Soccer Layout

Hello Everybody!

I'm using the double page sketch over at Stick It Down to create this fun layout.  Here's the sketch:

And here's my take on the sketch.

I used Doodlebug pattern paper, green cardstock from Craftsmith and some letter stickers.  I used my Silhouette to make the soccer ball.  And I used a few little soccer stickers from Paper Studio that are a bit sparkly and squishy-so fun!

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...Goal! :)

Hello Santa Layout

Hello Everybody!

Today I finished a layout page using the single sketch at Stick It Down.  I love the triangles!  And thankfully one of the team members-Melissa Kay-told how to make these triangles.  You make a 4 inch square and cut it in half.  What??  Yeah that easy--and thank goodness because until I visited her blog I had no idea.  LOL  Geometry and I have never gotten along--especially since high school.  But that's a story for a different day.

I used a glitter paper from Recollections.  Most of the papers, letters, and stickers are from Doodlebug.  I don't know what the collection is called but it was one of my favorites from a few years ago.  Also, there are some Tim Holtz stars at the top, clear rhinestones, a bling candy cane from Hobby Lobby and some Thickers (the red metallic corners). 

Here's the sketch.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...keep that Christmas spirit coming even if it's January! :)

Happy New Year!

Hello Everybody!

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone has had a great couple of weeks!  I have had a great time with family and friends-and hope for more of that in 2019 :)

I got to be a little crafty-and I didn't realize how much I missed it!

There is a Facebook Group Challenge to do a Tim Holtz tissue wrap tag.  I had to dust off my supplies (yikes!) and then retrain myself on how to use the paints and stuff.  Very sad I know.  But there is a happy ending.  I made this cool tag and got a few more papers going because I poured out too much product.  A little goes a long way-LOL  It's all good though!

This is about 99% all Tim Holtz.  Here's what I used:
Ranger Tag
Distress Paints: Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, Salt Ocean, Picked Raspberry
Distress Oxide Ink: Picked Raspberry (on the 2019 cardstock under the glitter, around the edges
Melange Tissue Paper
Distress Spray Stain-Picket Fence
Lower Case Sizzix TH letter dies (663074)
Rubons-Life Quotes, Botanical, Words
Big Chat Stickers
Distress Glitter Spun Sugar
Glossy Accents
Mirrored Stars
Natural Trimmings Ribbon

The butterfly takes center stage on this cool background.  I didn't want to cover up that part of the tissue paper.  I added water to react with the paints also.  

Like I said-it has been too long since I made a tag so hopefully there will be more in the future.  :)  There are a few backgrounds in the making from this tag-so be sure to check back!

Until next time my friends...Get your wings and let's fly!

Hugs Birthday Card

Hello Everybody!

Let me show the birthday card I made for my friend-and then I can tell you about it! :)

I was looking for things that my friend likes-and I didn't have much (in the way of farm animals and cowgirlish type things).  And as I was looking for something else (isn't that always the way?) it occurred to me that I am giving the card so it was ok if it was more a me card than a her card.

I like to make cards for people based on the people-I know many of us here in blogland do-that's part of the fun of make cards for our friends and family.  But I saw this old Stampin' Up stamp which reminded me of my spazzy self.  I used a Spell Binder die to make the cool scalloped circle. I saw the background that I had created for a different project but didn't work for that project.  (which is a stencil and distress oxides)  And then everything else came together.  I used Thickers foam letters to spell out Hugs because it was fun and we are always hugging. :)  LOL.

The cut little butterfly is from Queen and Company and the sparkly flower sequins are from Pink and Main.  I colored my spazzy "self" with Copic markers. :)  I used Nuovo Embellishment Mousse around the edges of the card to give them a little sparkle.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

{Pin}spirational Challenge #221:  The photo inspiration:
Here pink dress-definitely an inspiration to this card.  But I hope she doesn't sit up to fast-the top doesn't look that secure.  And she's going to need hugs if she falls off of that bike with those shoes.  (LOL I'm teasing I'm sure this is a photo shoot sort of thing and she's a model.)

Beach Day Layout

Hello Everybody!

Today I am sharing a layout I created that were inspired by a theme challenge and a sketch challenge.  

First-Here is my layout:

The sketch is from Sketches In Thyme.  I used Echo Park paper and some scraps.  I also found some brads in my stash-and I don't know about you but when I use up stuff I have had for a very long time-I am very happy! 

This is sketch #335

The theme of this layout was inspired by Challenge YOUrself.  The theme was to have a picture of myself at the beach.  And since I just went-I thought Yay!  Time to scrap a recent picture :)

Thank you for stopping by today!  Until next time my friends..."Beach Hair-Don't Care!"

2018 Layout

Hello Everybody!

I love when inspiration hits all at once.  I have been looking at all of the wonderful sketches over at Stick It Down and thinking this is the month that I make one of these sketches come to life.

And then that month passes and I create a few things-but not according to one of the sketches.  Well-for the month of July that changes!  Yay!  I was looking through my animal paper and came across this cute paw background paper.  And with the 2018 on the sketch-I knew I had to make a cute page about our dog.

So here it is!

I made the little charms at the top using a file from the Silhouette Design store along with the 2018.  The papers are old stampin up cardstock-chocolate chip and regal rose.  And then the trim is a golden color from a pack of on sale trims from Hobby Lobby!

Our sweet puppy isn't this little anymore-LOL!

Here is the sketch that inspired:

There is still time to play at Stick It Down.  

Thank you for stopping by today!  It was great to see you!  Until next time my friends...keep being crafty! :)

That was Awesome Layout

Hello Everybody!

It feels like forever since I have made a 2 page scrapbook layout.  Probably because it has been forever.  LOL!  So I am very happy I was able to make this layout using the sketch from Stick It Down and the theme from Use Your Stuff.

This is from a trip I took last year with my sister to San Juan.  It was a business trip but they had fun built in.  We were able to take a tour of the Bacardi factory.  It was awesome! :)  On the bottom right is my bracelet "ticket."  We learned how to make three drinks-mojito being my favorite.  

Here is a closeup of the cluster on the top.  I used some washi tape and chipboard pieces my friend Amber gave me.  (thanks! the paper too!)  The pom pom flowers are Queen and Company, and I just love them!

For the background I used Wendy Vecchi's translucent embossing paste and a diamond stencil.  I wanted to add something so there wouldn't be quite so much white (or in this case pink) space.  I love the clear embossing paste because it seems to add just a little something without it being too much.  :)

Thank you for stopping by today!  

Here are the challenges that I am submitting this layout too:

Until next time my friends...let the adventures begin!  Edit-I was highlighted!  Thank you Use Your Stuff! :)
