Most days it's hard to get just one layout completed, but somehow I managed to get two done yesterday!! All 3 kids actually took pretty long naps, so I did one then and then finished up a second once they were in bed for the night. And I have noticed that I am a little faster than I used to be. I try not to over think things or wonder what would so and so have done on this page. I just stick it down where ever I like it and go from there. :)
The first layout is for the July/August Issue Challenge #5 at Club CK. The challenge was to use paper clips, which was a great challenge because there are so many fun shaped paper clips out there right now.
I've had those little butterfly paper clips in my stash for a while. I bought them at Hobby Lobby and knew they would be cute on a page, but just didn't have the opportunity to use them yet. This was a perfect challenge, to break them out! I used Sketch #219 from Creative Scrappers and it took me a little while to get on track, but once I got going things went quickly.
Products Used: Patterned Paper & Stickers: Simple Stories; Cardstock: Bazzill; Paper Clips: Hobby Lobby; Buttons: Blumenthal Lansing; Pearls: Kaisercraft; Thickers: Amy Tangerine (AC); Punch: Marvy
The second layout is for Case File No. 31 at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. I really do love playing along with these challenges and I have been on the Watch List for the past 3 weeks, so that is pretty exciting news!! The color scheme this week, was a bright and happy one and I knew the Amy Tan Sketchbook collection would be a perfect match.
I did some of my favorite things on this page...fussy cutting, die cut title, and misting/masking. This page is packed full of American Crafts goodies...from Amy Tan papers...to Thickers...to Studio Calico wood veneers, Mister Huey's Spray Mist and Mister Huey's Circle Graph mask. It makes a page go so much quicker when you can use products that coordinate!!
Here is what I used from the Case File:
Evidence - Wood, Repetition, and Circles
Testimony - Adding something to the top of your journaling (the fussy cut flower with the button center)
Thanks for stopping by today and I will have two more posts to share later this week. On Thursday, I will have a post for Get It Scrapped and on Friday, we will have a new Fabulous Friday challenge posted at Frosted Designs!
