Hello there!

Scrapbook Nerd is having a sketch challenge over in their Facebook Friends Group.

Here’s the sketch:

And here’s my take on the sketch (also week 13 of “52 Favourites”):

I used the Vicki Boutin “Colour Kaleidoscope” collection I purchased from Scrapbook Nerd.

I also used a few enamel dots from My Mind’s Eye, some stickers from Simple Stories, a wooden button from an older Shimelle collection and the title “this” is from the Jillibean Soup “Garden Harvest” collection.

Week 10 & the secret life of pets…

Hello there.

Just popping by quickly to share my week 10 layout for the 52 Favourites challenge over at Paper Issues {Friends & Fans}.  I combined it with their “Secret Life of Pets” challenge.

I’m supposed to be going scrapbooking all day tomorrow with my girls, however, I woke up this morning with a cold! 😦 I’m hoping to get a good nights sleep and I’ll feel better tomorrow and not worse.

Fingers crossed!

Happy scrapping!

Week 9…

Hello there.

I’m just popping in to share my week 9 layout for the “52 Favourites” challenge over at Paper Issues {Friends & Fans}.

I used papers from the Carta Bella “Our House” collection I purchased from the Paper Issues store.

The title “Sweet” is from my Jillibean Soup foam stickers I purchased a while ago.  They are a part of the Garden Harvest collection.

I was looking for little things to add as embellishments and pulled out my old heart punch from Epiphany Crafts.  Since I used some heart paper, I thought I would punch out a few hearts to add to the page.  In the end, I didn’t really care for the hearts I punched out, but the instead used the strip of paper I punched the hearts from! 😀

A few stickers, some enamel dots and roughed up paper edges and the layout was done!

My husband has to work tonight, so I plan on doing some more scrapbooking! I’m planning to work on my next design team assignment.

Happy scrapping!

Hello there.

This week is week 8 of the “52 Favourites” challenge over at Paper Issues {Friends & Fans}.

My favourite thing for this week was having my new kitchen drawer pulls put on! 😀

Week 6…

Hello everyone!

Today I’m sharing with you layout #6 of my “52 Favourites”.

For this layout, I played along with the “Take 5” challenge over on the Paper Issues Friends & Fans facebook page.  They give you a list of items to choose from for your layout and you have to include 5.  From the items on the list, I picked red, pink, the word “love”, a heart and polka dots.

I really enjoy this challenge so I’m glad I got the chance to play along.  Want to check it out? Just click here and ask to join the group (if you’re not already a member!).

I used papers from Kaisercraft “Hide & Seek” collection I purchased from Scrapbook Nerd.  I also used Jillibean Soup foam words, and Simple Stories chipboard pieces from their “Life in Color” collection.

DSCN8507

I popped up some of my embellishments to create a bit more dimension.  Also, I didn’t have all the letters I needed in the font I wanted to use, so my “n”  in the word “in” is an upside down small “u”, my “m” in the word “mug” is an upside down small “w”, and my “u” in mug is a capital “U” cut down.

My first Design Team reveal is this Sunday for The Studio Challenges, so stay tuned to see what I created!

Happy scrapping.

Hungry like a bear…

Good morning everyone!

Here’s the layout I created yesterday.

It’s for week 4 of my “52 Favourites”, but also I played along with another challenge over at Paper Issues.  It’s the “Tic Tac Toe” challenge.  You have to use items in squares that form a diagonal, horizontal or vertical line (just like in tic tac toe).  I went with a vertical line on the left side of the chart which was “Bears, Patterned Paper and Journaling”.DSCN8479What I like a about challenges are they really help you think outside your scrapbooking box.

For this photo of the bread, I would never have thought of using this title, or a bear on my page for that matter, but by participating in the challenge, I ended up with a much cuter page than I had in mind.dscn8480dscn8481For the background, I used a piece of Bazzill Basics Kraft paper and the patterned paper is from Photo Play Paper “Campfire” collection along with the bear sticker.  I also cut out the little bear peeking out from behind the journaling from a piece of their paper and the “TODAY” paper I journaled on.  The enamel dots are from Simple Stories “Hello Fall” collection.

I’m off now to go to Michaels.  I have three 40% off coupons and I’m in desperate need of some new albums since I’ve been scrapbooking so much lately. 😀

Catch up soon!

A little shopping…

Hello everyone!

I was thinking last week, if I’m participating in a challenge that requires me to scrapbook 1 layout a week, I’d better buy some new stuff!! 😉

So, last Thursday night while my husband and son went to the movies, I ordered some goodies from Paper Issues. This is what happens when you leave me alone!

But then a couple of days ago, along comes a coupon in my inbox for 15% off any purchase at Scrapbook Nerd! Well, I’m not one to let a coupon go to waste! LOL! So I placed an order with them too!

Now I’m sitting here impatiently waiting on 2 orders to come in.  I’ve been scrapbooking quite a bit lately trying to use up my old stash because I need to make room for all the  new things coming in.

Here are a couple of layouts I’ve completed using up my older stash:DSCN8374I used up the last of my Simple Stories “Cabin Fever” collection on this layout.  The colours of these papers worked perfectly for this photo.DSCN8365And for this layout, I used up the last of my Crate Paper “Boys Rule” collection which I think came out about 5 years ago!

I was lucky to be able to come home from work early today so I’m going to go and start on another page for the “52 Favourites” challenge.  Remember, you can join in the challenge at any time! It’s really fun…and challenging!

Happy scrapping!
