WSC72, CAS06 & TLC212

This 6x6 scrapbook layout was created for the Weekend Sketch Challenge (WSC72). Jenn Balcer hosted this week's sketch, and she rocked it! I absolutely LOVE this sketch.

This page came together really quickly, minus the drying time for the white circle background on the bottom and the stickles. LOL, I'm glutten for punishment or something, because I thought it would be fun to give sparkly little centers to each of the small circles. I didn't do a good job of capturing it with my photo, but the sparkle is lovely. The photo is one of my all-time favorites of my daughter (who'll be 4 in May)... Where does the time go??

I started with a 6x6 base of Bazzill's new embossed dot card stock, and then cut out the aqua layer and adhered it to the base. I thought about using my Top Note die, but the cut piece wasn't large enough, so I started rifling through my stash... I just bought this Bo Bunny Alissa paper last week, and this shape came from the tags page, all I had to do was cut it out. Sweet! :)

Then I cut a 2 1/2 x 6" piece of Basic Black card stock, and stamped the circle background repeatedly with Fresh Snow ink. While that was drying, I picked out some flowers, added the buttons, and layered my photo. Then I dotted the stickles in the circle centers and set my project aside for the night... LOL, stickles take forever! I would've used my heat gun, but my daughter was down for the count and I didn't want to wake her. To finish the page, I placed some dots around the aqua patterned paper, varying their size, adhered the Basic Black card stock to the base, added the white pom-pom trim, my photo and the flowers, as well as stamping I Love You around the top left of the picture.

I created this card for Monday's Clean & Simple Challenge (
CAS06), and the Technique Lover's Challenge (TLC212).

The Clean & Simple challenge was to pick something from the Robeez web site and use that as your inspiration. I picked the cutest pair of owl shoes... There's just something about the expression on the owl's face that makes me laugh every time I look at the shoes. I paired this challenge with the Technique Lover's Challenge, which was to create a ribbon frame. The technique is super easy and packs a punch on the right card... LOL, I think it may have been a little much on mine. :P

I started with a standard card base in Whisper White, and layered a 4 x 5 1/4" piece of the pink Bazzill Dot. I then stamped the owl and wing images onto Chocolate Chip card stock, and the eyes onto Whisper White using Stazon Brown ink. Next, I cut out a 3 x 3 1/2" piece of Sweet Always DSP, and attached it to the pink paper before cutting the slits for the ribbon pieces to go through. Once the ribbon frame was complete, I attached that layer to the card base. To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment, cut out and assembled the owl, die cut some pink leaves and gave her a teeny tiny little bow. :)

Enjoy your day!
