Using the same design sort of

I'm okay with that.
Just got this fun paper on sale from Studio Calico
shopping on the road LOL.
 It's perfect for two little boys checking crab tracks
at the shore.
 I was in a giddy mood at the time
and gave the ole crab googly eyes.
Tossed some mists about.
Love these layers of old scraps.

Transparency AND a saying

This paper as you can see is a remnant
of the mist spilling disaster from here - it happened
to be tucked under the other papers and
I didn't catch it til now.
However the way it spilled out it came out kinda cool.
 So I found some embellies that work really well with 
page that is watery looking.
I have no clue what mfg. they are.
 Also loved that transparency from Studio Calico
and thought it went well with the paper and photo.
I shared the other half with my pal Holli.
And I made the photo crooked to match the saying.
Do you know how hard that is for me to do???
I'm soooo about lining things up.
Love I stepped out of the box.

Sewing around the edges

This page of brothers just needed that
something extra to bring it all together.
If you'll notice that tag - you saw that same tag top
on yesterday's page.
Funny story that.
I tucked it into the envelope to see if it would fit.
and when I glued everything down
it appears that the glue bled through and
it stuck to the envelop.
I therefore, cut the top off because I wanted to
journal on that card and made 
another tag to tuck in there.

 Kept everything to a minimum
because the photo is fun.
Tucked some vellum in there because it looked cool.
And the title is from that packet I got from M's.
Those titles have really come in handy.
Studio Calico, Bella Blvd. Unknown envelope and button.

Using scrap strips

Still trying to use up some scraps.
And stickers - Basic Grey.
And it's perfect for the photo.
 Love all the fun layers.
I did change the strips from horizontal to vertical.
 I'm in the front getting this photo and Kevin
was on the side so he got Annie
trying to go for the rabbit ears and if you look
close so is Owen.
Poor grandpop had no clue. LOL.
All Basic Grey except the mist and enamel stars.

Scrappin' my scraps

Since I've been home I've been binging on scrapbooking videos
and got this great idea from Tori Bissell and
her thing is scrap your scraps.
So she did one that looked like an old ledger paper
and invoices collage she saw.

Mine turned out more calico. 
I decided to use black cardstock as a backing
 mostly because everyone
else is using white.
Quite the renegade I am.
It also made everything pop!
I have a ton of papers in my scrap box and I'll do
this again. I randomly (sortof) picked out papers and
slapped them down.
 I didn't think of photographing it as I did
it until it was over. 
I also used bits of cutout papers too.
Once I adhered it all I gessoed it all -to make
it a bit cohesive and tone down the bright.
 Did a bit of random stamping -
 Also did the packaging technique 
to bring all the wild colors together.
Added a doily to ground the photos.
The photos are a hoot - me and Amelia doing snapchat.
I really love how it turned out-very fun and funky.
Check out Tori - she's a very lovely lady with some great ideas.

Oh and the edges were very um....edgy which made
me crazy so I cut out the middle
of 8.5x11 black cardstock and used the edge and made those
edges quite lovely.
