VLVS Sept. Challenge

Over on  Viva Las Vegas Stamps they are having their monthly challenge. You can check it out here. 

This is the challenge example- I love the balloon stamp & will have to get it! The challenge is to use vintage colors, steam punk, nature, trees, sky... this theme worked perfectly with my LSNED.  I have a vintage photo with my Mom when I was 3 that I wanted to use. 
After covering my composition book page with scrap paper, I added a 2nd piece of paper stamped with blowing dandelions (love this) and distressed edges. I cut out my tag and continued the dandelions onto the tag. The photo was edited with the Rhonna Designs app- great app!!!! Next I heat embossed the fairy on the moon stamp on a piece of patterned paper & cut her out. Adding the distressed quote & the whimsical  dragonfly, my page was done! 
Awesome these stamps!!

SDC #165

The challenge over on Stampotique this week was to use only 1 stamp on your project. I decided this was perfect for me to work on LSNED. Day 7 was to do a time line of your day so the photo is from Sunday but my timeline was the following day on Monday. That's ok in my kinder more flexible world, it only bothers me when I actually read it. 
I decoupaged a piece of Tim Holtz's cool new tissue paper for my background. Some washi tape on the sides. My tag was just spritzed with Dylusions, dried & stamped with archival ink. I used Janet Klein's medium sunflower stamp. I like that it stands out just by simple straight up stamping. I added my photo & stash alphabets- bam done!

SDC challenge #164

Playing in the Stampotique Designers Challenge this week & the idea was to use animals. I bought this great "Caged Bird" by Roc Nicholas & this was the perfect challenge to use it.  I took a journal page by Misc Me and added my stamps.
The caged bird was stamped on a piece of type card stock. I stamped the "Sunflower" by Janet Klein directly on the page and both were colored in using gel pens so they are fun & glittery. France Papillion's "Barcode" was stamped directly as well & the words from her "Barcode Type" cut from cardstock. Some splatter & my page is ready for some journal work. I will add this into my Project Life when I need more journal space. Come play over at Stampotique!

JYC Day 15-18

Over half way & it is only Sept!!! HAHAHA The cool thing is when I finish this and have it all uploaded I will get to cross it off my agenda/list like 20 times-how much fun is that?!!!
Here is the flip side of the bonus page- totally love this embossed acetate sheet all I did was added some journaling about us going to Wisconsin this year for Christmas.

Page 15 is a layout for my son's 15th birthday. That of course HAD to be documented. Shimelle's prompt was about the Christmas decorations in your house so I just moved that to Day 17. One of the great things about Journal Your Christmas is I can move around the prompts to fit our families holiday, but it gives me great ideas for photo taking. For this page just mainly photos and stickers plus a cute little sizzix pocket with more pics...
Inside the pocket are photos and the gift card from Potbellies where he & I went for his birthday movie-lunch. I am very naughty & quite addicted to gift cards but less good about putting them in my projects so yay!
Day 16- My eldest son gave blood today so I took a photo with him wearing the t-shirt they gave him. As giving blood is the gift of life it fit right in with the holiday! I added a cellphone gift bag to this page which gives it that transparent shiny look, some washi and embellishments. Love the blingy snowflakes!
Page 17 is an envelope. Again this was the prompt from day 15- photos are just a few of the decorations. Going back I realize I need to add some more but luckily I have the envelope so that is an easy fix. Kept it simple with random stickers (deck is glitter red) and pics. The great thing about this project is using up my stash!!!
Inside the pocket is a tag I had made for Stampotique-again using up my stash! Love the chunky glitter ribbon that is on the tag. Even though it isn't part of the color scheme it adds this wintery pop of color.
Day 18: on the back of the envelope is our Christmas movie favorites. Once again I moved a prompt around to suit my project. Day sixteenth prompt was culture & entertainment. Yes not overly traditional but... we do watch the original Grinch every year- must add that. Also might need to add some embellies...
Even though I am doing this way late in September, I have to say it is getting me totally in the mood to start working on more JYC. Hum, I am working a year behind maybe I should play some catch up?

SDC 163

Time for the weekly challenge over at Stampotique #163- this week was to use an old favorite stamp you hadn't used in awhile. I am currently working on Shimelle Lanes Learn Something New Everyday and the prompt was home. I pulled out one of my old favs- Daniel Torrente's Welcome Door. This is fun & messy. I started with some painted deli paper and went from there. The door opens & will have a photo under it. The journaling is about me needing to go through & get rid of stuff but not finding the time/energy to do it- especially when there are way more fun things to do like playing with stamps!
