Here is another travel layout, this time it's pictures from the beautiful city of Brugge in Belgium. The little round photo is of a swan sticking its butt in the air (I have boys).

I used this sketch from Let's Scrap.  Papers are from Basic Grey.

Thanks for looking!

The maritime museum in Amsterdam is called the Scheepvaart museum, it's in a beautiful building with a moat around it. As we walked to the museum, the boys had fun saying "Scheepvaart." Boys will be boys.

Here is my first page of our visit to this museum.

I used the March sketch from Kaisercraft, which can be found here.  Kaisercraft products include papers from the Sandy Toes collection and Check-in collection and the Nautical stamp and die set.

Here is the sketch:

I just got this wonderful stamp set called "Clink" from Your Next Stamp.  Not only do I love the image of the glasses, I love the font for the sentiments.

This first card is based on this color scheme from MarkerPOP. I used copic markers in W2, W4, W6, and 0. I also used Liquid Pearls from Ranger,old Prima flowers, and  My Mind's Eye Meadowlark papers.

My second card is based on this color scheme from Your Next Stamp. I used YNS Black Olive Ink, Copic colors V20, V25, E81, and 0, Liquid pearls from Ranger, and papers from Heartfelt Creations.

Thanks for looking!

Life is better...

Here is a card I made for my husband, the sentiment is completed inside the card...with you.

This card was inspired by the Kaisercraft February Blog challenge which can be found here. The challenge was to use mostly Kaisercraft products and inspiration from this image:

All papers, stamps, and dies are Kaisercraft. The background papers and the sentiment  are from the Sandy Toes collection. The palm tree image is from an older collection called Tropicana and the dark blue border is from the Check-in collection. Stamps are from the Nautical and Rose stamp and die sets.

Here is a layout with photos from a boat ride through the canals of Amsterdam. I love that the patterned paper has an actual map of Amsterdam.

I used this sketch from Let's Scrap. This is also my entry into the Quick Quotes Heart challenge which can be found here. For that challenge,  I used an acrylic heart and the quick quotes Powder puff ink in Mocha Mama and Cherry Blossom. Other products include Graphic 45 papers, YNS tulip stamp colored with copics, October Afternoon heart, Eyelet outlet enamel, and a Creative Embellishments Flair badge.

Thanks for looking!

Cheers to Us!

I made this Valentine for my husband using the "Clink" stamp from Your Next Stamp. I found it very challenging to get the right color for the champagne, so I just put a few different shades on top of one another until I liked the look. The bubbles are Liquid Pearls from Ranger. This was my first time using the Black Olive Ink from YNS and I am very pleased with this ink for stamping and coloring!

This is my entry for sketch #56 from YNS and color challenge #133 from Markerpop.

Thanks for looking!

As I've mentioned previously, my husband went on sabbatical in Utrecht, Netherlands. Here are a couple more pages from our life there. This page is about a local dessert specialty that my son enjoyed at this restaurant. I used this sketch from Stuck?!.

Our apartment was at the far end of the canal shown in this next page. I used the left side of this sketch from Let's Scrap.

Both pages use Basic Grey papers and Dutch-themed stickers from Scrapbook Customs.
