Joy on Highway 49 - Show Us Your Stuff

The December challenge over at Show Us Your Stuff is to use the word 'Joy' in a layout.

 Rather than going for a Christmas theme I thought I would use the theme in connection with a photo of my grandson who loves my next door neighbours motorbike.

As the layout was motorbike related I decided to go with a distress, grungy, dirty sort of theme as you will see.

Here as some close up photos:
 I used the metal plate several times across the layout as I love it!
 I rubbed my inky fingers on the layout to add smudges.
 I love using masks
I also used ephemera on the layout

I used the following on the layout:
AC Thickers - Cinnamon - Silver
AC Thickers - Giggles - Blue and White
Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black
Creative Expressions - That Special Touch Mask - Chicken Wire
Bazzill Bling - Orange 12 x 12 cardstock
Visible Image - Metal Plate stamp
Tando Creative - Grab bag - Stars
Paper Artsy - Squiggly Ink - Swirls & Curls 3
Cosmo Cricket - Cogsmo - Black Chipboard
MAMBI - Sheets - Pad 229
White Gesso
Tyre track ribbon

I hope you enjoyed looking at my layout.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.

Generations - Creative Scrappers #257


This is the latest sketcth from Creative Scrappers and this is what I made of it.  I am normally a 'messy scrapper' and by this I mean I don't go for 'clean and simple' pages as a norm.  I thought I would challenge myself to do a 'clean and simple' page for a change.
I really love my layout as it is a bit different to what I normally put together.

The photo shows 3 generations of my family: myself, my son and my grandson.

I used the following to put this layout together:

Simple Stories Say Cheese - Magic
AC Thickers - Amy Tangerine - Hello - Brown
Tando Grab Bag - Stars
Sassafras Lass scraps
Core'dination embossed spots
Tape - Check/Gingham
Distress Ink - Worn Lipstick.


Hat Hilarity

I havent done much scrapbooking in the last 6 months or so, but I am back at it now.  As every my grandson is my favourite subject and I have a backlog of photos waiting to be scrapped.

I put this layout together using Sketchabilites sketch #104 below and Clear it Out challenge.

As you can see I rotated the sketch to left and used elements from the sketch such as the banner and creating my own background.

Here is what I made of it.

 I used the following to put the layout together:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock
Scraps of Sassafras Lass paper
AC Thickers Alphas - Delight Red
AC Thickers Alphas - Niki Riki Yellow glitter
Maya Road Mixed Triangle Banner
Glitz Designs - Purple Camo paper
Imaginisce - Snag 'Em stamp - Seed Packet
Prima - Artists stencils
Modelling Paste
Distress Inks - Worn Lipstick
                       Tea Dye
                       Brushed Corduroy
                       Faded Jeans

I hope you like it.
