Today Fun! (Mye De Leon)

I want to start this post off by saying that I usually use a sketch when I sit down to start a layout.  Mostly my layouts end up pretty varied from the sketch, but it gives my brain a direction to go.  I am bringing this up, because for all of these hybrid layouts I have been just printing the paper out in various sizes and then layering them together to start my layout.  This whole new process for me has taken me by surprise.  I guess this break from scrapbooking that I took due to our move has really been a good thing for my creativity.

I love the variety of elements that Mye De Leon puts into her collections.  There are word & saying strips, flowers, journal cards, wood letters and elements just to name a few.  It is like going through my whole stash to pull embellishments together, but Mye has them in one spot and they all look fabulous together! It has made for some speedy scrapbooking lately.

Today Fun!

Little Swimmer (Inspired Blueprints #107)

I love Fridays, and this one is no exception!  Today is when the new sketches are released over at Inspired Blueprints.  I love how this layout quickly came together.  This was my first traditional paper layout after the move and it caused me to do some re-arranging in my space, but that is to be expected as I start creating more.

I hope that you will head over to the Inspired Blueprints blog and see what the rest of the Design Team has created!  Make sure to play along with this week’s sketch for your chance to win a prize!

Us. (Mye De Leon)

I promised you that I was on a scrappy roll and getting caught up with past releases from Mye De Leon.  I really loved this collection!  Between the papers, elements, journal cards, alphas and more there was way more than I could ever use on one project.

Live, Love, Laugh Today (Mye De Leon)

Last Friday Mye De Leon release a new kit called The Good Stuff: This Month.  This is the third part of this series (the others were This Week and Today).  When I first saw this color palette I fell in love with it.  I have noticed that I really seem to be drawn to the color teal lately.  I seem to find a way to work it into almost all of my layouts.

Joy Everyday (Mye De Leon)

Over the last couple of months Mye De Leon has released a bunch of really fabulous kits.  I was sad that I missed using them when they were first released, so I have been catching up with them over the last week.  I have been really loving making paper layouts with Mye’s digital kits.  I using my regular letter sized printer and either cut things out by hand (paper) or using my Silhouette to trace the elements and cut them out.  Here is the second layout I have done recently this way.

Joy in Everyday

I wanted to post a close up view of this layout to show the depth between the different elements.  I end up using quite a few foam dots to give certain elements little pops.  This is a great way to keep your layouts from feeling flat.

I used Mye De Leon’s Felicity Paper, Elements & Smears.The kraft cardstock is from Oriental Trading.  The trim reminded me of the purple ribbon in the Elements kits, but this was left over from a sewing project.  It is actually elastic that I bought at Jo-Ann’s.  I based this layout on a sketch from Dianna.

Today (Inspired Blueprints sketch #106)

I have been busy scrapbooking again for the last several days.  I wasn’t sure how it would feel to sit down and scrap again, but I have to say that I have pretty amazed at how quickly these layouts have been coming together.  I honestly thought that I would sit down at my desk to create and my creativity wouldn’t be there.

I am happy to be working with the new group of designers at Inspired Blueprints.  Today they have a fabulous new sketch up.  I hope you will come by and check it out.  Make sure to play along for your chance to win!

Today- A Simply Wonderful Day

I stayed pretty true to the sketch.  I moved the center detail to the left side of the pictures.  I also added the flags and doily.

Supplies: Patterned Paper - Echo Park.  Spray Ink - Heidi Swapp.  Embellishements: Wood Veneers – Studio Calico.  Bling – Queen & Company. Giant Rhinestone – Glitz. Washi tape – Recollections & My Mind’s Eye.  Flair – Fancy Pants Designs.

Cold Treat (Mye De Leon)

This is my very first layout after our move.  Mye De Leon released this fabulous kit called Autumn Dream last week and I sat right down and made this hybrid layout.  I was so happy at how this page came together and it sure got me in the mood to scrap more!
