Be Awesome & Do What You Love Nov 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
Today I'm sharing another layout I made using my November 2015 Counterfeit Kit based on the Cedar Lane collection by Pink Paislee.

I was inspired to create this layout using a sketch at Let's Get Sketchy January Week 3

I actually did some stamping for the title on this layout, got lots of washi tape used and even some of the fussy cut flowers added in.

Even added in several pocket page cards in the 3x4 and 2x2 and 4x4 sizes.
There were actually 4 background papers layered up.

Thanks for visiting my blog today!!

Use Your Stuff Challnege--Use Pop Dots

Hello Friends!!

I'm sharing my creation for the UYS challenge this week, use pop dots.  I used lots of my scrappy stash to make these cards!

The flowers were fussy cut from a piece of pattern paper and have been in my leftovers bowl on my shelf for a long time. I finally decided to pull them out and use them for this challenge. I popped them up for added dimension and even tucked in some additional cut out pieces behind them.

I was able to use up some glitter paper for these cards.

Love the glitter paper and the glitter heart tape.

I love the embossed look of the dark coral paper.

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.

Home, You Make Me Happy November 2015 CKC

Hello Friends!!
I'm sharing another layout I made with my November 2015 CKC kit.

I cut the middle of the red paper out so that I could use it on another layout.

I was inspired to make this layout using a sketch from Page Maps July 2015

I used several bits of scrap paper behind the photo along with several cut aparts on this layout.

This is a metal arrow and the ribbon in the tags is fabric tape.

The acetate piece is from freckled fawn.

New Year's Day @ Work Nov 2015 CKC

Hi Friends!

Today's layout is one that I made a while ago, in January of this year using a Counterfeit Kit that used the Cedar Lane collection from Pink Paislee as the inspiration.

I was inspired to create this layout by Let's Get Sketch January Week 1 sketch.

The acetate, enamel dot and acrylic piece are all from Freckled Fawn.

The orange grid journaling spot is actually a bit of packaging. the green piece with the geo tags is a bit of scrap paper.

I used a 3x4 pocket page card here.

Use Your Stuff Challenge--Inspired by a Quote

Hello Friends!!

Today I sharing a layout I created for the UYS challenge blog, this weeks challenge is to be inspired by a quote. Mine comes from Confucius....

I am totally a type A personality and I go 900miles an hour every day, so I really have to make an effort to find time to unwind, really unwind and that means taking time to take it slow!

I had a sheet of acetate pieces that I cut apart and used 3 pieces on this layout, I added pearls to the flourish piece.

I used a roller stamp to stamp out lovely day across the top.

I used several bits from Freckled fawn here, the enamel shapes, and the chipboard sayings.

Here's another bit of that acetate sheet. Along with a puffy rabbit.

Here's the quote I used, I actually have it written out in my planner this month as inspiration...I really need to find more time to take life slower!!

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I was inspired to create, now dig into your stash and see what you can create based on the challenge this week.

March 2016 Counterfeit Kit Challeng Kit

Hello Friends!
I'm finally sharing my kit for the month, it seems like all I've been doing lately is working...
I've been scrapping when I have the time but I truly am trying to make more time to scrap and blog!
Isn't that the way of life....busy never ends!

Yep it was night when I pulled my kit together but I wanted to get it photographed so I could get it into its box for the month. 

I pulled out 4 stamp sets, 1 roller stamp and 4 6x6 paper pads to use.

Enamel dots and shapes, wood veneer, flair and even some brads.

Sequins, alphabets and a couple of packages of embellishment diecuts & frames that I need to get used up.

Even some leftover stuff from a long time ago...oh wait....stash from a long time ago.

Here's the video where I go through everything.
