You and Me

Hi.. Back again with another one of my sketches over at Scrapbook Stamp Society.

We are trying to promote digi images and it's not that often that people use
them on their layouts... So I am going to share monthly pages using Digital Images on my
layouts and maybe we inspire you to give it some thought as to the many images you
have that would relate to a real life situation and be perfect on a layout page.

Here is the page I made using my sketch and a digi image.
The Product used is Momenta.
Here is the close up of what detailing you could put into using a digi on a layout.

These 2 closeups show the fun Momenta accents I used to finish my page.

Thanks for stopping by.. and be sure to check everymonth at Scrapbook Stamp Society to see what sketches are posted to inspire you to play along and also show us how to use those digis on layouts.
Can't wait to see what you create to share in the links.


Hi .. so hope your having a great day. Are you looking for some inspiration?
Scrapbook Stamp Society is one of my new DT teams where I am Sketch Designer.
Maybe this sketch will motivate you?
Below is the card I made using it.
 AND Red Carpet Studio's Challenge #21TED is to put a bear on a card.
Thsi cute digi girl is holding my bear for the challenge.
I used Fancy Pants About a Girl .. it was so perfect with this
 really cute digi image. I used copic markers and blended to shade the dress.
 I also am on an Easel Card kick and this card is such a card.

Lots of fun accents on this card: twine, rubons,
clear gel accents and lots of fun paper layers.


And today's post for Just Imagine Crafts is using the above card.
It worked so well for both posts today.
Here is the up close Kreaxions Punch #309 border which creates the perfect ledge
to support the stand up easel card.

Happy to be Me

For this fun purple page I used Memorable Seasons Sketch #7 
I added some fun doodled flowers clustered over the frame and title.
and I put the tags/flags upside down.

Some fun doodling in the lower corner, the cute chair accent and the precut border
 make for some fun layers and colour changes.

I added a small cluster of flowers, the Kreaxions Punched Butterfly #604
doubled and accented with stickles and a doodle trail line.

Clusters really seam to be the big thing right now.. so this lower corner is finished off with brads across the bottom corner and other fun piece in close vacinity.

Let's Capture our Memories

Hi.. so glad today to share this fun 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" page. Going to work on a vintage family album using the old photos I got from my mom. I used the sketch below from Let's Capture our Memories with Allison Cope. I didn't flip it or anything but did move the centre section to the side so I could fussy cut and slid the circle and part of the photo underneath. I used lots of fun papers to make the lower borders.

In the close up you can see the doodling, some clear film and the stitching around the circle.

In this close up it shows the fun layers, use of stickers, border and the fussy cut section.
Thanks for stopping  by and be sure to check out what the rest of the DT had to reveal on the blog.

SWAT and what is that you ask?

This is going to be one of the newest challenge sites starting February 2013.
Be sure to mark your calendars and join us.
I am honoured to be on the Design Team
and today it's my turn to introduce myself and that included sharing with
you three of my favourite pages. I really have so many that I love but
thought it would be fun to share and pick from some of my recent pages.
This one I choose for the fussy cute flowers which I used liquid pearls on..
the circle both big and also the thin ring circle...
and other cute accents and outer circle of brads.
This page I choose because of it's simplicity due to the amount of space left after adding
the huge photo of Niagara Falls. The paper line Authentique was perfect and I love the
punched border that makes it all pop.
 This final page I choose because of the photos.. my boys and their kids,
my grandkids. They all play such a large part of my life. The paper, accents and
everything about it make it perfect for my photos
Thanks for letting me share and hope to see you at SWAT beginning in February. 

Let's Get Sketchy - O Christmas Tree

Up close shows the fun layers in the tag cluster with some stitching.

Just Imagine Crafts DT January REVEAL

My creation for the Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions January DT Reveal is
a fun Christmas Celebration page. The small border is punched with Kreaxions #914.
With this page I also used the Jade week 6 sketch from Scrapbook Steals
In this close up it shows some of the fun accents from the My Minds Eye Products.
Stickers, 3D embellies, Chipboard and brads.
This close up shows the fun fussy cut trees across the bottom, some chipboard accents 
and the sparkled paper Kreaxion Punch #914 in  small border.

Using the same paper line I used pieces to make this card and used Kreaxions Punch #902.
I also added some fun Robins Nest Dew Drops for that wet look.
Thanks for stopping by... I enjoyed sharing with you today.
