Scrapbooking Again

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today to share a scrapbook page I created using Altenew’s Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

Would you believe me if I told you I started crafting by creating scrapbook pages for my son.  I stopped a long time ago. I was introduced to some may different types of crafts that I slowly walked away from scrapbooking.

Last year, I started scrapbooking again by doing pocket pages.  Those are easy and fun but I missed the actually scrapbook page that I use to create.  So I decided to try my hand at it again.

Lets take a look:

I recently visited my nephew’s and had a blast with them.  My youngest nephew is 5 years old and he is quite the explorer.  He loves nature and everything it has to offer.  We went out to eat and while waiting to be seated he spotted a tree outside and he had to climb it.

I was so happy that my camera was ready.  I captured him looking out beyond the leaves and knew this would be a perfect shot.

Altenew is running their second sketch challenge and I figured I could join in on the fun.

Take a look at the sketch:

To create my page, I used my Brother ScanNCut Canvas online to create a heart.  I downloaded it to the ScanNCut and used it to cut out the heart from one of Altenew Scrapbook pages.

Then I adhered the heart to the white background using Tombow Permanent Mono adhesive.  I added dash lines around the heart to add dimension.

After that I picked out different embellishments to go with the theme of my page.  I placed them according to the sketch.

Let take a closer look:

I love how the embellishments are all color coordinated.

Adding thread, adds an extra layer of texture to this layout.  Super simple but effective.

So what do you think?  Did I follow the sketch? I would love to hear from you.

For this challenge, shape cards were in order.  I love making cards that are odd shaped from time to time. For the sparkle and shine I foiled the sentiment and adhered it to the card front.  Super doper easy!!

These cards could be turned into tags as well.  Just punch a hole and write on the inside of the tag.

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

{Clean and Simple} CASology 214 – Beach

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Week 214 - Beach

Take a look at my card:

Hello Friend (CAS)

I have I told you how much I do not like the fall or winter!  I hate being cold and to see the summer end is killing me.  I love how we are using this cue card now!  The weather is changing and its no longer 90 degrees outside.  So going to the beach is about to be in our distant memory.

When I sat down to create my card, I immediately thought of So Suzy Stamps new release. The Beach Grass stamp to be exact!! This stamp set is just perfect for this week’s challenge.

I love how the grass gives the feeling of motion, the nice ocean breeze.  Oh when I close my eyes, I can feel it!  Can you?

Creating this card was easy as 1-2-3!

  • I used a A2 (4.25×5.50) size card base to start with.
  • Then I used the Mini Misti to stamp the Beach Grass stamp set across the front of the card in black.
  • After that I used Concord & 9th Flourish stamp set to stamp the sentiment.
  • Last but not least, I rounded the top right corner for added interest.

Nice and easy, I must say.  I love how the black and white keeps the card elegant.  Concord & 9th sentiment font is so fitting for this card as well.

Are you inspired to play along?  Please let me know below!

Guest Designer: Sparkle and Shine Challenge Part 2

Hello everyone!! I’m back again today with the Sparkle and Shine Challenge as the Guest Designer for the month.

Here is the photo inspiration that I used to create my card:

Sparkle and Shine

Take a look at my card:

Happiest of Holiday (S&S)

I have to say I struggle with this photo inspiration this time around.  At first I played with all of the colors in the photo and my daughter said no.  The colors were to dull.  So I decided to go with just two of the colors.

I stamped My Favorite Things Santa’s Elves tree and fussy cut them out.  Then I adhered them to my card front.  After that I added some sequin as ornaments on the tree.  Then I stamped the sentiment and I was done!!

Super easy!

So what do you think?  Please let me know.

This challenge runs for two weeks. You have until December 28, 2015 at 11:55pm to enter for a chance to win a super awesome prize!!
