SFL Design Team Post-One Page Layout with Echo Park Let's Be Mermaids!



Hey All!!

Today I am coming to you with another DT post for the 
Scrapping For Less Design Team!! 

You remember the SUPER CUTE paper we used for the 
"Flavor Of The Month" Blog Hop (see important announce-
ment regarding this month's release below) from Echo Park 
called "Let's Be Mermaids"? Well, I remembered I had 
grabbed that a little while back and I wanted to play with
it again!! I REALLY loved that paper!!!

Once I grabbed the paper, I knew I wanted to make a one
page layout to put in my frame for our new Shore Home-I
have been ALL about decorating it!! This paper wound up 
being PERFECT for it! 

Here is my project:



I plan to put a picture of little Bran at the beach this past 
weekend on this, along with journaling! 

Thanks for checking out my project!!

NOW FOR THE ANNOUNCEMENT! 

"Due to unfortunate shipping delays of products needed for the July kit beyond our control we are postponing our July Flavor of the Month blog hop and reveal until July 22nd. Thanks so much."

SFL Design Team Post-SugarPea Designs Christmas in July Treat!

Hey All!!

Today is my Design Team Post day at Scrapping For Less

This month, we are showcasing products from "SugarPea Designs"! 

I have never heard of them prior to this month, but I will tell you, I sure love the colors in the paper pack I picked out for this month!

I knew I was going to be doing Christmas in July, so I picked items that I would use to make Christmas Treats and Christmas Cards! 

For my project today, I made a fun (and EASY) treat using the "Happy Holidays" paper pack and the "Treat Labels Christmas Addition" stamp set!

Wanna see it? 

Here it is!



I put a little treat inside and I plan to give this to the hubby for when he gets home from work (since bub doesn't like chocolate)! 

Thanks so much for swinging by today! 

Hope you enjoyed my project!

This month, I will be doing "Christmas In July" with SugarPea Designs products!

For my project today, I made a treat holder, perfect for giving to a Secret Santa, Pollyanna, or as a little "Jingle" gift! 

Here it is:


Supplies Used:

SugarPea Designs Popcorn Treat Box Die
SugarPea Sweet Treats Christmas Stamp Set
SugarPea Happy Holidays Patterned Paper Collection

I used my Cuttlebug to cut out the cute Popcorn Treat Box (cut 2 times), the oval shape, and the word TREATS. These were all included in the Die set. 

Once I got the pieces cut out, I used the two sized snowflakes in the Sweet Treats Stamp set, and embossed them with Ranger White ink. I stamped "Holly Jolly" in black ink and stamped it above the word TREATS. 

I then took my bone folder and curled some of the paper from the Happy Holidays Patterned Paper collection to make it look like bag filling! I love doing that! 

I did fill the bag with some Hersey Kisses! 

Now, you are off to TANYA'S blog!

And here is the line up in case you get lost:

Scrapping For Less June Flavor of the Month Blog Hop!

Ahoy, Mateys! 
It’s June’s Flavor of the Month Blog Hop!


Ahoy, Mateys! Pirates & Mermaids Be on Ye' Horizon! Scrapping for Less has partnered with Lawn Fawn and Neat&Tangled to bring you a treasure trove of fantastic stamp sets! In this month's kit only! 

Two full-size stamps are Lawn Fawn's "Ahoy Matey" "Mermaid for You", plus "So Jelly" shall be your booty! Shiver me Timbers there's more. 

If you purchase the Banana Split level, Neat&Tangled joins the crew with the sentiment stamp "Hope Anchors".  

But wait...we discovered so many fantastic items we couldn't bare to make them walk the plank so we put them in kits that can be purchased, A LA Carte! 

Along with some other treasure to be had if 'ye wish. 'Tis no mirage but alas a booty only comes along once in a Mermoon so grab it while 'ye can!  


Now hop on along and see what the team has fished up with the kit so 'ye can be inspired.



For my projects today, I am working with the DELUXE SUNDAE CARD KIT! Here are all the items you get with that kit:


Now, onto my projects! 

Collection One



I created Sketch 1. All I did was rotate the side of the banner so I had from to add my Mermaid and sentiment. 

I created this card by using the Under The Sea paper collection from Doodlebug, as well as the Let's Be Mermaids stickers from Echo Park. I also used the Purple Polka Dot Ribbon from the collection as well as the Kennedy Grace Sequins.

Collection 2


I created Sketch 4. Once again, all I did was rotate it so I could add a cute banner with the Let's Be Mermaid's Glitter Dots and Let's Be Mermaid stickers! 

I also used the SUPER CUTE Lawn Fawn "SO JELLY" stamp set with the Echo Park "Let's Be Mermaid's" Paper collection. The Kennedy Grace Sequins are SOOO pretty in this collection! 

On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment, YOU'RE A STAR which also came in the "SO JELLY" stamp set. 


Collection 3


I created Sketch 3 for this card. I did it as it was. 

I used the "Party Me Hearty" paper from Imaginisce along with the super cute pirate ship sticker, also from the same Imaginisce line. The cute little anchor is super cute A La Carte die! I die cut it from white card stock, then I took my Versamark ink and dabbed it all over the anchor. I covered it in Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it so it looked like a real anchor! I also embossed the compass looking stamp from Lawn Fawn's "Ahoy, Matey" stamp set. I stamped and colored the little pirate boy which is also from the same stamp set! To finish it off I stamped Ahoy Matey, and I added more Kennedy Grace Sequins. 

Collection 4


I created Sketch 2 for this card. I did it as it was. 

I used the Scrapberry's The Pirate's Treasure paper collection to create my card based off the sketch. I used the "Ahoy, Matey" stamp set to create the treasure chest-which I finally used the BEAUTIFUL metallic water color that I got from Theresa's store to paint in my treasure in gold! I also add the map sticker from the "Pirate's Gem's" stickers. I also distressed the layers on this card to give it an old time feel. And to finish the card, I once again used the Kennedy Grace Sequins. 

I truly hope you liked my projects! 

You are now off to Tina! 

And here is the lineup should you get lost!

SFL Design Team Post-Layout featuring Authentique "Saucy"

Hey All!

Thanks for checking in on my Design Team post for Scrapping for Less today!

Today, I wanted to share a layout I made using the SAUCY paper collection from Authentique! 

This collection cracks me up!! I love the old time feel with the funny jokes on the cards! 

For my layout, I did not use the jokes though, because I plan to use these pages to scrapbook some pics of little Bran cooking with me when he was little! 


Here is my layout:





Additional items I used were Doodlebug Sprinkles!

I distressed the edges of all the paper, and I doodled lines on my picture mats which were cut to:
 4.25 X 6.25
 4.25 X 4.25
 3.25 X 4.25

I think the recipe cards are going to be used as one for the recipe and one for journaling! I thought that would make it playful!

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Remember, you can get everything I used in the Scrapping For Less online store!

Have a great day!!

SFL Design Team Post- Lawn Fawn "I PINE For You" Card

Hey All!!

I am here with another Design Team Post for 

Today, I wanted to share a SUPER QUICK CARD that 
I made my hubby since he was having a bad day 
(he told me before he had to leave for work). 
I wanted him to come home to a little something that
might brighten his night! 

Here is my cute little card I made:


For my card, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 3 X 6 and 
scored it at 3 inches along the 6 inch side. 

I stamped the cute pineapples from the ALOHA stamp set from Lawn Fawn in archival ink, and then used the coordinating die, ALOHA to cut out the pineapples and the sunglasses. 

I used my glitter markers (which I have been obsessed with lately, can you tell?) to color these little cuties in! 

I added a piece of Doodlebug Fairy Tales Washi Tape-Happy Hearts to back the green piece of cardstock that I placed on top of a scrap piece of cardstock (yupppp...thats from May Flavor of The Month Card kit-you SERIOUSLY get so much in the Flavor of The Month kits). 

After I finished with the card base, I added the pineapples on top with some foam tape, and then stamped "I PINE FOR YOU" on archival black ink, so it stood out on the patterned paper. 

And that was it! 

I have a little note inside the card to my hubby, 
but I won't be sharing that! :) 

Ok friends! That's it!

If you loved the items I used, be sure to grab them up in Teresa's store by clicking HERE!

Have a great day! Thanks for checking out my post!

What Could Be Better Than Lawn Fawn-SFL Blog Hop!



Hello!

Welcome to the June Blog Hop featuring

LAWN FAWN

and 

SCRAPPING FOR LESS!!

You should of arrived here from the Scrapping For Less Blog!


Scrapping for Less brings you a whole month of Lawn Fawn! 



We are kicking off this month’s feature focus with a blog hop showcasing all the brand new Lawn Fawn products. 

We hope you will find some inspiration and you will love this company as much as we do. 
So sit back, join in, and be ready to be wowed with some fabulous projects from our Design Team! 

Remember to sign up for the Rafflecopter at the Scrapping for Less Blog for a chance at a fabulous Lawn Fawn prize!

For my project this month, I worked with the MAGIC COLOR SLIDER DIE and the MERMAID FOR YOU stamp set!

These two products were SOOOO much fun to play with! 

So, since I had the Magic Color Slider dies, I KNEW I was going to make a card! I couldn't wait to play with them!

Here is my card with the slider closed:


Here is my card with the slider open:

I wanted to build a whole under the sea theme with the card!

I started by rubbing my ink pad in a way to make a "sueded" background so I could try to give the "illusion" of water moving around my Mermaids! 

Additionally, I used masking paper to make a "mask" for the Mermaids that I stamped so I could stamp the seaweed around them and not have the seaweed cover my little Mermaids! I colored the Mermaids and the seahorse with glitter markers because, well, let's face it, Mermaids are magical and need to be full of glitter!   

Once I finished the slider part of the card, I grabbed some scrap from my stash and used it to cover my white card base. Then I added the sentiment "We MERMAID for each other"! HOW CUTE!!! 

On the inside, I just added the same piece of coordinating scrap, and left it blank so I could write a special little note to my hubby for his lunch box so he could get a laugh one night at work! 

I sure hope you enjoyed my under the sea theme card for the hop! 

Now, you are off to TERESA'S blog!

And here is the lineup in case you get lost

Jessica-YOU ARE HERE
Teresa- NEXT!

So now, onto my projects!! 

This month, I had the Double Dip level-boy did I get A TON!
Check it out: 





I was so excited by all the different collections in this kit. It was great! I crafted the whole day away, and time certainly got away from me, lol! 

For my projects this month, I wanted to add a little more 
"pizzaz", so I created 2 Fun Fold cards, and a Shaker card, along with a regular fold card! 

Here they are!





Collection 1

Open

Closed for mailing :) 

Collection 1 included six 6x6 sheets of Echo Park "Happy Summer" paper, and Brutus Monroe "Happy Summer" stamp, as well as the "Happy Summer" Ephemera (also from Echo Park) and the Kennedy Grace Sequins called "Happy Summer". 

I used the included "Ballerina Pink" from the My Colors Cardstock company to make the base, and stamped the Brutus Monroe stamps all over it to make a pattern using Pixie ink. I used the "Happy Summer" paper and Ephemera from Echo Park to make the sentiment piece, which is what I made my sketch 1 from. And finally, I added the Kennedy Grace sequins to the front of the base. 

This card is called a Pull Up Box card. You can find the tutorial on Split Coast Stampers. 


Collection 2


Collection 2 included six 6x6 sheets of Bo Bunny "Petal Lane" paper, and My Favorite Things "Fresh Squeezed" stamp set,  as well as "Petal Lane" Ephemera and Clear Stickers also from Bo Bunny and Kennedy Grace Sequins called "Petal Lane". 

I used more of the "Ballerina Pink" as well as the Bo Bunny paper to make this card. I used a regular scallop punch to make the bottom of the card with the sentiment. I stamped the sweet little girl onto the included White yardstick from the kit. I colored her in and made her a part of the card sketch 4. 


Collection 3

Front of the card-flat

Card opened, top view

Card opened-side view

Collection 3 included six 6x6 sheets of Carta Bella "Work Hard, Play Hard" paper, Small Stamps "Scooter" stamp set, as well as "Work Hard, Play Hard" Ephmera, "Gears" brads, and Kennedy Grace "Work & Play" sequins. 

I used the "Lemon Lime" and "Deep Blue" cardstock from the My Colors Cardstock collection found in the kit to make the base of this card. I added the Carta Bella patterned paper and ephemera to make the rest of the card. I also added the gears and some sequins to the front. I used the Prima Metallic Watercolors that Teresa offers in her online store to do a watercolor wash background of the stamp. 

This card is called a "Free Standing Pop Up card" and the tutorial can be found at Split Coast Stampers. 



Collection 4




Collection 4 includes six 6x6 sheets of Carta Bella "Travel Stories" paper, Jillibean Soup "Fly Away" Stamp set, as well as "Go See Explore" Enamel Dots, "Ogee" Embossing Folder, and Kennedy Grace Sequins "Travel Stories". 

For this card, I also used the optional add-on, JilliBean "Small Circle Set" dies to match the "Fly Away" set. I also decided to turn it into a Shaker Card! I used "Deep Blue" cardstock with the Ogee Embossing Folder to start the base of the card. I used the Fly Away stamp set and stamped the SENDING HUGS and the Clouds onto white cardstock that is included in the kit. I used the included GO SEE EXPLORE enamel dots on the front of the balloon that I made. The stripes of the balloon were also stamped from the JilliBean stamp set. 

I truly hope you enjoyed my cards today!
