Scrapdango DT projects & next months BIG event

Aug DT projects for Scrapdango

This month I got to work with the AWESOME Sugar kit featuring Echo Park's Walk in the Park Collection. I TRULY think this is the BEST kit Heather has put together so far. It was AMAZING.

This one is based on the Aug Sketch.

Starting tomorrow Sept 1st we are having another month long event at Scrapdango. Come check it out do some challenges and maybe win a prize.

One last thing before I go. I found out that I won the AUG sketch challenge over at Crate Paper's Blog!!!! WOOHOOOO I'm sooooo excited! Can't wait to get my prize. What's the prize you ask I got to pick a collection that I want so I asked for the FAB Restoration line. Want to see my layout scroll down a couple posts.

Webster's Pages & Crate Paper Challenges

Webster's Pages

There Aug Challenge is to scraplift one of the DT's creations I choose to scrap Lucy's Moderate layout. This is Lucy's layout.

Here is my lift. I had fun distressing all the papers, ripping them,sanding them using my Heidi Swapp distressor.

here is a detail shot also.

Crate Paper

Crate Paper is having a sketch challenge on thier blog for Aug. What a fun sketch they posted. You must use at least 50% Crate Paper.

I used the Orbit collection which I have had forever. So glad to have FINALLY used this fun collection which I have been hording for way to long. My layout is all Crate except for a couple of the alphas. I even created a coordinating brad thanks to my I-top tool.

Christmas Card in Summer

It was actually a lot of fun to get some xmas stuff out and play around with this card. I made a Halloween layout earlier this week too.

I created the card for the Paper Variety blog challenge. I used this adorable collection from My Mind's Eye. I was also able to tackle letter G in the ABC crop over at MSW use girly green.

Imaginisce Sketch

Imaginisce had another great sketch this month.

I used the Scooters Vacation line for this layout because I wanted to use the camera icons since these photos where taken by my DH doing a photo shoot of his niece. She's sooooo adorable!!

Aug kit sneak peek

The reveal is only a couple days away over at Scrapdango with the Augst kits but I got a couple of peeks for you ladies. All I can say is I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this kit (the sugar kit featuring Echo Park's Walk in the Park line). Its amazing and you sooooooooooooooo need to get the add on too. I have used every single paper in the add on and about 3/4 of the sticker sheet. Maybe I should have gotten 2 add ons, LOL!!!

I still have more that I haven't even photographed yet. I think this is Heather's best kit so far. You ROCK Heather!!! Plus Heather just announced on the forum that future kits are going to be packed with more yummy scrap goodies for the same price. WHATTTTTTT!!!! I don't know how she does it!

I used one of the sketches from Your Scrapbook Stash to create the layout below. Its from Liz and features a large heart on the sketch.

July DT reveal

The Scrapdango kit I got to play with in July was We R Memory Keepers 72 & Sunny line. What a fun line, that I haven't found anywhere else.

When I opened the box and saw the chipboard mini album I didn't know what I was going to do. But I took a bunch of really cute pics from 4th of July that I wanted to scrap and really liked the fun shape of the mini album. So I got busy creating only my second mini album ever. I really love how it came out.


I loved this already sewn cardstock, its perfect for me (the non-sewer). After I decided I was DEFINITELY going to use this cardstock then I had to pick what pictures I was going to scrap. I noticed the cute little frog in one of the papers and I knew I had some frog pics somewhere and then I found these great pics of DD and these super tiny frogs.

Next I LOVED the diecut paper included in the kit. I used one of the pages from the mini album as a place to hold my title. I used Glimmer mist around the title (not included in the kit).

Every month we create a sketch that the whole DT creates a layout with the monthly kit. This month the sketch was created by Carly.

I even created a card with this kit and still have tons left to create more.
