Jaunty Luka from La-La Land Crafts

 

Happy Friday!  This week our theme over at La-La Land Crafts is For the Boys- and I was so excited to work with Jaunty Luka.   


I stamped him on Copic Xpress It cardstiock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and cut him out with my Scan N Cut.   I colored him with Copic Markers:


COPIC COLORS

Skin: E00, E11, E21, RV10

Hat and Vest: E31, E43, E51, E74, E79

Hair and Shoes: E71, E74, E77, E79

Shirt: RV10

Pants: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99

White Gel Pen

Archival Ink- Coffee


I used papers from both Hodgepodge Christmas and Hello Baby to create my base layers.

I used the Heart Globe Die, and Vintage Bike Die to add more of a vintage feel to Luka.


I cut a circle from the Stitched Nested Circles Die and then cut the Large Clock Die and layered on top.    The clock gives me a feel of a pocket watch that is open and I love the vintage feel.


I added the Postmark Die, Notebook Border Die, Postage Squares Die and Ticket Die all to the card in various places.  

I lightly inked all dies and paper with Archival Ink in Coffee to carry the Vintage through the card.

I used the back wheel from the bike in the middle of the clock for a different embellishment (rather than the middle).

I added my sentiment on the 2nd smallest if the Long Flags, and then added a few enamel dots scattered around the card.

I love how this turned out and hope you enjoyed.

MEMORIAL DAY AT FORT LOGAN NATIONAL CEMETERY

 Hey everyone! Angela here, back with another scrapbook page to share. This month, our featured Product is Pop Tone Cardstock, and one of our themes is Patriotic. When it comes to Patriotic, I don’t think it gets any more serene than a National Cemetery like Fort Logan National Cemetery, where we visit frequently to put flowers out for my little brother.

I started by cutting a piece of Pop Tone Whipped Cream Cardstock at 8″x 8″. I then cut a piece of pattern paper down to 7 3/4″ x 7 3/4″.

Next I inked my edges of both papers with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in Chipped Sapphire. Normally used a blending tool, but this time I used a sponge. I like the soft whisps the sponge gives.

Next I cut a coordinating strip of pattern paper down to 2.5″ x 8″ and inked the edges with my ink.

I then adhered it about 2/3 of the way down on the layout.

Next I took the Pop Tone Wild Cherry Cardstock and cut a piece at 7″ x 4 3/4″, and a piece of pattern paper at 6 3/4″ x 4.5″

Once I had these pieces cut I inked them with the same Chipped Sapphire Ink Pad.

and now for the photos. I took two of my photos and cut them down to 5″ x 3 1/4″ and 2 3/4″ 4 1/4″, and then cut mats for each – sizing up 1/4″ for each. Next I inked the white mats with my inkpad.

I then adhered them to layout, slightly shifted and overlapping.

Next I took some coordinating stickers that went with the pattern paper and inked the edges. I added a brad to both of the pinwheels, and added several to the layout, along with several other stickers

I also inked the journal sticker (but have not filled out yet as I sometimes struggle for words when it comes to my brother.

and for the finished product. On a side note, in doing this post I realized I did not ink my other pinwheel but can ink it before putting in my album.

I hope that you enjoyed my page. Every time we visit, the sheer breathtaking nature leaves me speechless.

Until next time.

See you soon!

Just Chill with La-La Land Crafts

 Hey everyone!   This week our theme over at La-La Land Crafts is Clear Stamps.   For my card this week I used Just Chill - one of many Clear Stamp Sets available.   With us going into Summer I wanted a Summer Themed card so these cute Penguins made it fun!



I stamped these cuties on Copic Xpress It Cardstock and cut with my Scan N Cut.  

I colored with my Copics:

N0, N1, N3, N5, N7
E70, E71, E74
E11, 13, E15
BG10, BG13, BG15, BG18
RV04, RV06, RV52, RV55, RV63, RV66
R20
YR04, YR07, YG23, Y02, YG06, Y38

White Gel Pen

I used the Summer is Here Layering Stencil with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide - Tumbled Glass.  



I used the Scalloped Rectangles DIe - layering two together to create a slimline card.   

I then added the Sun and Clouds from the Stitched Sun and Clouds Die to add to my scene.   

Next I cut the Ice Cream and Cone Die from the Ice Cream Die and added to the top left




I added my sentiment on one of the Stitched Pennants DIe, and then added a smaller one behind.  

I used foam tape to add some dimension to the card with some of the clouds as well as with the penguins. 


Lastly I added a few enamel dots to the card.   

I love how this turned out and hope you enjoyed.

A DAY AT TOP GOLF- CREATING A FUN, MASCULINE LAYOUT

Hey Everyone! Angela here, back with another fun scrapbook page continuing on with our Masculine theme this month. Our featured product is Basis cardstock. This time I have made a 12″ x 12″ Scrapbook Layout featuring my husband hitting some golf balls at Top Golf almost 2 years ago. We attended our nephew’s birthday party and had so much fun. I have only played Putt Putt, but was not able to play along as I had just had a hysterectomy a few weeks prior and couldn’t do the twisting. Sadly this was the last time he has picked up a golf club, as later that Fall, he re-herniated a disc in his back, and ended up having his 2nd back surgery. He now has to be very careful with these movements and has not golfed since.

I started with Basis White Cardstock in 12″ x 12″ and then cut a piece of pattern paper to 11.5″ x 11.5″.

Next I cut 3 pieces of Black Basis Cardstock at: 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″, 4 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and 3 1/2″ x 4 1/4″

Next I cut a piece of the 12 x 12 White Basis Cardstock down to 5″ x 12″. When I just have 3 photos for a layout I like to use cardstock in the middle to create a focal point

Next I inked with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in Black Soot.

Next I added adhesive to the back of the White Strip and adhered in the middle of the layout.

I cut 3 pieces of Basis Sage Cardstock in the following: 4 3/4″” x 3 3/4″, 4 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and 3 3/4″ x 4 1/2″

Next after inking the edges, I adhered the black mats, to the Sage.

Now I decided I wanted to bring the Aqua out of the pattern paper a bit so I cut a strip of Basis Aqua Cardstock 4 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.

Next I used the same ink to ink the edges of my Aqua cardstock.

And then adhered to my layout.

Now it’s time to start figuring out my design.

I had these fun arrow dies from Stamp Anniething and cut out multiple in different colors.

After getting various cut out I inked the edges.

Before I put the die cuts on my page, I adhered my photos.

Now I can start laying out my die cuts

And my image- Zac Above Par from Stamp Anniething. I love how he just adds the extra touch to this layout.

I added some various enamel dots to the layout to add the finishing touches.

I love how this layout turned out and hope you do too!

Until next time my friends,
