Creative Scrappers Reveal #262

Hi friends!! Happy Sunday! I don't know how the weather is where you are, but here it is cold and snowy..perfect weather for scrapping the day away, and I have just the thing to inspire you! The newest sketch from Creative Scrappers!

Sketch #262 is so fun with the chevron background, and it leaves it open for so many different interpretations! Here is my take:

I changed it up a bit and used just one larger photo instead of the three small...when I saw the sketch, I instantly thought of this photo, so I had to figure out how to make it work (I already had it printed lol) I used the fun Notable collection from We R Memory Keepers, which I am so in love with! The colors are fabulous!

If you would like a chance at a prize from this month's sponsor:

Simply upload your layout based on this sketch or sketch #261 by February 28th! Have a great day, and take time to create something you love!

Hugs & Kisses

Hi friends!! What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Valentine's Day? Love, right? That is how I felt the minute I saw this photo...the quality is horrible, but this so sums up my baby boy and his feelings of his first Vday! I knew instantly I wanted this layout to be bright and fun...and I wanted to do a large title, not something I normally do. I found this file in the silhouette store, and knew it was perfect.

I also really wanted this to have a valentine feel, but not use "traditional" valentine colors. The pinks and navy blues in the Welcome Spring line were perfect for this!

Adding in a few fun elements and layers, I have a very fun and "love"-ly valentine's day layout!! :)

Supply List:

Imaginisce: Pattern Paper ( My Baby, Welcome Spring), Die Cut Tags Pad (Welcome Spring)
American Crafts: Cardstock, Knock Outs Punches, This to That foam adhesive

Creative Scrappers Reveal #261

HI friends!! I'm here today to share the new sketch that went up at Creative Scrappers!! Another great one!!!

I chose to go SUPER simple with my layout this week...was kind of a nice change...not sure I'll stick with this simple style, but it was a fun change. Here is my layout:

I used the Autumn Crisp line from American Crafts. I love the colors in this collection, and thought it went really good with my photo. Just a few simple layers, and I called it good. :)

Make sure you head over to Creative Scrappers and see inspiration from the rest of the team. Also, play along and link up your layout for a chance at a prize from our sponsor:

Hope you all have a great week, and take time to create something you love!!

So Foxy

Hi Friends!! I am in full on valentine mode! I love this special day of celebrating those you love...I think you should tell/show them everyday, but having that one special day to get as mushy as you want is pretty fun.
I am not much of a cardmaker, so normally, as much as I hate to admit it, I end up buying valentine's for my family. This year though, I am determined to make them. They may be simple, but they will be from my heart, and that's what it's all about!

So, when I saw the cut apart paper from Jillibean Soup in the Book Of Love kit from Noel Mignon, I knew this was going to help me a TON! Then I saw the " So Foxy" card and knew it would be perfect for my hubby...anybody that knows us knows that that is SO us.

So, here is the card I created:

Simple, but cute, right? I think he will love it....even though my 5 year old informed me that, "it's way too pink for Daddy!" lol.

Don't forget to join us next week for our Book of Love crop on the Noel Mignon facebook group!! It's going to be a blast!!!
