Father's day ~ Regatta layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comI realized after I had completed my layout that it happened to be a father’s day layout, too bad it was couldn’t have been for Mother’s day.  At least it met one of the requirements :-).  Father's Day Layout detail ~ Regatta ~ CatScrapbooking.comHere is a detail of the left page.  I used the Perfect Fit Dad C1542 to work as my tittle and accent.  I was also able to incorporate the Enchantment Fundamentals Stickers into the layout too.

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!!!

La Vie En Rose Herringbone Card

I really like the La Vie En Rose paper pack as five of the B&T papers are black and white.  So there are so many options with this paper.  I have to admit that the black and white with reds really pop.  I decided to use the black and white patterns to make a herringbone design. Here is my card.

La Vie En Rose ~ Herringbone ~ Fundamentals Assortment ~ CatScrapbooking.comThe strips are are 1/2 inch in width. I started with the polk-a-dot which is in the “middle” running left to right.  I then added polk-a-dot strips which run up and down.  Then started adding the other strips.  For the sentiment I used one of the Artistry stamp Love Right Now, but instead of cutting the oval at the recommended 1.75″ I cut it at 1.95″.

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

ABC's S ~ Zoe ~ Whimsy Fundamentals ~ Watercolors ~ CatScrapbooking.comI love combining paper packs so I decided to mix Zoe with the Whimsy Fundamental Paper Pack ~ Crystal Blue.  I am so pleased the way these papers blend together.  I am also SO in love with these new watercolor paints. Here is a close up of incorporating the watercolors into a layout. I love the fact you can change a papers color with just a brush STROKE ~ This was simple White Daisy cut title and then I added a little blue watercolor and presto a cool new look.
