Toddler Motto w/ kaisercraft

Have you been playing hard this summer?
My family has been extremely busy. It's been fun, but man is it flying by.

Today I have a fun layout using this adorable line from Kaisercraft called Party Animals. I just fell in love with these papers when I saw them! The cutest prints in great colors!! Here's my layout:

I used the Hooray paper as my background. I love papers like this because they really just take all the work out of a layout. All you have to do is add photos and spruce things up a bit if you want and you have a fun layout. 

 My inspiration for this layout was this fun quote from the Bop! paper. My youngest son is always breaking the rules and pushing the limits, so it didn't take me long to find some fun photos of him to pair up with this cute quote.

 Then I used my notebook edge punch on the quote card and my photos. I did some inking, fussy cut the monkey's tail to be above my photo and added some glitter alphas for my title. Then finished up with some fun cork stars.

Run into the Speedy Scrappers store and pick this line up, you will LOVE it!
Happy Scrapping! :)Ange

4 layouts w/ Simple Stories

 Don't miss my giveaway on this post!

Today I've got a few layouts I made for Memorable Seasons using Simple Stories Sea to Shining Sea line:

First up I did a sketch challenge from a 2 page Nuts About Sketches sketch #320. Here's the sketch:

I used the left side but switched it up a bit for my needs:

I had a lot of fun using washi tape as a banner on the ribbon they sent with the kit. I even found that metal star on my desk and added it to the banner. The Stars & Stripes card is cut from the Elements paper then I added the word stickers along with stars and circles I cut from other papers in the kit.

Next up is the Member of the Month lift challenge:
June's Member was Susan Anhern. She has many wonderful layouts to choose from in the gallery. What I noticed is that she does some beautiful journaling. So I did my best to get some heartfelt journaling on this layout:

I also used the cut out portion of the USA card to mist my background, then hung the USA letters from my banner paper at the top.

My 2nd challenge was a Theme challenge. I chose to scrap something Sweet:

This is my youngest using his toes to help him eat some taffy. He's such a fun little guy and I loved the title that popped into mind, Taffy Toes. I used the charcoal cs as my background then added some pattern paper and bunched a barcode strip with my star border punch to added along the pp. Then I had some cute stars to sprinkle on my layout. Lots of inking and some stickles dots finishes it up.

My last challenge was to Distress, any way you choose:
I used the Ahoy pp for my background and dripped splashes of blue dylusions on it. Then used the Original card from the Elements paper above and below my photos. I fussy cut around "Original" to layer it over the bottom of my photos. I did a lot of scissor distressing, ink and even used an emery-board to distress the edges of my photos.

I had a lot of fun with this kit!
Thanks for stopping by!!

Fierce w/ Moxxie & a giveaway!

 Hello there!
Today I'm taking you to the ball park!!
Have you seen this fantastic line from Moxxie?

You can almost smell the peanuts and hotdogs right? I LOVE this line!!!
Today I've used it to document my son's love of playing Catcher. 

Linking to large photo challenge at Scraptastic club.

I used the B side of Batter Up for my background. You can actually see the chain link backstop in my photo so I thought this paper would be perfect. Then I layered the B side of Ball Gear on sideways so I could use the lines for my journaling.

Add some distressing, the awesome cardstock stickers and fun and EASY to use rub-ons and you're all done.

Will you be at the Ball park this summer? Then you'll definitely want this line to document your memories.

Mad Hatter

Today I'm going back a bit to Halloween. This particular year my daughter decided to go as the Mad Hatter. I was super impressed. I love it when my kids come up with their own costumes instead of doing store bought. They look SO much better.

For this layout I used Kaisercraft's The Looking Glass line that you can find in the store. Of course this line was the perfect fit for these photos and I went with this Tweedle Dum paper as my base. I cut the barcode off, flipped it and glued it back to the bottom of the layout for the cool border along the bottom. Then I layered bits of Mad Hatter and Alice before adding my photos.

I cut along the left side of the Time balloon to slip the edge of the paper and photo under. Then added my title, stickers and journaling along with a little bit of purple inking.

Swing by the Speedy Scrappers store and grab this line, then jump onto the facebook page and show us what you've made!
I hope you have a scrappy!
