My Creative Sketches Round 3!

Hello there! I hope you're all enjoying a happy and restful Thanksgiving Day weekend. If you're home and looking for some crafty inspiration, head over to My Creative Sketches and take part on the third and final round of our Big Fall Sketch contest. Here's sketch #3...

... and here's my take on the sketch,

I used gorgeous Prima papers and embellishments to create this page. I was able to coordinate older papers from the Reflections collection with the new vines and the little resin bird to give this layout all the dimension I love to see in my pages.

I really do hope you join us over at My Creative Sketches, we're having so much fun with the sketches and the grand prize winner will get a 3 month subscription to the always gorgeous Limited Edition kit. And one more thing, take a look at this round's prize pack, can you say YUMMY?!

I leave you with a few photos I snapped of my kids before Thanksgiving dinner. I can't believe how much they're growing and how much joy they bring to my life. I am so thankful to be their mother!

Thanks for your visit today, have a wonderful week!

Beautiful Dreamer

Hi everyone! For my Glitz Design assignment today I thought I'd go over the top girly and shabby with the Beautiful Dreamer collection. Here's what a created...

For this layout, I did lots of heavy distressing and a bit of layering but the design is pretty simple. I love the combination of dusty pink and grey, so pretty!

And a few close-ups,

For my second layout, I decided to use an old die cut paper to create a shaped page. I also did some masking along with lots of layering and fussy cutting.

Take a closer look,

Thanks so much for joining me today. Have a very glitzy day!!!!!

More MCS Projects

Hey there! I'm back to share the rest of my projects with My Creative Scrapbook's Limited Edition kit. This kit was full of pretty, femenine things such as Glitz Beautiful Dreamer papers, Petaloo flowers, vintage lace and Prima resin pieces.

For my first LO, I created a whimsical page by cutting up one of the Glitz Whatnots and using it as my title/journaling.

I cut up a smaller photo to give the appearance that Emily was about to cross the resin bridge. These embellishments are just so much fun!

The next page came together super quickly thanks to the clear frame included in the kit. I just added a bunch of flowers along with some stitching and a bit of layering.

Here's another one of those Prima resin pieces tucked behing the flowers.

I applied Diamond Stickles on this butterfly to enhance it a little bit.

My third page is full of all things femenine like the Dusty Attic dress form, pretty flowers and pearls. 

I gathered the paper here to hide some lace behind the top layer of paper. There's also a touch of crackle paint on the roses.

I also painted the dress form with Crackle Paint in Tattered Rose.

For my last page with this kit, I used a few sheets of My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 2 papers, so cute and fun!

I added some texture and interest with a Prima mask and Golden Molding Paste.

Here's a look at the beautiful LE kit.

Thanks again for your visit. I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and leaving sweet comments. Have a wonderful, scrappy rest of the week!

November Reveal at MCS

Hello friends! It's time for another reveal over at My Creative Scrapbook. Today I'm sharing with you my projects created with November's Main kit which features the Welcome Home collection by Bo Bunny with some My Mind's Eye papers thrown in for good measure.

My first layout is titled 'You Are My Home'. It includes a photo taken recently of my husband and kids while apple picking. I did lots of masking here with lots of lace included in the kit.

My next page's 'Happiness is Homemade'. I did more masking here and I punched a few butterflies and trims using my Martha Stewart punches.

I love Liquid Pearls and I used it here in baby blue to enhance the butterflies.

The following LO was created with the MME papers included in the kit which I love! The prints here are so beautiful so I mixed them all together.

Lastly, here's another Bo Bunny page featuring the Dusty Attic frame included in the kit which I painted with brown and blue acrylic and rubbed some Stickles on it.

Here's a picture of the beautiful Main kit.

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit today. If you want more inspiration, swing by MCS DT gallery to see the other gorgeous creations made by our talented girls.
