SOC Design Team Layout-We Heart Selfies

February is already upon us and Love is in the air.  Don’t have a sweet heart no worries your layouts this month do not always have to romantic. Here is a layout with my mom titled We heart selfies! It still has a heart thing and it also gave me a chance to use a valentine themed kit.

Lets get started!

I split my cardstock to make a new background.  I wanted to bring in some of the faded black.

I coved the split of the cardstock with faux garland.  My sewing machine is in the shop so I used my white gel pen.

Lets embellish and wrap this layout up.

Add all the bits and bobs….layer away!

I doubled my titles to add more dimension, snuck in some washi and potty people.

I have a ton of these overlays and need to use them more.  I added a few more layered buts and a date stamp.

A cute addition! A zipper charm that says Mom.

Think about the things you love or your loved ones this month and Shine On!

Supplies: Glitz, Martha Stewart, Studio Calico, Silhouette

Toodles!

Documenting December-Journal Your Christmas Day 5

Here’s a look at Day 5:

It seems this Christmas has gotten away from me so no Christmas cards but I will make some fun tags.  This page shows a few examples.

I used Kraft paper which I love to wrap gifts in and used a large doily as a base layer.  Then  added the tags on top and stamped in the middle.  Added a diecut, flair and the scripture 1 John 5:11.

I edged the pre-printed tags, layered a doily held  with washi and added my wood embellishments.

I used some snow flake die cuts as layering accents and used the polka dot flag to add contrast.

Since Theresa Collins has envelopes and file folders with most of her collections I like to use them all to add notes and journaling.  Here I added a stamp.

Documenting December-Journal Your Christmas Day 3

I also like to have various size pages in my album.  To me they make them look more scrappy.  This is my plan for the holidays.  Another 3 x 4, Thickers for for the title and some word stickers.

The backside of page 3 contains the written list.  The paper is a sheet of Simple Stories from teh 6 x 8 album.  This was Quick and easy.

Scraptastic Kill The Kit May Series

Hello and Happy Memorial Day Weekend to those of you in the US.

Welcome to another kill the kit series….that almost didn’t happen.  My kit had logistical issues. Lets just say I got it last week and May is almost over!  Whew.  This will be a small series as this kit was just the add-on. I owned most of the main kit as a Kit already…go figure!

Here’s a look at the add-on Kit

This was primarily a white/creme based kit…YAY mixed with salmon and mint Green.  There’s a ton of that color scheme so I hope next month’s kit brings change.  The add-on kits are chalked full of bits and pieces which I will talk about at the end of the series.   Many of you know that I changed my diet a few months ago…but I am still able to have most all foods they do have to be altered a bit.  Hot chocolate is one of those things and I lurve me some hot chocolate.  Spousie often makes me drinks, raw juice and smoothies:) you know the hard stuff, lol.  He decided to make me hot chocolate and I remember thinking what is taking him so long?  Insert ungrateful..keep me in prayer.  He said he couldn’t get it to dissolve.  Really ?  It’ s hot chocolate! I decided I was going to try it.  Boy was he right.  I blew up the microwave and still had all the chocolates in the bottom of the cup…Hot Chocolate equals a Hot Mess!

This layout out makes me laugh. Since I didn’t have much inventory to work with I spreaded the layout in a diagonal fashion.  The circles added a small effect without taking away from the story

I have to thank my co worker for the title that I cut out on my silhouette and added some snap letter stickers.

 

1-IMG_6297

 

This layout does not have a ton of dimension but there are a few layers.  If you note I used all circles and polka dots.

1-IMG_6298

Banners are on of my favorite things to make.  They are simple, no need for a punch or die cutting machine.  TIP: take a rectangle, make a 1/2 inch cut in the middle on one end.  Clip from edge to to 1/2 inch center and repeat! All done1

I think the Hashtag thing is so fun so I added to a chipboard hashtag from the kit and letter stickers.

Mothers Day Surprise

Hello,

I hope everyone had a fantastic Mothers Day Weekend.  I wanted to sit and chat with you  a little bit. I had not visited my mother in a little over a year.  This year I decided to surprise her for Mothers Day….It worked.  We arrived in Memphis at 3:50 in the morning her sleep was broken by Pepper invading her room.  She was truly shocked and happy…woo!!  Although she had to work everyday it didn’t matter we still enjoyed our fellowship.  Friday and  Saturday Spousie and I did nothing but just relax, and enjoy the quiet serene environment. We sat out in the rocking chairs before our bliss was short lived by red wasps! Pepper had a blast roaming free  and running inside and out, lol.  Here  are a  few pictures which you will see in future layouts.
