Freckled Foot

I asked my daughter McKayla if I could take a picture of the freckle on the bottom of her foot because I wanted to make a scrapbook page about it.  She agreed, but she was like “Oh Mom.” and she covered her face when I took the picture.

I wanted use bright colors for this page because McKayla’s favorite colors are bright pink and orange.

The backflow ground paper and the paper the photo is matted on are from my Citrus Twist Kit . the background paper is by Citrus Twist  and it has little pink, yellow and orange triangles all over it.  The paper I matted the photo on is by Pink Paislee. I used the front and back side the the Pink Paislee page.  One side was pink with black dotted circles and the other side was a black and white stripe.

I made a yellow tag with a die,  my Cuttlebug and a yellow gingham patterned paper from my stash.  The yellow paper was pretty thin so I cut two tags from the yellow paper and glued them together to make the tag sturdier.

I scattered pink sequins around the page.  The sequins also came from a Citrus Twist Kit.  There were pink and blue sequins in the kit, but I only used the pink ones on this layout.  The sequins are made of a thicker plastic than any I have seen before and they have a bit of an iridescent shine to them.

The alpha stickers were also from a kit. They are a peachy orange color and are they are kind of  translucent, but they didn’t come with any manufacture information so I don’t know who made them.

I also added one puffy butterfly sticker to the bottom right of the photo.  The sticker is from an American Crafts Thickers sheet that, again, was in my Citrus Twist Kit.

Some of the embellishments in the kit came in a small glassine bag.  I saved the bag and used it to hold the tag that’s being the photo.  I wrote my journaling on the tag and stamped the top of the tag with a stamp from the kit that said “seriously cute”.

I kept this page pretty simple, and I love it!

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.

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.
