My Superstar…


Hello there!

I popped in today to share with you a layout I created.

As I mentioned before, I bought 3 of the new Bella Blvd. collections just recently and I have to say I absolutely love them.  It’s the bright colours and bold patterns! They work perfectly for me and the type of scrapbooking I love to do!

I used a combination of the “Max” collection and the “Lucky Starz” collection and then tossed in a little bit “Family”.  It’s awesome how they all go so well together!  I also used a little bit of Studio Calico paper, patterned vellum and enamel dots and some little white numbers from Jillibean Soup.

Here it is:

A while back I used a piece of paper from Studio Calico that had outlines of flowers on it and I used a pencil crayon to colour in a few flowers.  Well, I decided to do that with this paper too and coloured some of the chevrons red.


I also pulled out my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 14 and created a little musical note embellishment.



I have so many scrappy plans for April, I’m just giddy!  This Saturday is the monthly all day crop with my scrappy sistas and then the weekend after Easter the same group of friends is going away for a scrapbooking retreat in Michigan! I just can’t wait.

Oh, and I also have some other news I’ll be sharing soon, so stay tuned!

Happy scrapping!



scrapbooking away…


Hello there!

I think lately I’ve been on a scrapbooking roll!  I’m actually scrapbooking about a page every couple of days! That’s a lot for me!

Today’s layout I’m sharing was created using patterned paper from Studio Calico and Elle’s Studio, letters from my last Studio Calico scrapbooking kit, flair from 2P’s, washi tape from Recollections (Michaels store brand) and my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 14 and coordinating epoxies.


I didn’t want the “p” in “capture” and the “d” in “everyday” to be covered up by the background paper the photos were sitting on, so I cut around the edges of the letters with my Xacto knife and slid my background paper underneath them.  This way you could read the whole word.


I chose the bright green with the black and white because of the shirt my son was wearing,


And I pulled out a word stamp that I’ve had forever and used it to fill up the space beside the title.


Well, I received my assignments for April from Epiphany Crafts, so off to work on some of those!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy scrapping!


DT reveal at Child’s Play Challenges…


Hey everyone!

Today is my first DT reveal over at Child’s Play ChallengesIt’s an awesome challenge!

Our inspiration was “sand art” and we had to combine that with the sketch below.



Here’s my take! I was inspired by the colours in the sand art and the soft waves they created in the bottles.




I used the “Office Hours” scrapbooking kit from Studio Calico along with letters from Fancy Pants Designs and word stickers from My Mind’s Eye.

So why don’t you head on over a check out what the rest of the amazing design team came up with! And don’t forget to play along!

Happy scrapping!


Studio Calico “Office Hours” kit…


Hi there!

Well, I broke down and ordered a Studio Calico scrapbooking kit.  I always see so many great layouts using their kits, I decided I needed to try them out.

The kit I received is their “Office Hours” kit and it’s great! A wonderful mix of colours and patterns with lots of little embellishments to choose from.

Here’s the first layout I created with the kit adding some chipboard from Creative Embellishments and a few stickers from Bella Blvd. and Doodlebug.


I print my own photos at home and decided for something different I would just leave them on the sheets as is, instead of cutting them into individual pictures.



Well, that’s all for today.  Come back on Tuesday though, when I will be revealing my first DT project for Child’s Play Challenges!

Happy scrapping!
