XOXO


Hey everyone. Here's a layout based on Clique Kits November challenge and one of the November challenges at The Studio Challenges. The pattern paper, thickers, flair button, journaling cards and diecut all came from the Swan Lake November monthly kit from Clique Kits. The pattern paper and diecut were from Maggie Holmes Gather collection from Crate Paper. What a beautiful line!!! At The Studio Challenges, the challenge was to draw inspiration from a photo of a table setting. The photo reminded me of Thanksgiving, so I decided to do a layout of someone I was thankful for, my daughter. The soft colors also inspired me. Below are some close ups, the photo of the table setting and the sketch from Clique Kits. Thanks for stopping by.

Count Your Blessings


Hey everyone. Here's my take on Stuck?!Sketches November 15th sketch, as well as Creative Embellishment's November challenge. The pattern paper, diecuts and enamel dots used were all from Carta Bella's 'Autumn' collection. For the CE challenge I was inspired by the leaves and the colors in the photo. You also had to use wood, so I used wood veneer leaves and a heart from CE. Be sure to check out the blogs linked above. There's always tons of inspiration to be found. Below are some close ups, the sketch and inspirational photo. Thanks for stopping by.

Young, Wild & Free


Hey everyone. Here's my take on the November color palette at The Studio Challenges blog. The wood grain color that I used is quite a bit lighter and I wasn't able to incorporate the green :(  Hope that's OK. The pattern paper, cutouts, journalling cards and flair button are all from Clique Kits September Moon Child Kit. The wood veneer was from Studio Calico. Close ups and the color palette are below. Thanks for stopping by.

Beach Day


Hey everyone. Here's a page based on Creative Scrapper's November #300 sketch. I used We R Memory Keepers gorgeous 'Wildflower' collection. I absolutely love this line and couldn't wait to get my hands on it!!!! I used the 6x6 paper pad, sticker sheet and diecut pack and did a little fussy cutting with the flowers. Thanks for stopping by and make sure to check out CS's blog. There's a ton of inspiration to be found there.

Up, Up & Away


Hey everyone. Here's my take on Stuck?!Sketches November 1st sketch and the November stash challenge at Scrap Our Stash. The pattern paper, acetate alphas, chipboard buttons, snippets and metal clip were all from Basic Grey's 'Carte Postale' collection. The wood veneer stars were from Studio Calico. For the stash challenge I was inspired by the navy and yellow colors as well as the little flying characters on the book cover. You also had to use at least 3 stars on your layout.  Below are some close ups, the book cover inspiration photo and the sketch. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the blogs!!

Big Things


Hey everyone. Here's a layout based on the Bingo challenge this month at Kaiser Craft. It's a picture of my daughter and her big guy doing what they love best. The pattern paper and collectables are all from Kaiser Craft's 'Provincial' collection. The sketch I used happened to be from their August challenge. I was able to do two lines of the challenge. I used fussy cut, mist, flowers and collectables as well as quote, family traditions, gold and collectables. Thanks for stopping by.
