Hey crafty friends! I’m back today with a video inspired by She’s Crafty’s mini paper pad class on youtube. I’m going to be taking on her challenge of doing ten layouts, inspired by sketches, using five collections. Let’s get this stash used up friends!
Hey crafty friends! I’m back with a new layout using the February sketch over at Sketch~N~Scrap. Their sketches have been right up my alley the last two months, and I’m happy to be getting some pages accomplished. This month I chose to use the sketch and create my Am I There Yet Boy scrapbook layout. Let’s take a look first at the sketch
I loved how clean this one was. I know that sketches are just a starting point, but sometimes I feel overwhelmed when there is to much going on in a sketch. I also knew right away which photos I wanted to use. Our son turned ten this year and I took some photos of him compared to his father. While I should have thought to do this every year since he was born….I thought it would be interesting to start now and see if/when he surpasses good old Dad.
I used a rather old collection from Simple Stories. They released this mini kit called Hey Pop in 2014. I have used it before, but since my goal this year is to use more than I buy it was a perfect place to start. When I was done I had no full 12×12 sheets of paper left, and only two colors of paper so I called this kit killed.
I also managed to create a video showing my process while making this. I have some creation questions so I’d love if you popped over and let me know your thoughts on those. I”m starting a new paper pad/collection challenge so I hope to be getting lots finished shortly. I love getting my photos documented, and my paper collections used. Until next time…stay crafty!
Hey crafty friends! Can you believe I’m back again already!!?? This time I’m back with a double page layout. The left hand page of this travel double page scrapbook layout is inspired by the layout sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap. The right hand page was adapted from a sketch from one of Alison Davis’s sketch books.
I stuck very closely to the sketch for the strips on the left hand side and where the title is. I did not however use the strips under the photos. I used larger photos so once I matted them the strips just didn’t fit without making the layout look over crowded. I do still need to add my journalling in the space above my title. Oh, my hubby did let me know that I need to an a b to my title:-)
For this layout I used an older Simple Stories collection called So Rad. If I have my years correct this collection came out in 2015. One of my goals for this year is to use more collections than I buy so you’ll likely be seeing many older collections from me this year.
I am also trying not to be so fussy about every scrap of paper. Will I still gut my 12×12 sure, but I’m going to try to no over analyze every photo I back and the like. I will not overthink cutting a piece of paper for a strip. I mean we all have enough to last a lifetime don’t we!?
I also managed to make a process video to go along with these pages…I’m feeling like a rock star…lol If you’d like to watch me create please go on over and check that out. I’d love to have you subscribe.
Okay – I’m signing off to hopefully go create more. I love being able to share with you more regularly. If you like to see me use a specific collection let me know, and if I have it, I’d be happy to try. Until next time….stay crafty!
Hey crafty friends! I hope the start of 2021 is treating you well so far. I’m back sharing a new layout today for the Scrap the Girls Dead Men Tell No Tails Challenge. Despite the ominous name of the challenge I chose to great a hello adventure birthday girl scrapbook layout. The challenge was using the below image, and one could take inspiration as it struck them.
The image for me gave me inspiration in three different ways. The first was the color scheme. I turned to my scraps of the very old Simple Stories collection called Vintage Bliss. The collection had pink, aqua, yellow and green just like the above image.
The second way the image gave my inspiration was the flowing hair of the mermaid. In the one picture our photographer captured out daughters hair is flowing straight out behind her as she played. The third way I received inspiration from the image was the wood of the boat. I used this to use two wood veneer pieces for my title.
This 12×12 layout was also created using just scraps of a 6×6 paper pad. I used a sketch from one Alison Davis’s sketchbooks that use only a 6×6 paper pad. This particular sketch was even better as I was able to use just my scrap pieces and didn’t need full 6×6 sheets. I didn’t have any embellishments left from this collection so I cut some butterflies from one of the papers, and used some bits and bobs from old Felicity Jane kits as well as some generic things like enamel dots and phrase stickers.
I hope you’ve enjoyed hearing and seeing my take on the challenge, and that is inspired you to play along as well. If you do play along, please leave me a comment with you link so I can check your creation out as well. Until next time….stay crafty!
