Radio Love

Hello Friends!!

Today I am sharing a layout I crated with my March 2016 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit or my Scrap Stash kit.

The photos are of the radio with each of my son's name light up.

I added an epoxy owl to the hidden journal tag, of course it was so textured that the journal card would not fit in the pocket so I eventually took the owl tag off and just added a flat embellishment to the tag.

I added several scraps to make the banners and cut up some more of the hexagon cut aparts to add to the side of background paper.

I added another tag and some other paper embellishments.

Cousins 6

Hello Friends!!

Today I am sharing a layout I created using my March 2016 Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit or my Scrap Stash kit.

The photo is of my Cousins Leigh, Heather, myself, my sister Angie and my cousins Lidia and Melody.

I was inspired t create this layout by using a sketch from Stuck Sketches on March 15, 2016.

I used a chipboard frame and a tag along the top of the photos.

I layered the other half of the chipboard frame along with another tag  below the photos, I added a paper clip to the tag and even added some ribbon to the tags, which I stapled in place.

Finally I used another embellishment with a tag at the bottom of the layout.

UYS Cahlenge #226 5,4,3,2,1--Train, Train at the Science Spectrum

Hello Friends!

This weeks Challenge is a 54321 challenge.  To start choose 5 patterns, then 4 colors, 3 photos, 2 (at least) embellishments and 1 washi tape...easy peasy right?


So here is the layout I created using my May 2016 CKC kit.
The photo is of my grandee Shani from 2012, she was soo tiny then, we were at the Science Spectrum Museum in our town and she was completely enthralled by the mini train set and watching the train go round and round.

I used several bits here that I have had in multiple kits, yes they keep getting added back into my current kits because I know I will eventually use them.

I used a tile alpha to spell out At The Science Spectrum.

The teal cameras are from a sheet of paper I cut apart years ago.

That copper tone circle piece is a die cut piece, from scraps, that I cut out years ago as well.

The yellow piece sticker under the camera has been in my stash since before Shani was born, I actually bought them for her baby album.

Finally the journaling is a leftover piece fro an old SEI kit.


Thanks for visiting my blog today and we would love to see your creations over at the UYS challenge blog.

Everyday is a Gift

This is a layout I created using a stash kit I put together for May 2016. The photos are of my sweet grandee Shani.
I used a sketch from Pagemaps  May 2016 to get me started creating on this layout.

Here is a paper sack I had in my kit with a homemade tag, which is where I hid my journaling on.

You can see I also used lots of sequins and the hello is actually a die cut.

Here's the journaling.

Love those striped letters but they are chipboard so I had to add extra adhesive behind them!!

I did some stamping on this bit of 3x4 PP card then added some washi tape and some enamel dots. The arrows are die cut out of scraps.

That little copper circle border behind the photos is a border die that I cut out years ago.

I have 2 goodie bags to give away, both are filled with planner supplies that I have just cleaned out of my overly large supply of planner supplies. Leave only 1 comment here, one comment on the YT video and one comment at the UYS Challenge Blog to be qualified to win one of them...Good Luck!!


Here's a link to the process video I created, yes...I do know that it's title's are upside down and all messed up, I'm really just learning to make narrated process videos. So please be understanding.

I think I fixed the video link.
