One More Month!

I am fortunate to have the opportunity to create Creative Team projects for Scrap Shotz for another month as my CT term was extended by one month! I am looking forward to working with the Simple Stories new Harvest Lane line which will be featured in the Scrap Shotz October kit.
Here are a couple of my latest projects.

"Look Alikes"
All supplies are from the sold out September Scrap Shotz kit with the addition of a couple of add ons and Mr.Huey's mist.
"Future Slugger"
This layout features the Fancy Pants "Little Sports" line. I punched the stars with a Marvy punch and painted them with Triple Thick Gloss Glaze. The stitching was done with the help of the Sew Easy :).

Add ons go up for the October Scrap Shotz Monthly kit tomorrow evening, 6pm MT here.

Thanks for looking!

A Layout Tag...

We play layout tag every month at Scrap Shotz and it is lots of fun!
I was tagged by my fellow Creative Team member Jamie and this is what her lovely layout inspired:

"1rst Research Project"
patterned paper-Studio Calico "Elementary; hexagon stickers-Jenni Bowlin; alphas-Prima & MME; blossoms-Prima;brads-AC; bling-Imaginisce

My daughter was so proud of her first research project on the platypus in 2010. I love how this turned out and it came together very quickly. I finished this in a few hours instead of a few days :).
You can see all of the participants layouts here and it is not too late to join our September layout tag here.

12x12 Scrapbook Projects

A few random 12x12 projects, hope you enjoy them!

This was made from a Studio Calico kit but I can not remember which  one for the life of me.
Lots of American Crafts "Chap" on this one along with Jenni Bowlin Stickers and Crate Paper stickers. I also used the Sew Easy and an EK Success border punch.
Another school layout using a Studio Calico kit-don't recall the name of it but the blue chevron paper is Kesai Art if that helps.
Lastly I have this fun layout using Heidi Swapp Colour Magic and No Limits products(all obtained from Scrap Shotz) along with a bit of Glimmer Mist. I cut an HS memory file in half to serve as a photo mat on the HS colour magic base cardstock. Love how this turned out!

Feel free to let me know what you think!

ScrapShotz September 2012 CT Reveal

I had the pleasure of working with the fabulous My Mind's Eye line "the sweetest thing" which is the Scrap Shotz September 2012 monthly kit (photo not available yet but addons are here).
The papers are fun and super versatile but my favorite item is the stamps!
Here are my projects using this fabulous kit!

The rosettes are made with the Tim Holtz min rosettes die out of the Studio Calico Fabrip included in the kit. I left the backing on this when I cut and folded it which makes keeps the fabric firm like cardstock so it was easy to fold and put together. The journaling block is accented with two strips of fabric folded over like ribbon.

This layout describes my daughter's desire for a pet. The strips along the right side are cut from one piece of paper "Playful" Lively which is chock full of border strips. Love those woodgrain Amy Tangerine{Muse}Thickers.
This layout is inspired our CT sketch created by the fabulous Jess Duerkson. I had lots of fun with the hand stitching but I'm annoyed with myself for not stamping the arrows towards the center of the layout. I used the kit stamp and stamped with grey Staz On ink which I covered with embossing powder and heat embossed. I freehanded the stitching around the circles.
I used the stamp included with the kit to stamp this image. It is inked with Tim Holtz distress markers on watercolor paper. The image is then misted with water. Love how it turned out!
Many great chipboard pieces included in this kit. I made one of them the sentiment on this card and punched the border with a Martha Stewart border punch.
Many great patterns make for a wonderful pieced card background. I cut these squares 1 & 1/2" x 1x1/2" and anchored them in the center with an epoxy dot. Simple, yet lovely!
I had a great time mixing these patterns on this layout and they go so well together being from the same manufacturer! I really like those word stickers, I used two different sets for this journaling/title along with the kit stamp!
This is a simple layout with just a few pieces of patterned paper. The star is the photos of course and that great layered sticker that serves as the title as well "Best Day".
Lastly is this card that is also my Scrap Shotz Design Team Monthly Challenge "keep it simple stupid". I've used three items only; epoxy dot, die cut & cardstock. You can see all our September Design Team challenges here.
