Lasting Memories Layout Challenge #628 ~ 2022 Favorites - Wedding Inspired

  Hello Scrapbooking Friends!!


For December we will be revisiting some of our favorite Lasting Memories challenges from 2022.


According to Inlinkz - the months with the most participation were March with 73 entries (Love Your Stash Challenges), May with 51 entries (Wedding Inspired Challenges), and a tie for January and April - both with 34 entries (January - New Challenges/New Ideas and April - Shapes Challenge). So our challenges for December will be based on these themes.            


For LM Challenge #628 ~ Wedding Inspired (May 2022) - Create a layout and use something old, something new, something borrowed (either scraplift someone or use a sketch), and add something blue. 


Here is my layout for LM Challenge #628 ~ Wedding Inspired:





Something Old ~ Quickutz Build an Apple die


Something New ~ Pictures


Something Borrowed ~ Sketch ~

Hello Christmas Lovers!!


Today is the start of a new Christmas Challenge over on the year round Peace On Earth Christmas Challenge Blog ~ POE Challenge #29


Here is my card for POE Challenge #29:



Ingredients:

Sizzix Woodland Nature die set
Sizzix Woodlands
White card stock
Watercolor paper
Green Paper
White paper
White Glitter paper
Tan paper
Brown paper
Gray paper
Faded Jeans distress oxide
Prize Ribbon distress oxide

For this A2 card I started by making the base of the card with White card stock.  I took a piece of Watercolor paper and the distress oxides and applied the different colors with my blending brushes and when the paper was dry I added that to the card.  I took some White Glitter paper and added that to the bottom of the card.  I took some Green paper and cut out the Sizzix Woodland Trees and added them to the card.  I took some Tan paper and the Deer from the Sizzix Woodland Nature die and cut it out.  I took some Gray paper and the Rabbit die from the Sizzix Woodland Nature die and cut it out and added both the deer and the rabbit to the card.  I was inspired by the reindeer in the Inspiration Board listed below.
