Lets Scrap 3-27-13

I can't believe how quickly this DT term has gone. This is my last official layout of the term. Although we will be staying on the next couple of weeks until the new team is settled in.


This week's sketch is perfect for capturing holidays and events because of the amount of small photos. I used it for this years Valentines Day. I had a lot of fun making heart shaped food and goodies for my family.

I used black card stock for the main background for the layout. On top of that I layered white card stock that I stamped red hearts and pink lines. I used a left over toilet paper roll and Studio G ink to create the design. I thought the sheer burgundy ribbon framed the stamped card stock perfectly.

The monkey cut out and title were cut on the Cricut using the create a critter 2 cartridge. I used the monkey and gray paper to add a little masculinity to the layout. The woven squares I made using Eniko's tutorial #33 over at Let's Scrap.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see your layout this week in the Gallery.

Let's Scrap 3-13-13

It's Wednesday and time to reveal the latest sketch from Let's Scrap. This might be one of my favorite sketches from this DT term. It worked perfectly for the pictures from a recent trip to visit my mom and step dad. Tiny Human loved spending time with his Nana and Grandpa.Grandpa was a good sport and spent a lot of time coloring with him. Plus they have all kinds of fun toys to play with.

I flipped the 4X6 photo to be horizontal. All of the papers are Colorbok, that I picked up at Wal-mart. The red ribbon along the bottom strip is from my stash. The sunflower stickers and quotes were given to me from my mom, she had duplicates. I love that we share the love of scrapbooking, because it often means I get her left overs.

I wanted to keep the colors simple and neutral. I settled on using red,tan and brown. The title is from the Cricut Basic Font cartridge. The quote around the sunflower says, " Happiness is meant to be shared." The photo is matted with red and tan card stock.

For some reason my camera didn't get much love during the trip. I only had a few pictures to use. For the second page instead of several small photos I used 3 larger photos and strips of red card stock. The photos are matted on tan card stock.  The quote says, " A special heartfelt memory meant to last for ages, will always become new again when found within these pages."

Thanks for checking out this layout. Hope you come play along with us at Let's Scrap.

Caradabilities #70


We recently had my son's 2nd Birthday party. And of course he is spoiled rotten :) and received lots of gifts. That means Mommy needs to get busy and make some "Thank You" cards. The card I want to share with you today was inspired by Caradablilities sketch#70.

All the paper I used were scraps from my stash. The stamped image is a stamp from Studio G. I used purple glitter glue to decorate the blue circle and the top of the banner.

 I used the same turquoise and the flower paper in the inside of the card.
Thanks for taking a look at my newest card. Have a great day!

DT challenge 157

I'm so excited to be hosting my first DT challenge over at Let's Scrap. You can check it out here. The challenge was inspired by my love of St. Patricks Day. The rules are:

1)Create a layout using a Let's Scrap Card sketch. (Extra entry if you make a card from the same sketch)

2) Use at least 1 shade of green.

3) The word Luck must be used in your title and sentiment.

4) Add some sparkle! You can use glitter,rhinestones or anything that shines!

5) Include at least 1 piece of ribbon.

This is the sketch I used:

The picture I used in the layout is one my cousin took of me and my boys the Christmas before last. It was such a beautiful day and perfect for outdoor photos.
The bird stamp is part of recent purchase from the local dollar store. They always have fun scrapping supplies. In the branch I wrote "Lucky in Love".  The flower embellishment I made using 6 cicles left over from a previous project.

Here is the card i made:
There is sparkly ribbon behind the sentiment. The shamrocks are from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge. I added some sparkle to the one in the middle.
