Paper Issues: Pitch Perfect

Hi Everyone!  I'm back today with a project for the latest issue at Paper Issues...Pitch Perfect.  The PI girls all have a love for this fun movie, so we decided to make an issue of it!  Some ideas for projects are music...acapella groups, or an instrument you play.  Other ideas are baseball pitching, your favorite movie, song lyrics, sales pitch, performing arts or toddler tantrums (pitching a fit).  The great folks at Lawn Fawn are sponsoring this issue and sent us the fun Stay Tuned stamp set to use!  Here's what I created:

 
I though this juke box card from the Rockin' and Rollin' SVG kit at SVGCuts.com was the perfect project for Pitch Perfect!  I used some papers and sequins from the Let's Polka collection by Lawn Fawn to create the card.

 
The music notes are from the Stay Tuned Stamp set.

 
In addition to the sequins, I added some stickles to up the sparkle factor! 


The SVG file also comes with an insert for the card to make it easier to add a sentiment.  I stamped some more music notes and added the You Rock! sentiment to the inside of the card.
 
We would love for you to play along with us!  Link up your Pitch Perfect project here and you could win the Stay Tuned Stamp set from Lawn Fawn!

Creative Scrappers: Sketch 266 Reveal

Hi Everyone!  It's reveal day at Creative Scrappers for sketch 266.  Take a peek at this fun sketch!

 
I decided to turn the sketch to the left for my layout.  Here's my take:
 
 
This picture was taken last fall.  It's my parents, husband, daughter and I at a family party.  My mom used it for her Christmas card.  I thought that Bella Blvd's Family Forever was the perfect match to my picture!
 
 
The fun flair is from the Chic Tags April Kit.  The flowers were fussy cut from the Bella Blvd. Sunday Brunch Paper.

 
To complete my layout I created this fun butterfly using some new Ladybug Sprinkles Vellum from Doodlebug Design.  In place of the circles on the layout, I stitched some swirls using some Solid Midnight Blue Twine from The Twinery.
 
We'd love to see your take on this sketch!  Link up your creation and you could win a fun prize from our April Sponsor Scraptastic Club
 
 
Make sure to stop by the Creative Scrapper's Blog for more inspiration from the design team!  That's it for me today.  I'll be back tomorrow with a fun project for Paper Issues.  Thanks for stopping by!

Doodlebug Designs: Some More Hip Hip Hooray

Hi Everyone, I'm back today with my second layout using the Doodlebug Designs Hip Hip Hooray collection.  This one features my two "not so little" monsters...Daisy and Rosie. 
 
As soon as I saw them, I fell in love with those little monsters from the Monsters- Icon Mini stickers. They are just too cute!  (Kind of like my kitties!)  I decided to showcase them as little "stamps." 




Again...one of my favorite techniques, mixing and matching alphas for titles! 
That's it for me today, make sure to stop by the Doodlebug Blog to see the Design Team's creations and for a chance to win this collection!  Thanks for stopping by!

Doodlebug Design: Hip Hip Hooray Project

Hi Everyone... I'm up on the Doodlebug Blog today with a couple of layouts I created using the Hip Hip Hooray Collection.  I absolutely love this collection. The colors and patterns are so bold and bright!  Since I don't have any little guys to scrap, I decided to show a different side of this fun collection.
 
My first layout showcases my husband and his "toy."  He always wanted a vintage Mustang, so last year he bought this beauty!  We call her Sally (or "the mistress...") . He's always saying "why don't you scrap pictures of my car?"  Well...here you go honey...
 
 
Not quite sure if this is what he had in mind, but I thought it was perfect!
 

 
The Life is Good was cut from one of the Simply Put cards


 
I created my title using a mix of different Doodlebug Alphas from the Teensy Type sheets.  I love to mix and match alphas!  That's it for me today.  I'll be back tomorrow with the second layout I created using Hip Hip Hooray.  Make sure to stop by the Doodlebug Blog to see all of the fun projects created by the Design Team and check out your chance to win this collection!  Thanks for stopping by.

Paper Issues: Pocket Full of Sunshine

We have a new Issue up over at Paper Issues called "A Pocket Full of Sunshine." You can link up your pocket/Project Life pages, projects with suns, sunbursts, sunny days, pockets...  Here's what I created...
 
 
This is my "extra large" kitty Daisy.  We grow them big around here... I am completely in love with the new Lawn Fawn Collections Hello Sunshine and Let's Polka.  The colors and prints make me so happy!  And the sequins.....!  I combined them with the March kit from Chic Tags and some custom flair from our sponsor Panda Eight Designs.
 
 
 I found this sun in the Silhouette store and it reminded me of the adorable sun in the April Showers Die set from Lawn Fawn...had to use it!

 
 

The journaling card and other tags are from the Chic Tags kit.   The Good Day Sunshine flair is from our sponsor Panda Eight.   We'd love for you to play along with our Pocket Full of Sunshine Issue!  Link up your projects here and you could win 5 sets of flair from the Panda Eight shop!  In addition, Martha of Panda Eight has provided a coupon for 20% off  (SUNSHINE20) in her store. Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget to link up!

Creative Scrappers: Sketch 265 Reveal

Hi Everyone!  It's reveal day over at Creative Scrappers.  Today we have Sketch 265...a fun Project Life-like sketch! 
 
Since I am not a Project-Lifer I decided to translate the sketch to a layout.  Here's what I created:
 
 
As soon as I saw the sketch, I thought of the new Molly collection from Bella Blvd.  The Paper Pieces Die Cuts and Candid Cards were a perfect fit for this sketch!
 
 
This great saying is from the Molly Borders Paper.
 
 

 
This layout really came together quickly, especially with all of the ready to use pieces.  We'd love to see what you create with this sketch!  Link up your project and you could win a full kit from our April Sponsor Scraptastic Club!


That's it for me today...be sure to stop by the Creative Scrappers Blog to check out more layouts from the CS team!  Thanks for stopping by!

Doodlebug Design: Cute as a Bunny Layout

Hi Everyone...I'm up on the Doodlebug Blog today with a layout featuring the Springtime Collection.  LOVE this collection!  So bright and cheery!  These pictures are from around 2002 when my daughter was almost four.  Seems like forever ago! (she's almost 16!)
 
 
I think my FAVORITE new embellishments from Doodlebug are the garlands.  They are perfect for all types of projects.  I will admit though, I had a hard time cutting mine!  Luckily there is plenty on the card to make a couple of layouts!

 
Here are some more close ups... 


Aren't the bunny stickers ADORABLE??!!!  They inspired my whole layout!


 That's it for me today...make sure to stop by the Doodlebug Blog to see Candace's layout as well! Thanks for stopping by!
