The Love of Football – Creative Embellishments and CSI case 169

I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog and this month, we’re one of the sponsors for CSI – Color Stories Inspiration, so we got to try our hands at cracking some of their cases! Here’s how I solved case 169:

The Love of Football

 

From the evidence column, I went with stars using our Stars in My Universe frame, then stencils and sunburst rays, by creating my own stencil for the background. From the testimony column, I went with the family fun theme and used the word family in my journaling.

Some close ups of the chippies I altered:

Hi everyone! I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout to share. 😀 This pic was taken almost 2 years ago and captures a little ritual that would happen several times a day, every day. Over and over again, Christian would say…Pound? Five? Hug? Kiss?…then all over again. 😀 Here he is slouched on the couch just like Daddy. 😀

Time Flies – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout of my youngest son to share. For this page, I’ve combined several of the FABULOUS CE 6×6 panels. I just love cutting bits here and there and using them as layering elements. I used paints to alter most of the chippies on my page, but left the mesh panel bare since I wanted to incorporate a variety of neutrals to offset my vibrant bg paper and the bold colors for the chevrons and frames.

I’ve also combined 2 challenges as inspiration for my layout. The sketch and title are for the Scrap and Music challenge #23 (Someone Like You) and the I added the magic and wonder theme from 7 dots studio. Hope you like what I came up with!

#Cute Smile – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! It’s Thursday, so I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout to share. This week I went with a few older pics of Madison and Matthew. I’ve already used the best photos from this sitting, so these were ones that were more flattering photos of Matthew. They really show off his sweet smile with his cutie dimples. Somehow, he’s my only kiddo with those deep dimples…not sure how that happened, but I think they’re adorable. 😀

To create my background, I used 3 CE stamps. I started out by stamping the script stamp and the heart shape stamp with Stazon ink, then used embossing ink with the Love Heart stamp and heat embossed using Lindy’s Stamp Gang EP. I used several Prima stencils with chalk ink and Shimmerz Texturez to complete my background.

I decided to finish off my page with some awesome CE wood veneers and a couple of social hashtag words for my title. I was also inspired by CSI-Color Stories Inspiration S365-4 challenge and the Skissedilla sketch #232. Here’s how it turned out:

Here’s a close up of the heart layered on the photos (this piece is from my favorite wood veneer set!). Sorry for the blurry pic. Lately, I’ve had to take a lot of indoor nighttime pics which doesn’t work well for me.
