Another Scrapbook Lay-Out & OLW

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Just a reminder, this weeks One-Layer Wednesday Challenge can be found on Susan's blog.  It's another fun challenge.  I hope you have a chance to play.

I'm excited to share with you this weeks scrapbook lay-out using another scrapbook title from Pam's Ebay Store (P.S. I Love Scrapbooking)!  With this lay-out I wanted to highlight the title, so  I decided to work with just one  photo.  I also added bling to the title.  I really like the look of the "one photo" lay-out. 

Paper Used: Bazzill - Solid Cardstock, Bella - Designer Papers
Scrapbook Title - P.S. I Love You Scrapbooking
Accessories: Bling (for Scrapbook Title), Label Punch, Pennant Die Cut- My Favorite Things, Twine

Squealing With Excitement...!

Thursday, May 24, 2012

I was chosen to be a part of the P.S. I Love You Scrapbooking Design Team. This is my very first design team position, and I couldn’t be more excited!

Pam, the owner and designer of P.S. I Love You Scrapbooking offers a unique line of scrapbook titles in her Ebay Store. Of course, she carries all of the popular themes like Baby, Family, Sports, and School, but she also has those hard to find to find travel destinations like Belize, Costa Rica, South Africa, and St. Croix, just to name a few. You’ll also find unique titles like Swim Meet, My God Parents, Ground Zero, Moose Hunting, and 4 Wheeling. Pam really has a wonderful selection of titles for all your scrapbooking needs. I hope you’ll stop by her store.

Below, I used her “Georgia” title for my two page lay-out.

Here is a close up of the title.
And here is a close up of some of the embellishments I used.
I'll share a few more lay-outs I've done done with other scrapbook titles from Pam's shop next week.

Thanks for stopping by.

One-layer Wednesday (OLW89)

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Welcome to this weeks One-Layer Wednesday challenge.  I am very excited to be your host this week!  I have to say, Heather is definitely a hard act to follow.  Wasn’t that an amazing challenge she gave us last week?

This weeks One-Layer Wednesday challenge ( #89) is Something SweetMake a card with a sweet image.  Anything you think is sweet.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

I just love California strawberries.  There's nothing sweeter, and they just scream Summertime to me!

OLW89 Rules

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of card stock folded in half. NO other layers allowed.

2. Make a card with a "sweet" image. Embellishments should be kept to a minimum.

3. Upload your creation somewhere on the Internet, and then link to it using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. Please make sure to link directly to the card and not just to your blog so people will be able to find it easily!

4. Have Fun...!

Stamps:  Papertrey Ink & Memory Box (Background Stamp)
Paper: Stampin' Up
Ink: Memento Desert Sand, Cantaloupe & Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy, Spring Moss
Accessories: Ribbon, Bling, Post-It Notes

Have a sweet week! 

One-Layer Wednesday 88

Monday, May 21, 2012

This week Heather is hosting the OLW, and her challenge is to make a "mini masterpiece".  The rules; the stamped image can be no larger than 2" x 2".  A sentiment can be added to the outside of the image area, if desired. What a fun challenge!

I was so inspired by Heather's beautiful sponging, I wanted to give it a try for my OLW card.  I won't tell you how many tries it took me to mask off a straight 2 inch square on my card front or how many Post-It Notes I wasted in the making of this card!

Stamps: Memory Box (Image), A Muse (Sentiment)
Paper: Stampin' Up Whisper White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, New Sprout, Summer Sky, and Danube Blue
Accessories: Stamp Positioner, Post-It-Notes, and Sponges

I hope you have a chance to play along!

Happy Mother's Day

OLW87 - Think Outside The Box

Friday, May 11, 2012

Jennifer is hosting the OLW challenge this week.  Her challenge is to make a shaped card. Anything but a square or rectangle.  I immediately went for my Nestibilities!

While my paper, ink and ribbon sat on the workroom table, I thought I heard them scream "enclosure card"! You know, the smaller cards you use to find in the department stores (at the gift wrapping counter) or at the florist Shop.  These gift enclosure cards were usually 2.5 x 3.5, a rectangle and anything rectangle or square is off the table for this challenge.  This little sweetie is approximately 3.75 round.

I really prefer a white inside for my cards, however, in saying that, the soft pink gingham is growing on me.

I plan to make a few more of these shaped cards to have on hand for the weeks ahead.  With the end of school so near and some thank you gifts to give, these smaller shaped cards will come in  very handy.

Stamps:  A Muse
Paper:  My Minds Eye
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories:  Nestibilities, Cuttlebug, Stamp Positioner, Ribbon
