Downtown Skate Park

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 Photoplay Paper, "Freestyle".
I have two boys so when I saw this FOTM kit, I knew just what I wanted to do. My boys only went to this skate park once but fortunately for me, I had not scrapped the photos yet! I took advantage of the 4x6 and 3x4 cards putting them to use in my photo grid and even using one as a title block. I went heavy on photos and used pretty much every embellishment in the kit. This one came together super fast and easy!

Tropical Vacation

Tuesday, August 8, 2017

Hey there!
 I have Flavor of the Month #3 up from The ScrapRoom today.
This one features a collection from My Mind's Eye called "Palm Beach".
This collection made me think of Hawaii. I have yet to scrap all the photos from a trip way back in 2005 so I went there and found these two of me and my son in one of the hotel pools. I really like how this combination of colors, prints and cute embellishments turned some rather bland photos into something pretty. This kit was a lot of fun to work with.

For this layout I was inspired by an older sketch from a challenge site called Sketchy Thursdays. I pinned it long ago to my Pinterest sketches board. If you'd like to see it you can find it HERE.

The Sweet Taste of Summer

Monday, August 7, 2017

Hello again! Today I have a two page layout featuring the latest summer collection from Echo Park called "Summer Fun". It's one of the August Flavor of the Month kits from The ScrapRoom.
I love the colors in this FOTM kit. The sentiments made me think of summer berries---my favorite being blueberries. Once I knew what I wanted to do, I actually went out to the blueberry field --- I needed to pick some anyway --- and took photos for this layout! I had so much fun! Echo Park never seems to let me down with the variety of prints in their collections. This is definitely one of my favorites!

The inspiration for this layout came from a sketch I found at Page Maps. It's in the July 2017 collection of sketches which can be downloaded for personal use.

Summer Treats

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

HELLO welcome to August!
It's time for a new round of Flavor of the Month kits from The ScrapRoom. First up is this kit featuring Pink Paislee's "Summer Lights" collection.
I used this month's Jump Start Sketch created by yours truly for this layout. You can find it HERE on the TSR Blog. The embellishments in this kit led me to these photos of some ice cream treats we enjoyed while in Germany a couple of years ago. I played around with the bright pastel prints until I found something that I felt highlighted my photos. The variety in the chipboard along with the die-cuts from the embellishment kit were just perfect for my page.

Cards from Scraps - July Edition

Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Getting the most out of my kits this month---Yay!!
I had a little time to put together a couple of cards for you using some scraps from my TSR kits.

This first card features Pebbles "Girl Squad" I loved these beverage cups and wanted to use a strip of them as a focal point. Once cut, I just played around with different bits of paper and sizes until I came up with this. I cut the sentiment with my Silhouette.
 The second card proudly displays some of the embellishments from Pink Paislee's "Sweet Freedom" collection. Seriously, Other than the cardstock, all I used was the washi tape strips, the dimensional star and one phrase sticker. Easy as apple pie.
I hope you have enjoyed all the reveals this month for The ScrapRoom.  Be sure to tune into the TSR Blog for sneaks of what's to come in August. You can also find out all about the kits and how to become a subscriber by clicking on the links below the blog header. 
See ya again soon!

Free to be YOU

Hi there! Today I have an extra layout to share for The ScrapRoom.
You'll probably recognize this fotm kit from earlier in the month --- the patriotic collection from Pink Paislee, "Sweet Freedom". I had a fair amount left over so decided to use the TSR sketch and create this:

No automatic alt text available.

As you can see, my photo arrangement and paper placement is in keeping with the sketch. I did swap out the smaller strip of paper behind the photos for a strip of washi tape instead. I then used another coordinating strip of washi below the photos in place of the ribbon. I removed the tilt and used stars as my accent pieces. Once again, I went to my Silhoeutte to cut some large white stars and also my title. Sometimes I don't know what I would do without that thing!

Chillin' in the Pool

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

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 Simple Stories, "Summer Days".
I really enjoyed using this collection for these pool photos taken when we were in Hawaii. It's bright and sunny and full of lots of fun images to choose from like cameras, beach balls, pineapples, swimsuits and sunglasses among others. And the colors are so yummy, too! Initially when I printed my photos I thought, "darn...the blues are so wrong for this." But, I went with it anyway and I find that even though the blues between my photos and the papers are so different, it seems to work anyway. At least I think so. And I'm the only one that matters, right? 😉
