More new favourites…


Hi there!

A lot of companies have been sharing wonderful sneak peeks of their new collections coming out in the next couple of months, so I thought I would share a few more that have caught my eye.

In addition to the first collection I shared from Bella Blvd. “Hello Autumn”, these are are some of my other favourites:





So, 2 more collections from Bella Blvd., one collection from Fancy Pants Designs and one from Basic Grey.

LCOM sketch #81 DT reveal…


Hey everyone!

It’s reveal day over at Let’s Capture Our Memories and we’re sharing layouts based on this sketch below:

July 13, 2014

Here’s my layout:


I followed the sketch pretty closely changing out the large letter for some journaling, and added an extra picture.


And I love that this sketch allowed my to use my new Epiphany Crafts chevron tool!! I put strips of Queen & Co. wood grain washi tape on some scraps of paper and punched out my chevron embellishments.


And the little cluster of words in the top right hand corner is actually covering up some torn paper! Oops!! LOL! I had a sticker there and didn’t like how it looked and when I went to remove it, it took some paper with it!


So head on over to the blog and take a look at what the rest of the design team came up with! I’m sure you’ll find some great inspiration.  Then make sure you play along for a chance to win a prize!!

Happy scrapping!

Hi everyone!

There’s a new challenge up on the Child’s Play Challenges blog.

Our inspiration for this challenge was the game “Cootie”.


I was inspired by the caterpillar type bugs and created this tone on tone layout:


I used American Crafts cardstock and patterned paper from Chic Tags, Bazzill Basics and October Afternoon.  I also used my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 25 tool to make that cute fox embellishment.


The wood veneer triangles are from Creative Embellishments, enamel dots from October Afternoon and stickers from Bella Blvd., Studio Calico, Jillbean Soup, Bazzill Basics and Tim Holtz.

And here’s the finished layout:


So head on over to the blog and see what the other design team members came up with and then link up your layout for a chance to win a prize!

Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!



Ruby Rock-It and Epiphany Crafts…


Hello everyone!

Epiphany Crafts has teamed up with Ruby Rock-It this week and today I’m up on the blog sharing a set of cards I created.

The Epiphany Crafts design team got a chance to work with Ruby Rock-It’s “Oriental Chic” collection.  It’s absolutely gorgeous! And I had a chance to work with one of the newest Epiphany Crafts tools – the Chevron shape!!  It’s one of my most favourite now!!

So head on over to the blog when you get a moment to read my post and while you’re there, stop by the store and order yourself the new Chevron Shape Studio.  I know you’ll just LOVE it!

Happy scrapping!

LCOM sketch #79


Hello everyone!

There’s a new sketch challenge on the blog over at Let’s Capture Our Memories!

Here’s the sketch:

June 29, 2014

And this is my interpretation:


I had a TON of fun creating this tone on tone layout! I pretty much used all Bella Blvd. products with the exception of the vellum! This layout is a combination of their Lucky Starz, Max, Famiy and Sophisticates collections.

I cut out some cameras and stars and popped them up around the page to add some dimension.


And before adding my title to my page, I put a piece of vellum over the patterned paper to tone it down a bit so my title would show up more.


Well, thanks for stopping by! Make sure you head on over to the LCOM blog today and check out what the rest of the design team came up with!

I’m sure you’ll be inspired!

Happy scrapping.
