Colors Of Fall Layout

Hello friends! Happy Thursday!  Today is the sketch reveal at My Creative Sketches for October.  I created a Fall layout with the sketch and used the Bella Blvd. Hello Autumn Collection of papers, stickers and chipboard elements for this layout as well as some older Bella Blvd. collections of flags, buttons, washi tape and a crochet heart.  I love that I can combine collections and they totally coordinate.

Here is the October Sketch designed by Liz Chidester

Now it's your chance to  play along at My Creative Scrapbook's Sketch Challenge. There is an entire month to link up and as you probably know by the kits, there is always a fabulous prize from My Creative Scrapbook. While you are there, check out what the entire team created with the sketch.  I hope you enjoyed your visit and thanks for stopping by!

Cute Dude Layout

Happy Wednesday! Today is the reveal of the October 15 sketch at Stuck?! Sketches. I love scrapping this cutie and I thought the sketch was great with all of the hexagons so I put my Silhouette Cameo to work and came up with this layout using the new Creative Agenda Collection by Echo Park.

Here is the sketch that inspired my layout:

Come play along and upload your creation over at Stuck?! Sketches for the October 15 sketch.  There are some amazing prizes to be won.  Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

Fall Mixed Media Layout

Happy Friday! Today I am sharing a mixed media layout for Creative Embellishments. I am loving all the seasonal wood veneers and chipboard and wanted to create an Autumn Layout.

I began with a white 12X12 piece of white card stock and inked up some stamps and stencils and used many distress inks in Fall colors.  For the wood veneer leaves, Autumn Leaves (Set of 6) I used several distress paints.

For the chipboard Twig Frame, I used some distress paint.  I am very happy with how this layout turned out.

 I hope you are inspired to create a Fall layout.  Thanks for stopping by!

Give Thanks Layout

Hello friends!  Happy Thursday!  Today I wanted to share a layout that I created just for the fun of it.  I don't think I have ever created a photoless layout. In the hustle and bustle of getting prepared for our Canadian Thanksgiving Day, which is this weekend,  I am very excited that my older children will be coming to celebrate it with me.  I wanted to scrapbook something from my heart and all the things that I am thankful for.

This layout was pure fun to create!  I used the new Hello Autumn Collection from Bella Blvd. for all the patterned papers, the stickers, chipboard stickers and ephemera and a piece of white card stock.  I cut out a template with my Silhouette Cameo from some free cut files that I found at Chickaniddy Crafts and then used several pieces of patterned paper to make the design.  I wanted my journaling to be personal and from the heart so I wrote it in my own handwriting.

I hope you enjoyed my layout! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I Love My Cat Layout

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a layout for The Cut Shoppe of my handsome cat Sheldon. He deserves a page of his own as he came to our family as a rescue cat and was in pretty bad shape.  We nursed him back to health and he has been such a sweetheart and such a wonderful addition to our family.

I used the That Darn Cat cut file from The Cut Shoppe for the title and the cat shapes.  

I also added a border stamp around the edge of the white card stock background.  I wanted to give it a chalkboard effect so I outlined the black card stock die cuts with a white gel pen, splattered some mist and added a piece of twine to the cute little metal fish embellishment as well as some buttons.  All the papers and embellishments are from the Bo Bunny Happy Tails Collection.

To finish off the layout, I added some flair from A Flair For Buttons and some cat wood veneers from Studio Calico.

I hope you enjoyed my layout.  Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Card

Hello friends! Just wanted to share a card I created for World Cardmaking Day using a free cut file from The Cut Shoppe that is being offered over at Scrapbook Nerd.

I cut the Haunted House and the Boo Star Cut Files on black card stock with my Silhouette Cameo and used the Halloween Magic Collection of patterned papers, chipboard embellishments and stickers from Bella Blvd.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you had a chance to be creative today and don't forget to download your free cut files here.  Have a great day!

Hello Handsome Layout

Happy Saturday!  Today I thought I would share a layout I created for fun of my youngest son when he was in fifth grade.

I used a cut file called Spin Cycle from The Cut Shoppe, a cut file for the title from Silhouette America and the True Friends Collection of beautiful patterned papers from Fancy Pants Designs as well as some flair buttons from A Flair For Buttons.

This was so much fun to create.  I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
