Scrappy Sunday – 18 Month Layout

For today’s layout I wanted to do something to help remember the everyday for Amelia.  There are so many milestones as our babies grow up, but it is the little things I want to remember as well.  Those little adorable crazy faces she makes or her favourite food at the moment.  So, I did an 18 month layout of a day Amelia and I were hanging out by ourselves and she was goofing around with a mini slinky.  The title of the layout was…

She was wearing her little Tommy Hilfiger dress that was black & white with red.  I didn’t have many embellishments in those colours so instead of running to the store, I thought I would just make my own.  So much faster and cheaper that way.  The first thing I did was take a couple white paper doilies and rub the outside edges right onto a red ink pad.

I didn’t really have any black and white paper either but I did have some mistables paper from Pink Paislee.  It had a cute chevron pattern and I took my black ink pad right to it and just rubbed it on until the paper was covered.   I took a paper towel to rub off the excess and voila, the pattern appeared.

Here is the entire 18 month layout.  I added some pretty pins and a flower from Webster’s Pages.  The black flowers I had in my stash (luckily) but I am not sure where they are from.

Here is the left side.  Check out those adorable faces she makes, haha.

Here is the right side, with Amelia’s foot covering part of it, the little stinker.  God forbid I should be trying to do something without her.  She just had to involve herself some how :).  I used a lot of vintage items in this layout such as the red buttons, the old flash card and an old explosives card for the Pennsylvania Railway (I ordered a bunch of cool cards off of e-bay for my art).

Here is the card that her foot was covering.  Just a few things I thought we might want to remember as she gets older.

Hopefully these are things she will want to know as she gets older as well and let her know how much she is loved.

 

Scrappy Sunday – Wedding Mini Album

This week I decided to do a little wedding mini album tutorial.  So, I pulled out my Webster’s Pages 12″ die cuts.

I folded them in half and used double sided tape to stick the backsides to each other.  For the outside cover I took a simple file folder and traced around the die cut.  I then folded it back on itself to cut both sides at once (much more efficient that way:).

I applied ink straight from the pad to the edges of all the pages to make them all a little cohesive and to cover up any extra space there may have been between die cuts.

I also applied some green acrylic paint using a Ranger Paint Dabber.  Here is the finished cover.  The file folder works really well for this.  I only glued the back part of the album to the back part of the folder as there are already built in creases to accommodate for thickness.

Before gluing down by title, I flipped them upside down and sprayed them with the graphite Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to add some interest.

All the of products used were from Webster’s Pages.  Aren’t the cameos just gorgeous!!!

The round flower looking ones are called princess petals, such an appropriate name.

I just love how all of their papers and accessories just flow.  Kind of takes all the guesswork out for you.  I literally had an idea, sat down and finished this within a couple hours.  Even with the constant interruption of children flowing in and out and climbing on my lap, haha.

I tried to keep things simple as I will add more details once I get some pictures in and figure out my layouts a little more.

A wedding mini album would be a great gift idea for that special couple getting married in your life.  Pretty simple but yet so meaningful.  There is nothing better then a gift made with love.

 

Scrappy Sunday – Friends Layouts – Part Deux

These layouts are a continuation of my last Friends Layout post I did.  I started a scrapbook of my friend’s bachlorette and I was trying to get it done for the rehearsal dinner.  However, it is not looking good, haha.  I still have other wedding paper goodies to prepare so I likely won’t have time.

The first friends layout is for the Maid of Honour, it is a picture of them when they were in University, super cute and young.

I tried to keep the embelishments simple as I wanted the focus to more be on the picture and words.  I did make sure each page had some bling.  I am loving this orange trim from Webster’s Pages.

My next and last layout for today was mine.  I love adding red to black and white, it just pops.

A little shine and check out the awesome red trim.  The material is velvety and reminds me of a 70′s jumpsuit, so cool.

A good way to add visual balance is to have three points (in a triangular form) of visual interest or colour.  So, I added an embroidered little red bird to finish off the page.

Oh, oh, before I forget, I got my order from Dick Blick the other day.  Odd name, I know, hehe.  They have the most amazing variety of art supplies.  Felt like it was Christmas when I got it.  I am going to do a little video in the next couple of days to show you my stash.  You are going to be jealous, I am sure.

Girly Scrappy Sunday

This week’s layout is all about me, hence the “Girly Scrappy Sunday”  Webster’s Pages put out a challenge on their blog asking…

and of course, (besides having my girls) the answer is hands down…

There are so many amazing ones out there to choose from, not to mention accessories always fit :)  Here is the entire page.

Almost everything in the layout is from the Ladies & Gents collection at Webster’s Pages.  The beautiful cameos and hearts are ‘perfect accents’, love them!!

The black flower is a ‘princess petal’.  The pictures are of my favourite Tiffany braclet and a button ring I just bought at the New Art Festival today.  More on the festival soon.

What is your favourite thing about being a girl???

Scrappy Sunday – A Nice Spring Walk

This layout started with a nice spring walk.  This week is also loosely based on the same layout template as my previous one.  I had this gorgeous flower diecut from Webster’s Pages that was the same shape as the center piece I wanted to use.

Here is the double page layout of us taking a walk after dinner when we went to Peterborough for Easter.

One page at a time…

The ”family” tag and journaling card are from Stampin Up!

The bird and swirlies are from Prima and are paper backed canvas pieces called “mistables”.  Here is a video with a few different types of mistables and what you can do with them.  They are pretty cool as they help bring my love of mixed media into my scrapbooking.  I used a Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist to spray them with but you could use ink in a spray bottle and just dilute it a little with water.

Some come with a pattern that resists the ink when you spray them.  Just like this bird piece.  I added a little pearl for his eye.

I am going to leave you with a link to a video with different mistables and some great ideas for other scrapbook layouts.

Scrappy Sunday – Baby Layout

It’s Scrappy Sunday time again and I am posting another baby layout!!

This week I went to a crop at the local Ottawa scrapbooking store The Scrapbox.  Jen, the owner, is always so sweet and helpful that I had been wanting to go for a while and just finally did.  Everyone was so friendly, it was great.  I worked on my art journal cover and got this baby layout done of Amelia when she was 3 months old.

I wanted the main colour scheme scheme to be teal and that vibrant pink.  As you can see, it is the colour of her dress and my shirt.

All of the metal embellishments are from the Ambrosia Trinkets set that I believe was just released at CHA by Bo Bunny.  Jen had just gotten her order in and they hadn’t even been put out yet.

I took a paper distresser to the picture frames and title circle, then applied some brown ink so you could see it a little better.

I then went through my stash of leftover papers to find some in the colour scheme and used different sized punches to make the circle border that runs along the bottom of the photos.  Such a great way to use up scraps.

The adorable pink rosette trim is called bloomers and is from Webster’s Pages.  I have it in a few different colours and have been dying to use them.  You would think I was sponsored by Webster’s the amount I mention them, haha.

Another layout done for the baby book.  YEY!!!
