Lasting Memories Layout Challenge #486 ~ Once Loved, Now Forgotten ~ Tool Free For All

Hello Blogging Friends,


The theme for February is "Once loved, now forgotten."  This month, let's pull out those tools and supplies that are collecting dusts.  Let's show them some love!


LM #486 ~ Tool Free For All ~ Use any tool that's been collecting dust in your craft room ~ ie...crimper, crop o dile, paper piercer, punches, stamps, die cutters, etc.


Here is my layout:




I decided to use two different tools that I haven't used in a long while.  I used my Wavy Trimmer:



And my Tearing Tool:


I took the Red paper and I trimmed it down with the Wavy Trimmer.  I took the Tan paper and tore the edge with the Tearing Tool and I taped them together.



I taped the border down onto the page.



Then I cut out my title and added that to the page, I matted my pictures with Red paper and added them to the page.



This layout is of my daughter and her fiance on a recent trip to Smithville.


Now hop on back over to the Lasting Memories Layout Challenge Blog to see all the wonderful scrapbook pages the Design Team have made!  And why not join in on this fun challenge!

Hearts

Hello Blogging Friends!!


It is my turn today on the Dies R Us Blog and I have 2 quick and easy Valentine's to share with you.


Here is my first card:



My first card is a 5" X 7"card and I started with a 5 x 7 white card base.


I took the Gray striped paper, inked the edges with Black ink and added that to the base of the card.  I took the Memory Box Open Studio Stitched Heart layers die and some different Valentine's paper and cut out the different size hearts.  I wasn't sure how I wanted to mix up the papers and the different size hearts so I played around with it until I found the look I liked and then I added the hearts to the card.   I took some Red ink and the sentiment stamp and stamped that onto the card.



My second card is 4 1/4 inch by 5 1/2 inch card and I started with White card stock to make the base of the card.  I took the cute hearts with faces paper, inked the edges with Spun Sugar distress ink  and then added that to the base of the card.  I took the largest heart from the Memory Box Stitched Heart Layers die and cut out the Red heart paper with the sentiment printed sentiment in the middle of the paper and added that to the card!  Easy peasy and I was done!  I really love these Stitched Hearts dies!

Lasting Memories Layout Challenge #484

Hello Blogging Friends,

The theme for February is "Once loved, now forgotten."  This month, let's pull out those tools and supplies that are collecting dusts.  Let's show them some love!


LM #484 ~ Let's see some stamped images on your layout.  


Here is my layout for this challenge:



My husband and I just celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary so we took out our Wedding Album to reminisce about our Wedding.  Well I was very upset that there was this big blank space next to the picture on the lower right hand side of the layout.  Since we had a Bride & Groom Mouse cake topper for our wedding cake I decided that I would get out my old House Mouse Wedding Mr & Meeces stamp and color it and put it on the page.  I took White paper, black ink and the Mr * Meeces stamp and stamped it onto the paper with black ink.  I colored in the mice with Copic markers.  I took some gold paper and my Die-Versions Whispers Mr. & Mrs. background die and cut that out and adde the stamped image to it and then put that in my album.  I think the House Mouse stamp looks like our wedding cake topper:



Here is my stamped and colored image:



I am much happier with the layout now!!




Now hop on back over to the Lasting Memories Layout Challenge Blog to see all the wonderful scrapbook pages the Design Team have made!  And why not join in on this fun challenge! 

I am entering this page in the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge ~ Challenge #309 Anything Goes with the Option of Love or Valentine.
