Sara and Lora were playing with our new iPad and the photo program including distorting the pictures! They were just perfect for these pages!

 These pages were inspired by Lindsey DeLaMare at Scrapping-by-the-Sea.  These pictures are fro my husband's concert at the Mission San Jose!

Morning Announcements

Micah did the Pledge of Allegiance on the video announcements at School.  Joshua also was there with his class to sing the school song!  It was fun to watch them!

The paper I used was retired Rough and Tumble which was a great boy paper!  The buttons are also retired and I was excited to use some stash for the Child's Play Challenge to use some buttons!  I also used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for the title.

What have you used that you have had in your stash recently?

Baked with Love

My sweet Sara loves to cook!I just had two pictures from this session of baking with Grandma and I knew which sketch I wanted to use!  I found it on Pinterest here!  I also was doing a virtual crop and the challenge was to use blue, yellow and gray.  Going outside of my norm, I pulled out a stamp and Sky, Outdoor Denim, Buttercup and Slate ink pads and started creating!  I inked up the stamp and rubbed some off to make it look more distressed.  I matted the pictures and cut out the title and the page was done!   I couldn't figure out where to put the journaling so I added it above and below the stamping! Not as pretty as the one I got inspiration from but I really like it!  

Going outside the box requires me to be pushed and challenges help me do that as well as get things done!

What helps you do something different or go outside the box?  I will draw a name from those who comment by Tuesday, May 28 and they will receive some CTMH love in the mail!

July 4th - ABC Blog Hop Letter J

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!
For this hop we will be featuring the letter J. This may be the name
of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has
chosen as their J element will be featured in their post.
If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Amber's blog ~ Scrapper's Therapy
If you came from Shelly Nemitz then you're on the right track!

J was a tough one for me. So I thought and thought and realized I was doing a July 4th layout. Problem solved!
I used the retired Fanfare paper (still available on Studio J) since it just seemed perfect! I had loads of pictures and weeded out probably half of them (wish I had done that before I printed them.)
I still managed to get 13 pictures on this layout!  I used the centerpoint feature on the Cricut to cut the star photos with Art Philosophy.  The stars that form the border are also cut with Art Philosophy.  The layout I was using for inspiration had a scalloped border and I wanted to do something different so I cut out three colors of stars in three different sizes and created the border!  Under the larger photo star on the right I added a blue star to help it pop since it was layered on top of another photo!  The title is cut with the Artiste Cartridge!  

For those of you wondering what the centerpoint feature on the Cricut is...I eyeballed the center of the area on the photo I wanted to cut in a star shape and moved the blade to the center.  The center point button on an Expression Cricut is on the left and I just pressed it and chose my shape and size and cut.  Instantly a star shaped picture!

Hope you enjoyed the visit!
