February at Stick it Down

I can’t believe it is February already!!  Time for another double page sketch from Stick It Down!  This month, we are teaming up with Scrap the Boys challenge blog as well as Cheeky Studio.  I used both for inspiration for my layout.

First up…here is the sketch:

Here is the mood board I worked with: Image may contain: text.

Here is my layout:

Let me just tell you, I have had so much fun with this layout!  All the little squares (which I made 2.75″) were a perfect way to use up a bunch of scraps I had been saving.  Along with that, I was able to dig into my summer supplies and pull out some fun embellishments.  Instead of a long title, I was inspired by the mood board and used a bunch of words that were on an older Pebbles sticker sheet.

I also pulled out all the blue embellishments in the Wild Flower Set 3 from Cheeky Studio

That set is SO AMAZING!!  I’ve used it on some other layouts that I will be posting as well.  There is so much cuteness in one little package!!!  I think I am completely obsessed with their products!  Make sure to check them out!!

Thanks for checking out my blog!!  Please stay tuned for some more inspiration!  If you are on instagram, please follow me @onescrappymom71

Until next time…


February Sketch reveal at Sketches In Thyme

Hey everyone!!  Time for another sketch reveal!!  This time it is for Sketches in Thyme.  I am on team one and this is the awesome sketch we had to work with:

No automatic alt text available.

The triangles on the sketch really reminded me of a handkerchief at first sight so I decided to dig into my NEW Disney pictures and scrap Woody and Buzz.  We had such a great time at Disney this past month and took a LOT of character pictures.  This page is definitely a mixture of old and new.  I’m in love with all the toy-themed papers/stickers from Carta Bella’s Toy Box collection.  But I still enjoy some of the older themed paper and stickers that I have been hoarding to use. The square brads, I believe, were purchased probably 10+ years ago…but they really seemed to fit on this page.

Maleficent Dragon

You know it wouldn’t be a blog post from me without a Disney share! I continue to work on my albums and this is from 2014. We went to the parade and I just loved these pictures so much that I felt they deserved their own page. So using my new watercolors, I grunged it up a bit. I also wanted to dig into my stash a bit and found some chipboard letters that were gathering dust and used those for my title. I’m pretty pleased with the way it all came together.

Let’s Eat!!

So I am working through some random pictures I have in a bag (my current filing system…eek!) and I came across some pictures I had taken of an outing we took to Fort Wayne’s Famous Coney Island.  If you are from Fort Wayne or the surrounding area, you are well aware of this wonderful landmark.  It’s nearly always got a line out the door and the interior is reminiscent of a New York deli.  I just love going there and it has become a family favorite.

I have also been working on my scraproom organization and have been trying to use up some of my older stash.  As I was going through my papers, I found these papers that have a very old manufacturer that is no longer in business (I think it’s called Scrap the Moment??).  Honestly, I think this company was only around for a minute.  But I loved the feel of the store front…very Coney island.

I used this sketch from Sketch N Scrap:

Layout Sketches due January 31st and this is what I came up with…

I also dug out an old chipboard frame.  It actually had a bird on it, but I cut the bird off and saved it for later (because I am a hoarder.  LOL).

Change is hard sometimes. We all go through it. But sometimes change is a good thing and makes way for even better. When we went to Disney this past month, we noticed several changes from our last visit.  The biggest changes happened to Hollywood Studios.  The big Sorcerer’s Hat had been taken down, The Backlot and Stunt Show were gone…so many things were different.  But then we saw all the previous of what was to come (Star Wars…Toy Story…) and well, it was OK and I was excited to schedule my new trip!  The Great Movie Ride was another ride that made the chopping block.  As I continue to work on the my Disney album, I ran across the pictures I had taken of this ride.  It seemed strange that we would never ride this ride again, but I was glad we had gotten the opportunity.  I used this sketch from The Scraproom as inspiration:

Here is my take on the sketch:

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!  Stay tuned for more layouts this month!


Catching up

After an amazing 9 days at Disney World, I thought it might be a good idea to actually get caught up on previous trips.  Last time, we did several professional pictures and I have to admit, they were harder to scrap than some of the others.  But after seeing this sketch from Let’s Get Sketchy I was instantly inspired :

Here is my take on the sketch.  It was nice to use up some of my older Disney stash.

As I am participating in the 30/30 at A Cherry on Top and Rediscover Your Stash on Facebook, stay tuned for many more layouts this month.  I am attempting a spending freeze for at least the month of January…let’s see how much longer I can stand it!

A holiday photoshoot

This year we decided to do a family photo shoot with our kids and their younger cousins.  It’s been forever since I got a good picture of my children together.  As you can imagine, I was very excited and wanted to develop the pictures immediately.  I saw this sketch at Let’s Get Sketchy:

I flipped the sketch and used an 8×10 and here is what I came up with:

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  Happy New Year!!

The Headless Horseman

One of the reasons I love Fort Wayne is all the cool things there are to do here.  This year at the last minute we decided to go down to the old Fort and do a lantern tour.  While we were there, the Headless Horseman showed up!!

I used this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:

Layout Sketches due November 30th

and designed the die cut myself using my Pazzles.  This is what I came up with:
