Layout & Card

Well it seems that I'm on a roll with all of these layouts of the wedding photo's, I guess my mojo finally decided to come home, lol. This layout is of my son and granddaughters. The girls just looked so beautiful in their dresses, hence the title of my layout "Our Beautiful Girls". I used the Kaisercraft "Lilac Whisper" paper collection again for this layout. I added lots of layers and distressed all the papers. Flowers from my stash, a couple of little butterflies and the "Beautiful" tag from the ephemera pack from the Lilac Whisper collection. I also popped up the photos with some cardboard. I'm quite happy with how it turned out.

I decided to enter the card challenge over at Swirlydoos, this challenge was to use stitching on our cards. I use to always add stitching to any cards I made but for some reason I stopped doing that. I've been wanting to use these Kaisercraft papers on a card so this was the perfect excuse. The cards a pretty simple one but I liked how it turned out. TFL!

Your Own Kind of Beautiful

I think this photo of my daughter-in-law and granddaughter is so beautiful so of course I had to scrap it with all of the other wedding photos. I used the Kaisercraft "Sage & Grace" paper collection for this layout. I cut different size papers from the collection to layer along with 2 banner strips. I distressed all the papers. I added some pretty Petaloo and Kaisercraft orange flowers as well as some small mint & white paper flowers. The title is from one of the cut offs from the bottom of the 12 x 12 papers from the collection. I also added some black drips and splats to the layout to finish it off. TFL and I'd love to hear your comments! Have a great weekend!

Another B&W

This is another B&W photo that the photographer from my son's wedding took. I love this one, it look's as if my son is looking to the future of his life and being married to his wife. I decided to do basically the same layout as I did the other day for the B&W photo of my son and daughter-in-law kissing. This one I switched the background paper to a basically white background and then the larger strip being the pink roses with a darker color. I used some strips of some of the other papers to layer with and cut some of the cards out of the paper collection.  I also fussy cut some roses and feathers from the papers. The photo I popped up with cardboard, added some flowers from my stash, a key and the "Love" chippie. To finish it all off I added drips and splats of black paint. I really liked how it turned out. I'd love to hear your comments, TFL!

Still doing the wedding photos. I really liked this B&W photo of my son & his wife that the photographer took. I used the Prima "Rose Quartz" papers again and for my background paper I used the one with the black mottled look. I took a piece of the small rose papers and tore a diagonal strip to go acroos the backgroud paper. I cut three of the other papers into different length strips to go behind the photo. I distressed all the papers but I didn't ink these ones. I popped the photo up with some cardboard and added some flowers from my stash. I then fussy cut some roses from the papers and popped them up with cardboard and added them to the layout. I also fussy cut some feathers from the paper and added them to the layout. After I added my "kiss" title I took some white paint that I watered down and added some paint splats around the layout. Here's the finished layout, TFL!

I'm amazing myself at getting all these wedding photos scrapped, I'm doing at least one a day which for me is great! These two photos are of my daughter-in-law with her daughter and son. So I now officially have four grandchildren!

For this layout I chose Prima's "Rose Quartz" paper collection, it's just so pretty. I did a few layers with rectangles and a couple of banner strips. I popped the photo's up with some cardboard and did some fussy cutting of the roses from the paper which you can see on the top left corner of the photo. I distressed all the papers but I didn't ink them this time, preferring to have a bit cleaner look. I took a couple of my white flowers and inked them with some pink Lindy's Stamp Gang starburst ink from my stash and added a darker rose which I appled some gesso to here and there on the flower. I added a metal key, a tag and a clock and called it done. TFL!

The Ceremony

Another wedding layout, this one of the ceremony. I used Kaisercraft's "Lilac Whisper" paper collection again, I'm in love with this collection, it's just so pretty!  I did a lot of layers and distressed and inked all of the papers. I added flowers from my stash, along with adding one where I've torn the paper on the top right side of the paper, rolled the paper back, added a small piece of background paper and popped a small rose in between the torn paper. I added a small silver rose with mauve bow. I printed out a couple of pretty mauve butterflies and cut them out, then covered them with Glossy Accents. Once they were dry I added some wire antenas that I made to them and added them to the layout. I was quite happy with how the layout turned out. TFL!

Wedding Take 3

It's time I do a layout of the guys in the wedding party. I love these photo's of the guys in their tux's, they all look so handsome. In the photo of the whole group from left to right is my son's best friend since elementary school, my nephew, my son and my grandson. In front we have the 2 Jackson's, my great nephew and my now new grandson.

For this layout I used Kaisercraft's "Lilac Whisper" paper collection. Even though these papers are all floral they really went well with the navy blues in the tuxedos. I did lots of layers and distressed and inked all the papers. A few flowers from my stash and called it done. I was quite happy at how the layout turned out. I'd love to hear your comments on the layout. TFL! Here's the finished layout.

Wedding Layout Part 2

Another wedding layout using the Kaisercrafts "Sage & Grace" paper collection. My son & daughter-in-law had all their photo's taken before the ceremony. I just love these photo's of my son and daughter-in-law when they got to see each other for the first time in all their wedding attire. The look on my son's face when he saw Angela in her dress just brings tears to my eye's seeing how in love he is.

I used the Shabby Chic paper from the collection as my background paper. I took the other duplicate paper and fussy cut the flowers from the bottom right of the paper and added some foam dots to them and placed them over top of the same flowers on the background paper.One of the things I like about this paper collection is the bottom strips of the paper have all of these sayings on them that are perfect to use on your layouts.  My layout is based on a sketch from "SketchObilities" #53. Here's the finished layout, I'd love to hear your comments, TFL!

Wedding Layout

Well I've finally got started doing some layouts of the photos from my son's wedding in June. This layout is of my my daughter-in-law checking out her hair while getting ready the morning of the wedding. I was so happy that the photographer took the photo of her hair as the hairdresser just did a beautiful job on it. I've used the Kaisercrafts "Sage & Grace" paper collection for this layout and Petaloo's "Botanica" flowers for the layout, the colors went perfect with the photos! Here's the finished layout.
Have a great day everyone!

Website Re-vamp

I finally got the re-vamp of my website done. Since I was down on the mainland for 3 weeks I wasn't able to do any scrapping I decided to work on my website. I managed to get the new website all uploaded to the internet this afternoon. You can check out my site here:

New Mini Album

Wow where did the summer go? I can't believe it's August already. I was down on the mainland for most of June for my granddaughters graduation from High School and my son's wedding. Of course being a scrapper I have a ton of more photo's to scrap now! 

I've been busy working on another mini album that I finished off last week. I was a lot quicker making this one compared to my first mini that took forever because I was waiting for the small magnets I had bought from eBay. This album I made 6"x6" and used Kaisercrafts "Lilac Whisper" paper collection. These papers are sooooo pretty! Here's a photo of the front cover of the album.
I've done a video so you can see the inside pages. There's a ton of spots for photo's and journaling. I'd love to hear what you think of it. Have a great weekend all!
