Use Your Stuff Challenge #265 - Bohemian Rhapsody

This one had me a little stumped what I wanted to create but I went with Crate Paper Cook Kid papers and embellishments, a Donna Downey stencil, Art Basics Light Paste and three different Heidi Swappe Color Shine mists.  The photos are Cole and Carter each enjoying a yummy donut.

Use Your Stuff - May 8th

I am up on the Use Your Stuff Blog today.  The challenge is to use feathers.  I used a stencil and light paste to create feathers and then used water colors to paint them.  This was way out of my comfort zone but I like how they turned out.  I used Fancy Pants Attwell on my page.

Happy Day after iNSD

Wow - there was so much fun going on yesterday for Inter-National Scrapbook Day.  I along with 9 other Cherries were hostesses on A Cherry on Top.  We had so much fun providing challenges, games and lots of chatting.  Most of the challenges are due 5/12 or 5/13 so there is still time to participate and win sprinkles (points) to use in the ACOT Store.  I hosted a Dinner Menu Challenge (details on the ACOT site) and this was my sample.

I can't believe it is May already and only two days before Inter-National Scrapbook Day.  Today, my layout was revealed on Sketches in Thyme.  I loved this sketch designed by Sara Scraps.

Use Your Stuff - Week April 24th

This week is my first time hosting a challenge at Use Your Stuff.  My challenge is to use circles on your project  There are so many options for creating circles - hand drawn, stitched, punched, die cuts, or cut files to name a few. I've used a cut file from Paper Issues and backed each circle with a piece of patterned paper from the Fancy Pants Joy Parade 6x6 paper pad. This photo is of me with my daughters, Stacie and Andrea and granddaughter, Emma.

Use Your Stuff - my first challenge

I am so excited to become a member of the Use Your Stuff Design Team.  There are so many fun challenges every month.  My first challenge as a team member is to use flowers.  I used lots of different types of flowers:  rub-on flowers, die-cut flowers, little planner paper flowers and even some of the sequins are flowers.




Here are some close ups of the flowers I used.

April Sketches in Thyme Reveal Sketch #271

Today I am sharing this fabulous sketch by Brenshevia and my take on the sketch.  I used a chevron cut file and backed them with a piece of pretty Pink Paislee patterned paper.  These lovelies are my granddaughter, Paige and her cheer buddies.
