Nikki Sivils It's Raining, It's Pouring

My fondness over Nikki Sivils latest lines continues. I made two (2) LOs using It's Raining, It's Pouring collection. The line has pages that provide the cheapest embellishments. What else would fit the cute collection but the pictures of my cute son. :D

Color Room Palette # 59

The Color Room is one of the sites I often visit for some inspiration. The challenges posed at Color Room always push a scrapper to go out of her comfort zone. They provide color combinations one wouldn't initially find possible.  I have joined their challenges twice already and so far I am always awed with how the color combinations turned out to be such an eye candy.

My take on TCR Palette # 59:

I cut out curves upon curves of Cosmo Cricket Earth Love and distress the edges to mimic a hill.  I also cut the trees and houses from My Little Shoe Box Whoo Loves You? - You Hoo line.

I used Prima air balloon stencil in misting using the color requirements.

Title: You Are One of Life's Miracles

Supplies: Patterned Paper: My Little Shoe Box Flying High Street; Whoo Loves You? - You Hoo; Cosmo Cricket Earth Love; AC cardstock; Alphas: AC Thickers Platforms; My Little Shoe Box Mini Alphabet Sticker Quicksand; Stickers: Hambly Studios Kraft Cardstock Stickers; Stamp: Hero Arts; Stencil: Prima; Glimmer Mists, Memories Mists.

Thanks for looking.

Once Upon A Sketch

Mr. Mojo has been generous to me lately that I have been so inspired to create one LO after the other.  I saw a challenge at Once Upon a Sketch and decided to play along.  

This is the sketch:

and my take:

I made my title using a combination of a "time" stamp by Inque Boutique and those ready to use alphas. I needed to add some typed journalling as required by the challenge. 

Title: Time spent with you is time well spent.
Journalling: If circumstance would permit, there is nowhere I want to be but with you every single minute of the day.

Materials used: Patterned paper: Echo Park For the Record; Maya Road Sheer Clock; Maya Road B/W Tickets; Quickutz Die Vine; Prima flowers; Prima clock stencil; Glimmer Mist and Memories Mist; Buttons; Ribbons (from local store); 7 Gypsies tape; Stamps: Cloud 9 Design Simple Memories; Inque Boutique; Hero Arts Manuscript

I chanced upon a challenge posed at Harmonieloisirscreatifs which requires the use of only 2 colors (but can be combined with black or white).  I thought this will qualify for the June Challenge and so I submitted it.

Echo Park Little Girl

I purchased the Echo Park Little Girl at Lasting Impression more than a month already and it took me a while to play with it.  The colors are so girly that I thought it would be perfect for pictures of my daughter in pastel attire.  While waiting for perfect pictures to match, I tried to make an LO with few remaining pictures from one of the family's summer activities.  Since the colors of the pictures are not as vibrant as the line, I went light on combining the papers.

Want to share with you what I made so far from the line.

I will be coming up with more as soon as I get the pictures to match.

Thanks for dropping by.

Sketchabilities No. 47

I chanced upon this beautiful sketch at Sketchabilities.  From an initial glance, I already felt the great possibilities of this Sketch.  It exudes lightness and merriment that I was so excited to create an LO out of it.

Based from my previous LOs, my style is more geared towards subtle and understated colors.  In this particular Sketch, I was inspired to put some colors in my LO to complement the verve of the Sketch.

Here is my take:

Title: Walk in the Park

Materials used: Patterned paper: Echo Park Summertime; We R Memory Keepers Write Out; Sizzix dies; Stamp: Cloud 9 Design; Inque Botique

Little Shop of Sketches DT Call

I have been scrapping since 2008.  During the three (3) years that I have been crazy about the craft it never entered my mind to apply for any DT call.  I was just contended self-admiring the work I created in my little red scrapbook room.

I have been visiting Little Shop of Sketches for some time now to get some inspiration.  As a thought bubble, I guess it would be nice to turn tables and be the source of inspiration for fellow scrapbookers who browse the net to get Mr.  Mojos flowing.  Little Shop of Sketches is currently looking for DTs for 2011 to 2012.  You just have to create a new layout based on their Little Shop of Sketches - Sketch No. 82.  Below is my submission to try my luck on the DT call (crossing my finger).  Who knows my thought bubble may be a reality.

My take:

Title: Time Beauty

Materials used: Patterned Paper: Echo Park Little Girl; We Are Memory Keepers Write Out; Stamp: Hero Arts Manuscript; Flowers and Bling: Prima; Other Embellishments: Maya Road Sheer Clock; Sizzix Die Doll; Doilies from Guardos (local store); MS Monarch Butterflies; Letters: Echo Park.

Thanks for looking.

Summer LOs

I still have few of Nikki Sivils We are Family and more Sofitel pictures that I needed to finish, lest the OC in me wouldn't be appeased.  Since the remaining stuff from the kit were not enough, I resurrected old stash to compliment my summer photos.

I used here Sizzix rub-ons (Splish Splash), which has been purchased years and years ago, to mimic the bubbles created from splashing the water.

Please bear with me, I still have few summer photos to make. :)

More of Nikki Sivils We Are Family

To continue on with the inspiration created by Ria and Pia's class last Saturday, I bought two (2) more of the Nikki Sivils cs with design elements and borders to complete the pictures taken in one of the family's summer activities.  I was able to make few more LOs.

I was taught that one of the basics in scrapbooking is try to make the color of the picture as base color of an LO or make the LO as coordinating as possible with the colors of the pictures.  Was I glad that the colors of my pictures perfectly matched that of the Nikki Sivils line?   Made these LOs in a breeze.

Most of the layouts here are seen with the use of negative side of the alphas because I run out of letters from the kit.  Not bad at all. :D
