Sundays With Lorraine


Welcome to Weekly Scrapper! It makes me smile knowing that you’ve found some “ME” time to get your craft on. Sundays are special to me because this is when I get to share my passion for crafting with you when we’re not creating at a Scrapbook Expo. So sit back, relax , and enjoy today’s inspiration.

Little Fishy by Missy Whidden

Let’s start out with this adorable layout/sketch designed by the very talented Missy Whidden, hostess of the blog Little Nugget Creations. This sketch is perfect for those instagram photos or any small photo because the entire top half of the layout has a grid design which is perfect for highlighting your small photos. What a great way to incorporate multiple photos on your layouts.

I love how Missy watercolored the black and white patterned paper by Echo Park (Capture Life collection) while adding lots of color to the design. You know how I love any chance to add a good watercolor technique.

I hope that you’ve been as inspired as I was by this fun layout. My daughter is printing out some Instagram photos as we speak (or should I say, as I write 😉 ). Keep up the very important responsibility of preserving your journey through life one photo and fuzzy story at a time.

Come Sail Away

Do you struggle with designing the perfect masculine-themed card, like I do? if so, you’re gonna love this nautical-themed card that I discovered on Debby Yate’s blog, A Scrap Journey. I’d like to send out a virtual hug to Debby for sharing.

Come Sail Away

Debby created the oval shape by masking off a section over the main image using one of the Spellbinder Nestabilities. Keep up the amazing job of spreading those smiles one handmade card at a time.

Live Your Dream

What’s not to love about a great, shabby chic, distressed project inspired by the master of grunge, Tim himself. Jennie did an amazing job incorporating lots of yummy textures, layering, and inking on this gorgeous tag. I highly recommend stopping by Tim’s blog A Vintage Journey where Jennie shares her step-by-step instructions on how she created this vintage-inspired tag. You definitely don’t want to miss out on her great tips and techniques.

You are just a few simple techniques away from creating a gorgeous, vintage-inspired tag. Remember to always have fun with your art! Live on the wild side and be fearless when it comes to your creativity; if you don’t you will never know just how creative you really are.

Live and Learn Altered Domino Book

The theme of this unique altered domino mini album is “Anything Goes.” This piece may be small in size but it has a huge sentimental message. I highly recommend that you hop on over and spend some time with Brenda anytime you’re needing a little fuzzy inspiration.

Checkout the gorgeous interior; I can see this with a few special photos added to the pages and given as a pishky (little gift) to someone special.

Easy Beef Lo Mein

Many of you know that my absolute favorite food is Chinese food, so it makes me happy to share this easy and oh-so-tasty dish that I discovered on the Menu Musings of a Modern American Mom blog.

I hope you give this yummy dish a try; you’re gonna love it! I know it goes against my usual “dinner in under half-an-hour” but it’s definitely worth the extra 15 minutes. 🙂

Click here and I will take you over to the Menu Musings of a Modern American Mom so you can print out the recipe; Julie also has lots of step-by-step photos along with the recipe. Bon appetit!

I hope that you’ve been inspired by today’s post. Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you next weekend.
