Victory & Roar! layout

I just realized I didn't post my monthly class layout on here yet!  As I've shared before I let my Hostess of the month pick out the paper pack we will be using and if they have a theme in mind I'll create something with that in mind.  Well this month Tena wanted to use Victory papers with the adorable Roar! stamp set.  She has an adorable little boy that is getting ready to turn 1 and she wanted to create something fun and cute for his birthday using these.  I used my layouts for a day trip we did to Bozeman to the Museum of the Rockies which was coincidentally on my son's 5th birthday.  We and had his birthday party later that weekend.  Here is my layout.
Supplies used
Victory paper pack
Roar! stamp set
AP cartridge for title
Olive & Colonial White cardstock
Spray pen with Bamboo, Olive & Grey Wool inks.
Durable Studs - Square
Flip Flaps for multiple pictures

Until next post... happy crafting!

Dotty for You layout & H2H Scrapbooking Challenge

I knew when I saw the Dotty for You paper pack just what I would use the big circle paper for, the pictures of my boys playing with bubbles at Grandpa & Grandma's.  I just had not taken the time to stop and put the layout together.  Then I saw the latest Heart 2 Heart Scrapbooking Challenge sketch and knew that would be the layout.  Don't you love when you see something and just know how it is going to come together?  I do!

Here is the H2H sketch.

And here is my layout using this sketch.  I did add an extra picture, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  I used the Dotty for You paper pack, Sunset cardstock for my matting & cut vellum into circles using the AP cartridge & inked the edges with Sky ink to give them the bubble look.
