Welcome...Little One

Morning Crafters!

I have another layout for my personal albums to show you this morning.

I used another sketch from Kathryn's Sketch Challenge last week. This layout shows off the first moment photos after our youngest son was born. It is a "moment" layout, meant for the pictures to tell the story-no journaling required :) I pulled papers from my stash to coordinate with the colors in the picture. All of the pieces have been inked with Slate Exclusive Ink from CTMH. The "Welcome" banner is made from the same paper used for matting the base and all the layers. I stamped Welcome with Slate Ink and the Chocolate Alphabet Large stamp set. I also used small teal tile alphabet stickers from Pebbles to ad color, the subtitle and date. The embellishment clusters are also pulled from my stash. They came from another paper line but matched perfectly with the colors in the layout. Then, to add some sparkle I placed a few grey pearls.

If you would like the sketch for this layout visit Kathryn's Blog!

Happy Crafting everyone!

A note from me :)

Hi Crafters!
I have been taking some "ME" time with my crafting and working on the technical side of CTMH. I entered a challenge on Kathryn's Blog and WON! I cant wait to play with the punch and chipboard mini set! I think this one will be just for me :) I will post some for you all to see :)

Classes and Workshops  have been put on hold for the time being. All of the information for all of my events have disappeared from my hard drive. I plan to work through July to have everything ready again to kick off the new Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book. I am hoping to have a schedule posted by the last week of July. I am very sorry for any inconvenience Crafters. I will have everything back up and running very soon.

Mark your calendar! July 25 from 6-8pm is the Autumn/Winter Idea Book Release Party! I invite all my In-Town Crafters to come join the fun! I will have a small Make and Take, all of the information about the new and oh-so AWESOME Idea Book! All FREE for you! Please email me to reserve your spot so I can plan number of kits and snacks. lillypadcrafts@gmail.com

Need some inspiration?

Look on YouTube! Seriously. I love going to YouTube for layouts and other paper crafting videos. One of my Favorites is Kathryn Kreiger from Kathryn Scraps. I love her layouts and often she has sketches available so you can recreate the layout for your own albums.

This week, she posted a layout a day and had a challenge to go with each sketch. I found myself wanting to create a page for my own albums so I decided to participate this time with the "When Hippos Had Hair" sketch. I had so much fun creating this page. It features a photo of my husband and youngest son when he was still itty bitty. Dad was supposed to be putting him to bed.

The layout is complete except for the journaling (I will add that in a bit). I used papers from my stash to coordinate with the picture. I also used my 2" Scallop Circle Punch and 1 1/4" Circle Punch to help create embellishments to match. You can find the sketch and enter your own layout on her blog.

Thanks Kathryn! I had so much fun putting this layout together! Cant wait for your next video :)

Have a great day Crafters!
