Just Be Layout

Hope your week has been good. I had some computer problems and so glad to be back online. It is so amazing hooked we are to technology.  I did good after a few days of no computer but if I have to good any long, boy that would of been tough!!! LOL!

Well, I still have the scrapping bug.  This layout was inspired by the "Scrap Your Stash" challenge over at Two Peas.  The challenge was to use envelopes on a page. I had a ball finally using these envelopes I had sitting forever.  The bad news was because my computer wasn't working, I missed the deadline to submit this but maybe next time.

"Just Be" is my personal theme and wanted to make an inspiration page to encourage me.  I journaled in all the white envelopes inspirational thoughts for me. Yes, and these pics are of me. So cool for me to see me at two different time periods and how far I have grown. Oh, I need to hang this up so I can see it everyday.

Take a look!

Used Echo Park patterned paper, Crazy 8 circle punch, American Girls flowers, bling, Me & My Big Ideas envelopes, vellum envelope, and black heat embossed chipboard letters.

I just loved using these bright and happy flowers and colors.

These letters were brown but I added black glitter embossing powder, heat and that was it. So pretty!

Hope you enjoyed this very personal layout. Thanks Two Peas for the challenge.

Watercolor Paper Layouts

I few years ago, I started playing around with watercolors. I taught myself somethings and really enjoyed it. I haven't painted in a while but had a great idea. I wanted to scrap some of my anniversary pictures but didn't have the right colors of paper to work with.

So why not paint the paper?  And that is what I did! All the background papers were painted to match the colors in the pictures. I really had fun, too.  Also, I printed each of the large pictures and added my journaling on top. Another cool idea.

Take a look!

Heat embossed the words at the top and then added blue ink.

Stamped, hand cut and even heat embossed the white hearts.

Added pop dots to the letters for dimension.

Loved adding these rub-on words to the pictures.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
