I Adore You card for My Mind’s Eye blog challenge

Each month, My Mind’s Eye posts a card and a layout challenge on their blog with a shared theme to go with the sketches by Anam Stubbington. This month, the theme is “You.” After making 3 girly cards full of pink, I wanted to create a masculine one, so I decided to make Larry a Valentine using this challenge. Here is my take on this month’s card sketch:

Materials:

MME Stella & Rose Mabel 6×6 pp, MME S&R Mabel brads
MME S&R Mabel buttons
MME S&R Mabel diecut sticker
Twine from the Twinery
Distress Ink

Adhesives:

Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar Premium Craft Glue
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots

This month’s fab sketch:

Eager – Layout for Creative Scrappers sketch #191

I loved working with the fun sketch #191 by Nicole Nowosad for Creative Scrappers. For my take on it, I stuck pretty close to the sketch. The journaling reads, “Eager to walk run and always the daredevil. You didn’t just cruise at 6 months, you ran as long as you had something to holdonto…even if it was the back of the couch as you darted across the cushions. 1/04/2011.” Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Basic Grey Green at Heart pp
Basic Grey Green at Heart alphas
Basic Grey Green at Heart sticker
Basic Grey Sugar Rush brads
Basic Grey Bling it on Rub-on
Prima flowers
white pen

Adhesives:

Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar Premium Craft Glue

Last set of Layouts from the Scrapbook Challenges Event

***Warning – This post is photo heavy*** In order to get the rest of the layouts from last month posted quickly so I can move onto this month’s reveal at Let’s Capture These Sketches, the last 4 layouts from last month are all in this one post.

I had a lot of fun working with this next sketch. I ended up rotating it 90 degrees and using 2 photos instead of 1. I also relocated the title to suit my layout. Here’s what I came up with for Sketch SS03:

I used the Pink Paislee Daily Junque line and used the patterned paper to create a nice scalloped border and the flower I pieced together. Fun line to work with. πŸ˜€ Here’s the fab sketch I got to use:

For the next one, I went CAS again. The sketch already was pretty clean, but I straightened out the wavy lines and added a bit flowers and glitter. Here’s my take on Sketch SS12:

For this one, I stuck with Crate Paper’s Emma’s Shoppe. The border punch is by Martha Stewart. I added stickles to my flowers. Here’s the sketch I worked with for this one:

Next up is a departure from my norm once again. One of my goals for this year is to scrap “real life” so not just the happy moments but real life stuff that happens. So, I scrapped about what happened this last Winter and how we found out Matthew had Lyme Disease. I used sketch SS07:

Simple Stories Destination papers and Life Documented stickers. G45 metal flower, paper flowers and brad. Maya Road trim and Pink Paislee green alphas. Here’s the sketch I used:

This last one I did for fun. The sketch looked really interesting and had a lot of possibilities, so I really liked working with it. I decided to go with Matthew being…well, Matthew! lol This super photogenic little guy poses for pics, but then when he’s had enough starts making funny faces. I guess he was quite distracted by the baby, cuz I managed to get tons of fab photos before he started sticking out his tongue and being goofy (normally it’s soon after the first pic). I scrapped most of the other photos, so I figured I might as well scrap this fun photo too. πŸ˜€ Here’s my take on Sketch SS14:

October Afternoon 5 and Dime papers, stickers and chipboard. Here’s the super fun sketch:

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.

Materials:

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

Maya Road chipboard alphas
