My Mind's Eye October Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone. Here's my take on My Mind's Eye October Sketch Challenge.  I used paper and brads from the 'Collectable' line as well as washi tape from 'The Sweetest Thing' line. The 'I Love Cows' tag came from a t-shirt I bought that weekend. Staples helped hold the flags and bakers twine down. Some Dylusions spray from Ranger and machine stitching completed the page. Below are some close ups. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.       Michelle

Creative Scrappers Sketch #253

Hey everyone. Here's my layout based on Creative Scrappers sketch #253. When my daughter was finished this particular dressage test, her horse Hugo also decided to salute at the end. It was quite funny. I used Teresa Collins 'He Said, She Said' collection along with some of their stickers. The brads were from Basic Grey and the spray ink was from Ranger. Below are some close ups. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.       Michelle

Creative Scrappers Sketch # 252

Hey everyone. Here is my take on Creative Scrappers #252 sketch. The pictures were taken by my niece one afternoon. I saw them on Facebook and asked if I could scrap them. I used My Mind's Eye 'Collectable' paper and the matching brads. I fussy cut the flowers and then rolled a stylus along the under side to make them pop a bit. It's hard to believe but I only used one sheet of pattern paper for this layout. The fabric Thickers were from American Crafts. Some stitching, bling and splatters completed the page. Some close ups are below. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.             Michelle

Cavendish Music Festival

Hey everyone. Here's a layout I did for a class at Shabby Shutters . I used Simple Stories 'Say Cheese'
collection. What a fun paper line to use. Too bad I didn't have Disney pictures. Instead I decided to scrapbook the pictures I have from the Cavendish Music Festival in PEI. What a time we had. The entertainment was awesome. This is the first of 3 layouts I will be doing. I also used the brads from the collection as well as some wooden stars from Studio Calico. I absolutely love these little things!!!
I added some splatters and stitching as well. The tickets were cut out from a piece of paper from the line and the viewfinder was cut out using Tim Holtz's die from Sizzix. I first covered a piece of chipboard with glue and then scrunched up some old tissue patterns on the chipboard. I then let it dry before cutting it out. Cool technique. The top of the layout is just strips of paper layered on top of one another. The inspiration for this layout came from a layout seen in Creating Keepsakes Sept/Oct 2013 by Shelly Jacquet. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.    ~Michelle
