Scrapbook Nerd sketch challenge…

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.

If you aren’t already a member of the Scrapbook Nerd Facebook Friends Group, head on over and join.  If you participate in the sketch challenge and share it in the group, you have a chance to win a $15 gift certificateto the Scrapbook Nerd shop! Who doesn’t love FREE stuff! I sure do!! 😉

Happy scrapping!


Colour palette challenge…

Hello everyone!

Today over at The Studio Challenges we are inspiring you with a very Springy colour palette!

The colour palette is one of my favourites – blues and yellows!

Here’s my take on the challenge.


The majority of the papers and embellishments I used on this layout are from the Jillibean Soup “Farmhouse Stew” collection.  They were PERFECT!! I also incorporated a few elements from Vicki Boutin’s “Colour Kaleidoscope” collection that I received recently from Scrapbook Nerd.



I created a “coffee cup stain” by inking the bottom of an old coffee cup.


A few blue and yellow enamel dots and journaling around the edges of the page finished off the layout.

So, head over to The Studio Challenges blog and check out the inspiring colour palette and the awesome layouts from the rest of the design team.

Then don’t forget to play along and link up your layout for a chance to be a guest designer with us!

We can’t wait to see what you create!

Happy scrapping!


family MEMORIES…

Hello there.

Just stopping by quickly to share a layout I created over the weekend.

I’ve started working on our trip to Montreal last March.

The colours in the Jillibean Soup‘s “Farmhouse Stew” papers worked perfectly with these photos!




I’m happy I got started on these vacation pictures! I have a lot of them! 😀

I hope you also found some time to be creative this past weekend!

Happy scrapping!


Magnet makeover…

Hello everyone!

I mentioned a few days ago I had some fridge magnets that were in need of a makeover and I wanted to use my felt flowers from Jillibean Soup to help me transform them.

I used Jillibean Soup “Mix the Media” felt flowers and die cuts and puffy stickers from their “Farmhouse Stew” collection.

I apologize for the dark photos but I created late into the night! LOL!

I simply used an assortment of die cut leaves and flowers and glued them around the outside edges of the magnet overlapping them to create layers.


I then took a peach butterfly puffy sticker and stuck it to the edge of one of the felt petals.


The felt flowers have an adhesive back making it really easy to attach them to anything. I placed mine in the center of the embellished magnet.

Here’s my first finished magnet.


Next I overhauled a clip magnet we have.


I added some flowers and leaves to the top and bottom of the clip then attached my felt flower to the center.  I purposely didn’t attach the felt flower to the top of the clip magnet because that’s where you have to press to open it so I wanted to keep it flat there.




Both magnets only took me about a half an hour to make.  It was a fun, quick craft.

Now off to work on my second design team assignment for The Studio Challenge.  Make sure if you join in our challenges, that you add them to the blog! We love seeing what you do!

Happy scrapping!



I couldn’t help myself…

Hey there!

So, over the weekend I just couldn’t help myself and made another little purchase at Scrapbook Nerd.

They have super fast shipping, so I knew I would get my order by the time my next day off rolled around – today! 😀

I purchased Jillibean Soup’s “Farmhouse Stew”.  The colours are not the usual colours I go for, but I had a few photos that I thought would work perfectly with the collection.


I also purchased some Jillibean Soup felt flowers because I have a few ugly magnets I feel can use some beautification.

I’ll post them when I’m finished.

Off to do a little crafting!

Have a great afternoon everyone!


Order #1…

Hi there.

I just wanted to take a minute to share my first little order that came in from Scrapbook Nerd.  VERY quick deliver!! Love it.


The “Winterberry” collection from My Minds Eye, some foam words from Jillibean Soup and the adorable “Hide and Seek” collection from Kaisercraft.  I also bought some adhesive but didn’t think you needed to see a picture of that!! LOL!! Nothing really to swoon over.

I participated in a the “Tic Tac Toe” challenge today over at Paper Issues and created a really fun page.  I just have to take some pictures and then I’ll share it with you.

If you’re looking for some great challenges, you really need to check out their page. You have a chance to win 1 of 2 gift cards to their store too! Who doesn’t love free stuff?

Anyway, off to tidy up the kitchen table so we can have dinner.

Happy scrapping!
