March Design Team Layouts

Our March sponsor at Scrap City is Charlie's Scrappin' Store.

She sent us some Coredinates card stock and flowers to work with. The Coredinates is awesome to distress and emboss, it strong enough to take crumpling, inking, tearing and embossing with ease.

My Rock, My Daddy

I loved this picture of my Daddy (isn't he cute!) by the pool at my brother's house on Labor Day weekend. (Yes I'm that far behind!) He is always there for me no matter what and I wanted to pay tribute to him with a layout. This page was designed for the technique challenge at Scrap City, the challenge was to sew on a layout. I machine stitched the scalloped circle to the background paper and I hand sewed the buttons to the layout.

King of the Grill

My LOAD for today! This is not for any challenge or team work, just a layout for Greg. Everyone loves his cooking especially from the grill.

LOAD 2/4

It's not too late to get in on the fun at LOAD with Lain. I did it last year and was able to complete a layout a day, this is a great way to get caught up. These photos are from Labor Day, so that shows how far behind I am.

No Mistake

There are no mistakes in scrapbooking! I laid out my paper for this layout and one of the cats chewed off part of the heart, so I cut that part off and repositioned the heart. I didn't like the way the stamped Christmas turn out so I used Stickles to cover it. So while this may not be the layout I had in mind when I started it turned out fine!

Scrap Your Crap's challenge this month is to use Red and Pink in a layout. The patterned paper was left over from a Fiskars rak, I think it's Heidi Grace.

ATC Swap at Scrap City

We had an ATC swap at Scrap City. I had bought these stickers in a cute little gift shop in Portland and knew they would be perfect for an ATC. The sticker look vintage, but have current day sayings. I painted, stamped, embossing, blinged and stickled the cards, these were so fun to make! The pics aren't great because the weather was so yucky I had to take them inside,

Last January I did the "Layout A Day" challenge with Lain at Scrap Happy. She is having again next month. It's a great way to catch up on your scrapping and the prize is a good incentive. Check out her blog and see how to register if you're up for the challenge!

This was like doing 24 layouts at once and it's why Ashley and Debbie didn't get their Christmas gifts until mid-Jan! This year I am going to try and do a Calendar layout each month.

Scrap City DT Jan. Cards

I don't make a lot of cards usually just when I need one, I will whip one up in a hurry. This month at Scrap City it's all about cards so I had to make 5. I really enjoyed taking my time on the these and now I will have a few ready when I need them.
