The Greeting Farm Challenge - Love is in the Air

I am back today sharing another card I made for The Greeting Farm's Challenge. This week's challenge is to show a Valentine's/Love creation. Here is my card:

The image I used was from The Greeting Farm Miss Anya Scarves Stamp Set. I colored Anya with Copic markers and added a sentiment from Mama Elephant. I thought the image was perfect since it has been so cold here this past week!

Hope you are staying warm wherever you are and thanks for stopping by!

Card for The Greeting Farm Challenge

Well I have been away from my blog for quite awhile but am coming back to share a card today. The main reason I have been away is due to one word - Pregnancy! I am pregnant with #3 and this one has caused me to be very sick. I am FINALLY feeling a little better now that I am 18 weeks, I hope it keeps up!

Anyways, the card I am sharing is for The Greeting Farm - Farm Fresh Friday Challenge - Get Wordy. The challenge is to use an image from The Greeting Farm and use a sentiment or words somewhere on the card. Here is my card:

I used an image from the Miss Anya Scarves stamp set and colored it with Copic markers. The paper and sentiments I used are from Studio Calico kits. The big snowflakes were cut with my Silhouette Cameo and the small sequins snow flakes are from Lawn Fawn.

I hope you are having a good week - Thanks for stopping by!

Gossamer Blue - October Kit layouts

I wanted to share the layouts I have made with the Gossamer Blue October Main Scrapbook kit. I just started subbing this month and just got the main kit - There is a lot in this kit! I made 5 layouts with mostly the kit and also made a Project Life spread and a card. I may show the PL page later but the card was basically a copy of one of the DT cards so don't really feel as though I should share :) - you can see the CT card (by Joy Taylor) HERE. I still have quite a few items left in the kit. I may make a few more cards or layouts or just break it up and add it to my stash - I haven't decided just yet :)

Here are my five layouts posted in the order I made them- I have included below items added from my stash:

Stash items - Tag

Stash items - vellum
(Inspired/Lifted from THIS LAYOUT by Mel Blackburn on the CT team)

Stash items - used Silhouette Cameo to cut title, MME buttons

Stash items - Red Copic marker to change color of letter stickers, Striped Fabric Tape from Maya Road; Puffy Stickers from Gossamer Blue On My Desk, Tag, Enamel Dots, Red and Blue Patterned papers (behind the photo)

Stash items - Orange and Grey Copic marker to change color of letter stickers, Arrow wood veneer, circle die/punch

As you can see, I really did not have to add a lot from my stash for these layouts. You can check out what other Members have made using this kit HERE.

Scrap Our Stash - Sketch Challenge for October 2014

I have not felt the best this week so just now sharing my layout for the Scrap Our Stash Sketch Challenge this month. I ended up scrapbooking a picture of me and my sweet NEW nephew, Asher. Here it is:

I have to admit, I procrastinated this challenge as looking at all those colors kind of intimidated me, but then I began to just focus on a few and it got a lot easier! For my layout, I pulled together papers using four of the colors and went from there. The colors I used were Misted Yellow, Royal Blue, Aluminum and Aurora Red - the tags also have a little bit of Cognac. I flipped parts of the sketch and made an 8 1/2 x 11 layout instead of the 12 x 12 in the sketch. I added sewing and a few embellishments and called it done!

Here is the sketch and the color challenge that goes along with it:

Scrap Our Stash - Sketch Challenge #18

I am very late getting this post up sharing my Scrap Our Stash layout for the Sketch Challenge #18. Let's just say that September has been tough! My busiest time at work is August - October 15th and Brian is in the middle of football so basically we are purely in survival mode around here! Mid-October cannot come soon enough for me! 

The Scrap Our Stash challenge I am sharing is over and a new challenge is up but nonetheless, I thought I would share my layout and the sketch. I loved this sketch as it was not one that was something I would think to use but ended up really liking my layout. So here is the sketch and my layout:

This was one of my favorite sketches yet, and I loved how it worked with my pictures! For my A-B-C stash items, I used an ampersand embellishment, brads, and chipboard heart and stars. I have not used a brad in a long time so glad this challenge got me to dig in my stash!

Be sure to check out the current challenge at Scrap Our Stash - HERE.

Scrap Our Stash - Stash Challenge #18 - Back to School

This week has been busy busy busy! I love the fall but it is truly our busiest time of the year! Anyways, I am popping in to share my layout for the Scrap Our Stash - Stash Challenge #18 - Back to School. The challenge is as follows:

For this challenge you are required to shop your scrap stash for school supplies, create a layout and include the school supplies on your page found on the lists below:

(1) or more items from list A: 
Lined or ruled paper (striped paper does not count)
Chalkboard paper
Dictionary paper or a page from a book

(3) or more items from list B:
File Folder
Library Pocket and/or card
Pencil or pen
Paper Clip
Chalkboard embellishment

When uploading your layout, please list the items you used from both lists.
You can use additional items, and your layout does not have to be school themed.

Even though the layout does not have to be school themed, I ended up doing a school layout. Here is my take on the Challenge:

"For this challenge, I decided to scrapbook my oldest's first official day of Pre-K. 
I used a lot of the Studio Calico August Kit on my layout. 
The lined notebook paper was perfect for the background and challenge guidelines. 
For my other 3 stash items, I added alphas, an arrow paperclip and a number die cut."

The sponsor this month is My Kreative Pursuits. The prize is their You Make Me Happy September Workshop Kit:

My Kreative Pursuits is not only awarding our September winner their September Workshop Kit, they are also offering a 20% discount for SOS followers as long as supplies last.
