Creative Scrappers Sketch #226

Hello! Happy Tuesday every one. Here is another Christmas layout. When I was going through photos, I found these two very old pictures of my daughter sitting on Santa's lap. I set them aside to scrap and a few days later, the perfect sketch appeared on the Creative Scrappers blog. I was going to do a little journaling sort of like this...."what a difference a year makes or is it just because daddy is holding you" but silly me didn't leave enough room to journal (or maybe I just don't like how my writing ruins the page). Maybe I can write it on the back of the page! So here is my take on the sketch (and yes it is all BasicGrey paper, LOL):

I did make those chevrons all by myself!

Ho Ho Ho!

Hello! Here is  another Christmas layout. I am in a Christmas funk lately with my scrapping (or maybe just a little bit behind with the Christmas pages)! I made this layout for the Challenge Me Happy challenge #30. For this challenge, we needed to make your own embellishments. So I decided to make my own rosettes since they are all the rage right now! I am not sure if I like the two different color letters for the title yet. I might be taking a stamp pad to that H.

My Creative Sketches - August

I made this layout using the August sketch over at My Creative Sketches. I used a combination of Basic Grey papers: Wassail, Figgy Pudding, and Eskimo Kisses. I punched the edges with a Martha Stewart punch and used a little Tim Holtz Distress ink.

Here Comes Santa Claus

I made this layout for a swap on SCS. The theme of the swap was song titles and you had to use the title of the song as the title of the layout. My song choice was "Here Comes Santa Claus." There were a lot of rules for this swap so I hope I followed them all! There is a journaling tag tucked behind the photo mat. I machine stitched around the paper and made a beaded pin with beads from my stash. I used my Cricut to cut the flowers and flourish. All the DP is from Basic Grey and the card stock base is Bazzil.

SBPS #30 Double Page Layout

Hello and happy Tuesday! I can't believe August is over and September is here! Just a quick post today. Here is another layout I made for another secret sister over at SCS. It seems my most of my posts lately are for this particular swap. Hopefully that will change. Although I do love this swap!

I used a sketch I found online. My secret sister sent so many pictures and it was difficult to choose which photos to use. I picked nine out of 11 pictures. YES, nine pictures on a double page layout.

Supplies Used:
CS - Bazzill
DP - G.C.D. Studios
Brad- Making Memories
Eyelets - Eyelet Outlet
Punch - Martha Stewert
Die - Tim Holtz
Ribbon and buttons from my stash
