Boy page today :)

I hope eveyone had a wonderful Easter holiday weekend. We were lucky to be able to take a little short trip to Georgia for a few days.  I'm happy to be home again but not looking forward to all the laundry :(

I'm here to share just a couple of layouts I did a few weeks ago.  The first one is a really cute picture of my hubby and son.  I caught this moment and I really love it because it wasn't staged and my husband didn't realize what our son was doing.

All the elements here are from Bo Bunny's Cambridge collection.  I traced a shaped paper to add to the background (brown sheet).  On the photo edges I added paint  to make them stand out a bit.  Lots of punches were used as well as some inks and twine.

This layout is a collection of different MFG's.  The papers are from Glitz and the flowers are Prima.  I added some pearlz to make the dots around the shaped paper and used punches as well.

Thanks for stopping by today :)

One Sheet Wonder!

 Hi Everyone!  Today I want to share with you a project I did using up some scraps.  All I used is ONE sheet of cardstock, some journaling tags and a few embellishments.

This is a little 3x3 album using one sheet of cardstock. I have made lots of these over the years making different types of covers and ways to hold them shut, etc.  I was surfing around and found a video of Tim Holtz making the same album (Which he calls the Z fold album) but using the tissue tape to cover the edges and the binding and making pockets in the album.

I looked for the video but wasn't able to find the one he did.  There are a ton of videos out there showing how to make this mini. Instead of using the tissue tape I used some tape from Pink Paislee. The papers and journaling tags are from PP too.

Thanks for looking today :)

The 6 month layout!!!

Do you ever have a layout in your head that it takes you AGES to get onto page?  Well, this is one I have had in mind for 6 months or more.  I've had the photo sitting out and had the title and some of the design but I just never seemed to want to "get it together". 

"Stud Making Spuds"

One thing that was keeping me from doing it was in my mind I was going to sew the banner together.  That means taking out the sewing machine and putting it away.  Ugh, I hate that.  If I can't scrap it on my scrap table then I don't get motivated to do it. I finally figured out a different way to do the banner.

I used Tim Holtz tissue tape!  It's also under the title "stud" and under the flower.
I used some paint on the lettering and paint to stamp with cardboard.

I have a technique challenge going on over at Scrapbook Challenges this month.  The challenge is for you to use one of the two techniques I used here in this layout.  Submit one that has a banner created by you or use paint to stamp with.  Easy Peasy :)
