Thanks for joining me today while I share my newest layout created off the sketch from GrandDiva’s Creative Corner. It was originally a two page sketch, but I only used the left hand side. I also used the the mood board from Creating with Paper & More. The mood board had a wood sign in it inspiring the wood grain paper I used for my background. It also had a child blowing snow that looked like stars…hence the star accents I used around my page. Lastly, the board had a deer in the left corner. My husband is an avid hunter so it inspired me to scrap about his recent achievement at work.
I’m happy to be back with another layout today for Scrapbook Challenges. I am even more thankful than normal to be part of their design team right now. I think if I wasn’t I wouldn’t be getting any layouts done…I’d just be holding Julia all day long…
This layout was done with the January 2016 kit from My Creative Scrapbook. It features washi tape and die cuts from Pebbles, paper and stickers from Echo Park, letters from Doodlebug and a die cut from Tim Holtz.
To make the die cut on the top/bottom of the photos extra special I pressed them into my VersaMark stamp pad and then embossed them with Ranger chunky embossing powder. It gives the snowflakes a glossy appearance. It’s almost like they are glistening.
Thanks for joining me today, and if you ever have any questions about my process or a layout I’d love to answer them!
Still feeling the affect of the snow here and work is opening several hours late. I’m not complain about extra time at home! Today I’m sharing a layout I created using the sketch from My Creative Sketches.
This was the final layout I completed in my kill the kit challenge with Echo Park’s All About A Boy. After this layout I didn’t have anything big enough left to even mat a 4×6 photo. Sad to see my favorite kit go, but happy to be using my stash!
Hi all! We’re experiencing winter weather here today so I’m “stuck” inside and getting to work on thing around the house and in my scrappy area..oh darn…lol
I’m sharing with you today a layout I created using the January 15th sketch over at Stuck?. I challenged myself on this one because I don’t usually choose to work with sketches that are like photos strips, but I really enjoyed how this came out.
The paper I used was from an old Echo Park collection called All About A Boy. It was my favorite collection ever I think, and the layouts I completed his month killed the kit. Happy to have stash used up, but sad at the same time that my favorite collection is gone. Anyone else go through that with their favorite collections?
Last, but certainly not least, I went with Rochelle Spear’s challenge of using twine or ribbon on your layout. I had a ton of both these items in my stash, but never really use them so this was perfect for me.
I also wanted to include the comments that were posted when his job put the achievement on their wall. I didn’t want to include four full size photos on the page, and I didn’t want to shrink the photo of him down so I used some flip flaps from Close To My Heart to fit them all in.
Thanks for bearing with me for my super long post. Hope you love the layout.
Being home this week I managed to get a layout done last night! I used the sketch from GrandDiva’s Creative Corner. Even though I made a few adjustments if you go to her site I think you can see the sketch was used fairly closely.
The paper is from Echo Park’s That’s My Boy collection. I’ve saving that paper with the football field on it for something special. Since these are pictures of the Super Bowl I thought it was the perfect time to pull it out. The modeling paste was left white and put through a Tim Holtz stencil. I believe this one was just called something like splatters.
Well – off to get more cookies in the oven…until next time!
