Creative Embellishments project

Today at Creative Embellishments I am sharing a random photo of my only Grand Son, Jake. Being the only boy I like to play a bit more to create pages that don't have flowers and frilly lace like all the girls pages. 

To start the base I sized down white cardstock inside the fun bold bright yellow background print.
I used Tim Holtz oxide square pads and stamped a mix if colours ... I then sprayed them and let them drip down the page a bit. I then machine stitched lots of squares or part squares throughout the stamping.

In the close ups you get a better view of some of the detaila and the great chipboard accents that I used. HappyWord Set with the added Basic Alphabet letters "Jake" .

I added lots of fun Gears and also just pieces of a Mini Quatrefoil Panel that I cut apart in the upper and lower corners.

Thanks for stopping by. This will be my last DT share for this term... but watch for lots of products from Creative Embellishments on my projects as they are one of my favourite things to use.

Celebrate - Graduation page

The ScrapRoom Taste of Color Challenge as per below along with the Let's Get Sketchy June 1st sketch both of which I used for the page. I am sharing my page created using the colours listed, the sketch along with some great photos from my youngest Grand Daughter Julia's Graduation with her gramma Baba and Great Gramma B. Love pages full of memories with people in our families.
For this page I used products from The Rubber Buggy - Blue Fern Studios paper. Creative Embellisments chipboards painted and ink and covered using Nuvo glimmer paste, along with an inked stenciled star burst along with a flair button. I added misc brads and pearls 

As you can see I start by cutting and layering all the background pieces and I painted the chippie frame white.

Other chippie pieces were painted white then coloured and finished with Nuvo glitter paste for sparkle.

You see the great flair button and pearls in this photo too.

Lots of layers, chipboards and fun flair button and pearls accents this page.

 Thanks for stopping by ... have a great day.

"This is a Beautiful Life" with amazing memories

At Sketch n Scrap I am playing along with the June 15th sketch #155 below. 
I am using The Rubber Buggy products -Heartfelt Creations Blushing Rose Collection and 49 and Market Botanical Potpourrri Snow Flowers inked with colour to match the paper collection. The flower clusters are accented with pearls. Doilies are always a great accent.
This is memories from our Niagara Falls overnight trip with mom and her friend.. The scenery is amazing.

In the photos I am sharing more details on the making of this page. I started with the basics from the sketch making the insert and the border of the background.

I added a doily.

Flowers are clustered after inking the flowers in purple and touch of yellow.

Here is the central photo section.

I fussy cut the print paper to slip the purple behind and showcase the photos.

The border was cut from print borders to make the frame.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to stop often when I get to share more with you.


4 "Generations" precious memories

Spiegelmom Scraps sketch challenge for June 2018 showcases the sketch below. I did a major change throw the central photo section because I wanted to use only 1 photo. 
The paper is from The Rubber Buggy store and I used lots of Blue Fern Studios Collections along with amazing 49 and Market flowers. I used copic markers on the chippies and used Tim Holtz inks on the edges.
The Chipbaords are from Creative Embellishments.  
To finish the page off I added some pearl flourishes and cardstock matted the blocks and photo.
I fussy cut top left and bottom right floral corners out so slip the fun solid dark border across the page.

Here are some photos to show the page process. I started with the fuss cut floral sections and added the border first. The centre panel is a piece added to give more colour options.

Title and hearts are copic coloured. 

I matted all pieces with cardstock and then popped up the photo piece.

In the side view you can see the popped up elevation.

 In the next closeups you can see the details of the page better.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope your having a great day.

For this Creative Embellishments project I am showcasing the space chipboard set.... and titled it Dream to Imagine. The photo is grandson when he was young and they are ready to take on the world.

I custom coloured and drew on the Space Set chippies. To make the really white to start I used gesso and let it dry. Then I used copic pens an colour them.
