Papercraft Business Challenge New Year Challenge!

Hello Friends and Welcome back to a new year 
and new challenges at Papercraft Business Challenge!

This month to start the New Year
the theme is Any Thing Goes!!

I have creates a double page layout with
a photo of myself which I never do!!
Its a new year & everyone will be looking 
to make changes in themselves.
While like every one I could stand to loose a few pounds, 
I truly do like myself as a person!

I encourage you all to love yourselves & try
to create about you!!
It's out of the comfort zone but well worth the effort!! 

The paper size I prefer is 8x8.  I like these little pint size books.
They are more manageable so they are picked up ans looked at more often. 

In order to make things fit, I often need to cut things in half or trim them down!
I loved these big Sparkly words but they were all bigger than 8".
A little snip and they were good to go!
This was part of a card, but again with smaller paper it was not fitting so I 
trimmed the words out and arranged them in the corner to fit!
 I added some flowers I fussy cut from the same line of paper, 
& a few enamel dots cause I love them.  Everything is layered
 at different heights with various pop dots.

The photo is an Snapchat photo that I was playing with.
Again, I rarely do those either, but her is to a new year & change!!
I fussy cut more flowers & popped some of them up.

Thank you all for stopping in -

Baby Double Layout - To the Moon & Back

Hello friends - 
as promised I am back today to share another layout with you.

Today's layout is some leftover paper and ephemera from a 
Virginia Nebel project kit.
I love the pieces that Virginia pairs together!!

This layout is still needing photos,
however they are a friends child so I wanted to 
add them after I posted here.

So just picture pictures of a baby boy in the Polaroid frames.

The Polaroid frames came in one large sheet, 
only a few were needed to the orginal project.
I added navy paper to the reverse so the words would pop, and be visible

I cut clouds out of the background paper & mounted with pop dots.
One of the cards that I wanted to use wasn't going to fit on pone page,
 so I spread it out over both pages with an overlap effect.

The moon I covered with Wink of Stella to give it a really pretty shimmer.
Its hard to pick it up on the camera but you can see it on the top left of the moon.
I also matted the cards to give them some weight on the page. 
There are also a few matte rhinestones
 to replicate the shinning stars in the night sky.

I added several matte and shinny rhinestones to the top borders.
I love when the stars twinkle in the sky & it seamed to suite this layout.
I really need to find more of these matte ones - I adore them.

Here is a close up of the other two cards that I used.
These will be perfect with the baby pictures. 
He is a week old and so sweet!  New babies are so special.
I left these cards plain minus a few rhinestones
 to tie in the shimmer through out the layout.

Back with Layouts ....

Hello friends - 
I was away for a bit with a very slow laptop
that made loading pictures painful!!

Hubby gifted me a new one for Christmas & 
I am back at it !

Here is a layout I worked on a month ago - 
before the Christmas Crazy hit anyway!

 This layout was created with the newer I am paper by Simple Stories.
I love Simple Stories as you all know - 
all of the accessories tend to match and you can use most of them together.
Which is super handy while creating & easier on the pocket book!

The layout was inspired by a layout Nicole Nowosad made for SCT.
Her layouts was a one page 12x12 similar to the one below.
Because my layouts are 8x8 - I have to make several cats and changed when trying 
recreate anything the talented ladies create.

I wanted to have a second page so I played with all of the left overs I had 
and came up with this very busy & bright page!!

The flowers were created from a layout kit instructions Nicole made.
Mine are smaller just to fit - so fun & easy to make!!
They all look so different depending on the paper you choose!

The tin/enamel dots are the We Are Family line - 
but they still match so well!!

Thanks for stopping by the check in on what I am up to - 
I will be posted more now that I can so - come on back !!
