Let's Scrap Blog Hop: Resolution #6; My Love........

Resolution #6 at Let's Scrap's Hoppy New Year Blog Hop was a hard one for me: It had a fixed sketch and with that you had to make either a card or a layout in the theme of love! I came up with the idea of making a card for my DH Richard! Needless to say that I love him a lot!

I did use the sketch as my inspiration but got sidetracked along the way! LOL
Again, I used my stash for this card.

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: I think it is one of the first lines from Doodlebug, but correct me if I am wrong)
Die cut: Zip-e-mate
Transparency: Heidi Swapp
Rub-ons: Scenic Route

The die-cut heart is made out of craft foam. I inked the foam because it did not have the right color! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Let's Scrap Blog Hop Resolution #5

Revolution #5 at the Let's Scrap Blog hop was the one from Caro: Use a Let's Scrap sketch to make a layout or a card and do not open any new package of anything., so use your stash! I have been pretty good with using my stash lately. So this was a very nice and easy challenge for me. I combined several different paper lines form different manufacturers (love doing that) and they were all pices I had still lying around, not one whole piece of paper has been used on this LO. Okay, the piece of cardstock that I used as a base was a whole piece, LOL.

This is what I came up with. DS Joram told me today that he wanted me to scrap about him, and so I did! Somehow the colors of the scan are a bit off (again, I know, got to work on that) the colors of the detailed pics are much better.

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: Daisy D's, October Afternoon, Cosmo Cricket, Creative Imaginations
Transparency: Creative Imaginations
Rub-ons: My Minds Eye
Border punch: Fiskars
Misc: Rhinestones, staples, paper bag, sewing machine

There's still enough time to join Let's Scrap and start participating in the blog hop. It will last until February the 14th. There are so many cool prizes and there are so many great challenges! 

Let's Scrap Blog Hop Resolution #4

I did not have a whole lot of scrapping inspiration the last couple of days. Somehow I lost my mojo and did not know where to look for it. My FIL is having his birthday in a little over a week and I thought scrapping a birthday card would be a good try to get my mojo back. Most of the times making cards isn't really to stimulating for me but it was worth the try. Resolution #4 was one from Cori. She came up with this challenge:
1) Use a Let's Scrap Sketch

2) Create a scrapbook layout or card
3) Use a list somewhere on your project

This is what I came up with. I was pretty happy with how it looks and I know my FIL will be.

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: from a drugstore (pretty cool right? It's a 6x6 stack)
Ink: StazOn

Well, I hope my mojo came back with the card because I would reallyl ike to do ssome scrapping tonight! Now that I am saying this: This card has been mailed out already, wonder if I sent my mojo along with it.............

For all of you: Have a wonderful and scrappy weekend!

Layout update

Every once in a while I see pics flying by on my computer and I wonder if I ever posted them on my blog. I know I did not posted this one. So here we go. This is a LO that I made for the Let's Scrap designteam a couple of weeks ago. It is on the bottom of my 'have to put them in an album' pile, so it could be a while ago that I made it, probably somewhere end of November. I know the sketch was the last one in December.

The pics on this LO where taken in Austria while I was skiing there with four moms out of DS Jorams class. Two of them (including me) had never skied before. We had lots of fun (and the ugliest ski teacher you can imagine. All those georgeous teacher had a different group)

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: Bo Bunny
Die Cuts: Bo Bunny
Rhinestones: Prima Marketing
Stickers: American Crafts
Glue rub-ons: K and Company
Flock: Studio G

Let's Scrap Blog Hop: Resolution #1

Resolution #1 (aka challenge) was to scraplift a LO you really liked using a Let's Scrap sketch. I right away knew who I was going to scraplift but still I spent way too much time browsing through the gallery looking for other stuff. Ofcourse there are tons of beautiful LO's and cards, but I decided to stick with my first one: A LO from Scarlett. I love Scarletts work and her style.
This is what I came up with:

I thought this is such a funny photo. DD Jinte (now 18 months) got her hands on DS Jorams Nintendo DS. And ofcourse she does not know how to play a game but she sure knows what to do. She will take the stylus out and use it on the screen and pressses on every available button. A girl of modern times.

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned paper: October Afternoon, Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey, Daisy D's
Chipboard Stickers: K and Company, Heidi Swapp, Imagination Project
Sheers: Maya Road
Jump rings: Queen and Company
Border stickers: K and Company
Flowers: Prima Marketing, Making Memories
Pearls: Kaisercraft
Rhinestones: Bazzill
Misc: Crocheted flower, My homemade glimmermist

The owl and the brench were cut with my Silhouette machine. I really loved this challenge and it was fun to have finished my first Resolution. Thanks Betty Anne for this fun challenge.

For those who still want to join: No problem at all! The hop will take until February the 14th and there's 15 challenges and tons of fun on the site. So 'hop' over to Let's Scrap and join so the fun can begin!

Sketch Wednesday at Let's Scrap

I have been a bad blogger last two weeks. Let me first start by explaining you why! I got the major opportunity to take over Let's Scrap together with my good friend Betty Anne (the one from Ontario Canada, not the one from BC) Cheri and Kim (who both do the great sketches for Let's Scrap) decided to stay and so there is now four great people keeping a great site on the go!

I did get the opportunity to scrap a little here and there so here we go with revealing my take on this weeks sketch. If you want to see the sketch (a double pager, not my favorite, but I know that most people rather have doubles than singles and you can always make a single out of a double, so there is two great sketches in there for me!) you will have to join Let's Scrap!

I guess I don;t really have to explain the title of this layout! DD Jinte loves Cheerios. Which is great, because of her food allergies she is not allowed a whole lot of stuff and these are completely wise and healthy for her to eat. Have to mention this though: Cheerios is not a common product here, My dear MIL brought to mega bags of them along from Canada the last time she was here.
There's also a story to that little Tupperware bowl Jinte is holding. It came from my moms kitchen and I believe I also snacked from it when I was Jinte's age.

Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterend paper: Basic Grey
Stickers: American Crafts Thickers
Rub-ons: DCWV
Misc: Felt border, rhinestones

The flowers swirls were cut with my beloved Silhouettte!

Just a reminder: In  only two days the huge blog hop from Let's Scrap will start (see the sticky post on top) You will still have time to join Let's Scrap and join in on all the fun! There will be over 15 challenges and you will have a month (!) to finish them all. There's a chance for a price on every finished challenge, but also a chance in the draw if you finish them all!
