Balloon Animals ~ Sock Monkey

I fell in love with this AWESOME card designed by Artsy Margi ~ Check it out HERE.  She saw the adorable monkey on the Balloon Animals as a sock monkey which is so clever.  So of course I wanted to give it a try.  Here is my take ~

Balloon Animals Monkey ~ Share the Love ~ Sock Monkey ~ CatScrapbooking.comI combined the two exclusive stamp sets which are only available this month ~ Balloon Animals S1602 and Share the Love CC1060 .  I followed Artsy Margi in using Chocolate ink and Desert Sands to create the sock monkey.  I stamped two monkeys one in each color.  I then cut the Desert Sands and pieced it on the Chocolate.
Supplies used:

Since the Balloon Animals and Share the Love stamp sets are only available this month, be sure to order yours before they are gone!!!

My Layout Challenge #5

Are you ready to see another layout??  I have not been as on top of getting layouts done this past two weeks as I was finishing up some Studio J photos.  I am so bummed that Studio J will be going away the end of April or when the current supply of photo paper are depleted.  I use Studio J to print my photos for scrapbooking.  So I will have a large pile of photos to scrapbook!! So I should be able to maintain my goal.  Speaking of here is my layout number #5

Fundamentals Enchantment ~ Cat Tales ~  4 photo layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comI thought the big ball of yarn was sort of humorous since we were at a large cat zoo.

Monster Birthday Cards

I saw a birthday card posted on the Make it from Your Heart blog that I have been wanting to duplicate.  So I went to look for it on my Pinterest boards as this is where I will save things I want to go back too.  Well when I found it I realized it was from last January  ~ has it really taken me almost a year to create this card.  Well I guess better late than never?  Here is the original card and here are my versions.

Monster Birthday ~ Boy Birthday ~ Stamping techniques Kissing & Rock-n-Roll ~ CatScrapbooking.com Monster Birthday ~ Boy Birthday card ~ Stamping Techniques Kissing & Rock-n-Roll ~ CatScrapbooking.comThe top card uses Topiary, Sapphire and Saffron fundamental papers.  The bottom card I used Fern, and Peacock.  I used two stamping techniques to create these card.  The first was the Rock-n Roll which I used for the Happy Birthday.  I inked it in Saffron and then rolled it in Sapphire for the top card and Peacock for the bottom card.   The second technique I used is the Kissing Technique.  You can see in both cards the green balloon has a circle pattern.  Well after inking the balloon in green I touched it to a clean stamp and it removed some of the ink resulting in a pattern, then I stamped it on the card.

Everything ABC’s Blog Hop ~ Y

Welcome to the Everything ABC Blog Hop!

ABC's Blog HopFor this hop we will be featuring the letter “Y”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “Y” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from LINDA NORMAN’S Blog then you are in the right place.   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 Linda’s blog HERE.

The letter “Y” is a difficult letter but it is easier than some others.  We thought it would be great to introduce our son to sports and when a friend reached out saying her son would be playing and she would be coaching, we thought that would be great.  Well our expectaioan of 3-5 year old basket ball was not at all what I expected.  But the YMCA does a great job of just promoting sportsmanship and team building.  On my layout I also used some YARN to do the stitching and the bows. Then I used some of last YEARS fundamental papers.

ABC's Y ~ Basketball Layout ~ Fundamentals ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere is a closer look at each side.

ABC's Y ~ Basketball Layout Left ~ Fundamentals ~ CatScrapbooking.comI love the way I was able to incorporate so many photos on this page.  This truly showed how unfocused 4 year old are when it comes to basketball :-).

ABC's Y ~ Basketball Layout Right ~ Fundamentals ~ CatScrapbooking.comI love that this page highlights my son actually making a basket and then how happy he was with himself after.  I used the Basketball image from Artbooking, I then welded 4 together in Design Space to make the border.  I then repeated the process with the basketballs after hiding the contour of the grooves of the basketball.  To get the Awesome stamp multicolors I did a bit of making.

ABC's Y ~ Basketball layout detail ~ Fundamentals ~ CatScrapbooking.comTo create the two tone stamping for this one I fussy cut the Sunset pieces and adhered them over the Outdoor Denim.

Here is a full list of items used:

  • Paper packs ~ Scardey Cat (retired), Taste of Summer (retired), Enchantment Fundamental Paper pack
  • Cardstock ~ White Daisy, Indian Corn Blue (retired) and Outdoor Denim (retired)
  • Inks ~ Indian Corn Blue (retired), Outdoor Denim (retired) and Sunset
  • Stamp Set ~Team Player D1652
  • Cricut ~ Artbooking
  • Yarn ~ my stash
