Thankful & Blessed

 Hey there card peeps!

Today I am sharing a card I created using the May Free Digi Stamp with $25 purchase at 88 and Clear.

I used Sour Lime Sugar Stock for the base of this card and then added a layer of Sour Pineapple and Java Chip which I used an embossing folder on:

I colored the Spring View Digi Stamp with Caliart markers and fussy cut it. I popped it up with foam and added it to my card.
I stamped the sentiment using Black Taffy Sugar Cube and Thankful Blessed Stamp.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

 Hey there friends!

I have a layout that I created for CSI using case file #354 along with lots of stash. I used all Lawn Fawn papers except the green behind my photo, that is from Crate Paper. Here's my page:

I added an old wood veneer from my stash, to a few of the Lawn Fawn papers a added a wood arrow, fussy cut "fun" enamel camera from Amy Tangerine and a few flower stickers from my stash:

I added a cut apart card, on top of some patterned paper. I added a fussy cut cloud popped up with foam. I added my journaling, a few labels and arrow clip from Elle's Studio and a flower from Simple Stories:

Here I added the yellow label from Chic tags, flower cluster from Amy Tan and a cork & from Elle's Studio:

I layered papers under my photo, added some lace from my stash, tucked in a soda from Amy Tan. On top, I added an acetate "hello" from Chic Tag, a popsicle diecut from Amy tan and an acrylic heart from Elle's Studio:

Here is the case file:

I was inspired by the colors and grid design.

Vacation Layout For Creative Embellishments

Hey there Scrappy Friends,
I am  back to share a vacation layout with you using some fun chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments along with some BoBunny, KI Memories and Basic Grey papers from my stash:


The background paper is from BoBunny and I added the torn number paper from KI Memories. I used Tim Holtz Distressed Inks to add some shading to the Clock Towers and then placed them to the left of my photo and one partially under it. I matted my photo with a few patterned papers- the striped is Basic Grey and the brown is BoBunny. I added my journaling to the right:


 I added a few flowers from Little Birdie Crafts and tucked in a piece of a Distressed Clock. I also added a wood veneer Travel Geo Tag. Both pieces are colored with Distressed Inks and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist:


I used the Vacation chipboard piece for my title and colored that with Distressed Ink and mists as well:


Finally, I added the Travel Corner in the upper right hand side of my page:


This was such a fun and grungy page to create and I love how it came out! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Dad & Me

Hey there scrappy friends!

I am sharing a layout created for 88 and Clear using their fabulous products! We were at dinner one night and I snapped this picture of Sierra and Greg:

I used Echo Park Yours Truly stash. I added a few papers from the collection to my background paper and then scrapped some Media Mixer on it. When that was dry, I made watercolor out of the Tangy Berry Sugar Cube by rubbing some on plastic packaging and then added a bit of water. Finally, I used the packaging technique to apply it to my background. I used the 3 smallest hearts in the These Hearts Die and cut 2 of each from Rich Cherry, Sweet Pink and Tangy Berry Sugar Stocks. Then I layered them up and added some machine stitching. This creates lots of texture and depth:

I added a tag I had made years ago from the same collection under my photo and layered in a few patterned papers. I tangled some Black Taffy Twine and tucked it in under my photo:

I added a few stickers, alphas and the fussy cut typewriter. I also tucked in some Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers, a few fussy cut flowers and a few red hearts from October Afternoon:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Senior Photos


I am sharing a layout created for Sketches In Thyme using sketch #466 by Bev Code. I used lots of stash on this page of Austin most of it is Little Yellow Bicycle. I used a few of his senior pics:

I added lots of layers behind the photos to use up the bits and pieces I had. I tucked in the acetate and added a rub-on from Crate Paper:

I fussy cut the bird and added a balloon from Forever In Time, a burlap arrow from Simple Stories. The rub-ons are Crate Paper. I used a few different Thickers for my title:

Here I added a flower, leaf, chipboard leaf, stick pin, ticker, more rub-ons, a burlap heart from Simple Stories and the wood button is LYB with some Divine Twine:

I added a touch of green with this chipboard tree to make this photo pop. I added a cork butterfly which I wrapped thread around to add some color. I loved the rub-on from Daisy D and have been hoarding it. This layout was perfect for it!

Check out the sketch and play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

You Are Cute

Gardening Mini Album

Hello everyone!
Today I am sharing a fun gardening mini album that I created for Creative Embellishments using lots of chipboard pieces and papers from my stash.
Greg and I have a pretty big veggie garden every year. We also have raspberries and blueberries and flower gardens. I took a bunch of photos last summer and decided to create a mini album with a garden theme. I used the Mason jar Mini Album- it was perfect since we can as well. I tucked in a Bumblebee, a Strawberry and a Sun:


 On the first page, I added some pieces from the Rainy Days wood veneer colored with mist and the watering can from the Garden Supplies:


 I tucked in a few smaller Jars in between:


 This is the back side of the jar. I added Dazzling Pat to the jar part and added gold acrylic paint to the lid. Then added some Powdered Sugar Twine. I added the word "cultivate" to the right page. I colored it with a metallic Sharpie I also added a few Vegetables colored with Sharpies:


 I added a wood veneer sun from Sunny Days and the tulip flair to the left page. I added Raspberries to the right page:


On the left I added more Vegetables. I added in another Jar and left this side blank for journaling:


On the other side of the Jar, I added some twine, fussy cut flowers and a Strawberry. I added some stickers and a fussy cut canning jar to the right page:


 I added the words "harvest" and "bountiful" from the Autumn Word Set. I added in glove and wheel barrow from the Garden Supplies and a Bumblebee:


 I added the Coneflower and words "Beauty" and "Shine" from the Sparkle Word Set. I colored them with Nuvo Glitter Markers. I added in another Jar with a wood veneer Sun and a Shovel:


Here's a close up:


On the last page, I added the word "fall" from the Autumn Word Set. I also added a planter and shovel from the Garden Supplies:


 I covered the back cover with the same red plaid paper that I have on the front:


 I love how this mini album came out and I also love that I used a bunch of photos! 
 Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

 Hey there!

Today I am sharing a layout created for 88 and Clear. This layout is of Greg, Sierra and myself. We were celebrating Sierra's 22nd birthday:

I wanted to do an ombre effect on this layout. I used the Heart Panels Stamp and stamped 2 in each of these colors: (going from the top of the layout to bottom) Sweet Pink, Sour Guava, Sour Watermelon, Tangy Berry and Rich Cherry Sugar Cubes. Then I fussy cut them and added them in a strip down the left side of my layout:

I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio Wild At Heart collection. I added a chipboard frame, some fussy cut butterflies and flowers and the cut apart phrase:

I used the same Sugar Cubes to make watercolors for my background. I added a chipboard title and some machine stitching to my butterflies:

This was such a fun layout to create! I love using the Sugar Cubes to make watercolor!
