Scrapbook Sunday: Beach Adventures

by egarcia on April 20, 2014

Hi all,

Today’s Scrapbook Sunday continues the beach theme from last week.

IMG_1039I love how well the colors in the photos go with the colors in the patterned papers.  These papers come from the Happy Days collection from HOTP.

IMG_1041For embellishments I used dazzle stickers and stamps.  Here you can see that great sun dazzle from the Summer Scrapbooking Dazzles from HOTP.  I added an orange brad from my stash to the center of it.

IMG_1043The dolphin and turtle were stamped and paper pieced with coordinating papers.  The images come from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Sea.  I love using this stamp set for beach themed scrapbooking pages. The journaling sticker comes from Lawn Fawn’s Daphne’s Closet collection.

IMG_1042Finally for the title I used the Narrators letter stickers that are part of the Daphne’s Closet collection and the dazzle stickers from the same summer dazzle collection.  The little shells are also stamps from the same Lawn Fawn stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project and that you are having a wonderful Easter Sunday.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

I Love You Card SSS April Kit

by egarcia on April 17, 2014

Hi all,

This month I haven’t had alot of time to play with the April Simon Says Stamp kit and the May kit is already out, Yikes!  So I figured I better hurry up and share something from the April kit before I receive the new one.  Here’s  a simple masculine “I love you” card.

I Love you Masculine Card

I love that woodgrain paper, which is included in the kit.  The heart and sentiment come from the included Stamp in the kit called Watts Up.  The main images in the stamp set are a light bulb and a lot of the sentiments are a play on words referencing light, bulbs, and watts.  And yet it also includes simple images like this heart.  I just loved how great it worked for a masculine love card.

I added the black enamel dots that also come in the kit as a final touch and the card was done.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Easter Wreath

by egarcia on April 15, 2014

Hi all,

With Easter just around the corner I thought I’d share one of my Easter creations.

il_570xN.574355771_75uaThe background paper comes from Rosemary & Thyme paper from Hot Off The Press.

il_570xN.574355883_g6ihThe focal image comes from Taylored Expressions’ Spring Wreath stamp set.  There’s a coordinating die for the wreath.  I used copics to color in the wreath.  For the sentiment I used the same stamp set, but I used a WPlus9 banner die to cut out the banner.  I then used pink flower dazzles for embellishments.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Scrapbook Sunday: Fun in the Sun

by egarcia on April 13, 2014

Hi all,

Sorry it’s been quiet around here this week, but this has been quite the busy week at work.  Thankfully this weekend it’s been absolutely beautiful.  Gorgeous sunny weather, perfect for today’s theme “Fun in the Sun”.

IMG_1029This was such a fun page to make.  The paper already has the sandcastle scenery on it.  I just had to add a few embellishments to continue with the beach theme.

IMG_1035I used dazzles for many of my embellishments.  I backed these with coordinating patterned paper.  The beach umbrella is a wood embellishment that I inked with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

IMG_1036These lovely shells were created using the Sea Charms Die-namics by My Favorite Things. I added the copper brads and inked the edges as well.

IMG_1034The title and the corner embellishment are also dazzles.  Quick and easy to use.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Scrapbook Sunday: Family Autumn

by egarcia on April 6, 2014

Hi all,

Today’s Scrapbook Sunday features another Fall themed page for my 2004 album.

IMG_1020Fall is my favorite season, so even though its Spring, I don’t mind getting lost in some fall colors.  The papers for this layout come from the Hot Off The Press North Country collection.  Such a versatile collection.

IMG_1024For the page title I used Fall Scrapbooking Dazzles.  These are older sets of dazzles, but they come with so many in the package that I still have so many left to use.

IMG_1027For embellishments I used more of the dazzles.  I backed them with coordinating paper and then cut around the edge of sticker.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
