Happy Watercolour

IMG469 card

Hey everyone, back with my second card for today. This one was coloured with my Inktense Pencils and is a Sherri Baldy My Besties IMG469.

IMG469 Card 2

This card is a little out of the norm for me. I had a fabric piece in my stash and built the card around that. I decided the piece needed some colour so I used my Peerless watercolours to achieve that and then painted the wood veneer with Golden Titanium White Heavy Body Acrylic, and added some watercolor on them as well. I then layered it all on some patterned papers.

Hello There

Hello there 1

Hey everyone, Here is another card from me. This stamp is from CC Designs and is called Baby Willow, she is coloured with my Prismacolor Pencils.

Hello There 2

 

This is what I would call a scrap card, all of the patterned papers on this card were out of my scrap bag (leftovers from other projects). They are all distressed on the edges and inked with vintage photo distress ink, then layered on kraft cardstock to allow the card to not appear to busy.

The trims are from my stash, some lace and some Sari Silk Ribbon. The pearls are from Recollections, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the hello there sentiment is from Scraptastic.

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 Week 2 c

 

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.

2015 Week 2 f

 

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.

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.

Best Family Ever

Best Family Ever 1

 

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.

Best Family Ever 2

 

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.)

Best Family Ever 3

 

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.

2015 Week 1

DSC_0003

 

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.
