The sun's coming up

Hi and welcome to Paper Issues Simple Scrapper Sketches blog hop. You should have arrived here from Paper Issues.This is my first hop with PI and I am so happy you came by. I have a layout to share with you using the sketch.
This sketch was super simple and fun and it really got my creativity flowing. I loved the circles but I wanted to make it different. I layered the circles of different sizes that I hand cut. They are all funky shaped and I like that. For my title I used the Amy Tangerine embroidery template. I really like the look of the hand-stitching.

Now time for some goodies! There are 2 prizes to giveaway so keep hopping!

Next up on the hop is Arielle:

Everybody Get Up

Hello all you wonderful people. I have my Glitz weekly page to share with you today. Our theme was first day of school. My kids just went back the 13th of this month. I am soooo happy, they go to bed much earlier and are gone part of the day! LOL! Yes I know that sounds bad but I have 4 children that are at THAT age where they CONSTANTLY fight. Seriously. I am not kidding. Anyway this mama needs a little break from it all to keep my sanity and of course create more pretty stuff! Haha! Anyway here is what I created.

I love the Glitz stamps. Love their new lines. I just love this company to bits. I know I say that a lot, but I really really mean what I say. TRUTH.

Now hang me up to dry

Hello! More Glitz lovelies to share with you all today. The first was for the Glitz blog. Goes up today. Use grey, aqua and yellow. Sunshine for your soul is perfect for this lil challenge.

I loved taking my kids to the fair this year. We dont get to do those things very often. We are a big family with not a lot of income. As you can imagine my kids tend to eat a lot and the prices of going to something like a fair is really high. Sometimes you just have to tighten that belt and go. We did. They really enjoyed it. This page displays a few pictures of the rides there. We had a pretty great summer this year.

Secondly we have a new Jack up over at Scrap Jacked.
I adore Shanna Noel and knew when we decided to Jack her that it would be super easy. She inspires me constantly with her talent. Love the houses on her layout and of course had to add lots of layers to mine. Used Glitz Finnley collection. Oh and did you know Glitz makes cut files? That big feather... Glitz! I love that darn thing. In the Silhouette store. They also have a mustache and a deer!

Kids are back in school! YAY! I am super happy about that one! Hahaha! They were getting stir crazy. Lots of back to school shopping and money spending though. UGH!

Be back soon with some more lovelies!

Come into my world I've got to show you

Our assignment for Glitz this time around was to use the stamps. Boy do they have a lot of yummy stamps to play with. I love the roller stamps and dont get me started on the new wood mounted ones! I used all of the above on this page.

This page is about my adventures around the city I live in. I played a tourist for a few hours with my husband and got some pretty neat pictures. We had a fabulous time. I pulled the navy from my tights onto the page. I love navy and pink. Here is the Glitz products I used...

Wild and free- Giant Rhinestones
Wild and free- Bits and PCS
Wild and free-Giant Roller Doodle x
Wild and free-Stamp tin
Wild and free- 12x12 stickers Alphabets and words
Wild and free- Paper hearts
Wild and free-Dream Catcher
Wild and free- 12x12 sticker Titles and accents

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see what you create with these new fabulous lines

Novocaine our brains and we're out like lights

Have some Issues to tell you all about. Some Paper Issues...

Yes thats right, I am a new dt member for Paper Issues! Fabulous store and a group of fabulous ladies! Super excited to be on this team.

I have been playing with some studio calico Atlantic collection... Love the colors and embellishments. I think my favorite part of scrapbooking is the embellishments. Love them. Of course I love the paper too. Could be why I always walk out of the store with more paper then anything. Anywho back to the pages.

Loved collecting all the bits for these pages. So much fun. I really need to start going back to my studio to create. I have much more at my finger tips and can get a little more messy. I tend to be a mulitasker so I try to watch a movie or clear out the dvr while I am creating.

Where do you create?

Sparkles light with yellow icing

Oooh my friends I am super sad that I missed CHA. You see, I had planned to go but ya know life happens. Blah blah blah. BUT I did get to create with the new glitz lines! OOOOO let me tell you I had a blast. They are simply fabulous! I love them all! I didn't have a lot of time to create the 10 pages... I would've liked to add more details but it is what it is. I also was not able to take any pictures! BOOO! Hopefully at some point someone will have a few I can share.

For now here is some of my favorite bits from the new Glitz lines.

OH MY GOODNESS! Swoon worthy

So my friends I took vacation days for CHA but, well, ya know. So I did a bit of destashing, cleaning, and I found a page. This page. It wasn't technically finished. Or so I felt. But when I found it I thought to myself, looks done to me. SO, here ya go.

Lastly I have a page I did for whisker Graphics. I adore this company. The best twine and bitty bags around. I used twine, glassine bag and the new circle stickers.

I gesso'd the circles to mute the colors a bit. I worked with the Basic Grey Mint Julep line. I had been waiting to get my hands on that. SO much mint, navy, and pink. YUM!

SO I had 4 days off and I camped out with the kids in our backyard. Now for those who have been my friends for a while, you know all about this, but for those who are new let me enlighten you. Every year there is a national camp out in your backyard day. Everyone should participate! LOL! I try to every year. So this year it snuck up on me. Good thing is you dont have to do it on the specific day although it would be nice. Anyway this year we did it in July (it is usually June).

Kids had a smashing time. Even tho I ask myself a million times through the whole ordeal "why I do this?" I end the night with a full heart and a smile on my face.

More summer fun to come!

I have been making a lot of pages lately with the new lines. They are all so awesome. The stamps are sooooo cool. I really enjoyed playing with them on this page. I used the roller stamps and the wood mount ones.
Seriously how cool are those triangle stamps?! And the little feathers?! I die! I used the Wild and Free line for this page. Also the triangle roller stamp from Raven line.

What is your fav line? What do you love most about them? The stamps? The stickers? The paper? How bout all of it! LOL!
