My Message

Hiya scrappy sistuhs :D I'm here with another layout for the amazing More Than Words challenge blog. Have you played along yet? No? Well click their name and go see!

The prompt this month is black and white and ONE color of your choice and the word is dream. Check it out it's gorgeous
Love it! There's just something about black and white :)

Here's my layout -

I laid my white paper an angle over the stripe and did some misting with lindy's. I then did some background stamping and stencil with texture paste. The strips of paper have been in my stash for so long I finally put them to good use. See, challenges come in handy! My little quote uses the prompt word Dream. The title is from a Bob Marley song, Three Little Birds which was chosen for me in the music inspiration challenge on scrapbook.com. Songs give tons of great title options :) I cut it on my cameo using four layers to give it depth.  A word about my layout orientation. I pulled a ton of inspo from Di Garling who is one of  More Than Word's founder's. She is truly an amazing talent and her work just leaves me speechless.

Thanks for visiting!

Have You Seen...

The newest swap craze Loaded Envelopes? They're so beautiful! I've done two now and love them. They are very dimensional so for me that works because pocketletters can't be quite as packed nor elaborate. You can make them as simple or fancy as you like. Here are pics of the two I've made -

There are rules to follow in the swaps that the host lays out, such as tags, wands, and enbellies for parameters to follow. The wands, oh my, how I love making the wands! If you search youtube you'll find some tutorials on them, and here's my video showing all the goodes I did -

Thanks for visiting! Have a blessed Easter if you celebrate,

Girls Night!

Well I'll be! Two posts in a month! I'm back with another layout for some of my favorite challenges. More Than Words is such an awesome challenge that gives you such great inspo to get those creative juices flowing! Click on their title to go and find out more, you won't be disappointed.

Here's the mood board for March -

Isn't it perfect! I love butterflies and use them a lot in my layouts.

The next challenge is Lindy's Color Challenge. I've shocked the crumbs out of myself and have entered twice in both of these for the month! I love all of Lindy's coloring products. From their mists to their embossing powders. They also have color shots that are so versatile. Click on their name to find out all the deets on the challenge.

Here's Lindy's color inspo board -

Here is my layout for these challenges -

The pic is of my daughters and I when we went out to see Magic Mike 2 in June of 15. We saw the first together on opening night and we went to this one on opening night too :D We also went to dinner and snapped this pic. It isn't the best pic, I took it with my phone, but it is an awesome memory! The papers are from Blue Fern Studios, and the flowers have been in my stash for a while. I did some stenciling with texture paste and background stamping. My title and butterflies were cut with my cameo.

Lindy's Colors
mad hatter mint
cosmopolitan pink
clam bake beige
cocklebells coral
freaky franken lime

This layout is also for the music inspo challenge on sb.com. My song was It's Raining Men by the Weather Girls and the twist was to NOT use a weather related word in your title. Let me say the lyrics aren't many inspiring layout material and it took me almost the whole month to decide on the pic and lyrics to use.

I hope you like my layouts, thanks for coming by!
