Play Group Page and U ROCK WSOTG....

This is the fun layout we did for play group last night...the super fun thing about this page (other than using the Jingle Kit..which I LOVE) were those special Blush B&T duos :) Using the technique featured on this months CTMH TV episode called "Embossed Resist". I used the My Acrilyx Stamp Set "Spot On", CTMH Clear Embossing Powder, and Blush Ink (some used the Juniper/Creme Brulee depending on the paper they received in their kit). Inking the area with the Rubber Brayer (pg 97). It took some time to emboss that much space...BUT  LOVE the results! Other CTMH Stamp Sets used are "Chocolate Alphabet Large, Friendship Alphabet small, Hodge Podge Alphabet, and this Months Stamp of the Month "Piece of Cake" (so cute) Which we also embossed using the CTMH Black Embossing Powder, Cranberry Ribbon, White daisy Ribbon, and those cute little Tulip Brads you see in the corners...well they are my 'fake' but look real brads...I knew I wouldn't have enough brads for 14 they are hole punches (yup!) then coated in a nice round dollop of liquid glass for the bump and the shine....SOOO cool! :) I found that little trick in an old Creating Keepsakes Magazine from a few years ago! lol! The layout was inspired by Helen Onulak's darling layout using the Jingle Creative Basic's paper...oh and if you do check out her link also check out her YouTube Video on why CTMH Clear Acrylix Stamps are "Clearly The BEST!" ..cute! cute! 

Anyway...after checking out Helen's layout...I went immediately to my  Imagines Book page 96 and WALA!!! There is the cutting guide :) I love these Idea Books...(Imagine, Cherish and Reflections...LOVE them ALL! and use them TONS!!) Had so much fun making this layout..I can't wait to make the 2nd page and put "the SWEETEST" pictures on them...If you wanna come play..or just make a layout...leave me a comment!

U ROCK Work Shop On The Go

Now on to the U Rock WSOTG Layout...I love this paper (I know know...I ALWAYS love the paper!)  but I really loved the bright busy-ness of was a challenge for me to put it together :p This is what I came up with. I wasn't a total fan of the layout provided in the Work Shop Guide and I am HORRIBLE at following exact instructions...I always change I love it when the ladies at play group do too...;) So I came up with is part of the Pattern provided in the guide and flipped...then I added the 'Rockin' New Year (because I have fun rockin' new year pic's of my kiddos). I love the music notes :)

(<< I love it!!!)
Using the Stamp set in the kit..."Just Be You". I once again used the Embossed Resist technique...which I will probably do A LOT from now on!!! Better stock up on clear embossing powder! I stamped the "Rockin' New Year" with the Poster Board Alphabet in Outdoor Denim Ink, then using the Just Be You Stamp set in a random order stamped the images to be Embossed with clear embossing powder...then after the whole EMBOSSING thing...inked the whole title with Goldrush Ink using my beloved sponge. LOVED how it turned out...can't wait to add my photos :)

Happy Scrappin' and Stampin'!
