My Girl Layout

I love these pictures we took at the beach of my niece.  She posed so nice for the cameraman.  In this layout I used a few mediums.  I used my Tattered Angels sprays on top of my gesso, chipboard from one of my monthly kits from My Creative Scrapbook.

New layout

I think going to the Scrapbook Expo really got me pumped into doing more scrapbooking on a daily basis.  I created this layout using my papers from the Swirlydoos kit this month.  Prima Marketing Paper - Time Travelers Collection - Priceless moments, Blue Fern Studios Chipboard from my stash, Shimmerz paints Dazzelerz Tutti Frutti - pink hearts and dots on the right of the page, flowers and some random scraps I added for demension.

Julie Nutting tag


I made this tag last night.  I have a co workers birthday coming up so I figured I can make her this as a gift.  One of the new stamps I purchased this weekend at the Expo.  I was waiting for my show to come on tv so I said I can multitask and get at least one tag done.  This stamp was a bit harder to cut out as she has really tiny legs.  I used stickles this time on her hair and the body of the dress.  I also had some gesso on the tag for more 3D effect.  The outline of the dress was from my Swirlydoos Kit this month - AC Zazz glitter glue.  Prima Flowers, tags from the kit as well. I also added from Butter Bee the trinkets - a dragon fly and the hummingbird. Don't mind the mess in the background that's my scrap zone!

Tag I created from Swirlydoos Kit

Here is a tag I created using my new Julie Nutting stamp.  The Papers are from my Swirlydoos kit this month.  Prima The Traveler for the tag itself.  I also could not find my X-acto tag template in my stash - shocker - so I used the actual Prima card stock the stamp came in as the template - perfect size too!  I inked the side of the tag with black chalk ink, the Doll is Prima paper No. 7 and for her dress I used Prima Forever Roses.  I also added a few bling items to her dress for more of a pop!  Queen & Co Twinkle Motifs, AC DIY Shop Cork heart Sticker, Mrs. Grossman's Natural art - flowers to the bottom of the tag, I also used this purple mess to have some color as this is mostly brown.  I just purchased this at the Scrapbook Expo.
