I Found Time To Scrap!

This first layout was done for a challenge on KJ Starre's Blog. She posted a challenge to do a layout based on a Simple Scrapbooks layout and we were supposed to do it about someone we admire. I chose to "admire" tigardlilly as a single mom, who has her two nephews living with her permanently. I know she works very hard to raise them and has given up a lot in her own personal life. Here's to you tigardlilly!


I made my own transparency overlay with white Staz On and Studio G stamps and inked the edges. I used Thickers and Tim Holtz's Distressing Ink to ink the letters. I like how the ink came away from the edge and gives the letters a sanded look. I also used Technique Tuesday Hanging By A Thread stamps and Storytellers stamp (without the bracket). I used an Imaginisce stamp for the flower. All the stamping was done with the Distressing Ink as well. The cardstock is a Walmart cardstock slab, and the printed paper is American Crafts Sixth Avenue.




This was the layout we were supposed to scraplift. Sometimes I take my scraplifting a little too serious! lol

This is the make and take I did for our Customer Appreciation Night at work. I didn't design it, but I got to make my own copy which I added my own touch to...Stickles! It used all American Crafts Kids collection...paper, ribbon, chipboard shapes, brads. The fonts used were from CK's Fresh Fonts by Ali Edwards, recognize the handwriting? I also used a Stardust pen by Sakura around the circle. This make and take turned out to be a hit, or so I was told. It was fun, but I am exhausted!

Tigardlilly is probably honored you chose her and it sounds like she deserves your admiration. Love the scraplift.
