a few projects

TGIF my Scraptastic friends!
This week has flown by...I can't believe it's Friday already. Hubs has been gone all week for work (Napa)...must be nice. My week started off with Bailey having lice...totally has grossed me out. I don't like bugs of any kind. So that's been my week, how has your week been?

Today I'm sharing a couple of projects that I finished up over the weekend. 
First up is The Twister Champ

I used the Celebrate Life Kit and Add-On for this layout...the pictures from a sleepover that we had weeks ago were perfect for this kit! I hand cut all of the banners on the bottom and then matted them with white cardstock so they stood out better on the black cardstock. I painted the white thickers that were in the add-on with a paint dauber from a past kit...the white just wasn't working for me. 

Next up is a layout that I made using the Be Amazing Kit and Add-On.
Be Amazing

To start, I splattered my kraft cardstock with Miss Mary Mack Sprinkler, Atmosphere Mister Huey and White Mister Huey. I matted my patterned papers with the teal cardstock from the kit. And I totally stole Melanie's idea of tearing the chipboard pieces apart from the chipboard sheet in the add-on...I really like all of those pieces much better once they weren't so thick. Oh, and the little kraft butterfly stickers...I painted the edges of the smaller butterfly with a teal paint dauber from a past kit and then layered how they turned out.

And last up is a little Birthday card that I made with the Celebrate Life Kit
Happy Birthday

I hand cut the banners and matted them on black cardstock and then white cardstock. I then punched some holes in the top so I could run my twine through them, made some bows and voila....a cute little birthday card.

I'm hoping to spend a little time in my scraproom this weekend...fingers crossed!
I will have the first sneaks of the April Kits next weekend...I'm just waiting on my last box of scrappy goodies. I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend!


  1. Love the splatter backgrounds on these, as well as the twine (with bows!) stringing the banners on the card.

  2. The aqua is just a great colour in those layouts. I like it with the yellow, I like it with the red. I just like it. Love the splatters. So far I haven't been brave enough to try splatters or sprays. Soon as the warm weather comes, i will try it outside!

  3. I'm so sorry about Bailey getting lice. One of my good friends just called to tell me that they won't come to Jordan and Brandon's party this weekend because her daughter has it.

    Your layouts look AMAZING! I really love the Twister one. It's so playful and fun.
