Simply Betty Challenges: Pockets in my Layout

Greetings! It’s time for another Scrap Team challenge from Simply Betty Stamps! This week, we are challenging you to make a layout using pockets! Wanna see my project?

These photos are from 2009. My sisters and I threw my Mom a surprise Pirate Birthday Party. She adores all things pirate (especially if said pirates look like Johnny or Orlando!), and we’ve actually had some other pirate bashes since then. Anywho, I decided to use Simply Betty’s Jack and Lizzy digis on top of my pocket. Here’s what is inside of the pocket.

Two more photos! Pockets are a great way to add lots of extra stuff to your page that would not have fit otherwise. And, they are also great to hide things that may be too personal for everyone to see. That’s not the case here though. Look at how teeny Phoenix is! He’s only 6 months old! Awwwww!

Here’s a close up of Lizzy and Jack, plus my sis Monica and my BFF Terry peeking out of the pocket. FYI, the dude holding Phoenix in the other pocket picture is our very good friend Donmar. I colored the SBS digis with my markers.

And there’s my very happy Mother! She’s squeeing with delight! And oh yeah…that’s me holding Nix. :)

I do hope you will join the Simply Betty gals for this new challenge! It’s easy, and a lot of fun! So hop over to the SBS Challenge Blog to see what the other chicks have cooked up for you and to play along! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
