to share it here as well.
I used Echo Park Simple Life and a cut file from Paper Issues I believe, which I altered:



The cut file originally had stars all over the page. I deleted a lot of them moved around the rest to create the flourish on the bottom and then just backed it with patterned paper.

Here is the left side:


Right side:


and some close ups:


I fussy cut the flowers and added some stickers popped up with foam tape:


Check out that ribbon, it's so cool and has been in my stash forever!


Here is my sketch:


If you play along with it, please share with me here or at the Turtle Soup.

Enjoy your day!

XOXO

Hey there scrappy friends!
It's my day to post the scrap lift challenge over at the Turtle Soup today.

I lifted a super cute page by Laurie, used Maggie Holmes Bloom and came up with this selfie page of Austin and I taken on July 4th weekend. It's not very often that he lets me take pics of him, so I was happy that he did that day. Love this photo of us!


I heart the pops of gold in this collection and had to use some!


I backed the cut out heart with some green paper and fussy cut a butterfly. I also added a few word stickers and that cute hexagon. Some I popped up with foam tape to add some dimension.


Swoon! More yummy glittery gold! Love it!


Thanks for stopping by and keep scrappy!
