Jewel Thief (SOS)

Welcome to the LAST book cover challenge for 2016 over at Scrap Our Stash.  I have had a great time working with these challenges over the last year since they always seemed to get my mojo flowing.  I will admit some of them seemed to stump me at first, but it always led me to be inspired by it in some sort of fashion.

This book cover had me scratching my head on what to create.  It seemed obvious to make a Christmas page, but last year I decided I wanted to be an active participant and not just behind the camera.  The result of that is that I have almost no Christmas pictures and the ones I did take have already been scrapped.  I decided to take my inspiration from the title and more importantly the word STOLE.  So that is what inspired to create this page of my niece wearing ALL of the dress-up jewelry while visiting her grandparents.  I took a 6x6 pad and cut several pages in half so that I had 8 triangles.  I then laid them out so that the picture would be in the middle.  I used striped paper and then used sequins to create a rough circle around my photo and title.

 We R Memory Keepers has a boy/outdoor line called “High Five” that can be found in the November Flavors of the Month Kit, the November Patterned Paper Add-On Kit and the November/December Shots of Life Kit. I combined the papers in the Patterned Paper Add-On kit and my left over cards and embellishments from the Shots of Life Kit to create this page.  Instead of using three photos, I decided to use one of the 3x4 cards.  I added some washi tape from my stash and some homemade enamel dots to finish off the page.

 I love bright and colorful scrapbooking supplies and this line from Jillibean Soup did not disappoint.  Parts of the Chit Chat Chowder line can be found in the November Flavors of the Month Kit, the November Patterned Paper Add-On Kit and the November/December Shots of Life Kit.  I combined the Patterned Paper Add-On Kit and the Shots of Life Kit to create this page.  To soften the grid feel of this page I added some of the stickers from the sticker sheet and used foam adhesive behind them to create more dimension.  I finished off this page with some washi from my stash and some enamel dots that I made.  You can see my tutorial here.

 The November Patterned Paper Add-On Kit and the November/December Shots of Life Kit include goodies from the newest American Crafts line by Shimelle called “Go Now Go”. I was super excited to see that these were included in the kits because I have been dying to get my hands on it.  When I first saw this 12x12 sheet of paper with the “washi” style print I knew that it would make a fabulous background for a layout.  I then added some of the cut-apart sheets from the Shots of Life Kit to make a large block of patterns around my photo.  I finished off my page with some gold letters for my title and some bling from my stash.

The November Doubleshot Kit features this totally awesome boy line from Bella Blvd called “Alex”.  This line is perfect for teenage boys and features bright colors and graphic patterns.  I decided to use the Freaky Fast Friday (FFF) challenge on this page.  After I cut out all of my pieces I really struggled for a while to get it the different pieces to work together.  I decided that layering was the key here and I used the same pattern more than once to help limit the number of busy patterns I had on this page.  I then added some of the stickers and die cuts from the page kit before finishing it off with some wood stars, twine, title letters and enamel dots from my stash.

Mine (Scrap Our Stash)

November is here, Thanksgiving is just around the corner with Christmas just right after that.  Scrap Our Stash is back with a new sketch + challenge.  I hope this fun sketch will inspire you to get scrapping!

I stayed really close to this sketch because everything just came together after I picked out my photos.  I did add an extra embellishment cluster by my title to balance it all out.  As for the list items, I included Grey, Harvest Gold & an Index Card (tag).  I wasn't sure about including both grey and gold on my page, but the additional colors really help to pull it all together.  I hope you will join us at Scrap Our Stash this month!

The colors in the “High Five” line by We R Memory Keepers and the travel feel made this line perfect to create this two page pocket spread about a summer day trip we took.  I only used the one cut-apart sheet to create this two page spread and even had cards left over to create a regular scrapbook layout too.  Also in the Shots of Life Kit are these cute puffy stickers.

I couldn’t wait to dig into the “Go Now Go” goodies from American Crafts by Shimelle to create this pocket page.  The November/December Shots of Life kit comes with two cut-apart sheets and some die cuts from this collection.  When I create a pocket page like this one, I first pick out my pictures and put them in the pockets. Next I cut the sheets apart into cards and pick which ones I want to use.  I always add a title card and journaling card first, and then I fill in any other openings.  I picked the card on the right side and then picked out two of the die cuts and layered them to add more visual interest to the card.  Lastly, I added the title to the 4x6 card using letters from my stash.

It is the time of year when there several theme type of collections on the market.  Sometimes this can be frustrating if you don’t have the typical fall with an abundance of fall themed photos to use.  Instead, just think of it as an excuse to think outside of the box. The colors in this line looked great with these pictures I have from a trip to the Grand Canyon 15 years ago.  This month I used this “Falling Leaves” collection from PhotoPlay to create this two page layout.  Remember Doubleshot Kit subscribers now get a recipe to create a two-page layout with each page kit.  I added some title letters, enamel dots and the journaling card from my stash to finish off this page.
