Scrapbook Page – Shape

This week the challenge on the Victoria Marie Facebook group was to make a layout using a picture in a shape other than a square or rectangle.image

For the shape I choose two Sizzix framelit flower nesting dies to cut out the picture and the black border around the picture.   In the picture Emma and McKayla are sitting in a tree and I like how the flower shape compliments the image.

Most of the patterned paper comes from a Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm paper pad by American Crafts with the addition of  the black paper with the camera print behind the yellow bird which is from an Amy Tangerine paper pad.

I stamped and colored the three monkeys at the bottom of the page by the title.  I  added black paint spatter to the bottom and left side of the page and a butterfly, yellow bird and swirl flower sticker which are from a set bought at Dollar Tree.

Baby Shower Card

This past weekend I attended a baby shower where I gave the mom to be this pink baby outfit card I made which was inspired by several Pinterest pins.

The card base is heavy weight white card stock.

I added a layer of  dark pink card stock to the card base and topped it with a light pink card stock that I embossed with a basket weave embossing folder.

For the outfit part of the card I used a circle die to cut out the neck and leg openings.  I used a sunburst die and the circle die to create the white trim around the openings.

To create the arm areas measured about 1 1/2″ from the top of the card, marked 1/2″ in from the side of the card, drew a diagonal line from the mark to the left opening and then cut along the line.

I also added to punched white circles for buttons with dark pink hearts in the middle.

After I had the outfit finished I embossed it with a dot embossing folder and then added it to the front of the card.

Back to School Scrapbook page – sketch Challenge

The weekly challenge in the Victoria Marie FB Group this week is a sketch challenge this based on the sketch below by Laura Whitaker.

image

For this challenge I made a page of Emma & McKayla’s first days back to school and I love how it turned out.

image

The papers are from Shimelle True Stories 12″ x 12″ paper pad by American Crafts and a sheet of black card stock.  I used a stamp by Tattered Angels Screen Prints called Notes From The Garden and some black ink to add the swirls to the background paper.  I also added glossy accents to all the black dots on the background paper to add another texture to the finished page.  The coffee cup on the bottom left of the center piece was fussy cut from one of the pages from the paper pad.  I added the title using Tim Holtz idea-ology Label Letters.

Quick and easy flower birthday Card

This is a quick and easy birthday card that I made for my daughter to give to a friend.

I used heavy weight 110lb Recollections card stock for the base.  I inked the edged of the patterned paper and attached it to the base, then I used my StampeRor to stamp the sentiment so that I could stamp it over and over and get a really saturated inked image.  After stamping the sentiment I added the flower to the card using Glossy Accents for the adhesive.  (The flower was a left over from making hair clips with my daughters a couple of years ago. )

2015 December Daily pages

I previously shared my December Daily album cover and the pages of the album that I made in advance.  There are the finished album pages.

I moved things around on the pre-made pages as needed and added more embellishments once the pictures where placed.

I also added an additional page in the back of the album for extra Christmas Day pictures I wanted to include.

This was my first December Daily album and I’m really happy with how it turned out.  My favorite aspect of the project was how it helped me be more aware and focus on what was happening in our lives. There were a few days I forgot to take a picture or make note of what we were doing so I used pictures from a past Christmas  for one of the days I missed and made a list of my favorite Christmas songs for another.

2015 Christmas Cards

For my 2015 Christmas cards  I used papers and embellishments that I used in my December Daily album in addition to stamping and embossing.

image                                image

I really like the two gold and white cards so I make six more cards with a similar design.  All the card have a white heavy weight card stock for the base. For the gold and white cards I used a sheet of 12″ x 12″ gold paper layered with assorted sheets of gold and white patterned paper from a 6″ x 6″ Gifts of Gold paper pad by The Paper Studio.  I also used white and clear embossing powder, gold and green ink, stamps and an ornament die cut from red and white striped cardstock.
