I can’t even remember the last time I did a layout with the dogs. I think it is when I first started scrapping, the early years. So I had to re-purpose the photos from an early layout that I just didn’t like to make for this one.
Our challenge at Use Your Stuff this week is Pets/Animals. It’s ok if you don’t have any pets, you can create a project that is pet related.
Take a look at my pound puppies…Tonka (the bijon) is 14 and Pickles (the pug) is 12 but you would never guess it. These two, who are the best of friends are as frisky as you can imagine. They run around the house all the time and are just as loud as they ever were. :)
Join us this week on the blog and play along in our challenge.
All of my DP is from my stash (oh I had to dig for my animal themed paper let me tell you!) but I based the layout on Sue Sykes’ October sketchy challenge over at Canadian Scrapbooker!
Here is the sketch!
And then my layout!
Thanks for stopping by!
Sunday! The start of another week. We’ve been busy over here, as I am getting ready for my craft fairs coming up next month.
Have you stopped by the Red Carpet Studio blog today? You will see we have a new challenge up!
Our theme this week is drawing inspiration from The Haunted Mansion!
We are wanting to see your Hallowe’en themed projects this week. Here is a layout I created about my little munchkin in his very first Hallowe’en costume. I loved this costume. I thought it was just adorable on him.
Most of this was created from just bits and bobs out of my stash. I don’t make a lot of Hallowe’en projects so I tend to have a lot of left over paper. The jack o’lanterns are just some dollar store stickers I had and the pumpkin in the corner is made from my cuttlebug die. Some thickers finish it off. Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to drop by the blog.
Ahh fall is here. The leaves have started to drop, the colors are changing and the air is getting cooler. Our new challenge at Use Your Stuff this week celebrates all that is fall! The sounds, the sights, the smells..show us what fall means to you.
I love making autumn cards because I love all those rich hues.
I just wanted to make a simple autumn card for a swap-bot swap that I am doing. More layers than bulk and I love using my favorite pumpkin stamp! I hope that you will play along with us this week. Can’t wait to see what you create!
is in the house…well kind of. Our theme this week at RCS is to use superheroes! We are supporting breast cancer month and all of those real live superheros that battle a disease or personal hardship each and every day! We salute you. We want to see your projects that salute the superheros you love, fictional or real!
I had a bit of a struggle with this challenge until I went to trusty ol Pinterest and found a great source of inspiration. I found a great card to case, and I of course cannot find where it was I got it from, so if it looks familiar and you know who the source is, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!
In a unique step for me, almost my whole card was made using just cardstock. Only a small strip of DP was used. I hope you like it and please, come and play along with us!
I’m a day late with this post. Sorry about that. Lots of home stuff to deal with. Our new challenge is up at Use Your Stuff and we are talking food and drink. This is a great easy challenge to play along in.
I created this fun layout about a trip to the Maple Leaf Pub in London England. A great place for Canadians to hang out and get a little taste of home!
I used some Hot Off the Press DP that I have had for pretty much forever for this layout. The journal card is from Sn@p and there are a couple types of leaves, some punched ones using some bits of left over cardstock which I then stamped with a script as well as some paper ones that I picked up at Michaels. I also added in just a few brads as well. I hope you like it and will come and play along with us.

It was a sad day when Robin Williams left this earth. My comedic hero and the only person who could really make me laugh so hard I could pee and cry at the same time! I was so sad to hear that he had died. I honestly think we will never see a comedic genius like his again and the world has lost such a tender soul. We could all use more laughter in our lives and to see such a candle extinguished makes my heart sad.
At Red Carpet Studio this week we are paying tribute to Robin, by challenging you to be inspired by the man or his movies/television career.
We want to see you projects that had a Robin influence on you. He had such a full career that there are so many to draw your inspiration from.
I chose Happy Feet for my inspiration. A wonderful film that I enjoy watching with my son and always puts a song in my heart and a smile on my face.
I always thought that this penguin from the Creative Critters cartridge was kinda cute. After I cut him out, I just outlined him a bit with some broken lines to make him stand out more. The DP is just from my stash and I added some crackle accents to the balloons for a little added texture. The sentiment is from Stampin Up. I hope you like it and I do hope you will play along with us this week.
A child is born……………..
It’s been a long time since I’ve done a post that wasn’t for a DT assignment. I’ve been using a lot of sketches lately for my projects and I got my email this am that Tuesday Morning Sketches has a new sketch up.
So here’s what I made.
The DP is from MME (Lost and Found Christmas). I had this glitter paper that I’ve been hoarding forever to use with the stars. The image is from my stash. I’ve had it forever and I’m trying to use them up this season. I colored the image with my Copics. I hope you like it.
