Studio Calcio You and Me Layout
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!
Altered wedding picture frame
Welcome to my first reveal for the Southern Girls Challenge blog! I was so excited to get started and then read my first assignment…flowers…ugh. They are probably the one thing you will never see in any of my books, except for our wedding album. Flowers are just not something I’m good at working with. Always up for a challenge though, I got down to business, and am darn pleased with what I came up with!
DH and I will be married nine years this year, and can you believe I have not one wedding picture anywhere in our house! I decided with this challenge to rectify that. I got out my circle punch and got business cutting scalloped circles, inking, misting them, and making shaping into flowers. Yes, you read that right, I made the flowers for this project. Leave me a comment if you’d like me to do a video because they are super easy, and you get great results!
Get Inky Stamps Halloween Challenge Inspiration
Hi everyone. I’m back with another inspiration post for Get Inky Stamps by Blue Moon Creations. Their challenge right now is Halloween with buttons.
I will admit that this was a very big challenge for me since we don’t “do” Halloween. I wasn’t even sure where to begin.
I used the Halloween Boo digi stamp cutting the Boo out for the front, and leaving the Happy Halloween for the inside. I used my Copics and glitter to make the boo exciting. I also used a chicken wire stencil, and glimmer mist, hoping to create a spider web like texture in the background.
I hope this inspires you to join the challenge, and I look forward to seeing your creation.
Kraftie Kre8ations Fall Blog Hop
Fall is such a beautiful time of the year, it’s when the leaves start changing colors and everything around us is beautiful. It is also the season of Thanksgiving, which reminds us to take a moment to reflect on all the things we are most thankful for.
We were asked to create a project using at least four of the five fall colors given. It also needed to be either fall related or have something to do with being thankful.
I created a gift bag out of four tags using the colors and fall stamps. The larger leaves and pumpkins are a Stampin’ Up set Paisley Prints. The smaller items I stamped with Denami’s Autumn Set that I then colored with a blender pen and my stamp pads. I scored it and attached with red line tape. To make the handle I just tied a length of ribbon in each of the opposing tag wholes. Really simple to do.
To give you an idea of how big it is I placed a bottle of glimmer mist in the bag. As you can see it just barely peaks out the top, and it does wiggle side to side. I think if you were going to a swap or white elephant scrapbook event it would be the perfect gift.
Now make sure you head on over to the Kraftie Kre8ations blog to link up your creation using the fall palette. KK8 is also giving away a prize during the hop. One lucky hopper will receive a gift. All you have to do is:
