Paper Camellia December Days Christmas Countdown Mini Album

Hello...sorry I've been neglecting my blog!  I haven't been making much time to post.  Work has been busy as well as the kids' activities keep me hopping.  Anyway, I will try to be better!  And honestly, I've been in a bit of a funk when it comes to scrapbooking.  I'm hoping to spend the entire  day in my room tomorrow to try to get some of my mojo back. ;)
Today, I'm sharing a mini album I created using the Paper Camellia December Days kit.  This extra kit is stocked full of beautiful paper with the traditional red and greens, as well as touches of grey and black.  Also, you have a multitude of embellishments to choose from! 
 
 
 
 

 
The kit also includes exclusive wood veneer words such as this "Joy".   I adhered a few of the die cut trees from the Pink Paislee Merry and Bright collection. 

 
 
December Days also has exclusive flair buttons!  I used the cute reindeer at the top of my page with a glitter snowflake. 

 



 
I used an 8 1/2 x 11 page protector and cut it down to 4x6. I then added the Teresa Collins Designs sequins and stitched the edges. Lastly, I added one of the Pink Paislee Glitter Words. 




I am loving the White Wood Grain Cardstock from American Crafts!! It's so lovely! Did you know you can order it from the Paper Camellia shop?




 
 



 



 
 
Thanks for stopping by today! Are you making a December Daily or album to document this year's Christmas? You can see the December Days kit in its entirety by going here!  Have a great day!

Teresa Collins Designs Nine & Co: Together

 Hello and happy Saturday! Hope you are enjoying the weekend!   It's been a bit too cold here in Central Illinois but at least the sun has been shining!   Today, I'm sharing a layout I created using Teresa Collins Designs' Nine & Co. collection!  Something to get you in the fall mood! 
 
 
 
 I used the Together Handwriting Title (#44954) 
 with gold foil paper for my title.  I then added an arrow sticker as well as a decorative brad and enamel dots. 

I also used this cute leaf wood veneer shape from Nine & Co.  I used more gold foil paper as well as patterned paper to cut additional leaves (cut file##21750).  



 
 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you are having a great weekend!

Practical Scrappers Scrap Your Stash Blog Hop: Fall/Halloween Edition

Happy Halloween!  This is one of my favorite holidays and today I'm happy to be a part of the Practical Scrappers Scrap Your Stash Blog Hop.  If you are following the list, you've come from    Kristy's blog. Below is the full list just in case you  need it!
 
 

 
 
 
 
For my projects, I used My Mind's Eye's Mischievous collection. I've definitely been hoarding it since it was debuted in the summer of 2011.  I scrapped a photo of my husband and I from a costume party in 2004!
 
 
I created a banner using two of my hand punches as well as chipboard pieces and coordinating brads.



 
I had some papers and embellishments left over so I decorated this mason jar to fill with Halloween goodies as teacher gifts!    I used the 3d Straight Edge Flower cut file by Jamie Cripps ( #44283)  from the Silhouette shop as my center and added a cute brad and bakers twine from Whisker Graphics. 


 
Thanks for hopping along with us!! Up next is Cheryl's blog! Have a great day!

Teresa Collins Designs Nine & Co: Happy Place

 Hello and happy Wednesday! Today, I'm sharing a layout I created using Teresa Collins Design's Nine & Co collection.  I love the warm colors of this line: perfect for any theme included fall :) 
 
 
 
 The wood veneer owl is adorable!  I placed it just at the corner of my photo. I also mixed in pennants cut on my Silhouette from the different patterns with pieces from the Ephemera pack.
 
 
My title was cut from white cardstock and a cut file (#60834)
by Kolette Hall.   I added a cute gold foil chipboard arrow, as well.  

 
Showing the beautiful colors, including pieces of gold foil paper!  
 
 
More embellishments from the line; I love that Teresa gives you so many options to choose from!  
 Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll check out Teresa's collections by going here.  I've been thinking about my dear friend a lot lately.  If you follow Teresa's blog, you know her husband is battling cancer.  Teresa is the sweetest, most down to earth person. She would do anything for anyone. I hate seeing their family go through this.    I hope you will join me  in lifting them up in prayer.  I hate cancer. I've lost so many family members to cancer, including my beautiful mother.

Paper Camellia October Kit: Slide

Hello! Today I'm up on the Paper Camellia blog with another layout from the October kits.  I used both the Main and Add On kits.  I am loving the bicycle print paper! So cute!
 
 
 
Here, I layered some of the pieces from the My Mind's Eye Mint Julep Ephemera pieces.  I love the mixture of the colors with the gold foil!  


For my title, I used the gold foil Thickers from Jen Hadfield's Pebbles line.  If you know me, I love anything gold!  :)   I added more ephemera pieces as well as some cute enamel shapes from the Mint Julep collection. 
 
I made this cute banner at the top of my page with some pennants again from the Mint Julep Ephemera pack.  I then stitched through with my sewing machine and added a gold foil heart.   The Ephemera pack is found in this month's Add-On kit.


Also found in the Add-On kit is this gorgeous cream and gold foil dot paper from Jen Hadfield.  It's even more beautiful in person!!  I layered a piece under my photo as well as added more ephemera pieces!
 
Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check out this month's kit as well as the December Days kit that's now in the shop! Have a great day!
