Our challenge is up at Use Your Stuff this week, a popular theme of flowers.  Good thing I’ve been working with the Moonstruck collection this week from Pink Paislee.  It has tonz of flowers!

Here is my layout for this week! This is all Pink Paislee except for the Thickers which are from American Crafts and match this collection just beautifully! I hope you enjoy it and will play along with us on the blog. We can’t wait to see what you create!

I killed a kit!

When I was at crop & create a couple of weeks ago, I got a kit when I attended Vicki Boutin’s cluster class.  It was just a small kit, made up mostly of the Moonstruck collection from Pink Paislee.  I finally put that puppy to bed.

Besides the 3 layouts ( 1 Single & 1 double from the class) I managed to get in another single layout and 4 cards.  I probably could have stretched another one or two cards as I have a few die cuts and some of the rub-ons left and one 3.5 x 5 strip of paper! LOL However, I called it a day and figured I got the just of it. 🙂

I will be sharing the projects over the next week, so here is a card that I made, which I put together for the My Favorite Things sketch challenge this week.

I did add some extra sequins for my card just to bring in some more of that gold from the rub on at the top. The alphas came with the kit as well and they are American Crafts.

I hope you like it!

UYS Challenge #257 Spring is in the Air!

Morning all!  I am fresh-ly back from an amazing weekend spent with the uber-talented ladies of Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine and their 2nd annual Crop & Create Calgary.  What an amazing time and the love and inspiration these ladies share with us is just incredible, not to mention their AMAZING sponsors!

Today for our Spring is in the Air Challenge on the Use Your Stuff blog I want to share a layout that I created over the weekend in Vicki Boutin’s Cluster’s, Bubbles and Layers, Oh My! Class.  In this class, Vicki walked us through some fun techniques for creating little clusters and adding dimension with layers and (your friend) foam dots!  We used an amazing kit of papers and embellishments from Pink Paislee’s Moonstruck collection.  This collection is not normally colors that I work with but after creating some amazing layouts I really do love it!

This is the single layout that we created and I thought that those beautiful fussy cut flowers are a perfect indicator of spring.  We used an awesome technique with black paint and dishsoap – blowing bubbles (so much fun!) that you can see on the white cardstock layer.

This layout also used a bunch of rub ons from the collection (I had forgotten how much fun rub ons can be) as well as some of the ephemera pack!

Woohoo! We got to see and play with some of  these at C&C and they are freaking fantastic!

Besties!

It’s a new challenge day at Red Carpet Studio and I am hosting this week~  My Challenge is based on a movie that I love

MV5BMjA5MTEzMzE4MF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDAzMTUyMg@@._V1_SY317_CR6,0,214,317_AL_

In this 1964 beloved musical, pompous phonetics professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) is so sure of his abilities that he takes it upon himself to transform a Cockney working-class girl into someone who can pass for a cultured member of high society. His subject turns out to be the lovely Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn), who agrees to speech lessons to improve her job prospects. Higgins and Eliza clash, then form an unlikely bond — one that is threatened by an aristocratic suitor (Jeremy Brett).
THE CHALLENGE: CREATE A “GIRLY” PROJECT WITH LOTS OF LAYERS.

I still have a lot of product left from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan set that I won a long time ago.  I thought that it would be a great set to use for this challenge.  It has all kinds of fun embellishments and paper.  I also really love the colors.  I used a sketch that I found on Pinterest.  It’s from Scrap Paper Scissors!  A great little sketch!

Ladies Man!

Hello everyone! I am late posting this due to a very busy weekend on my part. Saturday I had a wonderful time at my crop for NSD!  It was so much fun and I managed to get a few pages done.  Then today I took my son to Heritage Park for their annual A Day out With Thomas and he had such a fun time!!!

Ok….down to work….Our new challenge is up at Red Carpet Studio.  We are basing it on the movie Something Borrowed.

THE CHALLENGE:  Create a project or layout using a “borrowed” sketch from our partner for this challenge “Stick It Down Challenge Blog.”

So, for my challenge I used this sketch of theirs, which I really really liked.

Here is the layout that I created based on the sketch.  I cracked open my Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection from American Crafts, which I won a couple of years ago.  I had forgotten how pretty this collection is and I just love how this layout turned out.  This is my little guy on his first trip to Cuba and the wonderful women that fell in love with him on the plane.

I hope you really like it and I really hope that you will play along with us this week.

In my ever ongoing quest to use up my stash, I came across a birthday kit that I had bought ages ago from Hot off The Press…it has a lot of fun papers and art to go with it.  I colored him with my copics and did a little paper piercing around the edges.  I added some doodlebug brads, american craft ribbon and basic grey bling.
