My Little Dude | Creative Scrappers

Good Day friends,

It's reveal day at Creative Scrappers for sketch 265 and I'd like to share my layout with you.

A few weeks ago my sister and her kids came for a visit. Of course I took the opportunity to get a few new pictures. Once I saw my nephew wearing a green and blue sweater I knew it was the perfect time to get a photo of him so i could use some Simple Stories - A Charmed Life. 
My Husband had a pair of sunglasses and I asked him to remove the lenses - A fun photo prop for some kids NOT wanting to take pics!

This layout is called My Lucky Dude!


 This is the sketch for the CS reveal and Hopefully you can play! 


To Win a prize from Scraptastic all you need to do is create a layout

So Loved | Scrapbook & Cards Today

I'm sharing a layout All About Cars today at Scrapbook & Cards,  I created using some the NEW Simple Stories Sn@p Set - Cats.

Sadly, our 13 year old cat passed away in late February and after two weeks of having no furry friend in the house, my husband and I decided it was time to add to our family. We found two little kittens at only 6 weeks old and lovingly added them to our family. We named them Archer and Willow (aka: Archie & Willie) - in my layout today it's all about Archie!

This Sn@p set from Simple Stories is perfect for those cat pages and they also didn't forget about those of you who have Dogs. These sets contain everything you need to create a mini album, project life spread or in my case a layout.

I created my layout by using some 3x3 cards as well as cutting some 3x4 cards into this exact size. I added some stickers on pop dots to create dimensions, and even cut out a few cute paws from a 4x6 card.

As you can see, Cards can also be used for your layouts, not just pocket pages!
Thanks for letting me share today and be sure to remember to scrapbook those furry friends!

Friends | Paper Camellia

I am sharing a layout with you today using some of my scraps from the March kit. This was so easy to do and i'm sure you can do it as well!  You can use a silhouette cut file for your background or you can punch circles in a piece of cardstock - and now a days some companies sell placemats that you can use that are already pre cut for you!

I cut out my cardstock and placed it on another white piece of cardstock. I then placed my cut up circles behind the mask and sewed the edges. I added a few embellishments and VOILA! so much fun ;-) I'll be doing this format again for sure!

Mister Bedhead | Allt Om Scrap

Hello Friends,

I am a Guest Designer for Allt  Om Scrap from Sweden this month. I was more than happy to be a part of this great blog and when Marie Johansson asked. I created a sketch especially for this reveal and you can play along as well! 

The layout I created is of my nephew. He's 2 and so cute! When I see him he's usually waking up from an afternoon nap. He walks around with his hair all over the place and when i see him I often call him Mister Bedhead!  We all have those bedheads but i think his is much cuter than mine ;-) 

Thanks for reading today and if you want to participate please CLICK HERE to visit Allt Om Scrap ;-)

April 2012 | Simple Stories Life Documented

Hello Everyone!

I posted a LIFE DOCUMENTED spread at Simple Stories today. I'll show you a few sneaks but if you want more please visit my post ;-) While you are there could you leave me a little bit of love?! ;-) Please !!! xx

Here are a few sneak peeks - but i have MUCH More on the Simple Stories blog !

This picture with tons of mini pics is done using an APP called Project 365. This reminds me on a daily basis to upload a pic I took of that day. It can be anything and sometimes it's just my face, the weather, what i ate and other fun stuff. It keeps me on track by reminding me and at the end of the month I can upload my picture or email it to family members. I Love it!

I will be using the 6x8 Sn@p! Leather Album in black for all of my Life Documented pages for 2012. It's sturdiness, metal corner accents, and stitch details are fantastic and durable. The album will be handled often so durability is a must - this Sn@p! album is the best!!

I used a variety of inserts for this monthly spread - a 6x8" size featuring 2x2" to 4x6 and also a full 6x8. The Sn@p pocket pages come in a variety that you can add to your album. PERFECTO!

Hope you enjoyed my sneak peek and will be coming over to visit Simple Stories today!

Every Tuesday You | Paper Camellia

Good Morning Friends !

It's time for a new sketch at Paper Camellia ;-)

This Month I created a sketch with 2 mini photos in mind. I love all the 2x2 minis out now and a few manufacturers have them included in their collections.

My layout is called Every Tuesday You - I wanted to put Everyday You but it didn't fit with my larger cut title. I compromised and put Every Tuesday You! Just something different.

I love this little page, my niece being silly during my last visit. She is loving the camera and when i ask her to post as a model she goes crazy! Not at all like her sister!
We shall see how long that last! Regardless I'll enjoy the moments.

Creating this layout with the March PC Kit,  I added some diecuts, and cut out my squares about 2 1/2 inches with a punch.
I decorated every square individually with some diecuts, and added more gold hearts to this page. I tell you this Chickaniddy Gold paper rocks!

Have fun creating this month and please share!
 We now have a gallery where you can share your projects!
