A Lot of Pink Layout

This is the second 100% digital scrapbook layout I created for the pinks: use a little or a lot challenge at Digitally Sweet Challenges this month.

I used My Memories Suite 7 software to design the digital page.

The background was created by stitching together several sheets of digital papers (5x7 size) by Lozzy's Digi Designs that I won at last months challenge.

The stitching, buttons and pink bow are all commercial use items by Mommyish and Just Jaimee found at

The heart and rectangles are Shapes in the MMS7 software.

The font used is Scrap Casual.

Thanks for looking =)

A Little Pink Layout

I'm happy to announce that my apple pies layout was a winner at last months Digitally Sweet Challenges! With that honor, I was able to choose three sets of digital papers from Lozzy's Digi Paper Designs (new blog under construction). The grungy background papers on the layout above are from one of the sets I chose , Dark Grunge. This 100% digital layout was created for the current challenge at Digitally Sweet,: use pinks, a little or a lot. This layout uses a little. I will share another tomorrow that uses a lot and more papers from my win :)

I used My Memories Suite 7 software to create this page.

It is easy to import your own paper or elements into the software. This particular page uses the imported background (use the Browse button on the Backgrounds tab to locate a paper or photo elsewhere on your computer). I also imported another of the grunge papers into the rectangle paper shape under the cluster.

The cluster is created by combining various elements in the MMS7 software. The white swirl was also in the software.

I created my own custom banner/flag shape (pretty easy to do within the software), for the journaling.

The photo was changed to black and white, then the pink shirt was brought back in. I thought it would look better on the papers this way rather than a full color photo.

Thanks for looking =)

Very Beary Christmas Card

I took a break from making Halloween cards
to create a Christmas card for the current challenge,
at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. 

I thought this Very Beary Christmas set 
(such an old one from Stampin' Up!)
was so cute when I bought it years ago -
initially to use the teddy bear on a rocking horse
image to create birth announcements with !
I still like it and since it hasn't seen much ink,
decided to use it for the challenge. 

The card stock colors are kraft, blushing bride,
 midnight muse and naturals ivory. 

The image was water colored using various inks
from my classic ink pads and a water brush.

I dotted on white craft paint with a toothpick
to create the polka dots. 

Rose red seam binding was fastened behind 
a metal backed pearl brad. 

Real stitching done with my sewing machine 
and distressing along the edges of the pink/kraft plaid piece.

The sentiment panel is attached with dimensionals/pop dots.

Thanks for looking =)
