Good Times – ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Reveal

Hello everyone and Happy MARCH!! Spring is right around the corner!

I had an absolutely amazing time away. It was so much fun to surprise my mom by arriving a few days earlier than planned.  We really had an amazing time just the 4 of us and I can’t wait to do it again.  I didn’t take as many pictures as planned, even though Santa brought me a great new point and shoot camera that even takes underwater shots.  I think I was so busy being in the moment that I really wasn’t thinking about capturing the moment.

It is the first Friday of the month, which means it’s time for ScrapMuch? Team A’s double page layout!  I am using some of the pictures from the trip for this page. I also took a little bit of licence with the sketch this time, but not much. So here is what I created for this week:

Untitled

I used mostly my Jillibean Soup Sightseeing Stew pack for this layout.  It truly amazes me how many layouts I get from a paper pack, no matter which one I buy.  I grabbed some ruffled ribbon from my stash, some October Afternoon washi tape, some American Crafts thickers, some Evalicious wood accents, a flair button from Lawn Fawn, an accordion flower from Pink Paislee, a Heidi Swapp Minc chipboard element, a couple of cards from We R Memory Keepers for the journaling and heart accent, some jewels from Ki Memories and lastly some colour shine mist by Heidi Swapp.

And here is the sketch we used to work with for this week:

Friends – Sketch-y Friday Reveal

Hello and happy Friday! It’s once again time for a ScrapMuch? Team A Sketch-y Friday reveal! This is going to be a short and sweet post for me today because I’m blogging from my happy place and my laptop has decided to be inconveniently moody.

My layout this week features some of my amazing friends and I used the Simple Stories We Are Family paper pack again.  I am honestly amazed at how versatile this paper pack has been. The friends title is an American Crafts thicker, and I cut the ampersand on my Silhouette. Otherwise everything else on the layout is from the Simple Stories pack.

Paradise – ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Reveal!

Hello and Happy February!! 🙂

It’s the first Friday of the month, which means it’s time for another ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Team A 2 page layout reveal!

I am so excited to see February get here! It’s vacation month for me and I’m finally heading south to visit my happy place after 3 long years. So of course, past memories of my time there became the inspiration for this week’s layout.

So here is what I created for this week:

Untitled

And here are some detail shots:

Untitled

I used my Kelly Purkey stamps in blues, as well as some Teresa Collins stamps, because of the amazing waters, and orange because it’s one of the resort theme colours. Everything in the resort is white, silver and orange. That little Enjoy The View tag is from a treasure box from a vendor at a mega crop I was at in November.

Untitled

I love love love this title! It’s a Silhouette cut file that I filled in with black, printed on my laser printer, cut with the Silhouette and then sent through the Minc with silver foil. I also used an embossing folder on the second piece of patterned paper but on the reverse side to create a debossing effect. The flair up top is from Lawn Fawn. The washi is Bella Blvd and My Mind’s Eye.

Untitled

More shots of the debossing, the Tattered Angels stamp and some messy misting. I even dug into my stash and used some of my favourite 7Gypsies paper for this layout. Both grey pieces are from the same 7Gypsies line, as is the ribbon.  The accordion circle embellishment is from Pink Paislee.

So here is the sketch we had to work with for this week:

Today – ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Reveal

Hello everyone and happy Friday!

It’s also time for a ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Team A Reveal!

This week I am featuring a special little lady who turned 1 on December 1st.  I figured it was a fitting layout for this week, as this Sunday marks 1 year since her adoption into our home and hearts.  I’m talking about none other than sweet Tiffany.  She also has a Game of Thrones name of Tiffalyn Baratheon.  I’m not sure how I feel about her being a Baratheon… I digress.. Just like the photoshoot I did with Bella on her 1st birthday, I felt it was important to capture Tiffany’s 1st birthday too!

So here is what I created for this week:

Untitled

All patterned paper is Maggie Holmes for American Crafts. I fussy cut the flowers to create the circular elements. The polkadot heart, title, and 2 squares are all Heidi Swapp Minc products that I used rose gold foil on.  The pearls and chipboard ampersand are Pebbles. The floss is American Crafts. Cardstock is Bazzill Basics.

Speaking of Heidi Swapp Minc…. I am in loooooooove with her new CHA releases for the Minc! I can’t wait to get my hands on the reactive mist and ombre foils!!!  Had to believe the machine I never thought I’d use I have used on almost every layout since. I just love that metallic pop.

Here is the inspiration sketch for this week:

12185552_10153083140611039_4740593014306274375_o

As you can see I took a little liberty with the sketch this week, mostly because I was really inspired by those 3×3 Minc elements.

So now it’s your turn! Hop on over to the ScrapMuch? blog and see what the rest of team A has created for your inspiration!  I hope you get a chance to create your own sketch inspired pages to share with us!

Here is a run down of our Sketch-y Friday rules.  Just link up your creations in our sidebar to be entered into a random draw for our monthly prize.    You have until  January  29th, at midnight to participate in any of this month’s sketch challenges, each linkup tool will remain open until that date!  You may take some artistic license with your adaptation of the sketches, however if you choose to use a double page sketch for a single page layout you may only enter once per sketch, not once per side.

‘Tis The Season – ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Reveal

Happy New Year!

2016 is here upon us, and I hope it greets you all well.

Believe it or not, but it’s time for some ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Team A inspiration.  I actually have some scrapping plans this weekend. I figured I’d use these last few days of holiday staycation to work on some of my projects from the Teresa Collins Vegas event that I didn’t get to complete on site.  Speaking of holidays, since it’s so close to Christmas, I allowed myself one last Christmas themed layout to share for this holiday season.

Christmas photos for me are so rare lately that I had to dig deep and pull out some pictures from a few years ago.  Ok, ok, so it is close to 8 years ago, but who’s counting?!  Santa even gifted me an awesome point and shoot, and I tried to do a photo a day for December. I think I managed to make it to the 5th….

So here is what I created for this week’s reveal:

Untitled

All the paper is from Simple Stories and the Cardstock is Bazzill.  The ribbon is from my stash, and the die cut borders and title were from my Silhouette.  I also glammed up the title with some Wink of Stella clear marker over top – and a little brown Wink of Stella on the tree trunk too.  The bling atop the tree and the 25 wooden element are Tim Holtz.  You may notice some shadows on my layout. I took it outside in the warm December sun (!!!!!!) – seriously!

And here is the sketch we had to work with:

So now it’s your turn! Hop on over to the ScrapMuch? blog and see what the rest of the team has created for your inspiration. Create your own sketch inspired layout, and share it with us for a chance to win an awesome ScrapMuch? prize!

See you in 2 weeks with my next reveal!

We Are – ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Reveal

Ok. You’re seriously not going to believe this – but this is my last reveal for this year for ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday.  I’ll be back in the new year, but this is the last one scheduled for  Team A.

For this week’s layout I used more of the Simple Stories We Are…Family collection. This is actually a collection I totally loved in the store, then got it home and had no idea what on earth to do with it. I’ve actually *forced* myself to use it for 2 reveal layouts and I love the finished product for both of them. I’ve also made a concerted effort to use all the stickers and goodies in the collection packs instead of “saving them for the perfect layout”.

So here is what I came up with this week:
Untitled
All products Simple Stories except cardstock from stash, and twine from American Crafts.

Here is our inspiration sketch that we had to work with:
12122467_10153046095026039_404311103498595452_n

So now it’s your turn. I hope you get some crafty time before the end of the month so you can link up your creations for a chance to win an awesome ScrapMuch? prize. Hop on over to the ScrapMuch? blog for some more Team A inspiration.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Year’s!

Love – ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday

Hello everyone and once again happy Friday! Don’t look now but it’s the last Friday in November and December is right around the corner! It’s also time for another ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday team A reveal. We’re ushering in the new month with a 2 page layout for your inspiration.

This month my page features a wonderful memory from my most recent trip to Las Vegas and the night I saw Cirque du Soleil Love. I usually make a point to see one Cirque show per trip, and this time I opted to see Love. I was blown away and sat in awe the entire time. It was purely magical. So without further adieu, here is my layout for this week:
IMG_5198

Because it was Love, I got to dig out all my fun heart tools like my border punch and squeeze hand punch. I also added a punch of metallic red using my Heidi Swapp Minc machine. That card was just perfect for adding some journaling about the night. I used some paper from Bo Bunny that is wonderfully distressed and vintage, with some beautiful cursive writing and music paper, also totally perfect for the page and the event.

Here is the sketch we had for inspiration:

12079962_10153046092416039_6096303356238259070_o

I know December is a busy month, but you now have an extra weekend to scrap your own version of the sketch and share it with us before the end of December for your chance to win an awesome ScrapMuch? prize! Make sure you take some time during the holidays for some scrap-therapy. It’s so worth it! Looking forward to seeing your creations!
