beach

Today, we have a fun this or that challenge at the studio challenges for you!
You have to use at least six lines of these:

polka dots            or            stripes
sequins                or            enamel dots
heart                   or            star
cardstock             or            patterned paper
flowers                or             butterflies
stencil                 or             stamps
stencil                 or             embossing
twine                   or             ribbon
blue                     or             pink
boys                    or             girls

I took my colour-inspiration from CSI:



And a sketch from Stick it down:

I used light yellow cardstock as my background. Then I smudged some gesso onto it and splattered some colors around (distress oxides: cracked pistachio and worn lipstick). The title is cut out with my cameo. Two of my photos fit perfectly into the letters. Then I handstitched around my title and traced the white letters with a black fineliner. 

From the this or that I took:
sequins, heart, cardstock, flowers, stamps, twine, pink and girls!


The stamps are from SF-stamps.

This month we have a the theme "EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU" at Lasting Memories!
Today: Throwback to your glory days

Create a layout documenting a photo and/or story from the past. You may have a story that doesn't have an accompanying photo - no problem! Find a stock photo online of something to do with the memory, or set up a staged photo to represent the story. You can dig out the archives and scrap those baby pics of yourself, too! Document an old memory you've been meaning to record.

I choosed a photo from me as a child. Here I was ca. 2 years old. I watered the flowers on our balcony in Luxemburg. 
I used black cardstock as my background and painted several metallic gilding polish colors onto it. Then I splattered some white acrylic paint around. The embellishments are made with print and cut and my silhouette cameo.

Wolkenspiel

Today I tried to realize a challenge from white with 1. It was hard for me to use only one colour! 
the color is: 




And I used the sketch from Sketches in Thyme:



And this is my layout: First I wanted to use a cutfile wreath for decoration, but then I decided to use only blue paint and white texture paste.


The clouds are cutfiles from the cut shoppe.

I love winter

It's summer here in Germany, but who feels like creating summer layouts all the time? 😉 I saw the winter challenge at off the rails scrapbooking and decided to join in. And I had so much fun in creating this layout with all the blues!



And I want to join in the challenge of use your stuff. They want to see monochromatic creations.



Thanks for stopping by!

so fun

I LOVE our new challenge at the studio challenges!  BIG SHAPE! I love using big shapes on my layouts.

Today, I wanted to let the shape be the eye catcher of my layout! I used this beautiful butterfly cutfile from Paige Taylor Evans and backed it with patterned paper. I really love how it turns out!

selfie

We have a new challenge at Lasting Memories for you, today:

LM # 402 - Love Your Selfie

Some of you may be comfortable taking selfies, others may not be, but do it anyway! We want to see your beautiful face on a layout. Please scrapbook a photo of yourself and tell a story about YOU. Journal about your hopes and dreams, a funny memory, anything that pops to mind that you believe a future scrapbook reader would LOVE to know about the caring person who created your scrapbook.


I used grey cardstock as my Background and stamped some dots, swirls, stars and little butterflies onto it. Then I coloured white cardstock with copper, apricot and brown gilding polish and cut out some butterflies with my big shot.



I stamped with distress oxides and I love how the dots turned out. 


I love the gilding polishes! They have such a great shimmer!


Thanks for stopping by!

Puh, time is flying! But I had some time to create a layout for some challenges.

                               T- turquoise
                               H - hearts
                               E - enamel dots
                               R - rhinestones

And - last but not least - I used the sketch from Sketches in Thyme #330:


And this is my layout: 


I love how the white title turned out in front of the pink and turquoise splatters!
