Cool Dude

I am getting a lot of scrapping done today with being on Vacation!!!

Here is another layout that I would like to share with you today....


The title says it all....Cool Dude relaxing with some tunes!!!

Here are a couple of closeups....


The colours in this Me & My Big Ideas title are just perfect for my photo!


I added a Project Life type quote to the bottom of the layout with my journalling as it just seemed perfect for the photo.

Product List: Jillibean Soup papers, AC Cardstock, Me & My Big Idea embellishment and acrylic paint splatters.

I was inspired by the Sketches in Thyme #277 sketch.


I kept the embellishing simple as the sketch illustrated.

Lil' Birdies

I fussy cut around the doily, flowers and bird card to add to my layout.


Product List: MME Paper, stickers & die cuts, AC clip, DCWV vellum and ribbon from Celebrate It - Aria.

FAMILY WREATH 2012 - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

We are right in the middle of the first long weekend of the summer here in Canada and we are having a blast. This long weekend is in celebration of Queen Victoria's birthday which falls on May 24th. Hence the name May 24 weekend!!!

Since it is Sunday that means it is time for another Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team reveal. We are continuing with the theme of "All About the BIG Picture" and today's challenge is to use many photos to create one large shape.

Here is my layout....


I know I am a little off season with a Christmas layout, but I thought this layout was perfect for the challenge. I like to make a layout every year that shows everyone at that Christmas (as you can see, I am a little behind). So for 2012, I choose to make a large wreath with my Cricut and adore all of our smiling faces on Christmas ornaments.

Here are some closeups....


I added the title with black glittery alphas from Making Memories.


The papers are all from MME and the eyelets are from my stash.

Make sure to stop by the Lasting Memories Blog and check out the rest of the design teams creations and then be sure to link yours up so we can see your idea for this challenge.


Thanks for stopping by! Stay Crafty!!! And enjoy the rest of the Long May 24 weekend!!!

Fun Project Life Style Cards

Happy Wednesday everyone! Tonight I would like to share with you a few Project Life Style Cards with you.


A few fun MME embellishments, Heidi Swapp epoxy title and a few doodles and voila!!!



This one has an element left over from a layout, a couple of MME chipboard pieces and some brads from my stash.



On this one I used a wide piece of washi, a MME chipboard button and a Recollections metal "Love" to finish it off.


I was inspired by the sketches from Sketches In Thyme Project Life Style.

CELEBRATE - Lasting Memories Layout Challenges DT Reveal

Happy Mother's Day out there to all the wonderful Moms in the world.

Today is time for another Lasting Memories Layout Challenges Design Team Reveal. We are continuing with the theme of "All About the BIG Picture"  and today's challenge is to use paper strips or washi tape in a big way.

Since today is Mother's Day, I chose to create a layout about my Mom! Here is my layout....


This photo was taken last year at my Mom's 88th birthday party. My siblings and I posed for the photo with my Mom.

Here are some closeups....


I chose to use washi tape in a big way on my layout. I layered different strips of washi over a stamped background. And then I added some embellies and a title and voila...completed layout!


I cut the title using a font and my Silhouette.


Product List: AC Cardstock, Ranger Ink, various washi tapes from my stash, We R Memory Keepers enamel shapes, Fancy Pants tin pin, Bella Blvd flag, Little Yellow Bicycle tag, Echo Park enamel dots and the clips are from my stash.

Make sure to stop by the Lasting Memories Blog and check out the rest of the teams creations.

I want to share a little story with you.....I always show my completed layouts to my husband when I am done. He looked at this layout and then told me that I am very lucky....he is so very right about that. How lucky is a girl to have so many wonderful people in my life? Very, very lucky!!!! And especially to be able to share today with my Mom!!!


Happy Mother's Day! XOXOXO

Mason Family

The sun is shining...a great way to start a Monday morning. Today I would like to share the companion layout from yesterday.


I mirrored the layout that I shared with you yesterday. Another family shot from the wedding. Photo courtesy of Luxarte Studios.

Here are some closeups...


I changed up the design a little to make each page a little different.



I used two Silhouette cut files for the title. The family heart is a freebie from Printable Cuttable Creatable and the Mason is from Silhouette. Good to have a name that goes with a popular jar!!!


So again this goes with the Lasting Memories challenge to add twine, hemp etc.... to your layout in a Big Way.
