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!

Buddies – MME Sketch Challenge Entry

For this layout, I again combined 2 challenges. There’s an awesome sketch by Anam Stubbington for the My Mind’s Eye Blog Challenge 23, so the basic layout is based on that sketch plus the final NSD Challenge on Paper Secrets is to create a layout with 3 handmade flowers, each made with a different technique. Now the real challenge was the fact that it’s a boy layout and I needed to create flowers that go with the page but didn’t seem girly! Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

MME Stella & Rose Hattie “Family” Pinstripe Paper
MME S&R Hattie “Buddies” Argyle Paper
MME S&R “Family” Silk Tie Paper
MME S&R Hattie trim
MME S&R Hattie brads
MME S&R Hattie title
MME S&R Hazel paper (for one flower)
Echo Park For the Record paper (for one flower)

Adhesives:

Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Cosmo Cricket Gluber
Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro Perma Tac
Helmar Zap Dots

This is the fab sketch my layout is based on:

If you’d like to enter the MME sketch challenge, entries are due by Thursday, May 19, 2011 midnight MST. TFL!

Paper Secret’s May Challenges

The May challenges have been posted on Paper Secrets. Enter any or all of the 4 challenges to be entered to win the monthly prize! One is a card sketch challenge with a twist. The twist is to use a bare chipboard piece on your project and alter it in some way. For my card, I used a Maya Road butterfly and coated it with a Viva Pearl Pen (kind of like liquid pearls). Here’s what I came up with using Webster’s Pages, new Trendsetter 6×6 papers, bloomer, trims, pins, and their sparklers from last year:

Another is a layout challenge based on a pagemaps sketch. I combined it with a “something old/something new” challenge on Sketches4All that also required you to add sparkle and dimension to your project. For this one, I went with MME’s original Lush line (the light blue patterned paper, trim and brads) and mixed it with Lush 2 (the fuchsia and navy papers and journaling spot). The buttons were also old, as were the WP and Cosmo Cricket alphas for the title. Here’s how it turned out:

The journaling is just explaining how incredulous we were when when Matthew was an infant (he was early too) and Madison was a year old (90th percentile for height and weight), how often we were asked if they were twins. Ha! 😀

The last example I have is for the stash/supply challenge. For this month, all you need to do is use 3 or more rubons on your project. For mine, I used a Kraft base, scraps for the matting, American crafts trim, yarn from my stash, and Bo Bunny rubons. Since I wanted to add dimension w/the rub-on images, I adhered them to plain cardstock, fussy cut them, then popped them up with foam dots. Here’s my example:

The overall design was a scraplift challenge on another site. The fourth challenge is a manufacturer challenge. This month’s featured manufacturer is Glitz. Unfortunately, I do not have any of Glitz’s fab products, so I wasn’t able to create an example for this challenge. Hope you stop by and join in on some of the great new challenges and don’t forget, we have a wonderful event scheduled to take place this Saturday, May 7, 2011 (National Scrapbooking Day), as well as the Scrap Your A** Off contest starting May 13th (sign up before May 12th to join in). HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE! 😀
