I’m Back! SU! awaits!

Hello Everyone!

Happy New Year to you!! Ours started off pretty good and I am all rested and ready for action. We spent our holidays at home. There is lots of family on my husband’s side here, so we certainly were not alone!  I missed my family, though!

I spent many an evening scrapbooking my sister’s Yellowstone album to get it done. Not in time for Christmas, but it’s done and she was patient! I’ll be doing posts over the next week of pages that I created and never made it to the computer to post. I even did challenges, that have since closed, but I will still share my inspiration for the pages.

Here are a few of the pages that were not related to a challenge, so I kept them fairly consistent so that they would flow. I used the Triple Banner Punch A LOT!! It really worked with these pages. The fact that I could do the three different sizes of paper strips was a bonus! I’m a little burnt out on banners, but I’ll be starting my own Yellowstone album soon, so I am sure I will be using it again! Handiest punch ever!!

I used the Glamper Greetings (which is still available!), Under the Stars, and Happy Camper stamp sets throughout this album as well! They were perfect, of course. I used them on other pages and cards in previous posts.

I am pleased with the simplicity of the album and the flow of the pages! I trust she likes it! 8×8 is not a size I am used to working with, so it challenged me at times. Overall, I enjoyed working on it and am happy with the outcome.

SU! S’mores!

Hello! Happy Monday!

Worked on some scrapbook pages for my sister’s Yellowstone gift album this weekend! Used sketches from some challenge sites. It was very fun and motivating!

Again, I covered faces with vellum because they don’t want their full faces online. Have to honor that. You can still see what I have done! I had not gotten my Outdoor/Camping papers out of storage yet, so I went with brighter colors from the Project Life travel set from SU! and some stamps from the Under the Stars retired set.

So, here is the sketch +3 that I used for this scrapbook page. I had to pick 1 item from each column at the bottom of the sketch to add to my sketch. I chose Glitz, Hashtag, and Indigo.

Here is my version of this sketch:

I used some Wink of Stella on the fire, and the marshmallows. Although it doesn’t show very well on this picture, darn it. I Used an Indigo glitter marker to draw the border around the red cardstock and the white polka dot banner. And, I used the hashtag with my S’mores title. I really like the way it turned out! May have to do the same page in my own album!

Enjoy!

Blessings, June

 

PS. As I finished this page and was going to sleep, it occurred to me that I had seen another challenge earlier called 3 of a Kind…and there are 3 s’mores on this page…so I will enter it for that as well. Fancy that!

SU! and Scrapbooking!

Good Afternoon!

It’s quite chilly here today, so a perfect time to get indoor things done!

This summer my son and I went with my sister, her husband, and grandson to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons for a week! We were “Glamping” it up! That was a new experience for my son and I who camp!

I am making gift albums for her grandson and her for Christmas. Here are a couple pages I have finished so far in his album. It is an old 5×7 Creative Memories album that I still had in my stash. There are only 10 pages, so I am having to really stretch myself in getting in as much as possible and still make it look nice and keeping it simple. I have also challenged myself to use my stamps! I am using mainly 2 retired stamp sets called Under the Stars and Happy Camper.

Since there are other folks in the pictures and they would not want their pictures on the internet, I have laid some vellum over their faces. Mine, I left uncovered. You can still see that I have pictures there, just not clear pictures of the people. I have to honor family!

Anyway, I will share more as I get more pages done.

Happy crafting!

Blessings, June

Patriotic Birthday Card

Good Morning!

Yesterday I had to whip up a birthday card for the neighbor boy across the street that wants to be President some day! He was having a Patriotic Birthday Party! My son was invited. We gave him 2 books on President Lincoln, one of his favorite Presidents. His cake was a decorated as the American flag, so in keeping with that theme, I made this card for him. He turned 8.

I used a number of stamps from different sets. I started with Real Red cardstock for the base and Whisper White to stamp on. I used the Dapper Denim for the blue, and Real Red for the swash. The swash came from Work of Art, the star came from an old camping set called Under the Stars that I had on my counter, since I am working on a camping gift album. The ‘For You’ came from a Paper Pumpkin set, August or September of this year. I distressed the Whisper White cardstock with the Dapper Denim using a dauber.

I just kept it simple and stayed within the theme of his party. I like how it came out!
