A little more Fall!!!

Can you tell I'm having fun with this Elle's Studio Sycamore Lane line?  I don't think I've ever scrapped this much from a fall line.  Here are two of my kiddos (the one's who actually like to be photographed).

I have been having fun playing with Fancy Pants Corrugated Cardboard.  It adds such a cool texture to the page.  This one I did a peek-a-boo look with a cardboard strip across the back of the page.

Happy Wednesday!

Hey there!
Have you taken a recent family photo? I try to do this at least once a year. This is still on my to do list this year;)
The photo on this layout was taken last spring at a family gathering at my nephews house. I used Simple Stories Homespun for this page:

Aren't the colors amazing? I love them!
Here are some close ups:

Hope you have an amazing day!

Today... Is Full of Possibilities...

Hello and good morning...

I got sucked into some pics from 2012 and decided to scrap quite a few of them lately. I LOVE the freedom of just grabbing some photos and scrapping whatever I feel like. It's such a huge change from when I first started and would only scrap in order. I feel like I also get so much done when I pick to scrap what I want to.

I used the Fancy Pants True Friends line on my layout.

I added some mist and mixed it up with the True Friends sequins from the collection, the jar is packed!!!

And used several of the label stickers down the side of the photo:

Then added layers on layers... I couldn't pick just a few papers to use on this page, I love them all!!! And lots of stitching...

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!

I think fall MIGHT be my favorite season to scrap!  I just love the color palette, and there are just so many fun fall activities to do!

Our trip to the pumpkin patch was a blast!  There were piles and piles of pumpkins, and the kids seemed to want every single one!  After 30 minutes, I was saying, "just PICK A PUMPKIN!!"

I used some American Crafts Autumn Crisp.  I LOVE the colors in this collection...traditional fall colors mixed with a minty green, teal, and navy blue!  Plus, the embellies have some gold accents!

And I just realized that I never did my journaling on this page!  Ha!  oops....

Another item that I like to use with my fall pages is anything BURLAP.  It is the perfect fall texture!  The burlap banners on my page are some old Little Yellow Bicycle, but  we have similar ones in the store by Simple Stories for the DIY line!

Wanna find some more burlap items?  Take a look at these:

Just a Couple of Crazies

Happy Friday, friends!  Missy here.  Just popping in to share a layout I created for a challenge a few weeks ago over on our boards.  I've been trying to use up some of my Glitz stash, and this was made using the Color Me Happy collection.  I decided to really change up the black and white triangle background by covering it with gesso.  I then added random stamping, some watercolor paints and some circles.  I used gelatos to get that colored shaded look inside them.  I was just in the mood for messy and colorful, and I love how it turned out :)

I love the giant rhinestones in this collection.  I decided to add a few of my own smaller ones to add a variation of color.  I also added lots of washi tape here and there.

Here's my journaling,  more rhinestones, more tape, more gelatos...more of all of my faves!

Here's a good shot of the layering and stamping.  Sometimes it's just fun to get messy and not really have a plan!

I hope this somehow inspires you to get a little messy this weekend!  I promise, it's FUN!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

Missy :)

Sycamore Lane

Not just for fall!  I really love how many of the fall themed lines this year contain so many bright colors that they can be used for any time of year. That is true for Elle's Studio Sycamore Lane.  This line does have some leaf patterns and a few fall sayings with it but the colors are quite versatile and if you have a daughter named Autumn like I do it works even better.

This page has pictures that were taken in May from my daughter's dance recital. As I said her name is Autumn so the phrase card worked out really well.  The green and yellow coloring matched her dance costume and the background flowers perfectly.

Creative Agenda

Happy Wednesday!
Lisa here to share a layout I made using the fun Echo Park line Creative Agenda along with sketch #92 from My Scraps & More Sketch Blog. I love the colors in this collection! I used a photo of my daughter and added the favorite things right now journaling card to create a fast and easy layout about her:

I tore and stitched quite a few of the beautiful patterned papers in this collection.
 Here are a few close ups:
She is a junior in high school and is starting to plan for post high school, so this chipboard piece was perfect:

I added a flower and brad from my stash along with a few ink drops.

Hope you have a wonderful day!
