Saturdays With LeAnn

Gold Leaf Square Wreath


Welcome back to Weekly Scrapper on this beautiful fall Saturday!  I don’t know about you but I am having the hardest time believing that it is already October!  Time certainly does fly by fast, and because of that we really need to enjoy some time for ourselves.  I hope today will lead you into your craft room and you can take some precious time just for you.  I hope you will receive some wonderful inspiration here that will help you in your creating!  Have a fabulous Saturday, my friends!

Love Silly Smiles By Missy Whidden

Today it is time to grab some of your fun photos from this summer and get those special memories onto scrapbook layouts.  As scrapbookers we know it is all about sharing the memories and preserving the moments.  When people browse through your scrapbook pages and pause with admiration and delight, you know you have created something very special.

This fabulous layout is definitely an eye catcher created by the talented Missy Whidden.  Missy used several of the Maggie Holmes chipboard stickers.  I just love using chipboard as it creates great dimension. Her background has just the right amount of pink and gold spray to give it some contrast. Don’t forget to add fussy cut flowers to add some elegance to the layout.  Missy never ceases to amaze me with her talent.  I would like to say a big thank you to Missy for sharing this with us.  Please come with me over to Little Nugget Creations where you will see a video on just how Missy puts this gorgeous page together.

I love how Sue created both depth and dimension with her canvas.  The different layers really add to the dramatic effect; it’s very showy, isn’t it?  This is such a great mixed media project.  The mixed media background really complements the Halloween feel of the canvas.  Sue is an amazing designer with so much inspiration to share.  I highly recommend visiting her blog Birdcage Craft Studio where she shares a step-by-step tutorial on how she created this outstanding canvas.  I hope you will be inspired to give this a try.  Remember that creativity involves breaking out of your traditional style.  Never hesitate to try something new!
