OUAS and CSI Team Up!

As many of you know, OUAS is teaming up with CSI to bring you four gorgeous color palettes and sketches and lots of inspiration. I was lucky to work with the palette and sketch below for the fourth week.

I'll admit I was a little intimidated with the idea of creating based on color but it was actually liberating! I began by looking through my stash and pulled a bunch of Webster's Pages goodies I thought would work with the palette and the page came together rather quickly!

I think this is the first laout I make of myself and I thought it was time, especially because of the theme, lessons learned, or as CSI calls it, testimony. Here's a few close-ups...

I hope you's inspired to create! This challenge is due by October 7th, I encourage you to stop by OUAS and CSI and play along!

Beautiful Neutrals with Glitz Design

Hello there! I'm back to share my projects of the month and my first one is a layout using the beautiful Happy Travels collection. I pulled the neutral colors in this collection to scrap a photo of my kids waiting at the airport terminal during a recent vacation. I was so proud at how well behaved they were, those wait times can be really difficult!

I layered pattern paper and doilies to add depth to my page. I also tucked in small crochet doilies thoughout my page along with stickers and transparencies from the collection. Here's a closer look...

I have been having fun lately creating off-the-page projects lately and decided to make a home decor item for my second project. Again, using neutral colors in the French Kiss and Pretty In Pink collections, I made this wall hanging of our family name. I thought it would look great in our entryway!

I used five pieces of heavy weight chipboard as a base and jumprings to conect them together. The colors were just perfect and go really well with the rest of my house. To keep my wall hanging from getting to frilly for a home decor piece, I kept things simple by repeating the design in each panel. This project was hard to photograph while hanging on the wall so I took it outside to give you a close-up of each panel...

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you found some inspiration :) Enjoy the rest of the week!
