The ScrapRoom ~ August Doubleshot Kit

Good morning!!!  I am super excited to share two of my layouts today that I created using the ScrapRoom Doubleshot kit for August!  This kit was SOOO fun to work with!  Here is the kit:

Here are my layouts created using the Echo Park Under the Sea part of the kit:
Supplies Used:  Cardstock: Blue from kit, red and yellow from my stash (Stampin' Up); Patterned Paper: Echo Park Under the Sea from kit; Stickers: Echo Park under the Sea (from the kit); enamel dots: My Minds Eye (from my stash) & yellow twine Lawn Fawn from my stash 
Supplies used:  Cardstock: Red from the kit and Yellow by Stampin' Up from my stash; Patterned Paper: Echo Park under the Sea from the kit; Stickers: Echo Park Under the Sea from the kit; enamel dots: My Minds Eye from my stash.

These picture of my niece and nephew at the beach in Pensacola Florida were perfect for these papers! I love that these papers and stickers are so fun and so bright!! So fun to work with!! Plus you receive an ENTIRE sheet of stickers to work with, how amazing is that????   I have plenty left over to make at least another 2-3 layouts!! Wow! And this is just half of the kit, the other part of the kit is Fancy Pants Hello Sunshine and is super fabulous as well!  I will be back in a few days to show you the layout I created from that part of the kit!  If you are looking for a super kit club make sure and stop by The ScrapRoom store, there are several kits to chose from to meet everyone's needs and satisfy any taste!  The best part is the store has lots of incredible goodies as well and if you order extras from the store they ship free with your kit each month!  WOW!!  I hope you will stop by The ScrapRoom blog and see what the other members of the DT came up with using the wonderful August kits!!! Happy creating!

Fun with challenges!

My niece was at it again today!  I think we may have created a monster lol! She has decided she loves to participate in all the fun challenge blogs there are out there!  I think she and I agree on one thing, there is not enough hours in the day to create and play!  Here is her first ever scrapbook layout:
She did this entirely on her own, the only thing I helped with was to explain how to use a sketch and how to use the tape runner.  She did have a newbie scrappers mishap when she accidentally applied the tape runner to the wrong side of the paper!  But I know I still do that on occasion!  She is a whiz at cutting paper and measuring before she cuts so I think she makes an awesome scrapbooker!  Given that she is only 9 years old I think she will just get better and better as she practices!  This layout was made using the sketch at Sketch N Scrap for August 1st.  She is also entering into the challenge at Lasting Memories Layout challenge blog for challenge #356: In the House.  The challenge is to make a layout about a in house pet or animal and she is using picture of her and her cat Mack!  I think she did an awesome job with the challenge and sketch don't you?  She is an animal lover so I think this challenge was right up her alley!

Next up is her card she created for her Gram using the sketch at  Clean & Simple Stamping using sketch #27

 Here is her card using the sketch:

Once again very little to no help from me, she did need help with the embossing folder and the punch for the scallop but other then that it was all her ideas and stamping!  I thought she did a spectacular job on stamping the sentiment!  Today we learned how to color an image using markers, she likes that technique as she loves to color!
Katie would like to thank everyone for looking at her projects today!  Thanks for stopping by!

Stick It Down ~ I love cats!

We spent the day making cards today!  We had a lot of fun playing around with different sketches and even creating a few cards of our own design!  Today my niece Katie decided she wanted to get in on the fun and enter a challenge or two.  She was able to complete one card for the Stick it Down challenge!  Here is the August card sketch from Stick it Down:
Here is Katie's card:


Here she is all smiles with her completed project!


Katie is just 9 years old and this is her first time to use a sketch!  I think she did a great job don't you?  I think we have a budding sketch challenge junkie on our hands!  Tomorrow we are tackling a layout sketch!  Have a great weekend and happy creating!
