Stampers with Attitude Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  The blogger in front of me is Melinda Everitt.   The Stampers with an Attitude are all excited to show you a little Art with an Attitude, so here we go…..

In March CTMH put out a wonderful video showing how to create a mini album.  I have been wanting to try one myself,  so I finally embarked on it.  The album I am creating is a little gift for my son’s godparents.   What I love about this album is the fact you can use all different papers.   For this album I used papers from the following collections Dream Pop, Later Sk8r, Avonlea, Stella, Dotty for you, and Footloose along with cardstock.  Although I wanted to show off the entire album I have only selected a few photos.

Mini Album- Gavin CoverFor the cover I used mostly the Later Sk8r paper with Outdoor denim.  I used the dimensional banners with blue epoxy bubbles.

For this page you can see the great textured cardstock from the Dream Pop paper along wit one of the prints.   I love the Zoology stamp set and use it for my accents.

Gavin mini album pg4

For this page I used the adorable Bugs & Hugs stamp set.
Gavin mini album pg5

This page used retired papers but the blended so well with the color I was using for this album. It is paper form Stella and Footloose.  I also use the Footloose WOTG stamp set.Gavin mini album pg6

I did use solid cardstock on a couple of the pages to break up the patterns. On this layout I used Pear to complement the Later Sk8r paper. I used the Look Who’s stamp set.Gavin Mini album pg7

For the center of the album I liked the concept of creating a envelope, I will use this to include additional journaling.Gavin mini album pg9I really enjoyed creating this album and I hope you will try one too.  It was really easy to create and so much fun to mix up all the different pattern papers from retired and current papers.

Mother’s Day Card

Last year I did not pay attention to the fact Mother’s day was right around the corner so I was left scrambling to create my Mother’s day cards.  This year I am a head of the game!!  If you have noticed I have been exploring the different types of special fold cards there are out there.  I picked the cascading card to design for my Mother’s day card as it could resemble a bouquet of flowers.  This card could easily be converted to any occaion card just by changing the sentiment.  You will see in a future post that I changed the sentiment for my May workshop.

mothers day card

For this card I used Kraft cardstock for the base and then used on of my boarder punches to give it the unique detail.  I then cut Lagoon cardstock to fit on each of the panels.  Using the Perfect fit – Mom stamp set I stamped the sentiment in Gypsy.  I used my Silhouette to cut out the flowers and leaves that match up with the flowers and leaves from the Girls Rock stamp set. I then used Gypsy, Buttercup, Pear, Smoothie and Lagoon inks to stamp the flowers.  For one of the smaller flowers I used the Happy Thoughts and for the Mom stamp insert in the larger flower I used the Perfect Fit – Mom stamp set. I also used the April SOTM’s adorable bird and stamped it using a two tone effect.

Once I photographed this card I realized it really needed something else so I went back and added Bitty Opaques and Sparkles.  Notice the difference?  it really completed the card.

CTMH – Roxybond Scrappers Team Blog Hop – Chantilly

Welcome to Roxybond Scrappers Team Blog Hop!!

Roxybonds Scrappers

We are featuring some of the new product lines from the Spring/Summer 2013 catalog.  This month we are showcasing the Chantilly paper line.

If you have come from Jen’s blog then you are on the right path. Your next stop with be Tess’s Blog.  This paper pack is so bright and colorful!  It has been fun and easy to create with this paper pack.  For this blog hop I created a layout and some cards.

Finished page kit 2 - Version 2

For this layout I used the Chantilly paper pack, Twilight, Sweat Leaf, Buttercup, Cotton Candy and Daisy White Cardstock.  I also used the Pink Glitter Gems and the Chantilly WOTG stamp set.  The inks I used were Twilight, Buttercup and Cotton Candy.

Happy thoughts Card 4 - Version 2

For this card I used my Silhouette to actually cut the shape of the leafs and flower – no more fussy cutting here!!!  I used the Happy Thoughts stamp set with Cotton Candy and Sweet leaf inks.  I then went back over the flower with Stickles to give the glitter look. I also used and embossing folder to emboss the Cotton Candy cardstock. I am becoming addicted (just like everything else with paper crafts)  to Washi tape  which is what I used to in the middle of the card.

Chantilly Iris Fold card 1 - Version 2

Iris fold cards are so much fun and such a neat way to bring color to a design.  I used my Silhouette to cut the dragonfly then used Chantilly paper strips along with another pink scrap I had to make the wings. The sentiment was stamped in Cotton Candy using For Every Occasion stamp set.

Chantilly Happy Birthday 4 - Version 3

I have to admit Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration and ever scrap-lift. I was always told that scrap-lifting is the best form of flattery.  Well I took my inspiration from a card that was made by Christine Adams.  I used Pear, Twighlight, Cotton Candy and Daisy White Cardstock.  To cut the Cotton Candy scalloped circles, I used a Spellbinders die.  I used my 1 1/4″ circle punch for the circles and then used the Chantilly WOTG and Perfect Fit- Birthday stamp sets.

I hope you enjoyed these creations and if you need to pick you any supplies you can find most of them on here on my CTMH website. Now hop on over to Tess blog and check out her wonderful creations!!

Later Sk8r Layout

As I mentioned on the Roxybond Scrappers blog hop, I really love the Later Sk8r paper pack and all the accessories.  It may be due to the fact I have a little boy and love to scrapbook him.  I designed the following layout which was inspired by the layout shown in the Spring/Summer 2013 catalog on page 47.  I love all the gears and the way the paper was cut on the layout.  I really had a fun time creating this layout and was very happy with the way it turned out.

Gavin's Later Sk8r layout 7 - Version 2

I used my Silhouette to cut the paper, title and all the gears.  I was even able to design the gears so they would fit with the In Gear stamp set. For this project I used the following CTMH product:

  • Later Sk8r Paper Pack (X7167B)
  • Slate Card Stock
  • Outdoor Denim Card Stock
  • Lagoon Card Stock
  • Pear Card Stock
