2015 Week 2

2015 week 2 a

Wahoo back with week 2! Is is sad that I feel really excited after 3 weeks to have 2 of them done. This spread is using cards from past Scraptastic This Life Noted Kits. This week was a crazy expensive week, my son got completely spoilt, he got his hockey gear, and then we purchased a PS4 (which I had been saving for sense they got released and they had one at Walmart with the Lego Batman game so I picked it up)

2015 Weeek 2 d

 

You can see in that picture I added a vertical photo, the issue I ran into was when I went to put my layout into its page protector, of course I planned it on the side where the opening was on the spread from the prior week. Easy fix I took my craft knife and ruler and cut a slit at the top of that pocket on the back side that is only as wide as the photo, slid the card in the other side then slid my photo in the slit I had made on the front and re-attached it.

The other half of the spread of course follows the same colour pallet as the prior page, and was also kept simple, a little journaling wood veneers, and an acetate word from Heidi Swapp. The tag I used on the photo of my son sleeping is cut from Tim Holtz’s tiny tabs and tags die.

If there is anything on this spread in-particular you would like to know where it came from, leave a comment and I will be sure to get back to you.

Lucky to be Cousins!

Lucky to be cousins

Hey everyone! I am here again with another layout to share with you all. I finally received my December Kit from Scraptastic on the 7th of January (Christmas slows all the mail down). I loved all the papers included in this kit!

Lucky to be cousins 2

My son and my niece are truly lucky to be as close in age as they are (3 weeks apart). I just felt this photo was perfect to show that. Just a simple lunch out with me and them playing at the table.

The background of this layout is Canson Watercolor paper. and I used Lindy’s stamp gang sprays to add colour (colours will be listed at the bottom of the post.

Infinity Christmas 2014

Disney 1 xmas

Wahoo, I am on a roll two blog posts and its only the 4th of January, and I have a few more that are ready to go, maybe I will keep up posting this year (fingers crossed).

This is a photo from my instagram from Christmas morning, one happy little guy with his new video game.

So I started this layout by adding gesso and Izink’s to the backround then splattering some gold mist.

Layering up some of my scraps from the December Hip Kit and adding some tissue paper from my stash finishing the base for the photo to lay on,

Embellishing with different bits and pieces from the kit brought this layout together rather fast, and the Elle’s studio grey letter stickers were perfect because there are so many of every letter I had no issue making the words I needed.

If you are looking for a kit to try, I highly recommend the Hip Kits, Kim seems to find the perfect balance between paper, and TONS of embellishments to meet any need you may run into on your layout.

Products used:

Hip Kit – November Main Kit (sold out)

Hip Kit – November Color Add-on

Shimelle Grey Precision Pen

Heidi Swapp Gold Lame Color Shine

Freckled Fawn Metal Hearts (Oh Deer Me kit) I can’t find them in their shop any longer

Puddle Jumpin’

Puddle Jumpin 1

 

Hey everyone! Welcome to 2015, I hope this year treats you all well in whatever goals, aspirations, and just life in general. This is my first layout I have made this year. I did it yesterday before I began what I am calling the “great clean up of 2015”, but that’s another post for another day (if I ever complete the clean up).

Puddle Jumpin 2

 

This is my son in the summer time, I have a low spot in the front of my driveway, and I honestly believe, he secretly hopes for rain so he can go out and play in the puddle.

Puddle Jumpin 3

 

I really had fun with this layout and kept it very simple… I went into it with a goal. Aside from the 12×12 background paper, I only wanted to use scraps. Best part, I succeeded! I also got to use a bunch of my die cuts and stickers which was also exciting to me.
