Just Beachy!

Ok friends! here is my project for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge! The theme this week is SUMMER!! as you can see, we had gone to the beach a few months back, and there is nothing that says "summer" more than the beach! I used My Digital Studio to create this scrapbook page. I wanted to go simple with the feel so that the pictures really caught your attention. I gave it the look of sand and a little bit of swirl to mimic the waves coming up on the sand. I put the cute little flip-flops in a color that matches the sunset picture, placed the two pictures at the top of the page, used simple letters and really it was so easy to put together. I just had to get the placement right because i am kind of a stickler for that haha! Here it is! you can totally do this! so get scrappin!

A Tisket A Tasket...

She's so cute holding her Easter Basket!
It's a Sketch Challenge this week at Stampin' Royalty!

I used the sketch to create a digital scrapbook page of my daughter from this past Easter. She looked so pretty in her dress (and sneakers! haha!) I was able to create this page in an afternoon, and the best part about it was i was trying to find a matching color for the background and was having trouble, so i was able to use the picker feature and "grab" a color from the picture itself to use as a main background color (the dark brown) and it all worked out perfectly! I love my MDS!!

Better Late Than Never!

here is the card for Stampin' Royalty's Inspiration challenge from last week. I was a little slow getting this posted due to the fact i was having the time of my life at CONVENTION!!!!!! I cannot begin to tell you how much fun it is!! Well, maybe i will try to tell you in a post within the next few days : )

So I made this card using Cajun Craze, Sahara Sand, and Bashful Blue cardstock, I used the Scalloped Square punch to punch the flower petals and then used my sponge daubers to create the color variation in the centers. I punched the little flowery centers using the Boho Blossoms punch, then added pearls and dots using my Basic Black marker. I stamped the sentiment with the Sincere Salutations set in Cajun Craze ink, punched it out with the large oval punch, added some sponging around the edges and finished it off with some pearls!

Forever Friendship

I love the color combination for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge! Pacific Point, Pear Pizazz, and Pink Pirouette! To be honest, i had a little trouble coming up with a card (seems to be the norm with me lately!) but after trying a few different things, i was able to come up with this card! I used the above mentioned colors of cardstock, the Season of Friendship and Aviary stamp sets, the Boho Blossoms punch, and those wonderful little pearls!

After stamping the tree in Pear Pizazz, I cut it out (yes, it was a little tedious, but it didn't take long!) then i cut the 'grass' pieces by hand, punched out the flowers in pink, then used markers to color that ADORABLE little owl then cut him out. I stamped the sentiment on a scratch piece of Whisper White, then cut one side like a 'banner'. I put dimensionals on the tree, owl, sentiment banner, and the top grass piece, then added stitching with markers.

Super Simple Monday

Ok! I know it has been forever, but Super Simple Monday has returned! This card is actually a swap that i made for CONVENTION!!!! I am super excited about convention which is in one week!!! I can't wait!
So if you get one of these as a swap, it's from me! Be sure to say hi!
For this one I used the leftover piece from the top note die (great way to use scraps!) and stamped the birdcage in black, then the little birdies from the Aviary set in Elegant Eggplant, it is hard to see in the photo, but there is a little rhinestone on the bottom of the birdcage for some sparkle! This card is actually pretty easy to make! I will have another card made with the same layout on one of my upcoming posts!
