Another Christmas Card

Hey all,
I am on spring break this week, so that means a little more scrappy time.
I played along with the second card sketch at Sketch-N-Scrap and came up with this Christmas card:

I used Fancy Pants Cottage Christmas for this card.
Here's the sketch:

I Love You...

Hey there friends!
I am sharing a layout I created using the March challenge at Scrap The Boys and a cut file from Paper Issues. I used an old Little Yellow Bicycle line for this layout of Austin and I:

I added a few layers of patterned paper under my photo. I found those fussy cut flowers on the floor in my scraproom, LOL! I added a stick pin, some star stickers and the chipboard "together" banner:

I added 3 chipboard stars from Creative Embellishments and backed them with patterned paper using the Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect: 

I added a few punched stars and cut the words "Dream Big" from one of the papers. I backed the cut file with patterned paper and then traced around it with a brown Sharpie:

Here's the inspiration photo:

Tis The Season

Hey there friends!
I am sharing a Christmas card I created using a sketch at Sketch-N-Scrap. I used the PinkFresh December Days 6x6 paper pad for this fun card:

The sentiment was a square on one of the papers. I used a scalloped circle punch to make it round like in the sketch. I layered my banners and added some machine stitching.

Here is the sketch:

Chill'in the Lake

Hey friends!
I played along with Rochelle's sketch challenge and combined it with Stacey's challenge for March. I used the May 2018 HKC kit for this fun layout:

My friend took this fun Snapchat pic of us while camping last fall. I added a Fancy Pants flair:

I hand cut the circles and added them to the banner. I added a diecut and the pretty rose gold leaves:

I used 3 different fonts for my title including those yummy gold ones!
I added a few phrase stickers and the paint stroke stickers. I fussy cut the glasses from one of the papers:

I finished the layout off with a few black spatters.
I love how this layout came out! It's so fun!
Here's Rochelle's sketch:

and Stacey's inspiration photo:

I was inspired by the palm leaves and party theme. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


Hey there friends!
I have a layout up at Sketches In Thyme today. I used stash for this layout:

I fussy cut the flowers and leaves from a paper pad from Michaels, I think that's where it came from:

I added some gold phrase word stickers and a card along with some more fussy cut flowers:

I added watercolor to my background along with black spatters:

Go check out the sketch and play along with us!

Wedding Card

Hey there friends!
Today I am sharing a wedding card with you. I used Tutti Designs Mr. & Mrs. die along with Paper House Wedding Days for this beautiful wedding card:

I used a patterned paper for my base and then added a layer of cardstock and another patterned paper.  I stitched them together. I used silver cardstock to cut the sentiment and then used ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever to adhere it to my card. I added some ribbon and lace trim along with the fussy cut hearts:

Here are the items I used for this card:

Thanks for stopping and sharing your day with me!

My Sweet Girl

Hey there!
I am here to share a layout of Sierra and me that I have up on the Creative Embellishment blog today. Back in December, she posted this photo and a very nice comment about me on Instagram. Of coarse, I took a screenshot and just had to scrap about it! I used the March & April 2018 Hip Kit Club kits for this pretty page:


I did a lot of fussy cutting on this layout. I added the leafy branch that I cut from the Berry Clusters in 2 different spots on my layout. My first thought was to color them green, but when I added them in just like they were, I loved it because they "popped" off the page:


For my title, I used the words "Sweet Girl" from the Girl Word Set, leaving them natural as well. I added a few alpha stickers to finish off my title. I also added a few stickers and a fussy cut butterfly:


Here is the cluster at the top of my photo. This includes another sprig from the Berry Clusters:


Under my photo and to the upper right, I placed the Heart Scalloped Frame. I love how it pops my photo off the page! I added a fussy cut butterfly to the frame as well:


I love how this layout came out using the chipboard pieces in their natural state! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Birthday card

Hello and happy Monday!
I have a card to share with you that I created over the weekend using the March card sketch from Stick It Down. I used Echo Park Everyday Eclectic for this fun birthday card:

I fussy cut the balloons and popped them up with foam to give some dimension. I added some machine stitching to give the card some texture.

Here's the sketch:

Happy Sunday friends! Hope you had a nice weekend!
I enjoyed some free scrappy time this weekend and played along with a sketch at Sketch-N-Scrap.
Sierra took these photos on her mini trip to Lisbon in January. She is studying abroad this semester in Germany and has been doing lots of traveling in her free time. So you will be seeing lots of travel pages from me, LOL!
I used old BoBunny papers for this layout:

I struggle with doing these no people layouts, so it's not my best work :)

Here's the sketch:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Vintage Layout

Hey friends!
I am sharing a vintage layout I created for Off The Rails using the moodboard this month.
I used a photo of my Mom, Grandma, Grandpa, an aunt and a great uncle from many years ago along with some stash:

These My Mind's Eye papers were perfect for a vintage layout. I added some flowers from my stash as well:

I fussy cut these words from the patterned papers and used them as embellishments:

I added some wood tokens and chipboard buttons from My Mind's Eye along with some Recollection butterflies. I added some MME twine to 2 of the buttons. I used some foam alphas for my title:

Here's the moodboard:

I was inspired by the colors and the vintage feel.
