Sweet Little Diva Layout – Berry71Bleu and Let’s Scrap

This layout of Madison was actually created last month for two separate challenges. One was a sketch from Let’s Scrap. Though it was a 2 page sketch, they allow you to either create a 2 pager or just pick one half for inspiration. I opted to use the right half for the layout. The other was a recipe challenge on Berry71Bleu. The recipe called your the layout to include: 1 cardstock base, 3+ patterned paper (1 of which must be a circle of at least 10cm), 1 lace/ribbon/trim, 1 journal spot, 2 buttons and 4 embellishments of your choice (I decided to add 1 more button, 1 more journal spot, rhinestones and stickles), a title of your choice. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Bazzill cardstock
Webster’s Pages Let’s Celebrate papers
WP Let’s Celebrate Journaling cards
WP Let’s Celebrate trim
Teresa Collins blingage
WP Vintage Inspired Buttons (Sparklers)
WP Storytellers Alphas
Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type alpha stickers
Stickles
Ranger/Inkssentials White Pen

Adhesives:

Helmar Adhesive Runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Gemstone Glue
Helmar Scrap Dots
Helmar Zap Dots

Tools:

Martha Stewart circle cutter
EK Success Paper Shapers punch

Two Cards – Bo Bunny and Paper Secrets

Bo Bunny tends to post a card challenge on their blog about every other week or so and this time, they posted a really great card sketch on July 30th which is due tomorrow evening (Aug 14, 2011). Since I’m still learning to make cards, I figured this would be a great opportunity to work on a fun challenge. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Bo Bunny Timepiece pp
BB Timepiece diecut stickers
BB Timepiece chipboard
American Crafts solid cardstock base
Distress Inks

Adhesives:

Helmar Adhesive runner

This is the fab sketch they posted:

Next is a card I created for the Paper Secrets Card Challenge with a twist. The twist was to use chipboard, bling/pearls and ribbon.

I entered one of the layouts I’d created using Webster’s Pages Let’s Celebrate papers and trim into the Scrapbookers Anonymous challenge and you get a bonus entry when you use the scraps for a card. Since I got the fab Webster’s Pages Let’s Celebrate Papers from the Paper Secrets store (they have a 20% off offer right now that ends tomorrow at midnight. Use coupon code take20 at checkout), I figured the scraps from my layout would be perfect for this card! Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Webster’s Pages Let’s Celebrate pp
WP Let’s Celebrate trim
WP trendsetter chipboard button
Kaisercraft rhinestones
Distress Ink
American Crafts cardstock base

Adhesives:

Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Zap Dots

Here’s the pagemaps sketch for the card challenge:

Smile & Laugh Layout – Sketchabilities sketch

Sketch #52 at Sketchabilities was a lot of fun to work with! I really liked the layers and how different elements appeared tucked behind the photos. As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew I wanted to use the fab Webster’s Pages Let’s Celebrate papers with it and knew exactly which photos I wanted to use. Lucky for me, Scrapbookers Anonymous has a challenge this month to use journaling blocks/spots/cards on your project, which worked well with what I had in mind for this sketch. 😀 Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Webster’s Pages Let’s Celebrate papers
WP Let’s Celebrate Trim
WP Let’s Celebrate Journaling Cards
WP Let’s Celebrate Fabric Ticket
WP Spring Market Princess Petal
WP Pinwheel florette
Viva Pearl Pen

Adhesives:

Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Acid Free Glue
Helmar Zap Dots

Here’s the fab sketch I used:
