Studio Challenges: Dreaming With Eyes Wide Open

Hello there! Today is a new challenge at Studio Challenges. The challenge is 
"near and dear" to me as it's my idea: NOT TO BE SQUARED.

Basically, make your background anything but squares and rectangles. 
Reach for your cutting machines and mat files or reach for your 
punches. In this case, I reached for my triangle punch.

Thanks for stopping by today!!



Supplies:
Pinkfresh - Dream On Collection
Hand-stitching
Flares and Enamel dots from somewhere

Studio Challenges: Baby Mine


Hello there! Today I have for you the newest challenge at Studio Challenges.
It's a sketch based off of one of my previous layouts. Thanks Anna, for
finding my layouts inspirational.

Without further ado . . .


For the layout, I decided to go playful and use negative shapes. That means
that I made a pattern of triangles, circles, etc using SCAL4. Then cut those
patterns out onto my background paper. 

I then cut those same shapes using various patterned paper. Finally, I added 
all the stitching . . . which took about 40 minutes.

The rest came together quickly after that.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!


This photo is one of my favorites of my son at four months. Such a playful
and fun couple of months before teething and crawling began.
He was such a happy and chubby baby.


Love how all the stitching brings everything together. The buttons are
from the Japanese store, Daiso.

Supplies:
Doodle Bug Designs - Sunkissed
Bella Blvd. - Tiny Tots
Echo Park - Spring
Embroidery Floss - Pastel colors
Stickers - Bella Blvd. Tiny Tots
Buttons - Daiso
Random turtle from stash
Silhouette Cameo
SCAL4

Give a Crafter a Cookie

Hello there! I'm here to present my latest DT project with "If You Give a Crafter a Cookie".

Here's the challenge:



Here's my TACKLE BOX!! I did make this for my dad who loves fishing
and is also very patriotic. Hint: I don't have "fishing paper" so I went 
with this theme instead.


The file is by Lori Whitlock, purchased from the Silhouette
Online store. The file came with a fish, fishing rod, and bobber but
those particular cuts were corrupt and would not transfer to the Silhouette.
First for me.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!!!

Supplies:

AC Cardstock - Neutrals
BoBunny - Boardwalk
Wooden Embellishments from Creative Embellishments
Buttons
Star Brads - on the handle
Glue

Studio Challenge: Sun Sand & Sea

Hello there! Today I'm sharing with you my layout with newest Studio Challenges this week - a color palette! This could easily be Spring or Summer colors.


I had a lot of fun making this particular layout. I actually made it on NSD which had me thinking about my particular style a lot. I love using my Silhouette Cameo and I love stitching. Lately I've been really enjoying cutting background mats for my layouts. They come together like puzzle pieces and look so striking, at least I think so.

Thanks for stopping by today!!


Combination of Prima flowers, die cut tropical leaves and shiny brads

Title is from Miss Kate Cuttables. Wooden leaf from Michael's

For a little extra effect, I added stitching (of course)

Supplies:
BoBunny - Beach Happy and Key Lime paper
Silhouette Cameo - heart, title, leaves and ampersand 
Miss Kate Cuttables - title
Paper Issues - free file heart and tropical leaves
Prima flowers by Anna Marie
Brads
Hand Stitching
Wooden leaf - Michael's
Beach embellishments - Michael's

Creative Scrappers #306: Webelos


Hello and welcome! Today I'm sharing with you my DT layout using Creative Scrappers #306 sketch. This will be my last project with Creative Scrappers as our term comes to a close at the end of this month! It has been FUN!!

I have learned that when I'm working with a sketch or theme that I find difficult, I need to reach for the old-fashioned stuff. Or at least reach for the papers that I keep dismissing for other projects. This has served me well.

This is NOT a difficult sketch. But if you've been following me for a while, you know that I prefer negative space and to work with large mat die cuts. 

Without further ado, here it is. Thank you so much for stopping by today!!


My son joined cub scouts this past school year. He is in the Webelos pack #612.

I thought the little fire die cut was perfect!

The title is made using font I purchased for SCAL.

A cluster of Tim Holtz ephemera.
Patterned papers are by ADORNit: Timberland Critters

Studio Challenges: #Fave

Hello!! Welcome to my blog!

Today I'm sharing with you my interpretation of this week's challenge at Studio Challenges: Recipe Challenge.

Use a combination of the following: Paint, Hand sewing, Fussy cutting, A Frame, Buttons, Pink

I did everything except fussy cutting!! I did "cheat" and use my own interpretation of "Paint". I didn't actually use watercolors on this layout. The page is from the Altenew Reflection Kit in which the whole kit is a watercolor theme. Good enough for me!!!

I scrap-lifted this page from Ashley Horton's design.

This layout is about my family's time in Germany, specifically visiting Burg Elke (or castle). It was one of my favorite spots.

Thanks for stopping by today!!





Supplies:
Altenew Reflection Kit: Nearly everything on this layout is from the kit
Thickers: Title
Hand-stitching
Circle template
Twine

Studio Challenges: A Sister is the best kind of friend

Hello and welcome! Today's layout is part of the new challenge at Studio Challenges: Use a Quote. 

I went "backwards" to make this layout. First, I really wanted to use this new pack by Pinkfresh. Then I went hunting for the right photo to use with it. Finally - the title or quote to go with it.

This is my sister wearing her wedding dress. I was the photographer and together we got some fabulous shots of both her inner beauty and outer beauty. She is my best friend and I would not be the person I am today without her.

When you first look at Pinkfresh's Indigo Hills line, you don't think "wedding photos". But with my sister, it was perfect. It's trendy, has touches of pink everywhere without being gaudy, and still embraces the sensitive side of photos. Note: I don't sell or design for Pinkfresh but have definitely fallen in love with their paper lines.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!!



This flower is handmade from a paper line that's so old I don't remember the name.
It's funny how trends and patterns make the go around over time.

I used a blend of Pinkfresh letters for the title. I'm not sure it's a new trend, but
it's definitely new to me to make a layout this way. I usually don't "mix it up".

Supplies:
Pinkfresh - Indigo Hill's paper pack
Pinkfresh - Dream On Puffy Alpha Letters
Pinkfresh - Studio Puffs
More of Indigo Hills alphas
Butterfly punch
Handmade flower
Silhouette Studio - patterned mat (behind photo)
Citrus Kit stamp

Studio Challenges: Use Those Numbers

It's time for a new challenge at Studio Challenges!! This challenge is to use some of those numbers that you have laying around your craft space.

Many of us chose to go with a birthday theme for our layouts. Well . . . me too!!!! After recently going thru my albums I discovered that I had not yet scrapped many of my son's birthdays. October is such a busy month I usually end up making a Fall layout! LOL

Instead of scrapping about the rough & tumble side of a boy, I went with the softer side. I loved using Pinkfresh Studio's 'Dream On' collection for this as the layout just fell right into place!!!

I followed this sketch from my Pinterest board.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

I loved the puffy alpha stickers from the Dream On collection
for the title. 
Of course I added a little stitching and some blobs of ink.

Love to cluster embellishments!!!

Supplies:
Pink Fresh Studio - Dream On Collection
---Puffy Alphabet, Washi Stickers, Cardstock Die Cuts & Paper
Hand Stitching
October Afternoon Sprinklers - Night Sky
Dymo Label (year)
AC letters/numbers (the number 7)

Creative Scrappers: One of Those Great Days


It's time for a new sketch reveal with Creative Scrappers!! Here is the sketch.


I will admit, I found this sketch particularly challenging. My own style is all about using small bits of paper instead of large sheets. After scratching my head for a while, I decided to go "old school". By that I mean an older line of paper, older photos, and embrace an older style of scrapping.



The three squares are all 5"x5" each. I still couldn't bring myself to make them 
any larger than that. However, I did manage to bust out the "scrappy" stapler!!


The photo squares and title are a mat file from the Silhouette Online store.


I reached for older photos from 2011. My son was so little!!!

Supplies:
Elle's Studio - You & Me
Elle's Studio - Love You More
Bella Blvd - Freestyle Sophistacates
Me & My Big Ideas
Altenew stamp (date)
Dymo Label (Hardy Lake)
Heart Punch
Silhouette Cameo - Title and photo squares
