Scrapbook Challenges Reveals (Super Long)

   It has been three weeks since I posted a reveal for SBC. During, the blogging vacation I have spending my time working with my dad on the storage renovation, cooking and avoiding my studio at all costs since it is like an oven in there during the summer.
Speaking of storage, the first page is about the progress. It uses sketch #396.
Supplies: cardstock ( The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Teresa Collins and My Mind's Eye), washi tape (My Mind's Eye), chipboard, (My Mind's Eye and Teresa Collins), diecut (My Mind's Eye), brads (My Mind's Eye), twine (The Robin's Nest), pen (Uniball) and stickers (Pebbles Inc. and Heidi Swapp)

   Here are some close-ups of the journaling. I am loving those little chalkboard tags and the little envelopes. 

   This page came together very quickly for me. Usually, double layouts are my nemesis. I never can get the papers to line up so one side is like a 1/4 inch lower, which this drives me crazy. However, thanks to one of my favorite scrappy items I don't have have that problem. Can guess what it is? It is washi tape. I first line my background papers side by side and ran the tape across both pages. I then added all my embellishments and papers. I kept the pages connected when it came time to photograph the spread.  Thanks to my dear friend, Kelly, she turned me unto Teresa Collins papers. I am loving it.
   This next page uses sketch 397. This is another My Mind's Eye page. I think I might have a problem with this company. I have lots a paper from them but rarely use it, until now.
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (My Mind's Eye and October Afternoon), stickers (My Mind's Eye and American Crafts), chipboard (My Mind's Eye) twine (Timeless Twine) stitch template (American Crafts)
   On this page I played Mad Doctor with the thickers. I hate when I have the perfect color of them and realize that I don't have the correct letters. To correct this problem the craft knife comes out and it is time to get creative. For example, 3's becomes E's and 8's becomes S's.
Here is a close-up of my mad doctoring skills. 
On this page, I wanted to scrap an older photo since I was getting tired of doing current moments. A little digging and I came across this cute photo of my mom when she was a silly munchkin.
   Now, onto the current reveal. Sketch 398 was a super fun page that documents the end of an era for quality family television service.I will always miss Sky Angel. 

Supplies: pattern paper (Cosmo Cricket and Carta Bella) washi tape (Studio Calico, Scotch Brand, My Mind's Eye, Hazel & Ruby and Studio G) tags (Studio Calico), wood veneer (Maya Road) stamps (EK Success) ink (Stampabilities and Prima) gelato (Faber-Castell) stencil (Studio Calico) enamel shapes(My Mind's Eye) twine (?) sequins (Studio Calico) stickers (American Crafts) pen (American Crafts) doily and modeling paste.
Here are some close-ups. 

The reason why I said this was a fun layout to make was because it was the first time I got to talk to Kelly. I was a virtual crop. We spent 94 minutes video chatting. It would have been longer if skype didn't keep crashing on me.

   I hereby promise not to get behind on my blogging this summer. I am sure you all are tired of this long post. i just want to say thanks for taking time out to read this.
