Beach Babe


Hey there Scrappy Friends!!
Today I am sharing a colorful summer layout I created using ScraPerfect, Fancy Pants and Robin's Nest products. 


I created my background using watercolors. 
Then I added the Palm Tree Rub-ons from Robin's Nest.


Here is a close up of one of the palm tree rub-ons and check out those super cute flip flops! Those are from Fancy Pants. Both are perfect for a summer page!


I colored the "Beach Babe" title using Gelatos.
I fussy cut the "Today" from a card in the Safron Cards from the Robin's Nest. I also added a few more embellies from Fancy Pants.


Here is another palm tree close up layered with a few more embellies. 


I fussy cut the "Hello Sunshine" from  a card in the Safron Cards. This yellow paper, I had previously cut a sun and used on another layout, but kept the negative piece. It worked perfect as a layer under my photo. 


I attached pretty much everything on this layout using ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap. I love this glue!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Card for ScraPerfect & Robin's Nest Cross Promo

Hey there scrappy friends!
I am here today to share a card I created for the cross promo of the Robin's Nest  and ScraPerfect:



I use to struggle with applying ribbon to a card. I have tried pretty much everything- glue, double sided tape, stitching. Almost all the time, it bunched, wasn't straight or something. I was pretty skeptic about trying the Best Glue Ever, but once I did, I won't go back to anything else!
It's easy to use:
Apply a small amount in a line where the center of your ribbon will go. I use my finger to spread it evenly. Once it dries to a clear finish, you can add the ribbon. What I love most about the glue is that it doesn't see through the ribbon!

Sketches In Thyme

Hello!
Today I am sharing a layout I have up over at Sketches In Thyme today.
I combined American Crafts, Paper House and a cut file from Just Nick for this layout of Sierra and a few friends at their senior prom:


I added a border using a punch. I added some circles, fussy cut label and an Evalicious wood veneer that I colored with silver mist:


The title is a combination of October Afternoon mini alphas and Thickers. I also added some Tim Holtz word sticker phrases here:


I added a few pieces of MAMBI chipboard stickers along with an Evalicious puffy banner sticker:


I fussy cut the camera from one of the AC papers. I added in a black Doodlebug doily. I also added another piece of MAMBI chipboard and a Simple Stories clear sticker:


I would like to give credit to one of the girls mom for the beautiful photo she shared with me.

Here is the fun sketch:

Lawn Fawn & ScraPerfect

Hello!
Lisa  here today and I am excited to share another card I created using Lawn Fawn and ScraPerfect products during our team up this month.



To create this card I used  the Perfect Crafting Pouch on my white cardstock. This helps get a nice crisp image when stamping. Then I used the Elphie Selfie Stamps and stamped them on the white cardstock using black ink. I colored the images using a small paintbrush and watercolors. Once they were dry, I used the Elphie Selfie Lawn Cuts and ran them through my Cuttlebug. I love the white edges around the stamped image! Plus, it was so easy to do!
I used the Best Glue Ever and some foam tape to adhere my stamped images to papers from the Perfectly Plaid papers.
Here is a close up of all the dimension of my card:


Here is what I used to create this fun card:

I love these Lawn Fawn stamps and Lawn Cuts and will be getting more of them in the future!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

There is a new challenge up on the Cards In Envy blog today!

I used Bella Blvd Illustrated Faith and came up with this card:


This was an easy card to make... I added 3 layers, some stitching and a few fussy cut flowers. 
Hope you will play along with us this month!

He's So Fine!

Hey there!

I am sharing a layout I created for Creative Embellishments and have up on their blog today.
As I was browsing the Creative Embellishment Store, I came across the He's So Fine chipboard title pieces. I knew right away that I had to have this piece for a layout of my son all dressed up for Homecoming last year. I paired it with: Grunge Gear Corner Grunge Circle Frames and Gears 1" I love the outcome!

   
I added Tim Holtz Distress Ink to both the Grunge Circle Frame and the Grunge Gear Corner. Then added a few black ink spatters.

 

Just a tip before applying ink to chipboard- I always try it on the back of the piece of chipboard to make sure I have the right color. I added a chipboard pennant, flowers and a punched butterfly to this cluster around the Grunge Gear Corner:

    

 For the He's So Fine Title Piece, I heat embossed using black embossing powder. Here you can see a close up of the Grunge Circle Frame:

 

 I added a few more embellishments to create a small cluster down in the lower right corner:

 

I added some flowers, some painted with watercolors, a piece of chipboard, punched butterflies and a few of the 1" Gears, which I also colored with the distress inks with ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever. I love how the gears keep the theme of the guy page, even though I have flowers on it. A year ago, I would have never added flowers to a guy page, LOL

   

 Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with me! Stay scrappy my friends!

Beautiful!

Hey there!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
I found a few hours of scrappy time earlier this week and created this layout using a Cut Shoppe cut file, Simple Stories and the March tic-tac-toe board at Scrap Our Stash.
I used: washi tape, gold and mini alphas:


I backed the cut file with papers from the 6x6 pad and stitched in place over my watercolor background.


I used Mambi black and gold chipboard.


I popped some of the flower diecuts up with foam tape to add some dimension. I also added the word "epic" using October Afternoon mini alphas.


I fussy cut the "today" circle, the black and white chevron frame and the "Life is amazing, beautiful, so very good" out of patterned papers.


Finally, I added a banner and doily on the top.

Here's the tic-tac-toe board:

Wish

IF you are here for the SpiegelMom/Creative Embellishment blog hop, scroll down or click HERE.

Hello!
I am to share a page I have up on the Creative Embellishment Blog today. I used a photo of Austin and I on parent's night at his football game last October. I used a variety of Creative Embellishment goodies on this page:

 

I used a stencil and light modeling paste to create texture on my background. I added some mists and watercolors on top and finally stamped using black ink and the Circles Stamp. The word "Wish" is from the Dream Word Set. I love the font! I just colored it using an ink pad.

   

Under my photo, I added a Circle Doodle Frame. I also added some Wood Veneer Stars. Both of these were colored with the same black ink:

 

I am not much of a flower user on boy pages, but I love the outcome on this layout!
In the cluster of embellies under the photo, I tucked in a Wood Veneer Football and a Heart. I also added flowers, thread and butterflies:

 

This piece is one of Creative Embellishments new chipboard pieces. It's called Washi Tape Clusters. Isn't it just so cool?! I love it! I added Gesso first and then used inks and Gelatos to color it. I also added the "Snap" flair from the Smile Set along with another Wood Veneer Star and some flowers:

   

 Around the edge of my page, I added a strip of patterned paper and some torn washi tape. 

 Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with me!
