Movie Time - Felicity Jane April What I'm Doing Now Kit

Another kit club I have decided to try out is the Felicity Jane kit. Now these papers are all exclusive to this kit club and I have just been drawn to how bright and colorful they are.

For this layout I used several sized circle punches and scattered them in a diagonal line across the page.

This is a picture of a movie date I just had with my son and daughter to see Insurgent -- loved it!

Hope you enjoy the layout!

Sweet Girl - April Hip Kit

Hello Again,

I have another layout share using the April Hip Kit. This time I used the Websters Pages paper that was in the kit, and let me tell you this paper is swoon worthy. Is was so hard to pick which side to use.

These are pictures on my now 22 year old daughter (can you tell I am a little behind in getting pictures onto pages). I love looking through these old photos, and remembering how my sweet little girl used to be.

These memories are the reason I scrapbook. 

Hope you enjoy the layout!

Just Chillin - April Hip Kit

The April Hip Kit contains all kinds of bits and pieces from the newest Amy Tangerine line Rise & Shine.  After digging through all this fun stuff, I decided to get this picture of my son and our chocolate lab onto a page.

Now I know the little elephant has nothing to do with the picture but it was too cute not to use!

Hope you enjoy my layout as much as I enjoyed making it.

Hip Kit Club - April Kit

Hi my scrappy friends,

A few months ago I thought I would try out a new (to me) scrap kit club called the Hip Kit and I have to say that I have loved working through the amazing supplies that are included.

I thought I would start sharing what I am making with these kits and I sure hope you enjoy...

Aside from the main kit, there are add-ons and one of these every month is called a color kit and this gives me the opportunity to start dabbling in a little mixed media. The April kit included a stamp set, Prima watercolor pencils and some Heidi Swapp watercolor cards. I used all three on this layout!

Now the picture above is of my own little leprechaun who I am absolutely smitten with!

Hope you like the layout as much as I enjoyed making it...

You & Me Using Maggie Holmes Open Book

When I saw this dartboard and arrow paper included in the Open Book Collection I knew I wanted to scrap a picture of myself and the hubby.

All embellishments are from the collection as well. It was fun to use those frames and all the bits and pieces that were available and I have been hoarding.

Most importantly, it was a bonus to get this picture on a page.

NSD 2015 - Layout #2 Using the Open Book Collection by Maggie Holmes

Me again and I am happy to report I was able to play a little more on NSD.

Since I had the Open Book Collection out and a picture of some books....

I used some liquitex acrylic white gesso to lightly cover the background and then mixed up some modeling paste with some Heidi Swapp gold mist. I then applied the modeling paste and used a Donna Downey stencil.

You know I am not sure what I love more ... reading or scrapbooking... I think I will keep doing both.

Amy Tangerine Stash

Sometimes don't you just love modern technology? I do when it comes to grabbing pictures from my kids facebook pages that I want to get put into an album.

This is one of those pictures.

I bought my daughter a stand for Christmas to house these layouts in for decorating around her apartment. Are they not the cutest couple! I really like this one.

Noel Mignon December 2014 - Scrapping through my Stash

I honestly never knew I could get so many layouts completed just using this kit! I have a bunch of kits to work through so that is a good thing (and I have lots of pictures to get on pages too!!)

This is a picture of my great niece that was posted on Facebook.

The title of this says it all - such a sweet girl!!

I again used a sketch from Creative Scrappers 4.

Noel Mignon December 2014 Scrapping though my Stash

So, do you do a Christmas card photo shoot? I have to with 3 kids that are all busy and going their own ways most days. I was able to get this picture on Thanksgiving and it worked out perfect for our Christmas card.

I did use a few bits and pieces from my own personal stash and a sketch from Creative Scrappers 4.

Hope you enjoy.

October Afternoon Santa Sack stash

My daughter posted this picture on facebook of herself and her boyfriend out on a date night and I knew I had to make a page of this.

I immediately thought of the background paper I used from October Afternoon with the skaters on it.

All paper is from a Santa Sack I received from October Afternoon. I also used a sketch from Creative Scrappers to kick start the process.

Noel Mignon December 2014 - Scrapping through my Stash

Another layout completed with the Noel Mignon December 2014 kit.

This was taken on Christmas morning after all the gifts were opened and it was time to relax a bit before company came over.

Not only did I use the kit, I used a bow die I had to have from My Favorite things that was purchased over a year ago (SHHHH - don't tell I have lots of supplies like that).

Noel Mignon December 2014 - Scrapping through Stash

I subscribed to Noel Mignon scrapbook kits for all of 2014 (and some of 2013) - I love the kits but found myself not using them up quickly enough. So I have put myself on hiatus until I work through some of my stash.

I decided to pull the December 2014 kit out and get one of my Christmas pictures on a page:

This is actually from Christmas morning and my 2 daughters and my oldest daughters boyfriend helped with getting some cookies decorated. If you had seen these cookies, well, they were really only something a mother would love (they were tasty though!).

This time I decided to use my Shimelle stash:

This is my niece and son when she came in for a visit from their recent move to Iowa. She just adores my George ...and I think he is pretty crazy about her too!

thanks for looking.

Scrapping through my Stash using Heidi Swapp

Over on the Cricut Circle message board we are challenging each other to scrap through our stash. Well, I don't know about you all but I would probably never need to buy any paper or embellishments again due to my 'collecting' of all things pretty.

With scrapping through my stash in mind, I pulled out the Heidi Swapp Hello today collection to do a layout of my son and nephews.

My nephews recently moved to Iowa and this was their first visit in since the summer. They were so excited to spend time with my George and I have to say, we sure loved seeing them as well.

I love how this came out, and considering I even stamped on the page I am calling this a success!

DCWV January Stack-a- Holic Challenge

Not only is the stack old but the picture is as well as these 2 kiddos are now 12!!! Seriously, where does the time go.

Here is my layout:

The patterned papers are from the Carnival Stack and the plain background paper is from the Chalk Fun stack.

Hope you play along!!
