A Walk To Remember

Dog Days of Summer

Baby Girl

You Shine

This is another one of Jocelyn's senior pictures for her album.

I made this one using BG paper from K & Company in the Tim Coffey line, and plain white card stock.
I did some stamping on this forming a circle. I traced a circle in pencil using a template. Then , using black ink, I stamped around the edge of the circle using a small corner stamp. It's a nice effect and very easy to do.

The overlay is by Colorbok in the Nocturne line.
The flowers were punched using the Whale of a punch and the medium punch in the Retro line.

The "O" in the title is from Tim Holtz "Idea-ology" in the Time pieces theme.

The letters are by Fresh Paint.

Class of 2010

This was a very simple layout for Jocelyn's graduation album.

I used two circles in red and white,..distressed the edges and inked them for the center focal point. I used her invitation, name card and senior picture to keep it in theme.

The transparency over the picture is by Colorbok in the Nocturne line. I added a few dot swirls and viola,..done!

Nails For Breakfast,..Tacks for Snacks

This is another picture I took of Jessica for her album. I loved the attitude in her face on this one! She came up with the title herself,..after a song title!

I used all solid card stock on this one in black and gold,..her school colors. I did a lot of punching on this one as well using the Fiskars Sunburst punch.

The "J" was made using the negative piece of a chipboard punchout letter J. I sanded it,..inked it brown,..added a few gold sticker flowers and a ribbon.

On the gold paper, I used the Martha Stewart Hole punch in varied sizes to make a trail connecting flowers punched using two sizes of retro punches,...Whale of a punch and medium.

Thanks for stopping by!

Passionate Writer

This is another layout for Jessica's graduation album. The photo was taken by me for her outdoor senior pictures.

The outermost BG paper is from K & Company in the Tim Coffey line. I love the textured look of this paper. I tore and inked a piece of plain white card stock for the second layer. The inner circle was made using plain white card stock and alcohol inks. The recommended way to use these inks (by Tim Holtz) is to use photo paper, but I'm finding that plain paper works well too. Let inks dry completely before adding more and before using blending solution. Make sure to have a scrap piece of paper underneath your paper , as they bleed through. A blow dryer helps speed up the drying time.

The flowers are punched using two sizes of the retro punch, in Whale of a Punch and the other in Medium. I used a border punch to punch the flower petals,..inserting them one at a time into the punch. I used Scribbles 3D paint to make the flower centers,..(always allow time to dry before putting in an album).

The picture frame was made using the Fiskars Sunburst punch.

Thanks for the visit and come back real soon!

Mafia Wars

When I'm not busy scrapping, home away from home is on Facebook! I started playing Mafia Wars a few months ago and really like the game. The only bad thing about playing games on Facebook is that it takes a lot of my time,..time I should be spending updating my blog!

This was a very easy layout using pictures from the Mafia Wars game itself. The background paper was made using a picture of bullet holes in glass that I found on the internet. It's a great way to make paper yourself if you don't have exactly what you need!

Thanks for stopping by!
