Fabulous Friday 9/21/12

Today’s Fabulous Friday layout is fabulous because I’m finally catching up on photos from 2009.   I used a sketch from a sketch class I am taking.  This was fun to do and it was good to use up some of this old CM paper I’ve had hanging around!

Today’s Mojo Monday post shows CM’s gorgeous Reflections paper with some fun water football photos.  I also used CM’s Reflections embellishments.  Thank you for looking!

Warmhearted Wednesday 7/18/12

Pictures of a relaxing time with family will always warm my heart.  For this layout I used the very pretty CM Reflections paper, added some ABC/123 stickers, and punched out some pics.  By punching some, I was able to put 6 pics on 1 page.  Thank you for looking!

York Beach, Maine

I love this border.  I used the square maker/punch to cut the squares – 6 white 1″ squares and 6 blue 1.25″ squares.  I placed the white on the blue then cut the sun stickers in quarters  and set them in each corner of the white square.  I had a sticker strip of wavy water that I cut into 1″ lengths and placed them on the bottom of the white squares.  I cut a lighter blue strip 12″ x 2″.  And I cut a strip of the same color that I used for the larger squares 12″ by .5″.  I arranged them as the picture shows; double mounted the photos in blue and dark brown – a nice combination for the natural colored pages.

4th of July

This was a super easy layout — royal blue, and red cardstock.  I punched out a few stars on the royal blue CS; and used the tearing tool for the red.  I used a journaling box, mini ABC’s, and mini-golf memorabilia to go along with our July 4 pictures.

Summer Baby

Another example from an on-line scrapbook class.  Take strips of paper and fold back and forth to make pleats.  A pretty neat look and an awful cute toddler!

Just Relaxin’

I wanted these pictures of my nephew Erick with his Uncle John to really stand out on a page.  So I chose a black page and a bright blue designer paper and cardstock that I knew would make the pics jump out.  I freehanded the cut – I used a pencil to draw the shape, then cut with scissors.  I told myself it didn’t matter if it was the same size on both ends – just cut!  Then I used a silver pen to draw a few swirls and the dots along the blue paper.  Then I fired up my cricut for my title – this is the Making the Grade cartridge.  Thanks for looking!
