Remix: Layout #2

Hi Everyone! I'm finally back with my Remix layout. Quick catch up for newbies...Remix: From Card to Page is a feature on my blog where I design a card and then use that as inspiration for a scrapbook layout. Check out the Remix #2 card HERE.

For this Remix I used the apple image (from Paper Smooches) as my inspiration. It all started with those 3 apples on the bottom of the page and then I built everything around it.

Since I only had one picture for this layout I decided to create two areas for journaling. The first journaling block is the quick story of my son's first day of preschool. The second spot includes lots of facts I thought would be fun to remember as the years go by. (details were blurred out for privacy)

The apples were paper pieced, inked, colored (stems and leaf). The star was stamped from Papertrey Ink's Banner Builder set. I also carried over the banner theme from my inspiration card and added several stamps banners to the layout (also from Banner Builder).

Finally, the title that brought my layout to a screeeeeeching halt. :) It was only after receiving my Creating Keepsakes magazine that I realized I was TOTALLY over thinking it. I found some chipboard letters in my stash and added a layered heart (using PTI dies) stamped with my favorite Woodgrain Hero Arts stamp.

I would love to hear your feedback on Remix #2! Have a great day!

All of the fabulous little details. I am envious! :)
What a great idea to take a card and "remix" it into a scrap page.

Ellen Hutson & Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! I'm SO excited for today's blog hop! This collaboration set is amazing and I can't wait to see how all of the talented designers used it today and how YOU will use it! To create my card I started by stamping, die cutting and coloring several of the images from Peek a Boo Pals Camp Wanna Stamp (love that name!). It's available HERE with stamps and dies or HERE with just stamps.  Next, I blended and splashed ink on a piece of cardstock to create the background. Then, I stamped the lightening bugs and added their glow, along with coloring their wings white. TIP: I used a Q-Tip to add just a small amount of Distress Oxide to make the bugs glow.  Finally, I added the sentiment and adhered everything to a card base. This set is amazing and it's PACKED full of images! There are still more images that I can't wait to stamp. Check out the set... Next up is Heather Campbell . She is SO talented, I'm sure you'll love what she created. Finally, it wou

Mama Elephant: October Anniversary Stampede!

It's Mama Elephant Birthday Stampede time!  This is so awesome, right? I'm so excited you've joined me from Stephanie's blog! Today I'm a sharing a lot of stamping goodness! Now that I'm counting, my card uses 4 new Mama Elephant stamp sets ! This card all started with the sentiment. My kids are always buzzing around the house singing and one of their favorite is Everything is Awesome (Lego Movie anyone?). :) I started with a faint pencil line to create AWESOME from the new Block Party Letters . I colored them in with Copics and then did some creative masking and stamping from Happy Everything to add the beginning of the sentiment. Next I stamped the penguin and hat (from the new Artic Penguins ), colored them and die cut them for a perfect cut. The soft, grey striped background was created using the new Boutique Borders . All stamps and dies can be purchased NOW at the Mama Elephant store HERE . Next up? The very talented JJ Bolton !
