Hi all! Renee from Scrap Owl back with a new layout today using the beautiful Moxxie Winery collection just released at CHA. Although my layout doesn't include any wine (a crime in itself), I loved using the vintage feel that the collection has to showcase the pictures of a recent visit to the American Picker's store in LaClaire, Iowa.
For the foundation of the layout I used the b-side of the Moxxie Winery Aged to Perfection patterned paper. Obviously we've all seen wooden slat paper before. It seems to be a scrapbooker's staple, but I love this take from Moxxie. It isn't a wooden floor pattern, instead it's the aged look of a wine barrel. The slats are closer together, darker, and more detailed with subtle scratches and imperfections. It made it easy to pull off the "nailed look" that I was going for with some of my tags.
In addition to the items from the new Moxxie Winery collection, I used a stitched pattern from the Moxxie Brown Element Rub-On. I love how quickly I could add a stitched element to my layout - especially given that I can't sew for the life of me. I even put the stitching on a little crooked because I knew that if I had really done the stitching, it would have a least been a little cock-eyed!
For my tags I used a punch to quickly cut out a few tag shapes from the Moxxie Winery Fine Wine and Winery Cutouts patterned papers. From there I attached the swirls from the Moxxie Winery Stickers and outlined them with a thin black marker to make sure they didn't get lost on the background. The "Family" pennant and the stickers that create my "Tour" cluster are also from the Moxxie Winery Stickers sheet.
Like I said, even thought my layout doesn't include wine, the Moxxie Winery collection had the perfect tools to accent this pictures from this trip. It was so fun to see so many of the items that I had watched the Pickers buy on their show, and now I have this layout to help me remember the visit. I just love scrapping!

Well, hello there my fellow Moxxie maniacs! Renee from Scrap Owl back with you again to share an awesome technique with an incredible line.
As you can see, this is a very "manly man" layout. To be honest with you, I HATE doing "manly man" layouts. I want sequins, bling, and pretties on my layouts. Man layouts always seem so blah, blah, blah to me. But, when my scrappy buddy Kerri showed me pics of her firefighter hubby splashing through the mud during a bike race, I blurted out, "I have paper for that!" Please tell me that I'm not the only one that gets excited when I find pictures that match my paper!
So, with my "manly man" pictures in hand, and this amazing new Fun Run line from Moxxie, I got to work trying to avoid the usual blahness of my man layouts.
To jazz this one up a little, I used my Xacto knife to cut out a curvy shape out of the Got Mud patterned paper that would fit my pictures. Then I used my scissors to distress the inside of the shape. Finally, I inked the distressed edges with brown ink that blended nicely with the original color of the page. Moxxie's paper soaks up the ink so well, and the white core allows for a variety of shades of ink. This really helps provide a sense of dimension on the layout.
For the foundation of this layout I used the new Moxxie Just Run patterned paper. The a-side of this patterned paper has an amazing gradient that picked up the colors of the grass perfectly. I positioned my photos and then attached a variety of elements from the Moxxie Fun Run Sticker sheet.
I love the way that this layout came together! It certainly isn't a boring old, blah "man layout". Hopefully you like it as well and may even be motivated to tear up the inside of some of your own paper!
Stay Scrappy My Friends!

Here's a fun Booth picture with Faith on the left there.
And the entire line.
Baptism Day by Muse Wendi Robinson is a great use of the Faith line. She did a lot of layering and distressing. I love the big banners she cut to highlight her photo and the stitching, especially in the circle for the title.
Baptism by Muse Renee Robbins has a very different look from the previous layout but still using many of the same papers and elements (or other sides of them). I love all the layers that she added and feel like her yellows pop in all the right places.
For the next few days we are going to showcase some of the fantastic products just revealed at the #chashow in CA. If you stopped by the Moxxie booth #2859 you may seen some of these fantastic projects!
First we have this adorable Necklace Muse Rebecca Price made for her daughter using this fun line!
Isn't it adorable! What scrappy girl wouldn't LOVE that?!
Next up is this fun Offering lo from Muse Renee Robbins. Renee got a lot layers on her layout and added some real depth using dimension and the bold colors from the line. I love the fun touch the sequins add.
Who wouldn't love to take this cute little gift bag home with them from a crop?! Muse Rebecca Price spruced this bag up with all the fun papers from the Queen of the Crop line and didn't stop there. She used the Cutouts paper and cardstock stickers to really bring it home. This little a bag is a prize all by itself!
I hope you enjoyed seeing Queen of the Crop today. Come back tomorrow, we're showcasing TWO of our New lines! ~Moxxie Ange

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!!
Our Holiday challenge ends tomorrow. Have you entered?
Renee from Scrap Owl is back with you today to share some over 40 birthday fun!
When I was younger I used to love my birthday. It was my favorite holiday of the year! But, if you are anything like me, you have come to see your birthday as a reminder of why that face in the mirror has a few more wrinkles and lines than it did when you were 21. With this in mind, my friend Tamara at Something Photography has been offering her own spin on the first birthday cake smash!
Of course I used Moxxie's Very Merry Unbirthday to bring this layout to life. It is the perfect blend of bold, bright, and fun to frame these photos. The foundation of the layout is Moxxie's Very Merry Unbirthday I'm Late. I used elements from the Very Merry Unbirthday Die Cuts to create three embellishment clusters.
Don't you just love the way she changes the numbers around? LOL!
I layered the main photo in order to draw attention to it. I used the b-side of the Moxxie Very Merry Unbirthday I'm late as the base layer, added a cloth square from my scrap stash for some fringe, and then added the a and b sides of the Moxxie Very Merry Unbirthday Curiouser patterned paper. Each is displayed at different widths or angles in order to provide some organized chaos.
There is also some fringe under the smaller pictures on the left side of the layout. I believe that fringe is going to be a huge trend in 2015 so this won't be the last time you see it. Adding fringe is super easy - just grab some fabric and fray it. A little fringe or a lot of fringe is up to you.
We have a fun Holiday challenge going on! Find it here.
Sometimes memories are so special that they require more than one page to tell the full story. Prom is certainly one of those times! It's a time where every little lady gets to be a princess.
Vicki had pre-prom photos taken of her dress and the photographer had a great time playing with her unique style. Tamara Fischer of Something Photography keyed in on Vicki's Converse Allstars and used them to transform Vicki into a 21st century Cinderella.
I used Moxxie's Night to Remember to capture this beautiful moment. I used rub ons from the Night to Remember collection as my journalling. For a little more bling, I added sequins to the stars.
As an additional decorative touch, I included an up and coming trend - fringe! The tassels are made from embossing thread folded over a small bit of jewelry wire and anchored with brads.
I love the motion and life that the tassels add to the layout. To learn about this and other up coming trends, head on over to the show notes for episode 42 of the Scrap Owl Podcast.
So, what do you think? Loving the tassels? Loving the layout? I'd LOVE to hear your thoughts! Let us know in the comments below.
