Layout for Sketch Challenge at Scrap with V

I made this layout for the January sketch challenge at Scrap with V. I flipped the sketch on it's side. This is of my sister and me when we were toddlers. I framed the layout and gave it to my sister for a Christmas present! I used several different Studio Calico kits to make this! TFL!

Some layouts from a recent class

These are few of the layouts that I made for a journaling class that I helped teach at Inspired to The bottom layout was featured on the October Afternoon blog a few days ago!! In a couple of days, I will post the technique I used for the reverse applique technique that I used for the stars on the middle layout!! It's a fun technique that I learned from Davinie Fiero at Studio Calico!! TFL!!

More Crate Paper Snow Day fun with Maya Road too!

I made this cute banner using the Maya Road chipboard stocking album and Christmas words and Crate Paper Snow Day patterned papers and chipboard elements! I just love the colors and how versatile the Snow day line is! And my favorite technique of using the Maya Road chipboard albums is to make them into a banner. I had one leftover chipboard stocking so I made it into a gift tag!

I used the Echo Park Wintertime line for this and some Maya Road chipboard letters which I Maya misted and covered with Glossy Accents! TFL!

Fun with Echo Park Wintertime!!

I made these really cute Snowman Soup toppers and Tussie Mussie using the Echo Park line Wintertime kit. The line includes a couple of pieces of paper that have 4 different 6x6 designs on each piece that are perfect for the Snowman Soup toppers! The pieces of paper are called "damask" and "frost" and are on the backsides. You can see them just peeking out behind the front design!

I simply cut the pieces of paper into the 4 squares and folded them in half. I decorated the front halves of the toppers and then attached them to the top of the plastic baggie that has the Snowman Soup "recipe".

I also used the sticker sheet and the journal tags patterned paper for some accents on my topper!

Here's the tutorial on how I made the Tussie Mussie! I used a piece of the Wintertime paper and some of the stickers to accent it!

I love how Echo Park coordinates everything together and you get such a versatile, huge selection to choose from! And at a great price too!! Thanks so much for looking!! :)

But my how this year is flying by!! I can't believe 2010 is almost over! I think it's because I've been very busy the last half of the year. But it's been a great year so far ;)! These are a couple of layouts that I did for some design team work. They are both of my older two kids - I got some great pictures of them lat week! The top layout was for using October Afternoon and some Studio Calico veneer wood frames. I made the flower using a technique that I learned from Stacey at Inspired to Scrap! It's my son and his fiancee - another engagement picture! The bottom layout is for my lss - Scrapbook Corner in Little Rock. All My Minds Eye and Prima - but I got the little birdie at Anthropologie (it's a paperclip!). TFL!!
