Crate Paper sketch challenge

Crate Paper is having a sketch challenge. The sketch is quite challenging because it has a lot of blocks where you can play with lots of photos. But I opt to focus on a single image and use the other blocks for embellishment. It's good to know that we can use old releases of Crate Paper that's why I gave it a big go to do the challenge.

Here's the sketch and my take on it.

This is my sister( left) and our first cousin whom we dearly adore for her kindness and generosity.

I used here: Corrugated board and die cut it using Accucut die. Crate Paper Bliss Collection, Prima Flowers, AL buttons, stickers, Adorn It mini alpha stickers, BG lpha stickers, AAS foam alphas, pps stash, craft wire

August Cosmo Cricket Challenge at Let's Scrap

I found this challenge at Let's Scrap. I knew I have very few pps at my stash. So after rummaging at my paper stacks I found only four pps and I have to see what can I come up with these few using the sketch below. I only used the right side of the sketch.

After looking for the perfect pictures that will compliments the papers, This is what I ended up with my layout. I made a lot of hand-cutting the flowers from Material girl pp.

Materials used here:Cosmo Cricket pps- from Material girl, Wanted and Souvenir collections, brads, Martha Stewart Deep Edge Puncher, AAS foam alpha, Bee Puffy sticker

Me at 41- SC August Color Challenge

Once again, I'm joining the weekly challenges at SC (Scrapbook Challenges). This time I chose to make a layout based on the color combos below. I did some punching on pp for the bricks effect on my layout using Sizzix paddle punch, a tool that I haven't used for a long time and now I can see the flexibility of this tool, something that the other punchers can't do.

Here's the full view of my take this challenge.

Materials used here: Beige Cardstock, BG Stella Ruby pp, DCWVMariposa,AC glittered chipboard alphas, TimHoltz journaling ticket, Prima flowers, trimming, paddle punch, Martha Stewart Deep edge puncher, Fiskars edge puncher

This is how I made my flower embellies for this page. I used here flower puncher, some stamens and brads.

MME blog challenge #14- and HM flowers tutorial

My Mind's Eye has another blog challenge for this month. It's a sketch by Anam Stubbington. Here are the rules: Use ANY My Mind’s Eye products (current or past) as long as your project has at least 80% My Mind’s Eye products. I must admit, I have a very few papers of MME and most of them are all from past collections. But since the challenge does not limit us to use the current collections, so I decided to join again in their challenge.
Here's the sketch.

But first all, despite the limited MME products on my stash, I'm very happy to share with you what I've came up with my layout using those few old MME pps and a negative of Bohemia embossed chipboards which I also used in my layout. I made my own flower embellishments using the design of MME Magnolia pps. Please scroll down to see the pictures below that will show on how did I turned a flat flower design into a dimensional one.

So Happy Together

I used here: MME pps ( Out and About, Magnolia) Corrugated board, Negative of Bohemia Embossed Chipboard, trimming, rub-on, sticker, Acrylic paints and Tattered Angels glimmer mist.

I cut the flower design of MME pp.

I cut out the circle at the center of the flower.

I divided the scalloped edge petals into two and put some pleats in each petal to give contour on the petals andglued both ends.

I cut the blue dotted edge of the circle and rolled it to make center of the flower.

I glued the first layer of petals into the circle paper and layer it with another set of petals. And here it is, my own flower embellishment.

I added leaf at the bottom.

With this one, I punched six flower daisies to form the center of the flower.

Color Room #16- July Challenge

This is my first time I've joined the Color Room challenge. I took the color challenge #16 last July and below is my take on it. TFL!
