X Marks The Crop

Hey yall! I hope you are having a great day today! This weekend I participated in the 'X Marks The Crop' at Treasured Scrapbooking. The whole crop had a pirate theme and it was, without a doubt, the most fun and creative crop I have ever played in!!! I only wish I could of done more. But I did get a few things done. I did some combining on the challenges, so I got more done than I thought I would. Here is what I accomplished:

"Rosey Cheeks"
This is an 8x8 layout, which is always a challenge for me. I have a problem with these because I never feel there is enough room to embellish. I used the Martha Stewart loop border punch for the layering on the bottom. The alpha's were cut with my Cricut using my SCAL software.

This one was for a blindfold challenge. You had to have someone else pick out 3 patterned papers, embellishment, and alphabet stickers. Of course, Brandon had to do mine. Now, yall know my husband is great at this sort of thing. He knows all thing scrappy and did a great job....except he picked out the weirdest colors...gray and green! I've never used those together before, so that was a challenge.

I used SCAL for the alphas on this one. I also used the Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page Spiderweb punches. Love those new punches!!!! The corner flourish is from Home Accents and the ship is from Paper Doll Dress Up.

"Be Whooo You Are"
This is my first layout using my new SCAL program with my Cricut. I cut the lettering and the owl with it.

Thanks for stoppin' by! Have a great day!!! Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!

These are all so great! I really want SCAL, but I'm afraid to grab it until my 1 year warranty runs out....but then it's ON! LOL! I'm especially digging the be WHO you are layout. I may have to keep that in mind for a future layout as that is such an important lesson to teach our kids....and what a fun way to scrap it!

WOW! These are just too fantastic!! I think my fav may be the "Be Whoo You Are" page. However, I love the green and grey that Brandon picked out. Oh my, not sure if I CAN pick a fav! Great work gf.
