2 more w/ Fancy Pants

Remember this kit?

Here are 2 more layouts I made with it:

With those bold patterns it was easier to use them in little bits. So I used the back of one of the papers and then trimmed the strips out of another.

Add a little bit of ribbon and a double mat for the photo

A little more embellishment and journaling and you're done.
Here's the other layout I made:

I used mists and a stencil for the background.

Here I cut those arrows out of the same bold pattern paper I used on the last page, but then I repaired the pieces with like colors to form these arrows.

I distressed the edges of my photos to help them stand out against the mat more

A few stickers to embellish and then I used these word stickers in place of journaling.

Hope you have a scrappy day!

Preschool lo w/ Moxxie & NAS

 Good Monday to ya!
Are you excited for a week full of fun and spooky things?
I know I am. I love Halloween and all things spooky, scary and a little bit morbid. I will take full advantage of this week to watch every scary movie I can get away with. 
Oh and my little man and I will watch all the Curious George Halloween specials we can stand! lol

But today, I have fun and cute for you:

I used this week's NAS sketch for this. See many fun examples here.

A bit of fussy cutting goes a long way. I love to layer this cute things over elements on my page, especially photos.

I love these cute banners from the Moxxie Brainiac line!

Pop up your title for a bit of fun.

Happy scrapping!

2 layouts w/ Fancy Pants

I got this bright kit from Memorable Seasons:

And the backs:

Luckily I had some leftover Fancy Pants Trendsetter I could use in combination with this and here are 2 of the layouts I came up with:

My littlest guy is so much fun! He's always got me cracking up and he loves getting his picture taken.

I did a lot of ink distressing and outlining of sticker elements to help them pop off the page.

I enjoy clustering elements to lead the eye.

These mistable shapes were a lot of fun. I just started laying them out until I like the look of them but I inked the edges with brown first. It kind of gave them a roasted marshmallow feel.

When I first saw this large envelope in my kit, I was really wishing I had a patterned paper like that. So I cute the envelope up and used it as a background strip, making the closure a fun element.

Next up I have this layout:

All of the bold pattern papers in the kit were a bit of challenge. So I did a lot of cutting and here I misted them to help them blend together on my layout.

Here I used those mistable shapes to make a fun flower embellishment.

Another of those pretty envelopes.

This time with a couple tags tucked in with journaling.

Thanks for stopping by today!

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

I love sprinkling the punched stars on the layout.

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.

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 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.
Don't forget to share with us on facebook!

Let's Travel for Speedy Scrappers

 I am totally ready for the weekend! A little bit of fun and relaxation sounds perfect right about now.

Today I'm working with Kaisercrafts Now Boarding line from Speedy Scrappers.

They have this fun 12x12 Round die-cut, Compass, that I decided to try out. I used it as my base, then added a piece of Cabin Crew along with a barcode strip and journaling card cutouts from Sail Lounge. With all of that down I added a bit of misting.

I used a border punch on the edge of the Snap Shot journaling card.

Then I layered lots of stickers after inking their edges.

And of course my title/journaling. This photo is just a fun one from a camping trip, but I think it worked great to tell a little story about the guy I want to travel the world with.

 Come share what you make with us on the facebook page!

Need for Speed! w/ Moxxie

Have you seen this super fun Racing line from Moxxie?

Don't you just LOVE the colors?
I had these really cute pictures of my son at the local carnival riding a motorcycle on a ride and thought this line was perfect for them.

I used Speed for the base and then took another sheet of it and fussy cut the flags out for the banner along the top. Then I used the B side of Racing Cutouts to back my photo.

These flames were perfect for a bit of fussy cutting and then I slid my photo under.

I also cut a couple of the strips from Racing Cutouts and layered them for a base for my title using the new Red Alphas. I love the chevron stickers! Awesome for directing the eye where you want.

Thanks for stopping by today.
