Shhhh...DH's Christmas present!

this is a floating frame I did up for my DH for Christmas using an ....wait for it...LOL...Allison Davis sketch :) It's from the sketch support class I took. The frame is not what I really wanted size wise but this was the closest to a 12X24 I could get at my Michael's it's a 16X20. Ali did one in class and it was 10X26 but my stores had nothing like that. I did some adjusting to my pics from the original sketch. I trimmed my 4X6s on the top a bit, trimmed down my 6X4 on the far left top-because I had the added length in height I didn't use smaller pics but larger on the bottom. I LOVE how this turned out. PS the picture is with a carpet behind it just so it would show up a bit. Due to the fact that the frame is very thin I only used paper heart buttons for the flowers, I wasn't going to add any embellie because I did want the flowers but I couldn't think of a flower center and couldn't have them nakie! Then I remembered my sizlets dies for buttons! Yippeee! I also added some Making memories metal words because they were perfect for this...two of them I had to sand the original paint off them because it was a turquoisey green...totally didn't go in my opinion. Remember you can click on the pic to get it bigger!
I think I'm hooked and want to make more of these! Hopefully I will eventually find a more rectangular frame like the 10X26 one that Ali had found.
Thanks for Looking! :)Have a great weekend!

More Scrapbook Generations Layouts and a card.

First a little card to put you in the holiday spirit...are you feeling it yet? I am just getting into the mood after purchasing some of my family gifts...still have the hubby and DD to shop for but it's nice to get the majority of the family's stuff done.

Okay onto the Layouts I'm trying to catch up on posting these so I can get them into my albums.
This first one is DD playing in the park on a warm evening back in September...I love that her free spirit shows in these pictures! I pretty much followed the sketch on this's from Book Six. I did however add some word stickers (that I love!) to it. I probably would have stitched that circle but it stood out pretty good do to the contrast. I may go back and do it anyway...a girl has a right to change her mind after all! I did add stitching to the Title and stickles too! There is journaling on the back of the tag telling DD how much fun Daddy and I had with her and the date.

Next up is DD in her Halloween costume ...entitled "Tinkerbell" :) I made the title and backed it with double sided tape and then put the back on and then applied glitter to the top and then rubbed it in. I further embellished with some Somerset 3D stickers. This Layout is from the August 2010 free downloadable sketch you can find on Ali's blog you can find it on the right hand side under downloads (Printable sketches)
I changed up the two smaller pics on the top left and the bottom right and put in a 5X3.5" pic in each of those two spots, I also left off the strips of paper on the left side of the LO and substituted them with a nice Zva rhinestones which might be hard to see in my pic (click on the picture of the LO to enlarge) but I wanted to add to the "Pixie Hollow" feel like a forest. I also added a little punched border to give it a more feminine feel. I took some perfect pearls and mixed them with water and then took a toothbrush and flicked on spots all over the black Background paper to give the look of fairy dust. I also added some large glitter chunks that fell off the Prima butterfly and some bling! Therefore I wrote my journaling in a metallic gel pen so as to add to and not cover up too much of the effect. I added a quote from her Tinkerbell book "Always follow your dreams" and layered it up a bit too. That is a long description for this LO but I hope you can appreciate all the added little details.

And one more LO using that same sketch...only this time I added a ton of handmade flowers that I made to look like Dandelions, DD picked them all summer long...every time she went out for a walk. And I added one other handmade flower for fun and for contrast.

And I will leave you with that today...I have more to come yet! Thanks for looking!

More Scrapbook Generation sketches

:) Of course more SG sketches...can you tell I love them?? I love them even more since I took Ali's sketch support class! So here's one from book 3 I did. I took these pics of DD...I just wanted a photo with her glasses on but she got all DIVA on me LOL Hence the first pic with her hand up to the camera! LOL I used less pics than the sketch called for...I knew that embellie would take up room. I had all the title and embellies made a while back and nothing was jiving so I put it to the side. I made that embellie up myself on my Silhouette...LOVE it! So much fun to do!

This next one is one I LOVE! I converted the two page sketch to a one pager-Ali did this one in class and I thought it turned out so sharp I wanted to give it a go! A perfect one pic page I thought! Of course I did different embellies and less of them because I had made this journal box up for this LO a while ago and "felt" it until the other day when it came together (I love this one!) ...and how can you not love this pic...I just want to give her a big squeeze every time I see it...she was having a meltdown over having a Glass Christmas ball taken away from her while we were trimming the tree. Poor little Boo Bear!

As always you can click on the pics to make them bigger and THANKS for popping in to have a look!

A couple More Scrapbook Generations Sketches

I have a bunch of stuff I need to organize and photograph that I have done recently so I'll start with these two that are hot off the sketches LOL. The first one is when DD first got her Jumperoo...she looked so cute and very happy with it. I changed up the pic sizes and to compensate I moved around the papers a bit, this one is from my New Volume 4 Sketchbook!And without further ado... I give you..."JUMP BABY!"

Next up is a LO from last year...I wanted to do the December Daily and had it all laid out and then my comp. crashed with all my journaling so I am just getting around to doing this now. It's us preparing for Christmas, putting up the tree.
This is also an Ali Davis/Debbie Saunders sketch it's from the Volume six sketch book...I took and altered up the sketch and I hid my journaling (which if you know me you know I love to do!) I put it under the little snowman...which was off of one of DD's gifts so I thought that was cool that she will be able to read swings open on a brad and I created a back so I could do my journaling. The wreath and the little vine is some wired Garland I bought that I thought was cool. The papers are an mix of 7 Gypsies, Tim Holtz (Lost and found), Graphic 45. and Bo Bunny. :)If the picture appears blurry to you it's actually a photoshopped pic to look dreamy. :) So here it is..."Deck the Halls"

Like I said...I have more so I'll be back soon!

Some random stuff...

So I finally got ink for my printer again...going to try not to run out of ink again...of course I can blame Allison Davis and her mom, Debbie Sanders, for that LOL! if their sketches didn't make it so fun and easy to make LOs I wouldn't need ink so frequently. :) Okay so on with the LOs.
First we have "First Smile"...just a fun little page I put together...wanted to make the chandalier. This was a pic I have scrapped in other misc. collage type LOs in the past but I wanted it all on it's own since it is one of my favorite pics...DD smiling at about a week old and then she gave me big smiles every morning after that when I came to get her out of her crib.

Next is just a couple of pictures that I needed to get scrapped...I am trying to get my books caught up so I have to go back and chronologically fill some of the gaps. I was happy how this LO turned out in the end!! Who says less is more?? Sometimes More is More!

Again this is another photo I had scrapped in my DD's first month page but never scrapped it on it's own and since it was the first time she rolled over it was important and needed it's own page so there you have it!

Next we have one of the Allison Davis (Debbie Saunders) Sketches that I did a long while ago but needed to print the pics for...I actually have quite a few more in my pile of "to print" pages on my desk.
I cut all the trees and fences with my Silhouette, everything is nice and inky too :)
This page was all about how DD pronounces the different animal sounds...she can't talk but there is just about no animal she can't make the sound for! LOL

And then we have this one...fresh off the press, it was for my final week of Ali's sketch support class, I converted the sketch to a one pager and flipped it on it's head and added many finishing touches to it...basically I had fun with it! I couldn't resist taking this pic of my DD because her hat was POPPING off LOL but she still looks adorable don't you think?? I mean how can you resist that smile?!

Thanks for looking!! Have a fabulous day and I'm sure I will have more to post real soon...I just have to sort through and more importantly I want to get some scrapping done because I just got my new sketch books- book 5,4, and 3!!! YIPPEEEE!! Here's hoping I get several dozen out of them as I did with book 6! :)
