I just finished this page this morning. I figured I should get her 5 year page done since she turned 6 yesterday!

I found inspiration at Jessica Sprague. Lots of cute stuff there.

products from Stampin up, Cosmo Cricket, & Cricut.

Thanks for looking!

It's a new year and I'm way behind

This is a pretty simple design, but wouldn't you know it took me nearly an hour to do? That is what happens when it's been over a year since I've done a layout. I'm totally out of rhythm. I thought I would get some done since I'm on break from school. I did get 2 pages done this morning anyways.

So here's to a new year, and hopefully some catching up in my scrapbooks!
Thanks for stopping by!

New Decor Elements

Oh, my word, I love Stampin' Up's new Decor elements catalog! When I first saw this eat/fork image I knew I had to have it!! I've actually had it for quite some time (may or june maybe?) but I've just needed a chance to paint my kitchen before I put it up. And I finally quit procrastinating and did it! It took a week to do, so yes my procrastinating was justified :)

Other news...I am not a demonstrator anymore, I'm sad about that. I decided it was time to leave because other areas of my life are demanding and I needed to let SU go. I still hope to keep this blog and post every now and then, that is when I actually get time to scrapbook!! :)

have a good week!!

9 month page: using Summer Home Kit

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. We sure did and my pants are screaming for me to stop eating! LOL!
Yesterday was my daughter's 1st birthday and I forced myself to get her scrapbook up to date. This is her 9 month page using the Summer Home Simply Scrappin Kit. The colors are so beautiful and the elements are awesome. For the title I used some thickers. And the ribbon is the 1" Blue Bayou stitched grosgrain.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll post again later this week!

Snow Burst

Hi! I am so sorry it's been so long since my last post. I'm pushing a month now. But I'm hoping to do this more often when Christmas break comes! Thanks for coming back and reading this! Wait, is there anyone that still reads this? LOL
I cannot remember the last time I have made a card. I bet it's been nearly 2 months! This one uses the Snow Burst & Heard from the Heart sets.

Well, I'll keep it short. It's a school day and I don't like to keep myself occupied with things.
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

a little behind

yeah, this picture is from a year ago (sept) and I finally got around to scrapping it. In fact, I've been in a scrappy mood and I'm now only 6 months behind! And I just bought a scrapbook yesterday and stuffed all of my finished layouts in there, added refill pages, and still filled it up with more layouts waiting to be put in another album.
I love this layout. I love it so much I think I've used it 3 times this last week. I do so many 1-picture layouts and this is the perfect page for that.
Have a great weekend!

Fall Layout

I'm always looking for inspiration for scrapbook layouts. I literally have hundreds of pages printed off of layouts and sketches. (now if I only had the time to use them all ;) ) This particular page got it's inspiration from Andrea Walford's card. I knew immediately it would make a great page for my scrapbook.
Here I've used our Autumn Vine 12x12 patterned paper along with Chocolate chip cardstock. I used Big Deal Alphabet for the title and for the lg orange shape I used Accent Elements Cricut cartridge.
These pictures are from a year ago, so you can imagine how far behind I am. I hope to get more scrap booking done this fall & winter so I can catch up!

Have a great day!

Inspired by Nature

Here's a super simple card, not a lot going on, but still cute I think. For the flowers I used Poppin Pastels <---you can click here to see the tutorial. Makes for a nice almost watercolored effect for these flowers. The card stock is Chipboard ran through the Big Shot with the Top Note Die. Other card stock is: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, and Pink Pirouette. Also used Kiwi satin ribbon. Thanks for stopping by!
