Redefine Kreative

 I’m playing along with the Redefine Kreative Facebook group on the December daily challenge.  Crate at least 15 minutes a day.  So far I’ve got 4 days in a row.  Super excited to share yet another road trip layout.

And a peak at my score card

EP- “Go,See,Do” kill a kit


Killing another TSR kit.  Every month the scraproom has a kill a kit challenge.  I picked two travel-themed TSR kits to use.  The first one was  Simple Sotries " Travel Note" and this one by Echo Park "Go,See, Do"

Here's what the kit looked like to start with. 
2 white card stock
3 patterned papers
die cuts and clear epoxy stickers

This is Day 5 and 6 of our road trip- Arches National Park day 5.  Super hot and crowded, but beautiful.
Day 6 was a travel day with a brief lunch stop at Eagle creek water sports park.

Day 7 was our first day in Colorado Springs. 
 We hiked in Garden of the Gods and finished the day with a run in the thunderstorm

The embellishment clusters are a mix of the SS kit leftovers, word phrases, and enamel dots

This last layout is three days' worth of fun.
Day 8 was the 4th of July so we did a short walk at Memorial park before going to my brothers for dinner
Day 9 was a trip to Cave of the Winds and dinner at bonefish
Day 10 was Old Colorado Springs along with a trip to the El Paso County Museum

 And this is all I have left

TSR Kit killing

 I’ve finally started working on our summer road trip and did the first 3 days using my Simple Stories lTravel Note” kit from 6/2018.  Got 3 two page layouts done and don’t have much left from the kit.  I was originally going to mix kits so that the colors and embellishments through out but with 14 day to document I’m not going to be able to stretch the two kits I have.

Day one was a stop @ Clearwater Creek, Crater Lake and over night in Klamath Falls (Piano Project)

Day 2 morning run along the Klamath River and then Lava Beds National Monument 

Day 3 we drove straight thru Nevada and stopped in Windover for the night so this layout is actually day 4 of the road trip.  Might have to change the title.  
This layout is of our morning run which was in Nevada but the rest of the the rest of the day was in Utah.
Lepton Hills trail, visit to Wendover air base.  Home of the Ebola Gay hanger, Temple Square, and the Salt flats.

I’m still trying to get in 15 minutes of creating a day and have a new color chart as I’m also playing along with redefine kreative

TSR throwback

 This is for the November scrap room throwback sketch.  

I've had the American Crafts "Dear Lizzy" kits in my stash for a while as I put my membership on pause during the start of the pandemic when I was job sharing and uncertain as to what I could afford. (May 2020) so I know that the kits are at least a year old if not older.  

I did two photos in place of one 4 x6 and also changed up the visual triangle.
I used the birds as the three points nesting the smaller puffy sticker birds on the cut apart frames.
skipping using a title too as I want the words on the background paper to stand out.
Finished it all off with a bit of journaling on the bottom piece of paper

Stash bash with a sketch

I love pairing sketches with stash challenges.  It gives me the opportunity to dive into my stash while not having to overthink the creative process of the layout.  Lasting memories most recent stash bash challenge is to use wood veneer, flair and/ or buttons- LM #574
I don't have much in the way of flair so I grabbed the next best thing- oversized pearl brad.  I also used a wood title and a smattering of buttons to document this year's harvest.

The buttons, brad, and title are from my stash everything else that I used is from my Fancy pants "good old days" kit from the scraproom kit club.  I'm currently on a pause from the monthly kits as I'm trying to work through my current stash of kits, so this challenge is perfect to help me make a dent

as for the sketch, it's another from the CM November virtual crop #1

Bubble tea

Another two challenges in one layout.

I used a single piece of pink washi, a bunch of stickers that coordinate with the paper and various circle punches 

I made the center paper 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 so that I could use the salvage flip side for the circles.  Switched journal location and forgoing a title.  I tend to not use titles on layouts and let the photos and journaling tell the story.

PTC relay

CM had a virtual crop this weekend so I snagged this sketch to use.  I don’t play along with the crop as I typically don’t use a lot of CM papers.  Anyway I flipped the sketch and then dropped the circle.  I love the heart background paper and didn’t want to cover it up. 

My photos are in reverse order of how my daughter ran her legs of the relay because I really wanted her last leg photo to be the featured photo.  6 plus miles in the dark and then sunrise leg.  I’ll have her journal on the notebook paper boarder down the side of the photos as I wasn’t there for the event

November sketch challenge

 Back with another layout for 2021 using Rochelle Spears November sketch challenge.  For the last retreat I attended I worked on pairing photos with paper kits and I really wanted to use a pre made page that has been languishing in my stash but it was meant for 3 4x6 photos and I only had two.  The dilemma use the page or find a new pairing.  We’ll I deconstructed the original layout and salvaged the elements.

Here’s the sketch:
