Weekend Inspiration

Fantastic layouts to share with you today from Taryn and Kim

Firstly from Taryn...

Again this month I have used the mam-razzi papers... the neutral colour scheme is just so versatile! Here's another layout I created to document Will's enthusiasm for anything boyish. The boy is unstoppable!!! And ever so lovable.

To co-ordinate with the Bo Bunny Mama-razzi papers, for this layout, I used:

The blue rhinestone stars really help lift the layout.

How special is the little star charm??

I hope you like the mama-razzi as much as I do!

From Guest DT Kim ...

My layout titled FIRST SHOES (tee hee ...and my new favourite) I chose the phonetics paper and mytype from Apple jack as well as the Co ordinations cardstock in cardinal. I used the back of the my type paper and trimmed it and the cardstock to fit inside the letters on the phonetics paper. I then used some of the card stock to cut some triangles to create the banner and sewed them into place using my machine.

I used a couple of the decorative edges from the Sassafrass paper and mounted one with foam tape to form a border at the bottom. I then grabbed one of the scrapware chipboard signs and tied on with rafia the boy's cap charm and the lollipop charm, I pop dotted the sign too for added interest.

I added some cream pearls and an apple charm and finished with two different styles of lettering for my title. I used the Jenni Bowlin chalkboard stickers and American craft foil thickers in cherry. I find creating a title with different letting styles and fonts really creates an impact!

And here is one layout from me ...

Of my son's naming ceremony OMG way back 12 and a half years ago. Sorry for the quality of the photography didn't matter what conditions I took it in, still came out yukky!

I used core dinations snowflake cardstock and sprayed it with Graphite glimmer mist.
Also used our white and black felt scroll hearts and Websters Pages Life's Portrait Reflections (my favourite of the range)

an upclose of the title using a Scrapware Fancy Bracket which I heat embossed with glitter black. The letter stickers are from Rusty Pickle I love these stickers, you get 9 of most of the letters in different sizes. Once these stickers are gone that's it, no more since Rusty Pickle is no longer in operation (:

I cut some of the frames off the pattern paper and raised a few of them with foam tape to give some dimension. Also our black gardenias from the nature pack and clear black rhinestones

Our 100% boys ribbon, black silicon ribbon and white ric rac. I randomly punched holes through the other side of the pattern paper, an idea I got off Scrapperlicious's blog some time back. I love the effect and perfect for boy pages

Hope you all have a fantastic and creative weekend

I am off to attempt to complete at least 1 of the 5, yes five OTP's I am working on ... crazy I know, I get an idea in my head and off I go and while working on that one my mind wonders and next minute another one has been started!!! I think I need therapy ... does anyone know the number of Scrappers Anonymous
