Crop Projects

There were so many great challenges at last weekend's online crop at Scrap Shotz! I still have a bunch I would like to do, hope I can make some time to get to them. Here are some of my challenge projects:

This one was for the Scrap Shotz Gives back challenge.


There are many more challenges I didn't get to and a whole TONNE of inspiration from the CT and crop participants.

Thanks for looking at my projects :) .

It Was a Fabulous Crop!

We had a great time over at Scrap Shotz for our 60's themed online crop. This layout was for my "77 Sunset Strip" Challenge:

I used the fantastic Authentique "Celebrate" line for this one.

This next project was for my "Far Out Pattern" challenge and uses the Pink Paislee "Indigo Bleu" line. It's an 8x10 canvas.

You can read the details on my challenges and see what the rest of the Creative Team came up with here.
Visit the Scrap Shotz gallery as well to see all the wonderful creations from this weekend!

Yummy Home Cooking

As I am not an expert photo taker, I like to practice my skills whenever an opportunity arises (and capture some memories in the process). This led to some food photos that I called to me for a Scrap Shotz Design Team Challenge. Click on the link to check out the challenge and here is my layout:

All Fancy Pants goodness from the April Scrap Shotz kit along with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I also inked the edges of the photos with Prima ink. Quick, easy and done :)))

Focus

I have so much fun scrappy goodness hanging around my house and I am always happy to get to pair that up with some photos I've had kicking around for awhile. That brings me to my latest layout:

I've used my favorite neutral "kraft" for the base, Basic Grey & Amy Tan pp along with AC Thickers for Studio Calico.

Scrap Shotz April Kit *CT Reveal*

Hello! It is Creative Team reveal time over at Scrap Shotz! We had the pleasure of working with the April kit featuring Fancy Pants "Be You". This is a great line and so very versatile! Some of the team used it for hockey layouts!!
Here are my projects using the April kit:

Just Breathe
I purchased the Mr.Huey mist add on and used it on the light blue cardstock here.

Love U
A simple layout, I showed off the patterned paper and popped up some chipboard pieces along with the butterfly punched from another piece of patterned paper. I also applied glossy glaze to the butterfly.

Happy Mother's Day
This paper has some great pre-printed elements that lend themselves to special attention making them the design focus. I highlighted the heart by mixing some glitter with glossy accents and then applying with a paintbrush to the heart. The washi tape in the kit made a great border along the bottom of the card.

One of a Kind

I really like misting and I used a Tattered Angels glimmer screen along with the Mr.Huey's mist for this card background.

Thank You
The trim add on is a great one and I used all 3 for this card.

Be You
This was a last minute idea to make this canvas and while I wish had more time to put more in to it, I really like how it turned out anyways. I plan to hang this in my son's room to encourage him to be his own person rather than follow the crowd as he navigates teenagehood.


My Rock
This layout is based on this Becky Fleck Pagemaps sketch and it's also my Scrap Shotz Creative Team April Challenge. I have misted the cardstock base with Mr. Huey's mist and the alphas are the fun, new American Craft DIY Thickers dressed up with AC Fine Glitter which is included in April's kit as well. As I have issues with glitter I applied a small amount of glossy glaze to keep the glitter from landing all over the place ;) .
