Hey there scrappy friends!
Welcome to the Robin's Nest Blog Hop! You can see the list of design team blogs participating HERE.
I am sharing a simple layout I created using one of my favorite summer recipes- Stars and Stripes Dessert.
I used Wedgewood Glitter Cardstock for my background.
I took Admiral Daisy Glitter Linen Cardstock (10 1/4"x10 1/2") and punched one edge and stitched all around. I then cut Red Glitter Paisley Cardstock ( 4"x7 3/4") and added my photo to it. See close up below.
Happy Saturday! It's my day to post the challenge at My Scraps & More.
For today's scrap lift, I lifted a layout by Michelle. I am a huge fan of her work!
Here is what I came up with using Fancy Pants True Friend:
Hello there! Happy Friday!
Spring break starts NOW! YAY! I have been working on a layout pretty much all week, here and there, when I had time. It's not one of my favorite layouts, but the challenge was so fun, I just had to play along!
Here is the Twistback Thursday challenge I played along with at Sketch-N-Scrap:
#1. The BACK. We have dragged out a sketch from the past. This particular one is from Sept. 1, 2013:
#2. The TWIST! You can only use WHITE CARDSTOCK/PAPER/TAGS. That's right folks, you need to create your own designs here. Make your decorative papers, embellishments, title, sentiments, using inks, paints, stamping, sprays, pens etc. Now no cheating!
I loved the sketch and yes, I was up for a challenge and this was challenge for me!
I used my Cameo and used 2 cut files from the Silhouette Store and cut them out on white cardstock. I used watercolors and Gelatos to color them. I then added lots of stitching.
I also cut the title on my Cameo:
The green is the negative part from the rectangle cut file:
I just want to share my layout: Yolo (You only live once), it's a popular thing my teenagers say:)
I used a Keren Gerber sketch over at Scrap Our Stash, I love her sketches! Besides the sketch, the twist was to use gold. I also am entering this layout for the March challenge at Creative Embellishments (a photo and a CE flourish) and Toni's Mix It Up challenge at Turtle Soup (use a mix of different 6x6 paper pads)
I used Fancy Pants Be Loved, Carta Bella Merry & Bright & a few other 6x6 papers I received in a RAK for this layout of Sierra all decked out for prom last year:
It's kind of hard to see in this picture, but I used a CE flourish, added gold embossing powder and then some Stickles to make it bling:
Here you can see my layers. I cut some arrows and a heart from a My Minds Washi Tape and added them along with a chipboard piece from Be Loved. What do you think of that gold May Arts ribbon? I love it! I cut it jagged to give more texture.
Here you can see some of my background work. I used a Tim Holtz stencil and texture paste for the diamonds. I also used a TCW stencil and some distress ink for the coffee stains. The mini Polaroid frame I cut by hand. I added some washi tape, mists and a punched border:
Here you can see some mist drips (I spray mist and then spritz with water), some more of that yummy May Arts gold ribbon, washi tapes and a fun gold heart from Studio Calico:
and how about that gold YOLO word banner? That's from Studio Calico also:
Happy Sunday! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
I just want to share a layout I created using Echo Park Creative Agenda along with a Stuck?! sketch.
I used a photo of the kids coloring while we were at the Henry Ford Museum a few years ago:
I used watercolors on my background papers to give more color. I cut my scribble circle on the Cameo and stitched with navy thread.
I popped the paintbrushes sticker up on pop dots to give more dimension and also added a few arrow enamels.
I fussy cut the camera from one of the papers and popped that up as well.
The "fun filled day" journaling card was perfect for this page!
