Climb Every Mountain with Lynn

Good Morning Scrappy Friends!!
It's Lynn here today and I'm sharing another layout I did with the March/April kit.

For this layout I combined a sheet of patterned paper from Kasiercraft for the background and the rest of the products are Authentique. I love how all the goodies from the kit mix and match!! I'm having so much fun. This layout is of Ryan rock climbing. His uncle is a mountain guide and he took a weekend off to take the whole family rock climbing. I clung to the mountain because we were dangling over a river, lol. The boys had a blast though and I managed to let go long enough to snap some photos!

 I love to add stickers here, there and anywhere just for some added details.
Hope you all are having a wonderful day!! We also have a new sketch up, so I hope you can play along!!

Sorry, the photos are a bit blurry, darn phone....

How did that get in there?
A sneak of what is to come....not sure what month yet though.....


Enjoy your weekend!

Falling Fun with Laura

Hi friends!

It's Laura here sharing a new layout with you, created with the March / April kit.

Oh this kit just had so many possibilities for paper combinations,  I loved that I could achieve many looks with the same kit, it is just so fun and inspiring.  Definitely made me want to keep on creating!

I thought the zipper pull was a fun addition to the kit, Laura-Lee always puts in a funky little surprise!  Do you notice what the scalloped accent over the photo is?  Yup, bicycle stickers!  I couldn't let them go to waste since I wasn't scrapping a bike layout, I thought I would try to use them in a different way.  What do you think?

Thanks for visiting!  Don't forget to check back and see what Lynn and Laura - Lee are up to!

GR8-D4d with Lynn

Good Morning Everyone and Happy Tuesday!! It's Lynn today I'm sharing a layout I did and a step by step video showing you how my layout came together! Forgive me, I'm just learning how to do the whole video thing, I promise it will get better!!

This was so much fun to do. I used some of the Kaisercraft Garage Days collection and some of the bits and pieces of the Collectables pack. There were so many fun elements about Dads, that I dug out a photo of my husband and son on a band field trip we took to Banff, Alberta. Everytime we visit, we have to go to the Bow Falls. I never get tired of seeing them in every season.  Now... lets grab some paper, a few stamps, an ink pad and have some fun!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Next week is our sketch challenge, so mark your calendars!

Beach Fun with Laura

Hi friends!

It's Laura here and I have a new layout to share today, here is a look at it....

I am in serious heart with this month's kit it is awesome and diverse!
These papers are a blend of October Afternoon and Authentique, Laura-Lee does an incredible job of blending her kits!  I kept this page pretty clean, unlike the last few, maintaining the focus on this super close up photo of my youngest.

I hope you will pop by  often to see what Laura-Lee and Lynn are up to.

Adding grunge to grunge

Hi there!

It's Laura here today with a tutorial to share with you.

Actually, I have 2 tips in one post for you today.   First up, you know these great paper pack inserts, they showcase the patterns in each collection.

And they are just perfect for cutting into strips to add to your projects.  I am going to use this piece on my card.

You guys all know how much we love grunge at Boys Rule, right?  Well I am going to show you how to add a little extra grunge to your grunge.

This Garage Days collection from Kaisercraft, that was included in this months kit, is a really great grungy line.  

 But I wanted a little more grunge, so I took this die cut that I will be adding to my card, and crumpled it up, giving it some really great distressed edges and folds.

Then I ran it across my ink pad along every crease that I created.

Have a look at this, doesn't it look great?

I repeated this process for the strip that I cut off the  packaging insert.

Now I will share my card with you...

I love the way it turned out and I hope you do too, why don't you give it a try!
