tuesday . . .


**If you are part of the Imaginisce sketch challenge blog hop - head directly to this post**

I had the fabulous opportunity to work with Amber's adorable March kit at Scrapbook Kit Club. Full of Cosmo Cricket & October Afternoon goodness, as well as tons of other fun embellies (including those awesome Jillibean Soup Corrugated Cardboard Alphas), it was such a pleasure to work with!! Pop on over & check it out!!! Here are the projects I came up with . . .

First up, "Curious Boy" - don't miss out on seeing that layered flower held by a brad I created using the i-top by Imaginisce. Gotta love this tool!!! Amber had included these great felt circles in the kit & I stitched a quick "x" and the created a brad :)

Here's a close-up on the journaling . . .

And the title . . .

And a sketch to go along with it - Amber will be posting a challenge on her blog later this week so check in over there & join in the fun!!

Next up - "Best Buds" - my little man & his grandpa :) I had so much fun with this border - a perfect way of using scraps!! I punched then with a border punch & then hand-stitched all the way around. Loved all the fun Cosmo Cricket goodies tucked in around the pic!!!

"Oh So Sweet & Snuggly" is a pic of Ryan from the early days - love this Cosmo Cricket Earth Love line for baby pics :)

Quick close-up of the flowers I made - created by layering up punched flowers . . .

Finally 2 quick & easy cards -

Thanks Amber - loved creating with your kit!!! I have been asked to guest design for a few clubs in the coming months - can't wait to share with you all :) If you are a kit club owner & looking for a guest designer feel free to email me at dailyscrap@gmail.com - I'd love to chat with you!!

Before I go - Happy Birthday to this man . . .

My son LOVES Dr.Seuss & all his imaginative stories. Ryan is totally obsessed with The Cat in the Hat . . .

and The Grinch . . .

We spent the evening at a Dr.Seuss Birthday party at the local library - so much fun :)

Have a fab Tuesday & be back tomorrow to share my Magpie Club sketch & sample!!!

  1. Julie, these LO's are soooo amazing!! You are always so inspiring!! I have Earth Love papers and never thought of using them on a LO of my little nephew. I even have a sepia photo!! I agree with Ryan. Dr. Seuss rocks!! I have already started my nephew's collection. He has four so far and he is only just past a month old! LOL My fave as a child was, "Put me in the Zoo". I recently bought myself a copy for my collection. Gotta be ready for the day I hopefully get to be a granny. :)

  2. Julie, I am always in constant awe of your work. You are such a talented crafter! Thank you for sharing your inspiration AND you as always amazing sketch!

  3. Wow Julie, these are truly jaw-dropping! You are such an amazing scrap-artist! I love your pleated border, I must try that with my dictionary paper!!!

    Also, that pieced and stitched border rocks!!!

  4. The way you did the border around best buds just rocks! Love them all, your work gives me so much inspiration!

  5. fabu pages and card - love the borders you created :D

  6. Julie, what wonderful layouts you have done. I always get giddy when I see your work. Thanks for sharing.

  7. OMGosh Julie... I just had the music start on my computer from your site. Now let me tell you, I normally have the sound on my computer muted, so this was "new" to me - except that it wasn't. I remember back in the day when the 52's were just starting and you had about 10 followers, that you always posted a song of the day. That was how I was introduced to the song "Love Song" and it was mine and my daughter's (then 1 1/2 yrs) jam. We loved it!

    It just made me smile to know you're still doin' it.... And of course, your LO's are awesome.... as always.....
