Sand Play - My Creative Scrapbook

Another 8x8 layout! Seriously, I don't think I'm ever going back to the 12x12. How are you guys? Tonight I played with the AMAZING June Sketch over at My Creative Scrapbook. For this project I used their June Limited Edition Kit.

Love this photo of Rianna. She was two at the time, playing in the sand at the lake. What cracks me up is her curled toes with the one big toe pointing out. Adorbs.

I fell in love with all the Kaisercraft Kaleidoscope papers in this kit, but I was only able to get two sheets and half of the Sugar Blooms flower package in a kit swap. I was happy. It was enough for me to create a layout and so I can play along with their sketches. Don't you just love those triangles?

I started off by layering the floral side of the Impasto paper over teal cardstock. I really loved the triangle and dashed line elements in this sketch. I cut triangles out of the chevron pattern in the Original paper, then masked my Static 6x6 Stencil with washi tape and dabbed it with Olive Vine Chalk Fluid to recreate the dashed lines element. I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Sketchy Banners journaling strip from white cardstock and colorwashed it with Worn Jeans Chalk Fluid. The title letters are from their May kit.

Here I cut the backside of both papers and some gray cardstock to mat my photo. To make the banner, I used a Taylored Expressions Pennant Border Die embossed with the Cuttlebug Polka Dot Embossing Folder, highlighted the raised dots with Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen, then dabbed Olive Vine and Teal Damask Chalk Fluid over it. The branches are Memory Box Grove Branch and Honeyblossom Sprig dies.

It's different from my regular style, but I really like how it turned out. It was fun experimenting with a little shabby chic. ;)

I hope you are all having a great week so far, thanks so much for visiting.
Hugs and Happy Scrappin'!!!!

Hey Smile - CCG#250 & Simon Says Stamp

YAY! The Color Combos Galore Challenges started up again and the new color palette is gorgeous! I used the Simon Says Stamp! You Are My Favorite June Card Kit, along with two of their fabulous dies - the Chevron Pattern Full Card Die and the Kelly Purkey Smile Die:

I was so excited to create this Color Combo using these colors. Totally loving the navy, aqua and pink right now and the gold just knocks it out of the ballpark!

Color Combos Galore Challenge #250

My Focus Challenge was from Inspiration Photo #2 - Focus On Patterns: Chevron. I chose to use the chevron die and filled some of the negative spaces with the aqua paper. I drew other inspiration from the bowl in Photo #1 to use the Smile Die and a circle punch, a gold glittered enamel dot from the glitter in Photo #2, enamel dots from the headboard studs in Photo #3, and finally the frame in Photo #4 prompted using script stamps and to layer white on pink.

Seriously, I REALLY LOVE how much fun it is to play with these Color Combos and Inspiration Boards. The combos always work so well together and it's such a great challenge to find and use all the inspiration I can.

Thanx so much for stopping by!!

Hugs and Happy Scrappin'!!!!
