Sweet Heart – Creative Embellishments and CSI Guest project for Case 171

Hi everyone this month the Creative EmbellishmentsΒ team is playing along with the CSI cases and this is how I solved case #171.

Sweet Heart

Here is the case info:


From the evidence category, I used triangles and texture paste on my background. πŸ˜€


Here are some other close ups of the CE pieces I’ve layered on my page:

I love how CE pieces are so easy to alter and layer to create a story on your project.

First Day of School (Kindergarten) – Layout for Creative Scrappers sketch #197

I absolutely love Creative Scrappers sketch #197! As soon as I saw it, I knew it was perfect for my dt layout for the Manufacturer/Brand challenge I’m hosting on Paper Secrets. This month’s featured manufacturer is Graphic 45, so I selected a pic of Matthew this last fall on his first day of school and the fabulous G45 ABC Primer. I was also thrilled to be able to incorporate some of the gorgeous Dusty Attic chippies I got from the STTG scrap store! Here’s my take on the sketch:

Graphic 45 diecut alphas
G45 metal flowers
G45 brads

My Girl Layout – Once Upon a Sketch Challenge Entry

I’ve had this photo of Madison for quite a while and have been waiting for just the right sketch and papers to use for it. Getting a good picture of her is a challenge (she plasters on a fake looking smile whenever she sees the camera), so pretty pics of her are few and far between! I’ve been further challenged by the fact that it’s a Christmas pic, but doesn’t really look like Christmas? I wanted to use non-traditional Christmas colors and figured I’d just have to pick a line that’s actually meant for Spring. Well, Webster’s Pages recently released their Winter Fairy Tales collection for the Summer CHA and I found this wonderful sketch on Once Upon a Sketch and knew I’d finally found the perfect combination for my daughter’s photo. πŸ˜€ Here’s what I came up with:


Webster’s Pages Winter Fairy Tales 12×12 papers
WP Dazzle Me Gems
WP Bloomers
WP Storytellers Alphas
WP heart Whimsey
Prima Flowers
Crocheted flower received in my prize pack by Marivic last month (berry71bleu.com)


Helmar Acid Free Glue
Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots


Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch
