Scraplift Challenge...

I am a huge Studio Calico fan. Their kits are amazing. Their designers create divine layouts. They have a fantastic message board which I sometimes lurk on and a fabulous blog which I follow.

On the blog recently they issued a scraplift challenge and posted two layouts each from the owners of Studio Calico. I couldn't resist these gorgeous layouts so I created my own lifts of them.

My first layout is a lift from April, and you can see her layout here.

Here is what I did for my lift. I started with a blank piece of white cardstock and laid a 9x9 piece of scrap cardstock over it to create the mask for the frame. I then sprayed on pink glimmer mist and stamped that fun little flower stamp (from Everyday Adorable) randomly to create the frame effect.

I loved all the little details in the original layout like the layers of patterned papers....

Since my photo was from Kat's 2nd birthday, I created emphasis around the 2 using  a Heidi Swapp bling circle frame.

Supplies Used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Everyday Adorable
*Unity Stamp Co. ...another Sweet day (May kom)
*Unity Stamp Co. Let's Get Scrappy
*Martha Stewart border punches
*MM papers
*Martha Stewart butterfly punch
*Tattered Angels glimmer mist
*Heidi Swapp bling frame


And this layout is a lift from Scarlet, you can see her original layout here.

These photos were taken on Earth Day when I took Kat out to go play at the park. She will spend hours on the swing if I let her...she loves it!

I stamped this tree image in black and then colored it in with black marker to create a silhouette look to it.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Carefree Moments Oak
*Unity Stamp Co. Sentiments o' Simple
*Fancy Pants paper
*Fiskars border punch
*Marvy Uchida Scallop punches
*MM paper (green circle punches)

I hope that you are all having a fabulous weekend!!!
