Layouts, layouts and more layouts!!

So this past weekend was so much fun with all the beautiful inspiration for International Scrapbook Weekend. I had anticipated getting a lot more work done than I did, but I was happy I got some done. I have been focusing more on YouTube and I will have more process videos coming up. The response to my video for Clique Kits hop was wonderful and I thank you all for taking the time to watch. If you aren't a subbie here's my latest video.

Here is the work I did over the weekend for the Hip Kit challenges. There were so many challenges and I truly wanted to do them all, but just did not have the time. 

I hope that you all had a great iNSD. I will be working on a few more challenges and for those that follow me on instagram I am finally unblocked and will be redoing my giveaway with some added prizes.

NSD Scrapbook Jam with Spiegelmom Scraps

Hey everyone!!!! I hope you are all having a fabulous time scrapping this weekend. I am hoping to get caught up on some projects, but with 3 little ones, I am not sure how successful that will be ;) When I was younger you would always find random silly photos of me, days before there were camera cell phones. A lot people don't get to see that silly person anymore as she is hidden beneath my layers, but sometimes she will come out. So I thought I would honor my silly side with a layout for Spiegel Mom's NSD hop with a challenge. For my challenge you are to create a layout using the 3 following ingredients: a stamp, spray ink and a texture paste.

I must say I have quite a few stamps and I rarely if ever use them. So I like to challenge myself often to use them. I used two stamps, the hot air balloon stamp from Creative Retreat and the phrase stamp I believe is from Michael's. I had actually won the April kit from Creative Retreats Instagram post. I loved everything about this kit and had no issues at all working with it.

I also used Spiegelmom's Sunny Smiles and Pink Lagoon sequins. I truly love the quality of her sequins.

This was my first time use Heidi Swapp's metallic texture paste. I love the shimmer effect it leaves and of course this mint green color is one of my favs.

A layout created by me would never be complete without some ink splatter. Some people like enamel dots and then there are those of us that love splatter. I could not live without my spray ink! I also had to add Spiegelmom's feltie clouds. I cannot wait to see what you create.
