Stamping & Coloring on Cards

As part of the 24-Hour Craft Day on HSN last month, I created several projects using American Crafts Chromatix markers. Unfortunately, the markers sold out and are no longer available at HSN.com, but I thought I would still share with you what I made.

READY SET GO

For this card, I combined stamps together with a couple of the phrase stickers from the Inspired Inc. Mega Stickers Kit.

SPRING

For this card I tried coloring the markers directly to a solid floral stamp. I love the way the colors mixed together before stamping them on the paper. The card sentiment is again from the Inspired Inc. Mega Sticker Kit.

ST. LOUIS

And finally, I created a scrapbook page with a stamped city skyline. I love the watercolor effect I was able to achieve using these markers. So fun!

That’s it for today! I’ll be back again soon with more shares. I hope you are having a lovely Spring!

My Crazy Fun Family

The best thing about my family is that they are so much fun to hang out with! I love how silly they can be together. We just have a great time being together! A few summers ago we went on a road trip. When we arrived at our destination, the kids were so happy to be there, that they jumped out of the car and started running and jumping around. I caught this fun picture of them and decided to feature it by itself on this next page using the Noel Mignon Social Butterfly kit.

MY CRAZY FUN FAMILY

Circles are a really fun way to frame out a single photo. Here I cut out a large circle from the Crate Paper Boys Rule Race Track paper.

I also had some fun with chevrons on this page. The two sections at the top of the page were hand cut from patterned papers. I accented them with a pair of Jillibean Soup Wood Sprinkles (LOVE these things!).

Do you have a silly photo that deserves to be center-stage on a layout? Well, pull it out! Print it at a nice, big 5×7 size and have fun recording that memory!

Have a great weekend!

Bits of Color

Happy Friday! I’m up on the Noel Mignon blog today with another page using the Social Butterfly Kit. The colors of this kit are ones that I naturally  gravitate towards … I just love bright happy colors! But sometimes papers with lots of color can be tough to scrapbook with because they compete with the photos. When this happens, I like to keep the background simple and add color in smaller areas around the page.

SCOUTING MEMORIES

My son’s scout leader sent would send out a newsletter each month containing photos of the activities they had completed the previous month. I love having photos from events I’m not able to be there for, and I know my son will appreciate being able to look back at some of these times later in his life. :)

For this page, I used white cardstock as my background, adding droplets of spray mist in two different colors for more interest. I also inked the edges of the cardstock with the orange ink pad included in the kit. I placed all of my photos together on a single mat. I broke up the four-square grid of photos with one of the My Mind’s Eye Flair Pins topped with a die cut and accented on either side with a cork arrow sticker.  Along the top of the photos I added a hand cut strip of the speech bubble patterned paper by Simple Stories. I used a couple of the bubbles to add details about my photos.

Along the bottom of the page, I added another hand cut bit of patterned paper paired with a length of the fabric tape. The smaller letter stickers of the title help to carry the color orange around the page.

Thanks for popping by today! I hope you have some fun things in store for the weekend. Me?! I think I will be doing a bit of Spring Cleaning both inside and outside of our home.

See you again soon!

Cookie the Dog

Camryn has always had an affinity towards stuffed animals … her collection is ever-growing. :) So naturally, when Grandpa and Grandma took her out for her birthday lunch and shopping trip she chose ANOTHER stuffed animal toy as a new friend.

COOKIE THE DOG

I used the 3 Birds Graceful Season Paper collection to scrapbook this page along with the 3D Embellishment Kit and Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil Set. Inside the 12 x 12 paper pad are a variety of darling papers … one of them was a large chevron print in multiple colors. I cut the blue chevron from each sheet (there are 2 of each design), and decided to overlap them in opposite directions to create a frame for my photo grouping. I really like how it turned out!

the smaller photos is framed with a stamp frame from the Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil set with a 3D floral sticker accenting the corner. I also added a couple more pennant shapes stickers below and placed my title across the top.

On the left side of the page, I handcut the large floral element from another sheet of the 12 x 12 patterned papers. I layered a photo on top and then layered together more of the 3D Embellishment stickers and Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil stickers to create the circular accent.

These sweet papers have stolen my heart. If you’d like to see more projects using this collection, be sure to stop by the 3 Birds Blog!

Until tomorrow!
