Wednesday Layout

Quick page with a silly photo – my friend Arleigh always gives me a hard time about not scrapping my own stories so this one is for her

All goodies from the January Cocoa Daisy Kit except for film strip.

It’s in the cards

This month at Tattered Angels, we’re all crafting up some cards with a little help from our friends at Epiphany Crafts. My first card was inspired by a new book I picked up recently –Collage Couture by Julie Nutting. Such a fun book with great tips for illustrations and collage work.  I clearly need more practice- I cut my girly out of dictionary paper and misted her with Tattered Rose Glimmer Mist, her top is a scrap with some Mermaid Glam and her skirt is made from hearts punched using the Epiphany Button Studio Heart Tool.  For the background I used a Glimmer Screen from the Fancifuls set and Patina Glimmer Mist on top of some Bo Bunny paper.  A few butterflies coated in Big Apple Glimmer Glam to cover up a stamping boo-boo and this card is ready to roll.

Up next, a card with flowers using one of my favorite things to mist – Athletic Tape.  I discovered this one by accident and just love how the color saturates the tape without it losing it’s stickiness.  I sprayed strips of tape with Patina, Turquoise Blue and Dragonfly Glimmer Mists and then accordion folded them into flowers. The tag was left over from last month’s Birthday Girl layout.  For the background I used the plastic grid from a latch hook rug kit as a stencil.

Have you noticed all the projects with pinwheels popping up around the web,  it’s no wonder, they are a great icon of the carefree days of summer.  I couldn’t resist making a card with them.  For the background I was inspired by a piece of paper from Sassafrass’s Sunshine Broadcast collection – since I couldn’t really cut the paper to scale and maintain the look, I created a similar look with glimmer glam, mists and a little distress ink.  Remember that Glimmer Glam works as a resist when you mist on top of it.


Until next time…

Oh how I love buttercream…

but sadly with the adaption to the the clean eating lifestyle I can’t really eat it any more.  So what’s a girl to do- scrap with it of course.  I was organizing my photos and layouts and realized that I had used Bazzill’s Buttercream yellow for a base on several layouts –


hmm seeing them side by side makes me think this is not buttercream – oh well close enough.

{Insert Something Witty Here}

Sorry kids, a cold has taken over my brain and can’t seem to formulate anything to write in this post, but I do have a quick layout to share.

Thanks to Ronda who let me come play and watch as she works her way through great projects for her upcoming book,  I actually scrapped some photos I printed out oh a month or so ago.  I think one of my favorite things about scrapbooking is pulling out summer photos on a cold and wintery day and reminding ourselves the sun will shine again…someday.

Since a layout doesn’t seem to be complete these days without a little shimmer and glimmer, I decided to paint the Studio Calico tree paper with some Sugar Cane glimmer glaze and added some highlights and splotches with  Espresso Bean and Tutu Pink Glimmer Glam.

Hope your week is fabulous!

Hooray for President’s Day

For so many years I worked places that didn’t believe in celebrating this day as a holiday, but now…

wohoo!  it comes at the perfect time just as the blahs of February start to set in.  Not that I have done anything particularly meaningful today, but it’s been nice to have an extra day…at least my bathroom is cleaner for it…and an extra load of laundry is in the wash…

brownies are next on the agenda

and then maybe a little more scrapping…it’s week 7 of the DYL class and I’m only a couple of layouts behind, better than I would have predicted. Now I’ve made it this far I have a system and a schedule that seems to be working.  Hope I didn’t just jinx it…

Here’s a layout from week 5 that I haven’t shared yet…

I didn’t think I was going to be able to use this pattern from BG, but it turns out it’s pretty perfect on a page about tinker toys.

sometimes in life, it’s the little things that add up to happiness like…

a good hair day

library fines forgiven

scrappy supplies in the mail

discovering a great new song

hearing an old great song and remembering how much you love it

a happy dog who cheerfully greets you

friendly emergency vets that charge visit fees when you take your garbage dog in because he won’t stop gagging until you get to the vet and then he’s miraculously fine

finishing a layout like this one and thinking ‘hey, that turned out pretty cool‘…

Since I did two weeks of DYL together I’m not sure if this sketch is from week 5 or 6,  I suppose it doesn’t really matter since I love it so much. A bonus I finally found something to use the doily rub-ons I’ve been hoarding for months.
