Summer Kit #5 Hello Summer '99

Summer Kit #5 Hello Summer '99

This stripe is my favorite from the Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness collection.  Luckily I had two sheets of the floral paper so I could fussy cut these flowers.  Black is a perfect accent with these colors.  The ice cream is a 3x4 card.  Since I don't do Project Life style pages, I find these cards a challenge.  Trimming down my photo to 3x4 makes it so much easier to use these cards.

I found this sketch on Let's Get Sketchy blog, sketch by Brenshevia.

Summer Kit #4 Sitting Poolside

Summer Kit #4 Sitting Poolside

Love the simplicity of the sketch and the beautiful colors of the papers that coordinate perfectly with pool photos.  Able to use quite a bit of chipboard with
a few stickers.  The papers were all outlined with black pen.

The sketch is from Creative Scrappers #202.  My Chromebook isn't allowing my to download it to add as a link, so sorry.  It's easy to find!

Summer Kit #3 You are my Sunshine

Summer Kit #3 You are My Sunshine

The background is a very soft pink. I edged all the papers with black ink which goes perfect with these summer colors. I popped the sun up with fun foam.  More texture with a couple of buttons and another silver heart brad along with a flower brad that I purchased 7-8 years ago.  Sprinkled with black India Ink.

I found this lovely sketch from Creative Scrappers #210

Fall LO for LG Sketchy

Fall LO for Let's Get Sketchy

I am one of those scrappers that love to scrap the season we are in.  Fall is my favorite season and didn't know I had any fall photos that haven't been scrapped.  This photo dates back to 1994!  I had it in color but her coat was brightly colored and didn't go with the fall color theme at all. 

I have put together an Autumn Kit from my stash, just waiting until the weather cooled down (OK, I'll accept 82 degrees for fall in TX) and this photo was just waiting.  And I knew when I saw this sketch from Let's Get Sketchy, (October Week 1) that it was perfect.  

The brown is water downed acrylic paint that I wanted to have drips and sprinkles.  The wood veneer pumpkin I got at Target at the dollar spot. The flair I got from A Flair for Buttons. She has wonderful fall flair.    I love using up some of my stash.

Summer Kit #2 Fun

Summer Kit #2 Fun

Not exactly summer colors but it was in my kit and I just went with it. Not sure why I had this photo in my photo box in black and white since the top I'm wearing is black and white...go figure.  I was able to use a frame and the photo mat is on vellum.  I did some machine stitching, adding sprinkles.  I know I used Navy Heidi Swapp.  The circle on the photo is Balsa wood that I cut using my Big Shot and added patterned paper.  I found some silver heart brads for this kit. 

I found this lovely sketch (but couldn't upload on my blog-sorry) at

Summer Kit #1 She is So Sassy

Summer Kit #1: She is So Sassy

This is Kit #3 for me.  I am always so amazed how fast I can complete pages by having the kits ready.  I recently purchased the Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness to start things off and added as much as I could to make my kit complete.

I used this sketch again.  It's one of my favorites.
