Stuck?Sketches and Creative Embellishments

Here I am today with another layout using the Creative Embellishment's chipboard combined with the current Stuck?Sketches sketch.  I have these wonderful pictures of my granddaughter, Madison, who is graduating this month.
Here's the sketch:

 And some closeups.  I painted the chipboard with gesso first, then with acrylic paint and then dabbed some metallic rub-ons on it.


Here's the chipboard I used on it - two full flourishes - cut up some of the Flourish 12 set.

Thanks for stopping by!

CSI Case File #170 and Creative Embellishments

 Another fun week with Creative Embellishments and CSI - love that I'm on both their Design Teams! This week we have a fun Case File with some bright fun colors for summer.  Here's how I solved it using pictures from one of our summer rituals which is a family birthday party at the end of July for all the guy's birthday (3) that are right there at the end of the month.  We meet at Becky's (step-daughter's) for a day of family fun and sun. I've used some of the Celebrate Words chippies and also one of the Flourish 27.  Then I cut a section of the Triangle Panel and backed it with papers and embellishments.

  
Here's a few close ups of the chipboard.  The flourish I sprayed with Heidi Swapps Color Shine in Citron (love this) and the Words I painted red and then added red glitter to.  The Triangle panel I painted red and blue and added embellishments and patterned paper.

CSI and Creative Embellishments

Hi, it's Debbie Standard up today. This month Creative Embellishments has teamed up with CSI to solve some Case Files!  This week we are solving Case File #169 together with Em Stafrace's sketch.  I'm on both Design Teams so this has worked for me very well!  These are some pictures of my son and daughter  ( the youngest) telling how hard it is to get a good picture of them together!  I have used some words from the Special Moments Word Set together with the Flourish 10 (one of my favorites!)



Thanks for stopping by - your sweet words make my day!

Creative Embellishments and Sketchabilities

This month we have combined Creative Embellishments with Sketchabilities. Here's my layout using some of my granddaughter's graduation pictures.First up here's the Sketchabilities sketch we used together with the monthly Mood Board for the monthly challenge at Creative Embellishments. I took my inspiration from the photograph from the blue sky and the flowers.  For my page I have used the Flourish Set 10, the Stars in my Universe Frame and the Lamp Post Set.  For the twist I added a heart from the wood veneer Heart Set.


 Here's some close ups.  Here I painted the frame gold then added some gold glitter to the stars. 
 On the leaves first I painted them green and then smeared some metallic rub ons on them.

 And here's the chipboard I used:

Creative Embellishments

I'm up today on the Creative Embellishment's Blog and I have a layout for you I did with one of Em's sketches and pictures of my son and daughter who attended a friend of Brandy's from nursing school's wedding.  They had a ball - Brandy caught the bouquet!  Brandy is well know for her dancing (since she's danced since she was three) and her younger brother is right behind her!  I used several pieces of the Creative Embellishment's chipboard here: the Square Chain Border, the Love Notes Wood Veneer, and the Moment's Word Set and the Flourish Set 10. I love the Flourish Set 10 set because it's easy to cut this into smaller pieces when you don't need a large set. I painted the Green with Heidi Swapp's Citron Color Shine.  The hearts were painted pink and then I added Doodle Bug glitter.  The Embrace I painted gold then sprinkled some Martha Stewart gold glitter on it although the picture makes it look like different colored glitter - it's all gold IRL.
   
 Here's some close ups - like I said before the Embrace is only gold glitter but it looks different photographed.
 The Heidi Swapp Color Shine give these just the right contrast.
 And here's close ups of all the chipboard and veneer I used:







Thanks so much for stopping by!

Case File #168 for CSI and some Gossamer Blue

 Wow lazy blogger lately.  Working soooo hard on my yard I'm not good for a whole lot! Lucky for us the developer left a MASSIVE pile of mulch behind our yard as well as a huge pile of gravel!  We have been putting it to good use.  I have hauled probably 40-50 BIG wheelbarrow loads so far. This is where we are at now.  I'm trying to zeroscape most of the backyard -to the right of this will be the pool and another large covered patio.  I've planted some of the larger base plants but will add smaller flower patches throughout it as I go.  Also t here where will be more brick to create tiers through here.  Definitely a work in progress but it's doing wonders for my arms and back lol!
First up I have my take on the CSI Case File @168.
   
 Then I have several pages from my latest kit with Glossamer Blue. Several of Gavin and then one of Brandy and friends.

Creative Embellishments

I'm up again at Creative Embellishments and I have another layout for you today.  I got these awesome pictures of my granddaughter, Madison, and I have had a wonderful time scrapping them. Creative Embellishment has so many options with chipboard designs that it's easy to construct a page with them.
 And some close ups.  For the flourished I sprayed them with Martha Stewart Citrus Color Shine.  With the Chain frames I painted them with Ranger Distress Paint in picket fence and then dabbed some pink ink on them.
 For the title I painted it with the TH Ranger then sprinkled some Martha Stewart glitter on it before it dried.

Here's the products I used:
First the Bicycle Chain Frames:
Then the title from the Happy Word Set
The large Flourish from the Flourish 15 set
And the last flourish I cut up and used was from the Flourish 27 set
