Winter Fun

I have a layout to share using a kit from Scrapbook Circle and a sketch from Sketches in Thyme

For the edge I tore a strip and then punched the brown cardstock and layered them together.
The title was created using Fancy Pants Light Green Alpha's and Heidi Swapp chipboard stickers. I love that cute little metal snowflake.

Here's some more close up's of some of the other embellishments. I love that adorable cork heart and that beautiful striped button.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a scrappy day! :)

Sketches in Thyme Project Life {Carry an Umbrella}

Hello! Today I've got a Project Life card I've created and used in another traditional layout. 
I used a fun sketch that's over on Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style. Here's my take on the Project Life card sketch...
I just love that cute little bird and umbrella! I covered them in some ink and then used some Stickles. 

Here it is on my layout.

Nothing like going sledding on a cold January day! We went sledding down Old Main Hill up at the USU campus. The funny part was that we didn't have sleds and the girls just went sliding down on their bums! lol 

 For this layout I followed this sketch from Scrapbook Circle and combined it with a challenge from Paper Issues.

I love a sketch that inspires me to try something new, I loved those diamonds! Definitely something a little different from my normal style.

My favorite is the foam glitter covered 'BRR'. I love a little bit sparkle. ;)

Scrap With Us {Winter Layout & Challenge}

Hello! How were your holidays? I hope everyone's were great! Mine were busy, busy! Although, I do enjoy the time spent with my cute little family. Now that the holidays are behind us I have a fun challenge to get you back into the swing of craftiness! ;)

Today's challenge is with Scrap With Us, if you haven't joined yet, take the time to do so! We have some other fun challenges going on there and we'd love to have you join us. :) My challenge for this month is to create a layout using a photo taken outdoors in the winter. Any photo taken during the winter season! :) Here is my layout.
I took this picture up on Utah State University Campus last year. I LOVED how the tree looked in the snow with the sun behind it. Just beautiful. We had gone sledding that day as a family. Such fun memories. :) I used Fancy Pants Timber Grove Collection. I did some faux stitching here and there and added some sequins for bit of bling.

Now join me on Scrap With Us! I would love to see your layouts!
Thanks for hanging out! :)

Scrap With Us {Merry Christmas Layout & Challenge}

Good morning! It's been sooooo cold around here! Perfect weather for scrapbooking and staying in with some hot chocolate and lots of fun scrapbooking supplies. So to give you a little extra incentive to get scrapbooking I have a fun challenge (actually a total of 4 challenges!) for you over at Scrap With Us along with an awesome prize! Read more about it on the blog- HERE.

The cold weather here was my inspiration for this challenge. We had some beautiful snow for Thanksgiving and it was followed by a nasty cold snap. The only good thing about this cold snap is the gorgeous frost on the trees. So much sparkle! :) So my challenge to you is to create a layout with some SPARKLE to it! You can use Stickles, sequins, glitter, glittery washi tape, etc. Anything that will add a little sparkle. :) 

I used Moxxie's new line, Season's Greetings. I just LOVE the colors and those adorable deer along the bottom. For my sparkles I used Stickles and sequins. 
Here's a little close up of some of the sparkle. :)

Now go check out all the fun challenges at Scrap With Us

If the Slipper Fits Layout

Good morning! How many of you do Project Life (PL)? I love to use the cards on a traditional scrapbook layout but I have yet to try actual pocket scrapbooking. Today Sketches in Thyme Project Style Life has a fun new sketch to share with you to create your very own PL card. Here is my take the sketch. 
I rounded the corners on 3x4 card. I added some silver glitter washi tape along the top. Also using the same glitter tape to cover a chipboard heart. I popped the heart up with some pop-up glue dots.
This sweet little girl loved those dress up shoes. Even though she couldn't walk she had to have them on her feet. Here's a close up of some of the details.

Make sure to stop by Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style to see the sketch and play along with us! We would love to see your take on it!

Home Grown Layout

Good morning! We have had some rainy days and had our first little bit of snow this last weekend! I'm not sure I'm ready for it, I still want to enjoy more of the beautiful fall weather where the leaves are gorgeous colors and the temperature outside is just perfect. 
How about you, are you ready for the snow?

Today I have fun 2 page layout to share with you from back in 2011 when we had a garden. The hubby built 3 little boxes so each of the girls could plant their own little garden in them. They did such  a good job of taking care weeding and watering them. So when my sister and brother in law came up for a visit they just had to show off their hard work and share some of the yummy goodies they had grown.

It was a fun layout to work on with all the embellishments. I did some faux stitching, used a punch and even got in some washi tape. :) Here's a few close up's of all those fun details.

Fall Card with a Challenge

Hello! I have some fun news to share with you today.
 I've joined Scrap With Us Design Team!
I'm so excited to share with you my first challenge with them.

Since I have such a washi tape addiction I thought it would be fun to do something with it. The challenge is to pull out your washi tape stash and create a card or a layout and use it as main part of the design. Get creative! Use as many as you want! Here is my card.

I used some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine on some Confetti White cardstock. Next I layered some washi tape. For my embellishments I fussy cut that adorable fox I stamped, cut out a few leaves and added a cute little square button with some twine.

We would LOVE to have you come join us in the fun and take some time to look around and join us in the other challenges we have going on! 
Thanks for stopping by! :)

Picking Pumpkins Layout

I love fall! I love everything about it, especially pumpkins! Moxxie's new line Fall Harvest, does NOT disappoint, it's just adorable! I have the perfect picture of my girls from last year at a pumpkin patch, picking out pumpkins. We had so much fun!
I love the paper and stickers in this line. The colors are just gorgeous. Moxxie even has a beautiful Alpha sticker set that matches it perfectly. I used them here for the title. Behind the title I did some layering with other papers from the line. Also added some faux stitching with a white pen.
I also spritzed some gold ink on the background and used a punch for the frilly little scalloped border on the strip of paper behind my picture.
I really love to play around with my journaling and one of my favorite things to do is to pop up my pictures with some foam dots so I can slide in a tag behind it with my journaling on it.

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Autumn Layout

Good morning! How is your day going? I have a fun fall layout to share with you using Doodlebug's Fall Friends line. Such an adorable line! But it was great for this picture of my 2nd daughter at the pumpkin patch last year. 
I love layering! I added a few layers behind my picture. Next, I added a few elements to the corner of my picture. I love adding elements directly to my pictures.
I also love to pop up elements on my layouts. Love the added texture.
Isn't this little mouse absolutely adorable!?

Enjoy Every Single Moment Layout

Good morning! I can't tell you how much I love fall! Almost as much as summer. ;) It has definitely been fall weather around here. Which has me reaching for fall type papers and I had a great picture of my youngest that just fit together so well. :)
I used Fancy Pants True Friend line, it was such a fun line to work with! Loved all the patterns on the paper that I just decided to run with it. I began fussy cutting and punching edges. I added some distressing to some. Then the fun really started! I just began to layer. 

I created some banners and tied them together with some linen thread. 
See that owl? Just the cutest, right!? :)
Then for my title I used a "brag cards" fussy cut out the flower, popped it up with some foam dots. I also added a little bit of sparkle by outlining the circle center of the flower with some Black Diamond Stickles.
I love how well it all came together! I especially love all the layers and added texture.
Thanks for stopping by! :)

Dia de los Muertos Layout

Hello again! How is everyone doing? Have you SEEN Moxxie's new line Day of the Dead? You haven't!? Uh.... what are you waiting for go! I'll even wait for you to go check it out, here's a link to get you there faster- Click HERE. I'll wait for you, just hurry!......................
Now, let me ask you again, have you SEEN Moxxie's new line!? It's gorgeous, right! The minute I saw this line I knew I had the PERFECT picture of my sister for a fun layout! 
Are you ready to see it?
What do you think!? Cool, huh! I started out with a base that I cut down by 1/4" on top and on the side, then adhered it to some black cardstock. Next, I sprayed and sprinkled some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine all over it and then let it dry. Then the fun of layering all those gorgeous papers came next. I did a bit of punching and some distressing on them. I also added a doily and some flowers.
For the title I used some of Moxxie's Alpha's. You can really see the ink splatters up close here. LOVE the glittery shine to them. 
As for this gorgeous sugar skull I did a bit of fussy cutting, propped it up with some 3D foam dots for dimension and lined it with a few Imaginisce jewels.
Love to hear what you think of the new line, let me know in the comments!
