Birthday cards

Happy Monday.  I created a few birthday cards this weekend and I though I would share what I made. 

This one I entered into the Kiwi Lane Week 33 Sketch challenge.

Sketch with Stash Challenge #6 "Game On"

This is my entry 
Sketch with Stash Challenge #6
"Game On"
Your challenge is to
Create a layout inspired by the sketch below
AND... you must include at least one game card and/or game piece on your page.  
  (Example: Playing card, bingo card, wooden game pieces, monopoly pieces, etc)

 Here is the Sketch.
All my friends and family know how much I love Scrabble so I was really inspired by this theme "Game On"  I just had to use Scrabble tiles in my Layout.

Thanks for Stopping by. 

It's another Kiwi Lane Sketch Challenge

I hope your not bored with yet another DT Doodles Sketch Challenge by Kiwi Lane. I do enter almost every week.  I just love their templates and how great my pages look when I find inspiration using their sketches. 

WEEK 31 DT Doodles Sketch


So I was sitting at my desk wondering what paper I wanted to use for this sketch and I see my pile of leftovers from the "poppy" collection that I used on my layout for My Creative Scrapbook and I decided to see if I could create my layout for this challenge with the scraps.... so here goes. 

First off I used my Scallop template and my glitter gel pen to create this border, I love this Poppy paper.

Then I cut another border using one of the Sunnybrook Lane templates. and I cut 2 other patterned pieces to coordinate.

I then traced a flower and dry embossed on the back for texture. I also inked all my pieces with coordinating chalk ink.

After that I layered all my pieces together following the sketch and added my Embellishments.  Now I just need to figure out which photos to put on here.

Thanks for stopping by.

Scrap Our Stash August Challenge

This is my Entry into the Scrap Our Stash August Challenge.

Stash Challenge #6 ~ Summer Time!

you MUST include (3) or more pre-made Die-Cuts embellishments from you stash!

I used the MME Breaking Free collection to create my layout. I love the die cuts that came in this collection.  They work perfect on this layout. I actually created a 2 page layout but I only submitted the single page for the challenge 
These photos were taken at Hannah's 15th Birthday

Summer inspiration challenge

 This is our inspiration board for the Summer challenge going on now at  come on over and check out the challenge.

This is my take on the Summer Challenge.  I used MME collection - Collectable "Noteable" to create and embellish my layout.

 I'm in love with the tiny words and tiny sayings by MME.  I find myself using them on every layout lately.  I really like that I can express the way I feel about the photos I'm scrap booking. I also used so fun sequins along the side of my tag.
I added the "rays" to my sun title by hand cutting some patterned paper then attaching them behind the sun with 3D foam squares.

I created this flower by layering die cut flowers I cut using my Sizzix Tim Holtz Tattered floral die.  The key to making this flower POP is to ink all the layers and then glue do together. Of course I used the cool enamel dots by MME to the center of this flower.  You can see on my layout several ways I used these dots to add embellishment.  These are so fun and come in a large variety of sizes and colors.   

I hope you found a little summer inspiration in my post today.

I love my Kiwi Lane templates, I used these templates on my layout;  tiny brackets, Sweetheart Accents, Storybrook lane 12" border, and floral accents.  The pp I choose was from the "Poppy" collection from Little Yellow Bicycle company.  I did not have a large flower template for the background so I hand sketched my own on to chipboard and created my own template.

Thanks for checking out my latest scrapbook project.
