Hey Everyone! Thanks for joining me as I share my latest creation. This is a layout using our nephew’s fourth birthday picture. He’s five already!
I started the layout with the sketch over at Scrap The Boys and the stripe challenge from Southern Girls. Both challenges gave me a great jumping off point.
The paper I chose is the Echo Park Birthday Wishes collection. The main reason I chose this collection was that it was out on my desk from two other creations so it was handy. I did however work in elements from other paper companies to achieve the look I was going for.
I have really been working on combining collections to get things used up. For example, the letters in the paper collection were just wrong somehow. Instead of used a combination of tiny letters from Jillibean Soup and Bella Blvd’s Max collection. The stars were also Bella products that I have two sheets of and I’m trying to get used up.
I hope you like my product mash up, and that it gives you ideas of how to combine collections for a seamless layout. Until next time…stay crafty!
Happy Veterans Day Friends! Today I’m sharing a layout I completed with the sketch from My Creative Sketches. They are the challenge blog for the My Creative Scrapbook kits I receive.
This layout was a bit different for me, not only because it included circles, but because of the very toned down color palette. I really wanted to have the photo be the focus…more than usual anyway…so I stuck with grey and a light aqua.
The paper are from a Studio Calico kit from almost two years ago. The grid paper was perfect for the large amount of journalling I wanted to do on this photo. The title is a combination of thickers and Jillibean Soup mini alphas. The little man flair is from A Flair For Buttons on Etsy.
Hope you enjoyed and leave me a link below if you used this sketch so I can check out what you created!
Hi everyone and welcome to a layout reveal that…wait for it…isn’t for a design team! This one I did strictly because I wanted too using the My Scraps & More Sketch #115. Having photos and elements with so much white space in between usually isn’t my thing, but I really wanted to use this and challenge myself.
The photo is of my Dad and our Son last year on his school’s Fathers Day hike. Hubby wasn’t able to get off of work so Pop stepped in. and they had a blast….our son is still talking about it. The paper and element stickers are all from the older Simple Stories Hey Pop collection. When this collection came out I scooped it right up because everything I find says Grandpa, but we don’t use that term…we call him Pop.
There isn’t much else on the page that isn’t part of that collection. The washi at the top is from a group buy so I have no idea what the brand is, and the tiny title stickers are from Jillibean Soup. Easy peasy…done in about an hour, which is a record for me.
So that’s my second layout done for the no buy October I am participating in, and I’ll have more to share soon. Feels so good to get some old stash used!
When I saw the July 1st sketch over at Sketch~N~Scrap I knew exactly what pictures I wanted to use, and it came together in right around an hour. An hour is probably a first for me as I tend to agonize over every little embellishment.
The paper is an old boys collection from Echo Park that I have been hoarding, but I’m really trying to get through my stash as there are so many new collections I want to buy. The flair is from an awesome Easy shop called A Flair For Buttons. Some Bella enamel dots, Studio Calico wood veneer and Jillibean Soup ephemera and I was ready to go.
What do you think of the sketch and my take? Will you use it? I want to see if you do! Until next time…Keep Scrapping!
