Last weekend I got together with a couple of my scrapbooking sistas and did some pages!
I’m please with most of them and wanted to share a couple of my favourites with you!
For this layout, I was inspired by a challenge going on over at The Studio Challenges. The challenge is to use at least 2 fonts in your title and to journal. I journaled about a birthday tradition we have for our son.
I used papers from the Pink Fresh “Boys Fort” collection and some cute stickers from Photo Play Paper’s “Wild Love” collection.
The letters in the title are from some really old Bella Blvd. collections. So glad I didn’t get rid of them! LOL!!!
For my next layout, I used Kaisercraft’s “Let’s Go” collection.
The colours worked perfectly with the photo!
All of my supplies were purchased from Scrapbook Nerd. They’re an on-line shop located in a little town in Ontario. The service is wonderful and the delivery is super speedy. If you haven’t checked them out yet, head on over when you get a minute!
Well, off to get some dinner started!
Hope you find some time this week to get scrappy!
Today over at The Studio Challenges we’re playing “Tic Tac Toe”.
Pick your row and use those items on your layout.
Here’s the layout I created.
I found these pictures of Mathieu and Connor from Halloween a few years back I hadn’t scrapbooked yet, so I just had to use them!
For my layout, I used the Bella Blvd. “Sweet & Spooky” collection I purchased from Scrapbook Nerd. I also used old Bella Blvd. washi tape, Simple Stories enamel dots and Jillibean Soup Alpha Beans.
My title was created using a mix of black foam letters and letters cut from some black foam words. The letters “i”, “s” and “h” were cut from the word “this”, and the letter “e” from the word “the”.
So, head on over to The Studio Challenges to see what row I used and check out what the other members of the design team came up with. I’m sure you’ll be inspired. 😀
This week got away from me and I was only able to complete 1 challenge for NSD.
I played along with a challenge over at Scrapbook Nerd ~ Friends Group. It was a “patterned paper” challenge. You had to use as many different patterned papers as you could on one layout. I managed to fit 7 different papers on this page!
Even with using 7 patterned papers on my layout, I still managed to make the photos stand out by having the patterned papers only peek out slightly from behind the photos. Also, I used a paper with a very small pattern for my background paper.
I used papers and stickers from the “Let’s Go” collection by Kaisercraft and then added a few yellow enamel dots and a taxi button from an older Shimelle collection to finish it off.
Because I used multiple photos and so many patterned papers, I didn’t want to add too many more elements.
Well, it’s Mother’s Day today, so Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!
I hope you get spoiled!!
There’s nothing better than coming home and checking your mailbox to find a box of scrapbooking goodies waiting for you! 😀

Today we have a new challenge over on The Studio Challenges blog – SPRING!!
We’re asking you to create a project using items from your crafting supplies that spell the word “SPRING”.
I actually found this challenge, well, challenging! LOL!! There are a lot of items that start with the letters in “SPRING”, however, you have to use them all together in one project.
Here’s my take on the challenge:
I mainly used Vicki Boutin’s “Field Notes” collection I purchased from Scrapbook Nerd. The colours were SUPER springy and I was able to meet most of the challenge criteria with the collection alone! BONUS!
The word “hello” is from Jillibean Soup’s “Garden Harvest” collection and the enamel dots from Doodlebug Designs.
I really hope you play along! If you do, remember to link up your project on our blog. We LOVE to see your work!
So head on over to The Studio Challenges blog and find out what items I used and see what the rest of the DT team came up with.
