Trendy Tuesday/My girl

 

Good morning everyone!!! I hope your having an amazing 4th of July with your friends and family!! Sarah here this morning with my 1st trendy Tuesday post and as you  have probably heard this weeks theme is emojis!!!

I love emojis, they are just so cute! And my kids know what they are and love to draw them and the oder ones sending me different ones on their phones lol.

I chose to use the Crate paper line, Cute girl for my layout this week. I love all the girly little things you can do with this collection, but with the way I did this layout there wasn’t a lot of room for embellishing.

I went with a quite large emoji for my layout because I knew I wanted to make it itself a shaker pocket. I used one of the cut-files offered from SpiegleMomScraps this month, This is just one of the emojis that there are in the cut-file,But my emoji is how I started my page, other then having my photo already picked out, lol.

  

In my stash I have a bunch of stuff but I have like 3 boxes of clear sheets that were for over head projectors, I dont even know if they use those anymore, lol, but I have a bunch of them. So I cut my emoji out on my Silhouette and placed 2 behind the outer part and started sewing it on my sewing machine. I left a place open big enough for me to pour my Gotta Love Emojis sequin pack is and then finished sewing it up. I placed it on my page where I wanted it to the left because in the picture my daughter was looking in from the right.

After my big smiling emoji was down, I added a few strips of paper to the bottom of my layout and then went to layering papers behind my photo. I put my photo down and pulled out my embellishment pack, along with some of the sticker sheets and started to play a little. I have always loved that little doll from this collection and I thought this was a great layout to use it on! So I added her to the right side of my photo and then layered a few puffy flower stickers and some little hearts. I popped my title under the picture. Then I decided to add a few little banner pieces  and a few hearts to the top left of my layout and a few little word stickers  and more little hearts to the bottom left and was done.

I hope you enjoyed the layout I made today, I loved playing with the emojis and I hope you play along too!! Happy 4th to everyone again!!

Fuse It Fun Day- First Day Sillies

Hey everyone! I’m back with my Fuse tool this week! And in keeping with the 90’s theme, I bring you “gettin’ corky wit it”!

Yep, that was a terrible Will Smith reference! Haha! I realized recently that I scrapped my son’s first day of school photos, but not the “outtakes”! I really wanted to capture how silly he was being! I started with a naked tree cut file, and created leaves with cork embellishments. The tree on the right uses the Corky Cumulus embellies as leaf clusters. The tree on the left uses the Cork Confetti Hearts as the leaves! I contemplated painting the cork, but I went with the natural look because it reminded me more of Fall.

After I had the trees figured out I wanted to make a little school house. I created this cut file from free clip art. Once I layered each patterned paper, I fused little pockets of Gold Stardust Sequins for each of the windows on the back of the school house. The stardust sequins are probably my most favorite because they are so versatile and can be used on just about every project! For this layout I just love how they make the school shine!

Some Cloudy Days Felties finished off this little scene perfectly!

I absolutely love how this came out, it is quirky (and corky) and fun, really capturing my son’s personality! I hope you enjoyed it too!

Be sure to save some money when you stop by the scrappy store, and I would love to see how you “get corky wit it!” 🙂

Sketch it out Saturday/Love you

 

Good morning everyone!! I hope your weekend is going good, we started out with some bad weather and LOTS of rain! But it looks way better today, so thats a plus!

Sarah here this morning to share with you a sketch from Pagemaps 

that I used for my layout and our theme this month is the 80’s and 90’s, Now with this layout I used a color pallet to go with the theme. I remember when I was a kid, we always had this furniture that was tan, brown, yellow and little pops of other colors. So I found this collection by Crate paper in my stash and and thought that it matched perfectly with the sequin set, Just beachin it

Now when it came to the sketch I changed a few things, but not much. I had this picture of my hubby and our youngest and I loved the way the photo and frame were set up in the sketch that I loved, I know my picture was a bit bigger and the way the frame when on the picture it pulled more focus to that part and I loved that.

I I wanted a decorative circle where there was the pie type one on the layout, but I wanted it to be a bit more soft, so I added this cutfile. I backed some of the spaces on the cut file and left the center open because I knew I wanted to add the pretty sequins to the center.

I added more embellishments then the sketch showed, I wanted more flowers and butterflies so I layered them under the frame and on the frame, it added just a little more color and dimension.

I didn’t want a solid boarder around the side, So I took all of my scraps and added a tabs in here and there and a cork butterfly, placed them where I wanted around the side and then sewed them down. I went back and added more of the cute sequins around the layout and that was it.

Id love to see what you create with this sketch! And if youd like a bit of a discount when you go get you some goodies from Spieglemom make sure to use this code.

 

Scrappy Friday – Le Grand Bleu

Hello,

Welcome here for a new Scrappy Friday!!!

Here is my page, looking back on the 80’s – 90’s for the last time….  I must confess that one film really symbolizes these years for me, I don’t really know if you American people have ever heard of it…. It’s “Le grand Bleu” (The Big Blue) and it was a huge success here in France, it really symbolizes our generation.

To decorate my page, I used the Hey Kiddo sequins, as well as the Cork Chevrons and some Shooting Cork Stars.

Here are some details :

See you next week for my next Scrappy Friday!

Love from France,

Christine

Hee Haw Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day, my crafty friends! Typically I would be sharing a Fuse It Fun Day project with you, but this week I skipped the Fuse and went straight for the glue!

I made a layout all about my Father in law for our theme this month- 80’s and 90’s! This is a throw back to the Hee Haw show, anyone a fan? I really wanted my kids to know the stories their grandpa has to share-and he has SO many fun stories. For years he played with Roy Clark and was a member of the Hee Haw band. My husband has fond memories of watching his dad on TV, how cool is that?

I really wanted that silly donkey from the Hee Haw logo on this layout, which is actually where I spent the majority of my time. After that it was a few musical note die cuts and some fun layers behind the photos. This layout came together pretty quickly, but my favorite part are the new Black Tie Event sequins and cork Chevy Chevrons as accents. I dispersed the sequins throughout the music, as if they were notes themselves. If sequins could sing, I bet they would sound beautiful!! The Chevy Chevrons worked perfectly as corner accents and gave the layout more of the rustic feel I was going for!

I will get that Fuse back out next week, but I hope you enjoyed this Father’s Day layout and those fantastic new sequins! Pop by the store to grab some of your own!

Sketch it out Saturday / Seriously?!

Good morning everyone!!

Sarah here this morning to share another layout with you! I started this layout with this months theme in mind and a fun sketch too! I had already went threw and pulled a bunch of old pics of me an my sister from back when we were kids and our faces in this picture was perfect. When we were kids, Seriously was more then just a word it was a whole expression! lol It covered so much!

This layout comes from DesignerDigitals.com

I started this layout with Basic Greys B-side collection, when I knew what collection I was using I pulled out all my pretty sequins and started matching them up to my papers. I grabbed 4 different packs and combined them, Pocket full of posies, Jaded hearts, Black tie event and Fairy Garden. I mixed them all together and sewed a plastic sheet into a shaker pocket to go behind all my layers. I layered a bunch of the papers from the collection like in the sketch.

Once I got all the layers where I wanted them, I started to stick them down.

Instead of adding ribbon or lace, because that’s what it looks like in the sketch to me, I used a boarder punch. Before I stuck the shaker pocket and all my layers down, I traced out the area behind where I wanted my picture and layers to go and came in with some Shimmerz Texturez, The tide that binds and used a old gift card and pulled it down and away from where I was putting the photo cluster.

Finishing off my layout I added some stitching, I know that wasn’t in the sketch but I love to sew on my layouts, so I did. Then I added little strips of paper around the layout like on the sketch and then I just had to go back in and add some more sequins, just cause I love them!

Id love to see you play along with this sketch!

Scrappy Friday – Friends

Hello Creatives,

Here I am with a layout for my Scrappy Friday. This time, thinking back about the 80’s-90’s, I decided to get my inspiration from my favorite TV series at that time, the one I was so delighted to watch in English, as I was studying English at University in order to become a teacher….

What an amazing way to learn a foreign language and a foreign culture!

Just like in the series, we’re 6 friends and I must confess each time we meet, we feel like we’re as old as we were in the nineties….

I like the way the Spiegelmomscraps Corky Cumulus and Cloudy Days Felties give some lightness to my page…. And they totally sum up the atmosphere when the 6 of us meet!

And what about you, what was your favorite series at that time?

See you next week for my next Scrappy Friday!

Love from France,

Christine
