Designers Challenge

Week 3...Orange Crush
Scrap about what you have/had a crush on. I took crush literally and scrapped these pics from Valentine's day. We had to use this hideous orange felt. The only paper I had to match was from Halloween. So, I punched out some flowers; I tried to make it not look like Halloween. We also had to use those washer rivets. I have to admit it was fun to bust out the rivet setters and bang on something! Thank you for your inspiration!

Be Mine

Well I didn't copy this LO from anywhere, but I am pretty sure I have seen the basic design before. I went the easy route. My brain hasn't been very creative since my buddy left. And, I can't get inspired by other's ideas. I am in kinda of a croppn' rut. Good thing I am going to Utah this weekend!

All You Need Is Love

Got my Studio 8 Paper...LOVE IT! Stole the idea for the button heart from a store. Designed the rest on my own. Used the glitter glue again to make LOVE sparkle. I am in love with buttons all over again.

Here is what I did this weekend. Another layout for the Hawaii book. I used that crazy paper packet. Since it was Sunday and I didn't buy cardstock to match yet, I had to get creative. I used the scenic route rub ons...they will come in handy. I see we used the same flowers from quickutz this was almost like we were together :o)

The other one

Here is the other pic you wanted Maegen. It's not the greatest but the best we could do! Our lovely yellow living room!

Presenting the new....

Studio 8 paper! I can't wait until you can put some up. Thanks for all the scraplifting help! I scrapped this weekend with my mom and sister and so I thought I would work on Studio 8 gallery layouts with the newest paper from them. Boy do I love it. The first three layouts are with the Blooming Collection and the last is from Daydream. Don't worry though I am saving the star papers all for you!

Designers Challenge

I am doing a Designer's Challenge for the scrapbook store near me. Each week they give you a packet of supplies you have to use and a theme to follow.

Week one was a white sheet of cardstock, blue pen, acrylic photo corners and a journal box to fill in questions about my favorite things. Well, the journal box was like 6x6 and my lo was 9x9 so I cut apart the journal box and glued it pretty much all over the place. The LO was lacking in a neutral color, so I used my handy crayon to color the white cardstock. It ended up being a pretty cool texture, even if it does look like a mess. I am not too happy about how it turned out, but it is done and I got my first point.

Week two was all about red and love songs. We had to use this red glitter glue. I was a little nervous at first, but then decided to copy Making Memories glitter chipboard and colored in my letters with the glitter glue. I have to say it looks pretty fabulous! I am quite proud of this LO.

Scrapbook Sleepover

It was fun to have my scrapbook buddy come for the weekend. We got FIVE layouts done in 10 hours. Pretty good average I'd have to say. Maybe Jenn will post hers'. We basically did the same LO with different pictures and papers. Easier that way.

This Otta Keep You Busy...

Here are the Layouts you requested madame.

Same Pictures 2 Layouts

Here are the two LOs I did from our winter day trip to Tahoe National Forest. One is for Carter's book and one is for my book. Why is Basic Grey so hard to scrapbook with? It is almost like they need their own solid cardstock because Bazzill just doesn't quite match right. Both LOs are my own design...I am getting better at that.

I glittered the snowman chipboard cut out...turned out cute

The background is KI Winter Wonderland from the 10 cent sale. I bought it because the back is cream, but the winter wonderland brownish gray actually matched my paper.

Look familiar? I finally put together the page packet my sister in law designed. I had to do some changes though...needed more picture space and a place to journal. I thought the little squares looked like presents. So, I decided to give them bows. It probably looks dumb, but it makes me laugh.


Dec. 25th

OK now I am really sick of this Scenic Christmas Paper. I am so glad that this is my last LO using it! I designed this LO on my own. Yeah me! The word strip says "merry christmas to all and to all a good night"
