Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Monthly Archives: March 2011

Two Peas has 4 great no-charge classes running the entire year. This layout was created for one of them with Nichol Magouirk called Scrapbook Stamping. Every month a different challenge is issued to use stamps on your layout somehow.

Here’s my version of this month’s assignment, using woodblock stamps. I do admit that I also used some clear stamps, but the majority are wood block stamps. The candle border and title are Hero Arts wood block. The cake is from The Stamps of Life and the journaling box is Autumn Leaves.

I was able to visit the back woods of Kentucky a couple of years ago when I was working with P K Glitz. Janelle and Jim, co-owners, have a beautiful old B&B right by the rail tracks. It was a really fun visit with a great chance to feel cool weather and see the leaves change.

This layout is for Shimelle’s 4×6 Photo class at 2Peas. I was SO excited to use some super old supplies that were just too good to throw out! It felt great to use up some stash!

I’m so proud of myself for staying mostly up-to-date this year! I know it’s only March, but little steps count towards achieving the main goal right?

I am using BasicGrey to document my Project 12 this year. Last year’s layouts looked SO great, that I didn’t want to muck up a good thing!

Those of you who aren’t familiar with Project 12, it’s a monthly 2-page layout summarizing with pictures what happened last month. The sketches are compliments of Becky Fleck and the concept is with Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. Prizes are given every month too!
