Everything ABC Blog Hop - Letter H


Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter H.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their H element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

I am being a bit silly with this but Honey, I Shrunk the Kids! is my H!  

I have been wanting to make one of our new Base and Bling Pendant Necklaces since they came out in the Idea book this time! 
I have had the stuff and not enough time, so…I shrunk the latest and best photo of my kids down to a 1x1 using Picmonkey collage and printed it!
I only needed one photo so I cut it out and adhered it to the pendant with adhesive and put 4 dots of Liquid Glass on it and put the glass cover over it and wiped away the excess.  It took no time at all!  Then I added the charms of my choice and I was done!  5 minutes max!




 There are lots of options too!  You can use a photo or one of the Style Sheets which are self adhesive have a wide variety of fun things on them!
 The necklaces also have options!  Round or square, Antique gold or silver! You could also make a keychain out of the pendants!!  

There are also lots of charms to choose from!
The combinations are plentiful and there is something for everyone!

Catitude


The patterned paper I used for this layout is not CTMH but, I am sure that most of us are not purists and I sometimes need different styles and colors and to USE my stash!  The thing I always find amazing when this happens though is that I can go to my CTMH card stock and find coordinating colors!  The color is a little off on this photo but I used Honey, Cranberry, Black and Lagoon.

I really liked the White Daisy for the title but I had no embellishments to particularly add to this layout so I jazzed up the White Daisy by adding the faux stitching!  It is amazing to me how much just a little faux stitching can add to a page!  Oh and the corner rounder made it a little softer!  I rarely think to do corner rounding anymore but I love it when I do!  Did you know that our corner rounder perfectly matched the rounded corners on out Picture My Life line too?  So if you want to round photos or other paper you include they can blend perfectly!

The other thing that really stood out to me with this page is that it was so graphic it didn't seem to need a lot more than just the layout itself!  Kind of a less is more type of thing!

Hope you enjoyed this post and if you leave a comment for me I will draw a name to send them gift in the mail!

Everything ABC Blog Hop - Letter G


Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter G.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their G element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

For the letter G I chose Grin and Gift!  I love my daughter's grin in the page on the left!  It is so hard to get a decent grin from her it usually looks more like a grimace!

 I made these pages and eleven more from last Christmas in less than 2 weeks with very little time investment!  

The paper used is Sparkle and Shine which is now retired but is still available in Studio J! The title is the Stickease Alphabet!  I love being able to use Stickease alphabets because I NEVER run out of letters and they are always the right size!  
 One of my favorite things about Studio J besides no mess and speed is that I ALWAYS have the right sized picture!  It scales the picture in proportion to the photo well!  So for the pictures on this layout, I would have had to make a whole bunch of reprints to be able to make it this way!  I only print 4x6's unless I have a reason to print something different!  I made this layout while on a trip to Chicago when I had wifi access but no space or time to get out my scrapbooking stuff!
 My kids are quite into drawing and making creative works of art!  On this layout the title is Gift of Creativity because they are all getting gifts that require their creativity to use!
Lora got stamps and some retired CTMH ink pads!  I did not use the traditional title box on this layout and just added a title box where I wanted it and sized ti to fit the space!
On the left page below I was able to add Stickease to dress up the blank spots that used to be photo wells!   I even used stitching for the banners and resixed the tringle stickease to fit the stitched banner! Joshua got an art kit and Micah a game called Fibber!
Can you imagine the things you can create on Studio J!?

Want to give it a try?  There is no cost until you order!  There is nothing to buy except the layouts at $6.95 for a 2 page layout!  
There are tons of papers to choose from and lots of layouts including one where you can create you own layout!  You can even use it for photo processing if you want 100 year quality photos!  They even have some new layouts intend for exactly that where you can just drag and drop your photos into the photo wells and go!


Now on to check out what the others have created for the letter G!
