You, Me, Love ....

Last Friday I went to the SGD Friday night crop! A couple of hours with those ladies and oh my my ... the inspiration! Everyone was working on a February aka Valentine's project and I decided to give it a whirl. I picked up the new Crate Paper line and used January Sketch 1 from Let's Get Sketchy for my page.

I decided to add the deeper color cardstock to help give it a pop. 

I am in love with the chipboard elements

Inked and popped the banner

Love love love the look of the stamped date. 

Thank you so much for stopping by <3 i="">

LOVE Crate Paper

Winter is definitely here! We are all stuck in the house today! Sadly I am missing the SGD Saturday crop but Sheila does have a great deal on today!  I am THRILLED as I got to play with some new papers from Crate Paper the Love Notes collection and Let's Get Sketchy January Week two sketch! 

I normally have a hard time with working with multiple patterned papers but adding a matt at the bottom of all my pieces helped the page pop. 

Always love my Tim Holtz Wild Honey Ink... Everywhere.

The chipboard pieces that are with this collection are adorable

Love this collection!

Say Cheese

I had a fabulous weekend! On Friday night I got to scrap with the Diva's of SGD! It is amazing what a couple of hours with the Diva's will do! I am thrilled that I will be joining the SGD team! Dani introduced me to the 

Simple Stories - Say Cheese 12x12 Collection Kit, and I fell in love! Although the paper pack is mostly geared towards a trip to Disney I put my own spin to it. My design was based on Creative Scrappers Sketch 259. 

I layered a lot of the pieces and created dimension with popping up the stickers. I also used my Crafter's Workshop Mini Star Fall 6x6 Template for the added effect of the stars. (they are more visible on the edges but there are some in the middle --- that is how much fun I was having) 

Love popping up and layering. 

I gave myself a little pocked for journal cards. 

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!

Things have finally started slowing down at home & work. I now have a little more time for me and have been getting in some scrap time. I have been able to play along at Let's Get Sketchy and some of their challenges. Right now they have a Bingo Challenge

I sat down this morning and started at the challenge, my plan was to go diagonally from top/right to bottom/left. Then the kids ran in, dishes, laundry and a few phone calls sat back down and continued working. A little distracted I then started my line following the O column. I have two lines... lol... My layout contains, misting / 3 photo's / Christmas Paper (Fancy Pants Timbergrove) and Fancy Pants Doily. I also have tags, 3 Patter Papers from the Timbergrove line, used my circle punch & tag punch and the Crafter's workshop Mask. 

These pictures were taken by Barb Weir Photography. I love how the dynamic duo always manage to capture my daughter's fun spirit. 

I used Crafters Workshop Capricious mask, Mister Huey's opaque white from SC.

Here is to the first layout of 2014. 

Happy New Years my crafty friends.
