Paper Issues meets Ruby Rock-It…


Good morning everyone! I hope your weekend was super crafty!! I finished up some Christmas cards I made for a guest blogging spot!! More about that later! :-)

Today is Monday, which of many things, also means new linky parties over at Paper Issues!!  This Monday the theme is “Birds of a feather, flock together” and it’s sponsored by Ruby Rock-It!

Well, I don’t have anything about birds or feathers, BUT I do have these cards I made a while back for a DT assignment for Epiphany Crafts when we had the pleasure of teaming up with Ruby Rock-It.

Since using Ruby Rock-It products is one of the criteria for this party, I’m submitting them for my chance to win!!!


So head on over to the blog and check out all the different criteria for submissions and get your projects linked up!!!

Hope to see you over there!!

Happy scrapping!


Sketch # 99…


Good morning everyone!

Today over at Let’s Capture Our Memories is a brand new sketch!

The picture placement is not something I’m used to, so it was a bit challenging, but in a good way! It got me thinking outside my box!!

Here’s the sketch:

#99-Nov. 16, 2014

And here is the layout I created!


I combined a couple of paper collections from Bella Blvd. (Max and Halloween Magic) and used Bella Blvd. arrow stickers and letters.  The chipboard circles are from Creative Embellishments.


I chose to use a bunch of little pictures instead of 3 larger ones but kept the placement of them the same.


I drew my stitching with my white gel pen.

So grab a cup of coffee (or tea!!) and head on over to Let’s Capture Our Memories blog to check out what the rest of the design team came up with! And make sure if you play along you link up your project! You can’t win if you don’t link up!! ;-)

Happy scrapping!


Additional products used:

  • cork arrows – Studio Calico
  • puffy stickers – Gossamer Blue
  • enamel dots – Teresa Collins

Paper Issues Sketch party…


Hello everyone!

I came by to share the layout I completed for the Paper Issues Sketchy Saturday Link Party.

It was a sketch right up my alley, so I really wanted to play along!!

Here’s the sketch that was designed by Jen Chapin for Paper Issues.November Sketch PI

When I saw the sketch I knew exactly what picture I wanted to scrapbook.  My mom had passed away recently and I had this lovely picture of her from 1975.  I wanted to create a layout in her honour.  Here’s what I came up with:


I found the saying on a little die cut piece from the Heidi Swapp “September Skies” collection and thought it would be perfect!!


I created 3 little clusters of elements, mixing items from Heidi Swapp (transparencies & die cuts), Jillibean Soup (corrugated Butterfly), My Mind’s Eye (flair), Studio Calico (cork hearts) and Teresa Collins (enamel dots).


The letters are from October Afternoon and the great retro looking papers are from Basic Grey – both their “Hey Girl” and “Hey You” collections I purchased from the Let’s Capture Our Memories on-line store.

It’s an absolutely fabulous sketch to work with and you have until tomorrow night to play along!  There’s a great prize up for grabs too you don’t want to miss out on!!

Hope to see a layout from you over there soon!

Happy scrapping!



It’s heating up over at Child’s Play Challenges…


Hi there!

Today over at Child’s Play Challenges we’re bringing you some “hot” layouts!

Our inspiration this week is “Hot Wheels”.

When I think of Hot Wheels, I think of moving fast!! So, I created a layout that has A LOT of movement! I followed a sketch from Creative Scrappers.


The patterned paper is from Heidi Swapp’s “September Skies” collection.  This collection is so versatile allowing you to create both very feminine projects and very masculine projects.


The washi tape and banner is also Heidi Swapp, the chipboard gears are from Creative Embellishments and the die cut trees are from Fancy Pants Designs “Oh Deer” collection.


The little grey stars are Gossamer Blue.


So head on over to check out the rest of the “hot” layouts and make sure you play along! We would love to see how you are inspired!

Happy scrapping!
