back in June I went to my CM consultants open house. I was enjoying some creative time at the make and take station when the kids called about the Chimney sweeep showing up to clean the wood stove and pipe. Turns out he was supposed to do my father in laws house first and went to the wrong house. Anyway I had to pack up and head home without finishing a single recipe. Thankfully I was able to pull it back out during the 4th of July to finish it. Now to print picture for it.
This one is made with the Star Spangled paper pack
This one is a mix of the new sun-kissed and older sunshine getaway.
I'll post them again when they have photos in them
Got another hiking patrol layout done for the scrapbook update...
I created a similar page to the previous one by dragging an olive ink pad across gray paper. I also used the same sticker set. The map is a printable of the park trail system. I outlined the trail we took and journal right on the map.
Where has the summer gone? It’s been a busy time... I dropped two kids off at Ultimook running camp and have an up coming Girl Scout day camp, so my morning work schedule has freed up a little as I'm not currently teaching swim lessons. Yeah me... Now to get the Hiking patol scrapbook updated before Danielle and I head to Mt Hood to help a Brownie troop with their Hiker badge so they can earn their Outdoor journey. Danielle has planned out all the steps for them as she is working on her Leader in Action (LIA) award.
Step #1 ask an expert- We going to share the patrol scrapbook and talk about the different hikes we've done
Step#2 Learn to follow trail signs- we will do an actual course at camp. We’ll also talk about leave no trace principles and how it ties into using and leaving trail signs.
Step #3 Ask an older Girl Scout about what to pack. Danielle wil do a show and tell of her daypack and we will have a discussion and handout of the 10 essentials.
Step #4 Snack- walking Salad
Step #5 Play I spy- Danielle and I have created a trail bingo game that the girls can complete in pairs as we hike.
To get caught up I'm using this sketch from Sketches in Thyme, but rotated it to work with my pieced together panoramic photo of the cascaded range in the mid Willamette valley,
I got to play along with Creative memories online crop this weekend in between the ballet of Girl Scout cookie booths. Only got to enter 2 of the 6 challenges as orchestrating the smooth transitions of cookies, money and booths is a bit time consuming. So glad to be almost half way through the season and am going to escape to a scrap retreat in March. So this might be it for a few weeks, but how knows.
I used older Cm paper. Forgot what it's called, but it's the one with the Hot air balloons (Dream?)
and Challenge #6
I used a year to remember 2 and solid cardstock from Croptoberfest
Last weekend Stick it down hosted an online crop. I tried to play along but life had other ideas for the weekend. Saturday 1/ 27 Danielle and I did a couple hours of service with another scout troop working on their Silver award. Sunday was church and run club. Good thing the deadline to submit layouts ran through the week and into this weekend.
I did manage to get BLIND Scrap challenge done on the day it came out.
1 portrait and 1 landscape 6x4 photo.
2 Patterned papers(12x12)
2 cardstock (one is backing and won't be seen)
a large monogram letter.
Cut along the diagonals on both patterned papers making 2 large triangles.
Adhere to backing cardstock with the right angles on top left and bottom right corners.
Mat each photo with plain cardstock.
Cut a circle the size of a saucer from remaining cardstock.
Ink around this circle if desired then place in top left hand corner so that it goes over the edge.
Trim off excess pieces.
Cut out monogram letter of your choice to fit in the middle of this circle.
Adhere monogram in centre of circle.
Take 3 pieces of ribbon about 5cm long and fold in half.
Staple or use a brad to adhere these to the corner of your photos.
Adhere photos to page.(portrait in the top right corner and landscape in the lower left hand corner, under the monogram circle.
Add journaling or title to the lower right hand corner.
I also got the double page sketch/ tic tac toe challenge done last Saturday too
I used the center row across with the sketch below
to create this fun Halloween layout
This Friday I managed to get in one more challenge with the Grab 5
Here is the list of supplies you need to include in your layout: a stencil, stamping, alpha stickers, sequins and this sketch.
I flipped and rotated the sketch as it didn't want to cover up all the cool stencil work.
I also used a larger photo as it had to have the whole finger in the frame.
I made my own stencil and texture paste. Stamped element is the journaling lines on the arrow
The stencil work reminds me of the shape of the blade on the mandolin that cut Eric's finger and all the round dots look kind of like the texture of a band aid. By far this is my favorite layout of the crop. Wish I could have got more done, maybe next time
Glad to be back to it. Hopefully I'll be able to sneak in a few more layouts during the super bowl
