Story Tellers Club Halloween Digital Layout

In this layout I used the Storyteller's Club Digital Halloween Kit from 2007.  I practiced my blended edge again.  I am also beginning with a blank page.  I threw in the bottles from Scrapgirls Spellbound and freebies.

Halloween Digital Layout

I have recently subscribed to pixels2pages.  What a positive improvement it has made to my digital layouts.  I love this picture of my friend Alex.  I have been practicing my cutting tools with video tidbits on  I started with Creative Memories Black and White Striped Paper.  I faded the edge of the picture of Alex.  I used paper from Scrapgirls Inked paper and cut it with the flame edge from Creative Memories Rugged Digital Edges.  The letters are from Noel Digital Embellishments and I colored them to match Inked paper.  I used a CM Black and White Power Palette square frame.  The skull cane is from Scrapgirls Hallow's Eve and the dripping blood is from Scrapgirls Dem Bones.

Creative Memories Border Maker Baseball Layout

This is a 7x7 album I made for my stepson's birthday.  The Creative Memories Border Maker System really helped me do something simple and cute with a small baseball layout.  The Zig Zag Diamond cartridge reminds me a little of the baseball diamonds.  I also used Tim Holtz sizzix diecut edges to make the journaling and title boxes.
Close up.  I love putting stickers on paper and using pop dots to make them stand out.

Creative Memories Colorful Symphony Digital Layout of the Flaming Lips

More All Good Music Festival these started with a Starry Night Predesigned Pages.  I ended up changing the papers and embellishments to Colorful Symphony.  This is digital kit from Creative Memories.  The journalling could be better in most of the pages from the All Good Storybook. 
 I have recently started a trial membership to Pixels to Pages and I have learned so much.  I wish I had been a member a long time ago.  I look at these pages from just a few weeks ago and think wow!  what more I can do especially with the fonts and journaling.  However, with that said I spent a great deal of time reversing and turning and saving the flourish made of the black paper.  The words were upside down if I just reversed it.  Eventually, I got it the way I wanted it.
The Flaming Lips were quite an act.

Creative Memories Cakes and Candles Digital Layout

More layouts from my latest Storybook.  This story is my trip to the 2012 All Good Music Festival.  Both of these layouts start with click and fill pages from Creative Memories.  I always end up tweeking them, but it is the easiest way to begin a digital layout.

Creative Memories Autumn Digital Layout

When I went to scrapbook these awesome fall pictures, my traditional scrapbooking products did not do justice to the photographs.  I used one photo for the background, layered a couple of overlays and put 4 more pictures of the trees in frames.  I found the beautiful quote that just worked with the layout.

Embossed Velvet Best Wishes Card

I love these papers from TCP that I purchased at Tuesday Morning.  The velvet is so beautiful embossed.  The paper I used for the card is a shimmer paper.  Just beautiful cards that I gave in sets for Christmas gifts.

Creative Memories Divine Power Palette Hybrid Project

This gift made the recipient cry!  This is mother and daughter.  I scanned the old photos then created a digital layout using the Creative Memories Divine Power Palette.  I also threw in some pins from the Tim Holtz Distressables Embellishments.  I purchased the three disc set at Stamping Buddies on Galbraith Rd for only $30.  What a great deal!  I wasn't as sold on the Alphabet sets but I am glad I have all three. 

Here is a close up of the Prima lace and bling border, that even has little ceramic flowers.  I lined up the one flower with the center of the Divine paper flower.  I layered two flowers digitally.

Some of the quotes are from Grande Dame digital kit from Scrapgirls.  I added some real paper flowers and a bling brad.  I added some extra bling and pearls around the pin and centered a real fleur de leis cabachon on top of a digital button. 

I added this real metal flower by Pebbles and some more bling and pearls over a cluster of buttons and watches from the Tim Holtz Distressables collection and Divine digital embellishments.

The velvet and lace ribbon was sold with the top border of lace, bling and pearls.

The pin printed so realistically.

Pearl bling along side a digital pearl brad.

This is the original digital layout before the hybrid enhancement.

Love this moment! Creative Memories Enchanted layout using Border Maker System

I love this layout and this picture.  It reminds me of the best vacation ever!  And now I am returning to Sandals Grande Riveria in Ocho Rios Jamaica!!!  I did have to pay for this photo.  I ended up buying several from this photoshoot.  There were some great shots!   I used the Enchanted Power Palette including the self adhesive ribbon, sticker letters, paper flowers, printed paper and designer paper.  I also used the Creative Memories black shimmer paper and the Enchanted Photo Album accents and Enchanted Epoxy Stickers.

Here is the close up of the heart and you and me border I made with the Border Maker System.  I added paper behind the hearts to provide uniformity.  I also added the title sticker to the black shimmer paper and added pop dots.
