Beautiful Besties

Child free weekend means scrappy time! I got another layout done this time using the sketch at Stuck?! Sketches and some texture paste and stamping to join the challenge at Clique Kits. Here is the layout:
Here is the sketch:
I used texture paste and a stencil to create the horizontal and vertical lines (zoom in - I swear it is there!). I debated a long time if I should add some color or paper or stitching but in the end decided to keep it simple and subtle which is not my usual style! I stamped grey lines around the cluster to make it pop a little. The rest is layering die cuts.

Let's Eat Layout

Found some free time today so I chose to try-out a sketch from Creative Scrappers. Kristine always makes such interesting sketches. Here is what I made:

Here is the sketch:

I just love Carta Bella Christmas Delivery and was determined to make it work with this sketch. After moving papers around for way too long I realized flipping the sketch would work best. I wanted to use the snowflake paper because it matches the tablecloth in the photos. I snagged a title from the Silhouette Store and I think it came together pretty well.

So Cool Layout

I'm playing along with the Sketchy Saturday challenge at Paper Issues. I'm so glad I waited for the perfect collection to scrap this photo. My daughter's daycare sent me the pic. It shows off her super cute owl snowsuit and her kooky personality with her shades in winter.
Here is the sketch:

I used the super awesome Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa collection. I also grabbed some sequins and wood star from a Paper Issues swag bag.

Merry Christmas Baby Layout

My brother and sister-in-law sent these fabulous Christmas cards this year so I just had to scrap it. Also helps that the plaid matches the Carta Bella Christmas Delivery collection perfectly. I'm so jealous that they are such skilled photographers and designers so for now I'll just mooch their photos for my scrapbook!
There are still a few days left to play along in the Paper Issues Facebook group with the mood board challenge. Here is the board (with the perfect plaid again):

The title is cut from a font from the Silhouette Store called Clandestine Existence.

Best of 2016 Collage for Paper Issues

First, I would like to say a huge THANK-YOU to Paper Issues for having me on their team. It was so much fun and I learned so much. I'm so sad that my work life is so busy. I had to make the hard decision to not renew my term. But, I will still do some designing on a smaller scale and hopefully come back some day when work calms down.
So let's look at my fave creations from this year. There's a lot of Simple Stories and Crate Paper in there! Didn't hurt that I also acquired a Silhouette Cameo at the beginning of the year.

Head over to the Paper Issues Friends and Fans Facebook group and post your fave 16 of 2016!

Happy New Year!

Life Is Lovely - Hazelwood Spotlight at PI

Being off work for winter break means time to scrap! I made another layout for the Hazelwood Spotlight at Paper Issues. I posted it in the Facebook Friends and Fans group. This collection has these flowers that are so much fun to fussy cut. I also threw in a couple butterflies and word stickers from the Maggie Holmes Bloom collection.

Be Kind Layout - Hazelwood Spotlight at PI

I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday season! We had a wonderful Christmas. I also have some downtime so I'm playing with the new Hazelwood collection. If you haven't seen it yet, check out the Paper Issues blog for some inspiration and head to the store to pick some up (20% off with the code Carolyn). I have so many ideas for layouts I think I will be busy this week! I love all the butterflies and had this butterfly picture that had matching colors to the paper.
