Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

DB took a trip a couple years ago to attend his high school reunion. While there, he was able to drive around his old stomping grounds on the coast of Maine with his Mom and Sister. He got some beautiful shots of the scenery around Acadia National Park. Enjoy!

I love stamping on my scrapbook pages, so the online class from Nichol Magouirk is great inspiration every month.

Here’s a page with stamped embellishments and a title all using The Stamps of Life clear stamps.

Scrapbook Stamping online class at Two Peas

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 purchased and won (yea!) some clear stamp sets from The Cat’s Pajamas. I used a set in one of the cards for the Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoaststampers recently and am using another one to meet a couple challenges this week.

I paper pieced the little girl in this set using BasicGrey’s Two Scoops Collection, an oldie but goodie. The colors are so yummy! I also used one of my new Spellbinders fancy label dies that I just love. So fun and a great result! I hope you’ll think so too.

I love making cards!

It’s Virtual Stamp Night this weekend on Splitcoast Stampers, so I thought that I would indulge myself in some stamping just for the fun of it. In the past, much of my stamping has been for a specific Design Team purpose, but since resigning from many of the different teams, my creative schedule has been lighter than in the past. I’m having a lot of fun just stamping for the heck of it. 🙂

So, VSN has various challenges under this month’s theme of You Make My Heart Sing. The hostesses are extremely creative with their challenges all relating back to the main theme. Great job ladies!

Here is the first of the cards with many more to come:

FEB11VSNA sketch challenge

One of the fun online challenges this weekend at Scrapbook Steals was a layout of a little known fact about yourself.

I decided to mention that I don’t like lobster which many people probably do not know. Lots and lots of people like lobster. Since I grew up in Maine, you would think that I love it. Not the case. I think it’s just too hard to get the meat, too expensive and just isn’t a great taste for me.

MWM #27 sketch and online challenge #2

Scrapbook Steals has a great Mid-Week Mojo sketch that I used for this scrapbook page. Yes, a REAL scrapbook page! I took a look at my stash and the pages that I was behind on and made a decision that I must scrap more! I will definitely still do cards, but my scrapbook page count needs to go up dramatically.

No stamping on this page, just some die cuts, chipboard letters and stickers. It was fun, relatively quick and looks pretty decent! I’ve decided that I’m going to put sketches with pictures together in an effort to make it easier to get pages done. The next step would be to pull the papers to go with each page, so we’ll see how that goes. I’ve scheduled 2 crops to attend within the next 2 months also. COOL!
