Looking For A New Cleaner?

Hey there friends!
I am here today to share an easy way to remove stickers off of an object.
We recently replaced our back door after installing it, I needed to remove those stickers they add to them. Yeah, I didn't get a picture of the actual stickers, but did get some after I tried peeling the stickers off. Here is the window on the door:

This is the door:

Finally, frustrated, I grabbed The Best Cleaner Ever:

and sprayed both areas:

I let it sit for about 5 minutes and used some paper towel to remove the sticker. This was the result after on the door:

and the window:

So next time you have something sticky to remove, try The Best Cleaner Ever.

Sharp Dressed Man

Hey there!
There is a new sketch up at Stuck?! Sketches today. I hope you will play along!
I used the July Hip Kit Club kit and came up with this fun page of Austin and I:

I added some white Gesso to some of my background and then added watercolor. I fussy cut all the flowers from one of the papers in the kit. Then I added embellies around my photos:

I added some tissue paper behind my photos to soften the look: 

Here is Laura's fabulous sketch:

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hello and happy Monday!
It's my day to post the sketch challenge at Creative Inspiration.
I used Fancy Pants True Friend for this page of Sierra and a few friends on graduation day:

Bev's sketch was perfect for these 3 photos! I am trying to use my stash and I used 3 frames from the True Friend collection. I added some stitching to the frames:

I also added some watercolor, diecuts and flair from the collection:

Here is the sketch:

We would love to have you join us on the forum and play along!
Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hey there Scrappy Friends!
Have you scrapped your wedding photos yet?
I have only scrapped a few so far.
I am here today to share a layout I created for my wedding album. Of course, I used the Best Glue Ever, because it really is the best glue ever!
I used the January Hip Kit Club kit for this page:

I added some watercolor to my background and then added a few layers behind my photo, including a frame. I also added lots of ephemera:

I love adding dimension to my pages by adding some foam behind my embellishments. The Best Glue Ever is perfect for adhering the foam to my layout:

I also, love using the Best Glue Ever to adhere wood veneer to my layouts. The No-Clog Writing Cap is perfect to get glue in all those small spaces. And, a little bit of the Best Glue Ever goes a long way!

Here is one more close up of my layout:

Of course, the Best Glue Ever works really well on paper too!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Back To Nature

Hey there Scrappy Friends!
I would like to share a page I created for a lift challenge at Paper Issues. I used Echo Park Happy Camper from my stash for this fun page:

I added layers of papers and stickers by my photos:

I added stickers and popped them up with foam tape to give some dimension:

I added a word of my title under each photo to keep the eye moving:

I love how this page came out!
Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

Summer Fun

Hello and happy Friday!
I would like to share a page with you that I created for a challenge at Paper Issues and Hip Kit Club. I used the June Hip Kit for this page of Sierra:

I added some diecuts from the kit:

I used a cutfile for the clouds and title from Hip Kit and cut it on my Cameo.

I backed the clouds with a few patterned papers and added a few fussy cut ones:

I colored my title using Gelatos and watercolors. I fussy cut the border from one of the papers and added some stitching:

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

A Christmas Card

Yup, I am still busting stash and creating a few Christmas cards here and there.
Today I am sharing one I made using a sketch at Sketch-N-Scrap. I used Basic Grey Juniper Berry for this one:

I added in a piece of Fancy Pants corrugated cardboard and am using this card for a stash challenge at Creative Inspiration as well. 
Here is a close up of all the dimension:

Here is the sketch: I turned it on it's side)

Have a wonderful day!

Let's Be Nuts Together!

Hey there!
It's my day to post on the Off The Rails Blog today. I decided to share a layout where I created a frame using washi tape and added some stitching. I used my favorite washi tape- the black and white stripped- it's from Michaels. I also used Fancy Pants True Friend for my layout:

I created my grid using a photo and project life cards. Once I had those glued down, I just tore some washi tape and created a square around the grid. After I had that done, I used my sewing machine to add zig zag stitching around my frame. I love the texture this creates and it also helps secure my washi tape.

I choose to do the entire square with the black and white striped washi tape and used small pieces of the teal and white striped to fill in where the black and white was thin. You could do this with multiple colors of washi tape or create a few squares of different colors around the grid. 

This is a great way to use up some washi tape stash!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Tis The Season

Hey there!
Today I am sharing a Christmas card that I created using the July 30th challenge at the Christmas Card Challenge Blog. I used Echo Park for this snowman card:

Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

Bug Me!

Bug Me is the theme for the new Cards In Envy challenge today. The challenge is to create a card with a bug or an insect on it. Check out their blog for a complete list of rules for playing along.
I used My Minds Eye Lost & Found for my card and stamped some dragonflies on white cardstock. I added a silver Nuvo marker and Stickles to add a bit of color to the dragonflies:

I cut the clouds on my Cameo quite some time ago and can't remember where the cut file came from. I added some ink and stamped a sentiment to the solid one. I stitched the other two.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you will join us this month!
