Happy Holidays Sketchy Thursday from Scraptastic

Happy Holidays! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season and I would like to share a sketch and some inspiration. Christmas Eve was Sketchy Thursday at Scraptastic Club Blog and although I know most of you have no time right now to scrapbook, maybe just taking a break for some inspiration will be nice.
Here's the Sketch

For my layout I used the December "All I Want For Christmas Is You" kit and Add on Kit


 I love the acrylic present shapes and the little puffy trees. There are just so many cute elements in this kit. The glittery Thickers alphas made me want more sparkle so I used some Stickles glittery paint for the snowflakes. 

Christmas fun with the All I want for Christmas is You kit

Well we have eaten it ALL! ok there is alot left, but we have eaten to the point of pain. How was your holiday??? Are you ready to sit down and scrap some of those photos? Or the photos from years past maybe. I would like to share a couple of layouts that I just finished, using the "All I Want For Christmas is You" kit, Add on Kit, Stamp Set, and Digital Cut Files from Scraptastic Club.

First is this page using a photo of me and one of my bestest friends, Nancy. We were at the Galleria with the amazing 3 story tall tree that sits in the middle of the skating rink in the Galleria. I added a gold doily cut from a vellum paper from one of my past kits so that I could add a bunch of sparkly gold to my page. I stamped using the awesome alpha in the Stamp Set and used gold tinsel embossing powder. I stamped on vellum and cut it out.

here is a look at that cool stamp set

I also used the December "This Life Noted Stamp Set" and embossed and cut out

I used the present cut file from the Digital Print and Cut Files HERE

My second layout has multiple photos because we take a bunch of holiday photos and I like to use more photos on a layout lately.

I also used the All I want for Christmas is You Stamp Set on this layout but with black tinsel embossing powder.

Pinterest Monday at Scraptastic Club

It's time for another Pinterest Monday at Scraptastic Club Blog. Today Carol Monson and I have chosen a Pinterest image that has several geometric designs.
 Click HERE to see the beautiful layout that Carol created

For my layout I used the "All I want for Christmas" kit and Add on kit. I loved the look of the two triangles in the top right image that create a diamond shape and the dots between them so I recreated that design on the background of my layout using patterned paper scraps and the puffy sticker dots.

Day and Night 600

I thought of these photos right away. I love that the green triangles kind of look like the tree. And just look at this fantastic acrylic snowflake!

Home for the Holidays *DCWV

Have you seen the new DCWV Home For The Holidays Stack? Its got the perfect reds and greens that you need for your holiday photos but it also has black which I love because it seems everyone likes to wear black during the holidays in most of my photos. This is not a good photo because I was in a hurry. Lots of gift buying left to do. ;)

For my layout I used mostly the Home For the Holidays Stack, but the little piece that I cut from a journaling spot for the title is actually from the DCWV Merry Memories Stack which is also new and it might just be my favorite for this year so you will see a layout soon, I hope. I also die cut snowflakes from some DCWV white glittered paper and of course I added some DCWV gold foil patterned vellum.

and here is a close up because these papers have glittered accents that I am not really capturing well. I cut the poinsettias from one of the papers and just layered. In the upper right I added the words "love it" that I cut from one of the patterned papers that has holiday words all over.

Sketchy Inspiration from Scraptastic Club

I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season.  I have been so busy that I had forgotten to share the layout that I made for the November Sketchy Thursday at Scraptastic Club. Visit Scraptastic's Blog HERE to be completely inspired by the amazing layouts from our design team

For my layout I scrapped a layout from last November when we had breakfast with Pooh one morning. I used the beautiful November Ain't No Sunshine kit, Add on Kit, Digital Cut file, and stamps from the Feels Like Home Stamp Set and Foodie Stamp Set which I will share an image of below.

I just love this little place setting stamp and it is exactly the right size for me to punch a white cardstock Pooh to put behind the plate, so I stamped on vellum and heat embossed with gold. I might need to apologize now for how many times I will use that stamp! I also gold embossed a couple of the label image stamps. I cut the digital cut file from vellum and it works beautifully but you really have to be patient when removing it from the mat or it will tear.

Here is the Foodie Stamp set. Isn't it perfect!
