Scrapbooking, Tractor Ride

TractorRide1
 
Ahh the warm colors of summer.  I used this color pallet from Scrap Friends as my starting point for this page.  Color challenges are always so tricky for me.  I have particular colors that I like to use and have a difficult time meandering away from them.  Part of it also tends to be that I don't have colors or hues in my stash that the color challenges always seem to want, but the warm colors was one I actually could make do with.
 
I am so happy with how the little pink polka-dot frame.  I traced another frame I had lying around onto some white card stock.  Then I colored it with a pink marker.  Then I took a polka-dot stamp and stamped all around it.  I am so happy with how cute it ended up being.

I also found this cute song challenge at Scrap Your Story.  I knew I just had to add the ee-i-ee-i-oh.  I didn't want to add old McDonald though because it is grandma and grandpa's farm and that would just be too silly.  I also made another vellum shaker and this one came out really well.  These shakers are starting to become an obsession!  I used washi tape to close it off and it worked out really well.  I didn't feel like getting my sewing machine out so I'm glad the washi worked out so well.

This page has some hidden journaling and another photo that I love from our little tractor ride.  I wanted to do a lot more, but my little daughter had a bad tummy bug. So, I didn't have much time or energy left to scrapbook.

Valentine's Day Wreath

Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own.  So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath.
First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!

Scrapbooking, Melt My Heart

I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash. I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two.  The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another)
I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering.  I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.

I love yellow pages.  They always make me so happy.  I made this for SWAT drill 16.  The layout sketch was a fun one to work with.  I stitched the pink cloud and then made another one out of some vellum.  At first the cloud was going to be yellow, but I wanted to make it stand out more so pink it was!  I also used some weird texture board that I had laying around and I misted it up with yellow, orange, and pink. Normally, I make my pages about the event in the picture.  This photo was originally going to tell about my daughter playing in the sprinkler, but it turned out to be more about her expression.  So my journaling was more like a little prayer for my daughter then the normal story telling. The twist for the drill was some twine.  I used it for the button and I also wanted to use it to stitch the cloud, but I only had yellow and blue twine and that wasn't working well.
