Hey everyone. I am back with another card from the Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps online Krop. This was challenge #2, the card sketch was laid out for a square card but I do more of the A2 size so I make it work for me.
The Pretty Little Pixies stamp set has been a favorite of mine again lately (I have owned it for a long time.) I coloured the image with my Prisma Color Pencils.
So second part of the challenge was pink, so I added that into my colouring, as well as chose the Basic Grey Highline collection for my patterned paper. I added just a little detail using a notebook punch from one of the knock out sets from American Crafts.
The Hi sentiment is from the Gold Foil Project life kit, and enamel dots finish off the outside of the card. Inside of the card I stamped “Wishing you a day that sparkles!” from the same stamp set.
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)
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.
Hey everyone, I am usually a one or two photo’s on a page type person, I just seem to find more photos difficult to work with. So this layout has EIGHT, that’s right count them!
These photo’s are from back in August of 2014, my sister got married and everyone came up for the wedding, my parents rented a suit in a hotel across the street from the venue and we all hung out in there having a couple of beverages before the wedding.
I used the labels to list the people in order in the photo (you never know who may look at these and not remember everyone by their appearance at that time, or if I will always remember. Also I find I enjoy having names listed when there are many people in a photo.)
So on the bottom of the layout I used smaller photo’s to have closer looks at some of the people that were there, as well as all the children that were there.
Hey everyone, something most of you that follow my blog may not know is that I am a “project lifer.” This is my second year doing this project and figured I would share it with you this year. As such this is my first week for 2015. Now these posts will be a little different then some, I wont have a linked list of products I used at the end, as lots of it is bits and pieces and left overs.
So I used some of my December 2014 Scraptastic This Life Noted kit, as well as other pieces from previous Scraptastic Kits. There are little bits from Freckled Fawn kits (I no longer subscribe to their kit). The cork stars are from Studio Calic0, and the cork family is from Elles’s Studio Sycamore Lane.
The lables were purchased from Studio Calico’s website a while ago (I can no longer find them on their site), they are printables and I cut them all out (recently as they are in this PL layout lol). They are acetate pieces from a small Project Life kit I picked up at Micheals.
