Hangin' out with aunt karla

this is a sweet little layout of my daughter playing with my older sister and some bubbles. this sister doesn't have any kids so i think she enjoys getting to kick back and play when the nieces & nephews come around.

workspace wednesday: 07.25.12

you'd think will all the digital pages ive been doing that my workspace would be cleaner!! lol! well lets see starting on the left and moving to the right...
my blue cricut is holding my smash book, and i see some baby bottle parts? abby hasn't had a bottle in a very long time so I'm not sure why those are there? I've been making some Mini milk carton treat boxes, so I've got some stampin' up! stamps stacked up there. in the back between my ink tower and the tool turn around is just a bunch of random stuff. then there is some fabric (i was wrapping around the milk cartons) plus some other scraps. so not alot going on on the desk this week. I think its about time to clean it all off . . . maybe next week? or the next? we will see!

playtime: digital scrapbook page

here is a 2 page spread that i made in photoshop. once again, i used a mixture of supplies. i will try to keep track of what supplies i use next time. i used this sketch from nuts about sketches.
i rotated one of the 4x6's to fit my pictures better. And i changed the shape of the element under the 4x6's, the sketch shows a circle but i'm really diggin' this top note shape. I also liked that it was close to the same color as the slide. (which I'm thinking about painting one of these days!) I kept the little cluster of elements in the bottom right corner, and used some washi tape to finish it off. I LOVE the scrabble tiles for titles. I changed the colors of the "r", "&" and "a", they were a bronze color but that was too dark. My color pallet came from their clothes, lime, pink and navy.

giggles and grins

this was a fun little layout, maybe because the pictures were so stinkin' cute! I always like pages where ya mix up color prints with black and white prints, but for some reason i hardly ever do it. why is that? anyway i thought id do it with this page and im so glad i did, i think it really add some intrest to the page. i used a bunch of different "paper" from different kits, just looking for some that went well with abby's shirt. one of the last things i added was the big top note shape under the prints, and boy howdy do i LOVE that!!! i was inspired by a sketch from Nuts About Sketches, its so nice to be able to pull up your images and go to Nuts about Sketches and find a layout and jump right in. without a sketch i seem to sit and stare at the images and not know where to start, but with a sketch, you have a plan and you can get started and get pages done. and to me thats the point of scrapbooking, to get your pictures off your camera and/or computer and on a page in your scrapbook for everyone to enjoy!

hair cut

ive been doing lots of digital pages lately, its just so much easier when you have little ones running around. so reagan got a big girl hair cut, she was a bit nervous at first, she thought her hair would turn brown like Rapunzel. but now she loves her new do!
i thought i would have a hard time finding a sketch for 14 images, but it was really easy. i found this on Nuts About Sketches. the sketch was for 15 images but i had one (the 1st on on the 3rd row) that was vertical and i wanted to keep the whole image because abby was "riding" on the chair as leah would spin reagan around. so i just had that one image take up 2 spaces. ive been really busy this summer and the past few week especially, so i stuck really close to the sketch. i used a variety of digital supplies, changing some of the colors to match my colors better.

Workspace Wednesday: 07/11/12

Ok I realized that I didn't post my workspace picture for last week! So here it is.. Im working on alot of things, first of all starting on the left, I have my color coach out trying to come up with some new color combos to play with, right now I'm loving Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point (both from Stampin' Up!) and a lime. I don't have a good Lime color ink :( I was using Green Galore from Stampin' Up! but that pad is now dry (sniff sniff) and they don't have that color anymore. So I gotta find a new one! Next on the desk is the GYPSY! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my gypsy, I can't do anything without it! the Rolodex is a project I'm working on using THIS stamp set from Paper Trey Ink to help me keep all thoughts in one place. I'm really loving it, when I'm working on a project and need a little something I just flip through whatever section I'm needing help with and I find what I need! Its just simply great! All the little white hearts you see are from this die from Stampin' Up!. The big notebook is out because I'm gonna enter a design team call!!! I've never done that before but I've wanted to. So I thought I'd give it a try, I gotta get a couple more pictures printed before I can submit it, I'm pretty excited about it all!! So that's my desk for last week. I'm working on different stuff this week so things will look different for the post tomorrow!
