Merry Pinkmas Layout

Here is my last layout of 2017 with pictures from 2016. I really needed to use the Fa La La collection but my picture order wasn't ready so I had to go with last year's pictures.
I played around with this layout for so long but like how it turned out.

Pink ink (around word)
Gold paper and Pink String from Dollarama

Christmas Joy Layout Inspired by Pinterest for P.H.P.

I'm so excited for Christmas but also sad that this is my last post as part of the 2017 Design Team. This has been such an amazing experience for me - thank-you Paper House Productions! Now for my final layout. Our theme this week is to be inspired by a layout from the Paper House Productions Pinterest page. I chose a layout by our fabulous team leader - Christine Meyer.
Here is my layout:
Here is Christine's layout:
Supplies for Christmas Joy Layout: Christmas Stick On Pockets, Christmas Puffy Sticker, Merry & Bright 3D Stickers, Christmas Memories 12" Double Sided Scrapbook Paper, Better When Camping 12" Double Sided Scrapbook Paper, Christmas Joy Tags 12" Double Sided Scrapbook Paper, Christmas Joy 12" Acetate Paper, Christmas Magic Cardstock Multi Pack, Gold Dots 12" Double Sided Scrapbook Paper.

 I thought putting paint behind an acetate paper was a brilliant idea. It was so much fun. I splattered and smooshed it with plastic packaging on a piece of white cardstock. The plaid paper is from the Great Outdoors collection and the remainder is from the Christmas Joy collection.

I cut the stars from the stick on pockets. This was a great way to stretch my supplies. I've made so many layouts and cards with this collection!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by the Pinterest page for lots of inspiration for your Paper House goodies! Happy Holidays!

We're Funny Periodically Layout for S.I.T.

There is a nice, simple sketch at Sketches In Thyme this week. It could make a layout full of negative space or open to lots of interpretation. I really wanted to scrap this picture of my colleagues so this sketch was a good start.
Here is the sketch:

I knew there was a good reason to save this periodic table paper! I finally get to use it. I have no idea where it came from but I suppose it is a Halloween collection. This was a great stash buster.

Christmas Joy Layout for Paper House Productions

Are you getting excited for Christmas?! I sure am! I'm back today with a scrapbook layout using the Christmas Joy collection from Paper House Productions. There are so many fun stickers and pretty papers, this layout was easy to make.
Supplies for Christmas Joy Layout: Christmas Memories 12" Double Sided Scrapbook Paper, Merry and Bright 3D Sticker, Christmas Magic Cardstock Multi Pack, Christmas Flake Stickers, Christmas Puffy Clips, Christmas Stick On Pockets, Peace Joy and Love 12" Double Sided Scrapbook PaperChristmas Joy Tags 12" Double Sided Foil Scrapbook Paper.

I began with these two pictures of super excited children eagerly awaiting their gifts. I really love the Christmas Memories paper so I used it as my background. I cut out the wreath with my Silhouette Cameo using the Peace Joy Love paper. Next I layered the stripe paper behind my photos. On the other side of the photos, I used the poinsettia stick on pockets. The holly leaf stick on pocket is perfect for holding one of my pictures.

 Can you find the flake stickers on my layout? They blend in so perfectly, it is hard to tell they are not part of the pictures. The star on the tree, the Santa hat, the holly leaves and four of the presents are flake stickers.
To finish the layout I used a 3D title and pulled the puffy clip present off the clip to add dimension. There are also cardstock stickers for some sentiments, the date and star embellishments.
Make sure to stop by the Paper House Shop to pick-up some Christmas goodies! Have a wonderful, scrappy holiday season!
