Awesome Adventure

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new LO to share.   I've been wanting to do a LO with a painted background for a while.  Well I finally did it using Vicki Boutin paints.  I knew I wanted to used bright colors with black accents or my LO.   I really like how it turned out and it was so fun to make!



I just had to use this "be wild" flair on this LO.

Hey sunshine

Hey everyone, I'm back today with a new LO to share using the XOXO collection and a free cut file.   I really do love using cut files on my projects.  They are just such a great starting point.  I decided to cut this file with pattern paper and it created an instant background for my LO!



I think this is one of the prettiest Pretty Little Studio collections.  Just look at those flowers!



I love to cluster all these little bits and pieces!

Blessed

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new LO to share for A Flair For Buttons.   When I am asked what is my scrapbook style I never really know what to answer.  Layers, clusters...lots of detail?  All I know is that I like to put a lot of stuff on my LO's.  Maybe my style is embellishment junkie!  lol  So I decided to challenge myself to make a simple LO.  Well it was hard!  Like really hard.  All I did was fussy cut some flowers from the 1canoe2 Twilight collection, added a few stickers and one flair button.  I kept going back wanting to add more but I think it turned out ok.  It's kinda fun to challenge yourself to do something different once in a while.



Here's a closer look at that pretty flair button!

Celebrate the colors of the season

Hey everyone, I'm back today with a new LO to share using the Feels like Fall collection and a cut file from Paige Evans.  Fall is my favorite time of year for so many reasons. I love that it brings crisp air and beautiful colors.  It's also my favorite time of year to take photos.  We often do a fall photo shoot but for this LO I just used a quick snapshot of my daughter running through the leaves.  I miss the days when I could pick out her outfits!



This is such a beautiful collection to work with.  I really like that it includes some teal and blue which are not the typical fall colors.




I love adding a lot of phrases and sayings to my LO's!

Best Day Ever

Hey everyone, I'm back today with a new LO to share using the Ain't Life Grand collection.  The idea behind this LO was pretty simple.  I knew I wanted to use this collection because the colors were so perfect for my photo.  I just used a triangle punch to create a fun background and added some orange stitching through them. 


Then I just needed to add a few embellishments to finish it up.



I absolutely love how this collection is perfect for boy photos...even teenagers!

Summer Fun

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new LO to share.  A few weeks ago I talked about how I love doing summer LO's because there are so many products to choose from.  On this LO I used 2 summer themed flair buttons.  They went perfectly with the Hello Summer collection from Simple Stories!



Word flairs are my absolute favorite!



And more yellow!  You can never have too much yellow right?

Perfect Day

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new LO to share using the Dream Big collection and a cut file from Paige Evans.   When I cut out this file I had just planned on using it as is, but when I started putting some of these beautiful papers behind it I just had to use them!


I love that a lot of the collections have these little word stickers!  They are so versatile.


These die cuts are perfect for quick and easy titles!

Fabulous Smile

Hey everyone, I'm back today with a new LO to share using the With All My Heart collection and a cut file from Paper Issues.  This may be one of my favorite LO's I've made with this collection.  I just love the softness of these colors with the white background and cut file.


I just love these little cut apart flags.  I use them on almost all my LO's

Be Happy

Hey everyone, I'm back today sharing the LO's I made with the Be Happy kit at Papers & Beyond.  Of all the past kits in the store, this one is my favorite.  It was so easy to work with!  It features products from the All the Good Things collection from Vicki Boutin and Good Vibes from Crate Paper.  The colors and patterns are absolutely gorgeous.

Life is good:
I knew as soon as I saw this blue paper I had to scrapbook this photo of my daughter with the blue wig! Isn't it perfect? I used a cut file from Paper Issues and just added it to the back like a doily. I then created a vertical line of embellishments going down my page.





Sweet Weekend:
When I got my kit, I absolutely loved this piece of paper that had stripes of all colors on it. I knew I had to use it in some kind of fun way. These paper chevrons are really easy to make. You can find lots of videos with instructions on YouTube.





Love you tons:
The Be Happy kit has so many color schemes in it. It's so versatile you can use it on any type of LO. I used a cut file from JustNick Studio to add a fun background to my LO. I absolutely love these cork pieces in this kit!




Go check out the store!  There's a new kit out for August and it's amazing!

Beach Hair

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new LO to share for A Flair for Buttons.  Summer LO's are always the most fun to make right?  I get so many photos during the summer.  There also seems to be a lot of summer themed products out there including flair buttons.  Sooo much to choose from in the store!

For this LO I used the Hello Sunshine collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio and a cut file from Paige Evans.


Here's some close ups of the flair buttons:

Always Smile

Hey everyone, I'm back today with a new LO to share for Pretty Little Studio using the XOXO collection.  I went totally out of my comfort zone with this LO.  I dripped some Heidi Swapp color shine down my cardstock in multiple colors to create a rainbow effect.  Then I just added bits and pieces in coordinating colors.  It was really such a fun and easy LO to do!


 Here's a closer look



The colors are so pretty!

Sweet Blooms

Hey everyone, did you know that's there's a new Scrapbook kit club in town....and it's Canadian!  That's right!  Papers and Beyond is based out of Calgary AB.  So all you Canadians who have always wanted to join a kit club but were scared of customs fees can finally get a beautiful kit delivered to you every month!

I was given the sweet blooms kit to work with last month.  This kit features the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane and Kaisercraft Fleur collections.  Here's what I came up with:

Thankful:
This was a really simple and quick LO. I cut out a file from JustNick studio in black and backed it with pattern paper. I really like that this kit included a lot of black elements. I always feel like my LO's need a little bit of black.


Here are a few close ups:




Love love love:
Pink is my favorite color to scrapbook with so I absolutely needed the Sweet Blooms kit! I backed a cut file from JustNick studio with some pretty pinks and florals and then stitched around it just to make it pop more. The little wood embellishments were the perfect finishing touch!


Some close ups:




Spread your wings:
I can't believe my sweet little girl is already 14 years old. She's just 3 in this photo! I used 2 cut files from Paper Issues to create a wreath and then used a punch to add a few more butterflies. A simple ring of stitching tied it all together.


A few close ups:
