Christmas 2018

It's been a very difficult and bittersweet holiday this year. I've been a bit reluctant to share pictures from our Christmas this year since it was scattered with worry and stress throughout (my dad scared us with another hospital stint right before Christmas)...the pictures don’t show that I know, but in looking at them and experiencing this Christmas in particular I’m reminded that life is so very often a mix of joy and sorrow both. Wonderment and fear. That it’s okay to feel and acknowledge it all. I’m thankful we were able to carve out this time to experience the comfort that is family. That my heart was able to get there for it.

Smile Beautiful | Scrapbook Layout


While working on this layout I realized just how long it's been since I've used paper flowers on a scrapbook's been awhile! I used to use them quite often and have quite a stash so it was fun digging through it and pulling some blooms out for this page.

Girl You Are Amazing | Scrapbook Layout


This layout came together very quickly! Sometimes when I am wanting to scrap some photos and the inspiration just isn't there I'll look online or in magazines for inspiration. For this layout I found inspiration in my Fall 2018 issue of my Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine.

Card Cut Mini | Mini-Book


Whenever I see a mini-book created by Paige Taylor Evans I know that I want to try and make one myself! When she shared her cut file for this mini card cut book I knew it was one that I would take a stab at. 

Decorating the Tree | Scrapbook Layout


I had fun putting this scrapbook page together the other day while Zoey was at work. I had fun mixing up the fonts within my title, sometimes I forget to play around when it comes to working my alphas into the design!

Laugh & Cheer Holiday Card


This card was put together (again) just by using scraps that were already out on my desk left over from scrapbook layouts that I’ve recently put together. At the last minute I grabbed the gold doily to place underneath the mason jar chipboard and it gives the card just a little something extra!

Holiday Cardmaking


It has begun! I had some fun putting this card together by simply using scraps from the last couple of layouts that I have worked on. Most of these supplies are from Crate Paper's Snow & Cocoa collection.
