Back 2 Skool with Laura - Sketch Challenge

Hi there!

Laura here sharing a brand new sketch challenge, created by yours truly!

I can't even tell you how much fun I had creating this page, sometimes they just come together like a dream, just like you pictured in your head, this was just like that!

I used a lot of Bo Bunny Papers along with a Fancy Pants pocket and a great Crate Papers chipboard frame. I wanted to punch the edge of the Fancy Pants pocket so I flipped it over, since the back was taller than the front. 

The wooden star was natural until it was on the my craft table at the same time as y chalkboard paint! As was the apple, but that got dolled up a bit with some Copic markers.

I had fun with the black Doodle Bug alphas and the number 2 is fromt he Bo Bunny sticker sheet.

I darken up the wooden globe just a bit with some Tim Holtz distress ink.

I also added some inky stars using a Tim Holtz stencil  and  did a bit of stamping with an old Bo Bunny stamp I had that sort of looks like hockey netting, or maybe fish net.. whatever!

Here is the sektch, I hope you can play along!

Here is Laura-Lee's take on the sketch!!

Gr. 4 Rulz with Laura

Hi there!

Laura here and it is my turn to share a project today, I have pretty much just started wading into this current kit and am loving it so far.  I can see a ton of possibilities for pages!  Although my first few projects are back to school related, this kit really is super flexible.  The school-ish papers have great alternative B sides if you wanted to do something other than school.  Plus there are so many other papers and embellishments that are just great everyday boy pages.

Anyway, here is my page:

I had some fun adding some colour to my background with some Distress Ink, and then stamped and heat embossed some dark blue stars just because I felt like doing something a little messy. Then I layered up some Bo Bunny die cut shapes and that great Fancy Pants library pocket, no patterned paper (other than my base) was harmed in the making of this page! lol ;) Lastly, I added on a bunch of stickers and some bling.

Here are a few close up photos:

School Days with Lynn

Good Morning and Happy Monday! It's Lynn here today and I would love to share my first project using the Sept/Oct 2014 kit!
 I'm trying to go back and scrap some older photos of my son Ryan. This one goes way back to 1998 when he started kindergarten. The BoBunny Pop Quiz patterned papers and stickers were just the thing I needed. I had this idea to use the library pockets from Fancy Pants to go across my page but it needed something a little bit extra. That's when I decided to cut out some of the library pockets from the patterned BoBunny paper. Along with the elements from the Crate Paper and MME embellie packs, I found just the right sayings and details. To finish off I chose one of the Photo Overlays from the Crate Paper Pack to place over the photo to add a little extra zing!  You know I can't resist a little stamping, so I just had to throw that in around the edges!!

 I'm having so much fun with this kit. All the embellies are so fun to play with. 

We love seeing what everyone is doing with their kits, so please share with us on our facebook page!!! Have an awesome day everyone!

Back to School supplies with Laura

HI there!

Laura here today, sharing a little project with you.  Given that our kids, here in Ontario, went back to school this week I thought I would make a few little goodies for my youngest who is in grade six.

This is what I came up with....

Here are a few detail shots for you.

This little notebook, would also be cute on a layout if you have a lot of journaling you would like to add.

Thank you for visiting! Next week I will have a layout to share for my next Boys Rule DT assignment.

Lake House Canvas with Lynn

Good Morning!! It's Lynn today I'm sharing a canvas that I made with some of the leftover stickers and paper from the July/ Aug kit. 

 I have a ton of scrappy projects all over my studio and it got me thinking that my favourite place to be is out at the cabin, but I don't have any of my art there. Well that's about to change, lol.. I made this for our room out there to remind me what I love about the cabin.  . I have a little video tutorial to share on how it all came together! I would love to know what you all do with your scraps from your kits!What are your plans? Please share your projects with us on our facebook page, we would love to see them!

My favourite saying on the canvas:
 " I just need time in a beautiful place to clear my head"
