Make Time lo w/ Kreaxions

I have a wonderfully goofy layout for you today.
My family is not big on getting their photo taken, but I've found they will pose, and pose well, if I promise a goofy photo after the good one. As you might imagine, I have MANY more goofy photos, than "good" ones. But I have to say, I really love them.

I actually cut 2 different photos to put this one together and then I just had to add the one of my little guy with his back to the camera.

I used Punch 901 from Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions to go up the side of this fun orange pattern paper.

Then I used the extra "edge" piece over on the right side of the layout.
I used a lot of different inks on the background page to really liven up the kraft.

I used Punch 309 along the side of the yellow paper but I didn't want the flower to show so I layered the darker blue patter over the top of the flower but you still get them fun edge design.

All About that Sass! w/ LMT

Today I'm havin' some fun with Love My Tapes!
My younger daughter is not really all that sassy but she really can turn it on for a dance competition.

I picked some fun black and red tapes from Love My Tapes to go with her outfit and then added stars because I think she's a star. I also added a lot of red ink to my base page.

I layered the tapes onto my layout alternating colors and patterns. It makes a great base for my title using Moxxie's white alpha. I outlined it with a black pen to help it pop more.

Then I added some pattern papers and used the star tape for a photo mat and added some of the black chevron for embellishment.

Last I added tapes at the top along with some pattern paper banners and fun embellies.
Super simple and fun!

Dirty fun! w/ MS&M

 Woohoo for sketchy Friday!
Today we are working with this fun sketch:

Here is my take on it.

My little guy having some fun in the sand box AFTER running through the sprinkler. Is there any other way?

Other than flipping the sketch I stuck really close to the design. I had fun using some of the new goodies I just got from SEI at the Sandy, UT Let's Create Expo. I love to take bold patterns and cut them along their design. It makes it fun and easy to use, without overwhelming your project.

My son isn't the only one getting messy! I used a lot of Vintage Photo distress ink and then dripped melted chocolate Dylusions on my layout. While the drips were still wet I smeared them with a paper towel.

I used Moxxie's Brown alpha for my title and then added the lines with my brown marker. The best thing about a messy page is, you can't mess it up!

You can see what the whole design team did with this sketch on the My Scraps & More Sketches blog.
I wish you a messy, fun weekend!

Crazy 4 U! card w/ Love My Tapes

Ok so I am pretty much addicted to washi tape!
After making the Love My Tapes dt, I decided I want needed a few more to work with, so
I went and ordered myself a "few" more.

Yep, these stacks make me happy :)
And I got right to work on this fun card.


My husband and I just had our 17th anniversary, so I made this for him.
I started with a white cs base and then added this funky chevron tape. In the store it's called red, yellow, green masking tape. I layered the strips on a diagonal.

Next I added two strips of the Heart tape and my sentiment with Moxxie's black alpha.

My card needed just a little bit more so I cut a heart out of a scrap of paper and added the cute Lime with White polka dots tape. Then popped it up with some foam adhesive and added a few heart embellies.

Thanks for coming by today,

Now for my project.
I am seeing blooms on the trees outside my window and I am SO ready for spring. One of the things that we regularly do in the springtime here is dance performances.
My younger daughter is a dancer and we are always finishing up her season in the spring, so I thought doing some photos of her using our awesome Tiny Dancer line would be perfect.

Here is my layout:

It is so much fun to watch this girl dance! The quote on the cutouts page "Some people wait their whole lives to meet their favorite dancer... I'm raising mine." was perfect for the journaling on my layout.

I used the fun stickers from Tiny Dancer and white alphas to create my title.

Using the barcode strips for a top border was really simple. The quote came as a 3x4 card, I just cut it into strips to add where I wanted it. Some of them I popped up and others I glued directly to the page.

I backed the last bit to help it really stand out.
