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!

I'm back with another layout for More Than Words challenge. If you haven't checked them out go give a peek. Chock full of talent! This will also go into Lindy's Stampgang color challenge. Click their name for how to enter, and if you haven't used Lindy's, what in the world are ya waitin for!

Here's More Than Words inspo board

This is Lindy's color board

My layout was inspired by scrapbook.com's music challenge hosted by Amanda on the forum. I have so much fun with it! My song was Higher Love by Steve Winwood and the twist was NOT to use love in your title :)

My process video -

I loved doing this layout! This is my youngest and my granddaughters having a blast at the beach this past summer. I used 7 Dots paper which I've had for ever in my stash, then did stenciling and lots of lovely misting with Lindys. Stamping the background adds more texture to the layout. The kaisercraft clear acrylic stamp is a fave for me. The title was cut with my silhouette cameo. I cut it 6 times then layered it on top of each other for dimension. A bit tedious but such a great effect!

This was just a fun one for me. Sometimes they come together with no struggle :)

Lindy's mists used -

Mad hatter mint
Cosmopolitan pink
Fuzzy navel peach
Cockle bells coral
Clambake beige

Show Me The Joy

Hi Friends! I'm here with a layout I did for a few challenges. The title was inspired by the music challenge over on scrapbook.com and the design itself is for More Than Words and Lind'ys Stamp Gang. Click on their names to go to their sites!

Here is the More Than Words inspo board -

Here is Lindy's color board -

This is my layout -

What's worthy of celebration more than love? My daughter and son-in-law have been married for five years now, and the bling is strong in this my friends! lol Some blingy dots and Glitter snow texture paste for some extra sparkle! The background got treated with lovely Lindy mists. The title is from the song Brother What Happened from Muddy Magnolias. The paper line is Bo Bunny's Woodland Winter. I cut the title with my cameo as well as the pretty trees and snowflakes.I used some stickles in the middle of a couple of the snowflakes. The ones in the top right corner are glittery foam. The page just says snowy fun and yes we do get lots of snow in the mountains here in so cali.

Lindy mists -

Glory of the seas gold
I'm late I'm late slate
Steel shimmer
Down the rabbit hole
Creme brulee cream

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out these great challenge sites!

Beautiful Day

Hiya friends and Happy New Year to you! Hope you all had a loving and beautiful holiday :) I want to share the gift I made for my mom. This is a layout using beautiful  Maja papers which I've been hording for quite awhile. The pic is so special and I put it in a gorgeous shadow box frame for her. She loved it which I knew she would -

I used some homemade texture paste and stenciling, lots of lindy's mist splats all around, Creative Embellishments chippies done up with lindy's, stamping and layering.

I hope you like it! Thanks for visiting.
