Winter Wonderland – dt layout for Sketchabilities sketch #108

Wow time goes by so fast! My term with Sketchabilities has come to a close, so this will be my last layout based on their sketches as part of their dt. However, I’m sure I’ll be playing along with their gorgeous sketches as a participant in the future. 😀 For my last dt page, I decided to create a colorful, whimsical page using a Creative Embellishments snowflake bg stamp, some of their fantastic laser cut chipboard pieces and my favorite paper manufacturers, Webster’s Pages‘, papers, bling and embellies. My page was also inspired by the Frosty challenge #91 at scrapki-wyzwaniowo. Here’s what I came up with:

Love Birds and Young Love – 2 dt layouts for Creative Embellishments

It’s Thursday again, which means I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog. This week, I have two layouts to share. 😀

I’ve never had a signature style and like to play around and experiment a lot, so my pages range all the way from CAS to very grungy and mixed media. I also love to play around with different challenges and techniques, so I’m a fairly eclectic scrapper. Anyway, this week I’m sharing two very different pages with you that use the same paper collection. For both pages, I used Webster’s Pages In Love papers. They had a bunch of challenges running this last week and I wanted to play along with them. 😀 As a matter of fact, the layout I shared last Thursday won Day 1 of their challenges! 😀

For this first page, I combined a sketch from Stuck on U Sketches (Nicolle, the owner of Creative Embellishments is on their dt) with the Webster’s Pages Scrap Your Stash Day 4 challenge – Use something metallic. I altered my chippies with Design Memory Craft Pitt markers in several different colors including silver. Here’s what I came up with:

Love Birds

For this second page, I took a much cleaner, straight forward approach for the WP Scrap Your Stash Day 5 – sketch challenge. I splattered several shades of shimmer mist onto my page w/the black background, making sure that the wood veneers that were on either side of my title got ample color to them. Here’s how it turned out:

Young Love

I decided to share both pages on the CE blog today to show how versatile Creative Embellishments products really are and how wonderfully they work with any style you can imagine! 😀

Materials:

Creative Embellishments Love Birds chipboard set
CE Showered With Love border
CE conversation hearts wood veneers
CE Hearts, Bows and Arrows Wood Veneers
Webster’s Pages In Love pp, fabric ticket, clips, bloomers, charms, lace, alphas
Lindy’s Stamp Starburst Mists
I am Roses flowers
Design Memory Crafts Pitt Artists Markers
Distress Ink

Create – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

It’s Thursday, so I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout to share. 😀 CE is sponsoring the Stuck?! Sketches January 15th challenge, so I decided to play along. Webster’s Pages has also had a different challenge posted each day this week on their blog, so I combined their day 1 challenge (monochromatic) with the Stuck?! sketch. 😀

For my take on the challenges, I decided to go with a pic of 3 of my kids coloring, drawing, cutting and pasting. They love to create and tend to do something artistic every day. The Creative Embellishments Create set was perfect for what I wanted to portray and the steampunk light bulbs helped illustrate their innovative, creative ideas. Here’s what I came up with:

Create

Materials:

Creative Embellishments Create set
CE Steampunk Light Bulbs
CE Conversation Hearts bg stamp
WP Western Romance pp, bloomers, sparkler, whimsy heart and bow
gesso
gelatos
Pitt big brush artist markers
acrylic paint
white sharpie

Movie Night – dt layout for SWAT drill #24

SWAT’s drill #24 (sketch plus buttons) is now live! For my example I decided to go with pics of my 2 oldest sons, Taten and Alex, from when we went to the movies to see the second Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire, for Taten’s birthday. It’s really hard to get a serious photo of my silly 14 year old. He’s faster than my flash and I can rarely get the photo before he strikes an…interesting…pose. lol I managed to get one out of the two without him hamming it up. 😀 Here’s what I came up with (sorry for the blurry pic of my layout. I have really bad indoor lighting and it was taken at night):

Movie Night

Materials:

Creative Embellishments Movie Night laser cut chipboard set
Graphic 45 pp
gesso
acrylic paint
white sharpie marker
white ink pen
October Afternoon buttons

Sketch for drill #24 (must add buttons for the challenge):
