Abstract Fun Layout

Hello Everybody!

A few days ago I posted a layout about the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.  As I went through pictures for that layout I came across these two photos which worked great for this page.

I used paint (Golden fluid naphthol red light and carbon black) to make the background.  I used different papers to back the photos.  I have been watching youtube videos where people just glue there picture and cut the pattern paper around the picture.  They use scissors!  LOL!  I love this.  I feel like I'm using more paper and it feels a bit more organic.  If it's a trend-I like it! :)

I used a silhouette font for the title.  And used pop dots.  

Here is another close up of the splatters and journaling.  I used these dots that seem to be made of a rubbery material.  And I used them up-woot!  

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

Festival of the Arts Layout

Hello Everybody!

I am sharing a layout I made for a Facebook Challenge group.  It's called Confessions of a Paper Addict and a super talented lady named Virginia Walker.  You can also see her on Instagram and YouTube and she has an awesome store on Etsy with cut files!

So I used her messy circles cut file for this layout out. 

I have been wanting to do a rainbow effect for awhile so this seemed to all come together.  I sponged Distress Paint on the main cardstock.  And when I cut those letters (silhouette store font Fun) I painted those also.  

The little bits are chipboard pieces from EK Success-a disney set of them, and then Pebbles from a loonnngggg time ago.  LOL  And some Queen and Company gems.  

I'm trying to do my own challenge which is to make 30 scrapbook pages before I buy anything new.  This is my 10th one.  I haven't bought anything new (woohoo!) I don't always post the layouts but I'm definitely trying to stick with it.  :)

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

Red and Yellow Layout

Hello Everybody!

Tonight I was inspired by a sketch and washi tape.  I will be honest-I looked all through my washi tape and found two red designs.  I put the washi on the cardstock and then I went and looked for a picture.  Usually I have the picture first and build the page around it.  There was something very fun doing it a bit backwards-but I don't know if I can do that all the time!

I am working on using my stash-I have set a goal of making 30 pages before I buy anything new.  (I know!  But I am trying to stay strong!) lol!  This make page 7.

I would like to submit this to the following challenges:

Some Product Details:  I used Golden's Diarylide Yellow paint to make the background dots.  Washi tape from Recollections (Michaels).  I made the gears from some of the left over mat paper.  Chipboard bits from Pebbles and the red stars are from ScrapYard 329.  The red letters and & are Hot off the Press and Yellow is Thickers.  And then there are some things I just found in my stash that worked.

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...stay in color! :)

Lucky Card

Hello Everybody!

I made this card and forgot to post it yesterday!  

Green is the background-I took the picture of the card on a white paper lol.  I cut Yupo paper on the Silhouette.  Then I used the old school Ranger inks to color the shamrock.  I cut glitter gold paper using Tim Holtz letter dies (I love these!).  The white panel is a shamrock embossing folder-this is the first time I have used it.  Woo Hoo! :)

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

Yellow Card

Hello Everybody!

There's a new challenge called Rainbow Card Challenge and this month the color is yellow.  I thought I love yellow!  I can do that easily!

Ha! It was not that easy-even though I brought out all things yellow.  I inked Ranger Chrome Yellow ink on a Crafter's Workshop stencil. 

The overall feeling was whimsical so I thought I would free hand Nuvo Crystal Drops.  It's whimsy-I'm not sure if it conveys that to other people.  I had a Happy Birthday sticker and this chipboard flower from Pebbles.  I added some Stickles in the middle.  

I have to say the Nuvo really holds up.  It's cool to run your finger on the raised dots.  :)

I would also like to submit this card to the following challenges:

Until next time my friends!

Cute Desk Card

Hello Everybody!

I have made some cards and I am so excited to share them with you!  This card I made for my dad-who is a little hard to make cards for.  He doesn't fish or play golf-he is more into computers.  I wanted to make him something cool so this is a cut file from the Silhouette Design Store.

This is the inside of the card-on the laptop it says Happy Birthday.  I used little brads for the knobs.  I used enamel accents from Ranger for the center of the flower.  The paper on the "wall" and "floor" are from K & Company.

I always see these cards and wonder what people put on the front of the card.  So I had to use my own creativity (lol) and created this:

This embossing folder and the little letters (die cutes) are Tim Holtz.  I used scrap paper (woo hoo! trying to use those bits up!) I love these little letters!  

Unfortunately, I'm not the greatest paper engineer there is-so when I folded my masterpiece-it did NOT fold right LOL.  So I pushed the card as far down as I could (hoping the desk will be ok) and had to use a larger envelope and some bubble wrap.  

I am submitting this desk card to:

Pink Layered Card

Hello Everybody!

I have been creating but not posting-time is just flying by!

I have seen and bought a couple of these layering files from the Silhouette Design Store-if you use the design store I'm sure you have seen them.  They are layered files that create depth.  So cool!

I put a light pink on the bottom and a bright pink in the middle to give it some pop.  This card is for a sweet lady who's mom passed away.  Her mom was 101!  What a blessing that is!  Her mom's request for everyone attending the service was to wear pink.  So a pink sympathy card was what was needed.  It was a Celebration of Life and not a funeral-it was a very special event indeed. 

I have some more cards I will be posting so stayed tuned! :)

Until next time my friends...stay pretty in pink :)
