Day 228: Happy Adventure Disney Layout

When I saw this adorable 2 page Sketchy Friday sketch over at Scrap Much? I knew I wanted to use my Simple Stories Say Cheese 2 papers.
I painted swatches of gold onto the background cardstock with my watercolor paints. Then I splattered black, gold, and red paints onto the layout bases before layering on the adorable papers.
I stamped on the big circle from Doodled Designs before layering on the coordinating Simple Stories stickers. How cute is that gold foil?
I used some pieces with banners already printed into the design, some banners I cut from other patterns, and some washi tape trimmed into a banner. I love how my Disney pages are coming out with this adorable paper line!

Day 227: Holiday Expressions Blog Hop

Welcome to the Holiday Expressions Blog Hop. We are featuring festive new products from the new Holiday Expressions idea book. You may be arriving here from DARLYS'S BLOG. Let's hop!
I decided to focus on the new Picture My Life White Pines cards. Working with the new Paper Issues Sketchy Saturday sketch, I filled the spaces with the snowflake themed cards. I added a strip of another card along the top of the large snowflake card.
I slid a White Pines Complements sticker behind the small leaf card and added the photo date. I used the Fundamentals Enchantment stickers for the first part of the title. Then I stamped and cut out the SNOWMAN letters using the Hopscotch alphabet stamp set.
I added a scattering of snowflake stickers from the White Pines Complements, and topped them with red enamel gems and bitty sparkles. It was a lot of fun to make a "traditional" scrapbook page with pocket scrapbooking cards!

Next up on the hop is JENNIFER'S BLOG. Be sure to hop all around to see all thirty consultant's fabulous Holiday Expressions creations!

Day 226: Christmas Love Card

It's Monday, and that means it's time for another Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!
I used the October SOTM, Twinkle, on my version of the sketch. I embossed a Colonial White cardstock panel with the Confetti Embossing folder. Then I layered on some White Pines paper and Glacier cardstock. I added a sketchy circle with Doodled Designs in Cashmere ink. 
I stamped the large ornament in Glacier ink, then filled in the stripes with shimmer gel pen. I stamped the Christmas Love sentiment twice, in Cranberry and Cashmere inks, then layered the two together. The small ornaments and white stars are from the White Pines complements. I finished off with a few red enamel gems. I hope you'll hop on over to Atlantic Hearts and play along this week!

Day 225: Joy Twinkle Wreath Card

Tonight I'm sharing this pretty wreath card using the October Stamp of the Month
First I stamped the double star circle image to help even space my lightbulbs. Then I stamped a layer of red and green bulbs right over the star images, touching the outer ring of stars. 
I stamped and fussy cut a bunch more red and green lights, adhering them over the inner ring of stars and adding foam tape to all the red bulbs. I hand stitched the red details using two strands of red sewing thread. The JOY sentiment was double stamped, once in Glacier ink, then again in Cranberry ink before I added clear shimmer gel pen over the top. 

I'm linking this card up to the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown October Sketch challenge. Thanks for stopping by!

Day 224: Merry Everything Twinkle Card

I am just loving this adorable October Stamp of the Month!
I stamped a Colonial White card base with the Merry Everything sentiment repeatedly in 2nd generation Cashmere ink. Then I added it again just once once in Cranberry ink. The papers to fill in the card are all White Pines, and the snowflake border came from the White Pines Complements. 
I wrapped the card base in baker's twine before adding a bow topped with a red enamel gem. Quick, simple, and merry everything indeed!
