Facebook Challenge-Return to an Older Collection!

Last month (February), the challenge at NicoleJones911's Facebook group was to use product from an older collection in your stash. Facebook Group Link I went with my collection of Capture Life from Echo Park.  I love this collection but have not used much from it.

I love the heart film slides paper and decided to create layout with it. I grabbed some  photos of my cats loving on each other. It went together simply.

I supplemented the Capture Life collection with some brads and buttons from different Teresa Collins collections and American Crafts Thickers. However, I did use the stickers from the Capture Life that were "too cute" to use before this layout.  I really enjoyed the challenge using up an older collection!

Have a marvelous Friday! ~Tisha

Pink Paislee-Bella Rouge Layouts!

What could be more delightful than playing with the beautiful papers in the Bella Rouge collection? Well, creating two layouts of my sweet sisters and Mom!

First Up:

Nevermind the crazy photos, Mom is used to this. :)  I really started this layout from some leftover packaging materials! At a crop last year, I had used a stencil to make some pink hearts with modeling paste. Before cleaning my stencil, I laid it down on the packaging that paper collections come in to rub the excess paste off. Later that night, I discovered I loved that piece of plastic with pink hearts and kept it. :)

 So it became the starting point for these photos of my sister and I being silly with our sweet momma! Along with these darling flowers in the collection!

It is playing with paper and embellishments that keep me up way too late at night!

Second Layout:

While I had all the Bella Rouge papers out, I went ahead and scrapped this old 5x7 photo that was tucked away in a book. I thought the colors in the photo went perfect with this collection!

I used some crinkled tissue paper behind the layered papers and then offset the photos with a column of the diecuts from the collection. The top heart is originally white, but I needed a bit of black there for balance. I painted over it with Black Heidi Swapp Mist and quickly rubbed it so the silver foil would show.

Of course, used some more of those adorable flowers! Then I finished the layout with sewing a thin strip of paper to the top and bottom.

I am just loving the black, gray, and pinks of this collection. Oh, so yummy!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Wednesday.

Winter Layout Share

We enjoyed our recent snow days and being tucked away inside our little home. I played in the craft room one day and pulled a photo from the 2012 snow storm to scrapbook. I used bits and pieces from different collections for this layout. I knew I wanted to keep color to a minimum for my snow page. 

I used two different white cardstocks for the background. I trimmed a white swiss dot cardstock to go on top of a white canvas texture cardstock. It is difficult to see on photos, but makes a nice presentation.

My color choice was navy to offset the gray, silver, and white. I had some leftover Teresa Collins Urban Market tags and buttons. I love the contrast the elements made with the white and night snow pictures. I painted the wood veneer stars with tinsel mist for a lovely dark gray color.

I punched some vellum circles to add randomly across the page for a little extra softness and cut the Urban Market tags in half to use both tops and bottoms on the page.

I was thinking I should have taken my snowy layout outside to photo against our snowy background.  But I was too comfy in my pjs to do that! Ha!

Have a marvelous week!  ~ Tisha
