Have a Scrappy Day!

This week i am going back to my "roots" and posting a Scrapbook page!
This one was made for this week's Stampin' Royalty Challenge.

If you break down the page, it is really pretty easy. I just used a sheet of Patterned Paper with an existing image on it, cut it down slightly and put it on a mat or Always Artichoke, placed my photos, took some chipboard letters and covered them with scraps of coordinating patterned paper,, sponged the edges of them for consistency, place a few strategic buttons, and added my own writing

And as a last added detail to make the page unique, i doodled around the edge and put glitter on the existing image.

So now it's your turn! make a scrapbook page and be sure to upload it over at Stampin' Royalty so we can see too!!

Need a Little Christmas?

I made this card for this week's Stampin' Royalty Challenge, which is a sketch challenge! I just love all things Christmas! So of course, i had to make a sparkly fun Christmas card!

A bit of advice...i tried cutting out the glitter snowflakes and had a pretty rough time of it. I had to use a strip of extra cardstock over it to really get the blades to cut, and i also had to put the glitter side facing AWAY from the blades so that the thick paper backing would cut better. even then , i still had a little trouble with it, so i would say maybe test one small portion first until you can get them to cut easier. or you can just cut out a snowflake using regular paper and put glitter on it : )

anyways, here is what i used!
Cardstock: Pear Pizazz, Whisper White
Patterned Paper : Pear Pizazz
Stamps: Jolliest Time of the Year
Sliver Glitter Paper, Rhinestones, Subtles buttons

I'm Back!!

I promise, i didn't fall off the face of the earth!
I have been away because we just bought our very first house!! It was kind of a very big transition from our last place to this one, and i have been super duper busy!! and I really wanted to create something for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge, so i challenged myself to finish a card before 11 pm on Tuesday night, which had given me about an hour and a half to finish one, but i did it!! Here is the result! there are one or two things i would change if i had more time, but i am pretty happy with it! It looks so much better in person, but i just didn't have time to adjust the picture enough to reflect that...
So here is what i used:
Cardstock-Crumb Cake, Bashful Blue, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink- Cherry Cobbler, White Craft, Basic Black
Stamps - Dasher, All Holidays, an old one i can't remember the name of, but you can substitute Bella Toile
Crumb Cake button
