Layouts of the munchkins

All of these were in the August issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. Hope you enjoy!

Yes, I know I said layouts of the munchkins and this first one has nothing at all to do with the kidlets. But it's most definitely a fun one that must be shared with the world. This is the bride and groom's cakes I did for a wedding last October. Love, love, love the cannibal cake!

This next one is of my nephew on Christmas Eve morning last year. He had lost a tooth and I wanted a picture of course. So here's the conversation - Felix can I have a picture? No. Felix can I have a picture please? No. Yes, we are both stubborn. After pestering him for a bit, this was the resulting picture.

On to the smallest kidlets. Emily and Sheyla with my sister. They were 10 months old here.

This one was taken the day the twins were born. They were four weeks early but 100% healthy.

Lastly, a layout of Emily on Christmas morning. She latched onto that doll and wouldn't let go for the rest of the day.

Fall Tag

Yesterday was my day at Scrapbook News and Review to show off my take on a fall tag. Hope you enjoy!

Cut white cardstock to 6 1/4 in by 3 1/8 in. Cut assorted color carstock to 3/4 in x 3/4 in and ink around the edges. Adhere the cardstock squares to tag and set tag aside.

Cut a 2 1/2 in x 2 1/2 in piece of cardstock and cover the entire piece with a thin layer of modelling paste. Allow to dry for 2-3 minutes. Note - the modelling paste will not be completely dry so take caution when handling so as not to displace the modelling paste.

Using a mister filled with water, spritz your selected stamp and stamp firmly into the modelling paste. The water will act as a resist and allow a clean stamped image without having the modelling paste stick to the stamp. Set aside to completely dry (overnight is ideal).

Stamp sentiment and cut out.

Once the carstock piece with modelling paste is completely dry, add color with distress ink.

To add a bit of shimmer, make a small pool of water, add a bit of perfect pearls, and mix together. Paint the slurry onto the stamped piece.

Attach stamped image, sentiment, and add ribbon.

Mixed Media Items

Once again, just sharing a few more items in the July issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. This week I have a tag and a couple of ATC's.

The tag was my take on the 4th of July celebration.

And then I have a couple of ATC's. The first one shows lots of inking, stamping, and distressing and the second was simply fun and whimsical.

Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

Cards Galore

These are just a few of my favorite cards that were in the July issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.

All the stars on this one just made a fun card.

And anything with bling is a contender to be a fave!

This one is my personal favorite! I love how the background turned out and all it took was a few colors of alcohol ink and a piece of glossy cardstock.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Layouts of Tybee

Time once again to share some layouts. All of these were in the July issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. All of the layouts are from a trip to Tybee Island last year.

This one is of my niece who told me in her best grown-up impersonation "Don't take any pictures of me sleeping". What else could I do but get pictures?

This is from one evening where everyone took a walk on the beach and the kids were gathering sea shells.

Lastly, this was from the wedding we attended that weekend. Big thanks to Liz for letting me use her daughter's pictures in my layout. Isn't she adorable? My fave pic is the top one with her just staring at the cake so completely mesmerized.

Hope you've enjoyed these layouts and they bring you some inspiration for your own creations!
