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! :)

Good morning! It has been looking like Spring around here lately! I can't wait to see Summer! 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.
 I loved adding all the fun sprinkles on this layout.

What is your favorite season? Have you been scrapbooking or crafting lately?

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. ;)

I love playing with sketches! I used a fun one for this layout from Sketches in Thyme. I really loved the fun circles in the background. :) These pictures are of my 2nd daughter performing a dance from her combo dance class. It was so fun to watch them use those jump ropes! 
 I had fun mixing the lower and upper case Alpha's for the title. 
 I love layering embellishments together.

Sweet Music

Hello! My layout today was inspired using a sketch and their Circle Roundup from Scrapbook Circle.  I also used a color challenge from Scrap Much?. This layout of my 2nd daughter performing her first Viola solo. She did such a great job.  

 Here's some close up's. For the title I used some black foam Thickers that I then traced out with a white Signo pen along with some foil alphas. I love the foil Alpha's! They look awesome when they catch the light just right. 
 I had some washi tape that was perfect for this layout. Along with some fun puffy stickers.
 I also popped up my middle picture with some foam adhesive to give a little dimension.

Sketches in Thyme {Snowbody Like You}

Good morning! I hope everyone had a good Valentine's Day. Today's Sketches in Thyme Project Life card sketch was a fun one to work on! Here's my take on the Project Life card sketch...
I love the colors! I've been really enjoying matching up the pink and that aqua color together lately. I did some faux stitching around it and then embellished it with enamal dots, some Thickers and misc. bits of embellies I had around.

Next step is to add that Project Life card on my traditional 12x12 layout. For this layout I used a sketch I found on ScrapSquads Facebook page.

I love how it all turned out!
It really was a fun layout to work on.The colors just pop and are so fun a "snowy" layout. :) That sketch was a great way for me to use up some of my scraps too. 

Make sure to swing by Sketches in Thyme PL to check out the challenge and other DT's take on the sketch! Good luck and have fun! :) Remember the challenge only goes until February 29th!

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

Scrap With Us {Full of Personality}

New month, new challenge! Scrap With Us has a fun sketch challenge to share with you. Here is my take on the sketch.

It was such a fun sketch! I loved all the fun and different embellishments it allows for you to use. Here's some close up's.  I did some layering faux stitching with a white Signo pen around the word "Trouble" and used some metallic gel pens to create the circles in the background. I also used some inks to splatter around. 
For some contrast on the title I used different size and style alpha's.
I love that adorable cork camera! Also, the button was the perfect yellow! It matched my papers so well. I did a tiny bit of journaling around my circle picture.

Now make sure to go check out the sketch over at Scrap With Us and join in the challenge. I would love to see your take on it! :)

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