Okay, tell me I can't scrapbook my grandson's life without photos! I don't get many photos of his activities, so I resorted to using a comic and Facebook post that depicts our lives during the pandemic. The layout is inspired by Tucson's Snippy Scrappers, Creative Memories consultants. I added some silhouette karate images. Perfect for the times, huh?

All in all, pretty clean and simple layout, but the Best of Autumn papers lend themselves well to rustic outdoor layouts, which is what I wanted here. Be sure to stop by the We Are 3 Facebook page to see other fabby creations by the rest of the team. We LOVE to see what you create, as well.

Good morning! Hope you had a lovely weekend. The card is inspired by this week's Featured Stamper card at Splitcoast. The card I CASED was inked, but i instead created the effect with digital patterned papers from Ladybug Lace Too. The sentiment is We Are 3's Baby Wishes.

This is for the Stick It Down Sketch Challenge. I did flip the sketch - both vertically and horizontally. My sweet train-patterned papers are a birthday gift to me from Bonnie at We Are 3. The gorgeous paper is Trains and goes well with Best of Autumn that I have been using for my current scrapbook. I added some Trains printables that Bonnie also created for me, as well as the Travel sentiments I used on the page.
This layout is inspired by the single-page layout sketch at Stick It Down! I used Best of Autumn papers. The sentiment is from my stash of alphabet pages I bought when I first started scrapbooking.

Happy Birthday to me! My birthday month has arrived, which truly only brings thoughts of getting older. Bonnie at We Are 3 is helping me celebrate with paper, printables, and sentiments - oh, my! These train-themed digitals (Bonnie knows me!) are perfect for the new Outlawz Progressive Freebie challenge - I added Tea Time to my cards for a little steampunk.
A pretty simple card - no dimension. But a lot of people actually have trouble with single-layered designs. I digitally filled a swatch with the striped design from Thankful, and placed that on top of the dotted paper. I added the sentiment from the Autumn set - and the Hearts and Home Birdie. We have great inspiration at Paper Ala Mode.

This card is for the Creative Confetti Challenge at Power Poppy using Black-Eyed Susan and a sentiment from Irresistible Peonies - all from Power Poppy. For some reason, I love to color my Black-Eyed Susans blue - I think they are just the cutest. They're colored digitally. The background paper is from Tea Time by We Are 3. I also made a strip of paper with Black-Eyed Susans to show through the vellum. This week's theme is "Make It Your Way" - with elements provided based on birth month and initials. As usual, I skimmed instructions and found after the card was made that I was to use both initials - I only used C for pink - and my birth month August called for vellum.
Today I bring you my version of a slider card shared by Susan Bossiere.
Glorious and Fairy Dreams.

Happy Sunday! Nothing fancy here. I just created a border with digital elements from Digital Crea. I changed the transparency for the background to give it subtle color. The sentiment is from Creative Fabrica.

This week We Are 3 released a new collection - Fairy Dreams. Of course, I just had to play!
I just used a strip of the gorgeous paper - love the colors in this paper. The entire collection is a fabulous assortment, so be sure to have a look.
I recently have begun creating fairy-themed cards here and there. They can be ADDICTING! Of course, one of the reasons I like them is they lend themselves well to single-layer cards. This new release from We Are 3 is Fairy Dreams - so I decided to use the Dragonfly Keeper and surround her with Wild Mushrooms and Fairy Fir Trees. And there you go! I'm entering this in the Anything Lavinia challenge.

I was so excited to have been inspired by a card in one of my favorite Facebook groups, I just had to try this watercolor technique "digitally."
The leaves are glued in one spot for dimension. The sentiment is Robyn Gough Designs Love Word Art. I forgot to plan for the sentiment - so it ended up printing too close to my design. :(

Oh, what fun the current Power Poppy Creative Confetti Challenge is this week. They are celebrating "Mini Me!" I just love little versions of things - if you ever visit Tucson, be sure to visit the Miniature Museum! The papers for my standard A2 card and it's Mini-Me version gift card are from We Are 3 - I combined paper from Just Autumn and Romantic Hearts. The cupcake is Watermelon Cupcake.
For the lacy shaped matting behind the cupcake, I used a doily from Monica's Creative Room. I printed the layers because the details are much too small for my machine to cut.
I just know you'll want to play along with this fun challenge. See ya there!

Happy Wednesday! My layout today is for my grandson's scrapbook. We are able to videochat from time to time - but what he really enjoys is the app with all the different faces - - which he refers to as "that Facey Game." My papers are from Little Scraps of Heaven - Kawaii Ornament Digi Kit. The title is done with punch-out alphabet letters I purchased when I first started scrapbooking. All the embellishments are from my stash.

Yikes! I've been avoiding Walmart and sending photos to be processed only 1-2 times a month. Hard to keep all these empty layouts straight! This layout is featuring artwork from neighborhood kids - drawings they made for us for birthdays and hospital stays and just because. I love their thoughtful artwork and especially their excited faces when they give us their handmade cards - I have such a hard time tossing them! So decided instead they belong in my scrapbooks. So here's just a tasted of my neighborhood art talent.
The papers are from We Are 3 - Best of Autumn. Be sure to stop by the We Are 3 Facebook page to see all the gorgeous work from the design team.
