Wonderful & Oh So Lovely

Good morning! StuckSketches has a fun sketch to play with! I loved it! 

I started out with a white sheet of cardstock as my base. Then fussy cut an ampersand sign, adding ink to the edges.  It's always fun to be able to play with some mists and ink.
Here's a few other close up's.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Scrapping!

{Sketches in Thyme} Playground

Good morning! I'm so excited to be part of Sketches in Thyme Challenges team! I LOVE all the fun sketches, especially this one from Shawn Stiles Lahr. 
It was so much fun to work with, I love the details she adds to her sketches. Here is my take on it. 
I love working with bright summery colors! Echo Park Playground Collection was perfect with it's bright colors and went perfectly with my pictures. 
The element stickers are awesome! That merry go-round and the playground sticker worked out so amazingly well for my title. 

I used a journaling card that I did some fussy cutting to and mounted it to a piece of cardstock. I love how it really adds some fun texture.

Make sure to head over to Sketches in Thyme blog and check out the sketch and other sketches and join us for the fun challenges! We would love to see your take on the sketches! 

Happy Scraping! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Sketches in Thyme PL {My Sweet Cheeks}

Good morning! I had a glimpse of some BEAUTIFUL Spring weather and now we've had some snowy, rainy, cloudy days. I'm ready for more sunny days! :) Mean while I'm keeping busy scrapping some adorable pictures with bright, beautiful colors. 

Today's layout I used a sketch from Sketches in Thyme Project Life (PL) to create a PL card.
and a sketch from The Scrap Room for the layout.

As I was going through a stack of old pictures I came across this gem of my 2nd daughter when she was 2 years old. I love that silly little grin on her sweet face! 
My project life card had a cute border, sun & clouds already on it. I then added some chipboard balloons and popped the blue one up with some foam dimensionals. 
I love playing with my alpha's and creating fun typographies with my titles. 
Here's a few more close up's of the fun embellishments I added to my page.
 I really love "popping" elements up on my pages. It adds some fun little dimension.
 Here you can see the PL card tucked behind my picture and my journaling. I love how the balloons just pop up on the page and look like they are floating away. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a scrappy day! :)

Hello! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Photo Plays Jullie Nutting Belle Vie Collection! It's just such a soft and elegant line to me. It was perfect for these pictures that I took of my youngest daughter. I just adore the pretty little face. She has incredibly beautiful eyes (actually all 3 of my daughters do!) and just the cutest splattering of freckles across her nose. I love taking close up's of her. 

For this layout I used a sketch from My Creative Sketches
I was able to use everything from the collection for this layout with the exception of a little grey cardstock and some inking I did around the edges of things. Here's a few close up's.

Princess Layout

Hello! My layout today is of my cute little Princess. :) She loved wearing hats. I've been holding onto an old kit from Imaginisce called Enchanted. I'd been saving it for the perfect picture(s). I think I found one. :)

I loved adding and layering all the embellishments. They were perfect. I did punch a border using a Martha Stewart punch on some grey cardstock. Here's a few close up's of all the fun embellishments. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a scrappy day! :)

Stitched with LOVE

Does anyone still do quilting? I did with my mom when I was younger and I have tried to teach my daughters. This layout is of my 2nd daughter do some quilting on a quilt for herself. She was having so much fun to begin with but by the end she was ready to be done! lol

For this layout I used a sketch from My Creative Sketches along with a challenge from Scrapbook Circle. The challenge at Scrapbook Circle is to include a heart that is stitched in some way on your layout.
For this one I just had to pull out my Sew Easy supplies for this one. The heart piercer was perfect! I did it across a piece of vellum and then stitched it up. I layered that piece of vellum over some pink cardstock that I had used a border punch on.
 Then for the title I used a mix of Alpha's and did some faux stitching around the "Stitched" and then outlined the other two words.
 I LOVE adding puffy stickers! They add great dimension to your pages. 
 Next I added some washi tape behind my picture. When I placed a strip of washi tape down I noticed it was very light and got lost in that black striped paper. To remedy that I matched up and layered the washi tape about 3x's so it would really show up better. I like how it adds a pop of color next to the picture. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a scrappy day! :)

I have loved the little bit of sun we've been getting and I can't wait to get more! :) For now I've been scrapbooking away! This layout of my oldest daughter dancing with her Hip-Hop group was a fun sketch from Stuck Sketches.

Dance Your {HEART} Out

How often do you do two page layouts? I myself don't do them very often, but they sure are nice you have several pictures of one event. This layout is of another dance performance by my second daughter's combo dance group. They dance to a mix of Call Me Maybe and Pay Phone. They looked so good in their sparkly oufits and did a fantastic job on the dance. For this layout I used another sketch from Sketches in Thyme, they really have some fun ones to play with!
I used some fun little enamel stars here, they are just adorable!
 Then for the title I used some glittered Thickers and a puffy heart along with some smaller alphas.
  I did do a few things different from the original sketch on the left side they had 4 pictures, but since I didn't have four pictures I chose to use the area for a fun quote an my journaling. That's the best part about sketches, you can change them up to what works best for you!

Another fun layout to share with you today! This one is of my oldest daughter performing with her Hip-Hop dance group. They danced to a song called 'Turbulence'. They did such an amazing job! I used a fun sketch from Sketches in Thyme for this layout. 
 I used a sheet of black cardstock for my base and did some paper tearing for the next layer. Then for the 3rd layer I did some faux stitching around the border and added some fun enamel dots in the corner.
 I had fun with the title! Thought it was rather fitting given the name. :) I really enjoy doing fun titles. 
 Then on my journaling card I add some fun and very cute little sprinkles! I LOVE that glitter washi tape. Everything in life should have a little sparkle to it in my opinion. ;)
