Bike Kid Boy Card

Bike Kid 1

 

Hey everyone, sometimes simple is the way to go, especially when it comes to male cards. The flowers and lace and all the pretty layers just feel off if I try to make them work.

Bike Kid 2

This image is rather large so I stuck to just a few simple patterned papers backed with black cardstock, I always seem to find myself reaching for black when it comes masculine cards. The sentiment is just a simple messages on the inside of the card.

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.

Let’s Bake

Cookies

Hey everyone! Christmas is so close, and I am almost ready!! One of the last things I do to prepare is a bunch of baking and this past weekend that included a crazy amount of cookie baking (I think its my sons favorite activity). So here I am scrapbooking a few instagram pictures of the cookies we made on the weekend.

Cookies 2

I am a subscriber to the Hip Kit Club scrapbooking kit, and on the member forum on facebook, Kimberly gave us a weekend challenge and this is the layout I did for the challenge. The recipe that needed to be used for the challenge was using an image she posted as inspiration for the layout (that is where my stenciled backround came in to play), include a minimum of three fonts in your title, use stamping on your project (this is difficult to see on my layout but on the bright green paper I stamped falling snow in versamark and embossed it in silver), include gold or silver, and use a minimum of three patterned papers.

Cookies 3

 

It was a challenge for me to make sure I had everything included that is for sure! I rarely follow a recipe or sketch for my layouts, but it was fun to play along!

Star Birthday

sss bday

 

 

Hey everyone! It has been a while, I am hopefully going to be here and be blogging more frequently. But today I am here with a fun card!!!

 

The back round of this card was made with Hero Arts Gold embossing powder, and the flowers from the SSS Life is a Journey stamp set, I then took a piece of card stock slightly larger and covered the edge of it in the gold embossing powder as well and layered it in behind.

 

sss bday2

 

 

The shaker card was made using Doodle Bug Peacock Vellum, the large star inside is from Heidi Swapp’s Colour Magic star chipboard pieces (I don’t know if these are still available anywhere, I then filled the rest of the shaker card with Studio Calico tiny star wood veneers, and studio calico sequins in aqua and pink.

To close the shaker I put a piece of acetate on tip and wrapped washi around to hide the foam tape, the washi tape is from an older My Minds Eye line.

 

SSS Bday 3

 

The sentiment is from SSS Birthday Messages stamp set, again embossed using the Hero Arts Gold embossing powder. I, then, cut a slit on either side of the shaker element and fed a piece of May Arts Sheer ruffle edge ribbon in turquoise and tied it in a bow.

 

Hugs,

Jess

For the love of glitter

Distress glitter 1

 

Glitter is such a wonderful thing. Which is still odd for me to stay I was always so opposed to it for so long until I discovered microfine glitter… Then Distress Glitter entered my world and now I love all things that sparkle and shine and make me look like a walking disco.

I started with my favourite Tim Holtz Rays Stencil, using Golden Light Molding Paste through it. I then added the Mustard Seed Distress Glitter to the bottom part of the rays tapping it lightly with my finger to push it into the molding paste, then dumping the excess off. I repeated the same on the top half with Picked Raspberry Distress Glitter.

Distress glitter 2

I then cut a tag using Spellbinders Fancy Frame Tags 3 and coloured it as well as the back panel with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the SSS Birthday Messages stamp set in Versamark ink and embossed it with Hero arts White embossing powder.

 

Distress Glitter 3

 

I then took Studio Calico Star Burst wood veneer (I can not find a link to these) and painted them with Distress Ink in Picked Raspberry, and Mustard Seed.
