Davis Selfies

Posted on December 10, 2015 by

Hi everyone, I wanted to share the layout I created using the December Main kit.  These kits are definitely some of my favorites, and I loved the page I created of my son's selfies he posted to my phone.

Here are some closeups.

I love the fun colors in this kit, along with the great embellishments.  Thanks for visiting the blog today!

Fussy Cutting Fool

Posted on November 21, 2015 by

Hello my name is Elizabeth, and I love fussy cutting. Ok, not the actual cutting out intricate designs by hand part.. but the part where you can layer and arrange those pieces around the page.. count me in. When I see a glorious flower print like the one below I grab my scissors and get to work. I even love the way a bit of a borders left on looks. 

Once everything is adhered in place I go through and bend or curl up some of the edges. This gives a cool dimension to the layout that it wouldn't have had if I had not been a fussy cutting fool. (not to be confused with cotton headed ninnymuggins.) 

and because I just finished up my projects & these December kits are SO good I wanted to share a little December sneak.. Oh look, more cutting! I can't wait to share the rest!

a little sand and sun

Posted on September 28, 2015 by

Good morning!  Brenda here with my last layout with this months main scrapbook kit.  I think this one was my absolute favorite.  The Crate "Bright" paper was perfect for cutting out my title.  Honestly, the first time I saw that paper I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.  


the layout:

the details:

Don't you just love those gold alphas, too? They are so fun and add the right amount of funky to the page.  Basically they fit my little girl to a "t".  


Thank you for stopping by to have a look!  Hope you have a fantabulous day.

Little notebook

Posted on September 25, 2015 by

Hello, It’s Veera. Today I want to show you a little notebook I made with Paper Camellia’s September Main Scrapbook kit. That gold striped speciality paper from Crate Paper was perfect for making a notebook cover! The paper was sturdy enough to hold all the other papers together.

I decorated the cover with the alpha thickers and a cluster of stickers. I used a bit of extra glue for adhering. This way I can make sure that the embellishments will stay in place.

For the inside pages I used mainly copy paper and some pattern papers  from the kit. As the purpose of this book is really to be a notebook I didn’t decorate the inside pages.

Have you tried making notebooks?

For 18 years, (this November) I will be married to this man. We dated, if you will, for 4 years before that. Sometimes, it doesn't seem that long. I still feel too young to married almost 20 years.
Together, we have seen and done a lot of fun and amazing things. We have traveled with the military, and traveled on vacations. We are raising a beautiful boy with a big heart and have had several pets til the end. When I say 18 years, that seems like forever, but when I look back, it doesn't seem that long at all.
This photo was taken at the batting cages here locally. The sun shinning in the back is pretty cool but HE thinks its a halo! If it were, then it would be over MY head, not his!

Here is what I created with the September Paper Camellia Scrapbooking Main Kit.
When I saw the cork numbers, this is what popped in my head! Well, the idea with the numbers anyway. The rest built from there. The majority of this layout is created with Crate Paper Wonder and the brads are from Simple Stories.
PS - the date stamp you see, that is from Studio Calico and it is NOT included in your main scrapbooking kit. It is just a super cool date punch that I just bought!

Cardstock Starting Point

Posted on September 18, 2015 by

Hello there! Elizabeth here to share my September projects with you. This month I found myself grabbing a sheet on plain white cardstock for every page. It serves as a great starting point and opens up the design possibilities. Mixing and matching lovely papers from the kits is one of the best parts of the process, in my opinion. Here's what I came up with...

Thanks for letting me share my work. Post up in the gallery with your pages and I'll take a peek at what you've been making. You all inspire me!

Hello, It’s Veera. Today I want to show you a layout where I used a lot of the word stickers and die cut phrases as my main embellishments.

I started this layout by adhering the photo and the ”sweet” sticker to the white cardstock. At that point I didn’t have a specific idea how this layout will turnout. I added some paper strips from pattern paper to fill some of the empty space. I lined all the word stickers and die cut phrases to emphasizes the horizontal lines of the paper strips.

Have you used multiple word stickers in one layout?
