Holiday Cookies Layout

Happy Wednesday!

Today I am sharing a scrapbook page that I recently completed using my Peachy Keen Stamps.

I know summer just started but for some reason I love catching up on my Holiday scrapbooking during the off-season. Usually around holiday time I am so overwhelmed with all of my giant to-do lists and family gatherings, that I can't do much crafting and just pick up a few stacks of paper to use at a later time.

In this layout I am using  PKS-02 Gingerbread Girl  and PKS-14 Gingerbread Boy
All of the pattern paper is from DVWC The Christmas Combo Stack. 

This is a realtivly simple layout that I used since all of my photos were 4x6. I just layed them side by side across the layout and cut out a 6.25x12 piece of red cardstock to mat them on.

I cut one photo small to focus on the center of the image, and cut a cardstock just 1/4 inch larger. I am sorry but I do not remember the exact dimensions of the smaller photo

I then cut  a 7x12 piece of Script Pattern Cardstock and Inked the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Ink and adhered it to the center of my 12x12 Kraft Cardstock

I traced a piece of 12x12 scalloped bazzil cardstock onto the back of the Diagonal Striped 12x12 paper, and hand cut it with scissors. I then Inked the edges with my Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Ink, and cut it in half.

For the journaling lines and stamps I used Scrappy Moms Stamps Picture Perfect Stamps Set. These sentiments and Phrases are so fantastic to add to the layouts, and the journaling lines make it easy to add journaling area to your pages

The title is by Samantha Walker purchased from the Silhouette online store (here) cut from Green Ivy Pattern Cardstock

For my peachy Cuties I had stampted them on a piece of heavy Weight Cream Cardstock and paper pieced them with Kraft Cardstock, and Pattern papers from the DCWV stack. For the whites of the icing, I colored the kraft with my white pentel paint pen, and added stickles for a glittery shine. I then cut them out and mounted them on heart doily.

I finished the layout with some Cherry Cobbler Timeless Twine , white buttons, and some doodling with my white pentel paint pen.

I hope you enjoyed this layout and I've inspired you to put some of your Peachy Keen Stamps in your scrapbooking. Using Stamps rather than die cuts in scrapbooking makes a very quick project.

This layout was completed in 45 mins start to finish.

Have a fanstastic day!

Peachy Keen Stamps: Sketch Challenge!

Hey Peachies,

Today is another Challenge day at Peachy Keen Stamps, and I'm part of the Design Team group for this challenge.

Today's challenge is to create a project using the sketch below and of course your Peachy Keen Stamps

Here is my take on this sketch

 I knew when I saw this sketch, that I wanted to make the main image something cute and unique. I used a flower from PK-229 Funny Flowers, and I masked off it's face and stampeed the face from PKSC-05 May 2012. I then stamped the flower put from PKSC-03 March 2012 and used the flower tro from PK-563 Garden Wheelies at the bottom of the flower pot. Stamped with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink All of this was done using Post it Sticky Notes

I then carefully spent about an Hour coloring in this image using my Prismacolor pencils, blending stump and and Odorless Mineral Spirits to blend.

I mounted my image on a slightly large piece of Purple Cardstock

I used a scrap piece of pink paper, which I stamped PK-298 Grampa's Pajamas with SU Melon Mambo Ink. I punched out a scallop Border using my Fiskars Scallop Sentiment Border Punch.

The sentiment comes from PKSC-05 May 2012 stamped with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink
I finished off the side of the card with Paptertrey ink Plum Pudding Ribbon
