Santa Monica Layout

I was inspired by the sketch at My Creative Scrapbook and chose to scrap some pictures of our visit to California.
Here is the sketch:

I chose a font and cut the word Monica with my Silhouette Cameo. I misted the background and stitched the sun and adhered it after so it added more dimension. I used a punch for the banner. The sun is a free cut file from Paper Issues and I'm going to put this layout in the Product Spotlight.

Pandy Layout

So what do you do to keep busy at the lake? String art! It drove other people crazy that I was always reading or sewing but I worked hard so I could enjoy my vacation time. When I got home I added the picture and embellishments.
I actually used the table cloth with stripes to draw the lines. Then I punched holes with my needle and sewed randomly. I was very pleased to find the perfect picture when I got home and some panda stickers!

Pink, blue and purple embroidery thread

Sorry Layout

The cousins love to play Sorry! at my parent's place. It is a good lesson in patience and winning/losing! More older papers trying to clean-out the stash.
I handmade the letters and used my Pen Blade to cut them out. I literally went through my entire stash trying to find game related embellishments and had to settle for what I could find and some word bubbles.
Supplies

DCWV - The Snapshot Stack (dominoes)
Bo Bunny ephemera (cards)
Black fine tip Sharpie pen

Word bubbles from the stash

Friendship Cards for P.H.P. and My Sentiments Exactly

Hello! Today the Paper House Productions team has tried out some stamps from My Sentiments Exactly. I received the friendship stamp set. I decided to make two cards using the Be Happy Paper Pad.
I folded 8.5" x 11" white cardstock in half and adhered a background paper. Then I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the flowers. I used some black ribbon and stickers that came with the paper pad. To finish it off I used a stamp with white ink. On the inside of the card, stamped another sentiment.
For the second card, I repeated the first step and then adhered a cut apart card from the paper pad. I fussy cut some flowers from another copy of the cut apart card to balance the card. Then I used a stamp with black ink for the sentiment. The photo corners are from a previous swap with Scrapbook Adhesives.

Cake Layout for S.I.T.

I'm up on the Sketches In Thyme blog today with this colourful birthday layout. I was so lucky to win the new Jillibean Soup Souper Celebration collection from Page Maps so I had to dig in right away. This sketch was perfect for a fun, bright layout. Yes, I did try to decorate my husband's cake with his favorite hockey team logo. The effort was appreciated!
Here is the sketch by Shawn Lahr:

I used a combination of my Silhouette machine and a circle cutting stencil. I hope you can play along this month for a chance to win a great prize!
