Hello! Samantha here today to share 1 sketch and 2 layouts from that sketch. Here is the sketch I created and will be working with for my layouts today:
I thought it would be fun to show you how versatile sketches can be. I often say that just changing the paper collection makes the layout completely different. Today, I'm going to take that one step further to show that even if you use the exact same paper collection, you can end up with very different layouts.
I have pictures of both of my boys with their class for this past year's homecoming prep rally parade. Choosing papers was as easy as reaching for Grid Iron. For my first layout, instead of creating a title, I used a strip of Grid Iron that had one on it for me already!
My second layout uses the same sketch and Grid Iron, but choosing different papers within the collection can give you a very different looking layout.
The biggest change I made to the sketch for this layout was using a vertical photo. I even repeated the use of the "Team Spirit" stickers as an accent piece.
Do you use many sketches when you scrap? If you decide to use this one, I'd love to see what you do with it!
I am so excited to put up my fall decorations, to take walks in the crisp cool air and watch the leaves fall! That is why I love this sayin on the sticker sheet.- Every leaf speaks to me, fluttering from the autumn tree -. So I just had to add it to a card.
I made a 6 x 6 using the backside of the football paper from the grid iron collectionand then cut another and glued them back to back so the same pattern would be on the inside too. next, I took different strips of patterned paper from the autumn glorycollection and a bar code strip where i layered and distressed them . Then, I picked out the saying sticker and added that to the leaf patterned paper. I then, gathered a piece of burlap ribbon and added a flower I made using the grid iron paper to anchor the card. next, I inked and distressed around the card and then added stick-on pearls pretty it up some more.
lastly, I took a journal card from the grid iron collection and added it to the inside to have area to write a note. thanks for stopping by and happy creating!! jen t.
In my previous blog post I talked about using the "B side" of paper and trying to inspire crafters to use all parts of a piece of paper. In this post I just want to remind crafters to think out of the box of a 12 x 12 sheet of paper.
Today I made an envelope to coordinate with my previous card. I made this envelope with Moxxie's Grid Iron paper, yes, football paper.
I wanted to keep a touch of the football, because it is a Fall card and football is a very Fall thing. It's cheeky.
By adding very special embellishments and paper that coordinates, like Moxxie Autumn Glory, it loses all sportiness but leaves a beautiful creation that can be given to anyone.
So, the next time your looking for some inspiration, really look at the stuff that surrounds you. Look at its colors, or the backside, or upside down and see what you come up with.
Hi, it's Joan, and today I'm sharing three fall cards I made. I love the new Moxxie papers and stickers and once I got started making cards, I couldn't stop!
The first card is from the Brainiac line. I layered two of the papers (Mathlete B side & School Gear B side) onto a black card base. Next, I die cut a label from the Bookworm paper and pop dotted the "Reading is Knowledge" sticker onto it. The final touch was the "Head of the Class" sticker that I added to the top of the card. Both stickers are on the Brainiac cardstock sticker sheet.
The second card is made using the new Grid Iron collection. It is a gatefold card. I added the striped Quarterback paper and also two of the football players from the same paper. The Coach sticker and the football players sticker from the cardstock sticker sheet were mounted on cardstock and were attached under the football player images.
My third card is from the Autumn Glory line. I die cut the background from the Foliage in Flight paper and die cut two leaves from the Season's Beauty paper. I crumpled the leaves a bit to add texture and pop dotted them to the card. Finally, I added the "Harvest Blessings" stickers, one on top of each leaf.
Making cards is extra fun with these wonderful new Moxxie collections! ~Joan
