School Days are Here Again!

So.  It’s getting to be September.  Riley will be starting full day kindergarten, which is crazy!  It seems like yesterday he was just a baby!

Our challenge at Red Carpet Studio is to create a project based on the movie Billy Madison.

So the challenge this week is to create a project using some “back to school’ supplies.  It can be actual supplies, or things like ink, paint, stamps, coloring… Here is my project for you.. a little walk down memory lane for me.   I went old school and used a lot of UHU glue on this one..LOL  It’s a bit hard to tell but I also did some inking, and my journaling is in plain ol’ black pen :)

The rest of the DT has some wonderful projects for you and we hope you will play along with us!

 

Cake Rules!

As you read this, I am actually out camping in BC for a much needed holiday with my family :)

Our new challenge is up and running this week at Red Carpet Studio.  Based on one of my favorite movies of all time (no one makes movies like John Hughes did :( )

The challenge is to create a project with a birthday theme to it.  Surely an easy one this time around!  Here is what I have for you today.  Another fun layout of my favorite kiddo Riley on his first birthday!

For this layout I actually used the sketch provided by Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine’s monthly sketch challenge (which this month is provided by the ever talented Sue Sykes!).  I rotated the sketch for this layout.

A fun sketch!  I used some Kaisercraft and October Afternoon DP for this one.  I love all those decorative brads which worked perfectly for this layout (from MME).  The rest of my embellishments were from Michael’s, the $ store and my stash :)  I hope you will play along with our challenge on the Blog and don’t forget to try the sketch yourself and play upload to the CS blog!

At the Beach

Sorry.  I’m a day behind in posting this.  Our new challenge is up and running at Use Your Stuff this week.  Still celebrating summer our theme is At the Beach…we’re looking to see your fun beach-y projects.

Here’s a layout I did of Riley’s first time at the beach when we went to Cuba.  He tried to eat it. :)  Needless to say, we spent the rest of the time at the pool.  LOL

Kindness

Hello everyone! There’s a new challenge up at Use Your Stuff this week.  Our theme is Leaves!  Now that it is summer here, it’s nice to see the leaves green and bright on the trees!

For the challenge, I decided to go with an ATC.  I found some cute leaf paper and added a heat embossed sentiment.  The butterflies are a glittered chipboard that I bought at M’s.  I hope you like it and hope you will play along with us this week.

Monster Jam fun

So last year we took Riley to his first Monster Jam..oh did that boy have fun! He was in monster truck heaven.  He brought his Gravedigger monster truck to be signed by the drivers, which looked soooo small compared to the real Gravedigger :)

I thought I would use some of those pictures for a fun layout for Renee’s chipboard/wood veneer challenge at Use Your Stuff this week.  I’m sure we all have tonz of these in our stashes, I know I do!  I just can’t get enough of them actually.  So make sure you play along with us for this week’s challenge!

Canuck Day!

Hey there!  Well it is a long weekend here in Canada.  July 1st is our Canada Day!  Everyone is getting ready for backyard barbecues, block parties and lots of fun!  Our challenge this week at Red Carpet Studio ties in with the festivities in both Canada and the USA coming up.  It’s all about being patriotic.

Using this film as inspiration, we would love to see your projects about patriotism….the DT has come up with some great projects for you to check out.  As for me, here’s what I have for you!

20140628_151353I found this digital image online and I loved that it picked out phrases that represents a lot of Canada, us as a country and from our national anthem.  Of course hockey is in there! (I am sooo not a hockey fan).  I also did it in the traditional red and white national color and believe it or not, I actually found some maple leaf ribbon that had been waiting and waiting to be used.  I hope you like it and we look forward to your projects in our challenge this week.

 

Fun with Gelatos

So our new challenge at Use Your Stuff this week is all about texture.  What better way to show texture than working with gelatos, gesso and modelling paste.  Such was the things our make and take were made of recently at a Scrapshotz crop.

We made this wicked card!  I love the colors and that paste and stencil just made some awesome texture on this card.  I thought those pink butterflies cut out with the sizzix just perfectly made this card.

The gelatos were a lot of fun to play with and such fun bold colors.  I may have to get me some!

In the mean time, make sure you stop by the blog today and join in this week’s TEXTURE challenge.  The DT has got some great inspiration for you this week.
