I had a pretty productive weekend this past weekend at my all day crop. I completed 3 layouts. However, 1 of them, I cannot post until the July 15th design team reveal for “About a Boy”.
The other 2 I would love to share with you.
For the first one, I used all Jillibean goodness! Papers, stickers, corrugated shapes and words, and their wildly popular placemat frames!
I’m loving the corrugated shapes and words and the little white frames.
And for some added dimension I popped up a photo and roughed up the edges.
For the next layout, I used products from Elle’s Studio. The paper and embellishments are from the new “Cameron” line. I like the eclecticness of the collection.
I’m waiting on my second order from 2 Peas in a Bucket. I want to participate in a challenge over at Little Yellow Bicycle and I want to use the papers from the “Poppy” collection I have coming in. I’m going to use a sketch Juliana Michaels from The Paper Bakery Kit Club created.
Here’s the sketch:
So, I think I’ll be busy with sketches and challenges again for the next week! Yay me! A big thank you to all the companies that keep me on my toes and thinking creatively!!
I was all about challenges these past 2 weeks, having participated in a few, including this one over at The Paper Bakery Kit Club.
Here’s the sketch we were given to follow:
And here is the layout that I created:
I used some Bazzill Kraft cardstock, papers from My Minds Eye “Boy Crazy” collection (I LUV that collection), some Jillibean Soup letters, a Simple Stories month sticker and some masking tape.
This was a really fun sketch to do! Thank you Juliana for the inspiration!
The Paper Bakery has challenges twice a month and you can win some cool prizes. Why don’t you head over and check them out?
The June 15th challenge is up over at About a Boy Scrapbooking Challenge Blog! The challenge is “Going in Circles”!
Here’s the layout that I completed as part of the design team to perhaps give you a little inspiration. I don’t use a lot of circles on my layouts generally, so it was certainly a challenge for me! I used mostly My Minds Eye “Boy Crazy” collection and a little of Little Yellow Bicycle’s “Fern & Forest – Boy” collection.
I did my journalling around the tops of the “balloons”.
So, why don’t you play along? We would love to see what you come up with!

I’m scrapbooking all day with my girlfriends so I’ll be in my happy place.
Hope you get your creative on this weekend too!
I want to share with you a layout I completed for the My Minds Eye June Colour Challenge.
Intially I wasn’t going to participate because pink was one of the colours we had to use and having a boy, I never use pink on my layouts of him. Not that I had to do a layout of my son, but honestly, I don’t have any pictures of me that I’m rushing to get scrapbooked! LOL!
Then I thought, what’s a challenge if it doesn’t get you to do something you don’t normally do? So I rised to the challenge and I scrapbooked a layout of my son and his best friend and I added just a touch of pink, but pink none the less!!
Here is the inspiration:
And here is my layout:
We had to use mostly My Minds Eye products, so I used paper and stickers from the new “Kate & Co.” collection, paper from “On the Bright Side” and from the “Remarkable” line and word stickers from the “Notable” line. 3 collections that worked very well together!
If you want to participate in the My Minds Eye colour challenge, you only have until June 18th so don’t wait too long!
I’m also going to share another layout I did using 3 different Echo Park collections – All About a Boy, Happy Days and A Perfect Summer. This is how it turned out:
Well, I’m off now to dig into my new supplies that arrived yesterday!!!
I’ll let you know what I come up with!
When I arrived home from work this afternoon, I was greeted by a big box on my doorstep! It’s the first of my 2 orders that I placed with 2 Peas in a Bucket!
Look what I got!
There is so much stuff, I don’t even know what to use first! And there’s still one more box coming!!
Well, you know I’ll be scrapbooking for the next few days.
Little Yellow Bicycle is having a 50th collection celebration!!!
In honour of creating their 50th paper collection, “Vintage Summer”, LYB is having a challenge. Create a project celebrating some aspect of 50. Maybe the project is about your 50 favorite things about summer. Or use factors of 50 in your project or even just have the numbers 5 and 0 in your project. The interpretation is totally up to you!
You can use any of the Little Yellow Bicycle paper lines and you have until the end of June to submit your project. And I have saved the best for last; LYB is drawing 3 winners to receive 50 Little Yellow Bicycle items!
I know you’ll want to play along, so you can get all the details here!!
Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine has their June sketch up on their website.
I know I’m doing this one for sure!!!
Why don’t you give it a go too? You may get published…
