#Gamer's In Training

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

I can not believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving already! Time has flown by! As the next few days pass, I wish you and your family a blessed Thanksgiving, a productive Black Friday and I hope you find some new crafty bargins for you stash!!!....but shhhhh...we won't tell! HAHAHA!
I am continuing on with scrapping my stash this week and have "shopped" my stash of crafty supplies and created a few smaller "kits", so to speak, to work from so I don't feel so overwhelmed.  Today I'm pulling all older collections with the exception of the Dear Lizzy Documented sheet that I used for my background paper. I wanted to have this be a bright and contrasting layout with a black and white background with pops of bold and bright color...then I got a little carried away with my mists! lol!!  I love how this turned out!
Here are a few close ups and I'll have product listed below!

This time around, I used more product lines that I have been using in the past few layouts. 
Here is some of the items that I used:

Got Candy? Eek! Eww! Halloween Layout

Hello everyone!
It's hard to believe that we are just 2 days away from Thanksgiving already....where in the world has the time gone?! October seems like such a blur....and so does this first part of November! Sheesh! lol
Anyways, I'm still pushing thru my photos from Halloween and getting them into my album and wanted to share this one! This is probably my most favorite this year because seriously, how cute are those spiders?!  If you know anything about me, you'd know that I would NEVER say I like spiders, but how could you not in this layout?! They are just so dang cute!!!!!

Here are some close ups of the layout and I'll have product information below!

The products that I used in this layout came mostly from my stash...because that stash keeps growing and I feel like I'm never using it..oops!   Some of the items used were from Pebbles "Trick or Treat" collection and the others were from Bella Blvd "Too Cute to Spook" collection. It seems like these two manufacturers are my "go to" companies lately. Because they are older collections, they are more difficult to find for sale, but I was able to find a few pieces of the Pebbles collection. Here are the links:

"Family Is Love" Layout

Happy Friday All!

Today I have a fun layout to share with you using Bella Blvd. products, watercolors and a cut file from The Cut Shoppe! Fall has definately been in the air lately and I love to capture that moment at least once every year when it's still warm enough outside for my boys to play in the leaves and enjoy the sunshine. The photo is a little fuzzy, but I made it a warm grey scale to help hide that and to also tone down the colors on the page since there is so much going on. 

Here are some photos and close ups of the layout and Ill have links at the end for the products I have used!

I LOVE this leaf paper from Bella Blvd and knew that I had to use it, but I also wanted to do some watercoloring splashes, So I decided to use gesso behind the leaf grouping so you can see it better. The leaves I made from a cut file from The Cut Shoppe.  The file actually is just one of the single leaves and what I did was scale them in different sizes and weld them together for behind the photo, then left 3 different size single leafs to use on the top right of the layout. I used my Gansai Tambi Watercolors to color my leaves then applies my clear wink of stella glitter pen over top to add shimmer.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend!
