Oh Hello There

Hey there!
I am back to share a layout I created using the March 15th sketch at Stuck?! Sketches.
I used a paper pad I received as a gift, I think it came from Michaels.

I fussy cut the flowers, leaves and title:

I added some punching and some more fussy cutting:

To create my background I used a stencil from Finnabair and took a Brilliance ink pad and smudged over it. Then I took another ink pad and smooshed it on plastic, added some water and smooshed it on my background. Finally I added some Heidi Swapp mist spatters in raspberry.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Follow Your Dreams

It's the second Monday of the month already! That means a new challenge is up at Cards In Envy. The challenge is: Make a card without ANY patterned paper.
I used my distress oxide inks and some cut files that have been laying on my desk for this card:

After applying the inks on my cardstock, I sprayed a background stamp with water and placed it on my background. I let it sit for a few minutes and then removed it. I love the results!

Check out what the rest of the DT did with this challenge and play along with us!

It's All Good

Hey there!
Hope you are having a fabulous weekend! It's in the lower 50's here!!! I just finished washing my car and cleaning the inside out. That hasn't been done since last fall. It looks so nice!
I played along with a few challenges this morning to create this layout of our vacation last summer to Door County:

I used Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine. I fussy cut the title from paper,  added some stitching and then finished it off with some alpha stickers from the collection. I added some sticker phrases and stamped the date:

I used graph paper to hand cut a tag. I did a little fussy cutting and popped a sticker up with foam. I added some washi tape and stitching:

I fussy cut the clouds and sun. I added some Gelatos to the background by putting it on a piece of plastic, added water and smooshed it on the cardstock:

I used a sketch from Rochelle Spears:

I used fact #3 from Grand Diva's This Month in History Challenge:

and used the March 15th case file #250 at CSI:
I used the colors and sun, clouds, paint and stamping.

Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy!

Hey there!
I had some time this morning, since we were off school and I played along with a color challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown.
I used Recollections along with some kraft cardstock and came up with this card:

Here's the challenge:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


Hey there scrappy friends!
Creative Inspiration hasa mini crop starting today. I created this page for my challenge over there.
I was snapping with Sierra on New Years Eve and screenshotted this pic of me before I sent it to her.
I used Amy Tan On A Whim for this fun page:

I used a Paper Issues cut file and cut it out on white cardstock. Then I added some watercolor. I outlined the numbers using a blue marker. The word "sweet" is from Heidi Swapp:

I fussy cut the flowers from a journaling spot and added a Heidi Swapp butterfly and a heart diecut:

Hope you will play along with us!

Carpe Diem

Hello and happy mid month!
Off The Rails has their mid month reveal of the March moodboard today. Thought I would share my page here as well.
I added a few strips of paper to the left side of my page. I added a bit of pink watercolor to the background and then added some black watercolor spatters:

I used Paper House ColorWays. I fussy cut the flowers from one of the papers. I added the "Carpe Diem" rub-on to black cardstock and then fussy cut into banners. I love that pink banner from the sticker sheet and had to add it to my layout. I popped it up with some foam:

This piece was also a rub-on that I added to black cardstock and fussy cut. I added some tangled thread and a few puffy stickers:

I added a few layers of patterned papers under my photo. To the right of the photo and the bottom right corner, I added some black & white Recollections torn washi tape:

Can you guess what the challenge is?
Yup, use black, white and one other color. Here's the mood board:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Hello Family!

It's my day up on the ScraPerfect Blog. Today I am sharing a layout using The Best Glue Ever and the No Clog Writing Cap. This is my favorite go to glue and the fine tip makes it so easy to apply glue to small spaces!
I used Fancy Pants Family & Co for most of this layout of Greg, Sierra and myself:

The "Hello" chipboard piece is from Bella Blvd. I was planning on coloring it, but decided not to once I had all the other elements in place. I added a small half circle journaling block and a few puffy stickers:

I added a few of the tags from the collection and tied bows using the string that came with them. I added a label to put my date on, but forgot to add it, LOL!

Here I added another tag, diecuts and puffy stickers. I used a few mists to create my background. The yellow is from Recollections and the red is Fireworks.

I used the March 5th sketch from Creative Inspiration. We had our reveal a week or so ago.

I don't make many 2 page layouts any more so I combined the sketch into a single page.
I would love if you would check out the little tutorial I have up on this layout on the ScraPerfect blog!
Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy!

Back To Nature

Hey there!
About this time every year, I get cabin fever and can't wait to go camping. So I decided to create a camping layout to chase those winter blues away.
I used a sketch from Scrap The Boys along with the March 1st case file at CSI and came up with this fun camping layout of Greg:

I used Simple Stories Take A Hike. The star cut file is from the Silhouette store. I cut it on white textured cardstock and backed it with the wood grain circle paper. I added machine stitching around the edge of the star. I added some stickers, popping some up with foam:

I hand cut a tag from one of the papers and added a fiber bow. I also added more stickers:

I fussy cut my title "Back To Nature" from one of the papers. I also added a machine stitched circle using green thread:

Here is the sketch and case file:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Hope you find some time to play along with us this month!

Winter Work

Hey there!
It's my turn again up on the ScraPerfect Blog.
I am sharing a not so fun winter layout- it involves shoveling! LOL!
I used Fancy Pants Timbergrove and Winterland along with a cut file from Paper Issues, LYB snowflakes and Studio Calico wood veneer:

I wanted to add some patterned paper behind the open circle of the cut file.

I used The Best Glue Ever along with the No-Clog Writing Cap to add a thin line of glue to the cut file:

Then flipped it over on the patterned paper. Perfect results every time! 

Here are a few close ups of my layout:

I used The Best Glue Ever to adhere the snowflakes and my title:

Love how quick and fast it holds!

Thanks for sharing your day with me!
