Saturday Scrapbooking – Seven

Fitty-scrapbooking-seven-eleanor-12x12-birthday

This one started as a single 12×12 layout, but ended up as a double… Ya know when you have a series of pics, and you just can’t decide which ones to highlight…

Actually, I had planned on a project life spread on the other side, but it ended up like this.

The background is just some acrylic paint smeared with some watercolor splatters… and some circles with my journaling pen.  Much of the rest is layering from pieces of this and that…  And then I just embellished a bit with some rub-ons and sequins.

I can’t believe I have a seven year old. I can’t imagine what it’s like to have more than one child… and they just keep getting older and older and smarter and bigger… and… AHHHH.  I’m gonna stop right there. We would probably be in that situation, but I suppose it’s not in God’s plan for us.

So here is my process video!  It features music from my AMAZINGLY talented friend Hannah Guerra! Definitely go check out her music, it’s just gorgeous! I linked up her soundcloud down below for your convenience!

 

Enjoy!  And have a blessed Sunday!

YTLH Double Time- JULY- Sketch

The YouTube Layout Hop for July is now under way….

If you’d like to join in on the action, click here:  YTLH

It was extra special for us because Roo got to join in on the fun this month!  She did an awesome job!

The theme this month was “Sketch.”  For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s when you base your layout on a “sketch” or an outline of sorts.  This design was created by one of our members: Meital Tene Zeevi

Sooooo…  we had to base our projects off of this sketch.

Roo used some pics from last summer of her and her cousin Luke at the beach and boardwalk…  (from the same pile of pics I’m using for the Beach mini album)

I love seeing the evolving mess that occurs when she gets into her work.  lol.  And I guess it’s not so far off from what my side of the table looks like after a project…

 Roo’s layout:

Stuff Roo used:

Mists
Masks
Stamps
Washi Tape
Stickers, Stickers, Stickers…
Cardstock from Chalk it Up workshop kit

At some point she got into her sticker bin and then it was all over… anything went…  Hawaiian… Halloween… Hello Kitty…  iCarly…  and I think she even says something in her video about not caring that it’s not Halloween…

And speaking of the vid, here it is:

 

Fitty’s Layout:

And for my layout, I used a recent pic from the week before of Roo in the grass patiently awaiting  for R5 to hit the stage.

Stuff Fitty used:

Close to my heart “Chalk it up” workshop kit

Close to my heart craft heater

Heidi Swapp Texture paste
Heidi Swapp Planner embellishments
Heidi Swapp Color Shine
Heidi Swapp Mini Stencils

I used something new in this layout… Texture Paste!  Love it!  It dried pretty fast and I used it just like modeling paste.  A bit thinner and the Heidi Swapp brand I got came in a bunch of colors.  Really happy with the results!  And I even sewed through it… (don’t do that)

So you decide who stuck to the sketch best…   I think we both kinda strayed a bit…

Here’s my vid:


Both our vids have a similar intro.  We decided to get silly since Roo was joining in the fun…  But we kinda ran outta time due to the fact we were leaving for PA for four days and getting back today, so that left no editing time or uploading time.  And we all know it can sometimes take 3 days for your video to upload.  hahaha

Enjoy the weekend!

Hi… Do you like my Rainbowface?

Hey ya’ll.  It’s time for the YOUTUBE Layout HOP again!  It’s been FOREVER since I’ve scrapped. And a couple weeks ago I told myself I had to join the hop so I could get back into getting messaaaay!  (messy)

So this month’s theme is the POLKA! So I got out my accordian and played it while my legs took turns lifting eaches rescpective foot.  ( I just looked up “eaches” and yea no.. not a word..)  Lemme try again: So I got out my accordian and played it while each foot was lifted in turn by it’s respective leg!  ?  Well, anyway, you know the dance right? So this is needless and null of point! Actually, I’m not even sure if you would do that in the dance, but in any dance usually a foot leaves the floor at some point…  I should’ve looked that up too! Why am I still talking about the POLKA when that isn’t even the theme anyway!  Upon further inspection, I realized that the POLKA had some dots after it.

So this months theme is: POLKA DOTS!

Which I thought would have been easy, but I actually had a hard time at first.  I had a bunch of scraps of polka dot paper,  but wasn’t really feelin’ it.  So, I decided to involve the Silouette and cut out a bunch of holes in a 12×12 page to make it look like it was polka dotted.

Then I used one scrap of polka dot paper, and one piece of polka dot fabric to show through the holes from underneath. And TADA: Theme satisfied!

So I adhered the fabric and paper together with the good ol’ sewing machine. I went a little crazy…  But I needed some mess, it was looking to tidy.  Then I just stamped around and watercolored around… can’t say it’s my favorite layout… but I’ve learned to just keep going because your bad projects tell a story as well as the good ones.

The picture is of my daugher with a rainbow painted on her face.  I’ve posted before about her fascination with facepaint.  So ever since we finally got ourselves a kit at home, we facepaint frequently.  So this day was no different… I feel like it was snowing or raining or something…   so we just stayed in all day.

So I only used a couple little cards to layer under the picture, and then used letter stickers and wood veneer letters for the title.

I do like how some of the fabric got pushed up into the holes.  So there’s that…  ha…

So the Youtube Layout Hop involves making a video, so here is the process for this layout:

 

By the way, the word POLKA literally means Polish lady.  You’re welcome.
