IB #112: These are the Days

Welcome to another fabulous sketch release on the Inspired Blueprints blog.  Make sure to swing by to see what the amazing design team created.  Also, make sure you play along for a chance at the prize!

This week’s sketch is for 1 photo.  When I saw the sketch I knew what photo I wanted to use.  I also knew that with the bright pink in the photo this would be a great chance to use some of my bright summery papers.

These are the Days

I only made some slight changes when making this layout.  I added a larger title, so I moved it over.  I also added an extra strip of paper behind the photo for an extra little pop of yellow.

Welcome Home C-Max

This is one of those layouts that looks great, but is really on the more simplistic side.  I managed to fit so many pictures on this layout and I wanted the focus to be on the pictures, that I kept the embellishments to a minimum.  Another thing that I really like is all of the tone on tone parts of this layouts.  The color palette is all very neutral.

Time to Sell Cookies

Every time I work on a hybrid layout I end up printing and cutting extra elements that I can use on future pages.  On this layout I used several flowers from various Mye De Leon kits.  I love all the dimension that in these flowers and I add extra dimension by adding foam squares behind the flowers.  It really helps them to pop!

Touching the Atlantic Ocean

Earlier this month I went to the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention and picked up this adorable collection from Carta Bella called Hello Again.  I kept looking at it before I finally decided to get it and I am so happy that I did.  I love these colors and they look great with this photos!

Inspired Blueprints sketch 111

This week’s sketch over at Inspired Blueprints took me a little bit to figure out how I wanted to use it.  I had these three pictures waiting to be scrapbooked, but they didn’t exactly match the photo sizes on the sketch.  But no problem, because I used the sketch as a starting point and re-worked it some to better fit my pictures.

I hope you will head over to the Inspired Blueprints blog to see the fabulous inspiration from the design team.  Make sure to play along for your chance at this month’s prize.

Hungry like a Shark

I loved this paper by Fancy Pants when it first came out, but I hadn’t found pictures that would work with it until I got around to scrapping these.  I also was able to use lots of little goodies that have become some of my favorite go-to embellishments including wood veneers and enamel dots.

One thing I have been trying to make good use of lately is all of my alpha stickers that have been slowly accumulating over the last few years.  On this layout I managed to use three different alphas on this layout.

Fall Blog Hop Winner!!

Thank you to everyone who visiting my blog during the Fall Blog Hop! I loved reading everyone's comments.

According to, the lucky comment was #2...

Blogger Becky said...
What a fun idea!! That basket is so cute!! Where will you pit the leaves after people have written on them?
November 18, 2013 at 1:04 PM
 Becky, send me your email address and I will get your prize in the mail within the next week.

And to answer your question, I think we will put the leaves in a stack next to the basket and as people write on them we will add them to the basket.  Maybe after the holiday I will put together a little album of the filled in cards.

Welcome to the Fall Blog Hop

Congratulations!  You have almost reached the end of this blog hop.  I am sure you have seen some pretty amazingly inspiring fall projects so far.  I am excited to share my project with you.  You should have just come from Laurie’s Blog.  If not, then head over to Mandi’s blog to get started at the beginning.

I created my project using my Silhouette Cameo.  I used some cut files from their store to create this leaf basket and the leaves that are filling it.  I also used their sketch pens to add a sentiment to the leaves. 

Fall Blog Hop 1

I created this project to go on our Thanksgiving table.  I thought it would be so cute for people to write on the back of the leaves things that they are thankful for.

Fall Blog Hop 2

I have a little Webster’s Pages giveaway for a lucky visitor.


To be entered leave a comment here about what you love about Fall.  If you become a follower, leave an extra comment for a second chance to win.  I will pick a winner  on Wednesday, November 20th, 2013. Next up on the hop is Christy’s blog.  Thank you for visiting!

I love playing with the app called Instagram.  The only thing better is that I have been scrapping some of my favorites!  This week’s sketch from Inspired Blueprints works perfectly with the square sized photos.

Good Times Adorable Girl (Inspired Blueprints)

There is another fabulous sketch up at Inspired Blueprints.  I love that this one uses two 4x6 pictures.  When I saw these two adorable pictures of my daughter, I knew I wanted to use them!

I stayed pretty close to the sketch and and just added extra embellishments to make the sketch work for me.  I added extra dimension by using adhesive foam square to several of the embellishments.

Hungry Tourist

I have been having a blast creating single page layouts lately, but I now have enough pictures for certain layouts that means that I have several two page layouts in the works.

This layout was a lot of fun to create and I really enjoyed playing with my Silhouette for all of the cuts for this layout.  I am really getting a lot of joy out of all my recent scrapbooking time.
