Purposeful Plastic Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month there are 11 of us highlighting the Flip Flaps, and Pocket Plus Pages.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from DEBI MCBAINS BLOG, you are on the right track!

I love our Pocket Pages Plus but I will admit I do not use them as often as I could.  This summer my son and I planned to do a bunch of hikes and a Park Tour. Rather than creating a layout of every park we went to this summer, I would just make one layout and utilize the Pocket Plus Page.  I have not printed my photos but the layout is ready.

Here is the full layout~ I used Central Park paper pack and the layout #33 from the Make it from Your Heart Vol 3. Here are the Pocket Plus pages.

I created a list on my computer of all the parks we went to and split them over two of pockets.  I will be adding 2 photos to this side. I used all the PML cards in this paper pack to fill the Pocket Plus openings.

I will be adding journaling and notes about our different adventures once the photos are printed.

The last Pocket Plus page is this one.

I found this playground image on my Silhouette so I used it with coordinating cardstock to add to the sun ray paper.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto HALEY DYER’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork highlighting the Masking!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!

Seasonal Expression 2 New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Seasonal Expression 2 New Product Blog Hop!

Today you will be hopping with the same talented consultants who bring you the Stamp of the Month blog hop.  Today we are featuring artwork which showcases our some of the new product that was just released in the new Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book.

If you are just arriving here from KIRSTEN JADES Blog, or just starting at my blog then you are on the right track ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 20 consultants participating so you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

This summer my son and I are planning on getting a hike in every week so I decided I would get a jump start on the layout and create a “bucket list” of hikes we could do.  So My plan is to take a photo or two from each hike and add it to this layout.  I will plan to add pocket pages to account for the additional photos.  As we complete a hike on this list I can just check it off!

I used the Make it from Your Heart Volume 3 to create my layout.  It is based off pattern 31 which shows you how you can utilize the pocket pages for more photos, which I intend to do.  I used the Fresh Air paper pack and both the Fresh Air Cardmaking and Fresh Air Scrapbooking stamp sets.

In this photo you can see the brown dots, these are the white dots which have been colored using a brown ShinHan Marker. I also used the New England Ivy Ribbon and the Fresh Air shapes.

The adventure title was cut using my Cricut and my Flower Market cartridge.

National Scrapbooking Month

Happy National Scrapbooking Day and Month!! I’ll be it I am a bit late today in posting this since the day is almost over. But it is never late to celebrate memory keeping!! I don’t complete layout as often as I want but crafting is what calms and de-stresses me! I wanted to share a couple of layouts I completed recently.  I have been able to use some to the paper packs I have been saving for  a while.

This layout I designed using the Beary Christmas paper pack.  I am not pleased with the color exposure but I am happy how the layout turned out.

This lay out is using the Dream Big paper pack.  It is one of my favorites as is it great for boy colors!

I hope you are celebrating by getting a few layouts completed yourself.  I am getting caught up with the photos I have printed.  So soon I will need to work on photos and getting them printed so I an take the next step and get them scrapbooked.

Happy Crafting!

The Moon

My son loved to go look out for the moon.  He would look out the big picture window in our home and look and point at the moon.  We would even take him outside to see it too.  So i wanted to be sure to document this, and created this layout.

I random stamped the background using Versamark and White Embossing powder with the Constellations Stamp Set. I  used some of the Stargazer pattern papers.

Happy Crafting!

Train Layout

Here is a layout I did recently.  I have been loving my Cricut that my Silhouette actually has been on the shelf collecting dust.  But now finally getting to a couple of the layouts I have been wanting to tackle.  I remember having downloaded a few train images so I fired up my Silhouette.  Here is my creation:

I even went through my stash of papers to find this adorable train paper.

Snowflake Layout ~ Winter Fun

Ready for another snow layout?  Here is one I did using the now retired Close to my Heart snowflake thin cut.

For this layout I used White and Sea Glass glitter paper.  It is a simple layout but I really love the way the snowflakes turned out.  I did add some white splatter to the background to look like snow.

Happy Crafting!

Snow Fun Layout

I have actually been able to get a few layouts completed over the holidays.  Here is another layout completed.

For this layout I used a paper pack I had in my stash but I do not remember the name as I have been hanging on to it for about 5 years.  I did use the CTMH retired snowflake thin cuts.

Happy Crafting!

Pumpkin Patch Layout

I have been able to take advantage of the holidays and getting some scrapbook layouts completed.  I though I would show you one I created using the Falling for You paper pack since it it about to retire.

Here are the individual pages.

Just a reminder that the Holiday Expressions idea book will be expiring on December 31st 2017 so be sure to order the items you want before they are gone.

So I posted two days ago that I found some time to scrapboook.  I tackled my son’s second birthday which was a construction party.  Here is the second layout.

For this layout I combined a couple of paper packs ~ Dreamin’ Big, Whimsy Fundamentals and Magical.

Happy Crafting!
