Meet George - SBC #FlashbackFriday

   This upcoming sketch is from a flashback friday sketch reveal from Scrapbook Challenges. 
   This is what I came up with. 
Supplies: cardstock (Core'dinations), pattern paper (American Crafts, Studio Calico and Jillibean Soup), stickers (My Mind's Eye), wood veneer (Studio Calico),  journaling card (Project Life), gelato (Faber-Castell), mask (Studio Calico), modeling paste (Liquitex) and doily (Doodlebug Design)

   I have to be honest and say I am not a fan of this page but I am glad I scrapped about this plant my parents have had for 30 years. It is older than my brother and I. That has to be a record for this family since plants tend to die on us.

All Wrapped Up - SBC Trend

In May, we focused on the foil trend that is all the rage in the paper crafting industry. 
   I love this trend and I knew I had a pad of paper that had tons of foiling throughout it. It is funny how this is so popular right now because this paper I used is about three years old. 
Supplies: pattern paper (Die Cuts With a View and Crate Paper), doily (Doodlebug Design), washi tape (We R Memory Keepers), gelato (Faber-Castell), stickers (Prima, American Crafts and Studio Calico), chipboard (Prima) and canvas embellishments (Studio Calico)

   One thing I love about this paper is that the foiling acts like a resits so I was able to use gelatos without it messing up the pattern. 

   Thanks for stopping by and be sure to keep popping in to see more of the Scrapbook Challenges backlog of projects I am sharing.

The Gamer - SBC #445

   This week over at Scrapbook Challenges was a great sketch #445  reveal. I loved this sketch and I made it super ahead of time but forgot one thing. I forgot to submit it to be on the reveal post. That was a first. Even, though, I did that I still want to share it here.
   Here is my take on it.
 Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio and Die Cuts With a View), pattern paper (Kaiser Craft and Crate Paper), washi tape (Scotch Brand), die cuts (Teresa Collins, Kaiser Craft and Crate Paper), stickers (Jillibean Soup), doily (The Paper Studio), stitching template (American Crafts), mist (Tattered Angels) and embroidery floss.

   I am sure you are like me and you have pattern paper in your stash you will never use. I decided I have too much of that so I am starting to use the plain white side to replace white cardstock. This way I get to use some stash and not have to go out and spend money for white cardstock. 

   The "THE" in the title is stitched with black embroidery floss. I am still in love with hand stitching and it doesn't look like I will be out of love for that any time soon.

Love That Bottle - SBC 442

    Remember me? I am the girl that shares her work on this blog, who set up a weekly routing on posting and who epicly failed at it three weeks ago.  I am happy to say that this week I am remedying that problem. To kick that off, I am posting this week's sketch reveal from Scrapbook Challenges. 
The sketch #442 is a great one to eliminate some of those odd scraps that we scrappers like to hold on to for something special. 
   Here is my take on it. 
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Fancy Pants Designs, Studio Calico card kit paper pad and Glitz Designs), doily (Doodlebug Design), stickers (Jillibean Soup and My Mind's Eye), twine (Timeless Twine), stitching template (American Crafts), mists (Tattered Angels), pen (Project Life) and washi tape (Scotch Brand).

   I love to add a little extra depth to my flat alphas by just outline them with a 05 pen.

   Thanks for dropping by and I am sure there will be more posts. I am thinking about adding some food posts.
