In honor of the upcoming Independence Day celebrations, the owner of Scrap That Moment -- our new scrapbooking store here in town -- asked me to design a couple of layouts using the Jordan Collection by Treehouse Memories.
My older daughter sent me this photo of her two boys at a monster truck show last year. It goes great with the red, white and blue papers! I used the new July sketch from My Sketch World:
The stars were cut from chipboard with Spellbinders dies, inked and then painted with silver glitter paint.
And this little firecracker is my youngest granddaughter, Anna. She was thrilled with her flag shirt and star shirt, as well as that little pinwheel (remember those? I loved those too as a kid!) The sketch is from Sketch Inspiration. The beautiful sparkly brads are from Creative Charms.
I'm happy to be continuing on the Master Chef Challenge Team at Cookin' Up Creations! Each team member was asked to create an "I Am ...." layout as part of the new team's introduction. The papers are My Mind's Eye and Jenni Bowlin. Lynette Daniel, owner of Scrap That Moment, took the photo; she said I needed a new avatar photo and I suppose she was right!
After our month-long Birthday Bash Celebration at Cookin' Up Creations, the Blue Plate Special challenges are back! Today's challenge is to use this sketch from Nuts About Sketches, along with photos that involve water and the color blue or green.
I turned the sketch and simplified it for this layout, using papers from Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye and Jillibean Soup:
I used a kit from Sweet Peach Crop Shop; and also used a layout by design team member Angie Gutshall for further inspiration. I loved the way she used those little cloud stickers and chipboard butterflies.
Thanks for looking; have a happy (and safe!) Fourth of July weekend!
