Hey there! Scrap Our Stash has a great new sketch up to use with the latest stash challenge!
The sketch:

No automatic alt text available.

The stash part of the challenge is this:
Create a layout inspired by this sketch and add an item from your stash that starts with each letter of the word - SUMMER

This is how mine played out:
S - Simple Stories, striped paper
U - Uniball pen (white)
M - Metal paper clip
M - Mist (white)
E - Eyelets
R - Ranger ink, ruled paper

This is a Simple Stories kit from a few years ago called "Take a Hike". Since I use just bits and pieces of it at a time, I still have lots left and pull it out whenever I have photos that are thick with forests!

This is my last reveal with Scrap Our Stash. After three years under the amazing leadership of Brenda Ragsdale and Rochelle Spears, I have chosen to step down. It has been an incredible ride and I have learned to stretch my creativity in ways I hadn't thought of before. Thank you, Brenda and Rochelle, for letting me stay on as long as I did and for putting up with my questions and need for clarification. And thank you also to all of the extremely talented designers I have worked with along the way. I'm sure we will continue to see each other in the virtual scrap world that is the internet!

I'm going to say this one last time though...
please join us at Scrap Our Stash for the latest challenge and also the one posted on the first of the month. Upload your layout and enter for your chance to win the random monthly prize!

It's Recipe Reveal Day at The ScrapRoom!
Each designer gets to create a double page layout with an assigned Flavor of the Month kit. Mine is Echo Park, "Go.See.Explore".
This kit was the perfect fit for getting these photos scrapped from my trip to England a couple of years ago. The colors and theme worked so well and the selection of die-cuts, puffy stickers and the chipboard from the extra embellishment pack made it all come together just as I imagined!

In Full Bloom

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Time for another layout for The ScrapRoom
Today's flavor of the month is "Petal Lane" from Bo Bunny.
This kit featuring Bo-Bunny's "Petal Lane" has a very spring-y feel to it...for me at least. I went scrolling through some of my phone photos and came across these of me running along a road where the white flowers in the trees were in full bloom. I hadn't planned to use the die-cut for the title initially, but the more I worked everything together, it seemed to be the perfect fit. I added some tiny flowers from my own stash but mostly stayed within the kit. I'm pretty happy with how it all turned out and love how the blue in my photos pops off the yellow, pink and black.

This layout was inspired by sketch #142 at Sketch Savvy.

Shine On

Here comes flavor of the month reveal #2 for The ScrapRoom
This is Bella Blvd's "Make Your Mark" --- so fitting, really, for what I decided to scrap using this collection. Here I am, making my "mark" with my first half marathon a year ago.
I think I quite frankly love, Love, LOVE this collection. I love the bright colors and the bold prints and how they make me feel...much like the excitement and pride I felt before and after this race. I really enjoyed playing with the teal twine and making it a design element. I added some machine-stitching too....just because I really LOVE this page!

Life Is Good...

Friday, June 2, 2017

Hello and welcome to the first flavor of the month kit reveal for The ScrapRoom!
I'm happy to present "For the Love of Summer" from Photoplay Paper.
I always love fun, summery paper collections and this kit is no exception. The 12x12 sticker sheet included in the kit provides lots of options for embellishing and the fun prints are bright but soft at the same time, allowing your photos to take center stage!

I used The ScrapRoom's monthly sketch as inspiration for this layout. It was a nice way to combine different patterns and work in some angles, while also providing that softening effect with the circle. A fabulous sketch!

Call Me!

Hello June and hello to a new challenge at Scrap Our Stash!!
This is one of my favorite photos from my trip to England a couple of summers ago. I absolutely fell in love with these phone booths! I found these lined up along a street in Cambridge which happened to be our first day trip after arriving in country.
The challenge:

I chose the far left vertical column---the color red, a camera and wood (arrow).

Sketch inspiration came from Laura Whitaker at Scrappin' Around the Clock. You can see her sketch HERE.

I hope you're feeling inspired to join us at Scrap Our Stash. We'd love to see what you create!

Cards from Scraps - May Edition

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

I only had time for one card again this month.
This one went to my husband for his birthday.
I used some scraps from one of my FOTM kit's from The ScrapRoom. This is the Echo Park "Once Upon a Prince" Collection. From my own stash I added wood stars (Studio Calico), alpha stickers (Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon, Elle's Studio), wood-grain background paper (Simple Stories 6x6 pad) and the ruled paper in the middle (Basic Grey 6x6 pad).

This card was inspired by a sketch I found HERE at Freshly Made Sketches. This happens to be my go-to website for card sketches and inspiration.

May is flying by and soon it will be over. But, that means a whole new bunch of FOTM kits from The ScrapRoom!!
