Beach / Travel Scrapbooking Layout




Hi Everyone! I'm here today sharing a layout I made for the Scrapbook and Cards Today bonus sketch they posted. I did rotate the sketch, but otherwise kept pretty literal to it.




It seems the theme of the month is Beach (wonder why ha-ha) so I choose some beachy photos I had from a vacation back in 2010, and then choose some DCWV cardstock (Mediterranean Stack Unfortunately Discontinued) that I felt match the photos.

I started out by matting all my photos onto some matching cardstock and cutting out all of the main page elements to get a rough idea of how I was going to set everything up.


I don't have much in the way of beach embellishments that matched the cardstock so I decided to make my own using some Elizabeth Craft dies and glitter. I love their silk microfine glitter.
For my title, I used an oldie but goodie Tim Holtz / Sizzix alpha die and some clean nuvo drops


I hope you enjoyed this layout and thanks for stopping by!

Scene Card Basics Class Homework Part One | Lawn Fawn Mermaids!


Another class I started over at Big Picture Classes is "Scene Card Basics" 
Scene Cards are something I've had trouble with forever, even though lawn fawn is one of my favorite companies and lawn fawn and scene cards go together like ketchup & mustard.
So this is my lesson one homework. 

I used the color inspiration from the current lawn fawnatics challenge  and the beach scene theme from the class to come up with this scene. I started with the lawn fawn stitched hillside dies and cut out a bunch to try different arrangements before arriving at what I have here. I used distress inks to ink blend them into a beach and waves, with a lighter distress ink for the background. 

All of my images were colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. When I want something nice and vibrant thats my go to. And then I just cut them out and embellished everything a little.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll join me on my crafty journey. You can find all of my social media links below and in the sidebar :)

Paige Evans Scrapbooking Masterclass Homework | Part One


I recently signed up for a subscription over at Big Picture Classes mostly because there was an awesome looking class by the super talented Paige Evans, but once inside I realized the wealth of knowledge and now have tons of classes in my to do pipeline.

But first things first, here is the first lessons homework for Paige's Process Masterclass 
The assignment was to create a layout using the bend up petals cut file. The file is provided free in the class, you can also purchase it in the Silhouette store for .99. This is a very new to me out of my comfort zone type of scrapbooking. I've always been very clean and simple with my layouts, which is one of the main reasons I decided to take one of Paige's classes, to expand.


I added lots of watercolor to my layout using distress inks, smushed and watered down on my craft mat for both the paint splatters and on the butterfly die cuts. I tried to match my colors to the base page peaking through the die cut.



If you'd like to learn too you can purchase this class individually for $30, or sign up for a membership for $9.95/month like I did, just head over to www.bigpictureclasses.com for all the details.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll join me on my crafty journey. You can find all of my social media links below and in the sidebar :)
