Laundry Layout

image

What better way to create a layout about laundry than to create a clothesline- complete with twine and cute wooden mini clothes pins?!
I cut strips of chocolate cardstock to .75 inches and adhered them with pop dots. And, a little tip- when I glued the twine to the posts, I adhered a small strip of scrap paper over top the twine, to hold it in place. I used CTMH’s Liquid Glass to adhere the twine. The grass was cut with my cricut, in varying shades of green papers, and the clouds were stamped using CTMH Glacier ink. (I used the Rain or Shine stamp set).
Thanks for visiting! See you again soon!

Hello everyone! I’m dropping in again with a couple more spreads out of my Special Request Installment II album. I’m excited to announce I am done creating this album! Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing the remainder of the layouts in it!
I’ll be returning to creating personal layouts until more pictures arrive for a mini album I’ve been asked to create.
If you’re interested in having your own scrapbook album created- by commission- please message me. I’d love to help put your memories onto paper.
I’ll be back again soon with more scrappy inspiration!

Coloring with Shin Han Markers

Phew, who would have thought life would take over once the kids were in school full time?! I finally had the chance to sit down at 2:30, only to get back up and pick up my kids from school at 3!
There was also a long weekend here in Canada, so we took the kids camping in our own trailer for the very first time last weekend. It was cold, but an absolute riot!

Sunday, pictured above, was rainy. Thank goodness I thought ahead enough to bring books and movies and play doh for the twins to play with. I colored to keep myself entertained.

As you can see from both these layouts, I did a lot of stamping and coloring! Absolutely everything here is CTMH!

Non-traditional Christmas Spread

I’ve got two more projects to share with you today! You may recognize the second layout- I posted it last month as part of our stamp of the month promotion for August. I do believe the first spread showcases a SOTM too, but it’s from earlier in the year!
I’ll be back again soon with more scrappy goodness!

Hug Layout

Hello! Just dropping in quickly, to share these two layouts with you. Other than a few miscellaneous embellishments, everything here is either CTMH or Cricut cut!
I’ll be back again soon with more scrappy inspiration. See you then!

Count Your Blessings

I may or may not have created a colorboard from this spread. Just sayin’! I’m absolutely in love with the colors and how quickly and seamlessly this design came together! I used Blossom here again (as well as the layout below), and used some miscellaneous cling – mount leaf stamps I’ve had kicking around for ages. The ‘joys’ sticker has been in my stash for quite a while too- and it worked perfectly here!

image

I stamped more on this page- it’s all CTMH here!
I’m hoping to make it back here tomorrow! My husband is off work this week with an injury to his shoulder. Needless to say, our lives go from crazy to insane when he’s around!
At any rate, I’ll be back soon!

Roar!

Good afternoon!

I know I shared this layout previously, but I wanted to share it again. I created this layout using the CTMH Blossom patterned papers and the stamp set that comes FREE with our special this month. If you would like the Balloon Wishes stamp set, all you need to do is order the marker roll up, retailing for $21.25 CAD. See it here. Order your own marker roll up OR accessory roll up on my website, http://www.theeverydayscrapbooker.ctmh.com. This deal is available only until August 31, 2015!

Like yesterday’s layout (scroll back one post), this layout was also inspired by that adorable Siberian tiger toy. I added brown to this spread, more closely resembling this tigers colors.
I’ll be back again tomorrow with more scrappy goodness!
Have you had the chance to try out my HUESday challenge yet? Find it here! You’ll have until September 1 to play along, then I’ll post a new color scheme!

Play

…so as luck would have it, lessons are not done for the year, yet. My one daughter had the biggest melt down of her life at the pool today. It turns out she didn’t want her lessons to be over yet. So, to indulge her- and reward her for passing this level, she (along with her sister, who also passed) are enrolled in the next swimming session. Thank goodness we’ve got a week to relax before getting back at it! Gymnastics is also coming up too. Looks like “slowing down” is not in the cards for this family!

image

The Siberia tiger toy inspired the background in my layout. I cut it with my cricut explore. I also cut the title, using miscellaneous stickers and ctmh stamping to finish it off. I’m just loving this playful layout!

image

I went to town on this layout, stamping and coloring my own background. The title was cut with my cricut explore- actually, so was the frame that’s layered behind the paper doll (who is ctmh stampedand also colored in). I stamped and fussy cut a few butterflies to symbolize growth to complete the design.
I’ll be back again soon with more scrappy goodness!

Endless Summer

Good morning! We have one swimming lesson left after today, and then the countdown to school and our first camping trip of the season begins!

image

My current view right now, ha! The pool was our second home this summer.
We are taking our first camping trip on September long…we found a used trailer that was perfect for our family- we’ve been looking and saving for one for a while, and we finally brought it home on Tuesday! The twins were just tickled.

image

I have more layouts to share today, as well.

image

Except for the journaling spot and the little bird, all the stamping here is CTMH. I also cut a floral background with my cricut and layered, layered, layered paper and some printed vellum.

image

Here, I used a stencil to create part of the background and watercolored the rest. The sun and beachy embellishments are K&Co; the umbrella and title were cut with my cricut.
Enjoy! See everyone again soon!
