Hi All! Hopefully you're enjoying this beautiful spring weather we're having. When it's not windy, I love to take my scrappy materials outside, breathe in the fresh air, and really see how my scrappy bling sparkles in the sunlight. Anyone with me? Anyone? LOL
Today, as promised, I'm sharing another section from my greeting card envelope album. This section highlights all the work, and fun, my Phi Theta Kappa alumni association accomplished at a recent student leadership event.
As you can see, I used Moxxie's Winterland collection as the base for this section. Even though the event was held in October, ice skating and Frozen were running themes throughout the weekend so I wanted to capture that with my materials. However, I also worked in elements from Moxxie's new Volleyball line to highlight some of the key moments of our "down" time.
For my journaling, I wrote out a card and placed a picture on the back of it. Then I attached a vellum pocket to the page and placed the journal card inside. This way, when somebody pulls the card out, they can still see the skates behind the envelope.
I tried to keep the back side of the insert as simple as possible because the front already has a ton of layers. One thing about this type of mini album is that it bulks up fast! Or, it may just be that I have a secret obsession with foam tape - that isn't too much of a secret, though.
Again, I opted to stay with Moxxie's Winterland collection, using the a-side of Frozen. I used a strip of washi tape to give some foundation for the Moxxie Grey alpha stickers to create my title. I can honestly say that I LOVE the Moxxie Grey alpha stickers. They just seem to match everything.
Alright, scrappy friends! I hope you like this section of my album and get inspired to make your own. It's a great project and so easy to fill!!
Good morning! I love the beauty of spring! Everything is just so beautiful. I especially love the tulips. I found a couple of pictures where my two beautiful little girls when they were 4 and 2 years old. I had found them outside smelling and playing with the tulips.
This layout is great for using all those spare scraps! I started out with my base with a sheet from the football line Grid Iron. Then as I was digging through my Springtime line I started to notice I had a bunch of little spare scraps, I decided to try to incorporate them. It was a lot of fun piecing it all together. I even used some of the Moxxie Alphas for the date.
I even loved adding little extra's here and there such as enamel dots, stickers & brads. My favorite was stitching the word Love on.
Hello! Samantha here today to share 1 sketch and 2 layouts from that sketch. Here is the sketch I created and will be working with for my layouts today:
I thought it would be fun to show you how versatile sketches can be. I often say that just changing the paper collection makes the layout completely different. Today, I'm going to take that one step further to show that even if you use the exact same paper collection, you can end up with very different layouts.
I have pictures of both of my boys with their class for this past year's homecoming prep rally parade. Choosing papers was as easy as reaching for Grid Iron. For my first layout, instead of creating a title, I used a strip of Grid Iron that had one on it for me already!
My second layout uses the same sketch and Grid Iron, but choosing different papers within the collection can give you a very different looking layout.
The biggest change I made to the sketch for this layout was using a vertical photo. I even repeated the use of the "Team Spirit" stickers as an accent piece.
Do you use many sketches when you scrap? If you decide to use this one, I'd love to see what you do with it!
I used a stamp from the Unity Stamp Co. set Beautiful Wish to give the background some interest.
Then I used the flower stamp from the same set and stamped it with orange ink. What's up with me and orange flowers lately??
The sentiment is from a different Unity Stamp set, I don't know the name though. I thought it was perfect! I outlined it a bit with a white pen and splattered a little white ink on it too (because I can never help myself!).
Too much of a good thing can be wonderful! I hope I can report that I am having too much amazing weather next time I blog! That would truly be Wonderful!!!
The layout I created for today's post is in honor of Earth Day. This celebration is on April 22 (today!) - a day when people share their joy of nature and the Earth's environment. It's a day when many people plant flowers and trees, clean up trash on roadsides and in parks and share ways to promote recycling.
The title was made with Moxxie's black alphabet stickers. The word strip "Keep the Beauty" was done with a label maker. Finally, I added blue enamel dots in two sizes and backed the page onto black cardstock.
The purple crocuses in the photo are so beautiful! I hope that on Earth Day, and every day, we will help to "keep the beauty" of our planet.
Ange here today and I am SO excited to show you one of our newest lines!!!
Today I'm going to share with you a project I made using the brand NEW All Star Baseball line!
Look at this!
Don't you just LOVE those papers?
And after you're done scrapping some totally rocking baseball pages you can flip your scraps over and go with some fun 4th of July or patriotic pages. This line is AWESOME!!
In my family we do a lot of softball and baseball so I was ecstatic to get these new lines and jumped right into creating this layout:
I started with Play Ball as my base adding inked barcode strips from Play Ball and All Star Cutouts and the bat and ball strip from the cutouts paper also. Then I added mist to the page and started arranging my photos on the page.
I had a lot of fun using the cutouts sheet for my photo mats. The ball stitching along my main photo was cut off a journaling card.
A title is really easy to put together with the awesome sticker sheet!
Some of my favorite stickers on the sheet are the chevrons. They are great for pointing out things you might miss just glancing at the photo. Like the ball in my main photo or the ball in my son's catcher mitt in this photo.
The red alphas are perfect for this line. I love the way you can put them down and then move them a little if you need (like when you forget a t ;) )
Ask your favorite local scrap store when they're getting the NEW All Star Baseball line in from Moxxie.
Look at me getting all organized and getting stuff done!
I've been thinking ahead lately and trying to get out all birthday, anniversary, and congratulations cards out early. And so I have been working on Graduation cards. It's only a month until all those parties happen and I want to enjoy them!
So, I've created a few cards and here are the first couple...
Moxxie's Graduation Day papers are neutral to accommodate all school colors, ours is black and red.
These are for the girl graduates, next post is for the guys (there might even be some decorations).
Hi all, i am stopping by today to share a 6x6 birthday card i made using the springtime paper called dandelion wishes. I just can't seem to get enough of these beautiful papers!
When the paper is so pretty it really doesn't need much embellishing so to keep it simple i stamped the sentiments and pop dotted make a wish and inked the edges of card. Then i stickled the white flower puffs and added centers to the flowers.
Last I added lace paper tape along the bottom as my grass. Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
If you haven't noticed I have completely fallen in LOVE with the Fun Run collection. I'm just drawn to all the bright, fun colors in the line. My cousin talked me into doing a race this year, actually my first ever race. I've never done anything before, not even a 5K and we signed up to do a 10K. I trained hard and was super excited, but then ended up tweaking my knee two days before. I was totally bummed out, but I wasn't going to let that stop me, so I went ahead and did the race anyways. I am sooo glad I did, it was such an amazing experience, and I got a cool medal too.
I LOVED the quote from the cutouts paper and decided to add it and cut it up and have it as the main focus of the page, since that is truly how I felt. I added my title around the 10K sticker:
I also fussy cut part of the banner on the running girl cut out, and layered it over the paper, along with adding some arrow sticker accents:
So if there's something you've never done before and want to give a try, go for it!! Age shouldn't stop anyone from trying anything, its just a number.
Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!
