We Are Family Scrapbook Layout


Last month's Story Kit theme from Ali Edwards Design Inc. was "family" and I have so very few photos from my childhood of all of us together that I knew that if I scrapped a page or two using any, that they wouldn't be the best quality and that I would just have to be okay with that.  Sure enough...this one is of my mom, dad and I and it is super grainy (even more so after I enlarged the photo) and only my dad is looking into the camera but you know what? It's kind of reflective of our family itself. Far from perfect, but here we are, despite it all.

Holiday Cheer Ornament


Here's another spin using the ornament style template from the Holiday Cheer ornament and tag kit.  For this one I stamped out one of the Whimsical themed stamps for the inside of my globe and then two smaller ivy and holly images that I attached to the outside of the completed globe.

Holiday Cheer Crafting


I'm so excited to be holding my first afternoon crafting event in November! I thought I would start out small since this will be my first event and I want to see how many I have sign up, how things go, etc. We will be creating two of the ornament/tags from Close to My Heart and one simple card that I designed using the Cedar & Pine papers.

Shaker Ornaments/Tags


I just got the Holiday Cheer Ornament and Tag Shaker kit in the mail today and couldn't wait to try out making one as soon as I opened everything up! This is one of the tag options (pictured above) and I used stamps both from the Traditional and Whimsical Holiday stamp sets that are included in the kit. This was my first time making a shaker and it was so fun!! There is definitely a bit of a learning curve for getting the rim of foam adhesive around the circle evenly, but if you're patient, it works out. And, let me just tell you...I don't often have the occasion to play with sequins and I LOVE it!! Little things like this make me so happy! I chose the silver/iridescent/white mix for this one but the kit also comes with the option to use green and red. I'll use those for my next one!

Looking FA-BOO-LOUS Scrapbook Layout


I don't usually do cute when scrapping and was totally planning on using the Spooktacular Paper Packet from Close to My Heart mainly for cards and treat boxes, etc. but when seeing the phrase sticker "Looking Fa-boo-lous I thought it would be fun to create a page around it.

Thank You Card


I'm on a roll with creating cards it seems as of late! This is another quite simple one that I made special by using some 3-d tape (popping up the die-cut sentiment "thank you" with it). I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the sentiment and then added a pop of contrasting colors with the diagonally striped paper.

It's the Simple Things Card


What is it about Sunday that makes me think that I'm going to be able to catch up enough to have a little bit of time to myself or just to relax a bit? Lots of cleaning and organizing going on today and then I ran some errands (forgetting to pick up the dog food!) and now it's almost time to get stuff ready for dinner! Oh, well. Maybe I'll try again next weekend.
