Bright Lights for CSI

Hey there friends!
I am back to share another layout for CSI.
I used the November 2017 Hip Kit Club kit for this layout:

I layered a few strips of paper across the top of my page. I fussy cut the lights from a PinkFresh paper in the kit and then added some stitching:

I fussy cut a few trees, a label and added a few puffy stickers from PinkFresh:

I used the exclusive gold alphas from the kit. Love them!

Life Is Made with ScraPerfect

Hey there!
I am back to share a Christmas layout I have up over at ScraPerfect. I used the Best Glue Ever and the No Clog Writing Cap. These two together are perfect for creating a layout!
Here's my layout using PinkFresh December Days:

The fine tip of the No Clog Writing Cap is perfect for adding glue to these small die cut letters:

I keep my No Clog Writing Cap on my bottle of the Best Glue Ever at all times. This glue works on a variety of surfaces, including craft foam. which I use to add dimension to my layout:

Here are a few close ups:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

First Day of School

Hey all!
I played along with the layout sketch over at Creative Inspiration for the DT reveal. You can check out Bev's sketch on the board.
I used PhotoPlay Real Genius for this page of Austin's 1st day of college. Austin will not let me take pictures of him, so I took these pics from the house as he was walking out to his car to leave, LOL!

I used a triangle stencil and sprayed it with mists and then stamped it on my background paper. Once that was dry, I used a Creative Embellishment stamp and stamped the dots. Finally, I added some spatters using a mist.

I fussy cut the gears from one of the papers and popped a few up with foam dots to add some dimension.

I added some machine stitching to add some texture.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

A Christmas Layout for CSI

The first day of December already?!  Where did the year go?
I have a layout to share for the new CSI case that is up today.
I dug in my stash and used Carta Bella Merry & Bright for this Christmas layout:

I fussy cut the pennant, birds and tree from a few papers and added them to my layout. I used some old green Thickers for my title: 

I handcut all the squares and added the circle number stickers to the top of them. I popped every other one up on foam to add some dimension:

Here is the case file:

Check out the CSI blog to see what the rest of the design team did and play along with us!

Fueled By Coffee

Hey there friends!
I am back to share a layout I have up on the ScraPerfect Blog today.
I used the Best Glue Ever, No Clog Writing Cap , the Perfect Crafting Pouch and Shimelle True Stories for this layout:

I designed my layout so I could figure out where I wanted to stamp on my page. Before I stamped, I used the Perfect Crafting Pouch and ran it across the places I wanted to stamp. This makes for a nice, crisp image.

I stamped directly on my textured cardstock:

I used the Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap on it to apply glue:

Here are a few close ups:

I stamped the black hearts too:

I also stamped the teal coffee cups:

A close up of my title:

These are the products I used:

Hey there!
It's my day up on the Sketches In Thyme blog today to share a layout I created using the sketch.
I used the October 2017 Hip Kit Club Kit for this layout of my sister, my daughter and me while we were visiting my daughter at college her freshman year:

For my background, I layered a few patterned papers and then added some white cardstock on top so I could add some watercolors to it.

I used lots of diecuts on this page, mostly Pink Fresh. I also added some enamel stars and some chipboard. I added my journaling among the embellies:

I added some torn washi tape, more diecuts and check out those periwinkle alphas, LOVE THEM! 

Here is this weeks sketch:

This was such a fun sketch to work with!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
