Good morning! I love the beauty of spring! Everything is just so beautiful. I especially love the tulips. I found a couple of pictures where my two beautiful little girls when they were 4 and 2 years old. I had found them outside smelling and playing with the tulips.
This layout is great for using all those spare scraps! I started out with my base with a sheet from the football line Grid Iron. Then as I was digging through my Springtime line I started to notice I had a bunch of little spare scraps, I decided to try to incorporate them. It was a lot of fun piecing it all together. I even used some of the Moxxie Alphas for the date.
I even loved adding little extra's here and there such as enamel dots, stickers & brads. My favorite was stitching the word Love on.
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!
Good Morning! Today I've got two very cute and fun cards to share with you! I paired two unlikely new Moxxie lines together for these cards.... Grid Iron & Tiny Dancer.
Pairing these two lines together made the cutest Easter cards! Here's the first one...
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the little bunny that I downloaded from Miss Kate Cuttables out of a sheet from Grid Iron, love the richness of that brown. Then I used a sheet from Tiny dancer to cut out the intricate egg. I tied a know in some ribbon and trimmed the ends and adhered it with a glue dot to the bunny. For the sentiment I used a stamp from a Stampin' Up! Stamp set- Just So Sayings and stamped it on a small piece of white cardstock that I cut the corners on to shape into a tag, punched a hole and threaded some linen thread through it then tied it onto the pink bow.
Want to see the next one? Ok, I won't tease you anymore. ;) Here's my 2nd card.
I used the scrap left behind from cutting out the bunny for the previous card to create this one. I layered it the pink cardstock that I used for my base and traced the bunny out and cut the shape out. I then adhered the brown layer on top of the pink, now my card front has a bunny shaped hole! ;) For the inside of the card I added a cute polka doted sheet from Tiny Dancer. Next, I added a little white pom-pom for the tail and tied a mini bow adhering it about where it's neck should be. Then I added 3 little enamel dots on the outside. Here's a look of the inside.
Just a little different but I love how cute and simple it turned out.
**I followed the directions on where to score and cut to create the box but did NOT begin to actually glue it all together until I had finished decorating it first!
I cut a strip of designer paper about 1/8" to a 1/4" smaller than back of the box and used my corner round edge punch and did a bit of distressing on it before I adhered it down to my box. Then I cut out a strip to wrap around the middle of the box part and distressed it a bit too. I tied together two small pieces of pink & brown bakers twine and stapled them down to the box. I punched out a cute little heart of Moxxie's Tiny Dancer line and layered on a Mambi sticker- love, using 3d-dots for dimension.
On the test tube measured around the test tube cut a strip of designer paper the length and width I needed. Leaving about 1/2" extra on the length to overlap. Before wrapping it around I found the middle of my strip punched a heart out and taped a small piece pink paper behind so the pink would peek through the punched out heart. Then I traced around it with a bronze Sharpie. Once I adhered the strip around the test tube I used some more pink & brown bakers twine to tie around.
Enter HERE for your chance to WIN a fun fall line!
Hi, it's Joan, and I'm here to share a scrapbook page about my daughter. She loved horses and was in a 4-H horse club for six years. She rode English and Western. We were at horse shows every week-end, all summer long. In this photo, she is barrel racing on her first horse, Paul.
For this page, I used three papers from Moxxie's new Grid Iron line, along with 100% Country from Western Round-up (the plaid paper). The large orange paper is from Autumn Glory. It's nice to mix and match papers from different lines and have them go together wonderfully!
I distressed the two photo mats by running my fingernail along the side of each paper. I ripped some spots and then inked with dark brown ink. Finally, I added some blue twine and silver metal dots to the page.
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.
That's it for today. We'll show full photos of the rest of the projects for your inspiration next weekend. Don't forget to play along with our Fall Challenge! Link up on this post. Here's one more look at the Prize!
