A HB Card

This card was made with Webster's Pages "Postcards from Paris" line of 6x6 paper. I love the paper and it lends itself easily to fancier, more elaborate cards.
Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Photo Strip Challenge

The challenge (by Jess) was to use a photo strip. I just happened to have some from a photo booth in the Andy Warhol Factory museum in Kitchener. I used a program cover from the museum and some hand-outs. The layers of cardstock were inspired by the artwork in the museum. So much of it had great depth and made you think outside the box. I really enjoyed our time there, and doing the page, too! Thanks for stopping by!

Mid Month Reveal at Scrapshotz

This time, I worked with the TPC Studio - Mediterranean Summer line. Such vibrant colors - perfect for a beach sunset! The fabric brads that come with this line are self adhesive and super easy to use!
This one is of dh's big fish. (I knew I loved that orange shirt on him! LOL!) I wanted to let the pattern of the paper shine through, so left a big chunk of it open. The sparkly geometric strip is a rub on from this line, as is the word tag! The cb alphas weren't quite the right color of blue, so I outlined them with the Clearsnap Smooch (Ocean Soul.)
This pic of GS#2 was perfect for the fun patterns in this paper! I layered it on craft and fussy cut some of the elements out for accents. The flourishes loved the Clearsnap Smooch, and are pretty sparkly.
With scraps left on my table I made up some cards. I love these happy colors!
For this card I die cut an image with the nestabilities that I had already colored. The ribbon is silk and the cardstock is bling. Thanks for stopping by! :)

April Layout Tag

I always enjoy a layout tag, and this one was no exception. I was tagged by Rebecca and this is what I came up with.
I used the March Scrapshotz kit, featuring Glitz Distressed Couture paper, Glitz Red Teeny Block Alpha Stickers and Glitz Flower stamp. The kit also included the scalloped Bazzill cardstock I used here. The journaling spot (Maya Road) and the title letters (American Crafts Thickers) both are out of my stash.

It's a cool, damp day. A perfect scrapbooking evening is coming up! Thanks for looking and have a good one!

Blog Update and a Reveal!

I gave the blog a makeover! What do you think?

Here's a few layouts that I recently did for my April 1st Scrapshotz reveal, using the new Bo Bunny Mammarazzi line. I just love the colors and the grunginess of this paper.
I made a card with some leftover scraps.
Thanks for looking!
