Wrapping up the week...

I don't think I have posted these layouts. These are the ones I made last weekend. I finished a page tonight but my dd took my camera and can't post it yet. I made this first one here for Method Playground challenge. I stamped white and kraft cardstock to make patterned papers. I like how it turned out.

I know I used this title on a page recently. That was a before-recital photo a few years prior to this one. I wanted to come up with a different title but with the alphas I had left of those large chipboard letters, this was the only one I could come up with. The current challenge at Scrapping Out Loud is to use oversized embellishments/letters. I used a large Heidi Swapp flower also. Since there was no sketch provided this week, I used a sketch from Capture These Sketches. My layout doesn't look anything like it though.....

Our Dancer

I've been participating weekly sketch challenges since its launch in July over at Capture These Sketches. They just announced their new design team. So I decided to visit new members' blogs and the first one I went over was Scrap A Little by Helen Croft. Boy I was blown away! She posts lots of tutorials and I recognized some immediately. I know I visited her blog before.... thru the links on other blogs I'm sure. Anyway, I learned that she has a sketch challenge going on there and I started working on mine right away. She has 4 fab sketches for us to choose from and this challenge is also to use Basic Grey products. Here is what I came up with. I'll be posting some pages I created over the weekend in a couple of days.

The Joy of Life

I really enjoy participating the challenges over at Scrapping Out Loud. The current one is about time. I used a clock chipboard. I also used their sketch and the word of the week, moments.


I made this page based on Sketchy Thursday's sketch. I'm glad I was able to use some scrap papers.

Be a good one..

I'm glad I finally got around to do this one. I made this page and the card for October 1st challenge at The Studio. It is to use hand-cutting only, at least 3 patterned papers, and to make a card and an embellishment out of the left over papers. I realized when you don't use a trimmer or a punch and use only the scissors, it could be quicker. I also made a flower out of a strip of paper and made this simple card.

Halloween Fun

Halloween is approaching and I scrapped this photo from a Halloween 11 years ago. Halloween has lots of our fond Fall memories and when I think of Fall, I think of pumpkins (and pumpkin and Halloween. I created this page for Sketchy Thursdays' second chance challenge. I used 10.8 sketch on this.

I am 5.

There are so many projects I want to make but so little time. I feel I am always behind. I know it's not that I have to, but I feel pressured some times. Anyway, here is a page I created tonight using a Skethcy Thursdays sketch. It seems that I could do something better to it, but I really wanted to complete this page tonight. She had just turned 5 when these photos were taken.

I have a lot on my mind.

I am participating a challenge at American Crafts. It is to use 2 American Crafts products with a black & white photo. This is my first layout with a black & white photo. I also used a sketch from Pink Sketches. It turned out to be a simple page. I know I will create more pages with b/w photos. Everything, except flowers and a brad, is American Crafts.

Here is another page I made today using a sketch from Pencil Lines. They have posted several great sketches (some new ones) for this weekend crop. I wish I had more time to work on them.

Happy Halloween

I am posting this layout I just finished. This was created based on a sketch from Pencil Lines.


Pencil Lines is celebrating their 3rd anniversary by having a weekend crop. I just finished this page using sketch #49.

Since Halloween is approaching, I chose these photos for this page. This was done for the current challenge at Scrapping Out Loud. It is to use raw chipboard. I had never used them this way but I love that!! I also used their sketch of the week. My dd used to love Pocahontas at that age and when I saw this costume, I grabbed it right away. She had a great Halloween.

I created this page using a sketch from That Scrappy Girl. Julie created it and I am a big fan of her sketches and her work!! I scrapped this photo taken at Disneyland. We took our dd there for the first time and this photo holds lots and lots of memories :)

Catching Up

I was behind posting again. These are my latest pages. Now I'm caught up :)

My own

The current challenge at Scrapping Out Loud is doodling which I thought would be easy enough for me. I am not that creative to come up with some clever ideas but I knew I could draw something. BUT, what kept me from starting was the sketch. The more I looked at it the more blank I got. So I left it until today. And here is what I came up with. It turned out to be quite simple.

So happy

Here is a page created based on the current sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. I trimmed these 3 x 5 photos a little for this page. These photos are from our visit to Disneyland. We took our dd there for the first time. We used to live very close to it so we didn't plan it ahead but just decided to go that day. She didn't know what to expect and I'm sure it was very overwhelming for her. She was shy meeting with Disney characters.

Happy October!! It is a month of Halloween candies...I mean Halloween fun (LOL). Can't believe it's already October!! Anyway, I made this page for the Second Chance Challenge at Sketchy Thursdays. It is to create a page inspired by Halloween/fall candy using a sketch. I had these photos of my dd with a big bowl full of candies. She helped handing out candies to the trick-or-treaters.
