Halloween 2011 Layout

I wanted to share this LO with you that I made using Pencil Lines Sketch 257 over at the Pencil Lines Blog. Who remembers Yvonne Craig as Batgirl on the old Batman TV Show and Helen Slater as Supergirl!? My husband and I do! And, thanks for admitting if you do, too. It’s so fun to share this love with our girls…the stuff that we watched when we were kids. They especially love watching old episodes of the Batman TV Show (Adam West and Burt Ward…hahaha). This was a great sketch to work with. I was able to combine the awesomeness of both Super Heroines on the same page. How could I resist scrapbooking this fave photo!?

Monster Bash Layout

I wanted to share this LO with you that I made using Pencil Lines Sketch 256 over at the Pencil Lines Blog. Caitie had a Halloween Costume Party at school called the Monster Bash. Caitie dressed up as Batgirl for Halloween this year and Payton dressed up as Supergirl. They enjoyed games, candy, prizes, popcorn, arts & crafts, a cake walk, and of course hanging out with friends. It was a really fun party! I took this photo of Caitie after the Monster Bash and I LOVE it! It’s fun. The girls cannot wait to go trick or treating.

I added a ticket that I kept from the Monster Bash.

I love the ghost lollipop that Caitie made at the Bash (its in her hands in this LO photo). I just had to make my own for this page. So, here is a close-up of the ghost lollipop embellishment I made. I had fun making this and it was really easy. I used the Grey Doily Washi Tape by Hambly on the lollipop stick.

At the Farm Layout

I wanted to share this LO with you that I made using Pencil Lines Sketch 254 over at the Pencil Lines Blog. I turned this sketch on its side so I can fit it to this horizontal photo of Payton at the pumpkin farm. She was so happy looking at the chickens and rooster and I called her name and Click! It happened so fast. I LOVE this photo of her.

Whoofie Cushion Layout

I wanted to share this LO with you that I made using Pencil Lines Sketch 255 over at the Pencil Lines Blog. Payton received an early Halloween present and just loves playing with the whoopie cushion. I took some pics of her playing with it on a recent rainy day. I just had to make a page out of this, because her calling it a “whoofie” cushion is just hilarious!

Sketch 255 is provided by Catherine Brancieq:

Sk255

Here is the Layout I created inspired by the Sketch:

I started this LO by first spray inking it using 6 different Glimmer Mists by Tattered Angels:  Fully Purple, Graphite (gray-black), Key Lime Pie (light green), Starfish (pink), Tiger Lily (orange), and Yellow Daisy. I just used a box that came with a 2peas order for the inking. I also placed a 3″ circle punched piece on my LO so I knew where to place my finished pinwheel. Just For Fun (not to be crude), the spray ink was playfully done to be the “pssst” of the whoopie cushion. tee hee.

Next, I added my pictures. I chose to add 3 pics instead of the 2 on the sketch to tell this story. I also added my pinwheel.

To make this pinwheel:  I used the High Tea Patterned Paper by Hambly Screen Prints. I just love the gray, black vines, and shine on this paper. It went perfectly with my halloween theme. I wanted my pinwheel to be about 3 inches wide.

1.  I cut the paper into 2 – 1.5 x 12″ strips using my Fiskars paper trimmer.

2.  I scored the paper strips using my Martha Stewart Scoring Board. I folded them up and attached the ends to each other using Mini Glue Dots.

3.  I shaped it into a circle and placed it onto a 2.5″ Gluber.

I LOVE the way it looks. It’s SO pretty! I, then, added the Hambly Clear Sticker to the white cardstock, cut around the decorated edges of the sticker, placed it onto a 2″ Gluber, and pressed it onto the pinwheel.

Then, I added my title using the American Crafts Thickers. These Maple letters from the Nightfall Collection had such a fun font and halloween color. No…that’s not a typo. Payton calls a “whoopie” cushion a “whoofie” cushion. I love it…I laughed so hard when I first heard her say it. I knew I had to do this page.

I made Washi Tape Letters for this LO. I LOVE the color and design of this Pink Doily Washi Tape by Hambly Screen Prints! Payton LOVES pink! I wanted her laughter on this page.

It was so easy to make. Here’s how I made the “Ha Ha Ha” on my LO:  I started with a 1″ square punch and punched out six squares out of the white cardstock.

The 3/4″ wide size of this Pink Doily Washi Tape was the perfect size for these letters. I covered the squares with strips of the tape.

I placed it Washi Tape-side down onto the Sizzix letter die and used my Sizzix Big Shot to cut up all the letters I needed.

How Pretty are these letters!?

I added all the embellishments and final touches to the page. I wanted to share another fun fact about this LO. Conversation with my goofball hubby after he saw this page:

CHRIS:  “It’s nice…it would be funny if you could add some stink lines to it.”

ME:  “Hmmmmmm. That would be funny. You just gave me an idea!”

Again, Just For Fun (not to be crude)…these stitches were the last added touch to this LO. My “Pretty Version” of some stink lines. LOL! Funny, huh!? Great Idea…Thanks, Chris!

Pretty Computer Font Time! I used Arial Narrow (Bold) for the journaling on this LO. I printed off my journaling on the white cardstock and added the Hambly Clear Sticker right over it. I LOVE it! It looks so nice accented with more Washi Tape (Grey Doily) by Hambly and the button with the pretty High Tea Patterned Paper by Hambly.  BTW, I used the Circles Large Edger Punch by EK Success for the High Tea circles in the buttons. It was a perfect size for the largest buttons in that Nightfall Buttons Variety Pack by American Crafts.

Here’s a better close-up shot of my pinwheel.

I feel so very flattered…I don’t think I’ve ever been scraplifted before. My “Whoofie Cushion” Layout was scraplifted and you could view their very pretty version of it:

I Can Let You Grow Layout

I wanted to share my submission with you for the Pencil Lines Design Team try-out.

I used the following Design Team Search Sketch:

Sketch06

Here is the Layout I created inspired by the Sketch:

I Can Let You Grow LO

Some more scrap therapy for me…to prepare me for Payton to go off to school next year. My Gosh Time Flies! I did a little fall photo shoot with her before we picked-up Caitie from school. I took these pictures on the bridge next to the school. I love that we are just minutes from it and I enjoy this walk with both of them everyday! You can see it’s tough to get this kid to sit still. LOL! I got one amazing shot of her and then off she ran…silly girl. I love her so much. On her first day of school, there will be tears…but, I can let her go off into the world and grow-up. I will be ready then.

I Can Let You Grow LO Close-Up

My favorite trees are the Willow Trees.  So, I used that as inspiration to create a tree embellishment that reflects Payton’s free spirit and just overall personality. I just love the way this tree turned out! Of course, when you sketch it out on paper it looks great. But, getting your idea out onto your LO is totally another thing. Thank goodness my idea worked out…I believe it is a tree that reflects Payton. I love the whimsy of the leaves, the colors, the tree bark, and the owl (taken from the owl on Payton’s shirt…my favorite shirt on her). I attached the Owl Clear Sticker by Hambly Screen Prints to the Bright White cardstock by The Paper Company. I attached the Tree Clear Sticker by Hambly Screen Prints to the Autumn Cider Patterned Paper by American Crafts. Of course, I used the Circle Foam Tabs to give them that 3D effect among the leaves.

My journaling reflects exactly the way I feel at this moment. Pretty Computer Font Time! I used Another Typewriter (downloaded off the internet) for my journaling on this LO. I used the Autumn Cider Patterned Paper again for my journaling tag. I used my Black Zig Writer pen to add brackets to the paper.

I Can Let You Grow LO Close-Up

I combined the patterned papers and embellishments from the Nightfall and Amy Tangerine Lines from American Crafts. LOVE IT!
