Hey Scrappy Friends! I am so honored to be a guest designer for the Scrap The Boys challenge blog. This month their challenge is to use a 5×7 photo. I haven’t used anything that large in awhile and let me tell you…when I got the photo back from the printer it seemed HUGE!
The photo is our son all ready for his first field trip that an adult family member wasn’t going on with him. It also wasn’t a small place they were going to a very large amusement park that had wet and dry rides….perhaps you’ve heard of it…Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom. I’ll tell you…mom was more nervous than he was. He had a blast…summer camp has been amazing for him and his energy level.
On to the page….Since he was wearing black short and bright t-shirt I choose black textured American Crafts cardstock for my base. I figured the colors would pop off the page better. The patterned papers I used are from an older Bella Blvd collection called Max. The title and stars came from the 12×12 stickers sheet. The tiny word stickers came from the trinket stickers, but what I’m most excited about is the shark embellishment. That came from the candid cards which are 2×2 – 4×6 cards that look like they are meant for project life. I fussy cut the shark to match the shark on his shirt.
I outlined the title in a white Gelly Roll pen, and the doodle border on the star paper is just a thin Sharpe. Some Dilyussions white linen splatters and some homemade enamel dots and I was done. This layout only took me about half and hour, and of course I didn’t record it.
Well, that’s my page for today! I hope you head on over to the Scrap The Boys blog and play long with this months challenge. Be sure to let them know Lyne sent you. Until next time….
Hey Scrappy Friends! I wanted to share with you how the Embellie Gellie saved our Father’s Day. I make my own enamel dots and received on order for over 1,000 the Saturday of Father’s Day. I needed have them shipped Monday, and I didn’t have all the colors on hand.
I went ahead and made a ton of colors, but they still needed to be packed.
Normally I do this all by hand and it takes me forever. With my Embellie Gellie though I was able to go in and pick up just the colors I was looking to pack.
I was able to pack my whole order while still spending time at the park with my family and having a cook out with my Father.
What could have taken hours and hours with Embellie Gellie took no time at all. Thanks for saving my Father’s Day!
Hey Scrappy Friends! I’m back with another process video today. This time I was inspired by the sketch and word from May 15th at Scrap Our Stash. Wish I had gotten this one recorded, and edited, in time to enter the challenge.
With the sketch you had to use the word mother, and use one item for each letter. Mine are M – My Mind Eye Paper, O – Ornamental Shape Stickers, T – The Best Glue Ever for my enamel dots and woods pieces, H – Hearts and Home, E – Echo Park Paper, R – Red to match the new puppy.
To hear all about my thought process when creating this please head over to my youtube channel to check out the process video. Thanks for checking my creations out!
Morning Everyone! In one of Facebook groups our challenge for December was to use a sunburst design, or paper, on your layout. It’s not something I’d normally use so it was quite a challenge for me. I actually had to ask a friend how she completed her sunburst. She used scrap paper to make a template, but with having our son and working I needed something quicker. I found this you tube tutorial and it was done in no time!
For my sunburst effect I used the Carta Bella Boy Oh Boy line. I didn’t want to use all patterned paper because it looked so busy. What I did was take a matching color and emboss and arrow pattern, from Heidi Swapp, in clear powder. I gave the paper a little something, but not too much.
The background paper is from an old Studio Calico kit. The title actually came from our son. As I was working on the page he came over to see how it was going, saw the pictures and said…”Look, my soccer friends.”
Hope you enjoyed the layout, and have a great weekend.
