Two TaDa Creative Studios projects in one post

If your here for the XOXO blog hop check out the post below.

For this layout I pulled out the TaDa Creative Studios BFF Collection and didn’t know what I was going to do with it when I first sat down to scrap. After pulling out the papers and looking at them I had an idea and I ran with it.

I started with the Oooh La La Layers Petal Pals in Tank Green it was the perfect way to showcase pieces from all of the papers in the collection.

To make it easy to fit the patterned papers in the petals I traced a petal onto vellum and used that as a template. I used the majority of the Petal Pals, but I did cut it a bit so there was some empty space for my photo to rest on. Underneath the photo I cut a strip from the backside of the Pink Paisley paper, used a decorative edge punch and then folded some of it to act a little more like ribbon than paper.

When folding the paper like this it does add some bulk under the picture so I add a piece of cardboard from packaging just slightly smaller than the photo to keep the photo from shifting in any way. I then added the title and a couple Stickies from the BFF collection and done.

Sketches in Thyme is having a DT Call right now. To be considered for the team you need to create a layout based on the sketch.

So I pulled out some American Crafts Amy Tangerine papers, Fabric Stickers & Thickers, Studio Calico Fabrips, mixed with some misc embellies from Sassafras, Maya Road, Authentique, Crate Paper and Kaiser Crafts crocheted flower.

Creative Scrappers
This week over at Creative Scrappers they featured sketch #177. Its a great sketch and worked well with this photo of my DD and DH which I recently had printed. We were at a Cowboy themed party and were supposed to dress up. I remembered about this great TaDa Creative Studios Collection - Goody Two Shoes. The plaid paper reminded me of the cowboy shirts and a couple of the papers which I cut to use more as an embellishment featured cowboy boots and hats, how perfect!! I distressed all the papers and added a touch of twine to the photo and title block to add the final down on the farm cowboy touch.

Sassy Lil' Sketches
While watching the baseball game, and our team LOSING badly I decided to scrap and created this card based on a Sassy Lil' Sketches card sketch #8. I'm very sad that October is the last month that Sassy Lil' Sketches will be open. I used a SRM Sticker and an older Bo Bunny Collection -Sophie which I LOVE and only have tiny scraps left of (I'm very sad).
