Snow Day Layout

It's crop weekend at Paper Issues and I joined the Fall Back In Time challenge. The idea is to use an old technique. I used inking paper edges but I think most people would agree that they do this all the time anyway! I spent alllll day working on this layout. I had zero inspiration and finally got the idea to build a snow fort.

Dorothy Layout for S.I.T.

The latest sketch at Sketches In Thyme has lots of possibilities. I used the Wizard of Oz paper pad from Paper House Productions to showcase a picture of my husband with Dorothy at the wax museum. I love how it turned out.
Here is the sketch:
I added a bit more than in the sketch in an attempt to keep the page balanced. How awesome is that brick stamp?

I'm So Scary It's Cute Layout for P.H.P. and Tombow

We get to show off a bunch of cool products this week on the Paper House Productions blog! There is even a 25% off sale happening, so if you would like some Halloween products just use the code: SPOOKYDT17 valid Oct. 8 - 14, 2017 in the Paper House Store.
I used a free spider web cut file from Paper Issues. The title is a cut file from the Silhouette Store. The rest of the products are form the Wicked Good or Life Organized Halloween collection from Paper House Productions. They have the cute pockets (cat and ghosts), puffy stickers, 3D stickers (that skeleton's arm moves!) and cardstock stickers. I just love how this turned out!
Here are the Tombow products I used. The Mono Glue Pen in the picture was fantastic for adhering all those spider webs and the tiny letters in my title. The TwinTone markers were great for journaling.
Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Halloween!

Autumn Layout

A new favourite layout! I sat down to make something for the Free File Friday challenge at Paper Issues and love what happened. I grabbed an cut file and doubled it erasing the flower that came with it. Then I added this picture from my daughter's nursery school class. I decided to use the Pebbles Woodland Forest collection as I had not cut into it yet (common trend I have going). Backing the cuts took forever but Netflix got me through. The next day I used clear gesso to prime the paper and plastic packaged the yellow paint and splattered some orange.

Happy Swing Layout

I had some time to play with an old (and unopened!) kit this week. I broke out the Fancy Pants Happy Place kit.
I used this sketch from Stuck Sketches?!
I found I didn't have many embellishments in this kit so I grabbed some puffy stickers from the Life Is Beautiful collection.

Great Outdoors Fishing Layout for P.H.P.

I love the new Great Outdoors Collections from Paper House Productions! I used the fishing kit for my latest layout. There is a tutorial on the Paper House blog so please stop by and check it out. Here is the final layout.
We had a great day trying to catch a fish although with no luck. I love the 3D stickers that capture this fun day just the way it happened. The colors are so vibrant - it is a great collection.
