Scrapbook Challenges Sketchy Monday

This is a great double page of the cutest Jr. Bridesmaids. I used the sketch below from Scrapbook Challenges that shares sketches every Monday. I altered and turned to make it work with my photos but love the finished project. I wanted soft, elegant but impact papers to showcase the stunning and beautiful photos of the girls. I had fun too with the amazing and perfect accents.

Here are a few close up shots to showcase and share details on the double page layout. Be sure to visit Scrapbook Challenges and see what the rest of the DT did with this sketch and the other versions of the sketch.

I only recently have been having fun with digital scrapping. My Memories Digital Software is fun and easy to navigate and their kits are amazing.. along with the freebies and sales I have now got enough to play with and am totally enjoying myself.

Cookin' Up Creations with Momenta Product

Cookin' Up Creations Crop Chef is on challenge #4 and due today.. Just got it done in time.
The Recipe elements are: Banner, buttons, flowers, key, tear or rip, ribbon or ruffled paper.
I Kreaxions Punch #917 the border and matted it . I then applied the punched edge again on top of the one already done. The fall away piece is what I used to make the cute banner that i strung together with twine. I ripped the top edge and matted it. Buttons lined the bottom ride side.
Ribbon tied to the key with some glitter stones is one cluster while the other is a group of flowers that I put together by winding the stems with ribbon.. down and up again and tying a bow. Grouped this with stones and a cute layered tag.
With a bit of stitching (the machine is sewing terrible - need a new one) and some doodling and a title it is a great page celebrating my mom with her grand kids and great grand kids. It is amazing that she got to be here with them and share in their lives. My grand parents were all gone by the time I was about 5? Only vague memories of them. So we cherish this so much spending lots of time with Gramma B.
I used Momenta product to do this the soft fun colours for this page.
Here is my supply list:
Papers: Momenta PA 0659 CS Earthtones
PA 2382 Pyramid Pad
Title: Momenta ST 1767 Serendipity
Stones: ST 3136

Cousins at Christmas XOXO

This Cousins at Christmas page is always my fav when all the grandkids are together. I used My Sketch World Sketchathon Sketch #15 by Lucy Chesna Design.(below) Also it was perfect to work in a Just Image Creations posting when I used the hearts frame using the Kreaxions Punch #917 with insert A and C. Then after checking Scrapfit workout #62 this week is using the theme XOXO on your page.. it was perfect for multitasking.
I turned the sketch sideways and my photo sideways too.
Lucy's sketchathon is amazing.. lots of great layout and card sketches to work with.. and did I mention fabulous prizes.. you still have most of the month to play along.. be sure to check it out.Up close you can see the fun heart photo frame placed behind some fussy cutting. The little heart pieces I individually scattered on the rest of the page.. it was perfect with the love, XOXO theme.
I love using glossy accents to make the titles glossy and bright.

Doodling Tutorial and Cookin' Up Creations

Welcome today to Tuesday Techniques... and HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

So here is my RECIPE this month for DOODLING:
Supply list:
paper, photo(S), pens, markers, paint
optional: stamps and ink and misting


Doodling is one of the easiest and cheapest things to do. It is described as scribbling aimlessly.
Remember doodling is supposed to look imperfect. It's just a doodle not a drawing masterpiece. It's supposed to be fun.
Doodling is penwork that can be added to the whole page with doodles and accents or just journaling.

START with some basic lines over and over. Now change direction. Add some waves to the lines.
Do swirls, curves, zig zags, loops and random patterns.
Try some shapes like hearts, stars, diamonds, flowers and circles.
After you have a shape try adding lines or dots to it.
Take a die cut and add dots, lines or circles.
ADD lines to corners, around things or fill shapes.

Here is a sample 12x12 page of doodles just to give you an idea of some of the options you have... and many more once you try this on your own.

Make all your own accents... don't use any store bought ones.
I made the banner, flag and the ticket.

My sample page
On my page I used paint to doodle accent the 2 corners around the photo.
I made my own ticket from paper and used white gel pen to add details to it and numbers.
Made the little flag accents.
I added 3 background accents.. 2 stamps and some spray.
The banner was made and white gel pen accents to every piece and the loops doodled to suspend the banner.
Doodling added: corners, music notes, title, brackets, waves, flourish & dots.

If you like to doodle and would like to share your project I'd like to see it. Link below to your blog or leave a link in the comment section.

I am also sharing this today at Scrap Scene WIP Monday. Be sure to check it out.

Terrifically Thrilling Thursday and My Sketch World


Hi everyone.. what a great day. Thought it would be fun to celebrate a wedding with you in my page today at Just Imagine Crafts. I used the sketch below from Lucy Chesna Design.. ( a card sketch) at My Sketch World. I wanted some fun soft layers but also some colour to help pop the photos. Pops of red helped also, the fun cluster with pearls but also needed to do something to bring the circle photo to the front. Well with the Kreaxions Circle Cutter I cut the Photo and a larger background circle. This background I then punched with Kreaxions Punch #917 (the cutest hearts was perfect for a wedding).


I matted the background of the punched hearts and this close up shows the details and the cluster.

This is Lucy's fabulous card sketch that inspired the above Wedding page.
