Mother Daughter Scrapbook Layout

IMG_2611

Products used: Kaiser Chino pearls, Prima Fabric Fancies floral embellishments, more Prima flowers, 2 odd ones unknown, and pattern paper, stickers, and title are all by Pebbles Inc.  Based on an August 2009 Page Map.

I used my corner rounder to make the scalloped border along the top.  I had fun using all the flowers and these colors are very different for me.  I usually use pinks and more girly colors.

Playtime at Sea World Layout

I have done some pages lately but haven’t had a chance to take any pictures so here’s another layout from last year:

Products used: DCWV paper, CTMH flowers, Tattered Angels glitter mist, CTMH Giggle alphabet stamps, Darice rhinestone stickers, and CTMH Cherish book.

The girls had a blast at this fun contraption within the park at Sea World in California.  They just bounced back and forth!  The flowers were white and I sprayed them with pink glitter mist to add color and sparkle.

Grandfather 3 Generation Layout

Here’s a layout I did awhile back and haven’t had a chance to share yet:

Products used: Pebbles, Inc. papers and stickers, brads unknown.

Based on Scrap Sketch #111.

A simple stamped card in blue

Products used: Staz-On ink, CTMH Simple Beauty stamp set, CTMH Simple Stitches stamp set, and Copic Sketch markers.

Challenges:
Stamp Something – Color Combo Challenge

This is my first use of my Copic markers.  I don’t have a lot of colors to play with so the blue challenges fit well.  I didn’t realize that Staz On ink needed time to dry but lesson learned.  I refrained from added any extra embellishments because I thought it was pretty as is.  So surprisingly there is no bling on this card!  I can’t decide if I want to add a sentiment so I’m just leaving it blank for now.  It was fun crafting the day away.  I’m not sure if I will continue or take a break.  I’m running out of daylight so I probably won’t share any more today unless I end up doing a time-sensitive challenge.

Best Wishes Card with stamping and chalk

Products used: Rob and Bob Studio Super Slab by Provo Craft, Art Warehouse Limited Edition stamp set, Versamark ink, Kaisercraft pearls, and unknown vellum sentiment sticker and ribbon.

Challenges:
Stampin’ for the Weekend – Fiona’s sketch
Penny’s Challenge #20 – Chalks
Quixotic Challenge #10 – Ink up an old stamp

I stamped the flower with Versamark ink and then rubbed chalk over the top with an applicator.  It is so much fun to see the color appear!  I finished the stamped image and really liked it but the paper I had picked out for it just didn’t look right so it took me awhile before I ran across this paper.  It’s very different colors than what I was looking for but I love them!  I liked the ribbon for this card and added multiple layers for a more solid look.  The stamp I used is from a set that I just had to have.  It was fun to finally use it!
