Scrappy Saturday…

Saturday brings on another scrapbook page.  I am finding that doing it this way, I am really enjoying my scrapbooking & it is going to make getting my pages done a lot quicker.

Of course, having a sketch from Maria helps big time – no thinking of a layout!

I used DSP – Blueberry Crisp for my layout & found this the perfect colours for my photos.

Scrappy Saturday…

I’ve created this page for the challenge over at Scrap, Love, Create  This is Maria’s first Scrap Challenge, so thought I would give it ago.  I am hoping that it will force me to create more pages & finally get some scrapbooking completed.
For my page –
I used Not Quiet Navy Cardstock for the main page, cut a piece of DSP – Blueberry Crisp, punched a border & layered a piece of Sahara Sand along the bottom
I then cut a longer & wider pice of Sahara Sand Cardstock & adhered DSP – Blueberry Crisp over the top – as per the sketch
I mounted my photo onto Whisper White Cardstock & then Pacific Point Cardstock & adhered to the top of the DSP
I randomly stamped images onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock using Not Quiet Navy & Sahara Sand inks & punched the corners using my Photo Corner Extra Large Punch
Adhere these to the top right of the photo & bottom left of the photo
For the names, I printed them out using Not Quiet Navy font colour, cut it out & adhered to the middle of my plaque which I had stamped directly onto Whisper White Cardstock & cut out.
The plaque was then adhered underneath the photo
I printed the heading using my printer & Not Quiet Navy font colour, randomly stamped the image along the bottom & sides of the heading, adhered it to Not Quite Navy & Sahara Sand Cardstock
I adhered the heading to the main page
Using the same image & Not Quiet Navy ink, I randomly stamped along the bottom of the page – I think it finishes the page off a little more
For my flowers, I punch 9 Scallop Circle using photocopy paper, randomly stamped them in Not Quiet Navy & Sahara Sand, scrunched them, popped a bit of glue in between the layers, adhered Basic White Peal to the centre & scrunched them again.  I then opened & played with the flowers until such time as I was happy with the look
Adhere these flowers to the DSP on your page

Monster BIrthday…

What started out as a birthday card for one of my brothers quickly turned into a Monster Birthday for a boy!  Why?  Your guess is as good as mine.  So back to the drawing board for them tomorrow or maybe the next day!

I’ve had this set for a couple of months.  It is one of the ones I think I had to have but have never used it.  I found myself quiet enjoying making my monsters and just didn’t have enough room to put more of them on.

Christmas Pressies…

I’ve been asked to make 12 Post-It Notes for small Christmas Gifts.  I wanted to keep them simple & not have too much on the front.  With being in your bag all the time, they tend to get knocked around a lot, so keeping them simple suited the purpose.
I’ve kept with the basic Post-It Notes Holder, as I don’t think you can beat a classic.  It is so easy to make.
Cut a piece of cardstock 6 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
Score at 3 1/2″ & 4″
Embellish as desire

In this case, I printed all the names on the pc.
How easy is that?
