Scraptastical Kreations Design Team Project #44

WoWsErS!! I love this layout and it is now my favorite of all the ones that I have ever created! I used the "A Boy's Life" file from which you can find here! I cut the file at the size it is. The pattern paper that I used in the background is "Construction" by Recollections and it can be found in the open stock at Michaels. For the "caution" photo mats I made those myself using the Silhouette Studio by taking a 4 1/2" by 6 1/2" yellow square and then a thin black rectangle and then angling and copy and pasting to complete the photo mat. For the "dirt" piles I used the dirt pile from the dump truck in this file, enlarged it, crumpled it in my hands, and then inked using the Tim Holtz Black Soot distress ink around then edges and on the crinkles. It worked perfectly and I love the look. I put all the boys and the title on foam squares and also 2 of the photo mats. Thank you for stopping by =)

Scraptastical Kreations Design Team Project #42

Welcome back to another DT project for Scraptastical Kreations! For my 12x12 layout I used the adorable little set called "Sweet Lemonade"! How many of you have children that have set up a little lemonade stand in your front yard, or yourself when you were young? Stop on over to and pick up this file and many more to choose from. There are 3 bears in this set, but I chose to use only one of them. I used the DCWV Lemon Flower stack for my pattern papers. I cut the pattern as is when downloaded. I used a Fiskars scallop punch and twine from See ya soon :o)

Scraptastical Kreations Design Team Project #41

Hey thanks for stopping by for another Scraptastical Kreations DT project! I made this adorable card using the cupcake from "Keep It Simple Set(KISS)~"This and That"!

I used a pattern paper from the Silhouette Studio online store, then I used the pink and brown from that paper and chose to do a *print and cut* for the cupcake. I also decided to use an offset of 0.130" in white so that it would stand out from the background paper.

For her beautiful face I used the Peachy Keens Stamp set "Snow Many Face Assortment-PK484". I colored it in using my Copic Markers and then highlighted with a white gel pen.
