Welcome to Friday! This week, I took on a special challenge: to create a non-Halloween Layout with Pink Paislee's Phantom Collection. Turns out, it was pretty easy. :)
Here's the sketch I made for you:
And here is my layout. Thanks to my children for providing these pictures on my phone (surprise, Mom, I had a frog in my hair yesterday!) Blech. Anyway, it's good for a laugh now, and of course this layout:
Thanks for joining me! Please upload your takes on the sketch to our gallery! I want to see what you create. :) Have a great weekend.
Hey there! I am back to share with you a mini album I created using the beautiful Authentique Paper : Uncommon collection. I seriously adore the colors. Pretty much into grey lately and I am glad that Uncommon collection has grey. As I was deciding what photos to use, suddenly recall that I actually do not have a wedding album. I have done one but that was entirely black and white. Immediately decided to do another album with my wedding photos. So without further ado, let me share with you what I created and I hope that you like it :)
Thanks for dropping by and hope you will grab this collection in the store because it is just so stunning... they look so beautiful in real life!
**This is today's first Two Scoops Post. This afternoon, be sure to come back for a post from this month's GDT! :)**
Can an entire paper line be your favorite? *grins* I absolutely adore by OFF TO SCHOOL by Fancy Pants Designs. All of it. So, I flipped and flopped between the Glitter Cuts and the Filter Embellishments as my fav. I went with the Filters! After using a little bit of this and that from the collection, I found that I really loved all of the ideas that one could come up with using the Filters.
On the back of the package there is an example of how to scrunch them into flowers, so I figured that I would forgo an example of that and try to come up with a couple of different things.
I used a LARGE filter and created a bottle lid topper...fits the little cappuccino bottles perfeclty! Fun gift idea and super, super easy
Then, on this layout, I folded a large filter in half, then in half again and cut into triangles to create some fun and unusual pennants!
I stitched around the perimeter of each one and then distressed them just a bit...I like the way the curl on their own accord...reminds me of shabby chic circus or something similar LOL
I hope you find cool ways to use Fancy Pants' Filters! You can ink 'em, glitter' em or leave them plain.
Have fun :)
This is something I've been toying with so the timing was perfect. I'm working on creating photo walls throughout the house. Each cluster will be something different. ie Family, vacations, random photos.....
I ordered my canvas a couple of weeks ago and received it shortly after. Their prices are great and their shipping is awesome.
Before I show you the canvas, let me tell you how easy their site is to use. It literally took me less than 10 minutes to order this. I toyed around with their many options before settling on what I did.
I couldn't be happier.
Please excuse the bad lighting. There hasn't been a lot of sun here lately.
For now, this is hung behind the dining room table but when my dad comes home for Thanksgiving in November, this will be his birthday present. I decided to gift it to him since this was his favorite shot from the 700 I took on on our trip to Calgary this past July. It will look great hanging up in his empty apartment or office.
(My dad is on assignment in Calgary for the next couple of years.)
But because I still have the idea for several photo walls, I had to order more of these. My second experience was just as great as the first.
So what are you waiting for? Give them a try. The canvases make the pictures look like a high quality painting.

I used the sweet Peppermint Collection from Crate Paper to create this double-pager, along with a sketch to share with you this month! Mind you, I don't do many double page layouts at all...in fact, probably two or three that I can think of in all of my 14 years of scrapbooking. This was fun though...hope that you enjoy it
Everything is from the Peppermint line (Stand Outs, Baker's Twine, Chipboard elements, pom poms that I trimmed from the length and patterned papers). From my stash: cardstock and chipboard letters.
Today I wanted to share some of my recent Stash Faves that I received with my August kit.
I was lucky enough to get several pieces from Echo Park's Splash collection, and I couldn't believe how darn cute they were.
Obviously, the collection has a summery, pool & beach theme, but it's uses extend far beyond summer pages. The line is perfect for kids, celebrations, & other happy layouts.
I pretty much fell in love with the cardstock alpha stickers.
Initially, I wasn't so sure about the font, but once I slapped them down on my card it was love at first sight.
Here's some of my creations with this adorable line.
Don't Be a Crab Card (Inside reads: Be Glad)
Pool Attitude. Lovin' those cardstock stickers and how sturdy they are. I used pop dots to raise several of them without any issue.
I loved the beach ball paper, but found it a little overwhelming to use as a background on this layout. Instead, I opted for cutting some of the "balls" out, and using them in clusters.
