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!
The layout I created for today's post is in honor of Earth Day. This celebration is on April 22 (today!) - a day when people share their joy of nature and the Earth's environment. It's a day when many people plant flowers and trees, clean up trash on roadsides and in parks and share ways to promote recycling.
The title was made with Moxxie's black alphabet stickers. The word strip "Keep the Beauty" was done with a label maker. Finally, I added blue enamel dots in two sizes and backed the page onto black cardstock.
The purple crocuses in the photo are so beautiful! I hope that on Earth Day, and every day, we will help to "keep the beauty" of our planet.
Ange here today and I am SO excited to show you one of our newest lines!!!
Today I'm going to share with you a project I made using the brand NEW All Star Baseball line!
Look at this!
Don't you just LOVE those papers?
And after you're done scrapping some totally rocking baseball pages you can flip your scraps over and go with some fun 4th of July or patriotic pages. This line is AWESOME!!
In my family we do a lot of softball and baseball so I was ecstatic to get these new lines and jumped right into creating this layout:
I started with Play Ball as my base adding inked barcode strips from Play Ball and All Star Cutouts and the bat and ball strip from the cutouts paper also. Then I added mist to the page and started arranging my photos on the page.
I had a lot of fun using the cutouts sheet for my photo mats. The ball stitching along my main photo was cut off a journaling card.
A title is really easy to put together with the awesome sticker sheet!
Some of my favorite stickers on the sheet are the chevrons. They are great for pointing out things you might miss just glancing at the photo. Like the ball in my main photo or the ball in my son's catcher mitt in this photo.
The red alphas are perfect for this line. I love the way you can put them down and then move them a little if you need (like when you forget a t ;) )
Ask your favorite local scrap store when they're getting the NEW All Star Baseball line in from Moxxie.
If you haven't noticed I have completely fallen in LOVE with the Fun Run collection. I'm just drawn to all the bright, fun colors in the line. My cousin talked me into doing a race this year, actually my first ever race. I've never done anything before, not even a 5K and we signed up to do a 10K. I trained hard and was super excited, but then ended up tweaking my knee two days before. I was totally bummed out, but I wasn't going to let that stop me, so I went ahead and did the race anyways. I am sooo glad I did, it was such an amazing experience, and I got a cool medal too.
I LOVED the quote from the cutouts paper and decided to add it and cut it up and have it as the main focus of the page, since that is truly how I felt. I added my title around the 10K sticker:
I also fussy cut part of the banner on the running girl cut out, and layered it over the paper, along with adding some arrow sticker accents:
So if there's something you've never done before and want to give a try, go for it!! Age shouldn't stop anyone from trying anything, its just a number.
Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!
These juicy colors on MOXXIE's Fun Run line called for a fun picture. Here is my friend Sarah being a cool mom and escorting her daughter Hailee and 2 friends to an Usher concert. I love that they made custom shirts for the event. Now that's cool!
The paint splats on the multi color paper look just like the colors on their shirts. The swosh gives it movement. You might notice that the curve of the swosh is the cut portion of the purple paper. I liked the organic line, so I kept it for the purple. I also misted the background for that extra little pop of color. The speech bubbles are colored felt.
Hello! Samantha here today to share a layout with you. Spring is in the air and so I thought it would be lots of fun to use Moxxie's Springtime to scrap a few photos that my niece took of my boys. She was watching them for me one day, and they made some really fun bird feeders.
The sweet, cheery birds from Springtime were just right to scrap about their bird feeder making exploits. My boys will only let me get away with the smallest amounts of pink and purple on their layouts, so picked out the pieces from Springtime that were predominantly blue, green, or orange to frame my photos.
This little birdie journaling card was just right for my layout, but it was surrounded in purple, so I trimmed around the the very edge of the card (and the bird's tail).
I love the little chevrons that you can find on many of Moxxie's sticker sheets. They always seem to be just the right embellishment for a project. Here I also added a few enamel dots to them as well.
Have you used Moxxie's springtime yet? I'd love to see what you've been creating with it!
I'm loving this new SPRINGTIME line from MOXXIE. It is so bright and cheerful. This picture is of my dear friend Sarah with her 2 kiddos. Aren't they all just lovely. This fresh photo reminded me of a happy day, so I scrapped it in a happy way.
I used the book verse, "I'll love you forever, I'll like your for always, As long as I'm living, My baby you'll be." Perhaps it was seeing these kids who were just babies a moment ago looking so grown up that inspired that quote. I had fun mixing the MOXXIE letters with hand journaling and a cork heart for interest in the title.
Here is a close up of my blingy flower too. For a touch of fun!
