In the Kitchen

Hi Friends!!

I was inspired to create the layout by the video

I added vellum behind the photo and added in some stickers.

More stickers and even an acetate piece from my kit.

Lots of layered stickers and a little washi tape.

More layers of stickers and labels to go along with the journaling.

Card--Birthday

Hi Friends!

Today I am sharing a card I created using my November 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit. I found inspiration for the card on pinterest.

Sweet Happiness

Hi Friends!

Today I'm sharing a layout I created with my November 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit.

The layout is of my sweet little grandee Zoë.

I was inspired to create this layout by a challenge on the
Victoria Marie Face Book group
Weekend Challenge--Use 6x6 paper pad

I added wood veneer here and a gold glitter heart in the center.

I used the epoxy words that were in my kit along with an arrow clip from freckled fawn.

Leaves from a freckled fawn kit tucked in with some cut aparts and a really old JOY sticker from Miss Elizabeth.

Finally some more freckled fawn felt leaves and a 3x4 card with a sentiment on it.

Smarty Pants

Hi Friends!!

Today I am sharing a layout I created using my November 2015 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit.

The layout is of Mr Gulley's spunky aunt and uncle.

I was inspired by this Page Maps sketch from June 2006

I had to add hidden journal spot because the front of the layout was just too busy.

I used some foam adhesive to add a little texture to some of the cut outs and stickers.

I even added in a little wood veneer.

The words are actually from a branding strip that I cut apart.

Card--Birthday

Hello Friends!!
Today I am sharing a card I made using my November 201 5Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit.
I wasn't to the end of the kit but I had a day when I felt really crafty but didn't have time to make a 12x12 layout so I created a card.

I used some of the embellishment pieces from the kit and stamped a sentiment on the inside and the front of the envelope.

Layout share

Hi Friends!!
Today I am sharing the layouts I made with my stash kit. I showed you the contents yesterday so if you didn't see that have a look back. I created 6 layouts with the kit I put together.


Scary photo I know, I took it at 4:45 in the morning when I got up to go to the gym.
I actually did some misting on the background of this layout and some sewing...YaY Me!!

This photo is of my Auntie Frances.
I used up quite a few of the border pieces that I added into the kit on this layout.

These photos are of my sweet nieces.
I tried out the packaging technique on this layout and it warped the cardstock horribly.

This is a layout of my grandee Ele and my Mother Anne.
I used lots of scraps cut into banner shapes along the bottom of the photos.

This layout is of myself, Mr Gulley and 2 of our grandee's. I used the scraps of other paper along with some stickers, rub ons and enamel dots to create this layout.

These photos are of my uncles ex wife, her son, daughter in law and their baby.
I used quite a few scraps of paper and cut them in half to spread them behind the photos.

These photos are of my sweet grandee Ele and her mom Liz.
Finally I used the last 2 full sheets of pattern paper to create this layout.

I also created a video share to show close ups of the layouts I created...

I created a kit using my stash....

Hello Friends!
So this past weekend I spent the whole weekend scrapping. I followed a challenge over at the 2016 Bash Your Stash Face Book group to create my own paper kit. Well I did that...and then scrapbooked with it.

Here's the kit, it's a small kit for my standards but a lovely kit if I do say so myself.

The paper I selected was from the Pebbles Family Ties paper stack from 2013. I pulled 10 sheets of paper out and added 5 pieces of cardstock.

Next I added a couple of sticker sheets from my stash, all partially used but still well loved.

I added in a couple of stamp sets, 3 rolls of ribbon, green and gold sequins, 5 rolls of washi tape, 2 different twines, a spray mist and some glitter glue.

I added some random border strips, some enamel dots and pearls, some random green things from by green color bin and a set of green and yellow alpha stickers.

Finally some wood veneer and rub ons.

Here is the video of the kit piece by piece...



Be sure to come back tomorrow for the completed layouts.

Use Your Stuff Challenge--Favorite Punch(s)



Hello Friends!!

Today I created a layout using my March 2016 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit. I had added in the large transparent hearts from a freckled fawn kit and they worked perfectly for this weeks challenge at the Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog, to use your favorite punch. right now my favorite punches are the medium and small size hearts.

I lifted this layout from Desiree Leiva on Victoria Marie's FB group on 3/6/16.

I outlined the paper using a aqua colored sharpie and even added some zig/zag scribbles.

I love how all of the hearts look with the pearls and enamel dots mixed in.

And the journaling I did right on the paper with the same aqua sharpie that I outlined to page with.


Thanks for stopping by today and seeing what I was inspired to create, now dig into your stash and see what you can create based on the challenge this week.
Don't forget to upload it to the link on the UYS blog.
