Fussy cutting challenge…

Hello everyone!

There is a new challenge today over at The Studio Challenges.

The challenge is fussy cutting! This is actually something I love to do so I really enjoyed this challenge. On this layout I cut all the leaves out from a 12×12 sheet of paper.

My background paper is from Crate Paper’s “La La Love” collection and the rest of the paper is from the Carta Bella “Our Hose” collection (with the exception of the triangle paper which is from an older Fancy Pants collection).

The chipboard title, “best friends” is from Creative Embellishments.

When I do a lot of journaling on my pages, I like to write everything out in pencil first to make sure it all fits the way I want it to and then go over it in marker.  Well, I used up the last of my lead in my mechanical pencil and I could not find another pencil in my house for the life of me! LOL! So, I said a prayer and started journaling in marker in hopes that it would all fit and it would be nice and straight.  I’m SO GLAD it turned out!  😀

So head on over to The Studio Challenges blog and check out what the rest of the design team came up with.  And if you join in the challenge, make sure you share your creation with us! We love to see you work!

Happy scrapping!

Week 9…

Hello there.

I’m just popping in to share my week 9 layout for the “52 Favourites” challenge over at Paper Issues {Friends & Fans}.

I used papers from the Carta Bella “Our House” collection I purchased from the Paper Issues store.

The title “Sweet” is from my Jillibean Soup foam stickers I purchased a while ago.  They are a part of the Garden Harvest collection.

I was looking for little things to add as embellishments and pulled out my old heart punch from Epiphany Crafts.  Since I used some heart paper, I thought I would punch out a few hearts to add to the page.  In the end, I didn’t really care for the hearts I punched out, but the instead used the strip of paper I punched the hearts from! 😀

A few stickers, some enamel dots and roughed up paper edges and the layout was done!

My husband has to work tonight, so I plan on doing some more scrapbooking! I’m planning to work on my next design team assignment.

Happy scrapping!

With all my new stuff, I have no idea what I’m going to use for this weeks “52 Favourites” challenge.  I might have to participate in another challenge just so I can dig into ALL my new goodies! LOL!

It’s a super snowy day today and I would love to be scrapbooking, but I have a birthday present I’m knitting for a friend that has to get done, so today, knitting it is!!

If you’ve never checked out the Paper Issues store, have a look,  They carry the newest stuff all the time!!
