Love second Page Layout

Here is the second page for my two page layout.  We were celebrating Father's day and had such a wonderful dinner out and gifts. 

I decided to use another sketch from Sketch Savvy.  I love her sketches and it made it really easy to create a second page without having to use the exact same sketch.

Here is the finished layout.  I'm really liking these colors.  Not sure how the hubby's going to feel about pink and red lol.

Love layout

I've been having a hard time scrapbooking lately and just don't seem to have the gumption to do so.  I love the craft but bringing out all the different things I would need to do a layout just seems like so much.

I finally just decided to make one layout and hope it starts me off and running.  I usually do two page spreads so I will most likely make a second page for this layout but at least its a start.

I used two challenges for this project.  1 2 3 Get Scrappy! and Sketch Savvy.


I choose to do hearts, plaid pattern, and red background.  I did work love into it.  The plaid is on both my husbands and older sons shirts (just happened to work out that way).

{heart strings}

I absolutely love this stamp set from Unity Stamps.  Such a simple set and gets straight to the point. I used the color challenge over at Unity Stamps blog and the sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch!

I used sponges and added a little color to the edges.  I wanted to soften all that white. I used Stampin' Up!'s blendabilities to color in the hearts.
SS: heart strings (unity)
INK: so saffron, soft sky ink pads, soft sky, daffodil delight, rich razzleberry blendabilites
CS: lost lagoon, whisper white, crumb cake
ACCESS: banner die, jewel rhinestones, sponges

Another Year Wiser

I have so many birthdays coming up that I have to really start working on some cards.  I used two great challenges to get this nerdy girl birthday card done today.  If I can, I always love to do the toppings at Seize the Birthday.  I just received a great heart splatter background stamp from Your Next Stamp and couldn't wait to use it on this card.

SS: heart splatter (your next stamp), nerdy girl
INK: tuxedo black, su blendabilities, real red
CS: basic black, real red, calypso coral, neutrals dsp
ACCESS: whisper white taffeta ribbon
