#Cute Pup – layout for Creative Embellishments

Hi, everyone! Doris here and after a week off, I’m back with a layout to share! I’ve been hoarding these fun 13arts papers for a little while and finally decided to break them out and use them for a page of my 2nd youngest son. This is an older photo that was taken when he was just 2 1/2 year old, but I couldn’t resist scrapping it using a combination of Creative Embellishments Dog Gone Cute and Firefighter wood veneers. 😀 Here’s what I came up with:

Happy Birthday Wish – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

WOOHOO It’s birthday month over at Creative Embellishments. Not only is my birthday in April, but Nicolle and Sandi are also celebrating birthdays this month. 😀 Since Nic is turning the big 4-0 this year, she’s decided that for this month’s challenge, she’ll be giving away a $40 gc to the Creative Embellishments store to the winner! How awesome is that?

The challenge this month is use the inspiration image any way you’re inspired and select at least 4 items out of the list of 10 to use on your page. You may use any other embellishments you’d like, as long as you also incorporate at least 4 items from the list.

For my page, I was inspired by the birthday theme of the inspo image and the colors, candles, balloons, cake, stripes and dots. From the list, I was originally going to use most of the items, but had a change of plans, so instead I simplified and went with these 4 items: doodling, enamel dots, mist and paint, bling (rhinestones on the crown).

I was also inspired by Sketchabilities sketch #112, so I used the CE Rings for So Many things and View Master Photo Slides to replace the circular elements and flowers from the sketch. The wood pieces from the Birthday Fun wood veneer set were all altered using PITT artist markers. The word “wish” at the top of my page is actually cut from the Wishful Thinking title piece. The remaining 2 CE products I used for my page are the Happy Birthday title piece and the Wavy Music note border (which I left raw).

 

Here’s how it turned out:

Dream On – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

Happy Thursday, everyone! I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout of my youngest son. This photo was taken a couple of years ago, the one and ONLY time he ever fell asleep unintentionally. lol Christian is not only a night owl, but he takes after me in other ways too. He doesn’t tend to just fall asleep randomly like other babies and toddlers do. He snuggles with his blanket, lays down, closes his eyes and knows he’s falling asleep…all but this once that I’m aware of. One minute he was sitting up and jabbering away and the next, he was slumped over and asleep. Just.like.that. lol

To create my page, I used several Creative Embellishments stamps on the background and layering some CE chippies with papers and metal pieces that I intentionally rusted. To alter the title, circles and panel, I just applied acrylic paint. For the view master slide, I then inked over it with distress ink. The frond I gessoed, then used distress stain, allowing it to puddle unevenly on the piece and air dry.

I was also inspired by sketch #111 from Sketchabilities. 😀

#Sweetheart – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

I’m back on the Creative Embellishments blog for Thursdays, so I have a layout to share. My youngest son is our wild child and little he does would be what we’d consider typical. Considering we’ve got 5 kids, that’s saying a lot. lol My little critter has been climbing onto the back of the couch since before he could walk. Even now, at 3 1/2, he likes to lay across the back of the couch when watching tv or just hanging out. He recently started reading, but he’s always enjoyed looking at his books as seen in these pics.

I was inspired by 2 challenges when creating my page. CSI-Color Stories Inspiration case file #109 and sketch 27.1 from Page Drafts. I’ve also used a script bg stamp that is not yet listed in the store, so keep your eye out for this beauty! 😀

Here’s what I came up with:

From the evidence column, I chose to stack something (papers) and included frames. From the testimony column, I used “read” as my inspiration word for the journaling. TFL!
