tough stuff.

i haven't been feeling well today. i decided not to get dressed. no shower. it's been LOW KEY. i did mop the floor and i love that! -not the mopping, but the clean part.  seems like everyone is going in different directions this weekend…and i am just hoping for down time. -actually not being on a plane is downtime! yay! 
i got a bunch of photos printed, so i am secretly planning on staying up late and doing some scrapbooking… i whipped these together last night- they are SUPER simple.. but i wanted to show off how simple it is to take a printable 8×10 sheet from House of 3, and use it to put together a 12" layout. 

here is the final version of the rugby layout:i need to finish listing all the names- i must have gotten distracted! – so if you look at the background- i simply made one cut:

here is a sketch of how i cut up the paper:

so this is not the most impressive sketch- on the right is just the paper- and i simply made one cut 3 1/4" from the right, so i ended up w/ 2 pieces of the background paper-. i then adhered it to the 12" cardstock  kinda staggered… you can see from the sketch on the left, (i tried to label w/ a #1 and #2) – you can see where i put 2 4×6 photos and also used my 2" square punch to create a photo collage in the top right

here is another layout- very simple w/ just basically one cut to the background paper:

IMG_4683
ok, so you can match up the #1 and #2- i just cut on a diagonal- and used the top right part for a photo mat, and the diagonal cut to layer over the top– on the top left of the printed paper…i cut a little piece off and used a circle punch as an extra embellishment… i added a 9×9 piece of Scenic Route graph paper as well.

last one of the night.. again SUPER SIMPLE, but cute photos, and get-it-done qualitY!

so the blue in the set looks great w/ green!  this background is from the skull paper- i got rid of the skull to use on a book that i am making… the "Best of the best" elelment is from the Father's day  kit. 

The "Tough Stuff" kit is now available on House of 3. it's got 11 background pages and 2 element pages… it's a cool kit. only $10 bucks! i will show more as i get it done!  this kicks off our "all boy" ideas effort! in honor of Father's Day!  Capri has been so bugged that i have done like 4 different projects and there are no photos of her! might have to do a 'skull' girl page! wink…

have a great weekend! happy creating!
