Scrapbook Challenges Layouts – First Post on the New Blog

Sorry I’m a little late posting these. Since I was working on transfering content from my previous blog to this one, I wasn’t trying to add new posts in the interim, so my next few posts are just to catch up.

Scrapbook Challenges hosted a really fun Sizzling Summer event last month. It started with the Seasons of Change Hop On that I posted about previously then continued with 15 different sketches posted through the month (one new one each day M-F, then you had the last week to catch up on any sketches you missed). Though I didn’t do them all, I did have a lot of fun playing along and finished the month long event completing 8 of the 15 additional sketches. Below are 2 very different lo’s I created using very different styles. They were the first 2 I completed for the event.

This one really challenging for me since I don’t typically doodle on my layouts and Nat’s style is very unique. I was very inspired by her sketch and example (she was even nice enought to include a tutoral on how she created hers!) and loved working beyond my comfort zone. Thanks Nat! Here’s what I came up with:

If you have any questions about what materials were used, I’d be more than happy to let you know, just contact me with any questions. The bg paper is MME Stella & Rose, the tissue paper is 7 gypsies, the frame is Webster’s Pages, the drops I used for rain are by Robin’s Nest. All adhesives were by Helmar. Here’s the sketch it was based on:

I went very CAS (clean and simple) for the next one:

Again, since I’m posting something I created weeks ago, I’m not including a full materials list, but if you have any questions, I’m easy to contact. ๐Ÿ˜€ The papers and embellies are Teresa Collins Sports Edition II, I used an Epiphany punch and epoxy circle for the baseball embellie. All adhesives were by Helmar. The 450 Quick Dry made it a breeze to attach that bit of mesh trim on the photo, btw! ๐Ÿ˜€ Here’s the sketch my layout was based on:

Over the next couple of days, I’ll be posting 6 more layouts based on the Scrapbook Challenges sketches from last month. TFL!

Look Dada! Layout – Let’s Capture These Sketches #92

This week at Let’s Capture These Sketches, we had another gorgeous sketch by Ness to work with. I loved working with it and felt that a photo strip would be perfect for the layout. I chose a strip with Larry holding Christian. He was so fascinated by their image on the screen that he kept pointing to it and saying excitedly, “Look, Dada”! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here’s my take on the sketch:

Materials:

American Crafts cardstock
My Mind’s Eye Stella & Rose Hattie papers
MME Stella & Rose Hattie frame
MME Stella & Rose Hattie brads
MME Stella & Rose Hattie charm

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

TFL!
