Love w/ Fancy Pants

I quick layout with Fancy Pants today:

A few fun layers, arrows to guide the eye to a bright glittery title.

I love sprinkling the punched stars on the layout.

Fun and simple design. Just take a fun photo, layer a few papers and then sprinkle on some embellies.
Have fun creating!

Beware w/ Moxxie & Let's Get Sketchy

Did you know that Moxxie is sponsoring Let's Get Sketchy?
And I got to play along!

They gave us this sketch:

I used the awesome Zombie Attack line that Moxxie has donated to one of their lucky winners!

And this is what I made:

I am having SO much fun working with this line!!
First I played with this photo in photoshop, then I distressed the edges and used my scissors to make scratches on it.
As you can see I turned the sketch on its side to fit the orientation of my photo, then I layered papers and used the barcode strips to create the longest strip under the photo. Splash some mist on the layers for the fun, creepy look.

Layer stickers and outline them with a black pen to make them pop off the page.

I did a lot of distressing on all of my papers and then used a bark ink to "dirty" up the white edge that was revealed. Last I used this combination of stickers for my title area.

This line is AWESOME! You can play along with Let's Get Sketchy this month for a chance to win it AND you can join us on the Moxxie blog for another chance.
Thanks for stopping by!

Got Brains? w/ NAS and Moxxie

I have a really fun layout for you today!
I started with this sketch from Nuts About Sketches:

And this line from Moxxie. Check here for a chance to WIN!

And created this:

I seriously have so much fun making "blood" with ink. lol I may or may not have even giggled a little as I created this....

This wasn't even a Halloween photo, but my son has this Zombie shirt that he really loves. It reads: Zombies Eat Brains, don't worry, you're safe. My son would run around telling everyone "you don't have a brain!" Totally cracked me up and I wanted to document the memory. This photo of him at the fire house on a Pre-school field trip seemed perfect. He already had that zoned out look, he was wearing the shirt and I put the photo in photoshop and took out a bit of color to give him a bit of a pale look.

I stayed fairly close to the sketch, but added this zombie cut card instead of a photo.

Some popped up eyeballs, fun stickers and a bit of bling finish off the page.

You can WIN this line HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Thanks for stopping by! Today we are Halloween Hoppin' w/ Moxxie.
You can find the beginning of the hop HERE.

Details on how to win at the bottom of the post.

I used the totally fantastically awesome Zombie Attack line for this layout:

My son was the cutest little skeleton and he is totally addicted to sweets of almost any kind. I swear he can sniff them out from anywhere.
I was looking at the stickers in this line and thought it would be really fun to use the Got Flesh? sticker as a fun twist on a title for my layout. From there I just went with the flow.
I really love using red ink as "blood" so I had fun splattering and splashing all I could.

I like sanding the edges of my photos, it gives them a really cool look especially for a creepy page. So I tried it on the edges of the Hallowed Ground pp and then saturated it with red ink. So much fun!

Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

Quick cards for Speedy Scrappers

 Quick cards are the way to go in my book. I want them to look like they took a lot of time, but be fairly simple. I think one of the best ways to do that is to use pp for your background. The problem with that is making sure the inside works to write a little note to the recipient. 

For this card I wanted to use the PL style notecard, from Telegraph Road by Kaisercraft, on the front and decided it would look great over the Memo paper, so I made that the background. 

Of course that makes for a really busy inside, but the cool part is that it looks like postcards. So I grabbed a couple mini postcards from the die-cut shapes pack, inked them and added them to the inside for writing on.

 For this one I used a plain white background but spruced it up with some mists and ink. Then layer your pattern paper with this cute journaling card and some flower die-cuts, add your sentiment and voila, 2 quick and easy cards!

You can find this beautiful line in the Speedy Scrappers store.
