The DiPenta Project: Part 4 {Military}~

Today with the DiPenta Project I am showcasing layouts that feature a Military Theme.
If you missed my previous posts about the DiPenta family project that I have been working on you can find them here:

The first layout is a double layout. There are closer shots of both sides of the layout a little later.
Some of you may already know how hard it is to find patterned paper and embellishments that suit Canadian Military photos. Most military embellishments out there are very red, white and blue.
I knew going in that I would be creating using more generic patterns, and adding lots of texture instead.


For this layout I used a neutral map patterned paper, and added in texture using May Arts Ribbon, cork and brads. I even recreated a red, white and blue medal embellishment with ribbon.



I also found some great vintage vellum embellishments from Tim Holtz.



I had these great cork letters in my stash, which really seem to work.



My second single page layout features photos of Paratroopers.
I kept with a similar colour theme.


I used a gold metal tape to add a little shine.



Lots of tags, and more of those vellum embellishments.


Thanks so much for stopping by to check out more of the DiPenta Project!

My Creative Scrapbook: August Reveal Day #1~


It is that time again!! The summer months are quickly slipping away!
I hope everyone has been enjoying some nice weather, where ever you might be. Plus, I hope you are out making those memories and taking taking lots of photos to document later!

This month I got to design with 2 of My Creative Scrapbook's beautiful kits. So I decided that I would showcase one layout from each kit to begin this month's reveals.
My first layout is created using August's Main Kit.



Main Kit:
Carta Bella's Soak Up the Sun collection: patterned paper, chipboard stickers
Pink Paislee's Atlas collection: patterned paper, intsa kit and stickers
Heidi Swapp Wood Veneer Words
Ribbon


This layout in particular is made using mainly the Pink Paislee, Atlas collection of patterned papers and embellishments.



Once I saw the collection I knew I had at least one perfect photo to scrapbook with it. Days earlier we took this photo at the airport of Margaret just before she was to get on a plane to head to Quebec for french camp.


This second layout is created using the Creative Kit.



Creative Kit:
Fancy Pants Designs' Summer Fun collection: patterned paper, flair, brag cards, gold foil paper and letters
My Mind's Eye's On Trend collection: patterned paper
Dear Lizzy Embellishments
Clothespins
Ribbon


This collection has fabulous hints of gold, which I LOVE!

Sketches in Thyme: July Week 3 Reveal~


It's Reveal Day at Sketches in Thyme!
It's week 3 of their weekly sketch challenges. Each week a new sketch to inspire and get your creative juices flowing.
Here is the layout that I created based on this week's sketch.


Here is the sketch that I based my layout off of.


I created my layout using patterned paper and embellishments from the HomeMade collection from Pebbles Inc.
This collection had just enough glitz and glam to go with Margaret's New Years Eve photo!


I adore this glittered title!!
I picked up this pack of gold glittered titles while at My Stamping Studio.


Thanks for stopping by to check out my creation!

May Arts Ribbon: Ribbon Scraps Blog Hop~

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Today the May Arts Ribbon Ribbonista's are hopping along together to showcase some quick and easy ideas to use up your Ribbon Scraps!
We all have them, tiny shards of your favourite ribbon stashed somewhere in your craftroom.

My self, I have a large jar in my craftroom, where I keep all of my beautiful May Arts Ribbon scraps.
All of the scraps in the jar are under 12" long. So I just dug in and picked a variety of bright colours to create my card.


I wanted to create a bright and cheerful starburst sort of look.
Here are the ribbons I used:
3/4" Green and Orange Chevron
1/2" Knotted Edge Satin in Teal and Red
Large White Pom-Pom


Then I added some great red glitter letter stickers from Anna Griffin, a button and some sequins.


Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my Ribbon Scraps creation.

Pocket Letter Creations #2~

Today is just a simple share of a couple of Pocket Letters that I had recently created.
I love using up the last bits of kits or collections, making a Pocket Letter. You use up those small pieces of patterned paper, those random stickers that you just could not use on your scrapbook pages, and those journal cards that are just too cute not to use.



The second PL I created for someone that is creating a Sock Monkey PL for me too!
I must say, I kinda LOVE this one!
I even got to use some adorable paper that a VERY good friend gave me!


Thanks for stopping by!

Layout Frenzy Creations~

Today I am sharing 3 layouts that I recently created while at my very first Layout Frenzy at My Stamping Studio in Windsor.
I was itching to make it to one, as friends had been and had a great time. So finally it worked with my families schedule. Generally what happens at a layout frenzy is, in 6 hours you create 4 double page layouts. You are given sketches and actual samples created using the sketches.
I knew this going in, so I prepared and brought lots of photos, including ones that would work great as a double page layout. That didn't quite happen, I got into the store and was inspired by papers that just did not go with my multi photos. I went in a different direction. I created 3 single layouts, Shelley and I had to leave a little early so I packed up before starting my 4th layout.


My first layout is created using the beautiful Fancy That collection.
I love it's beautiful golds, and muted tones.


I also added my title word lovely, a sticker from Pink Paislee.




My second layout was created using the Life Documented collection from Simple Stories.
Great fun colours that could be used for so many every day moments.


Another title sticker was used from my Pink Paislee stickers.
I also added some scalloped May Arts Ribbon, and a Prima Marketing flower.




My final layout was created using patterned paper and die cut embellishments from Crate Paper's, Open Book collection.
LOVE this collection, it's just SO pretty.


I love those hints of shimmering gold.
