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!

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!
