It seems that as the months pass, I not only look in wonder as my kids grow up so fast, but I also wonder how it possible to be this far behind in my scrapbooking when the girls as still so little! :) So, this month, I am at least going to try to get caught up with Christmas layouts – starting today!
These were some pictures of my youngest two years ago! She was so intent on ripping every piece of wrapping paper into the smallest bits she could. Even with everything else going on, she was totally focused on this task! And she was good at it too!
This 12×12 layout was one I created with Doodlebug‘s Home for the Holidays collection. You know I love Doodlebug – the bold, bright colours and clean, crisp patterns are so easy to work with. All the shapes were either cut with a paper cutter or with my trusty scissors. There are a lot of fun shapes to fussy cut in the paper line, so I was in heaven as I cut out those snowflakes. And the holly at the top was just drawn freehand and cut out – with a few super cute Doodlebug Mini Pearls for a fun pop!
Oh, and it really wouldn’t be a finished ScrappyCanuck layout without a little hidden something! :) Take a look:
One of the photos lifts up to reveal some hidden journaling! I love this technique because it is easy to create (if you ca fold a card, you can handle this too), and it leave a little something hidden for the girls to find when they get older – something for their eyes only (well, and all of yours! ;))
Well, that’sit for me today! Thanks for stopping by!
Welcome back to day two of our NOVEMBER Kraftin’ Kimmie Peeks!!! Today we are excited to share TWO super cute new sets by artist Cheryl Alger – SENDING ALL MY LOVE! and TOGETHER IS BETTER!
Today, I teamed up some bright and fun Doodlebug paper from the Take Note collection with one of the cutest stamps ever in the Together is Better set!
These cuties were coloured with Copics, and I think they are perfect for Valentine’s cards, anniversary cards or even “welcome home” or “welcome back” cards! So, if you’re just not ready to think about February yet, think of all the chances you could have before then to tell someone just how much they mean to you!
All the Krafty Girls listed below have lots of amazing designs to show you, so be sure to hop over to each of them! And while you’re there, be sure to leave a comment because we are giving away one of EACH of the new sets!!!
Oh, and don’t forget to come back tomorrow, because we have more sneak peeks to tease you with! Thanks for stopping by!
This card has been entered into the MarkerPOP Anything Goes challenge.
I have a fantastically fun stamp to share with you today! Last week, ChiChi Memories revealed their new stamp collection for August called “Friendship Set 1“, and I showed you one of the cute stamps called “For You“. Today, I got to play with “I Got Your Back“, and these two little gals are so cute! I think this makes a great encouragement card, but would also be great as a thank-you card with a sentiment like “Thanks for being there!” There really is a lot you could do with it!
I teamed up these cuties with paper from Doodlebug’s Fruit Stamp collection, because you know I love my bright and bold colours. I kept the layout simple because of all the detail in the patterned paper, and I didn’t want the stamped image to get lost in all that business!
Well, that’s it for me today! Thanks for stopping by!
Card entered into the following challenges:
It’s challenge time at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps and I am telling you – I love this one! It’s called Guns and Roses, and if you are wondering how on earth this cute stamp can fit into that category, “Guns and Roses” is all about metal and flowers. So this week, you are challenged to find a way to use both in your project!
For this card, I teamed up the adorable Doodlebug Flowerbox collection (my flowers), with some brads (my metal), and one of our new and amazing stamps at Kraftin’ Kimmie from the You Know Whooo set. I even used a couple of the extra embellishment cloud stamps in the background.
I think this cutie owl would be great with all sorts of different sentiments.
So, I hope you will consider playing along this week! If having fun crafting wasn’t enough of an incentive, there is a great chance to win some Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps too!
Thanks for stopping by!
