 Hey there scrappy friends!

Today I am sharing a layout created for CSI using case file #353 I used stash on this page:


I tore a strip of corrugated paper from Fancy Pants and added a couple of project life cards and some scraps of patterned papers:


I added a wood veneer with a butterfly cutout along with the word "fresh" from Heidi Swapp. I added some puffy stickers from Fancy Pants. I punched some butterflies from vellum using a few different Martha Stewart punches:


T the left of the photo, I added a wood veneer polaroid frame a cute wood veneer Bunny from Creative Embellishments colored with Oxide Ink. I also added in a burlap arrow from Fancy Pants and the "spring" wood veneer:


This layout was so fun to create and I love that I used stash!

Lovely

 Hey there!

Today I am sharing a layout created for 88 and Clear. This layout is of Greg, Sierra and myself. We were celebrating Sierra's 22nd birthday:


I wanted to do an ombre effect on this layout. I used the Heart Panels Stamp and stamped 2 in each of these colors: (going from the top of the layout to bottom) Sweet Pink, Sour Guava, Sour Watermelon, Tangy Berry and Rich Cherry Sugar Cubes. Then I fussy cut them and added them in a strip down the left side of my layout:


I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio Wild At Heart collection. I added a chipboard frame, some fussy cut butterflies and flowers and the cut apart phrase:


I used the same Sugar Cubes to make watercolors for my background. I added a chipboard title and some machine stitching to my butterflies:


This was such a fun layout to create! I love using the Sugar Cubes to make watercolor!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Moments

Hey there!
I am back to share another layout with you that I created for Creative Embellishments. 
I used a photo of my son when he was younger. We were camping and he was watching a squirrel up in the tree. I took lots of photos, these are just a few:

   

 I used KaiserCraft Sea Breeze collection. I added some machine stitching. I added some Gesso and acrylic paint to the Chipmunks:

   

 I fussy cut the circle "find joy..." and "enjoy" from one of the papers. I added another Chipmunk here. I added a layer of Gesso, grey acrylic paint and then dry brushed it with brown acrylic paint:

   

 I added brown acrylic paint to the word "moment" from the Moments Word Set and used that as my title. I fussy cut the flowers in the upper left and lower right from another paper and the popped them up to add some dimension:

   

 I hope I have inspired you in some way. 
 Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Taco Johns

I added some doilies and a few more stickers:

Sympathy Card

 Hey everyone!

Today I am sharing a sympathy card I created using 88 and Clear products. 

I used Sweet Cane Sugar Stock as the base of my card. I added a layer of Sweet Lavender Sugar Stock and then a layer of Sweet Banana Sugar Stock. I used the Square Netting stamp and stamped with Sweet Banana Sugar Cube:

I printed the Feel Better Digital Stamp on white cardstock and colored it using watercolor pencils. Then I used a watercolor brush to blend. I fussy cut the flowers and popped them up using foam. I added a bow, KaiserCraft pearls and some Dazzling Pat spatters. For my sentiment, I used the heartfelt sympathy from the Feel Better Digital Stamp and backed it with Sweet Lavender Sugar Stock.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

He Calls Me Mama Llama

 Hey there scrappy friends!

Today I have a fun layout to share with you that I created for case file #351 at CSI using lots of stash. When my kids were younger they always called me mama llama. Here's my layout:


I added strips of patterned papers (orange stripe-Websters Pages, grey and teal are Cocoa vanilla)  to my background tearing the bottom 2 and backed my photo with paper from Authentique. I cut the "cool Kid" from a Cocoa Vanilla paper as well. I fussy cut the clouds from a Bella Blvd paper:


I cut the yellow pennant from a Teresa Collins paper and the orange is from Cocoa Vanilla. I added in a wood veneer from Cocoa Vanilla, chipboard pieces from Bella Blvd and some pom-pom trim from my stash:


I added gesso and pounced acrylic paint on these fun chipboard Llamas from Creative Embellishments. I also added in the Barbed Wire Border from Creative Embellishments that I sprayed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine:


For my title, I used alphas from Evalicious along with some Thickers. I added in some Tim Holtz word phrase stickers and a rub-on from my stash.


I had a blast creating this fun layout and I love how it came out!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!




You & Me

Hey friends!
Happy April Fools Day!
This months challenge at Creative Embellishments is to create something monochromatic and the twist is to use washi tape. I have to admit, I struggle with monochromatic challenges, I always have and I probably always will. 
I chose my washi tape first for this challenge, the pink is from Bella Blvd. and the black is from Recollection, I think. I added torn strips of the pink washi tape to my background along with some Lindy's, Heidi Swapp and Recollection mists:


I added some chipboard flowers from Illustrated faith and also some black foam hearts:


 I added the "love" word from the Happy Word SetI added some wood veneer Heart Clusters. I used the same mists on both :


I sprayed a piece of the Lace Border 7 with the same mists and added it under and to the left of my photo:


 I added the black & white washi tape, which I tore, to the top of my page and then added the pink patterned paper from Illustrated Faith.  I tucked in a Chinese Lantern sprayed with mists:


.  I may have struggled with this page, but I love how it came out!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Count Your Blessings

  Hey there friends!

Today I am sharing another card that I created for 88 and Clear using the March 5 for $5 digital stamps- So This.


I used Java Chip Sugar Stock as my base and then added a layer of Sour Pineapple, which I used a Martha Stewart punch on the edge. Then I added a layer of Sour Guava. I used the Ring Layers die on the 2 top layers to create my circle. The sentiment and leaves from the Sweater Weather digital stamp and the hands with cup is from the So This digital stamp. I also added some Black Taffy Twine made into a bow and some Dazzling Pat spatters.
