80th Birthday Party

Hello and happy Thursday!
We celebrated my Mom's 80th birthday last August with a barbeque in her backyard. I am finally getting around to scrapping a few photos from it.
I used the January 15th sketch at Stuck?! along with my stash- mostly JilliBean Soup with a few other things thrown in, including some October Afternoon. I used ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever.

As usual, I used white cardstock and created a background using watercolor. I just love the look of it!
I used 2 different alphas, fussy cut numbers and rub-ons for my title. I also added in some stickers:

I fussy cut the brown scalloped border from one of the papers and also used bits and pieces of papers for the rest of the layers. I added some stitching as well:

This rub-on has been in my stash forever and it felt good to finally use it!

Here is Laura's fun sketch:

Today i am sharing a layout I created for the challenges at Grand Diva's Creative Corner and Rochelle's January Inspiration Challenge 
I used a Hip Kit Club kit for this fun winter page. When I saw the "hot cocoa & fuzzy socks" card, I instantly thought of a few photos I had taken of Sierra and some friends about a year ago. They were drinking hot cocoa and all had fun socks on and they asked me to take a pic of them. I knew it would be perfect! The colors in the kit were also perfect!

I added 3 doilies for the circles in the sketch. 

I used the BRRR as my title. I used a branding strip (black and white stripes) as a border:

I added some pink tangled thread under a few of my diecuts. I also added enamel dots to the diecut snowflakes:

I fussy cut that cute mason jar from one of the papers and added diecuts from the ephemera package that came in the kit:

Here is the sketch:

and the photo to take inspiration from: (I was inspired by the colors)

Thanks for dropping by and enjoy your day!

Hello and happy Tuesday!
Today I am sharing a layout I created using a few challenges:
* a sketch challenge at Scrap Our Stash
*Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge- use the color grey, which I used on my pennant.
* and Stash busters round 2 at Paper Issues
I used some old Amy Tan and came up with this layout of my daughter and I:

I added watercolor to my background, of coarse. I hand cut the pennant from grey patterned paper. I also fussy cut the pink border and hand cut the teal tag. I added an October Afternoon sticker.

I added some stitching, a few fussy cut arrows and some gold enamel hearts:

I fussy cut the "XOXO" and the "Remember This Forever" from patterned papers. I also added a few word phrase stickers:

Here is the sketch:

G- gold hearts and grey
O- October Afternoon "My Girl" diecut
A- arrows and Amy Tan

It's A Dog's Life!

Hey there! Happy Sunday!
Today I am sharing a layout I created yesterday for the Pawsitively Pet challenge at Paper Issues and the Wednesday Stash challenge at Creative Inspiration.
I used a Silhouette cut file, October Afternoon papers, Studio Calico word stickers and Dear Lizzie enamel dots for this layout of Sierra and Bender:

I backed the cut file with scraps of papers and then outlined them with a black marker to make it pop:

I fussy cut the doggie from one of the papers and added some word phrases:

I fussy cut the feathers and leaves from the papers and added some enamel dots:

I added a few more stickers, some popped up with foam and added part of a paw frame cut file, colored with watercolor:

Christmas Magic

Hey there Scrappy Friends,
Today I am sharing a layout I created using Creative Embellishment chipboard and wood veneer along with a few ScraPerfect goodies. I also used some Echo Park paper scraps, a Simple Stories heart sticker and a very old rub-on from my stash:

Products used:

Check out that fun tree! You can see a tutorial on how I created it on the ScraPerfect blog tomorrow.

Here is the finished tree:

For my background I used watercolor and the packaging technique. Once it was dry, I used the Circles Stamp and stamped it with black ink randomly:

This star, I colored with a yellow Gelato:

I added foil to a few of the Wood Veneer stars:

a side view of the tree:

I cut the pine cones off of one of the Pine Cone Clusters and tucked it beneath my photo. I left this piece plain as I loved the natural look of it. These trees were previously cut on my Cameo and were laying on my desk, so I added watercolor and stitched them to my page. Not sure if they are from Silhouette or where?

I just love how this page turned out!
Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy, my friends!

Hello and happy Monday!
Today I am sharing a layout I created over the weekend. I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe along with the big title challenge at Paper Issues and came up with this fun page of Sierra and a few friends having fun last summer:

I added some watercolors to my background using the packaging technique along with some spatters. I cut the file on my Cameo and colored that with watercolor as well. Then I stitched in place. 
I added a patterned paper behind my photo along with some washi tape, a diecut flower and a fussy cut frame:

I trimmed the 3x4 journal card down and punched the border. I added some stickers, a flower diecut and the fussy cut "summer lovin'

Here is the other photo. I added a sticker to it. I also added a fussy cut watermelon and life float.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day!

Hey there!
Hope you had a great weekend! I can't believe it went so fast!
I had some free scrappy time today and created this layout using a sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap and the bingo challenge at Scrap Our Stash.
I used Amy Tan for this layout of Sierra:

I added a bit of grey paint to the background and then added layers of patterned papers behind my photos.

I added some stitching- straight and zigzag.

I used a few different Thickers and some Authentique mini alphas for my title. I strung the UWEC banner alphas on twine.

Here is the sketch:

and the Tic Tac Toe board:

I used the first column down: paint, 5+ patterned papers and twine.

Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy!
