4 generations--October 2014 CKC

Here is another layout using my October Splendor of Nature CKC kit.

I was inspired by a sketch at Stuck sketches to create this layout.
 
I was inspired by one of the ladies who posted to the CKC linky to use all of my scraps layered up without cutting any of them.



I was able to layer up lots of random embellishments here.

Here's a close up of the bottom with all the layers. I also used a couple of bits of the black paper scraps to fill in the polaroid frames.
 
I used the "Remember" rub on down the side, that rub on has been in my stash for prolly 10 years!

Thankful you are here--October 2014 CKC

Here is another layout from my October Splendor of Nature CKC kit.

I used a sketch from sketchy Friday on the Scrap Much blog for this layout.


I used several mists to color the birds on this layout. I stamped the bird up top.


The ribbon is one that I had in my leftover bowl on my shelf, I just added a little bit of ribbon to the back of it and cut it into a V shape.


I followed the sketch in adding stitches, I just used rub on ones instead of pulling out my sewing machine.


I layered and layered and layered paper for this layout.


I frankensteined the E in "are" and the H and R in "here."

My Girl--October 2014 CKC

I am making my way to the bottom of my October 2014 CKC Splendor of Nature kit.
I was inspired by this months October Sketch #66 at Sketch n Scrap to create this layout.
 
I used my old coluzzle to cut out the circle from pattern paper and then sewed it down. After that I started adding the embellishments.

I was able to get some more use out of the chipboard alphas, I just added some white dots with a white pen.

I've been trying to use this large floral chipboard piece on several layouts and finally found the place to use it.

2014 Christmas Cards

These were fun cards to make because I used my metal tap to make the ornaments. I bought a role of metal tape at the hardware store over a year ago and it has been sitting here waiting for me to have time to play with it.
I used CTMH inks and stamps for the decorations and the sentiments.

Happy Girls--August 2013 CKC

This layout was inspired by Glitter Girl Adventure 034--Living on the Edge.
I used my August 2013 CKC kit on this layout.
 
Love, love, love all the layers on this layout!
 
I have tons of that large green alpha in my stash...I need to get it out and use it up, I love how it looks!

I also haven't stamped on a layout in a long time!

October 2014 CKC--M is for Memories....

Here is another layout from my October 2014 Splendor of Nature kit. I used CSI Case File #143 for the inspiration for this layout. I tried to stick with the colors but when you are trying to do layouts for a newborn baby girl it's not always easy! I did learn with my second grand daughter that I could make non-pink layouts and so I just ran with that notion!!! LoL!!
This is a layout of my 3rd grandee Ele, my mother and older grand daughter were watching her get her first bath in the nursery along with my oldest son Joshua.
 
This week a sketch was included from Pagedrafts, I love their sketches!!
There were clusters of embellishments down the center of the page. So I used one of the cut apart sheets for my title along with 2 different red block letters.

The silver butterflies are punch outs that were from an old frame set from years ago, I still have tons of those and refuse to just pitch that stuff out, I'm sure if I hold onto them long enough I will eventually use them!
 
I popped the photos up along with the cut apart typewriter that says "I love you"

I don't think you can go wrong with sequins, bling and wood veneer! The little banner strips were from paper branding strips.

I finally used that flowery leaf border strip  that I threw into my kit. I've had it out to use on several layouts and just haven't managed to get it done till now.

October 2014 CKC--Memories

I love this layout! Not only for the content but the beautiful background paper that was in my October Splendor of Nature kit!

I love when I am able to use up items that are in my leftover bowl on my desk, it feels like it is finally getting less cluttered. there are several elements from that bowl on this layout.

The white flower and bling brad are from the leftover bowl on my desk.

The flourish piece and white flower are from the leftover bowl.

The larger green brad, white flower, bling brad and arrow are all from my leftover bowl. Can you tell under the pink bling brad that I used some rub ons? they are almost invisible on this page.

October 2014 CKC--An Awesome Time Loving You

I wondered and wondered and wondered how I was going to use that paper with the silver glitter, black, pink and red paper that was in my October Splendor of Nature kit but I finally figured it out with this 2 pager.

These are all pictures from the day that my youngest grandee Ele was born.

Left side. I love that quote, it was a sticker that has been in my stash for years and years! As you can see I used lots more strips of paper on this side.

The one strip of paper with the phrase sentiments I cut apart and used all over.

Another one of the puffy paint words, I used my xyron to apply adhesive and then just peeled and stuck it down.
Inside the metal ring is one of the images I stamped for another layout but did not use.

I used the dot and the stripe paper for this one.

I added those metal flowers and then added the chalkboard chipboard over them for added dimension.

I cut a border sticker into sections and used it on each of the polka dot squares.
 
 I had actually put that chipboard piece in the metal ring for another layout and it never got used, I'm so glad I was able to use it on this layout.
Another stamped image in the metal ring.

What's on My Workdesk

I'm joining the other crafters at Stamping Ground who are brave enough to show their desks today.
 
Doesn't my desk look so lovely in this photo, with a nice huge spot to craft on....

Look to the right and you can find bits of my October CKC here

And looking to the left you can find more bits of my CKC here

And don't forget to turn around and look behind at the piles of stuff there....


I love that my craft desk and table and stool are full of crafting stuff instead of school books now!
Did I mention that I passed my board exam?
I did!!!
 
Now I can craft to my hearts content in my free time...

October 2014 CKC--Happy to be Waiting Together

Here is another layout from my October Splendor of Nature kit.

I started this layout with cutting out a circle from scrap paper and then covering it with lots of strips of paper, they are either cut offs, border strips or from the pieces of paper with border strips on them.

I painted the word Happy in black and sprayed the chipboard bird with Heidi Swapp mist to color it.

Those feathers are ones that I stamped for another layout and then didn't use them, I originally stamped them on white paper and I colored them with CTMH Dutch Blue ink, I even sprayed one with HS ink.

I cut a bigger blue circle to place behind the strip circle.

I also cut a piece of a border strip that was in my kit to make the birds wing.
