A Cute Little Card

Hi Everyone...Over the weekend I was at a crop held by Right at Home Scrapbooking.  My main goal for the crop was to get my Christmas cards cut out.  Happy to report I was able to do that!  When I was looking at my "scraps" I had about 100 bracket shaped labels.  I couldn't just throw them out, so I decided to create a little something using my scraps!  This is what I came up with:

I am not a big stamper, but I have to say that the Lawn Fawn stamps are just too cute!  I also love the fact that they also have coordinating dies.  The papers are from Lawn Fawn's Peace Love Joy collection.  I figured I'd make a few of these to have on hand...that way I'd have a card if needed!  That's it for today...I wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!  I'll be back Saturday with my #30gratefuldays mini album!  Thanks for stopping by.

More Lawn Fawn

Hi Everyone...I'm back today with the second layout from my Lawn Fawn Fall Layout Class I'm teaching this weekend at the Right at Home Scrapbooking November Crop.  Take a peek....

One of my all time favorite pics...all of the nieces and nephews and their significant others...a rare photo op!  I used the Stitched Journaling Card Dies to create my background.   Now no one faint...but I actually stamped. (It's a running joke that I'm a completely inept stamper)  but the little critters from the Into the Woods stamp set were just too cute to pass up. 
The speech bubble dies and stamps are from the A Birdie Told Me set.

Off to crop today...can't wait to hang with the girls and gab!! We might even get some projects done!  Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Issues at Creative Scrappers!

Hi Everyone...two of my favorite places are teaming up this week...the Paper Issues girls are sponsoring the Creative Scrappers Sketch!  Kristine Davidson sent us this fab sketch to play with...'s what I came up with...

These selfies were taken during an AP US History class....they're obviously studying hard.... In place of the triangles in the sketch, I created the symbol for radiation using my Silhouette...I figured it went perfectly with the Photo Bomb theme! Most of the goodies on my layout are from the Chic Tags Our Happy Place Collection from the Paper Issues Store

The heart speech bubble clip is from Maya Road, and the Epic wood piece is from Freckled Fawn, colored with my new favorite Teal Color Shine from Heidi Swapp.


The click flair is from PandaEight and the glasses flair is from Doodlebug.  Link up your takes on this sketch on the Creative Scrapper's Blog and you could win a $30 gift card to the Paper Issues Store

Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to head over to the CS blog to see the fabulous creations from the PI girls!

Lawn Fawn Fall Layout

Happy Sunday Everyone!  I had a fun time at Right at Home Scrapbooking yesterday for their Christmas Open house and bus tour.  Lots of laughs with lots of fun ladies!  Today I wanted to share one of the layouts I'll be teaching at the Right at Home Scrapbooking November crop next weekend.  We'll be playing with some Lawn Fawn Into the Woods Papers and dies. 

I'm in love with this collection.  The colors are so cheery and the patterns are a lot of fun.  For this layout I also used some of the sequins and the Stitched Leaves Dies. 


I'll be back later in the week with the other layout from this class.  I'll also be posting some of my #30gratefuldays mini for Paper Issues and on Wednesday, I have a fun layout from the Paper Issues/Creative Scrappers Team up we have going on this week.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Everyone, I have a fun card up over at The Twinery today.  I actually made feathers from some of our Solid Twines!  It took me a long time to jump on the feather bandwagon...but now I think I'm here to stay!  Take a peek:

These look hard, but they're really pretty easy to make...just takes some time.  I started by wrapping a piece of fabric covered floral wire with the twine, gluing both ends to secure. (I used some Mandarin, Marigold and Maraschino)  I then tied 3" pieces of twine, starting about 2" from the bottom...all the way to the top.  Once that's done, you spray the feather with fabric stiffener, and play with it until it's shaped like a feather.  Just let it dry on a piece of wax paper and done!  To see a complete can go here.

I used some neutral papers from Studio Calico for the background...I really wanted the feathers to stand out.  A few sequins and a wooden heart and done!  This card is serving double duty as well... we started a new "Grateful for You" Issue over at Paper Issues up your projects to win a $20 PI Gift Card!!!  Good for anything in the store, even some fab Twinery Twine! That's it for today...thanks for stopping by!

Play with me!

 I have a new layout today for Paper Issues.  I got to play with some fun new Studio Calico Printshop and some gorgeous Heidi Swapp Color Shine Spray!  My layout was inspired by a sketch by PI Alum Ashley Horton.  Take a peek:

This picture makes me laugh every time I look at it.  It's my kitty Daisy who was determined to get between me and my laptop.  She just wouldn't give up!  I used a couple of my favorite papers from Printshop... and the wood veneer stars.  I colored them with some Teal Color Shine.  I love the shimmer! 

I also used some Color Shine on my background along with some Studio Calico sequins. The paw print washi is from Queen & Co.  That's all for today, I'll be back soon with some fall and (gasp....) Christmas projects!  Thanks for stopping by!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

Hi Everyone!  Happy November!  I can't believe it's almost Thanksgiving already!  I've been good so far, working on my #30gratefuldays mini for Paper least I'm up to date! Today I have a "just for fun" layout I created using a mix of Bella Blvd's Daily Chevies and Snapshots Collections.  It's a silly group selfie  I took with my daughter and friends, while tailgating at the Taylor Swift concert last July.

I love the die cut pieces from the Snapshots fun and colorful.  I added in a few Bella Blvd. crocheted hearts  and some sequins from my stash as well.

This layout is one of my favorites, because I'm actually in the picture! (It's a rarity....)  I'll be back later this week with a project for Paper Issues, and hopefully some class announcements for Right at Home...some fun projects in the works!  Thanks for stopping by!
