I am excited to share my next layout I created for Elizabeth Craft Designs!
This is our youngest son on the day of his prom!

To create this layout:
Step 1 - rip a piece of your favorite ECD paper about 4 -5" wide, then wet the edges and roll them
Step 2 - from the leftover sheet rip a piece for the side 7" long and 1 - 1.5" wide
Step 3 - cover your cardstock background and the 2 pieces of paper your tore with clear gesso - allow to dry then adhere like shown

Step 4 - use your favorite ECD stencil and your favorite paste randomly around your paper - I used the Pattern Stencil Pack and allow to dry or heat set
Step 5 - die cut 9 of your favorite ECD flowers, ink, shape and assemble. I used the florals 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, and 13. Here are some close ups of some of the flowers

Step 6 - Die cut and ink your favorite leaves and branches - I used the Lacy Leaves and Ferns.

 Good morning!
Laura here today to share a layout I hope to inspire you with!

I don't normally work with light or pastel colors but the 49 & Market papers and flowers inspired me.  I also wanted to keep the layout simple.

 I kept with the light blue and pink with the wonderful title piece by simply painting it with Shimmerz paints

I cut the Lace Border into three parts, painted then tucked them onto the layout

I added a flower cluster to finish the layout

 Good morning!

I have been looking through some older photos and decided to scrapbook some!  I did not scrapbook a lot of the kids school photos and I truly don't know why but I am creating with them now.  This months challenge at Creative Embellishments was a sketch challenge and it was perfect for one of those school photos!


I followed the sketch and layered the Scrapbook Customs paper and inked the edges

Keeping with the tones of the paper I inked the Falling Stars Border grey.

I also inked the Banner in grey and Title in navy

A Moment In Time - The Funkie Junkie Boutique

 Good morning!

I am hosting this challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique!

The challenge is to be inspired by the quote 'Time has a Wonderful way of showing us what really matters' and create a vintage or shabby chic project inspired by this quote and it must have a time piece like a clock, pocket watch or photo of a time piece!

Here is what I created;

 I started by tearing my top sheet or Stamperia Romantic Journal paper then covering it with clear gesso.  I then distressed the paper edges and added some pieces from a different paper under the tears

The Funkie Junkie Boutique, Stamperia

I used the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide pad in Salvaged Patina with the Layering Stencil Dot Fade.  Over that I used the Layering Stencil strips with paste


 I created a two clusters using Prima Grungy Succulents, Prima Capri Flowers, Mixed Color Sweetheart Blossom Flowers, Time Pieces and images from the paper I fussy cut

For the title I used some of my Creative Embellishments chipboard that I inked with the Distress oxide ink in Salvaged Patina, and Ground Espresso.  
I hope to see your entries in this challenge here.
