Star Power - Queen and Company

Good morning!
Mary-Ann Maldonado here with a fun way to use your shaker die cuts to their fullest potential.  I was assigned the Stars Shaped Shaker Kit over at Queen & Company, and I incorporated it into my title two times! 
You can see below that I used a cut file for my title from Paper Issues.  I used a FREE cut file and cut it 3 times.  Twice as a background and once in black as shown.  There are three stars in the kit and I chose the one that would best fit in the place of the A.  I filled it with random toppings to help coordinate with the colors in my photo.  
I used the smaller star for the O in Power.  You can sere that I used think strips of papers to create a background for my layout.  Then I journaled on white paper strips and stamped a few sentiments on white as well and tucked them in random places. 
I pepped Rubber Bubbles, Buttons, Opals and Rivets for color and embellishment.
Thank you for stopping by today.  Grab your shaker kits and incorporate them onto your next layout.

Adventure - Fancy Pants

Good morning!

It almost seems fitting to have a great big road sign for a road trip, right?  Well I found a FREE cut file from Paper Issues that works perfectly for the On Our Way Collection from Fancy Pants.  It is called Travel Signs.  



I started with the road map paper, cause its my fave!  I then cut out the cut file and layered my ephemera and photos.  Thats it.  With the large road sign, there was not room for much else.  





I wasn't sure where to place my journaling.  So I printed it really small across the white stripe on the cut file.  Perfect place for it and it does not interfere with the flow of the page.  



Thanks for stopping in today.  Get out those travel photos and get them scrapped!

It's a Boy Thing - Paper Issues

Morning!

A sketch is a great way to get the creative mojo flowing.  
I really need it lately.  

I dug out a photo of 3 of my favorite boys, having fun around a hotel in Philadelphia.  We met their mom to pick them up for a week.  We had the best time.  Wish we could do it again real soon,  I miss them terribly.  

Any-who, I was given a sketch to create a layout over at Paper Issues.  This is what I came up with.  I used Simple Stories Lil Dude from the Paper Issues store.  You can grab what every you need, anytime for 20% off if you use code: Mary-Ann.

Let's Go - Fancy Pants

Morning!

Are you a collector of postcards?  Recently (like several months ago now!) we went to Hershey Park in PA and I collected 2 different ones.  I was thinking that I would use them in the scrapbooking layout that documented the trip.  I did not think that I would cut them and have them be part of my title!  But I love how it looks and you can still can see the advertisement on both of the cards.  I used the On Our Way collection from Fancy Pants and this is only half of the color explosion the collection offers!



Since the title was busy and I had lots of photos, I kept the embellishing to a minimum.  I did use one of the cute frames from the ephemera pack and a few geo tags.  





Instead of my traditional strips of journaling, I contained my information on one of the tickets from the ephemera pack too. 

Simple layout.  But lots of fun.  I included both post cards and I call that a win!

Oh, the cut file is from Paper Issues and it is FREE!  It is called: Let's Go.

Boys Rule - Paper Issues

Paper Issues partnered up with PageMaps to get our creative juices flowing.  Sometimes you just need a nudge.  I certainly do right now.  They provided a few sketchs for our PI team to use.  I had a great time with Simple Stories Lil' Dude.  

For the bottom polka dot paper, I used the FREE cut file from Paper Issues called - Polka Dots.
