Sketch #113 at sketch n scrap was perfect for my photos of our rainy hike up to Wolverine. I created a title Cut File using a Dr Seuss quote again perfect for the theme
Quote reads,”You’re off to great places. Today is your day. Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way”
Today we managed to play tennis before it rained then went for a 2 1/2 hour hike in the rain Trying to dredge up some summer sunshine memories
Here’s a page I created for the Scrap Our Stash/ The Scrap Room challenge.. My mum is so adventurous – I think if she’d had the chance she’d have made a great pioneer. She’s been all over Alaska and many other countries and done so many cool things.
I used sketch#5 and a Cut Mania cut file
I used S ~Stickers, T ~ Tags, Tape, or Transparency, A ~ American Crafts and Arrow, S ~ Striped Print on tag, H ~ Hashtag (#), Hearts
The March Scrap Our Stash book challenge was very fun. I was inspired by the pinks and teals, the frame, the hearts, the title and the triangle banner. My gold is Dear Lizzy gold triangle washi on my banner
It’s hard to think Spring in Alaska. It’s brief, snowy, dirty and there’s lots of puddles. The one great thing about it is our days are getting much longer again and we get a ton more daylight. I do, however, remember Spring growing up in Ireland – first the crocuses and snowdrops, then the tulips and daffodils. Spring flowers really are my favorite
The new Cut Mania release is Spring and Easter themed. I’m planning on adding 10 more cut files to my store on Sunday evening – just spending some time checking the formats first.
If you’d like to be kept informed of the latest files AND get an exclusive discount you can sign up for the Cut Mania Newsletter in the blog sidebar
Today I created some pages and a card using some of the new releases – I’ll be sharing more over the next few days.
This one suits our Alaskan Spring so well – the kids used to love jumping into the dirty puddles (they probably still would but won’t admit it!). Anyway, this cut file is made of two parts, the outer circle with words and the large splash..
I had my first etsy Cut Mania sales – thanks Melinda and I just wanted to share the amazing pages she created with some of the files. I love how she really made them her own and to suit her style and projects You can check out more of Melinda’s creations on her blog or at her etsy store Just1Life2Live
On this page she used two of the same cut file to great her won design – love how the colors pop against the text b/g
love how the heartbeat page turned out – especially with the fun rainbow colors AND the cool journaling on the lines
I had a page planned with this cut file also but my cat Meow found it on my desk and chewed it up – apparently he loves long stringy bits of paper !!
When I saw the March 1st sketch at Stuck Sketches I thought that the new cut file that I created for March for my etsy store – Cut Mania would work perfectly as the circle section I took a few liberties with the sketch – I turned it upside down so the title would be at the top and replaced the 3 pieces of paper with enamel dots.
We’ve been having record temperatures in Alaska (30-40’s) and we have very little snow – just lots of ice. It’s feeling like Spring isn’t far around the corner.
I don’t normally scrap with a lot of green but in celebration of St. Paddy’s day this month and the hope of Spring here’s a green-ish page.
I used one of the new March cut files and a print and cut from my etsy store Cutmania. I’d love it if you dropped by and checked out the new items
As soon as I saw this sketch from Scrap Our Stash and the challenge from the Scrapbook Generation lucky me crop I knew it would be perfect for some of my Ireland photos. Every time we visit we spend several days in the forest parks. This is my journaling from the layout
“Ireland’s forest parks are magical places. Created within the walls of old castles or stately homes, they offer many beautiful walks. Follow the rushing rivers as they tumble over large granite rocks, or take a dip in the ice cold clear crystal pools. Climb some of largest trees I’ve seen or admire the amazing display of colorful rhodedendrons. Dappled sunlight shining through the lush foilage is so peaceful. I’m so lucky it was all on my doorstep growing up and that my children still can experience it as I did”
AND you get a sneak peek of one of Cutmania‘s (my etsy shop) March cutfiles which I used for the title
I used a doily, Echo Park paper, Fancy Pants tag and flair
Thank goodness for youtube – need to know anything – a how to video is out there.
I found this cute photo of Lauren petting a goat at the state fairs’ petting zoo. Unfortunately there were a million other kids in the photo too I managed to edit the photo to just leave the two main stars.
This page was inspired by scrappy friends challenges
this or that – I used a polaroid frame
Brenda’s wonderful sketch– replacing the filmstrip with scattered hearts
Kelly’s mood board – I was inspired by the brown, white and pink and the love theme and the wood in the kissing booth
