The Plane w/ Kaisercraft

I hope you've had a great week so far.
Today I have a bit of travel fun for you, using the Now Boarding line from Kaisercraft:

I used the right side of this sketch from Nuts About Sketches:

 I love sketches! They are just a great way to really jump start your creativity. You can stick really close to it or change up anything to fit your needs.

Since the sketch allowed for journaling and title on the left side I had to find a place for them in my layout. I only had 2 vertically oriented photos so it worked great for me to add my journaling there. I was going to place my title there also but decided to go with a spot along the top instead.

It fit great along the tops of my photos next to the cute little stickers I added for embellishment.

The sketch called for a decorative strip and some banners in the middle, which was the part I really loved. I thought these fun banner stickers would be perfect to hang off my strip, which is the backside of the barcode strip of Terminal, my base paper.
 Do you have some vacation pictures to scrap? You can find this line at the Speedy Scrappers store then come show us your creations on the facebook page.

Happy Scrapping!

Take my hand w/ Fancy Pants

If you haven't entered into the Moxxie blog hop giveaway you still can! Find it here.

I had so much fun creating this layout! 

I made it for the Member of the Month challenge at Memorable Seasons. Every month they pick one member to highlight and then everyone is challenge to scrap lift them. Krystle was July's MOTM and she has a lot of layouts in her gallery with banner strips, florals and bling. So that's what I concentrated on.

This photo of my son walking hand in hand with my husband on a hike we took inspired my title. I used the triangles leftover from cutting the banners to bring attention to my title also. 

There's always 3 strips of ribbon in the kits I receive, but I'm normally not too good at using ribbon. So I was excited to get all three pieces on this layout. A bow by, my title, a bit of burlap in the banner strips and then I made my own ribbon flower for the lower corner of the photo and then added some fun bling.

I finished up by drawing around the layout with a dark green marker and then added one line of white pen. I really love how this layout turned out.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. 
Have a great week! :)Ange

Two cards w/ Kaisercrafts

If you're looking for the Moxxie hop (and you definitely want to, great giveaway!) you can find it HERE.

It's back to school Monday here. I can't believe how fast the summer went! I am glad to get back into a bit of a routine again tho.
Today I have a couple cards for you:

I used Kaisercrafts Telegraph Road from Speedy Scrappers for both of these, they are 4.25x5.5. For this first one I inked the base with a bright pink, then used a loopy border/corner punch on a scrap of Letter pattern paper, layered a couple die-cuts, stickers and this easy sticker sentiment.

I wanted a different look for this one so I used weathered wood ink, it has a bit of a blue cast to it that I liked. Then I put the border sticker across the top, just trim it down to the size you need. After that I found a scrap of the pink Message paper and punched the corners. I didn't like it straight on the card, so I cut a piece of Memo to back it with and rounded the corners. Then I layered the stickers, die-cuts and sentiments but finished up with some bling across the top.

Have a great week everyone!

I hope you're enjoying all the awesomeness you've seen along the way. If you've arrived here from Rebecca's blog you are in the right place. If not and you'd like to start the hop from the beginning just head to the Moxxie blog.

Today I get to share with you this wonderful Volleyball line:

The colors in this line are just amazing! They go awesome with any school colors or just a day of fun on the court. The quotes and sayings are my favorite part tho. I love getting a little sassy in name of fun!

 This is a photo of my daughter's team from last season. I'm really looking forward to this next season. Love watching my girl play!

I started with Volleyball Rules as my base, then fussy cut some of the yellow chevrons out of Volleyball Cutouts to add to the bottom of my photo. I used the triangle bits I had left over as arrows to point you to my title. I used the NEW and TOTALLY AWESOME White Alphas and outlined them with a thin black pen.

 The strip of volleyballs and words are the barcode strips from the 2 pattern papers that I used. Then I got to grab the fantastic stickers to spruce up my page. End with a bit of ink, pen stitching and bling and walla awesome Volleyball page!

Happy w/ Fancy Pants

Here's another layout I made using the Burlap and Bouquets line from Fancy Pants:

This was for an inking challenge at Memorable Seasons. The challenge was to Ink it All! I inked the edges of almost everything. I just like the bold look the ink gives your elements.

I even outlined a few things in pen to make them pop even more.

I also used this sketch from Nuts About Sketches for the main design:

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
