Building Blocks of Friendship

Welcome to the Scrap Factory Brick People Blog Hop!


You’re sure to find some inspiration from the amazing projects created by our Design Team and Guests.

I used the brick people in this layout of my son and his two close friends.  I tried to recreated each brick person to capture each kid's individual personality.   I first thought of titling this page "Building Blocks of Friendship"  and then I smiled because these kids are always goofing and laughing and thought a more appropriate title would be "Blockhead Friends."  lol!  I stayed conservative and went with "Best Buds."   

For the face images I used stamps for Peachy Keen.

Graduation is here again.

It seems like all the kids in my family are graduating this year, from High School or University.   Let the card making being! (and somewhere in there I need to make my Mom a card - Mother's Day is just around the corner.

My so humorous husband asked me to make a card for me, from him......don't you just want to smack him? LOL....Yes he makes me laugh.

For my niece, I was able to put this together pretty quickly, which is a miracle for me.

For the cap, gown and diploma, I snagged the outfit from Scappydew's Graduation 2013 Pattern.  This cut file has been my go to file for graduations. (AND yes I made the little tassel....sometimes I wonder what possesses me.)

The banners were cut using framelit dies, as well as, the little flower and label.  All of these items can be found at The Stamps of Life.  

God Bless,

Scrappydew Blog Hop

Welcome to the Scrap Factory Doll-A-Palooza Blog Hop!

We have Amazing creations to share with you from the PPbN Designs and ScrappyDew Creations design teams. Sit back, relax and enjoy the Hop!!
Hello Scrappydew Fans!  You should have arrived here from Michelle's blog.    Wasn't Melissa's project darling?  Love that little bear.    I'm so excited to be part of this blog hop!  It's my very first, so hopefully I get this right.  :)
Well here it goes!  I made two projects, one using the Basic Expansion pack and the other using the Brick People pack.

Enough talking and now for some showing!  From the Basic Expansion pack I created this simple Easter stand up card:

The papers were all scraps I had laying around.  I used Sizzix stand up card die and matching nesting framelits for the label.  The border was cut using Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border Punch.   The chick, tulip and egg basket are all 2x2 Quickutz dies (these dies are now retired).  "Blessed" was stamped using a retired Close To My Heart Stamp Set.  The felt flower I purchased years ago from Stampin Up.

Using the Brick People expansion set, I made my son's graduation card.  This card may not make sense to anyone, but it has many elements that my son will recognize.

Not only did I use the Brick People expansion pack, but also Scrappydew's Graduation pattern. (please note I took some creative licence to adjust the gown to fit my little brick guy.  :) 

Again the papers were just scraps lay around.  The stand up card I created very easily.

1.  I cut the base using a 5" x 10" piece of cardstock.
2.  Score the cardstock at 5 and then 7 1/2.  Fold inward (think of a triangle)
3.  Cut the card front 5"x 5", decorate.
4.  Adhere card front to the short side triangle on the base card stock.
5.  I used the label with pop dots as a support to keep the card standing up. 

The tag and stamp are a Stephanie Barnard die and stamp set called minitags2cut
The label was cut with Spellbinder dies - This set was an exclusive set made for Scrapyland.
Class of 2014 was stamped out using Close To My Heart  "You Are My Happy Alphabet."
The diploma is a retired 2x2 die made by Quickutz.  

And no the ribbon is not's beige..... Oh well....bad lighting.  lol.

My son is graduating Baylor University with a degree in Engineering.   Ever since I could remember he loved playing with his blocks.  My Dad began to call him  "The Engineer" since he was old enough to put the blocks together.  The sunglasses are his trademark, because since a baby he always wore sunglasses and in school he was nicknamed "Hollywood."  To give the sunglasses a more realistic look I topped them with Glossy Accents.  

I hope you enjoyed my creations from the Scrap Factory.  I can't wait to see all the new expansion packs Scrappydew will be coming out with. 

Thank you for hopping on by!!!!
