Family layout

Hello and welcome to today's post of a layout that I created using a sketch from Janice Daquila-Pardo of theconstantscrapper.com. I thought using a sketch would be easier for me to come up with a layout and this one was cute.
Here's the sketch that I used:

Here's the layout I created.

1. Start with Pacific Point card stock as the background and made a smaller panel of Melon Mambo card stock, then run one edge through the Big Shot using the Adorning Accents edgelits.
2. Cut a panel of the Bohemian DSP and adhere to the center of the background.
3. Cut a 1/2" strip of the Pacific Point and adhere it to the top of the Bohemian DSP.
4. Cut a strip of Robin's Red Paper pack (Hot off the Press, run through the Big Shot with the same Adorning Accents edgelits and place at the bottom of the Bohemian DSP.
5. I used the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die and the Big Shot and punch out the pieces to adhere to the left side of my page. And then for the bigger hexagons in black I used the Hexagon Punch.
6. I die cut a butterfly using the Butterflies Thinlits and added 5 pearls to the body.
7. The "Family" title uses the letters from the Amy Tangerine "Remarks" Little Sticker Book.
8. The journaling was written on Melon Mambo card stock strips and adhered to the right side of the layout.
9. The final touch was stamping and die-cutting a flower from the Flower Patch/Flower Flair set and adding an enamel dot from the Home For Christmas enamel dots.

... Here is the sketch and the layout side by side.

Stampin' Up Embellished Ornaments- Loving Wishes card

Today's card project is one of my favorites so far. I love the ornament framelits and the candy dots so much and I knew I had to use both on this card. Real Red card stock is the backdrop for the Merry Moments DSP and the tag that was stamped on Whisper White card stock using Old Olive ink. The Gold ribbon was used as a string for the ornament to hang from. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Stampin' Up: Snow Place

It's Thursday and boy am I ready for the weekend. It's been a long week and I need some downtime.

Today's project is clean and simple and goes together so quickly. This would be a great one to mass-produce and if you change out the sentiment it could just be a winter card. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Christmas Joy layout

Hello everyone. I hope you have been enjoying your weekend because I know I have. Today I have created a Christmas layout using photos from last year of my son, his cousin and also his Uncle. It was hard coming up with the color scheme because all of the guys are wearing an orange colored shirt. Orange doesn't scream Christmas to me but my brother-in-law took these photos of all of them as a present for me, so what can you do but roll with it. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

.
1. Start with a Pear Pizzazz layer of Core'dinations card stock (12"x12") and then adhered a piece of the Designer series paper (11"x11").

2. Cut out the scalloped edges with dies and the Big Shot and then sponge on the color with Early Espresso ink and adhere that to each side of the Tangelo Twist piece of card stock (that's where the orange comes in).
3. Put 2 pieces of the Trim the Tree DSP (2 of the same in my case)over the Tangelo Twist panel.

4. The tree in the bottom left corner is cut with the Tree Punch using Old Olive card stock, the arrows were die-cut with the Big Shot using the Label Card Thinlets dies and sponged with Tangelo Twist ink.

5. The banners were die-cut out of Pear Pizzazz and Gold Glimmer card stocks.

Stampin' Up Sparkly Seasons

Good morning and welcome to the card post for the day. I just think this card is so cute and hope the recipient will as well. I chose a Real Red card base, some Designer Series Paper, a little heat embossing and of course some stamping. I think any little girl would love to open this up on Christmas morning, maybe with a gift card inside (lol). Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.


The sentiment.

1. Create card base out of Real Red card stock at 4 ¼” x 11”. Score at 5 ½”.
2. Cut a piece of Home for Christmas DSP at 4” x 5 ¼.
3. Adhere DSP to front of the card base.
4. Cut a piece of Pool Party card stock so that there is about ½” on either side and center in the middle of the DSP.
5. Stamp images, heat emboss, color and cut out. Center images in the center of the card front and pop up on dimensional as desired. Tie a bow around the base of the globe.
6. Stamp sentiment in the top center.
7. For the inside of the card I used a sentiment from the Versatile Christmas stamp set, stamped in Early Espresso on a piece of Whisper White card stock.

Additional supplies used:

Echo Park: Ghost Town- Halloween Layout

Hello and welcome to the a layout share for today. This Halloween layout took a little while for me to figure out but I like the end results. The Echo Park Ghost Town collection came at just the right time and I loved using the chipboard pieces included in the kit. The doily in the bottom corner is from Stampin' Up and the Black card stock came from my stash. I don't really like my handwriting so I chose to create a hidden pocket with the BOO card and added some ribbon to the Stampin' Up Tag Topper punch so it would be easy to pull out. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Stampin' Up: Peaceful Pines- "Tis the Season

Hello and welcome to today's post. It's another Christmas card but it's not using the traditional colors. Watermelon Wonder and Basic Black cardstock with a a little Winter Wonderland Designer Series vellum and this card really came together. Even with all of that, the card was missing something so I added some black candy dots and I think that did the trick. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.

Stampin' Up: To You and Yours Too- Merry Christmas

Hello. I hope your weekend has been relaxing. I've been working on a few projects and the one I'd like to share today is a Christmas card, using some Designer series vellum, a little heat embossing and a die set that I think brings out the stamped image. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.



I really like the white embossing for the sentiment without taking away from the Designer Series Vellum.

New Post- TBT scrapbook layout

Hello and welcome to a simple Layout share for TBT. I know this is the first time I have posted a layout but there are some new things I'm working on for the near future and thought I would start with this.

I think I just used some papers that I had bought at my local craft store and then my sister-in-law showed me how to incorporate the pieces I had picked. I love how this simple layout turned out and have more pages to share with you.
Let me know what you think about the layout and if you would be interested in seeing true process videos.

Thank you for visiting and check back often for more inspiration.

Stampin' Up- Remarkable You: I'm so Grateful for You card

Hello and welcome today's post. Before I share today's project I just want to apologize for not having the weekly deals up yesterday but I was in the hospital and was drained when I returned home. I had to work my day job today and I'm just getting to post what I had planned for yesterday. So on to the project. I will be sharing a card I made with a fabulous stamp set from Stampin' Up called Remarkable You. I just love the mix of colors and the use of one stamp masked 3 times and then colored in with markers. Take a look at the project below and let me know what you think.
