Technique Tuesday Memory Keepers Studio August


Today I've got a 2 page Project Life layout made with the August goodies from Technique Tuesday's new stamp and die clubs, Memory Keepers Studio and Fresh Cut Studio.

We went to Virginia back in March for one of my daughter's sporting events and I had so many pictures I just put them aside.  But now here they are!  Pocket page layouts are so perfect when you have a lot of photos.

Here is the August Memory Keepers stamp set, Going Places

And the Fresh Cut Studio Going Places dies

Besides these I used some Thickers from an older Studio Calico kit, the Becky Higgins Childhood Mini Project Life kit, and a bunch of other stamps and dies from Technique Tuesday.

Here is the left side

And a closeup of the cards

For the card on the left above I used the Geotag die and stamps from a fairly new set, Best Place.  Then for the journaling card I used This Arrow Card die and the camera die from Going Places.

Here is the right side

For the card with the photo taken in the pool I used the Home Circle Card die.

And here is a step out of how I like to use the Story Card dies overtop of cards from the Core kits.

So there you have it!

Do you still have trip photos to scrap?  Get those kids back in school and get to work!

CFC134 Tic Tac Toe

Hello!  There is a now CAS-ual Fridays challenge up today.  The ever popular Tic Tac Toe.

I chose the left vertical row and used chevrons, houndstooth, and dots on my card.

The patterned papers are from Pebbles, I've got a Studio Calico veneer, and a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Rad stamp set.

If you haven't been over to the CAS-ual Fridays blog there is an announcement.  This is the last challenge of 2014.  We're taking a break.  There is a prize for the challenge and something extra being offered at each of the Girl Fridays blogs.

We're each giving away a $20 GC to CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!  Leave a comment here for a chance at my GC, then head over to the other Girl Friday's blogs for a chance at theirs.  And please play along with this last challenge of the year!

Technique Tuesday Memory Keepers Studio

Have you heard about the new stamp and die clubs over at Technique Tuesday?

Starting this month there are 2 new clubs, Memory Keepers Studio and Fresh Cut Studio.  Please click the links to check out the details on how to subscribe or do single purchases.  These are both really great!  You can also preview July, August, and September's stamps and dies on the TT website for both of these clubs.

Here is what I used for this 6x8 Project Life spread.

July Memory Keepers stamps, Family Flair.

And July Fresh Cut Studio dies, Flair Maker

This is my favorite page layout for 6x8 pages, a full 6x8 photo on one side and 4 3x4's on the other side.  In addition to the Memory Keepers stamps and Fresh Cuts dies I used the Grid stamp and Story Card die for the lower left card.  The black card is from a Studio Calico kit (not sure which one, I've been letting them pile up!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Some Cute Hybrids and Dollar Days


Today I've got a few hybrid cards made with some new digital kits from Creashens at Pixels and Co.  This first image is just the cutest!  It's in the iScream kit.  I printed it out on matte presentation paper, then ran it through the Papertrey Canvas and Linen Impression plate.  The image has the canvas embossing and the kraft has the linen embossing.  I love that plate!

Then this one uses a resized journaling card from the iScream Journalers kit, which is one of the many Dollar Days kits being released at Pixels and Co during July.

Check them all out here.  They're awesome!
