Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge

Hello and welcome to the Club Scrap Artist Team challenge blog Hop! You should have came here from Kelly's blog. Todays challenge is to incorporate digital in your scrapbooks. So I did it two ways. The first is a completely digital layout of my daughter, who has the sweetest personality of anyone I know. She really does brighten my day!


Here is the Club Scrap Delft Deluxe kit (on the right)  and the Club Scrap Delft Digital kit. (on the left)

The next layout is a hybrid layout using the Club Scrap Delft Deluxe kit but for the journaling.
 I decided to print out a card from the Club Scrap Delft Digital kit


  Since my handwriting is not always the best, the journaling can be printed on the card  from Photoshop and you get perfectly beautiful handwriting. I only have a black printer (I know!) so  I mounted the card on cardstock but also painted the flowers with ink and added some Queen & Co bling to the center of the large flowers.

 I found a Youtube to make these pretty flowers by Mybutterflykisses12. It was my first attempt at making ribbon flowers and I really love the way they turned out. My favorite is the blue flower with the sheer ribbon. The darker border really defines the flower. In the center of the blue one I added some pearls with a bling flower in the center. On the yellow flowers I added Delft Embellishment Pack Cabochons. They are so gorgeous and match the papers perfectly! Besides all the great items in the Club Scrap Delft Deluxe kit  used on this layout was Recollections wood, Want2Scrap bling, Teresa Collins chipboard piece and ink.

 Thanks for stopping by.

Next stop the very talented Lisa!

Lets scrap Sketch

Hello, today I made this layout using the sketch from Let's

It's hard to photograph night pictures and even harder for me to get a picture of them. My top and bottom borders look really crooked but they're not. For the fireworks I used sequins.

Club Scrap and Let's Scrap Challenge for March

Hi and thanks for coming by today! Today I would like to share with you a layout I did using the Club Scrap Deluxe Delft kit and this Let's Scrap sketch. This is a throwback sketch and I think I used it before but it is a really nice layout to use over and over again!

Todays layout is of my two granddaughters. The older one sometimes thinks her younger sibling is a pest, and hopefully this reminds her that is nice having an younger sibling.
The journaling and title goes as follows:
Title : Having a little sister is great because...
She shares her food with me, even donuts!
She tells me all her secrets!
I can always blamer her!
She makes me feel better when I am feeling blue.
Lastly, she ADORES ME!
But the best part about having a little sister is we always have each other!

The title and tulip was cut from my Cameo and the typed words are Tim Holtz Verbage.
The pretty Delft Embellishment Pack Cabochons and Silver Dome Settings are included in the kit.

I have so many brads ( a whole drawer full!) that I could use them on every layout I ever do and never run out. I especially love the grumpy brad in the upper right hand corner.  In the center of the pictures I added a Delft Silver Filigree Accent from the kit and added a blue brad in the center. 

Close up of the title

Tulip cut from Silhoutte. I added a ribbon bow

You all know the great quality of Club Scrap products and the Delft gel pens are no exception. These are my new FAVORITE pens for journaling. They come in blue and black which is what I almost always journal in those colors.  Try at least one and you will see why I love them.

March Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Today I did this layout using the Scrap Our Stash  Tic Tac Toe Stash  challenge.

 I sort of got mixed up when doing this and ended up using the left hand row of a charm, ink and mini alphas. I was going to use ink, gold, shamrocks but I couldn't find anything gold. But now that I see the key I used is "goldish", I guess it is brass. Anyway the ink is hard to see, I used it on the title, the word St Patty's is on Maya Road chipboard which I inked.

Rock n Roller Coaster Layout

Today I made this layout about our trip to Disney and the boys going on Rock n Roller Coaster. I also was inspired by Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge website to do this. Their challenge was to use chipboard and something old. So they guitar and car were chipboard and the border at the bottom was from an old Kaisercraft BoysRule kit and the screw brads were from Oriental Trading which are also very old.

Good morning everyone! Today I did a layout with the Club Scrap Succulents Lite Kit and My Creative Sketches.

Here is my layout I did based off of the sketch. My granddaughter always says that her Uncle Jeffrey scares her because he is so big, but she really loves him. He can't be bothered with her, but she always goes over to him and waits for him to pick her up. I had to add that moon face because the expression is exactly the same as his!
Around the edge of the cardstock I added fibers from simply by punching holes near the corners. I used misc. ephemera, MME diecut and from Club Scrap. The wood button is from Club Scrap and the flower buttons are Prima (I think).

The glassine envelope, maroon velvety ribbon, and washi tape are all the kit! The silver metal charm and fibers are also from Club Scrap and on the other side has the word "Grow", which makes it versatile!

Here is the awesome sketch from My Creative Sketches.

Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge February Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge February Blog Hop. You should have come here from Kelly's blog .

The challenge was to use the awesome  Uppercase and Lowercase Stencils from Club Scrap, which are on sale at 50% off starting 2-28.

Here is the layout I created from the new Succulents Kit from Club Scrap.  This layout is of my granddaughter who just turned 7 a few days before this photo was taken. She is getting so big!

I decided to stencil three ways. The first way was this title. I embossed some periwinkle embossing a mint green piece of cardstock.

Second I used the Color Me Happy Silver Paint Pen which by the way I am a little obsessed with! lol I traced the number then used water colors to fill in the inside and cut the letters out. I used pop squares on every other letter to raise them off the layout and give it some dimension.

Last I used it on one of the fabulous Succulents Canvas Tags. I slipped on two charms from Club Scrap, the  Succulent Silver charm and the Dahlia Lite charm.

Here is a picture of the Deluxe Succulents Kit!

Next stop the very creative Lisa!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Club Scrap Succulent Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Club Scrap Succulent Blog Hop. You should have came here from Lisa's blog and didn't she do a fantastic job this month with the kit?

Today I made a Jacob's Ladder mini album and box using the tutorial from Club Scrap. Tricia makes it so fun to do with her easy to follow video seen here!

In my spare time (lol) I made a digital layout using the Club Scrap Digital Succulent Kit.

Here is all you get in the digital kit! See the flower paper in the upper left hand corner, that is what I used for my background paper. In photoshop I started with a 500x500 pixel blank sheet and then pasted a square section of the flower section onto my sheet. Because the digital kits pixels are higher normally I would reduce the size, but I liked the way it looked so I just left it at that, and shrunk all my other images.

Next is the Jacob's Ladder and box. The lid I wrapped in ribbon and added a flower and used some faux bead to make the leaves. On the other side which does not show up to clearly on this photo I added a white feather.  The flower on the Jacob's ladder has some added charms.

All the sections of the ladder are represented in these pictures. A lot of the sections have pull out tabs (which I pulled out) that so that both sides can hold a photo or two, a cutout or journaling

I intent to add photo's of my grandmother who loved flowers, so on the bottom card I stenciled her initials on the card using the Club Scrap Uppercase Stencils, which are totally awesome!  I can see me using these in the future all the time! They also sell Lowercase Stencils here!

That's it for me today folks, be sure to stop by and see what Kelly at Serendipity & Whimsy has in store!

Club Scrap Color Me Happy Lite kit

Hello everyone,
Today I would like to share a layout I made using the Club Scrap Color Me Happy Lite kit! I had the photo of my granddaughter forever and I am finally scrapping it. The blue bubbly paper from the kit inspired this layout. 
The background paper I used gelatos on white cardstock to give it a little color. All the shapes and letters were cut out from the Silhouette. For the bubble blower I used the Club Scrap Office Space Lite Metallic Jade Pen to make the lines.

Aren't the Color Me Happy Lite Enamel Dot Stickers an awesome embellishment?

Here is a picture of the kit.

Thank for stopping by today.
