Winner!- My Scraps and More Sketch #115

Hello! I am back today to share a layout I completed this weekend. I started with this sketch from My Scraps and More:

I entered a scrapbook layout in the Minnesota State Fair for the first time in 2011 and, not only did I win my division, I won first overall! This is a page featuring my layout and ribbons. Yes, a scrapbook page about a scrapbook page. :)
I started with some gold paint and pink glimmer mist and added some splatters to my page. Then I layered some old patterned paper scraps under my photos. I was also inspired by the 10/1 Throwback Thursday challenge in the My Scraps and More forums. The challenge was to use old paper and at least one of something you have been hoarding.  I have quite a few flowers, so I pulled those out and added them to my page. I also have a pack of Little Yellow Bicycle transparency pieces that have been just sitting in my stash. The colors went well with this layout, so I used a few of those on my page as well. Some gold washi tape and enamel dots finished off my page.

Happy Birthday- CAS(E) this Sketch #143

Hello all! I am back today to share a card I made for my sister-in-law whose birthday is today! I was inspired by the sketch this week at CAS(E) this Sketch:

I really embraced the Clean and Simple style for this card at used just stamps to create this card. The flowers were all stamped with different colored inks. I sprayed the stamp with water before stamping the big flowers to give them a watercolor look. I wanted to make the word "happy" stand out and tie in the white card base, so I stamped the happy stamp on white cardstock and then heat embossed it. I added it to my card front using foam adhesive for some dimension. "Birthday" was stamped and heat embossed.

Celebrate 30- Fusion

Hello! I have a card to share that I created for a friend. We celebrated her 30th birthday today! I was inspired by the current challenge at Fusion:

The colors in the inspiration piece were beautiful, so I was really inspired by them. I stamped and heat embossed the pattern on the bottom half of the card and then added a strip of washi tape to separate the two areas of the card. For the gold "30", I cut the numbers out using my Cricut and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I used my Cricut and "Sure Cuts a Lot" to cut the leaves from a couple of scraps of cardstock and attached them with foam adhesive.  I added a bit of twine and a button to bring a bit more of the peach color.
