Scrapbook layout - MCT Designer challenge

Welcome to another "Designer Challenge" with My Creative Time.  For this challenge we had to make a scrapbook layout, smash page, pocket scrapbooking, etc. using a variety of MCT envelopes and pockets.

This layout was inspired by Lisa Diskenson, a Garden Girl over at Two Peas.  After watching THIS VIDEO, I knew I had to recreate it for this challenge.  Using the water colors was so much fun. 

I also had the opportunity to type my journaling right onto the 12x12 cardstock using my wide format printer which I LOVE ♥♥ (Canon PIXMA iIX6520)  I've had this printer for approximately two years and I have no complaints!

Remember to check out the My Creative Time blog HERE to see all the fabulous layouts that my DT sisters have created!!





Supplies:

Misc:  American Craft card stock, Recollection card stock, Recollection water color set, Stampin Up Jewels, Papertrey Ink Cardstock, Heidi Swapp black ink, Silhouette cuts, Maggie Holmes Crate Paper clips, Recollection mini binder clips, Studio Calico paper clip with fabric flag.



Thanks for stopping by my friends!!  Hope you enjoyed my layout and process video!

Hugs, T

Wednesday Inspiration with My Creative Time

Hello beautiful crafty friends!!  Today I come to you with my "Wednesday Inspiration" project for My Creative Time.  We were to create a project inspired by something......mood board, color inspiration board, a print on a rug, curtain, shirt etc.  So I chose this inspiration board from Pinterest HERE (picture below)
 
 
This is what I came up with.  The chevy pattern on the tray is what inspired the background of the card front and the polka dots on the sheer curtain are what inspired the use of embossed polka dots onto the vellum paper.  
 



Misc:  Papertrey Ink cardstock in Vintage white and Fine Linen, Stampendous Embossing Powder in Champagne, vellum paper
 
VIDEO TUTORIAL:


Hope you all have a fabulous day!!

Hugs, T

MCT Thrifty Thursday with a sketch

One of my favorite crafting things to do is follow a sketch.  Whether it's for a card or scrapbook layout, following a sketch to me is so much fun.  Sometimes, I will turn the sketch to make it work for me, like for this specific card.

Here is the sketch my DT sister Liz created for us to follow:


and here is my card:  (As you can see, I turned the sketch to be horizontal)



I also created this video tutorial on how I put it together:



Hope you all have a wonderful week......can you believe we are already in APRIL???? Oh my!!

Hugs, T
