2022 Congrats card for Sketch N Scrap card sketch challenge

  Hello and welcome to the 1st card sketch of July over at Sketch N Scrap challenge blog. I love this card sketch that Lisa created just a fun one that can be used in so many ways, here's the sketch:

This is what I created from this sketch:

The grandson's Graduation card, I'm blessed to have had a local scrapbooking shop here years ago and was able to get some local school papers and been hoarding it for special projects. This one I fussy cut out one of the patterns on the overall paper for that flower spot on the sketch. Found the quote on a school reference sticker sheet. Using the school colors as I have my on memories of attending that school too. We certainly wish him well off to college and playing football too.

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I created and can't wait to see what you create from this cool sketch over at Sketch N Scrap blog.

CKC - July 2022 Kit Reveal - The Getaway

 Good Morning and welcome! July it is and I'm here with a new kit for the month. This month I'm the host, but 1st you should have arrived here from Misty's blog

As the summer months come into being so does vacations so I thought that this would be a great kit to inspire us to get out those vacation theme scrapbook items and those vacation pictures to be scrapped.

May 2022 ROUND TRIP 12 x 12 Add-On Kit from Citrus Twist

Capture your travel stories with this kit that features alot of Maggie Holmes Round Trip Collection (American Crafts) plus products from Pinkfresh Studio, 49 and Market, and Citrus Twist. This kit contains 12 x 12 patterned paper and embellishments 

I love an awesome travel kit so was drawn to this and loved the color pallet too, mine did stray a bit from the color pallet but I did stay with in the theme and I have lots of vacation photos I want to get scrapped this month. 

The Getaway

the papers:
Close Ups:
Puffy stickers, cork stickers, enamel stickers and the chalkboard style stickers
chipboard words, die cuts, sticker sheet
more word phrases, wood veneer, gems, die cuts
doilies, tickets
I brought in 2 paper pads in 6x6 and 4x6 for layering and matting.
My mists, inks and any other mixed media supplies I'll pull in as needed.
Thanks for stopping by today. I need to see what the other girls have pulled together and a good place to start is over at Tara's blog  I'm excited to see how the inspiration moved her for her kit :) and if you get lost here is the full list:

Family Memories Happy Easter LO for Counterfeit Kit Challenge

Good Morning, June has went by way to quickly this month! We had some great weather, this past week it's been a bit hot but I'll take it!  Welcome to the 2nd challenge over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Kate is the host this month and she has this to say: This time it's a photo challenge!  For Challenge #2, I want you to use black and white photos on your layout, I feel that they make such a HUGE visual impact.   And while some people may find it hard to scrap b/w photos, here are some tips she supplied about using black and white photos:

1.  Don't use too many embellishments otherwise you'll drown out the photos.  Keep it simple.

2.  Make your papers and embellishments accent the photo. Pretend you can see the colors in the pictures and then use those colors.

3.  Clusters are your friend!  Keep some white space!

4.  When I'm photographing events or things, I purposely change my camera settings and take a few b/w shots so I don't have to convert them.

I used a sketch to help me with my layout inspiration and my lovely Family Picnic kit too:

My siblings pictures, looks like it's my brother Steve's 1st Easter. Patty, Charlie and Steve is in the group picture. I've had these hanging around my scrap room for quite a while and I'm glad I had a challenge to help me use them. Grab some Easter embellishments for the layout but the rest came from my kit.
Thank you for stopping by today and seeing what I'm up to in my little corner of the world. I hope you join us over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog for this fun challenge.

Go Somewhere Lovely LO for Sketch N Scrap challenge

Good Morning and welcome :) Summer has arrived in PA the weather has been beautiful lately.

We got a fun challenge over at Sketch N Scrap for the day. A wonderful sketch from Lori this is her 1st sketch and man did she do great!
The background for the sketch got me, just so creatively different. This is the layout I created with it:
I used black cardstock for the base and added these fun patterns to the layout :) It was fun to be scrapping again, work has been interfering quite a bit with my scrappy time :) 29 years married you see there in that picture a day early and a path we both enjoy taking daily through the trail around our house.
I used my current counterfeit kit : Family Picnic for the layout and love how it all came together. Thanks for stopping by my little corner today and seeing what I'm creating.
So now it's your turn let's see what you can do with the sketch.Thanks for stopping by today to see what I created and can't wait to see what you create from this cool sketch over at Sketch N Scrap blog.

CKC - June 2022 Kit Reveal - Family Picnic

 Hey Hey! A day late but I got it together :) Sometimes life just gives you a bunch of lemons and you have to make the lemonade sooner or later :) Well this is just a little later. Whew! We hit summer in my part of the world like over night during the holiday :) I'm not complaining I'll take this over that one stuff any day of the week. You should have arrived from Lisa's blog I bet she's got an amazing kit! 

Kate has hostess duties this month and this is the kit she chose:

She says: Ahh, summer is here! Well, not "officially" according to the official date on the calendar but to me, it's here! This month, I wanted to pick a versatile kit to counterfeit that made me think of summer here in the US but also a kit that could still work in other places where it's not summer.

The kit I chose is called NOVEMBERKIT 2021 from DaniPeuss.de and I love that it is full of various shades of pink, blues and yellows all inspired by Paige Evans' Bungalow Lane collection:

Well I knew I had a couple pieces from the Bungalow Lane Collection and the die cuts so that is where I started my kit and then it took off on it's own:

 Family Picnic

With a graduation this month I knew I had some picnic photos to scrap so lots of embellishments pointed towards family. The papers:
The Alphas and Word Phrases:
The embellishments:
and I included this cut file kit it has that same quilt pattern and thought it would be a good time to use that and that cute picnic type tissue paper too :) should be a nice addition to the rest of the kit this month.
My mists, inks and any other mixed media supplies I'll pull in as needed.
Thanks for stopping by today. I need to see what the other girls have pulled together and a good place to start is over at Tara's blog  I'm excited to see how the inspiration moved her for her kit :) and if you get lost here is the full list

Cozy Days Together LO

  Playing along with Pinkfresh Studio celebrating iNSD with their challenge of ANYTHING GOES while using their "the best day" collection I created this layout and it's the 2nd layout I made that day. Loved using just one collection for creating a fast layout! 

Everything on this layout is from that collection except for the pictures :) Just about got the papers from this kit kicked! Love me some Pinkfresh Studio :)
