My Teddy *Jillibean Soup*

Happy Friday! I have a layout to share that was up on the Jillibean Soup blog yesterday. I like to try to capture some of those everyday things. My son's Teddy was something that I knew I needed to scrap.

Nothing like lots of alpha stickers to play with on a page! I am happy with how this turned out!

Thanks for visiting!

Gift bags *Sweet Stamp Shop*

Happy Monday!

I created a couple of little gift bags for the Sweet Stamp Shop a few weeks ago. Such a cute little stamp set called Cheese Please...

I put a red tag to use, stamped on the red tag and again onto peach patterned paper and once more on white. I layered the pieces of the images on using different height of foam dots.

And of course with chalkboard being so hot today, I couldn't resist a little white heat embossing powder on a black tag. I used my Brilliance ink pad in white to smudge around the edges.

A couple of quick and easy ideas to dress up a treat bag.

Thanks for visiting!

Festive Friday!

Happy Friday! I have a card to share today ;) I pulled out some Jillibean Soup Holly Berry Borscht and played a little.

Kinda loving the die cuts package. And the 6x6 paper pad.

Have a great day!

Up, up and Away *Pink Paislee*

Good day! I had a layout posted yesterday on the Pink Paislee blog. My theme was paper play. I chose to use the very trendy quilt-look and apply it to my style. Here's what I created:

I cut five 1.75"x1.75" squares from each of the four yellow patterned papers in the Hello Sunshine 12x12 paper pad. I cut each square in half on the diagonal to create two triangles. I created a repeating pattern with the triangles.

Using just the yellows worked well to create a background that doesn't take away from my pictures.

I layered in a few different pieces of ephemera for finishing touches on the page.

I really enjoyed creating this page! Thanks for stopping in!

Halloween is coming! *Jillibean Soup*

Happy Wednesday! I am looking forward to this weekend. It will be the long, Thanksgiving week for Canadians. Don't know what I will do with the extra day, but I am pretty sure I can fill the time ;)

I have a Halloween project to share with you that I created using Jillibean Soup products. It was up on the blog last week.

I used the chalkboard base, a mix of green and grey patterned papers and the bits and pieces from the new Halloween collections.

I layered paper together to create the grass and the house.

I used my stamp brushes to colour the pumpkins.

I used my white stamp brush to create the moon (I drew it in pencil first).

The finishing touches included the bats and stars. Overall, I am happy with the look but most importantly, I had loads of fun making it.

Thanks for stopping in!

Adventures in baking *Pink Paislee*

Hello! How many photos do you have that you have avoided scrapping? They aren't 'perfect', they look a little yellow or out of focus? Well, I have some really yellow photos that I wanted to scrap. They were too off to be fixed by software and moving them to black and white took away from some of the fun details of the pictures. Soooo...

I scrapped them. I chose to use off white background (these read a little grey IRL). I backed the pictures onto a light turquoise, which helped balance some of the yellow. I also incorporated color in small amounts, away from the pictures, to avoid highlighting the yellowness of the pictures.

I popped the chipboard letters for some dimension. I also added some stamps to the layout under the spots where the clusters of chipboard pieces will go.
I hope that I've inspired you to scrap all the photos you love, not just the perfect ones!
Have a great Monday!
