Hey hey my crafty peeps!
It's my turn to reveal my projects for Scrapbook Nerd! We'll be changing it up coming in June and you'll get weekly inspiration instead of once a month!
This month I got to play with the October Afternoon Snapshots collection. I absolutely LOVE it! I still have plans for one more layout that I'll be making tonight, so stay tuned for that one!
My first layout I actually used the fab new sketch from Creative Scrappers for! I saw this sketch on my scrappy friend Ashley Horton's blog, and I knew I wanted to use it! I think this might be the first time I've done a grid on an angle like this, but I must say, I think I'm kind of loving it!
I also used the We R Memory Keepers Albums Made Easy Die Cut pack for this layout. I love the gorgeous designs on the squares and the die cuts too! I can't wait to use the bigger 4x4 designs in my Project Life album (whenever I can manage to get back to it! lol)
The stitching on this tag was super easy to do because they already come with holes! You can leave them blank and not stitch, or you can add some textural interest to your page with some twine or embroidery floss!
Here's the sketch. Isn't it fun?!
My second layout came together really quickly. I love this paper from OA, because I literally just cut them apart and arranged them on my paper! I used a few triangles and some more of those fabulous little die cut papers from the WRMK pack and a few embellishments here and there and it there you have it! I always like to finish my layouts off with a few splashes of mist too!
Linden is hilarious and I totally had to document this! Every single time Chris wears a hoodie, Linden has to have the string in his mouth! He doesn't even do anything with it once it's in his mouth, he just lets it hang there! It cracks me up!
For my last layout, I broke open my new Heidi Swapp Stencil Minis! I absolutely LOVE how these work! It's so cool that they come with 3x4 white paper too, so you don't have to cut up a big 12x12 piece to get your stencil on! ;) The paper is super durable too, which is awesome when you're playing with mists and paints and all that fun stuff that likes to warp paper!
The title was cut with my Cameo, and funny (kinda) story...the cut file was last week's freebie, and I had it in my cart, but when I went to check out, they were up for scheduled maintenance, and then by the time I came back to it, it wasn't free anymore! lol But I loved it so much I had to get it anyway, and I knew it would be perfect for these pictures of my "Little Ham" Caleb :) I have a ton of pictures of him making faces like this! Every time I pull out the camera, he has to pull a face! lol He's pretty hilarious! =
Well that's all for today! There are links below for everything I used on these layouts! Be sure to check out Scrapbook Nerd! They have the lowest prices of any Canadian Online Scrapbook store, and if you find a cheaper Canadian store, they'll match it! They really are awesome!
