#Sweetheart – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

I’m back on the Creative Embellishments blog for Thursdays, so I have a layout to share. My youngest son is our wild child and little he does would be what we’d consider typical. Considering we’ve got 5 kids, that’s saying a lot. lol My little critter has been climbing onto the back of the couch since before he could walk. Even now, at 3 1/2, he likes to lay across the back of the couch when watching tv or just hanging out. He recently started reading, but he’s always enjoyed looking at his books as seen in these pics.

I was inspired by 2 challenges when creating my page. CSI-Color Stories Inspiration case file #109 and sketch 27.1 from Page Drafts. I’ve also used a script bg stamp that is not yet listed in the store, so keep your eye out for this beauty! 😀

Here’s what I came up with:

#LOVE – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

Hi, everyone! I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout to share…I know, I know…I’m normally on on Thursdays, but Nicolle was kind enough to switch days with me this week to give me an extra day due to personal issues. For my layout today, I decided to use more pics from the set I used on the Feb challenge example page. To alter my chippies I coated lightly with gesso and used chalk inks to cover and give them a blended distressed edge.

I was also inspired by case file #108 at CSI (Color Stories Inspiration), Heart Challenge at Flying Unicorn. Also based on sketch #2 from the Pagedrafts sketches.

I love the versatility of CE chipboard borders and panels. For this page, I ended up snipping apart both the Hearts Panel and the Love Knot Border to use across my page. Here’s what I came up with:

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
