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!

My first DT challenge…

Hello everyone!

Today’s my first Design Team challenge over at “The Studio Challenges” blog!

We were asked to scraplift a layout that was done by another designer.

Here’s my take on the challenge.

I used the adorable “Cooper & Friends” collection by PHOTO PLAY Papers.  I did A LOT of fussy cutting for this page! There’s 1 paper that had a ton of adorable dogs on it, so I cut out a bunch of the dogs and a fire hydrant (what’s a boy dog page without a fire hydrant? LOL).  Then to add some dimension to the page, I popped up some of my cut out elements and added some enamel dots.
