Layout and a Card – Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss

About a month ago or so I won some of Bo Bunny’s new Barefoot and Bliss papers and their layered chipboard embellies. We’ve never taken the kids to the beach and I don’t have a single beach photo. However on the day we gave Christian his first sponge bath at home, he happened to be wearing a little romper that said “Beach Bum” on it and the colors seemed fairly appropriate, so I decided to use the BB for this layout. There was even a page that reminded me of bubbles, so I fussy cut and punched out some of the circles.

This layout is an example for the Paper Secrets July Sketch challenge. I rotated the sketch to better suit what I had in mind and here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss 12×12 cardstock papers
BB Barefoot and Bliss layered chipboard stickers
Pink Paislee alpha stickers

Adhesives:

Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar ZapDots

Then I used the scraps to create a card for my example for the PS July Card Sketch with a twist (the twist is that you must use a border punch). Here’s my take on the sketch:

Materials:

BB Barefoot and Bliss 12×12 cardstock papers
Twine from the Twinery

Adhesives:

Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry

Tool:

Martha Stewart doily lace punch

Hangin’ With Dad – Layout for Creative Scrappers Sketch#154

Now that I’ve moved onto Christian’s photos and Father’s Day is getting ever closer, I figured I’d scrap one for Larry. He prefers that flowers in general stay on layouts that feature Madison (though he does think that some of my handmade flowers are okay for boy pages) and he rarely likes doilies on “boy” pages. He does like when I use ink, paint and scruff things up a bit, so I kept things simple and went with a little paint, a little tearing, a touch of inking and a bit of distressing. For this layout, I went with the Creative Scrappers sketch#154 posted on May 1, 2011. I stuck very close to the sketch on this one and kept it clean the way Larry prefers. 😀 Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Bo Bunny Midnight Frost 12×12 cardstock papers
BB Timepiece 12×12 papers
American Craft white cardstock
BB Timepiece dimensional sticker
BB diecut alpha stickers
Folk Art white acrylic paint
Distress Ink

Adhesives:

Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro PermaTac

Here’s the fabulous Creative Scrappers sketch I was working with:

All Ours – Layout for Paper Secrets and Sketches4All

The first challenge for the SYAO event on Paper Secrets is now closed and participants are now moving onto the 2nd sketch. I’d already used it before for the “1st mohawk” layout of Alex last winter, so I rotated it 90 degrees to give me a fresh perspective. There’s also a list of 10 supply items and you need to select at least 5 of them to include on your layout. I chose dry embossing, misting, 3+ brads, 3+ buttons, ribbon and 3+ photo corners. I combined it with Challenge #4 (Bright Colors) on Sketches4All‘s Spring is in the Air event. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

October Afternoon Schoolhouse 12×12 cardstock paper
OA Schoolhouse alpha stickers
OA Mini Market stickers
OA Schoolhouse diecut stickers
Core’dinations G45 Core Impressions
American Crafts white cardstock
chain links from craft store
Maya Road chandelier beads
Making Memories brads
Bo Bunny buttons
Twine from The Twinery
Paper doily
Tattered Angels Shimmer Mist
blue photo corder brads

Adhesives:

Helmar Craft Glue
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac

Thanks for looking!

Just Like Dad Layout

This is the second part of the 2 pager I was talking about the other day. The left page is “You Shine a Light” which I posted a couple of days ago. At the top of the other page, the word “You” is in red block type, so I continued that onto this page adding “want to be” creating a subtitle to link the pages together. I also carried over the puppy w/the oversize crown. The journaling reads, “You have your dad’s magnetic personality and want to be just like him. You wear his shirts & hats & want to do everything he does…even when he’s napping.

For this layout, I again combined a few challenges. I loosely based it on the sketch for the NSD sketch challenge on Paper Secrets, combined it with Rosey’s white space challenge on Sketches4All and the digi brushes challenge on InspireMe (Webster’s Pages), but I’m not entering into the WP challenge. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Webster’s Pages Yacht Club 12×12 cardstock
WP Ladies and Gents 12×12 cardstock
WP Ladies and Gents digi brushes
WP journaling card
WP Storytellers Alpha stickers
Viva Pearl Pen in silver
Kaisercraft pearls
ink and markers

Adhesives:

Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
Helmar 450 Quick Dry (I could have used the craft glue, but needed it to dry quickly, so I went with the 450).

TFL!
