He's Trouble but he makes me so Happy!

I'm back to share this simple design I made for Boys Rule Kits.  It features a great, solid design choices from Echo Park, Fancy Pants, Adornit and FabScraps. I love that all these pieces were chosen with care and flexibility in mind.

I began by sponging white craft ink on the corners of the design and adding splotches of glimmer mist in bronze. I also added some blue stitches and a few scraps with a little round sticker in the upper corner.
There were also a few little tabs and a heart for colour and flow. The pops of red are great accents and all over this kit from Boys Rule.
Finally, I used the remaining glimmer mist and a paint brush onto the Fabscraps "Trouble|  and finished out the colour with distress ink from Tim Holtz. The rest of the title piece is from the sticker sheet included. The torn edge along the yellow mounted strip really adds texture too.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that I have inspired you today! Until next time, keep doing what you love to do!

And a cute Thank You card:
I hope they inspire... I am loving the grey and yellow.

Get un-Stuck!? with Puppy Love and a New Sketch!

Good morning! I am so excited to create my very first layout of our new puppy, Remy. He isn't home yet as he's only 5 weeks, but we go and visit and give him lots of Puppy love.  He is helping us heal the loss of or wonderful Bobo and we are so grateful to have had TWO wonderful Boston Terriers to love and to love us.
I adore this photo of Adriane and Remy and it is such a gentle and sweet photo I wanted to use a largely monochromatic palette to let the photo pop. I added some inked red hearts though to symbolize the LOVE I see when I look at this photo.
 I also used the doily to add texture to the chipboard heart in the lower right. The flow-y script font I chose for my title was perfect (if I do say so myself!)

Finally, can you see the negative inked hearts? I really liked trying this on this design and will include it in future ones..maybe with a font? Hmmm...
I hope you've been inspired! Here's the sketch I used as designed by the talented Laura Whitaker at Stuck?!
