Love You to the Moon and Back {Scrap the Boys & Paper Issues Pinspire Me Challenges}

I'm on a roll with my pages I'm creating for my students, thanks to some fun challenges. Here's a page I just finished up.

Not the best photo in the world because it's snowing outside, and I had to take it in my scrap room with my iPad.

Here's the sketch I used from the challenge at Scrap the Boys.

I also drew inspiration from this mood board at Paper Issues:

Here are some details. A while ago, I bought this fun varnished alien paper by Kaisercraft on clearance. I fussy cut them, added googly eyes, and adhered them with pop dots. The stars, spaceships, and rockets were cut from the same paper. 

The chipboard circle element is by 2Crafty and I coated it with silver embossing powder. The background paper is by Crate Paper. The black grid is BasicGrey, the red paper is an old Scenic Route paper, the green paper  I used for the tag is old K&Co. paper, and the blue ledger paper behind the photos is old Love, Elsie paper. I originally had just the black star, but I felt like it needed something else, so I cut it out again on my Silhouette in the red paper. That made all the difference in the world!

Here's another shot of some of the monsters. They are so cute! 

That rocket had the number one on it, so I covered it with a star from the paper that I punched with a circle punch and put that on a pop dot. I couldn't fit my title where it was on the sketch, so I added it to the strip at the bottom. I felt like I still needed a title where the title was in the sketch, and I figured I'd use some glittery silver alphas to match the circle. I didn't have a whole lot of space, so I just brainstormed 3-letter words and came up with wow.

This was so fun to make! 


You Are So Awesome {Paper Issues Frame It Up Challenge}

If you've read my blog lately, you know that I'm creating layouts to give to my students as gifts. Here's my latest creation:

My inspiration started with the Frame It Up challenge over at Paper Issues.

I have a thing for monsters and aliens and other such critters on my scrapbook page, and I bought 4 sheets of October Afternoon's Night Light Louie monster paper years ago, and I'm so glad I did because I just never tire of those cute monsters! The background paper is also October Afternoon, as is the green paper. 

I've had these plastic slide mounts in my stash for at least a dozen years, and I thought they'd be perfect for the Frame It Up challenge and to highlight the little monsters. The hello speech bubble and stars are from a sticker pack by MAMBI.

Here's a close up of the title. The chipboard arrows on my page are by 2Crafty.
