Colorful Creations & Tuesday Sketches

Colorful Creations and Tuesday Sketches went up this week.
I used some great papers from Authentique Collection.
I used my sketch from below.

I love using coloured sketches even if they are displayed in black n white on the actual site.
 hope you like them as much as I do?

In the close ups you can see some of the fun details and accents.

Lots of easy but cute small clusters to finish off a page.

Brads can add to any page.. and additional tab accents fit under other papers or
corners of photos too.


Let's Capture our Memories with a double page layout

Let's Capture our Memories is celebrating the last day of our 
DT term with a double page sketch. 
Above is my fun double using the many faces of my 
Grand Daughter to make this fun and too cute page.
I love when there's lots of photos to tell the story.

Here are the 2 singles up close so you can view the fun details and great accents.

Be sure to check out the blog to view all DT reveals.

Robin's Nest August Reveal

 This month at the Robin's Nest I am thrilled to share with you the papers
with swirls in many fabulous colours.
I thought i'd start with the special gold and silver on cream base and the silver on black base
and make a wedding page... using an old photo of my mom and all her brothers.
I added a touch of accents like doilys made using Kreaxions Star and Punches, Circle Rings
made using the Kreaxions Circle Cutter, Punched border using
Kreaxions Punches, and sticker accents from SRM.
 I added some flowers which I clustered with Diamond Stones

In this  close up you can see the twine and metal accent, some fine line border,
punched border and doily with SRM sticker and white diamond stones.

This close up details the floral cluster with added 
diamond stones in white and gold colours.

This close up shows the 2nd punches doily with white diamond stones.

This page I am using a photo of us with our Granddaughter on her birthday.
I embossed  the photo mat. I angled everything for dimension.
Using multi colours of the amazing Glitter Swirl papers I did some
blocking on the background solid black mat.... lots of fun layers.
Below I'll share more details in the close ups.

Lace and ribbon on the left side, a kraft tag, and punched border on right side.

Using  Dew Drop Stones I formed the shape of a flower 
and then doodled the stems. 
The sentiment title and words on the outer edge of paper are SRM stickers.

In this close up you see more fabulous blocks of papers...
 also the SRM Sticker border.

Now I have some cards to share with you. The elegant glitter swirls mix and match beautifully.
Through the centre I added a Kreaxions punch #309 border and added some SRM Sticker accents.

Fun tag and accents using SRM Sticker topped off
withe a fun twine tie with metal accent finish this card off perfectly.

Starting with a creamy elegant swirl as background paper
I added a LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon with bow.
Using an other Swirl paper I stamped it with a floral and fussy cut them.
I stamped stems and applied the flowers... popping one forward.
Used and mated SRM sentiment.

In this fun card I used strips of many mixes of the colours from the Glitter Swirls Paper.
Following the pattern I layered the card.
I added the twine with bow and the centre SRM sticker accents to finish it off...
and layered the SRM Sentiment.

Back to School

DSCF2675 resized

We celebrate the August DT REVEAL with the back to school theme. I decided to share a special double page layout without photos that is for a gift album.
Kreasions Punches used are #923 with no inserts on the black cardstock borders... and on the red cardstock is Kreaxions  Punch #307 with no insert on the left side and on the right side it's the fall away piece.
Also I am using this in a multi tasking challenge at My Scraps and More (main #9) to use a 10 item list or journaling. This I did by using the white signo pen listing subects. It worked out so perfectly.
