Summer Lovin' Layout!

Karla here today and I am so enjoying summer! Lots of time spent outside, we've done some camping, spent time at the local amusement park! And, of course a bit of scrappin'! I pulled out these pics from a camping trip a couple years ago and paired them with some BoBunny Boardwalk paper I picked up from the Scrapendipity truck. I also grabbed the sweet BoBunny ephemera pack that matched it for some coordinating embellishments!

I love the bright look of this paper and the colour combos - I even used it to cut my Summer Lovin' title.


Keeping with the Prima Paper Doll stamp theme from last week, I used Jeanne and paper pieced her outfit with the BoBunny papers after stamping her on a script paper pad.

The BoBunny ephemera pack came with some great summer stamps and I used the splash stamp and blue Distress Ink to stamp an outline behind my title as well as in the top right corner. I created the lines of white and gold by running my Tombow glue across the page and sprinkling with a glittery embossing powder, and I also used the same embossing powder to create a border around my 3 squares cut from the BoBunny paper pack.


I cut a banner shape and layered on a cute charm, also in the ephemera pack, tied with a little baker's twine.


Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you are enjoying the sunshine wherever you are!

Fun Friday with Pam A Lightbulb Moment


Finally got to this project I have been wanting to try for a long time. Simple, really.
Assemble some basic starters. Sturdy clean burnt out light bulb, double sided tape, hot glue gun, mesh from....'garlic' with one end still intact, alcohol ink, some wire,burlap type rope, bits and baubles from the stash. Broken jewelry works great for hanging things.
 Close up detail for the top of the bulb. First, Make a loop with about 5 inches of wire, feed ends your wire through the large cog, hook through the top of the mesh and wrap it back around the cog on both sides.  Feed the end through the small cog to secure the top. I used a dab of glossy accents to secure. You could possibly use a low heat glue gun.
Next I took the bulb turned it so the large part was to my mat, and dribbled ink down it in lines. Note, be careful, it is slippery. Dry it thoroughly before continuing to handle it.
For the basket, I double sided taped the screw in end and wound the string around it tightly. Securing at bottom with more tape.
Next I ran a line of tape around the largest part of the bulb. Trimmed the mesh so it just sticks to the tape. Covered it all with a 2 lee valley garden tags made of copper that I embossed. Note, I used old earrings to join the corners and hang a few baubles off of.

Roastin' Marshmallows!

Karla back today, showcasing this sweet layout using the Julie Nutting Prima Paper Doll, Marisol. She comes with a simple little dress/undergarment on so that you can dress her up. I used the hat from the Jill doll and created her shorts and T-shirt, first using tracing paper over the doll's body so I could see the outline, and then cutting out the outfit and tracing around it onto patterned paper. I drew her flip flops on and coloured them in with Distress Markers.

The papers I used are from a BoBunny collection - the Roastin' Marshmallows title is actually a journaling card from a cut-apart sheet - and I love how the marshmallows are printed directly onto this 12x12 page! 



I layered Marisol on a tag cut from more camping themed paper and added more papers on top from the cut apart sheet. I added some blue and pinks in with some bakers twine to match my cardstock and the dolls hat and shoes.


I recently got these adorable campers from a CTMH order and decided they'd be the perfect fit for this page - they gave it a 'Glamping' feel - because if you use a Julie Nutting doll it definitely adds some glamour to your project! I stamped them on watercolour paper and used Distress and Tombow Markers to watercolour them in before placing them on my page.


I hope you're enjoying  your summer - maybe with a little camping on the side! Thanks so much for joining me today!
