My Accident Prone Girl (SOS)

When I first saw this sketch over at Scrap Our Stash, I was drawn to all the various strips of paper weaved behind the photo. I have been trying to use more scraps lately so this layout was perfect to dig through some scraps to find some to use. I also changed the picture size to work with my 4x6 photo. This change also meant that I cut all my strips wider than the sketch and also over lapped the patterned paper pieces more. After adding a few clusters of sequins I realized that I had the start of a circle, so I ended up with a large rough circle of sequins around my photo, which I just love.

For the bingo part of the challenge I ended up going with the second row on the board which includes: Brad, Doily, Circles, Sequins & Burlap. Those items seem to account for the majority of my embellishments, which really worked for me on this page.

Missing You (Stuck?! Sketches)

How is it already the middle of November?  This year is seriously flying by and I am excited to share a new layout with Stuck?! Sketches.

We welcome another two great sponsors that are once again offering up some great prizes.  7 Dots Studio is offering up a $20 gift certificate and Freckled Fawn is giving away a $15 gift certificate.

Laura has once again outdone herself with this new sketch.  I love this one photo sketch because sometimes one photo is all I have to use on a layout.

Stuck 11-15

I really stuck close to the sketch on this page, except for I used a more horizontal photo than a square photo.  Once again we are teaming up with Scrap It with a Song for their new challenge.  This time it is “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin.  Earlier this year I went through a big box of childhood photos and pulled some out to scrap and after hearing about the song challenge I found this photo of myself when I was young with my grandmother.  We lost her several years ago and I feel so lucky that I have this photo of us from a long time ago.

Hanging with U (SOS)


I loved this new word challenge over at Scrap Our Stash, at least until I came to the letter “U”. After lots of thinking about what I could use, especially since I had already picked out my pictures, I finally figured out what to use for “U”  I had so much fun creating this page. I love the look of hand-stitching but I seem to always forget about doing it until the page is done and I then don’t want to spend the time on it. It really seems to bring this page together and the extra texture it adds is a favorite of mine.

A - American Crafts, Ampersand

L- Layering, Lined Paper, Little B, Little Letters

B- Black, Bazzill, Black Ink

U- Uniball Pen, “U” (in my title)

M- Mist, Mustaches, Making Memories, Me & My Big Ideas

S- Sequins, Simple Stories, Stars, Studio Calico, Stripes

SOS 11-1 Hanging with U

Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill. Patterned Paper: American Crafts Dear Lizzy. Spray Ink: Heidi Swapp. Pen: Uniball. Stickers: Making Memories. Teresa Collins, Simple Stories, Crate Paper. Washi Tape: Queen & Company, Recollections, Little B. Embellishments: Stash, Studio Calico, Paper Issues.

What’s up my Buttercup? (Picture This)

Is it really November already?!?  On the upside that means that there are new challenges to play along with.  So I hope you will come check out what the design team created and play along too.

So try to Picture This… SCRAPS + DIE CUTS + BUTTONS

I keep my scraps in plastic drawers so I just grabbed the drawer of recent scraps and got started with this page.  I also tried to keep the papers the size they were with minimal cutting to create my photo mats.

3,2,1…Splash Down (Stuck?! Sketches)

It is the beginning of a new month and a new challenge is up over at Stuck?! Sketches.  This challenge has two fabulous sponsors and they are offering up some great prizes!

Both of them are offering up prize packs.

Laura has created this fun two photo sketch that once again has lots of layers.  I really love how she layers all of her sketches.

Stuck 11-1

I really kept this layout close to the sketch, except I changed it up and used three photos instead of two.  With all of the fun layers I dug through my scrap drawers to pull together various pieces of scraps that work with the colors in my photos.

This month we are teaming up with Scrap it with a Song challenge site.  So the new challenge is “Octopus’s Garden” by the Beatles.  So I listened to the song and looked up the lyrics and then flipped through my printed photos.  When I found these pictures from our trip to a water park this last summer, I knew they would be perfect.  We didn’t encounter any wildlife, but it was impossible to get my daughter out of the water during our visit!

SOS–I Am….

For this challenge at Scrap Our Stash we had a use the sketch and add metal to the layout. I moved all of the elements of the sketch lower on the page, so that the pictures are on the bottom of the page. I also changed up the sketch to use five photos instead of three because I couldn’t decide which pictures of my daughter to use on the page. This cute little metal geo-tag was the perfect color compliment to my page and I added a cute enamel dot to the middle to finish it off.

SOS 10-15 I Am....

Supplies - Patterned Paper: Teresa Collins, Jen Hadfield. Doily: Stash, Doodlebug. Ink: Tim Holtz. Letters: My Mind’s Eye & American Crafts. Embellishments: My Mind’s Eye, Doodlebug, Queen & Company, Heidi Swapp.
