I have really been challenging myself to use my Studio Calico kits, even though they haven’t been my normal style. This was the Camelot kit from I believe June. Except for the names I ended up really loving how this came out. I loved up right up until I added my handwriting…anyone else have that problem?
Since I was outside my comfort zone I went searching all over for inspiration and man did I find it. Sketch #75 over at Let’s Capture Our Memories was my main starting point. Laura Whitaker really hit it out of the park for me on this one. I loved how simple it was and the doily…was just calling my name. I took a plain white doily and misted it with Tattered Angels spray.
I was also inspired by the Challenge Yourself blog idea of having yourself in the photo with one of the men in your life. I am rarely in our pictures so I love the idea of this blog.
I also want to enter this into Crafty Girl’s Challenge – Anything goes. I appreciate finding new places to show off my creations.
So what have you been working on? Until next time – keep scrappin!
So when I saw the Etch-A-Sketch challenge over at the Child’s Play blog my first thought was that I was out for this round. The only thing I could ever draw was a house. My mom dropped off a picture of her house a few days later for our son’s album since he asks every day to visit Grandma, and I was ready to go! I ended up doing the layout for me though as the more I looked at it I kept thinking that no matter how old I get or where I go….my parents will always feel like home.
I think it took longer to get a half decent photo of my layout than it did to complete it! The papers, stickers, and titles are from the April 2014 Studio Calico scrapbook kit Bluegrass farms. The little orange bag that is holding my journalling is from the Fancy Pants Be Different collection. The flair is by Janna Werner, and the washi is from my stash. I combined more products than I realized!
I also loved the May 15th sketch at Sketch~N~Scrap, and used that for the my design. They have such great inspiration month after month!
I hope I didn’t come off as to much of a debbie downer, but for the price of these kits I’m rather disappointed…any suggestions?
