Wow – I’m here with a layout I did just for me…not for a team. That feels awesome! I really liked the inspiration from Stuck?! Sketches and ScrapMuch?.
The ScrapMuch? color challenge asked you to use four of the six colors. I choose the two shades of aqua and grey for my papers, and the green is in the outfit our son is wearing. I guess in this case his puppy was the perfect pillow for afternoon nap.
The paper, and stickers, are from the My Mind’s Eye Sweetest Things: Bluebell collection. I really love MME goodies. I wish more was available locally. The doily is a Tim Holtz on the dye die. I had purchased a few doily’s in the past and never seemed to have the right color. With the die…problem solved.
So what do your think of the challenges and my interpretation? I’d love to have your comments. Until next time…Keep Scrapping!
Hi everyone and welcome to my final 2014 reveal for Southern Girls Challenge. Don’t worry…I’ll be back with more great inspiration for them in 2015. We were asked to inspire you with projects that had a Christmas theme. I am here today sharing my December Daily cover!
I started with the layout sketch over at Stuck?Sketches. Since they do layouts I’m not sure I can enter it into their challenge, but I’ll take inspiration where-ever I can get it and my mojo has been laking lately. I flipped the sketch on it’s side and went from there.
Except for the red ribbon, bling and possibly the snowman (can’t remember which pack he was in) all the products are part of the Simple stories DIY collection. I can’t get enough of this collection. I think it’s one of my favorite Christmas ones of all time. I inked all the paper edges with my prima inkers in green to make them pop off the craft cover.
So tell me…what is your favorite Christmas paper collection past or present?
Until next time…Keep Scrappin!
Have you ever had one of those crafting moments where it all just comes together? This layout was like that for me. I saw the sketch over at Stuck? and knew exactly what pictures and paper I wanted to use.
I used a combination of Doodlebug papers from an older fourth of July collection, called Stars and Stripes, the Boys Only collection and the newer Hip Hip Hooray. I think being able to mix and match is one of my favorite things about Doodlebug. Since the company’s color hues always remain consistent I can mix and match the non-specific patterns, or side b’s, to extend the life of my papers.
I used my prima chalk ink in Faded Jeans on the edges of my paper cuts to make them pop a little more again the white. The embellishments are some of my favorite – washi tape, sprinkles and few ink splatters from my Heidi Swapp color shine collection. Easy Peazy…
Tell me though…what is your favorite thing about Doodlebug papers? Until next time…Keep Scrappin!
