I’m back today with more pictures from our Munich honeymoon using a sketch from ScrapMuch!? These photos are from a Beer Garden we stumbled upon not far from our hotel that was so good we ended up there most nights. I couldn’t get over the size of the beers they served. My favorite drink ended up being Radler…a mix of light beer and lemonade. It sounds gross, but was so refreshing at it was beyond hot the week we were there.
The beer paper has been in my stash since we got back from the trip…ten years ago. The brown accents are from Close To My Heart and I received them during my stay on the Paper Crafter Anonymous design team. The title was cut from my Silhouette with a free font I had on my computer. And before you ask…yes that is a coaster from the restaurant.
Short and sweet today. Until next time…Keep Scrapping!
Dropping in with a really quick post showing what I completed with the inspiration photos from ScrapStuffz Inspired By. This month we had two awesome inspiration photos to work with.
The office supplies reminded me of back to school. This inspired me to scrap our son’s pre-school picture. I used Authentique’s Accomplished collection as I felt the black, white and craft would balance the loud, busy background of the photo.
The ferris wheel photo inspired me to scrap pictures from when we went to the Clearfield County Fair with my Brother, SIL and Nephew. I used a star cut file from the Silhouette store and an Echo Park boy collection, but the name escapes me at the moment. I stitched on my layout for the first time and while I like the effect I had trouble keeping the sew easy tool straight.
When I saw the new sketch over at Sketch~N~Scrap, and the Old Is New challenge at A Cherry On Top I knew right away what products I was going to use, and even what pictures. I think this was one of the fastest layouts I’ve ever done.
I used the Simple Stories Sn@p Him collection, and my first cut from my new Silhouette. I don’t do pocket scrapbooking, but have several card collections to use for layouts like this. The chevron down the side is modeling paste mixed with some acrylic paint and put through a Tim Holtz stencil. I need some practice on this technique, but I really love how it comes out, and the depth it gives my layout!
I’ll be back soon with more new layouts. Until then – keep scrapping!
