Hi everyone! I am back to share another quick layout with you all today that I have based on this month’s Prima Marketing BAP Challenge and I have also incorporated the Scrapbooking From Scratch May Quote Challenge  also. Click here to view the Prima May Challenge Blog Post and click here to visit the Scrapbooking From Scratch Gallery to see all this month’s challenges.

Here is the Prima BAP Sketch for the month of May and the Quote over at SFS is “Girlfriends are the sisters we pick out for ourselves”

So here is my take on the sketch and the quote. I actually mucked up the quote a little whoops but it still works. I have used the fabulous Prima Marketing Firefly Collection papers.

To add more texture to the background, I have added some Gesso using the Prima Donna Downey Random Dots Stencil and I smudged it a little so I decided to scrape the circles down the page to add a more smeared effect. There is never any mistakes in art LOL. When this was dry, I have dripped some Chalkboard Mists & Lindys Stamp Gang Mists down the page and then stamped some random areas with a Tim Holtz Texture Stamp using some Turquoise Perfect Pearls Powder.

I have used a bunch of Prima Shabby Resin, Flowers, Bling & Alpha for this layout as well as some Prima Donna Downey Canvas Script Flags that I have sprayed with some Chalkboard mists.

I have then added some Gesso to the edges of the Flags, and threaded through some Twine to add the banner over my layout.  I then grabbed some American Crafts Thickers to spell out Amigos and stuck them down to my Ranger Craft Sheet so I could easily sand them back a tad before adhering to my flags using some Ranger Glossy Accents.

I just love how this layout has turned out. Some random smearing of Gesso onto some of the Prima Alpha and a Pink Paislee Mistable Arrow added then my layout was complete. As you can see I have twisted and added to the original sketch a little (the banner was added) .

My adhesives by choice are always Helmar including Scrap Dots, 450 Glue & others.

Well that is it from me today, thanks so much for reading and until next time, happy scrapping!

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well. I have an exciting announcement to share on Friday eeekk so very exciting!

Today I wanted to share a quick layout with you all using the fabulous Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic range along with my Silhouette Cameo Machine.

out for publication - Page 001

How cute is this photo of my girls? I know you have seen this photo a lot lately because I chose to use it a lot in Mothers Day gift making etc. Finally I get to scrap a layout for me using this fab photo and I have printed it this time 5×7 inches.

It’s fun to sometimes work with really large photos but it also really easy to go over the top so I wanted to keep the layout simple with some clever layering and fabulous pops of colour.

I have first trimmed my white cardstock and rounded the corners, I have then cut from the white cardstock, half of the title using my Silhouette Cameo Machine. I also have cut a fabulous Wavy Chevron Design with my Cameo using the black Heidi Swapp Paper.

I just cannot get enough of banners LOL. I think they are one trend that has been around forever and will never get old. Well I will always love them!

Final touches were some doodling and gorgeous little Studio Calico Wood Veneer Stars. The white cardstock had splatters of Tattered Angels Yellow Chalkboard Mist and I chose to place the stars on these little bursts of colour.

Heidi Swapp Buzz Word, Sequin Arrow along with a Charms Creations Heavenly Heart and the layout was complete.

Well that is it from me today, be sure to check in on Friday with my big announcement sooo exciting.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
