One for Scrapaneers

Here is a layout I did for the March Champions program at Scrapaneers, using the kit from Karla  Dudley, the templates from Tiffany and the cut out techniques.

The amazing news is that I was asked to join another person and work on the blog over at SSD. This makes me a SugarBabe! I was so excited to be asked to join the team. I’ve already written my first blog post, started the second and we’ve planned out the next week. Excited much? I think we both are. So later I’ll be sharing some layouts done as a Babe instead of for my wonderful Sweet Shoppe Designers.

For The Digital Press

As you might have guessed if you’ve seen ANY of my layouts, I am a big proponent of mixing and matching. I love to mix designers, colors, styles… you name it. The new Special Edition monthly collection at The Digital Press is a DREAM for people like me. I was in absolute heaven over the past several days! Not having all these extra days off from the holidays is definitely going to impede my scrapping time later this year.

Two for The Lilypad

Tommy is 20

This kit from Just Jaimee and Studio Basic about sweets and indulgences made me think of Tommy’s birthday.

Pantone Game

I have several layouts on my list to do and some have a LOT of photos to encompass to make the story feel done. It occurred to me that Amy  Martin’s new Project Life Grids would be perfect for this. And these cute frames from Kim Jensen are a nice way to add visual interest. This one is about the photo scavenger hunt from our last DigiSis weekend.

Another Birthday Layout for Elysse

I just HAD to document Ashley’s “You don’t waste 12 1/2 % ” quote from that night.

Journaling reads:
Mana gave you several small champagne bottles as a 21st birthday gift. As the girls were getting all dressed up to go out dancing, one of them found the stash of little bottles. Ashley, Sara and Natalie opened some and tasted it. The looks on their faces were absolutely priceless! I don’t think any of them appreciated the dryness of it but as Ashley said “You don’t waste 12 1/2 %” (the alcohol content).
So that became the quote of the evening! You girls each used champagne bottles as props in their impromptu photo shoot before they all left to go out. You wanted to make sure that Mana got to see that her gifts were appreciated. They didn’t like the taste of the champagne but they did drink it anyway… because you know – you can’t waste 12 1/2 %!

More layouts

I am fairly up to date on my P365 now.  I used Cilenia’s new Creative Musings Feb02. It reminds me so much of spring! I’m digging all the new flowers and butterflies they are putting out at the Digital Designer Shop. I decided to use a new kit each time for P365 and to try to use a number of items from each kit so that I’m not hoarding all my “pretties” for the future. The bright yellow in this kit just called to me.

Templates – Wild Blueberry Ink and Joey Lynn Designs Project 365, Papers and elements – Cilenia Curtis Creative Musings Feb 02, Font – Fertigo Pro and Pea Kate

I also realize there is another 2 page spread I haven’t posted yet! I feel pretty darn current when I’ve actually scrapbooked my birthday party AND did it within 2 days! I wanted to use Honey Scraps new CU textures, that basket weave is REALLY pretty! I used the eyedropper to pull a color from my blouse and then applied the texture using soft light. Once I put the black butterfly on the page, I started pulling other black and white accessories. I just love a layout that makes me use so much of my stash!!
