March Apron Strings All Year Cheer Card Kit.

Hello and good morning...

I posted some sneaks from the Apron String's March All Year Cheer card kit a week or so ago, and am sharing with you my reveal using the kit. It's packed with tons of great spring and Easter-y colors, but perfect for other greetings and sentiments also. The kit has Pebbles, Simple Stories, and Doodlebug papers along with a ton of embellies.

Happy Moments.

Hello and good afternoon..

Happy Survivor Day!! I'm totally looking forward to tonight's episode and have really been enjoying this season so far. Are you watching???

I decided to play along with the Scrapbook Circle March challenge with my March kit. I haven't had much free scrapping time lately, the kids afternoon sports schedules have been keeping me pretty busy, but that's ok because I love watching them play.

I scrapped this photo of my lil one, the photo is from back in May of last year.

I love the colors in the kit, so soft and fun, yet not overly too soft  in tones. I added some gold wording and hearts for accents:

And of course just a bit of misting and enamels:

I'm still head over heels in love with the ombre washi tape from Pink Fresh:

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and hope ya have a great night!!!

Hello and good morning...

Happy Tuesday!!!! I'm up over on the My Scraps & More blog today.

I'm sharing with you another layout that I made using the Simple Stories Say Cheese II collection. In case I didn't mention it before, but I have a TON of Disney photos, I don't think I'll ever have a shortage to scrap and it's been almost 3 years since the last time we went.

This photo was taken all the way back in 2010 of my older kiddos when we went to Disneyland on a rainy day.

I added lots of random stitching through out the various sized circles on the layout:

I added a blue piece of paper under the "Magic" diecut tag, to make the wording stand out a bit more, along with some white mist splats on the black background:

And a bit more stitching:

So if you have got PILES of Disney photos, this line is perfect!!!! There are soo many embellishments in this collection, you can pick from several different packs and they are really full of great pieces...

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a magical day!!!!

Crazy About You.

Hello and good morning...

Happy Monday!!! hope you all had a great weekend and had a bit of fun too.

Up on the Let's Get Sketchy blog is the latest sketch for week #4 to play along with.
The photo is of my lil one back in August. Her older siblings took swim lessons and we would watch on the grass. She was eating a muffin and making quite a mess, but having a great time.

I used some older MME for this page. I added enamels and die cuts through out the page:

And a pop of scallops and washi tape also:

Here is the sketch, it's a really fun one to work with:

Can't wait to see what you do with it!!!

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Hello and good morning...

I'm up over on the Moxxie blog today.
It's crazy to think that Spring is on it's way and creeping up on us so quickly. I decided to grab the Springtime collection and scrap an older Easter photo of our family (photo of when we were just a family of four).

Usually I totally distress up my pages, but with the bright colors and soft feel, I decided to go with a "clean" look to the page and papers.

I punched out a few butterflies to use as accent embellies along with just two word sticker strips:

and added some stitching around the border of the page:

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and I'm super excited for those spring colors to start popping up.

Love Love Love.

Hello and good morning...

Happy St Patty's Day!! Hope you remembered to wear your green today.

I'm up over on the My Scraps & More blog today.
I used some of the Pink Fresh Studio Up in the Clouds collection on a layout of my little one from Halloween. Even though they are Halloween photos, I thought this line was perfect for it. I just loved how fun and playful the line is, and it made it super easy to work with.

I added some of the Studio Puffs embellies throughout the layout:

And fussy cut out the LOVE word and added it for my title work:

I also punched circles out from the Circle sheet of paper and used the ombre red & blue washi tape:

So make sure to head on over to the store and checkout the Pink Fresh collection.... and check out the latest sketch on the My Scraps & More sketch blog. There will be a new sketch up on Friday to play along with....

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!

Lucky Day.

Hello and good morning...

Happy Tuesday!!! I'm up over on the My Scraps & More blog today.

Last week I shared with you a layout using the Simple Stories Say Cheese II paper, usually the typical colors that you think of when you think Disney... red, yellow, black. But today I am using the same line, but decided to just pull the blues from the line in it for a Disney photo of my kids. It was taken right outside of CA Adventures. My kids always stand with the big R, since that's the first letter of our last name.

Yup, that's the same Say Cheese line I used before... but only the whites and blues of the collection. I love it because you could use this collection for swim, snow or boy pages.
I added some wood stars through the page:

And I used quite a few of the Say Cheese stickers, those sticker packs come with a TON of stickers in them:

And topped off the page with an American Crafts Thickers wording and some ink splats:

That is how you scrap a non-themey Disney layout...  

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Lucky 2 Have U.

Hello and good morning..

I'm up over on the Moxxie blog today.
With St Patty's day up and around the corner, I thought it would be a fun idea to leave a little goodie out for my husband to let him know just how lucky I am to have him in my life.

I decided to grab some Butterfingers, his favorite, and wrap it up with some cute papers and add a fun note to it.

I layered the wrapping of papers, I used the brown "Got Mud"  paper (FNR-1514) and then added a green layer and topped it off with the "Queen of the Crop " paper (QCR-1516) and punched a border on the edges.

I also layered the arrow stickers, pop dotting one of them up to give some dimension:

I then added a fun little note to my honey, and cut out one of the pennants and added a label on it:

And there you go. A quick easy project to bring a smile to someone you love's face....

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!
