Merry & Bright


Hello everyone! Today I'm playing along with this weeks Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This weeks challenge is all about Winter Stamping. I decide to go big and created a 12 x 12 Christmas themed layout for this challenge. 


Here's a shot of my layered photo and embellishments. When I came across this cute little three dimensional reindeer sticker in my stash I just had to use it. Isn't he cute? 


For my title I spelled out "Merry & Bright" with some bright red glittered Thickers. I always feel like I need a bright bold title for each of my layouts and this one is no exception. I also cut out one of the colorful zig-zag patterns from the embellishment sheet and added it right across my layout, cutting it apart at my title. 


To the upper right of my layout I added half a tag, a sentiment sticker, a little button, and a little snowflake embellishment. To the lower right hand corner of my layout I added a little triangle piece of patterned paper along with a matching button and some stamping. You can check out all the challenge details HERE.

Crispy Leaves


Hello everyone! I have a 12x12 layout to share today using some gorgeous patterned paper from Close To My Hearts Pathfinding Collection. I just love this fun leaf patterned paper and thought it worked perfectly with my photos. Once I chose my leafy patterned paper for my background I pulled out some matching cardstock, embellishments, and thread. 


I added some stitching in a circular pattern to the left of my little photo collage. Then I added a little sentiment sticker and some colorful little leaves right over my stitching. 


I wanted to balance out my little photo collage so I added my title to the left hand side. I also added another sentiment sticker and another colorful leaf to the right side of my photos. I really love how this layout turned out and will defiantly add some more circular stitching to my layouts in the future. Thanks for visiting!

My Happy


Hello everyone! I'm back today with another fun 12x12 layout. I ordered a bunch of pictures from Snapfish a few days ago and just got them the other day. When I came across this little cutie I just had to use it. Lately I've been going through some of my stash and pulling different bits and pieces out to be used. I started by using a 12x12 sheet of patterned paper from 7 Dots Studio's Illumination Collection as my background.


I added a cute little frame to my picture and layered it over a large tag from 7 Dots Studio's Illumination Collection. I also added a few simple embellishments for some color and to help draw your eye across the page because I thought the photo and the title were a big focus for the page and I didn't want to over do it.


Hope you enjoy my little layout and Thanks for visiting.

This is the Good Life


Hello everyone! I'm finally getting back into the swing of things around here on the blog after my two month break. I took the time to make a few different layouts the other day. It's been way to long, I've missed the fun of creating a big 12x12 layout. I will be stopping in and sharing a few different projects over the next few days but for today I have this colorful little layout to share. I used some patterned paper from  Elle's Studio Penelope Collection and a stamp set from Elle's Studio called Everyday Moments.


 I started by adding a fun circled background to my layout by using an old sticker sheet as a stencil. I just laid the old sticker sheet over my cardstock and traced a few random circles with a black marker. After I had my background done I distressed, layered, and stitched two different sheets of patterned paper into the middle of my cardstock and added my photo. After I had my patterned paper and photo added I stamped all my little sentiments and notes. I started by stamping them in white and then I went over them again and stamped them in a light plum.


Above is a little close up of the distressed patterned paper and little "snapshot details' sentiment I stamped and added to the top half of my 12x12 layout. Thanks for visiting!

I had so much fun on her design team creating with all the fun CTMH goodies she sent me each and every month. Thanks so much for having me be apart of your fabulous design team Jessica! Now for a bit of good news! Starting in January I will be joining Canvas Corps creative crew! I will be apart of the Handmade Cards & Paper Creative Crew.

Oh-So Grateful


Hello everyone! I'm back with my last Fall themed layout using this colorful collection from Close To My Heart called Pathfinding. You can check out my first three layouts featuring this collection HERE, HERE, & HERE. I started by using one of the 12 x 12 sheets of patterned paper as my background. Then I added some patterned paper, my four photo mats, a few chipboard pieces, a stamped sentiment, a journaling tag, and my title.


I spelled out "Oh-So Grateful" with some barn red alphabet stickers from DCWV for my title and then added some stitching across my letters. Adding stitching helps keep the letters in place insuring they won't fall off as time goes by. The little Lagoon journaling tag can be pulled out from behind the patterned paper so I can add some journaling later on.

 I hope you enjoyed my colorful Fall themed layout today. I had so much fun creating all kinds of different layouts with this fabulous collection. Next month I will be creating all of my layouts with Close To My Hearts Yuletide Carol Paper Pack & Yuletide Carol Complements. Thanks for visiting!

Fall 2014 Layout


Hello everyone! Today I have another Fall themed layout to share that I created with Close To My Hearts Pathfinding Paper Pack & Close To My Hearts Pathfinding Complements Chipboard Sheet. I also used a fun little pattern from Close To My Hearts Reflections How- To Program called Bottom Border- Title. There are three different patterns to choose from, I'm using the second alternate pattern with the 4" x 3" photo and the three 2 1/2" x  2 1/2" photos.


I focused on using a few different sheets of patterned paper, some coordinating cardstock, and minimal chipboard pieces. I followed along with the pattern and added my green corrugated "Fall 2014" title and a few chipboard pieces to the bottom strip of patterned paper.


Of course I had to add some blue stitching and a bit of stamping for a little bit of subtle color, I added a terracotta colored leaf from the Pathfinding Complements to the stitching as well. I hope you like and Thanks for visiting!

Fall Into Autumn


Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a colorful Fall themed layout that I created with Close To My Hearts gorgeous Pathfinding Collection. I will be creating and sharing a few different layouts featuring this collection all month long here on my blog and over at Jessica's. Today I'm sharing the first layout I created with this super cute collection.


Before I even started my layout I knew I wanted to highlight some of the gorgeous colors that are in the patterned paper so I started by painting and misting my 12 x 12 sheet of Champagne cardstock with some Autumn Terracotta and Lagoon ink mixed with water. I just love how the Autumn Terracotta and Lagoon color combo turned out. Since this is a Fall themed layout I used a picture of a tree with the sun setting behind it, a few chipboard pieces from the Pathfinding Complements Chipboard Sheet ans some Twine to my photo.


I hope you enjoyed my colorful Fall themed layout today. I will be back next Wednesday with another 12 x 12 layout featuring this super cute collection. Thanks for visiting!

Happy WCMD 2014


Hello everyone & Happy WCMD! I say this every year but I just love World Card Making Day! It's a great excuse to get crafty with some friends and have fun with some stamps and paper. I have a super easy clean and simple card to share today using products from Simon Says Stamp & Basic Gray. 


I started by using a 6 x 6 sheet of pattered paper from Basic Grays Fresh Cuts Collection as my card base. Then I stamped my "Thinking Of You" sentiment and flower from Simon Says Stamp Thinking Of you Clear Stamp Set onto a small piece of white cardstock. To finish I matted my stamped cardstock with some blue watercolored paper from Basic Gray Fresh Cuts Collection. You can check out a close up below.
