Today I scrapped more Christmas. Yay!

I used a Laura Whitaker sketch from Stuck?! Sketches. I love her sketches!

I used papers from my Noel Mignon Kit and my stash. I love all the layers and patterns. I used some Jim Holtz Distress Paint to create these paint circles. I love them!

These gold Thickers make me happy! I love how shiny they are. I used a gold, shimmery twine for this bow. Adorable! And, I always love adding flair when I can.

Here is a closer look at the little embellishment cluster. So cute!

I hope you enjoyed looking at my layout. Please leave me some blog love and let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Christmas Traditions

I'm loving scrapping my old Christmas pictures. It gets me in the holiday spirit.

I used a Laura Whitaker sketch from Scrap Much?. I haven't done a two-page layout in awhile, but I alays have so many picture from Christmas that I had plenty for this page.

I love doodling on my pages. I used a Brick color pen from recollections. I use some flair, buttons, and chipboard to make this little embellishment cluster.

My Noel Mignon Kit came with som cute rub-ons. I used one on this picture of my husband and son hugging our tree. I addd more buttons, chipboard and enamel dots.

I adore alphas! These white glitter ones make me giddy! I used my red gelato to add a hint of red to the white card stock.

I created this little cluster of embellishments to cover a journaling error. There's always a way to fix problems. 

I love this white, glittery twine and was happy to be able to use it in this page set.

I hope you enjoyed my layout. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Deck the Halls

I got my new Noel Mignon Kit this week, and it's all Christmas! My favorite!! I pulled out my past Christmas pictures and started scrapping.

For this layout I used a Laura Whitaker sketch from ScrapMuch?. I adore her sketches!

I admit, I combined this month's Noel Mignon Kit with everything I had remaining from last year's Christmas kit, and tons of other Christmas stuff I had in my stash. I love Christmas! This title is a puffy title from Pink Paislee. It was perfect! I used lots of layers and patterns to create this page.

This Christmas emphemera is tons of fun. I love these little ornaments. I pop dotted one to make it stand out more.

The circle under all the layers is thick glitter paper. I love the way it shimmers. I used papers that pulled out the pinks in my granddaughter's outfit, but still complimented the Christmas colors. 

I hope you enjoy looking at my layout. Please leave me some blog love and let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Princess Meila

My granddaughter is adorable! Her Grandma Jozette made this cute dress for Meila, and she looked so cute in it. When I saw the pictures I knew I had to use them in a layout.

I created this page using a sketch from Stuck?! Sketches. Another Laura Whitaker favorite!

I started this page by using Faber-Castelle Gelatos in three different colors of pink to create the pink sunburst. I used a make-up brush to pull the colors across the page. I love the effect it created. 

I used papers from Kaiser Craft from their Secret Garden collection for this layout. I love how soft and "girly" the line is. 

Here you can see the Gelatos streaked across the page. The butterflies and flowers were emphemera from the Secret Garden collection. I used Stickles in Star Dust on parts of the butterflies and flowers to create more of the fairy effect. 

I inked the edges of the papers in Quick Quotes chalk in Feather Gray. I also used two different types of Thickers - one in a soft blue and other in metallic silver.

I love all the layers in this page. Such cute detail.

I used pop-dots to make the flowers and butterflies stand out from the page. I bent the wings of the butterflies to give them a bit more dimension.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my layout. Please leave me some blog love and let me know your thoughts. Thank you!


My beautiful daughter and her husband take many selfies. I love when I get a copy of them. They are just adorable! This one made me happy and I knew I wanted to scrap it.

I created this layout for a challenge from ScrapMuch?. Laura Whitaker is one of my favorite sketch designers. She always gives great guidelines, but still allows freedom to add more details.

I also created this layout for the November 15th Picture This! Challenge. The challenge was to use 1 picture + card stock + gold. This layout is perfect for the challenge!

I used papers from the Amy Tangerine Plus One line. I started out with the layout being black and yellow, but then I put the orange with it and the whole thing changed. I love the way it turned out! For this page I used two different Quick Quotes chalk inks - Rusty Nail and Coal Miner. I love their ink!

I used a black Zig Memory Writer to doodle stitch marks on the black and white paper. It added just a bit to the layout.

I had these cute gold Heidi Swapp words and stars in my stash. I love how they worked with the layout. I also sprayed the camera paper with Gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine.

This tag is from the Amy Tangerine line as well. Too cute! The kraft tag is a sticker from the same line. I used it to add the date of the picture. These stars are so adorable!

Thank you for taking a look at my layout. Please leave me some blog love and let me know your thoughts.

**Thank you Scrap Much? for featuring my layout on December 3rd. I'm honored!!

Love You

Scrapping pictures of my beautiful granddaughter makes me happy. I adore this little girl!

I found this adorable picture of Meila in a boa that her Grandma Jozette took of her. I knew I had to use these feathers from Bella Bvld for this page. I created the page using a challenge sketch from a Facebook group I participate in, Scrap N Share

I like the simple lines that allowed me to change things up a bit.

See these feathers? Aren't they adorable? I've had them in my stash for a long time just waiting for a good way to use them.

I bought these doiles awhile ago and I'm so glad I finally got to use some. They are so little and adorable. I also used some of my Washi tape. I have a ton of it, but rarely remember to use it. This layout seemed like a perfect one to use it on. Along the edges of my layout I used 1" strips of paper and mitered the edges. I like the little bubbles along the paper. The enamel dots I used play off this paper really well.

This little kraft tag was too cute not to use. I used a teal pen to write a small bit of journaling. I love the little accents of gold and added more gold in the enamel dots and title.

I found these Thickers in my stash. They made a perfectly simple title. The heart and the arrow lines came from the same set. 

Thank you for looking at my layout. Please let me know your thoughts.
