I wrote in an earlier post that I would use the Moxxie "Road To Recovery" line three times. I made 2 cards with it last month and today is the 3rd time. It is an art journal layout.
As I said before, Recovery can be anything. Getting back on your feet after a job loss. A sickness. So many things can fit this line. I personally have been on a journey for 9 years and it isn't over yet. It never will be over. Not all illnesses can be cured. Some show you right away what the end of the journey will be so you have to make the most of your journey while you can. Journey's in general are always evolving. Sometimes writing it out on an art journal page is the best thing to do.
I started with Life's Gifts paper and adhered it to my journal. This paper has lines on it, like notebook paper, and an awesome saying "This Journey has not been a gift, but it has shown me what the gifts in my life really are." I sprayed blue Dylusions ink on the pages and let them dry. I wrote the saying on a die cut that goes with the set and adhered it to the page. I cut out one of the circles from the Journey paper and adhered it to the page. I loved that it said "My Journey" on it. I also added the circle die cut and a border die cut on the right, and the flourish die cut on the left. The circle flowers are die cuts that I wrinkled and inked and stacked. I finished off this layout with doodles. I always doodle when I make an art journal layout. There is doodling everywhere. That is a problem I have. I can't stop adding more doodles and details!! I used a Pitt Pen small for all of the doodles.
I wrote "This is MY journey and I can travel it anyway I want".
Hi all, happy day!! jen t. here. I am stopping by today to share a fun mini album i made. I call it a flip paper bag mini album because it is made from paper bags and then when you get to the middle you flip it to see the other half, one side baby boy and the other baby girl.(you know, kind of like those story books that are 2 in 1 ) So i used that idea to make this mini for my friend who is having twins- a boy and girl so she could either put her sonograms pics or new pics on the album and in the pockets. For the paper I used, the Wee Ones collection is perfect for this project.
To start for this album, i kept the paperbags the full size. I then cut and trimmed the patterned paper to size only folding one paper bag 3/4 of the way (to make my middle) so that all pages front of that folded one are girl and all pages after the folded one are boy. I then took diecuts, stickers and scraps of my patterned paper left to make a couple tags and make framed pages as for photos to be accented by them later. I then, hole punched two holes thru all the bags and threaded ribbon thru it to bind it together. I then, embellished with my enamel dots and a couple plastic rocking horses to add simple interest to the mini.

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!! Jen t.
Previously I made a page for my cousin Alicia using MOXXIE's Paws N Claws line. The line features cats & dogs and yet I made it neutral. I wanted to try it again, but this time using the cat theme. I used another pic of my cousin Alicia for her graduation album. This pic came from her Facebook page (love that kids post stuff for us to use now a days).
This playful pic of her with kitty whiskers and nose just begged for the Paws N Claws line. Look how great the rub-on of the kitty is (these are high quality rub-ons unlike SOME that bite).
And for a little fun touch, I had to add a cat scratch. To create, I cut with an Exacto Knife then just wiggled and wiggled the knife in the cut to rough it up and give it distressed definition.
Who's on vacation? Anyone going somewhere tropical? Maybe you're like me and dreaming of a beautiful, ocean getaway?
Well, at least the weather here in the Midwest is cooperating for a "tropical" feel, lots of humidity and plenty of heat! But no matter, I will sip a fruity drink in the air conditioning and let my hair frizz and put together a tropical paradise layout.
Ms Luau is a fun layout using Moxxie Paradise Found papers and stickers.
Instead of photos inside the filmstrip, I added small patterned paper. It's a subtle detail that makes a nice border.
I added a lot of clusters, shells, flowers, and these really fun stickers that came with the paper line.
And lastly, the alphas were perfect for using in my title.
Look at these gorgeous, happy women, I will drink pineapple juice to that!
Howdy there! It's Renee from Scrap Owl with today's Moxxie Muse project. Hope you like it!!
A friend of mine just had his first child and his WHOLE family is beyond thrilled! Facebook has been filled with photos of this newest little munchkin, and for good reason, he's adorable. But, what's the first thing this scrap addict thinks? "Whoa, you're going to need a brag book!"
I used the Moxxie Child's Play collection as the foundation for this little brag book and added in a few of the embellishments from the Moxxie Busy Boy collection. I also used the Top Dog Dies Signature Antique Die to cut the covers and pages of the album. To do the binding, I used my Zutter (I just love it!)
You Can't Rub It The Wrong Way
In addition to using my beloved foam tape to add dimension to some of the die cuts and stickers, I also used rub-ons to balance the book. The rub-ons create a professionally stamped look, without the mess of ink!
I had a horrible experience with rub-ons in the past, but Moxxie's rub-ons have been a pleasure to work with. They stick only when you rub them on the page and not when they simply touch the paper. This means NO EXTRA BITS from surrounding designs that brush up against your project. Using rub-ons has become quick and easy, and garner amazing results.
The Scrappy Wrap Up
I can't wait to get this little brag book in the mail and on its way to the new momma. The Moxxie Child's Play and Busy Boy collections are a perfect mix of primary colors for this fun loving family. I know putting the album together is just the half the fun and getting to see the photos inside makes it complete, but I had a blast mixing and matching between these two collections.
Stay Scrappy My Friends,
Do you make albums for others? What was your favorite? Let us know in the comments, and go ahead... brag a little!!
