High Flying Fun

Challenge 48 on Color Me Scrappy brings you a great color scheme and a unique twist--use feathers on a layout. I chose to use feather rub-ons from Jenni Bowlin.

Here's the color challenge:
and my layout:

To carry the theme of the feathers, I chose bird and flying elements to go with my pics. Thanks for stopping by. You have until the end of the month to complete the challenge!

Happy Family--Christmas Layout

This weekend I got productive! This 2 pager satisfies three separate blog challenges! Page 1 uses a sketch on Paper Bakery, and Page 2 uses a sketch from Creating Keepsakes. I also used embellishments from my stash for the Tic Tac Toe challenge on Scrap Our Stash! For that challenge, I used washi tape, decorate pins and twine.

Here are the sketches used:

 And the Tic Tac Toe game: I went with diagonal from top left.
And here is my resulting 2 pager! Supplies used: Studio Calico cs and pp, American Crafts pp, Studio Calico letters, We R Memory Makers photo frame/title and die cuts, Maya Road pins, Queen & Co dots and twine, Freckled Fawn star stickers, Recollections washi tape, Staz-on ink, 2 inch circle punch, scallop circle punch.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope this inspires you to see what you can combine to save time and feel creative!

Boo Project

Halloween time! I look forward to seeing all the little kids dressed up and trick or treating. To get in the spirit, my friend and I went to a craft party and made these signs. I chose to use orange paint for the background with a black wispy border, and my friend used white letters on black paint.

Hope your Halloween is boo-tifully crafty!

Play Ball: Paper Secrets sketch challenge

On Paper Secrets, there is a great sketch challenge and it includes a twist--use dots and stripes. Yesterday was opening day for JJ's Miracle League Baseball, so I had fresh pics that were inspiring me! I had a great stash of "baseball" theme papers from SEI and Best Creations to use on this layout. I added a dotted banner that I think is BG.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my layout:
I rearranged the placements of the photos and paper strips, and I altered the circle element to be my title. I really like how it turned out. I used a piece of heidi swapp color me paper with Ranger Dyslusions spray ink in lemon yellow. It really pops with color and shines! The camera flair was purchased at Paper Secrets!
