My Scraps and More: Got Talent Challenge #13!

Happy Friday!! Today on the My Scraps and More forums and FB group I have the next 
Got Talent challenge! For your page, you need to create a list; whether it be a top ten, a list of favorites, or events in your life right now.  

For my page, I typed out ten random facts about my daughter, Hailey! I used Simple Stories' I Am collection (which never gets old!).  

My title are black foam Thickers from American Crafts....they go with pretty much any project!  I added a cute heart/arrow from the I Am collection as well as a gold foil chipboard heart and coordinating enamel dots! 

I tend to use my typewriter for journaling....makes my pages so much more neat!  I should really use my handwriting...but I don't always like how it looks. 

Showing one of the cute I Am chipboard frames as well as matching Bradz and chipboard.

I heart banners!! Love this gold accented chipboard banner! 

 I also added in this wood veneer word from Evalicious! When Audrey brought them into the MSAM shop, I bought all of them!  They are lovely for accenting your page or just as a title!

I added another small chipboard frame with more I Am embellishments!

Have a great day!

Clear Scraps: First Day

Hello everyone! Last week my kiddos went back to school. So today on the Clear Scraps blog I have a layout using the Wire Mixer and Echo Park's Teacher's Pet! I love love love the can use them as a stencil as well as an embellishment! 

I first placed my Mixer on my cardstock and used Dylusions Spray Ink in Sunshine Yellow.  I quickly cleaned it off so I could use it on my page.  My title is a cut file from the Silhouette shop called   

I added in some of the coordinating Teacher's Pet Element Stickers, as well as a wooden veneer star from Studio Calico and enamel shape from Teresa Collins. 

I used my hand punch to create a small banner at the top of my page with different patterns from the collection. I then stitched through using my sewing machine. 

Showing more of the coordinating stickers as well as a gold paper clip from 
Teresa Collins Studio Gold collection.  

This cute wooden veneer letter is from Freckled Fawn...I layered it on top of a Teacher's Pet label sticker.

My Scraps and More: Remember

Today on the My Scraps and More Forums I have a layout for the Mix It Up Monday Challenge using Dear Lizzy's new Documentary collection!  This line is so fun to create with as the prints are bold and the colors bright!

I used one of the Documentary Word Thickers for my title as well as added strips of Amy Tangerine's new thin washi from her new collection!  (that was a must have!) 

The ephemera pieces from Documentary are so cute without being too girly! Also, I am loving the wood veneer buttons!! 

Also new in this collection is a roller stamp with new sentiments!  I think I have pretty much all that AC has released LOL 

I used two of my hand punches to create this fun banner across the upper corner of my page! Of course, nothing is complete without some stitching! :)

Paper Camellia: Dream Big

Today I'm sharing a layout I created using Paper Camellia's Main Kit for August!  What fun colors are included in this kit!  My cute nephew is the star of my page; we visited a local splash pad/playground this summer and he's always so photogenic!  

 I used the Puffy Stickers from Pinkfresh Studio's Happy Things collection as well as a portion of one of the tags from Fancy Pants Designs.  Also you can spy one of the Exclusive Paper Camellia Gold Glitter Hearts!

The Main Kit includes five assorted frames from Crate Paper's Poolside collection. Here, I used one of the gold accent frames with another Puffy Sticker. You also receive a sheet of the Wooden Veneer Stickers from Pinkfresh Studios. I used my gelatos to color a few of the pieces!

My Scraps and More: Meet Me Under the Stars

Hello!  Yesterday I had a layout up on the My Scraps and More blog using Cocoa Vanilla's Hello Lovely collection.  I am a big fan of this great Australian company! The quality of paper is awesome!   I'm looking forward to their new collections coming later this fall! 

I love this photo my sister in law took of my daughter last month at the beach on Lake Michigan.  It's not perfect but it captures the fun moment Hailey was in with sparklers and just being a kid. Using silver foil paper, I used a fun cut file for my title from Just Nick Studio.  

Showing some of the vellum hearts that are one of the embellishments from Hello Lovely.  

I love the many prints and colors in this collection....I am a big fan of layering! I also added washi tape from my stash as well as used a stamp from Technique Tuesday. 

Using my Teresa Collins Fiskars punch, I created a banner across the top of my page. I added in brads from my stash to give some dimension.  

I had a journaling spot from an old scrapbook kit and thought it matched perfectly!  

I used one of the new flair badges from Evalicious' Photo Shoot collection.

My Scraps and More: Life is Sweet

Hello! Hope you are having a good weekend!  It's been beautiful here in Central Illinois...perfect summer weather!  One of my favorite summer treats is ice cream! Today I'm sharing a layout I created for a My Scraps and More challenge!  My husband and I enjoyed some delicious waffle cones at Six Flags in June and I took a fun photo of the two of us!  

I used American Crafts Shimelle's True Stories collection for my layout. On my background, I used The Heart Burst cut file from The Cut Shoppe! I cut both the specialty vellum and a patterned paper and stitched through with my sewing machine.  

I used a wooden veneer word title from Evalicious' Life's Sweet collection! I am so in love with these fun embellishments!  

Here, I used one of the tags from the True Stories Die Cut shapes for my journaling. I also added a cute ruler and heart from the package. From my stash, I used some bright pink bakers twine from my stash, as well as fun flair from {a flair for buttons}. 

I love how the layering of vellum and patterned paper turned out!  I also layered more colors under my photo as well as added more die cuts.  

I also love the Cloud Die Cuts!! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Check out the My Scraps and More shop to see this collection plus much more NEW items!  Have a wonderful night!
