Deep Freeze Scrapping!

Since the temps have been waaay below zero, and there is no way I want to leave my house (other than work), I get to knock out a bunch of vacation pictures!!

As always, I get my inspiration from sketches!!

Here is one for Sketch N Scrap:
I used a stitching stamp on the background.

Scrapbook 365 sketch:  and a few big sequins

Artful Delight:  and a paint dauber on the background.  

Inspired Blueprints:

WOOHOO!!  I just might be able to finish this album before Spring!

Have a magical day!!!

A Few Characters...

With all the kids' sports activities taking up most of my time, I had to force myself to make time for me and my scrapping.  I tend to make myself so tired thinking of everything that we need to do for the kids.  
So I mentally scheduled my day and here is what I was able to accomplish.   :)

Using Sketchabilities #107 - some chipboard gears and lots of ink, paint and mists...

Sketches in Thyme - with lots of doodling for the background...

The first from the New Colorful Creations blog - and a bit of fuzzy fibers...

And the latest sketch from Stuck?! - a couple of BIG brads with some rub ons...

Have a magical day!!!

Mojo still working...

OH happy day off again!!  

This color scheme was inspired by this board from Artastic:

This title is for the challenge at Scrap it With a Song - The Black Eyed Peas - I Gotta Feeling:

And the inspirational photo from Creative Embellishments:

And then a sketch challenge from Frosted Designs:

Inspired this page...I used some paint on the corrugated paper and mist on the background..

Still this space!!

Have a magical day!!!


While I was still motivated to work on my Disney album, I saw this fun inspirational board from Show Us Your Stuff.

The color combo in the upper left corner just "screamed" Monsters!

This was a lot of fun and took a while.  Everytime I looked in the drawer, I found something else to use.  I made my own deco squares with pics printed off the internet.  I added a little tag I made myself  with some fun papers, fibers and I even used my fastenator!  
My favorite part is the fuzzy fibers I found!  They added just the right touch.

Have a magical day!!

The benefits of being snowed in...

...and the temps being 15 below zero...I can really take a chunk out of my pictures!!  And lots of sketch inspiration!!!

From Child's Play - the Monopoly Challenge.  I used 2 x 2 squares of patterned paper to match the properties on a Monopoly board.

DCWV - Sketch challenge - I used the Habitat Stack:

Lasting Memories sketch challenge.  Glad I stocked up on these pretty flowers from Michael's:

From Scrapping Everyday Miracles - I was able to use 4 pictures!!  WOOHOO!!

And from Sketches with a Twist - I used the sketch and the additional challenge of using handmade flowers.  I used a couple of different flower punches, scrunched them up a bit and added buttons. 

And now the sun is getting ready to go down...This day went by quickly.  With temps predicted to be below zero tomorrow...I just might have more time to play.

Have a magical day!!!

Pals with Pinocchio

Here again with a very challenging page for Paper Secrets:

We were to use the sketch and supplies to represent the word P-A-R-T-Y.

Here is what I came up with:

P = Pinocchio
A = Alphas
R = Red
T = Trims and a Tag
Y = Yellow

Have a magical day!!

Back to work!

I know, I know,...I totally slacked off on this vacation album.  But we had an incredibly busy year, and then the holidays were on us before we knew it.

So back to the album...I am so grateful for sketch inspiration blogs!!  

This page was made using the sketch from Stuck on U Sketches:

And sketch #259 from Creative Scrappers:

And then a great sketch from Scrapology: The twist was to add a badge or button.  I created a little badge/button with the Epiphany Crafts tools.  

Since I am snowed in today and freezing, I'm off to knock out more pages!  Stayed tuned!

Have a magical day!!
