The Every Day Snapshots | Layout

Another Layout to show you today! I've been to 2 crops in the last 2 weeks and the first crop i was able to finish 4 pages, which was a big deal for me ...

The crop was organized by Let's Capture Our Memories and - The Every Day Snapshots - was created in less than 1 hour for the hour challenge. So much fun! I love those challenges cause i don't have time to think about it.



Again for this layout I used my favorite collection - Snapshots from Bella Blvd. You can also purchase this collection at Let's Capture Our Memories. I think all papers and a collection pack are still in stock! HURRY!

Have a great week!

Scrapbook & Cards | Color Suite Challenge

I was lucky enough to have been asked to join Summer in her monthly feature at Scrapbook and Cards called the Colour Suite Challenge. Every month she showcases a color palette and challenges YOU to create a layout or card based on the colour scheme.

This is what she selected for September! 


I absolutely love the colour combination She selected for this month's Colour Suite. It kind of reminded me of sherbert! I think the pink and green mixed together in a large ice cream bowl would be yummy don't you?! 

I was lucky enough to play with some new Bella Blvd (Snapshots Collection) for my pink, green, grey, and black and the brown pillow gave me the extra color found in Cork which can be used in a wide variety of ways. The perfect Combination to the Colour Suite Challenge!




Supplies Used: 
Patterned Paper: Bella Blvd
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Stickers: Bella Blvd / Jillibean Soup
Alphas: American Crafts
Kraft Tag: Jillibean Soup
Misc Embellishments - Fancy Pants ;  Studio Calico ; My Mind's Eye
Ink - Studio Calico

Good Morning!

I am so happy to be posting this reveal today. It's been a while since Creative Scrappers has been active and a really long time since i've been part of the team.

This is our sketch 251 created by me, and of course my love for circles and stars is prominent in this sketch.



This is the layout I created - Sightseeing Cows!
 I was going to call it Photobombing Cows but i didn't!  This week i got a parcel in the mail that had all the new Blvd Blvd Snapshot collection. I was in love and of course had to create this page with it.

What About Me | Printables

Hello Friends!

I've been playing around with a few digi kits lately and trying to create a few printables - for layouts or project life. this is one i recently finished and i'd love to share it with you! it's FREE!


this is the kit i used from Erin Bradley ..  and I simply created my own elements - diecuts if you wish to call them.


you can easily print the downloaded version on an 8.5 x 11" piece of white cardstock. cut up the journal cards and punch out the circles and voila! A few new diecuts for you ;-)



I would love to see what you create with them! 
thanks bunches

Toronto | Layout

hello dear friends,

The weather is getting a bit chilli on the East Coast - I'm now wearing socks and long sleeve shirts !!! YUCK! On a positive note this allows me to sit at my scrapbook table guilt free ;-) No need to " go outside an play " i can just sit with a cup of java, silence in the background and my scrapbook paper... pure bliss! Doesn't take much !

So last Sunday night before Big Brother I had a an hour to relax while hubby watched the Simpsons or America' s Funniest Videos or something and I grabbed some October Afternoon Travel Girl. I haven't used that yet and decided it was time to play.

I had a picture of the Toronto Sky line and grabbed a few embellishments - even some gesso and started creating .



It's more of a monochromatic page and it was fun creating! I didn't care about the outcome just the process ... it was great!

I know some of you are wondering if i sent in my application for Bella Blvd! Sadly, I didn't -  it just wasn't my time. I wish everyone who send in submissions the best of Luck!

I am planning on attending Crop & Create in Thunder Bay this October! Jody Rogers, Nicole Nowosad and Myself will be creating for the weekend.
I'm looking forward to it, I think it's been since April since i've attended any CC Events. Can't Wait!

Have any of you registered? or even considering going?!! Come On .. it will be a blast I'm sure! Want more info .. CLICK HERE and maybe i'll see you there ;-)

talk soon!

A Whole New Doodle | Projects

Good Morning Friends!

I am sharing a new hobby of mine today. In early July (i think) I started a doodle class with Stephanie Ackerman called A Whole New Doodle. I figured I could start doing this at work while waiting for calls or on my breaks. It relaxes and helps me be creative during the day when i need it the most. So I started !!!


I love her classes - Stephanie gives you pdf forms and examples and you work at your own pace. If you've ever wanted to try or just be inspired this is for sure a great class to start. 

So i've been creating a few 3x4" cards for my project life spread and I'm also creating a few cards to share with friends in my Facebook Project Life Card Swap group. ( if you haven't joined us--  Send 50 cards and get 50 cards! )

Here are a few of my cards --
Some are better than others but overall I love them ;-)

Three Houses
( i had this one taped to my inspiration wall
with washi and the top got a bit torn)

In the Valley

3 Houses Down

Apple Field

In the Backyard

Little House of Love

Little Shed

Red Barn

She Wasn't Pretty
Poor lady!
It was my first attempt at a girl --
I kind of messed up her face!!!
But i like her shirt and background so i couldn't just get rid of her!

This is My House

I have 3 cards I'd like to share with you!  Not the ones posted but 3 originals that i'll create for you. Leave me a comment and i'll pick a winner on Friday Morning ;-) 
The Winner will be posted here Kathy Skou ;-)

Thanks for reading today and if you're a doodler i'd love to see your work!  Here is a link to Stephanie's Class list - in case you're interested.
