Happy I have my Dad–JBS

Today there a two great Jenni Bowlin Studios digital kits on sale over at Snap Click Supply Co.  I used one of them on my hybrid layout.  I have really been loving the color and texture of canvas and burlap lately, so I wanted to do something a little different.  I took the circles and printed them onto canvas fabric and then cut them out by hand for this layout.

Here is a closer view of those circles:

Life is Perfect

There are two things I really love about creating this layout…it took me way less than an hour and I only used scraps on this page.  I really need to use up more of my scraps, so I grabbed a drawer and pulled out some scraps and just started putting them on the page and then added some faux stitching around each block.

Life is Perfect

Supplies: Paper and stickers from Echo Park…seriously, that’s it!

First Grade

I can’t believe that this was already a year ago already!! I only had two picture sizes left to choose from to scrapbook, either an 8x10 or this smaller 3.5x5.   I also saw this fun background pattern in my Silhouette library and knew that it would make a fun touch on this page.

Scrapbooker’s Blog Tour

My friend Devra invited me last week to join in on the Scrapbook Blog Tour.  This was the first time I had heard of this blog tour and I was excited to get a glimpse into her creative process since I just love her style! Last Monday she shared a great post and at the end nominated me to join in, so I am here to today to answer the same fun questions. 

1.What am I working on right now?

Right now I am working on a mix of home d├ęcor projects and design team projects.  I am loving the look of printed burlap, so I just had to give it a try but I have quickly become addicted to it!

2014-09-10 10.31.18

2. How long does it take me to create a project?

For a typical layout it can take me anywhere from under an hour to several hours depending on how quickly they come together and if I have to wait for things to be cut out on my silhouette or to dry from spray ink.  I sometimes will have a project on my desk for up to a week while waiting for inspiration and time to get it finished.

@ This Very Moment

3. What are my favorite things to create with at the moment?

My Silhouette Cameo, sequins, wood veneer, patterned paper with fun patterns, but nothing whimsy, spray ink, anything gold, laminated burlap sheets, washi tape.  Really everything in my space, since I purge frequently and have really discovered my own style I don’t keep things that I don’t like to use.

2014-09-12 11.23.21

4. How does my creating process work?

I start by grabbing my photos (which are sorted in page protectors in a standard binder, the pictures for each layout are in their own page protector).  I then pick out my paper products (patterned paper and cardstock).  Once the paper and cardstock and pictures are all done I start pulling out embellishments, add my journaling and title.

2014-09-11 12.02.25

5. How do I become inspired and stay inspired?

I love looking at color palettes and layouts on pinterest. I love building up my Silhouette library, so I am also inspired by new designs that I find. Scrapbook challenges are a great way to find my mojo and get started scrapping again. Lately, I am really inspired by creating things for my new home, so I have spent way too much time reading my HGTV magazines.

Happy Halloween

6. What is my signature style?

This for me is a question that seems impossible to answer.  I really just do what I like.  I like clean lines for my photos and patterned paper but I like to add fun with my embellishments.  Ink splatters on my layout seem to be something that I have been adding a lot of lately.

Smile Love

Now it is time for me to nominate a couple of scrapbookers.  I decided on these two ladies because I love their style and I am looking forward to a peak into their creative process next!

Happy Halloween layout

The current challenge at Child’s Play Challenges is all about sequins. As you can probably guess, that is right up my alley!  When I saw the newest challenge I of course had to add sequins to the next layout that I worked on. 

Once again, this is a layout about last Halloween and I went totally non-traditional on my color palette again.  However, I am thinking that I might need new fall colored patterned paper soon!

@ This Very Moment

I love all of the background pattern shapes in the Silhouette store and so I wanted to play around on this layout.  So after I cut out this shape I used some spray ink to create a fun but subtle background for my layout.

No Place Like Home

I can’t believe that Halloween is just a matter of weeks away!  I am finally up to scrapbooking pictures from last year when my daughter wanted to dress up as Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.

I don’t really have much Halloween paper, since I am not a theme scrapbooker,  so instead I managed to find other paper in my stash that had some Holloween feel to them, without all of the standard colors.

A Family Event

Even though this event was close to Halloween and involved pumpkins I didn’t want the overall layout to be all about the holiday.  So I cut out some cute pumpkins on my silhouette but I wanted a few of them to have a bigger statement, so I filled some with sequins.

Sleepy Dog

I have been loving the gold trend lately and this gold marbled paper from a Christmas collection from Recollections was perfect for the background to this page.  I have also been loving adding doilies to my pages, especially after I add some spray ink to them.
