SC Roller Rink and One Cool Dude = favorite layout

This may be my new favorite layout in the history of ever. It started with papers from SC roller rink but nothing else  but a few brads and enamel dots came from the kit.

I used a new Prima mask and several SC and HS mists to color the background. I then used stamps, flait, pearls, brads, glitz jewels,  enamel dots, and beads from Queen&Co (seriously old stash item) to decorate some of the circles. The stamps are Mama Elephant, Cocoa Daisy and SC.

Class pic and SC Elmwood Park

Earlier this month, I went on a weekend retreat with 15 or 16 other scrapbookers. I only got 11 layouts done over the 2.5 days but I really like all of them. Everything on this LO was from the SC Elmwood Park kit again except the SC veneers and the background. I made it a couple weeks ago after watching some videos from Wilna Furstenberg's Art Class at 2peas. I backed some stars in the new Prima star stencil with washi tape before misting the background paper. I then used various stamps in the unmisted spots and traced around the perimeter of the stars with a pen

Pic is of my son's second grade class which spawned a large set of friends that still hang out whenever they can now

Original - and Authentique

This is an older layout and done from my stash. Uses Authentique paper and stickers, MME card, MR pins, WRMK grommets, and brads that I think were DejaViews???

Pics are my older  son getting congratulated on a great game by his Dad

Silly and Sweet - SC Elmwood Park

 Pics are my kid dancing and playing with silly bands in our driveway complete with mismatched pajamas.

I used the SC Elmwood Park kit and add-ons (July 2012) which was my first. The color in the photo is off on the second one but thought I'd post both. The first was the layout when I originally completed it. The second is the result of my tinkering when I decided it just wasn't done. The die-cuts were bought in the SC shop and were leftover stock from their June 2012 kits. Everything else was from the kits

Dueling Duo and SC Planetarium

I think these photos mostly speak for themselves - 2 boys + 2 light sabres = dueling fun!

Stamps are from the North Star add-on set again. Stamping with gold HS color shine is problematic at best :P Veneers are Freckled Fawn from my stash as is the FP red alpha

Love You to the Stars and Back - SC Planetarium

 My youngest is a ham for the camera so it loves him. This is just a cute shot of him goofing a few years ago.

I used the SC Planetarium (May) kit. The only add-on I bought was the North Star card kit add-on cause I adored the stamp set (and the papers). The "I love you" is from that set. The rest is my handwriting. Everything is from the kit except the mist and those little 3D circle stickers which are Heidi Grace (I think- definitely Colorbok)

Friends and SC Neverland

I went to Archivers a month or so ago and someone was getting an oh-so-early start on Christmas cards! This frame was the elftovers of santa's collar on her round cards. So, I backed the openings with soem of my fav papers from the Neverland kit and add-ons (of which I have all because it was my favorite kit set ever)All of the embellies are from the kits. The letters are stamped with the Navy Pier kit alpha set. I used HS color shine in gold lame and teal and used JB inks to color the veneer banners.
Picture is from a girls night out with college friends <3 br="">

You Can Never Have Too Much Happy - SC Spencer

More Spencer kit in action! Papers are EP and Glitz as well as scraps of an SC exclusive. I used the PL stamp set and BG clips, frames and stickers. I cut the banner in the lower right and popped it up off the background.
My youngest always relishes Daddy's undivided attention - esp since he always has competition :P

Twisting Hair and SC Spencer kit

Here is another layout made with the SC Spencer kit. I added SC mist and MME washi plus the polaroid frames are cut from a MME paper. The picture is of my 2 kids playing with and twisting their hair which seems to be a genetic trait in my mom's family

Mini Mohawk - SC Spencer kit

I've been making a concerted effort to use my Studio Calico kits lately- especially since they have been kind of piling up. I really liked this kit and found it very usable - all the papers on this page except the orange were SC exclusives . The only non-kit items were the Mr Huey spray, HS mask, SC orange letters,  and bling. The picture is my kid mugging for the camera after I sued about half a bottle of gel to get his hair to stick up in a mohawk :P
