Hello Everybody and thank you for joining me for another Make It Yours Monday! I have a really fun and colorful layout for you today that I was totally inspired to create after seeing a circus themed party collection at my local party store!! I knew I had to use this photo of my oldest daughters kindergarten class’s “Clowning Around” spirit day from last year.
I started, as I usually do, with a piece of American Crafts Textured White Cardstock. I splattered the background with Pretty In Pink, Heidi Ho Blue, and Pink Stilettos coloringz from Shimmerz. I marked out where my photo will be and then used my Heidi Swapp Confetti Stencil to create the stars. I used the Dreamscicle and Lemon Drop dazzlerz through the stencil. I didn’t clean the stencil between colors, allowing some of it to mix and create a new color!
While I was waiting for the background to dry, I started on my photo layers. Using scraps from stash, I used the colors from the photo to help me choose the colors for the papers. I misted a white doily from the shop with the 2 pink mists I used on the background to create a pink one and layered them with the photo cluster also.
When the background was dry, I adhered the photo cluster to the page. I outlined each of the strips the photo is on with my black pen and added my journaling, Chunky Cork Stars were the first fun embellishments I added around the page in clusters. Wood Veneer stars joined the cork, as well as some of the pretty yellow and teal sequins from the Believe In You sequin mix. I broke out some of my new colors of Nuvo drops and added some dots into the mix. I added the title “Class Clowns” to my photo and I was done! This is such a FUN and COLORFUL layout, inspired by a PLATE!!!
So, Look around this week, at colors, patterns, anything and take it to a page. Make It Yours. And come back next time to join me for another MAKE IT YOURS MONDAY!!!

Hello everyone, Mandi here with my last post. This time it is an anniversary card that features May Arts Burlap String, Tutti Frutti Dazzlerz Texture Paste, Chunky Cork Hearts, Sunny Smiles, Silver Stardust Sequin Confetti and Gold Stardust Sequins.
I thought painting have of the hearts with the Dazzlerz was a great way to add a little extra wow. When the paste is wet apply the sequins. I just sprinkled them on to the surface and pressed them in with a stick.
I love who this card looks even when it is laying sown flat. The sequins on the top and the cluster at the bottom adds a lot of drama without the bulk.
Thanks for stopping by and having me as a guest for this month.
Hello all! I’m back today with a quick Project Life layout. These photos are from the first day of school, September 2, 2014. I didn’t take many photos because I was too busy holding back those proud Mama tears many of us shed on that first day back. Sniff, sniff. To create this layout I used Everyday Eclectic by Allison Kreft for Echo Park Paper. I just love the color combos in this line!
Many of you have read about my creative method of “15 minutes to scrap” which I definitely hold myself to doing almost daily. This is a great method that works for me and my crazy busy life. I worked on this layout in very short periods of time, no longer than 15-20 minutes. I started by cutting my papers to size and arranging them in the pockets along with my photos.
During my second short scrap session, I pulled out my embellishments consisting of the Everyday Eclectic stickers Chic Tags wood veneers, Studio Calico wood veneers, enamel dots, paper now from Michael’s Craft Store etc. During my last scrap session I began to stick things down and add the finishing touches like the wood veneers & enamel dots. After a total of about 45-55 minutes, this layout was done & in our 2014 scrapbook!!
Thanks so much for spending your time with me today!! I hope you’ll give this method a try! I’d love to hear from you about scrapping 15 minutes at a time!!
See you soon and remember …..
Do something creative today!
