YouTube 500 subscribers giveaway!!

HI everyone!  I started my YouTube channel just this year and decided when I hit 500 subscribers I would host a giveaway.  I hit that last weekend and so here it is.

Here are the rules:
  1. Scraplift me!!  Find a layout of mine that I have posted a process video of (12x12 or Project Life) and use ANY aspect of it to create your own.  And I do mean anything!! Straight scraplift, colour, title, orientation, whatever.
  2. Post a link to your creation in the comments for my 500 subscribers video (the one above) and tell me which layout you lifted.  (Sorry but posting it anywhere else and I will not count it. It is far too hard to keep track.)
  3. Deadline to enter is JUNE 1ST!!
  4. Open to internationals and the prize is international friendly!!

What is the prize???

Glad you asked :)  It is a $50 gift certificate to Mei Li Paperie store!! This is no coincidence that they ship internationally and that at $50 USD (which is what the card will be) they offer free shipping.  I don't want you, my winner, to have to pay for shipping your new goodies.

 So get your entries in!!

A 2-photo layout and process video

Good afternoon!!

A super quick process video today to share with you. I sat down earlier this afternoon and just needed to put scissors to paper and cranked this out in about 40 mins total.  I hope you enjoy.

I used my March Hip Kit for all supplies with some Pinkfresh Studios from my stash that actually was included in one of the add on kits this month too (but I'd already ordered it!)

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Just wanted to share my layout playing along with this sketch over at the Let's Get Sketchy blog.

I did this layout using the March Hip Kit which has lots of Craft Market (Crate Paper) and some Pinkfresh supplies from my own stash.

Week 5 - Let's Get Sketchy challenge

Hi everyone!  I have been away and not getting any scrapping done but while I was away I got lots of super cute photos of my nieces for pages.  Here is my first one of my 2-year-old niece from my trip up to see her and her new baby sister.

I played along with this new blog I just found called "Let's Get Sketchy".  This week it was a sketch and moodboard.  Here is their sketch:

And here is their moodboard:

I loved the springy colours and raided my stash for some fun and fresh spring colours.  Here is my take on it:

And a couple of close ups:


I used quite a bit of the first Shimelle collection for papers and die cuts.  I also had made that background paper myself using Heidi Swapp mists and using this die cut called The Heart Felt from The Cut Shoppe as a mask. 

Thanks for stopping by!  

Oh, also, I already posted about it but Let's Get Sketchy is currently having a design team call.  You have until April 8th to try out.

Thanks for stopping by!!
