AdornIt Guest Design Projects, Take One

Sharing a couple of projects that I did for AdornIt over on their blog last week.  They have some really fun collections and I have some they sent that I didn't use, so you will be seeing more AdornIt on here, I am sure!

This first layout is with the Rainy Days & Sunshine collection.  I thought it was perfect for these pictures from our photo shoot, because as you can see, it was a little wet!  We weren't even sure we were going to get to have it, but everything worked out.  It's hard to believe that it has almost been a year since these were taken!

Supplies: Pattern Paper, Stickers, Tags -AdornIt (Rainy Days and Sunshine); Pen-Sharpie; Doily-Wilton; Adhesive-ThermOWeb; Photos taken by April Turner of UTurn Studios

These little border strips were perfect to make into banners.

And to tie in the banner theme, I used a journaling card from the collection to place my title on!  

Next up, I altered a box with some leftovers I had from a layout (you will see that in a few days!).  This was a box from Valentine's day that I had hung onto, just in case I wanted to make something with it!

Here is the inside.  I thought the flower card was sweet and I just trimmed it to fit inside the box as a little surprise.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope there is something FUN on your agenda today.  I will just have to see what kind of trouble I can get into I think!

Some ThermOWeb Pinterest Inspiration

Well, this post was sitting in the "queue"!  It was in draft mode and didn't post.  My bad for not scheduling it.

We had a Pinterest challenge over at ThermOWeb blog and this was the layout I came up with.  If you want to see the process of how I did it, my original posting is located HERE.  

These were just some random pictures I had taken of Higgins on the couch.  Not the best, but I was able to clean them up enough in Lightroom to use them.  I love the look on his face!  We will be glad when he gets back to himself after this ACL tear.  

Supplies:  Pattern Paper, Chipboard & Tags-Heidi Swapp (Hello Today); Pen-Sharpie; Adhesives-ThermOWeb (Zots, 3D Foam Squares, Mini Sticky Dot Runner)

Here is where I came up with the idea for the layout.  This is one of my pins on my Color Palette board

Now you see where I got the circles from!! 

The hexagons were on a 3x4 card and I just trimmed them out.  I wanted to use the list card and not the card that came with the hexagons.  Easy fix!

Tomorrow I will be sharing a project that I did for AdornIt last week!  Have a wonderful Monday.  Here is hoping mine goes well.  Payroll seminar for work!  Fun!

Umbrella Fun with 3 Bird's Studio!

It is an umbrella kind of day here on the blog!  I am sharing a card that I made for 3 Birds with the Graceful Season collection.

They say April showers bring May flowers, but since we haven't had a lot of those yet, I did a card with an umbrella theme.  And I am up over on the 3 Birds Studio blog with a layout full of umbrellas!  You can find that posting HERE.

Supplies:  Pattern & Foil Paper, Chipboard-3 Birds Design (Graceful Season); Cardbase-3 Birds Design Quilling Cardmaking Kit (Graceful Season); Adhesive-ThermOWeb; Twine-May Arts

Silhouette Cameo with the following cut file:
4 Umbrellas
Design ID #26837

If you look closely, you can see the purple foil paper shimmer.  These foil papers are quite sturdy and cut well!

I just popped up the farm around the window and then layered my umbrella and chipboard on top of it. The umbrella's under layer is the same foil as the words are cut out of.

I am super excited to get the day started.  I am taking Ella to do pet therapy at one of our senior centers and then she gets to go to my office for a visit to meet everyone!  Have a great weekend!

You Make Me Happy with Gossamer Blue

I am so far behind on sharing my Gossamer Blue layouts.  The "blogging" break did not help that at all!   This layout is one that I did with my December kit, I think?!  I would look it up for sure, but I am blogging from the couch and just too darn lazy to go get the external hard drive to look it up!

I loved this paper that was in the kit and wanted to use it as a focal point of my layout.  I kept everything to a minimum, which is unusual for me!

Supplies-I am just not going to list them this time. Everything is pretty much from the kit, except the following:  Twine, Adhesive, Ribbon, Doily.

I thought the little "hi" flair was cute and wanted to use it with the picture.  Looks like Sheldon has just come up to say "hi" to Higgins!

Used a Uniball Signo pen in white to journal with.  I have got to get me a couple more of those pens!

And in other news, I was asked to guest design for AdornIt!  My posts will be up over on their blog all this week.  They have such cute papers and I had a lot of fun creating with them.  You can find their blog HERE.

Wee Little One(s) with Imaginisce My Baby Collection

It's the My Baby release party this week on the Imaginisce blog and I had a layout up over there yesterday.  I know, BABY layout?!  From me?!  Yes, I do know people that have babies and not just people that have dogs!

This is an adorable set of twins that you have seen here on the blog before.  These are some of the only baby pictures they have, since they were adopted.  I wanted to combine them on the page, but for each to have a "separate" area.  Since there are color combos for both boy and girl, it worked perfectly!

Supplies:  Pattern Paper, Die Cuts-Imaginisce (My Baby, Boy and Girl); Cardstock-American Crafts; Adhesive-Therm O Web

Emma's little cute face!  I cut around the sheep, so that I could tuck the picture into it.

There are three of each die cut in the packages, so that worked out great for my title!

Well, that's all from me today!  Thanks for stopping by my little place on the internet!

Therm O Web and Elle's Studio Team Up

It's a two-fer today here on the blog!  Therm O Web and Elle's Studio have a product swap going on.  I had been eyeing the Everyday Moments collection, so I was super excited when I got it in the swap!

Here is the first of my layouts.  Emma's mom had texted me this picture of Emma and I had to scrap that hair!

Supplies: Pattern Paper, Die Cuts. Stamp-Elle's Studio; Doily-Wilton; Ink-Prima Chalk Ink; Glitter Dust Frame, Adhesives-Therm O Web

This is a Glitter Dust Frame from Therm O Web that debut at CHA this past winter.  I just cut it in half,  to accent the "life documented" tag.

Since I used the speech bubble paper, I thought the speech bubble journaling tag was a perfect fit.

Next up is a picture that I have had printed for awhile and just haven't had the mojo to scrap it!  Sheldon's ears are SO big here.  I love the stage where the "ears are bigger than the puppy"!

Supplies: Pattern Paper, Die Cuts. Stamp-Elle's Studio; Doily-Wilton; Ink-Prima Chalk Ink; Glitter Dust Frame, Adhesives-Therm O Web; Silhouette Cameo with cutting file

I love to use the Glitter Dust Photo Corners to accent areas.

I am digging view master die cuts, so you may see a few more of them from me!  I love this one, since it has the hearts instead of squares.  And I was happy that the doily fit right behind it and showed just a little.

I will be back tomorrow with an Imaginisce layout.  And yes, I have already scheduled the post!  Have a great day!

Pocket Page Take 1 with 3 Birds Studio

What a crazy week.  I have had some issues with an ovarian cyst that has pretty much kept me down all week.  It seems to be better now, thank goodness, but losing a week doing scrappy stuff is not fun at all!  If anyone has any tips on how to deal with these, please fill me in.  I would love to know.

Here today with a layout using 3 Birds Studio's Graceful Season collection.  PLUS, I am up over on the 3 Bird's Studio blog with the companion pocket page layout that goes with this layout.  You can check that out HERE.

Supplies: Pattern Paper-3 Birds Design (Graceful Season); Embellishments-3 Birds Design (Graceful Season); Adhesive-Therm O Web; Pen-Sharpie

I love this chipboard tag and since the dogs all seem like a fairy tale at times and always make us happy, I thought it was perfect to add to the page.

I combined some of the chipboard pieces here to make the pennant.  Then I used one of the 3D embellishments to enhance the little tag from the 6x6 mini pad.

Come back tomorrow, I will be sharing a couple of layouts I did for Therm O Web using some Elle's Studio that I have been wanting to get my hands on!  Have a great Monday!
