Family Celebration

Lisa back to share a layout with you. We had a nephew that got married last summer and took a family pic of everyone who was able to make it. I used that photo along with some beautiful CE embellishments and the April 2021 Hip Kit Club kit for this family oriented page:


I colored the Family Celebration chipboard piece with a Nuvo Glitter Marker and used that as my title:


 I added watercolor to my white textured cardstock and then used black ink and the Twinkle Stamp. I fussy cut a few hot air ballons and added a White Cloud:


I colored the "Love" Banner with Nuvo Glitter Marker and added it under my photo along with a chipboard bow from the kit:


 I tucked in a few pieces of a branch from the Mini Berry Set along with a few chipboard pieces and some word stickers from Pretty Little Studio:


I love how this page came together! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Take The Scenic Route

 Hi scrappy peeps!

Today, I am sharing my very first post for the Bramble Fox Challenge Team! I am excited to share my take on Michelle's March Tic, Tac, Toe challenge. I am on a mission this year to use my stash since I have so much of it! I used Simple Stories Vintage Bliss for this page of my daughter and I:

I fell in love with
Fox Cut #28 when I saw it in the store and wanted to use it on my first layout. I used one of the larger bursts behind my photo and added the smaller ones on the edges. I used a pencil to trace the lines and then hand stitched them. I added in a few of the teal Valentine Hearts:

I also knew I wanted to use the "Take The Scenic Route" perspextive from the
Go Anywhere set for my title on this page. It is absolutely gorgeous! Check it out:

Have you seen the
Paper Snips #001? These are fun ways to add details to your work, I love them! I added the pink banner to the lower right of my photo:

Here is Michelle's Tic Tac Toe Challenge:

I used:

Friends Forever

Hey there card making friends!

I am back to share another card for 88 and Clear. I used one of my favorite collections from 88 and Clear- Friends Forever Digi-NEXT. This collection is gorgeous and like I said, one of my favs!

Here's my card:

I used Tangy Peach Sugar Stock for my base and then added a layer of Sweet Blue Sugar Stock. I topped it off with one of the wood grain papers in the Friends Foerever Digi-NEXT collection. I colored the vase of flower image with my Caliart markers and then fussy cut it out along with the sentiment. I used another paper along with the Ring Layers Die to the bottom right of the card. I popped the vase up on foam and added a bow made from Black Taffy Twine. I finished the card off with a few splatters of Dazzling Pat.

I love the colors on this card!

Kiss The Cook

Hey everyone!
I am back with you today to share a fun baking layout that I created for Creative Embellishments.
Every year before the holidays, Sierra and I spend some time making cookies / candy for Christmas:


 I added some October Afternoon papers from my stash to my white background and the added some machine stitching. I used red embossing powder and heat embossed the Kiss The Cook title piece. I backed my photo with brown cardstock and popped it up on my layout:


 I colored the Spoons with a silver marker and then added some brown embossing powder to the handles and heat set:


I used the same silver marker on the bowl and whisk of the mixer and then used the same red embossing powder on the body of the Mixer. I used the same brown embossing powder on the Spatula. I did the same treatment to the tools at the bottom of my page:


I fussy cut a few pot holders and popped them up on my page. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Slide Into Vacation

 Hey there friends!

Today I am sharing my take on case file #383  at CSI. This photo of Austin going down a slide while we were camping many years ago has been sitting on my desk forever. I finally scrapped it! I used mostly stash for this page:

I tore patterned papers from Canvas Corp. (blue polka dot- 2011), BoBunny (red- 2010 and Lily B Design (yellow-2012) and added some machine stitching. I added a Simple Stories chipboard frame:

I heat embossed the slide from Creative Embellishments and placed that partially under the right side of my photo. I backed the photo with a scrap of patterned paper from BoBunny. I added a journaling sticker from Lily B Designs, the "happy" sticker from Simple Stories and a few fussy cut circles. I added the paranthesis sticker from BoBunny along with a thumbs up sticker from Simple Stories here. I used Simple Stories and October Afternoon alphas for my title:

I added stickers from Lily B Designs, BoBunny and Simple Stories  to this cluster. I also added the fussy cut star circle from BoBunny and the star diecut from Simple Stories. Finally I added water to 88 and Clear Rich Blueberry Sugar Cube and added some spatters:

I love that I used mostly stash on this page and I am happy with how it turned out!

I tucked in a pennant made from Sweet Cane Sugar Stock and added a piece of trim from my stash. I used a stamp from Love Jack for my sentiment and stamped using Sour Guava Sugar Cube.

This Place

Hey Scrappy Friends!

Have you seen the March case files at CSI yet? I am sharing my take on case file #382 using lots of bits and pieces from my stash:

I was inspired by the colors and kites in the case file. I took patterned paper scraps from Authentique, Pink Paislee and Fancy Pants and created my own kites. I added machine stitching to them, left thread tails and added an Amy Tan bow to a few. I used a title from Crate Paper Oasis:

I hand cut my sun, added some machine stitching and added the sun diecut from Dear Lizzie Star Gazer. I also added the Super SaturYay diecut and word phrase stickers from Dear Lizzie. I fussy cut the pinwheels from an Echo Park paper and added a piece of bling to each one:

I fussy cut the bikes from a Dear Lizzie paper, I think. I added some bling and some fussy cut clouds that I hand stitched:

This was such a fun layout to create and I love how it came out!

When Life...

Hey there scrappy friends!
I am back to share another winter layout with you using lots of winter embellishments from Creative Embellishments along with Echo Park's Winter Magic collection. 

Last winter my grown kids and I were shoveling the driveway and decided when we were done, to make a snowman. It's been a few years since we've made one- we had so much fun playing in the snow! It was dark and my pics didn't turn out very well, but I wanted to documant this fun time, so I used them:


 I used the Snowflake Stencil along with a few Distress Oxide inks to add some color to my white cardstock background. I added a few different torn pieces of patterned paper to mimic snow and machine stitched them. I wanted to use the word "Snowman" from the Snow Word Set as my title. I added white Gesso and acrylic paint to it. Once it was dry, I added some Liquitex Glass Beads to it. One of the patterned papers had the perfect title, so I fussy cut the rest of my title from it. I added a Distressed Snowflake Flair:


 I fussy cut some trees and added them tabove my snow. I used white Gesso and acrylic paints to color the Snowman. Then added some of the glass beads to the bottom:


 I added white Gesso and the glass beads to the Icicle piece as well. I fussy cut the multicolored blue snowflake from one of the papers and popped it up with foam. I added a few Frosted Blue Acrylic Snowflake, these are so pretty!


Here is a close up of the fussy cut trees:

Make A Wish

 Hey there friends!

I am sharing a birthday card I created for 88 and Clear using the March Mood Board:

I used Sweet Cane Sugar Stock for my card base and then added layers of Sour Guava, Nectar Stone and Tangy Peach Sugar Stocks. I fussy cut the flowers and sign from papers in the Spring Melody collection:

I used Nectar Stone Sugar Cube and the "make a wish" stamp from Make Magic to create my sentiment. Finally I added water to Sour Guava Sugar Cube to make my spatters.
I think this card is gorgeous and I love it so much!
