Hello! Samantha here today with with a 2 page layout featuring Moxxie's new release Basketball.
We love to play basketball, so I have lots of photos of us shooting hoops. Two page layouts are a great way to get a lot of photos all in one place.
To make this layout come together easily, I worked with the Basketball title already printed on the paper. To make the basketball player pop a little more, I added a "real" basketball from the stickers.
I cut the PLAYTIME title with my Silhouette Cameo. I also layered a few stickers over the photos.
Framing the photos with some card stock and patterned paper adds a finished look to the layout.
When you have a passion, it's wonderful to find friends to celebrate that passion with. I'm guessing if you are reading this, then you too are passionate about Scrapbooking.
I met a group of women on scrapbook.com about 10 years ago and we became online friends. WOw- 10 years!! About 7 years ago, we talked about traveling to meet in person at a crop. The central local seems to be Michigan and Ohio. We made it happen. I can't attend every year (more like every other due to the cost of flights) but when I get to go, it's like I've known them forever. That is the joy of sharing something so personal like scrapbooking- something that celebrates family, friends, and every part of our self we want to remember and treasure and share.
We might get a little rowdy!
MOXXIE created a funky new line called Queen of the CROP. If you go to crops or just want to showcase some fun creativity, check out this line.
This page has a splash of black mist and uses the back of the scan code strips. It's simple but fun. I adore that purple paper!
For the next page, I used the size of the journaling cards to pic the size of my photos. But I had so many photos, I couldn't get them all on one page....so I made a book on the page. Simply using scrap card stock as a base, I made a fold out for more pics and those cool journal cards. I added a few paint rings and sequins (for that royal touch). I like how there is a scrapbook on a page of scrapbooking!!
Crop- open to show more!
And one of the happy accidents that I simply adore is cutting out crowns and using them as journal strips to write names on, because we all want to be Queens of the CROP!

Today's sketch challenge brings you these fun Flip Book covers from Muse Renee Robbins
You can see on this first one she stuck closer to the sketch design then she did on this 2nd one.
But I really like how she used the sequins in place of the banners on this one. Renee used large 3D Zots to pop up the title stickers so the recipients can slide their pictures in behind it. Magical Moments was the perfect line for these cute flip books.
Amelia enjoyed the sketch so much she used it a 2nd time with the wonderful Winterland line. I love all of the snowflakes she punched out of the vellum and let them do twice the work for her by adding them along the top of the pages also.
Now lets see what you come up with using this sketch. Follow this link Here and link to WIN!
We have 2 more projects for you, but they will wait until Monday. Because tomorrow we have something special for you. Our New Winter release Blog Hop!!
Amelia extended elements from the design across to a second page to give it a continuous flow from one side to the other. She then did some elaborate fussy cutting using Ice Skating and blinged it up with a bit of stickles. I love the skater she cut for the center of the left side.
Yes, you can even make a card from a 12x12 sketch. Really the possiblities are endless. JenT did such a fabulous job dressing this adorable little snowman from Winterland for the cold. I love the beautiful snowflake she added and the dimension is amazing.
You can see that she used the snowman twice for the layering 3D effect. So clever.
You can link your creation using this sketch at our Link page here. Come back tomorrow for more fantastic projects. ~Moxxie Ange
Who's busy scrapping all of those memories from Halloween? I know I am! It's one of those things that if you don't get started, you'll never finish. This year, my hubby and I visited Six Flags Great America's Fright Fest with some friends. While there we came across the Attraction Graveyard. Since I have been going to Six Flags for so many years, I remember many of these rides. Actually, I remember when many of these rides were unveiled! There were so many that hit home with me, I ended up with a double page layout.
I used each of Moxxie's Halloween lines to capture these memories. The foundation is made up of All Hallow's Eve Nevermore and Midnight Dreary Dead on Arrival b-side. I also used the All Hallow's Eve Gone Batty b-side with a Tim Holtz embossing folder. As you can see, it came out great and really adds to the layout. Finally, in order to lighten the layout up a bit, I used the Zombie Attack Cutouts b-side to layer the embossed Gone Batty.
As I said, I have been going to Great America for quite some time. But, I was surprised to see that I actually had a photo of myself riding one of the rides found in the graveyard. Talk about scary!
In order to dress up the layout, I used a variety of embellishments from both the All Hallow's Eve and the Midnight Dreary collections. These two lines work together perfectly!
Hope you like the layout and that you have time to get your Halloween memories scrapped!
Hey Mickie, You're so fine, you're so fine- you blow my mind.
MOXXIE has some great lines- both new ones and older ones. I found this Magical Moments line that is PERFECT for the Disney pictures that I'm currently scrapping. They made it so easy. I scrapped this double pager in less than an hour.
Ask your local scrapbook retailer if they have MOXXIE in stock. It's so easy to use and packs a punch with great colors.
I wanted to do a little something different today and share a sketch with you. Not only did I create a 2 page layout from the sketch, but I created 2 layouts from the sketch to show how small changes can make lots of layouts that look quite different (even if you use the same paper collection!).
Here's the sketch:
Here's my layout:
It's that time of year: back to school!
I used the sketch and Moxxie's Brainiac to scrap my 1st grader's first day of school. I am absolutely in love with this school themed collection. There are a wide range of colors and patterns that manage to be cohesive yet extremely versatile.
I tend to see (and use) sketches as a starting off point. They're more of a suggestion than an exact blueprint. A way to get my creativity going. Even when I create the sketch, I don't follow exactly.
For this layout, I kept pretty close to the sketch, but changed up the layers on the title and embellishments by the journaling a bit. I also changed things up by mirroring my green and orange patterned papers instead of using all green for the background and all orange for the photo base layer.
Want to see how a few changes to the sketch can make a completely different looking layout? Head on over to my blog, Taylor Stamped, to see a second layout using the sketch. Here's a little sneak peek of that layout (yup, I even have similar photos, but the layout looks really different!).
If you create something with the sketch, I'd love to see it. Just link it up here on the blog, or post a picture of it to Moxxie's Facebook page so I can ooh and aah over it!
We are SO excited to show you our new lines in action! First up is Muse Samantha with this gorgeous 2 page Autumn Glory layout.
Come back tomorrow to see each new line featured in our Summer Release Blog hop!
I'm so excited to be sharing my 2 page Pumpkins & Corn Maze layout featuring Moxxie's Autumn Glory. This is such a gorgeous collection, that I couldn't wait to use it!
The colors in this collection are so rich, that photos just don't do it justice!
One of my favorite things about this collection are the alphabet stickers. I love how they're multi colored. It feels like putting pretty autumn leaves on your paper in alphabet form!
Of course, I had to layer up a few phrase stickers.
I created a journaling tag from a strip of unused pattern paper. I used a fine point journaling pen and a ruler to draw straight lines to journal on (because my handwriting look a lot better when I have straight lines to write on!).
Don't you just love those rich fall colors. Perfect for pumpkins, leaf piles, or corn maze photos!
I love mixing and matching the Moxxie collections. Honestly? I usually don't mix and match papers across collections that often, but I seem to be doing it all the time lately with Moxxie's collections. Today I'm mixing Down on the Farm and Child's Play for my Playtime on the Farm layout.
We go to my in-laws almost every Sunday for lunch. When the weather's nice, my boys head right outside to play. We love finding the kittens (there are always kittens in the spring, summer, and fall).
My youngest nephew hasn't quite figured out how to gently love the kittens...but he's working on it (disclaimer: no kittens were hurt in the taking of these photos).
I used a combination of stickers, journaling cards, and die cuts from both collections to tie the papers from both collections together.
For the "Some Playtime!" tag, I covered up the word "pig" from the "Some Pig" label sticker from Down on the Farm with a "Playtime" die cut from Child's Play. Layering stickers and die cuts up is a great way to customize your titles.
Do you like to mix and match collections? We'd love to see what you've done. Just post a picture on Moxxie's Facebook page!
