Dorothy Layout for S.I.T.

The latest sketch at Sketches In Thyme has lots of possibilities. I used the Wizard of Oz paper pad from Paper House Productions to showcase a picture of my husband with Dorothy at the wax museum. I love how it turned out.

I added a bit more than in the sketch in an attempt to keep the page balanced. How awesome is that brick stamp?

I'm So Scary It's Cute Layout for P.H.P. and Tombow

We get to show off a bunch of cool products this week on the Paper House Productions blog! There is even a 25% off sale happening, so if you would like some Halloween products just use the code: SPOOKYDT17 valid Oct. 8 - 14, 2017 in the Paper House Store.
 
I used a free spider web cut file from Paper Issues. The title is a cut file from the Silhouette Store. The rest of the products are form the Wicked Good or Life Organized Halloween collection from Paper House Productions. They have the cute pockets (cat and ghosts), puffy stickers, 3D stickers (that skeleton's arm moves!) and cardstock stickers. I just love how this turned out!
Here are the Tombow products I used. The Mono Glue Pen in the picture was fantastic for adhering all those spider webs and the tiny letters in my title. The TwinTone markers were great for journaling.
Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Halloween!

Autumn Layout

A new favourite layout! I sat down to make something for the Free File Friday challenge at Paper Issues and love what happened. I grabbed an cut file and doubled it erasing the flower that came with it. Then I added this picture from my daughter's nursery school class. I decided to use the Pebbles Woodland Forest collection as I had not cut into it yet (common trend I have going). Backing the cuts took forever but Netflix got me through. The next day I used clear gesso to prime the paper and plastic packaged the yellow paint and splattered some orange.
Supplies
Pebbles: Woodland Forest
Simple Stories: Hello Fall (chipboard)
Bella Blvd: Zoo Crew (tabs)
Tim Holtz: Distress Paint yellow
Heidi Swapp: Color Shine peach
Clear gesso

Bookmarks for Paper House Productions

We have been making off the page projects on the Paper House Productions blog. I made three bookmarks for my project using a variety of new products. I made two bookmarks as thank-you gifts for a teacher and another to celebrate fall. If you have bits and pieces of a collection, this is a great way to use them up and add a handmade touch to a gift.
For the fall bookmark I layered two papers from the Autumn Woods collection. I cut out the sentiment from another paper and decorated with cardstock and epoxy stickers. I used a hole punch and added some matching twine.
For this teacher bookmark, I used the new Great Outdoors papers for the background. Then I mixed a bunch of school themed stickers. I love how the planner stickers, puffy stickers and mixed stickers all look together.
For the final bookmark, I used a paper from the Color Washed Paper Pad. Then I cut the packaging paper off the mixed stickers for the lined paper. I topped it off with a mixture of stickers.
That's it for me! I hope you have a moment to check out all the fun stickers and papers in the shop and don't forget to put those leftover supplies to use!

Keepin' It Real Layout for S.I.T.

I'm on the Sketches In Thyme blog today with this layout. I did something a little different and used an assignment my daughter did in school. I love her answers and having a record of her printing and spelling in grade 1.
Here is the sketch:
This was a real stash buster. I liked the background paper with the world on it so I used the Pink Paislee Atlas collection as my base. Then I used random die cuts that came from garage sales. I added some Shimelle buttons and painted the title.
Supplies

Oh, Hello There Layout

I needed some inspiration so I headed over to Paper Issues and looked at this month's sketch. I grabbed my bag of Amy Tangerine products, found a photo to match and had a layout done in no time. I decided on Amy Tangerine because I recently went to a scrappy garage sale and got embellishments to match to mountain of papers.
Here is the sketch. I stayed pretty true to it.
Supplies

Autumn Woods Traveler's Notebook for P.H.P.

I'm up on the Paper House Productions blog today to show you the Autumn Woods Life Organized Collection. Today I have used a traveler's notebook to document a trip through a neighbour's property. He is 95 years old and has the coolest yard in town. We visited during the fall so this collection is perfect for this adventure. I completed three different spreads in the notebook.
I used a little bit of everything in my notebook and mixed in alphas and papers from other collections too. The first spread has some fussy cutting of the leaves and the pretty stick-on pocket. For the second spread, I used Lake Life papers and a cut file to create the background. I wanted something that looked like a maze so this tree cookie was perfect! You can pick it up for free in the Paper Issues store. Again, I think I almost used one of everything in this collection on this spread. The Life Organized products are great for a traveler's notebook since planners are about the same size.
This is my favourite page with the washi tape acting as a border and the guffelwarf pictures! I hope you take a moment to read the journaling and check out how cute the different products look all clustered together.

Panda Party Layout

This sketch and mood board from Let's Get Sketchy made me think of the Crate Paper Cool Kid collection. I only was able to buy some of the papers so I chose a picture of my nephew at his panda party knowing I have some panda stickers from Paper House Productions. I added some letters, sequins, gems and twine from the stash and like how it turned out.
Here is the challenge:
I used lots of the colours from mood board such as black, orange and blue. The twist was to scrap a boy subject.
Supplies
Crate Paper - Cool Kid
Studio 77 alphas
Simple Stories - Emoji Love stickers
Gems
Fancy Pants - Oh Deer sequins

Witches Gulch Layout for P.H.P.

We went on an awesome vacation to the Wisconsin Dells last summer. This photo is a stop on the boat tour. It was so beautiful there and one of my favorite memories of the trip. The new Great Outdoors and older Lake Life collections from Paper House Productions were perfect for scrapping these pictures. There is a big sale at Paper House on Aug. 25 so stop by their store!
There is so much Great Outdoors on this layout! Washi, rice paper, puffy clips, epoxy stickers, flake stickers, sticky pockets and more. All the papers come from the Lake Life collection. I used a distress tool to rough them up a bit. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the title which is a font from the Silhouette Store called Hansel and Gretel. Here is a close-up.
And another.
And another.

Summer Ice Cream Layout

There are so many fantastic layouts popping up in my Instagram feed with the Summer Lights collection, I decided to give it a go. I've had zero ideas lately but at least I knew which picture would match my paper so that is where I started. I also played along with the Paper Issues Take 5 challenge.
I knew the popsicle paper had to be in the layout so I cut it on an angle and tried it out with different backgrounds. I played around with the frames until I got something I liked and then sewed around the layout before gluing anything down. I had a bunch of embellishment die cuts and kept adding more but didn't want it to just be die cuts so I found some straws and white paint. That did the trick for me.
I used turquoise, die cut, patterned paper, title, border, ink, and a summer theme. I guess that's more than five.
Supplies
Pink Paislee - Summer Lights
White gesso
Paper straws
Black fine tip Sharpie pen
White thread

Beautiful Bubbles Layout for P.H.P.

I received the Color Washed Paper Pad from Paper House Productions and it is a stunner. There is so much gold foil! I made this bubble layout with my daughter in a purple polka dot dress because the paper pad has these gorgeous purple papers (which are not that common). I used a free cut file from Paper Issues and a few butterflies from the Paper House Productions Butterfly Project Pad.
All the embellishments and the title can be found in one of the paper pads making this an easy project. I didn't have to hunt through my stash to find stuff.
Here are some close-ups.
And another close-up.

Just Hangin' Out Layout

I really like the sketch at Creative Scrappers this month. I used these pictures from the playground last summer.
Here is the sketch:
I used the ornate frame cut file from the Silhouette Store. The word 'just' is from the Silhouette Store from a title called 'just beat it'. The 'hangin out' title is from the Paper Issues Store. I'm joining the Product Spotlight at Paper Issues where you show off your summer layouts.

The Good Life Layout

I've got a pile of Oh My Heart layouts on the go. They seem to match my Lego Store pictures so I might actually have some continuous matching pages in my album.
For this one I cut these squares in half to make triangles and then played with a hundred different patterns until I ended with this one. I machine sewed the triangles. I had a hard time adding more embellishments so I just left it like this.
Supplies

Traveler's Notebook for P.H.P.

My task today was to use a Paper House Productions Craft Set. I chose the Travel Set to make a traveler's notebook. I used an old notebook and recovered it with a sticker sheet in the set.
I began with this notebook.

I removed the coils and wrapped the cover in the sticky map. I added embellishments from the kit and a title using the alphas. Pretty easy and I love how it looks. Now I just need to find a vacation!
