NO RULES ! ! ! ! !

Now this is the challenge I've been waiting for no rules just let the creative juices flow.  Well If you've been checking in lately you know I've been trying to finish scrapping my summer vacation pics before the Christmas photos start rolling in.  I LOVE the WANDERFUL B&T papers and for this layout I used the workshop on the go featured on pg 113 in the Annual Inspirations Catalog.  So this layout has ink, embellishments, stamps and B&T papers!!!! I feel SO liberated!!!!  The only thing I changed was the size of the photo boxes to fit what I wanted them for and some of the bling to match my tastes.  this layout came together super quick since the instructions where all right there in the Workshop kit for me.

NO B&T paper ! ! ! ! ! !

This by far was the toughest challenge this month to SCRAP a layout with NO B&T paper!!!! Oh my . . . I mean lets face it that it is one of the reasons I'm a consultant because I'm addicted to the papers CTMH carries.  I love there weight and that they are double sided and well you get the picture so for this layout I decided to go to my stash and see what I had leftover from my BC days (before consultant) and I found some paper studios glitter paper.  Oh glitter can take away any crafting blockages my brain is having.  Since my son was sweet enough to take some pictures last summer of the softball team I played on I new these would work GREAT with a two tone layout.  I used my Artbooking cartridge to cut the overlay out of Pacifica carstock. I then used some of the glitter scraps to peek out of random areas on the overlay. Mounted all my pictures with gold glitter paper and cut my softball using my old sizzix lollipop set.

No Embellishments

Oh how these no challenges and I have gotten along.  I initially thought there was No way I would be able to stay true to these challenges but with the Picture My Life Scrapbooking program these pages came together SO fast and I do not even miss all the NO items.  This page uses 4 of the 3x4 cards from the Wanderful set and 1 4x6 card from the Surf's Up Picture My Life set.   Both of these and many more can be found on pg 147 for 24.95 each.
Now to be inspired by more of really NO Embellishments follow this link H2H.

NO way NO Stamping !!!!

This month Heart to heart is focusing on NO for the challenges.  This weeks challenge is NO stamping oh boy I have a feeling this month is going to be tough for a lot of crafters myself included.

For this challenge I finally had time to scrap some of our vacation photos from Canada and for the NO stamping challenge I decided to use the Wanderful Picture My Life kit featured on page 147 of the annual inspirations catalog. I used the Designer cover and some washi tape that is it then this page eas ready for me to add some journaling and tucked into a book.  Fast and simple. So here is my first layout.
