Make it your own...

First of all, my apologies for the glare on this photo. What I want to share here with you is the idea of using stamps, ink & paper to create framed artwork. In a couple days I'll be sharing the brand new Annual Inspiration Idea Book with you. I was inspired by one of the projects in the new Annual Inspirations to create this framed piece for my sister-in-law for her birthday last week. Sometimes the simplest projects can make a nice piece of art!
The stamp set used here is C1559 Always Grateful.

Sunset in the Pines - AHSC #120

4th of July weekend Doug & I went camping with Annie and I'm just starting to get our pictures scrap-booked. The AHSC sketch this week and the CTMH Fundamentals papers were the perfect inspiration for this layout.
Here's this week's sketch - & there's still time for you to create something too!

All this layout took was 2 sheets of paper and 2 Cricut cuts!

I printed the photo 8x8, cut the scallop frame on the Cricut Explore @ 9.4 then cut the title to fit in the shadow created by the bench the kids are sitting on, then I printed a quick journaling tag with the place and date the picture was taken. It was that easy!

fun day ~ AHSC #119

This picture of my little niece Peyton and her Noni has been sitting on my table with the piece of Zoe paper just waiting for the right inspiration! So when I saw the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge this week I realized "that will work"!
And the Zoe WOTG stamp set was perfect for my layout title! Before I put this in the album I'll add a personal journaling note for Peyton to tell her how much her Noni loves the beach!
Here's this week's sketch....
Now go visit the AHSC blog and see what everyone else has created!
