Scraptastic Sketchy Thursday!

It's the last Thursday of the month and that means a new sketch challenge at Scraptastic Club!! For my layout I used the May project life kit "This Life Noted". I wasn't in the mood for straight lines and everything "neat" like I often do, but I wanted to have fun, play a little, rather than thinking about how it should be. And this is the result.

And a few close-ups: love the flairs!! 

I adore the exclusive Acrylic Words included in this kit: 

The title is a cut file from Kerri Bradford and was not included in the kit:

And this is this month's sketch: 

Like the sketch?? Why not play along? Just leave a comment below this blog post on Scraptastic's blog (click link) to submit your entries. You have until June 3rd at midnight to submit all of your entries for the 4 May Blog Challenges. The prize this month is $20.00 to spend at Scraptastic Club.
Can't wait to see what you'll do! 

Thank you so much for stopping by again today!

Two Scraptastic Club "Janglin' " Layouts

Today I've got two layouts up on Scraptastic Club's blog made with the fabulous May kit "Janglin'". 

The first layout I got for you is one created with just the main kit and is about my daughter desperately trying to buy tickets for a One Direction concert in Amsterdam.

I'm a huge fan of all Pinkfresh Studio goodies and was so happy to see a lot of their product was included in this kit!! Love the Pinkfresh Studio “Up In The Clouds” Ephemera like the heart with the gold scribbling and the “Up In The Clouds” Wood Dots:

And of course the fun flair buttons from Kaitlin Sheaffer! The one with the camera is my fave! (btw, does anyone know how to photograph these shiny flairs without the glare from outside?!! It frustrates me to no end!).

The color of the Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine Pink Foam Thickers is just awesome!

And then I made another layout, but this time also using the add-on and one of the stamps.This layout is about my daughter and one of her friends baking a strawberry cake. 

For patterned paper I only used the sheet of Scraptastic Journaling Cards (from the add-on kit). I just cut all the journaling cards from the entire sheet apart and more or less randomly placed my favorite cards on a sheet of white cardstock and adhered these straight away. I decided not to think too long about it and to just get on with it, because I knew I wanted to use lots of embellishments anyway. That way I would always be able to cover up any inconsistency, lol. Love the result!

Aren’t those Amy Tangerine clear stickers awesome (add-on kit)! Like the three strips in this photo and the large flower in the next:

I also love the alpha stickers from Webster’s Pages (Webster’s Pages #Happy Sticker Sheet – add-on). And for the finishing touch I machine stitched through the Jillibean Soup sticker:

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and I hope I gave you some inspiration to get started with the kit. For more info on kit subscriptions, go HERE

Have a great day!

Saturday Morning Rituals - October Afternoon

For the Scraptastic Store I did this October Afternoon "Saturday Mornings" layout. I love October Afternoon so much, I have to have all of their collections and if possible twice! (so I can use one and safe keep the other, lol). This collection is no exception … I have two of it!

Because on the Scraptastic fans facebook page people asked for more layouts with multiple 4"x 6" photos I used two on this layout. Here’s what I did. I used these photos of my youngest: it’s Saturday morning and he’s watching his favorite television series (Phineas & Ferb), while eating his breakfast, snuggled up on the couch under his blanket and with the teddy bear from school, who was staying over for the weekend. Are these photos perfect for this collection or what??

The use of the two 4″ x 6″ photos is a bit of an exception for me, but I really ike how it turned out.

And it's so fun there was a die-cut from a teddy bear in this collection as Mats had the bear from school staying over (de "logeerbeer")!

Supplies: October Afternoon – Saturday Mornings: Collection Kit, Syrup Paper, Grapefruit Paper, Crepes Paper, Omlette Paper, Bacon Paper, Word Stickers, Shape Stickers, Journaling Cards Tin Pins, Doo-Dads. 

If you're looking for this collection, then hop over to the Scraptastic Store because it's still available!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! Hope you’ll have a fab weekend!

Ocean Love - Pretty Little Studio

Happy Wednesday everyone! I've got a Pinterest inspired project I did for Pretty Little Studio I want to share with you. I really loved today’s photo and took inspiration from the sea theme and all the different colors in this photo. I used Pretty Little Studio's brand new “Treasure Island” collection and a photo of my oldest son playing in this old fishing boat. A perfect photo for this collection!

I really adore this collection, it’s perfect for all those summer photos taken at the beach or pool or just playing with water … I have so many of these!! And I adore the bright colors and not to mention the super cute diecuts!

As I said in one of my previous blog posts, I always love to use the packaging too and in this case I used the front sheet of the 8×8 paper pack and cut it into strips. I added a few more in different colors, because the paper pack is mostly blue colored and I wanted a multi colored layout because of the Pinterest photo.

Pretty Little Studio Supplies: Treasure Island Collection: patterned paper, vellum, flair, diecuts, confetti, tabs, cut-outs, stickers and word art.

And this is the Pinterest photo I got to work with:

Thank you so much for stopping by and if you want to see what the other designers are doing with this collection (or any other collection), then please visit Pretty Little Studio's blog!
