CS Sketch 241

It's not my normal week to post for Creative Scrappers, but Kristine's Sketch #241 was a special looks just like the new Creative Scrappers Logo, so she asked us all to participate in this week's reveal.  Take a peek at the's such a fun one!

And here's my version...I used some Lily Bee Persnickety Papers...I LOVE the patterns and colors..they're so much fun. I also used some Mr. Huey's sprays to spatter the background.  I thought they went perfectly with this silly photo of my daughter listening to the new One Direction Release...she spent the entire day with at least one ear bud in...

I used another one of my Evalicious badges...I can't get enough of them!  I also used some MFT Die namics for the sun, stars and circles.

I created a hidden journaling pocket to hold one of the Index Journaling cards from the Persnickety Collection.

Make sure to stop by the Creative Scrapper's Blog to check out the wonderful creations by the DT.  Well, that's it for today...and this will be my last post of 2012.  I hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year!

Creative Scrappers #240

I can't believe Christmas is in two days.... At this point I'm just hoping I didn't forget anything!  Just in time for the Holiday, I did a Christmas themed layout using Sketch 240 by Nicole Nowosad from Creative Scrappers.  Here's the sketch:

And here's my take on the sketch using the Lily Bee Christmas Cheer Collection.

I tilted the sketch to the right and used one picture instead of two, but otherwise, I stuck with the general layout.

I got to use another one of my Evalicious badge buttons...I just can't get enough of these and I found a Chevron Whimsy button in my stash that coordinated perfectly with the red chevron paper.

In place of the pie chart circles on the sketch, I used some MFT Christmas Ornament Die namics to create some hanging ornaments.

Make sure to stop by the Creative Scrapper's Blog to see the wonderful creations the team has put together.  I'll be back next week with another Creative Scrapper's's a special one! I'm off to celebrate Christmas and New Year's with friends and family.  I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday season!

I almost forgot to post this layout I did for the MFT Fan Club over at Right at Home Scrapbooking.  We got to play with some festive papers from BasicGrey and the new Poinsettia MFT Die namic.

I love this picture from 2005 of my niece reading the Christmas Story to my daughter.  Just too cute!

In addition to the Poinsettia Die namic, I used the Journal-it Calendar Basics stamps to create a little calendar embellishment.


I'll be back Sunday with a layout for Creative Scrappers!

Pat's Fans

Just in time for the Patriots/SF game this weekend, I thought I'd show a little team spirit!!!  We have a lot of rabid Pats Fans in our neighborhood, so you know if there's a big game, there's a party!  This picture of all the neighborhood kiddo's sporting their Pat's gear is from one of those parties last year!
I used paper and stickers from Authentique's Original Collection and Sketch 225 from Creative Scrappers.  I added some red Bo Bunny Ledger paper to cover all the team's colors.

I love Authentique's stickers...they always have great words to go along with their papers.  The stars were cut using the Star Stax MFT Die namics.

I created a stick pin using a Maya Road Bingo number and added a little Twinery Twine to dress it up.   That's it for to try to recreate my address list (sadly lost when my laptop died last May...)  so I can send out my Christmas cards!

December Layout Workshop

Hi Everyone,
Two posts in two days... it's been a busy week!  I'm here today with a peek at the project we'll be creating at this month's Layout Workshop at Right at Home Scrapbooking.  I had a lot of fun with this one, using some Studio Calico Yearbook papers and tons of dies and stamps.

LOVE these silly pics of my daughter and friend with their giraffe and zebra hats.  I tried to keep the layout whimsical to keep in line with the photos.  I LOVE my new Polaroid frame die from Li'l Inker Designs, it's perfect for the "selfies" my daughter always takes!  I used a bunch of MFT Die namics including the arrows from the Lead the Way set, the speech bubble die and stamp from "Say What" and the photo corners and tabs.

I also used a couple of stamps from the Hero Arts/Studio Calico Oh Snap collection.

If you're local and interested in joining the Layout Workshop at Right at Home Scrapbooking, please call the store for details. (508)695-9290.

Creative Scrappers Sketch #238

Hi Everyone, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!  I'm back today with Creative Scrappers Sketch #238 by Juliana Michaels.  This was such a fun sketch to work with!  As soon as I saw it, I knew what I was going to create!  Here's the sketch:

And here's my version.  I tipped the sketch sideways and instead of a sunburst, I created a Union Jack flag.  My daughter has this thing for guys with British accents (we're in trouble...), I blame it on One Direction.  She HAD to have these jeans as soon as she saw them, and as you can see, she was happy to show them off!

I used papers and stickers from Jillibean Soup's Soup Staples 2.  I LOVE the patterns and colors.  They made the perfect foundation for my picture.  I used some MFT Die namics to cut the flag and photo corner pieces.  My favorite parts of the layout are the ADORABLE Union Jack Buttons created by the uber talented and super sweet Stephanie Hart from My Little Bit of Whimsy.  They totally "make" my layout!

That's it for today...make sure to stop by the Creative Scrappers Blog to check out all of the gorgeous creations from the team!
