'smile' Layout using challenge and lots of Creative Embellishment chipboards

Hi... today I am sharing a super fun, bright birthday layout using lots of my Creative Embellishments chipboard accents. I also used the  Scrap Our Stash July sketch challenge .

Supply List
Paper: Cosmo Cricket, cardstock
Chipboards: Creative Embellishments infinite circle frame, starry tree, Smile-happy word set
Accents: Momenta
Ink: Tim Holtz ranger, sew easy ink roller
Other: paint, copic markers, washi tape, ephemera

I used:
F- flower
I- ink -sew easy ink roller
R- rhinestones in kritters ears, round chipboard
E- ephemera
W- washi tape
O- oval shape
R- red
K- Kritter accent
S- stars & smile chipboard

Using the sketch I roughly did the paper layers of the layout..... had to piece it to make it work from the paper collection.

I messed up the outer ink roller border so just added more to make it work.

Used lots of chipboard.. some copic coloured, some painted white first and then copic coloured over it (yellow).

Super cute flower and kritter accents.

Sunny bright title 'smile' with an added star chipboard.

Finished it off with a washi tape corner.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

July Stuck Sketches and my Paper House products

Hi everyone... sure hope your having a great weekend. I know I am ... I have time to craft this weekend.... and I have a great Stuck sketch challenge today to share using my Paper House Products.
This actually is our wedding photo from 1970 and we will be celebrating our 47th Anniversary in August this year.

Supply List:
Paper: Paper House Noir ColorWays
Accents: Paper House Noir Accent Pack
Other: cardstock, liquid pearls, ribbon, Prima Flowers, twine, washi tape

I started this page by using the layers of the sketch to start... and pulled lots of accents from the pack.

I used these Prima flowers... and on the side is some gold washi tape/

In the close ups you can view some of the layers. I like to go light, dark ad then some gold black. It gives it texture and depth when you change it up.

I used a fun cluster of accents in this section. I tied off the double keys with bow tied twine.

Small washi tape corner with some paper and star accent. When this page was done I didn't like the white plain background so I used a plastic glove and used some silver and gold liquid pearls for a soft subtle glitter.

This last close up shows the use of more journal tags/cards and accents from the Collection.

I used the acetate sheet on top of the paper background. I didn't need to use the central section so I cut it out to use in a layer forward on the page.(see below)

I added the great beach print paper and then added the cut out piece of acetate.

In the  closeups you can see all the great products and accents that make this page perfect.
Great canvas accents, fun alpha stickers, borders and a great die cut piece.

This showcases more amazing borders, shaped dies and more stickers.

I added a matt to the circular photo and under it is more amazing coral die shape accents.
