Last week I got my hands on the new Jillibean Soup collection “Cold Avocado Soup” and created this layout with it:
Along with the embellishments that came with the collection, I also added a couple of Jillibean Soup corrugated boys, some enamel dots from MME, and American Crafts alphabets.
I then used my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Square 25 and epoxies to make some of my own coordinating embellishments. I popped up a few elements to give the page some dimension.
I absolutely love this collection. The colours are so bold and vibrant and the collection can be used for just about any type of layout!
Well, back to my scrapbooking room to finish my layout for Paper Secrets.
Hope you have a great day!
Happy December 1st everyone!
Well, with the new month comes new challenges and I love new challenges!!
The first one I’m going to share with you is going on over at Paper Secrets. They have an awesome new sketch and the twist is, you have to incorporate metal onto the layout!
Here’s the sketch:
You only have until December 14th to share your layout so I hope you’ll join in the fun! You have a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the Paper Secrets Shop!
I FINALLY got my layout done for the 123 Get Scrappy challenge with barely a minute to spare!! Whew!
I chose to use stencils, circles and leaves on my layout.
I had grand plans for some old alphabet stencils I had, but all of my attempts at using the stencils to create a great background failed for numerous reasons. So in the end, I made the letter “E” from the alphabet stencil, used a ton a leaves and the circles are found on my background paper and in some embellishments.
Here’s my layout:
Most of the patterned paper comes from Doodlebug Designs “Happy Harvest” collection and a few 6×6 sheets from Lawn Fawn’s “Into the Woods” collection. The letters used in the title are from Bella Blvd. and the stickers from Simple Stories, Echo Park and Jillibean Soup.
I used Bella Blvd. washi tape and chipboard and the enamel dots are from Doodlebug designs.
It’s a beautiful and sunny day today, so I’m off to enjoy it. But I’ll be doing more scrapbooking later today! I hope you have a chance this weekend to get creative too!

Here’s my layout I completed for the Paper Secrets challenge. We had to use the sketch and incorporate clouds. I have clouds on my background paper!
The photo quality is not the best unfortunately, because it’s been very grey here lately.
I used almost ALL Bella Blvd. products for this layout – patterned paper, stickers, washi tape and chipboard. The patterned paper is from their “Playdate” and “Snapshots” collections. The chipboard letters are from American Crafts and the card stock from Bazzill. I also used Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio SST-50 Pennant 25 tool and coordinating bubble caps.
I tried to work on a layout for 123 Get Scrappy, but unfortunately, nothing was coming to me, so instead I decided not to follow any sketch or challenge and do my own thing. I completed this layout:
Again, I used a lot of Bella Blvd. – patterned paper, stickers and washi tape – with some MME enamel dots, Doodlebug letters and stickers, and SRM stickers.
Well, I only have a few days left to create a layout for 123 Get Scrappy so I better get busy!
Well, I completed 2 challenges but have 2 more I’d like to participate in before the end of November.
I’m going to try and get a layout done for 123 Get Scrappy and Paper Secrets.
123 Get Scrappy uses a board with 9 squares on it with ideas on each square. You have to pick 3 squares in a row and incorporate the ideas in those squares on your layout.
Here’s the board for November:
And the other challenge is over at Paper Secrets. It’s a sketch challenge:
So, off I go to try and get some scrapbooking done!

Here’s my layout for the Scrap Our Stash sketch challenge.

- Doodlebug sprinkles
- washi tape – Little B
