Guest Designer | Jillibean Soup

Yes, someone please PINCH ME! Most of you know I love JILLIBEAN SOUP, I adore Kim & Jill and have had the pleasure of meeting them a few times at CHA and Crop& Create Events.  I am thankful for this opportunity to be a guest and perhaps someday I'll be a " Designer! "

Here is 1 of 4 projects that I'd like to showcase with you today

This one is called LIFE 101 - A sweet picture of my niece - being happy and full of giggles as i take a quick photo of her adorable smile. I did this layout in 6 sections to showcase LIFE 101... LOVE/ Smile / Enjoy Today/ Eat your Veggies and Exercise! 
Some of those I don't do myself everyday... but it was a message I wanted to give her.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I'll have another to show you tomorrow ;-)

A Few Decorated Blogs

Hello Friends,

I've been enjoying Decorating Blogs the past few weeks, it's keeping me busy on my days off and especially rainy days! I just wanted to share a few with you today. I usually post them on my facebook page but in case you and I aren't " fb friends" here is a peek! ;-)

First UP.. Delaina's  - Love the simplicity of this design. She wanted something soft and something with color - she selected a kit from Natali and it was perfect!

This next make over was for Carolyn - I recently did her scrapbook store blog and she wanted something similiar in style - she loves cameras and this wonderful quote-
I like how she selected all her sidebar/posts in seperate boxes. Makes a nice clean look.

This next one is Mercy Tiara's - Love the simple look and those colors together.. are fabulous! 

Next is Jenny Evans - She loves Nicole Nowosad's blog and it's style in general so I tried to mimic but not copy Nicole's blog and this is what i came up with

And after doing all these, my own blog got a makeover !! Love the orange and i wanted something a bit different -

and My latest one, that i finished last night - Karen's. Love the kit she selected, those soft embellishments with pink and blue.. so pretty!

 Thanks for dropping in today!
I have no other good news to share ;-) Maybe Tomorrow!

Project Life | Up to June 23

hello Friends!

I finally have an update on my Project Life Spreads! Just so you know I haven't given up and still enjoying the process. I'm still taking a picture a day and keeping track with Project 365 (iphoneAPP) I find this quite useful when i'm sitting at my scrap table and wondering .. " what the heck did I do Tuesday!?" I try to finish my spreads on Saturdays and so far so good!
I don't document everyday, I do most days. I try and take atleast one selfie and of course pictures of Eddie and hubby. I usually have weather forcast, some events that happened during the week and a few scrappy news.

This is Eddie - he usually likes to help when I take pictures of my layouts outside!
I do find the PL spreads HARD to photograph. Always a glare, and not so clear. I am sorry for poorly taken photos - no sun and a kitty ;-)

Here are a few of my spreads
you can click on the photo for a closer look, keep in mind this is my personal album.

Good Laugh | Layout

Hello Friends!

Sharing a layout with you today - created with the Cocoa Daisy May Kit - Record Label. 

 I'm really enjoying these CD kits - it's giving me the mojo to create and also create with different manufacturers and colors. I tend to stick with one company and don't really stray too far for my embellies and stickers... so this is good for me cause CD does all the work for me and I have no problem matching my papers!

This is a picture of myself and Jody - 
We've known each other for about a year or more and this past March I got the opportunity to meet her and Sherri Funk in person. It was so fun to say Hi and touch base. We took a few pics with these cute lips and mustaches and had a good laugh together. 

Thanks for reading!

My Creative Scrapbook | Layering Tips

Today I have some awesome layering tips to share using the  My Creative Scrapbook  June Main kit!
Layering is one of my favorite techniques these days, it can be with left over papers, journal cards, stickers, anything you want to add to your page to make it look like it has tons of layers!!! so much fun. 
"Use die cuts, scraps of papers, journal cards, and anything you have left over from your kit grab some pop dots and start layering! 
Journal Cards can be cut in half
Start layering under your photo -
not gluing them down yet but just for placement ideas
I glue the inside of my papers, leaving the outer edge free and clear of adhesive, this makes it easier when adding more diecuts or papers
i sort thru my die cuts, chipboard pieces and stickers
start adding them to my page, over and under to make a great visual effect
then my favorite part is adding pop dots, I add them on the edges of my papers, this gives them a dimensional look
i then add a few little extras, a title, and some ink splats and VOILA!
so simple and a great way to use up those leftovers from your MCS kit!"
