January 2015 CKC Layout--Family Time

Hello Friends...
 
Here is a layout I made using my January 2015 CKC. It was the final layout and one that I pieced together since I did not have any 12x12 paper or cardstock left. I used 4 pieces of 6x6 paper and a 3x12 scrap of cardstock.
 
I used a piece of acetate and also layered some floral stickers.

I used a Pagemaps sketch from June 2012.

I've layered up cross stickers and puffy stickers and a bit of flare here.

I used 2 pieces of puffy stickers here with some bling to make a butterfly.

More crosses, resin flowers, and stickers here.

I used the silver letters to spell out family, a little difficult to see in this light but it really is there.

February 2015 CKC Kit Layout--You're Fabulous

Hello Friends...
 
Here is another layout made from my February 2015 CKC kit.
 
I was actually able to use another pocketed page card here.
 
I started with a sketch from Pagemaps April 2008.
 

I layered stickers, scrap  papers and enamel dots here.

I used half of a wood veneer doily and a large sticker that came on the sticker sheet that matched one of the paper packs I stated with. I also added some foam tape to the sticker to give it some added oomph!

 The floral stickers are also from a sticker sheet that matched one f the original paper packs.
I also added in the glitter ribbon which wasn't part of the original kit.

February 2015 CKC Kit Layout--Beach Time

Hello Friends...
 
Today I am sharing another layout that I made with my February 2015 CKC using more photos from Summer 2013.
 
The photos are of my sister and her partner as we were all lounging on the beach catching the wind and surf, not necessarily the sun since we had multiple umbrellas up that day.
 
I was inspired to create this layout using a sketch from Sketch-N-Scrap Twisted Thursday #2 The twist for the sketch was to use a pet in the layout. I didn't scrap a pet but I did use the sketch.

I used some of the gold paint I included in the kit, I mixed it with a little water and then sprinkled it across the page.

I layered up some stickers, bling, a chipboard tag and a random die cut.

More stickers along with bling.

I used a die cut heart beside the title and some washi tape here too.
 
 
That's it for today!

February 2015 CKC Kit Layout--Dig it

Hello Friends...
 
Here is a layout I made today using my February 2015 CKC kit. I'm using more photos from the summer of 2013 when we took out older 2 grandchildren Destin Florida.
 
I used a sketch to complete this layout.
 

I used a wood veneer flower as a sunburst here with a brad in the center.

I actually did a little stamping on this layout as well.

I didn't realized how thick the twine was that I put into the kit so I'm not sure I will be using it again on a layout. It may be placed into my card making supplies.

More stickers here and a bit more stamping.

February 2015 CKC Layout--Fun in the Sun

Hello Friends...
 
Here is another layout made with my February 2015 CKC kit.
 
No sketch for this one, just some free time and fun paper for inspiration.

I used several stickers here and the little beach balls had dotted line stickers, I added some extra bounce by adding some bling pieces that were left over from a large floral bit of bling.

More stickers here.

And here, more stickers.
 
That's it for today!!!

Use You Stuff Challenge #174--Sketches



Hello Friends!
 
It's time for UYS Challenge #174 and it's a sketch challenge!
If you haven't already guessed by checking out my blog, I love sketches! I use as a starting point for nearly every card or layout I create. I used to spend countless hours trying to figure out my photo and embellishment clusters/positions. But now, I just look at the sketch for inspiration and my layouts/cards come together in no time.
I've kind of been on a Pagemaps kick here lately. I print out the newest sketches every month and add them to my vast collection. When I use a Pagemaps sketch I feel like that is the first thing I pull from my stash to create a card or layout since I have them all printed out.
Pagemaps February 2015

Pagemaps--Cardmap January 2015
 







So go stuff diving this week and see what kind of stuff you can pull out to use on your card or layout.

We look forward to seeing what you create with one or both of these sketch's this week!!

Make sure you add your layout or card to the inlinkz below so we can come by and leave some blog love.

January 2015 CKC Layout--Happy Birthday Ele

Hello Friends!!
 
Today I am sharing a layout I made with my January 2015 CKC kit. I was pretty much down to scraps here so I just ran with it. I layered lots of strips of paper in the background and added some washi tape down the side and across the bottom and here ya go.
 
I had very little of the gold glitter paper left but I managed to add a few pieces here.

I used a sketch from Pagemaps February 2014

I used the 2 flourish pieces together with a bit of scrap bling to create this butterfly.

I stamped the Happy Birthday for a card but didn't end up using it so I added it here.

I was able to squeeze in some more of the cut apart words.

Several more bits of stickers and chipboard embellishment pieces finish off this layout.

January 2015 CKC--the Graduate

Hello Friends!!!
 
My January 2015 layouts have been relegated to the weekends so that I can post the February layouts through the week. Once I'm done posting all of the January layouts, I still have some from last year that never got published. So stay tuned!
 
I love how this layout came together. Of course the subject is pretty spectacular!! It kind of looks a little like the sketch I started with.

I used a sketch from Pagemaps August 2012.

I used several scraps here. I even cut out those flowers from a piece of scrap paper.

I colored the title that was originally grey to a very soft pink to match the background paper. I also layered up lots of stuff here.

More of the flowers cut out from scrap paper along with more scraps.

Make A Card Friday--January 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
 
Here are the final 2 cards from my January 2015 CKC. I really need to get back on schedule with my Christmas cards now!
 
Just a simple birthday card using that fabulous glitter paper and some of the 6x6 pattern papers from my kit.

I stamped the inside of my card and the front of my envelope. I also added a bit of washi tape and a colored butterfly.

I used a sticker on the glitter paper scrap here along with a couple of die cut pieces from the scraps in my kit. You can also see the front of the envelope that I stamped.

Again I stamped the sentiment on the inside along with more washi tape and a die cut heart.
