Fab Friday 87

I had fun participating in the Fab Friday Challenge this week.

Fab Friday Logos-087

For the card, I went with the bright colors from Cherry on Top DSP and a sweet (retired) sentiment.

I started with a base of Watermelon Wonder and then layered it with three different patterns from the Cherry on Top DSP, each matted on a corresponding color.

The sentiment was stamped in Pool Party and layered over Bermuda Bay.

Enjoy!

Cherry on Top DSP

For today’s card share I wanted to show a few fun and bright patterns from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper.

My base color was Thick Whisper White and I layered it with Cucumber Crush. Both the top and bottom patterns come from the Cherry on Top DSP and were layered over the Cucumber Crush.

 I covered the seam between the two patterns with some Pool Party ribbon.

The sentiment came from the Apple of My Eye Stamp Set and is stamped in Watermelon Wonder and layered over the same.  I added some Crushed Curry baker’s twine above the sentiment and some small hearts to add some extra lovin’.

Enjoy!

PPA291 & Freshly Made Sketches 227

So what do you do when you have a packed week and sick kids get thrown in the mix?  You make a quick, simple card.  It may be minimalist, but it still gets the point across and sometimes those are my favorite.

For today’s card, I was inspired by the color challenge this week over at Pals Paper Arts and the layout challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.

I started with a base color of Watermelon Wonder.  I added two vertical strips from the Cherry on Top DSP.  Overlapping their seam, I put a vertical strip of Pool Party.

Hello - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

To mimic the circles in the Cherry on Top DSP, I added two small circles in the bottom corner to help highlight the sentiment, “Hello.”

Enjoy!

Scrapbooking

Welcome to my scrapbook!  I have yet to really share with you my first love, before cards, scrapbooking.

I have three kiddos, girl, boy, girl, and when I started I decided to make a scrapbook for them each.  For now it means a lot more work, but in the long run they each have something to call their own.  And honestly, once I get the layout for one, I just do it basically the same two more times.

Scrapbooks - Stamp It Up With Jaimie

I began about 2-1/2 years ago and honestly started in the present, so my kids have traditional photo albums of their baby and toddler years.  My kids LOVE their scrapbooks and when I come home from my scrapbook weekend in the fall, it’s not – Hi mommy, we missed you, but – Can I see my scrapbook?

So alas, here we go…

When I set up my double layout, I am not necessarily doing the same event or occasion or even day (although in this one I am) but I like them to be somewhat matchy-matchy.  For this one I used the 2015-2017 In-Colors and Cherry on Top DSP.

You’ll also see that I 99.9% of the time will mat my pictures.  It’s a habit and it can’t be broken.

I also tend to take a ton of pictures and love them all, so my layouts rarely have 2 or less pictures on them.

For what will be the page on the right, I used Cucumber Crush as my background color and highlighted with Crushed Curry and Tip Top Taupe.  I made a panel of banners using the Cherry on Top DSP, Crushed Curry Ribbon, 2015-2017 Washi Tape and then a detail of a Crushed Curry Button and Linen Thread.

For the page that will be on the left, I used a background color of Tip Top Taupe with the pictures matted in Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder.  The sentiment “Hooray” and “You Did It” is also from the Perfect Pairings Stamp Set.
