No Hands w/ Moxxie

Don't miss out on my giveaway HERE

 Hello!
I have a fun layout for you today.


Love these little cuties of mine! I based this sketch on the right side of the awesome 2page sketch from Nuts About Sketches:


I used Moxxie's new Racing line for these photos of my kids at the local carnival.


Here I did a bit of fussing cutting on the g of Racing to slide my photo under.


I did some inking in black and outlined some of the stickers, including the white alpha from Moxxie, in black.

Thanks for stopping by!

Start w/ Moxxie

 I wanted to jump in here real quick and show you this fun layout I made using Autumn Glory from Moxxie. (You can enter to win this line here)


I stared with this sketch from Nuts About Sketches


I loved all the arrow action on here and took advantage of that to do a series of photos from one event. I started with my title up in the right corner and brought the eye across the top with words, banners as arrows, and word stickers. I also outlined them with a black pen to make them pop off the page more.


Then I used the chevrons to bring the eye down past the journaling and then across the bottom of the page again to finish up the series of photos.


I used the barcode strip from these papers on either side of the layout, then did a lot of fussy cutting of the flowers and flourishes. Last I aded a bit of bling to them to sparkle them up a bit.

Now for my project. Here's my supplies:


This is one of those composition notebooks I pick up when I'm grabbing the kids school supplies.


They are all different sizes, so if you're doing more than one, measure each one separately. Put a thin layer of Mod Podge all over the front cover, then add your paper along with the strip down the binding. Give it some time to dry. If you get a thin enough coating it doesn't take too long but you might want to wait overnight if you get it thicker.


Then just have fun decorating! I used ink and a black pen to make everything pop more. The stickers are super easy to use, but the little owl was in a big circle that I didn't want on my book, so I just cut him out and inked his edges too.



I had fun inking the edges of the chalkboard paper with white ink. Love how that turned out!


Now you can WIN the entire Brainiac line from me!


All you have to do is be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment and you're in.
Good luck and thanks for hopping with us today!

Where to? for Speedy Scrappers

Hello!
Today I have a "traditional" layout created with a travel line. 
My family doesn't do a lot of traveling (yet) and even less out of the country travel. So this Now Boarding line from Kaisercraft was giving me a bit of trouble. However I did create a travel layout from a trip to WDW we took a few years back and then I came up with this idea:


A layout of my daughter letting her know where all of her hard work can take her. This photo has absolutely nothing to do with traveling. It was a camping photo from last summer, but it shows her working hard for something she wants (my sweet little pyro lol) so it was the perfect photo for me to use to let her know that "the world is hers" with hard work.


I liked this Luggage Carousel paper from the line and fussy cut the side of the stacked suitcases so I could slip my photo underneath. This World is Yours embellishment was a 3x4 cut cards from Sail. I just cut around the circle portions at the top and bottom and then popped it up with some foam tape.


Lots of distressing, inking and layering along with a bit of outlining to make elements pop and this layout was all done.
Don't be afraid to step out of the suitcase and create something totally different!

You can get this line in the Speedy Scrappers store.
Then join us on the facebook page and show us what you're up to.
Thanks for stopping by!

Family Fun w/ NAS

It's Nuts About Sketches Monday!
I'm super excited to show this fantastic sketch today:


And the layout I made using it:


I flipped the sketch to have the main photo (or in my case photos) on the left instead of the right. I mainly do this so the action of the larger photos on the page is going into my layout instead of out of it.

 

Other than that you can tell I stuck pretty close to the sketch.


Here I made my own cluster of hearts. I just layered the singles together to look like the other clusters in the line.


Using these paint chip papers for the journaling I thought would be really fun. So I cut them apart and used the ones that fit the theme of my layout best.

You can see more examples of this sketch on the NAS blog.
