My Scraps and More: Cool Dude

Hello and Happy Thursday! Today on the My Scraps and More forums I have a Thursday Throwback challenge! I love using up my old stash as I tend to hold onto my favorites!  I used Crate Paper's 
Boys Rule collection which is a classic boy line!  


For my title, I used a cute cut file from Just Nick  called "All Boy".  


I still have a lot of the chipboard ephemera from Boys Rule; I adhered two above my photo, as well as added a cute badge from {a flair for buttons} and a wooden veneer star from Studio Calico. 






Thanks for stopping by today!  Check out the challenges on Facebook as well as the forums for daily inspiration!  Have a great day!

My Scraps and More: Hello Summer


Hello...I can't believe its Wednesday already! The week is getting away from me! I realized there are only 6 weeks until the first day of school!  Summer always seems to go fast...and it hasn't been very warm here. We've had a lot of rain in Central Illinois so we haven't had a chance to really go to the pool!

Today, I'm sharing a layout I created for My Scraps and More using the new Crate Paper Poolside collection.  I love all of the little bits and pieces in the embellishments! The Ephemera pack is full of fun die cuts!  I scrapped a cute photo of my niece and nephew at one of our local splash parks.  


I used the cute "hello" banner from the Chipboard Sheet with a bright sticker.  I layered both over a coordinating chipboard frame.  

I layered ephemera pieces with additional stickers.  I love the wooden enamel buttons!! They are one of my favorites!

OA Summertime: Summer Checklist 2015

Hello! I'm back again because I have my last guest post on the October Afternoon blog today! It's been a fun month creating with OA's wonderful products!  

I used a Daily Flash album to create my family's must do list for the summer!  I love the bright colors of Summertime as well as the fun theme embellishments like this pink flamingo!  I decided to keep the front of my album simple by adding a few patterned papers as well as Daily Flash Alphas and Summertime Date Stickers. I finished by adding a doily and bakers twine from my stash!

I love the Grey Flannel Chipboard Alphas!  I have a huge collection of different colors! 


Each Daily Flash Album come with a variety of different configurations of pockets. I love the smaller  squares such as the 2x2's!  



Here, I used one of the Summertime Memory Cards for my journaling! I added a Date Sticker as well  as one of the coordinating Double Take stickers.  Also in the collection is a new Catch Phrase roller stamp with twelve fun sayings to choose from! 


I love the light string sticker from the Double Take sheet!  I also used Orange Alpha Stickers for my #2 on the list!  The photo of our dog, Max, "helping" my husband grill cracks me up!  :)

I love the page of just 2x2 squares! I cut different patterns as well as used a piece from the 
"Green Grass"  sheet (which is nothing but 2x2's with cute sayings and pictures!).  

The A side of "Blue Skies" has multi-sized journaling cards such as this 4x4 sentiment! You can also add in Memory Cards as well!  




Thanks for stopping by today! What is your favorite summer activity? Have a great day!

Scrapping Our Stash June Blog Hop

Hello! It's the last Friday of the month and that means another "Scrapping Our Stash" blog hop!  I hope you'll visit everyone on the list! 


Jennifer Haggerty http://livethemoment-jen.blogspot.com/ *you are here!*
Wendy Bergeron Coffman http://stampingrules.com


For my page, I used up most of my remaining stash of Teresa Collins Urban Market collection!  I love love love this line! The navy blue with silver and grey are stunning!!  I scrapped a cute photo of my nephew, Deacon!  I layered up lots of patterns as well as a photo overlay under my picture!  


I had cut out these fun feathers from Silhouette on silver foil paper for another project but decided to not use them.  So, I thought they would look great to accent the silver and navy!  I added a cute "happy" Chipboard Sticker as well.  


I cut off the bottom portion of one of the Urban Market Tags and had it peek out from under my photo. I also used one of Teresa's Signature Essential Silver Enamel Dots, as well as a coordinating card stock sticker.  One of my favorite wooden veneer shapes are these stars from Studio Calico!  I love using them on my pages! 

Here I created a cluster of embellishments using the Decorative Brads, Enamel Dots, Decorative Tape, and Cardstock Sticker from Urban Market.  The chipboard letter is from the Pink Paislee Atlas Thickers in silver.  

At the top of my photo, I added more chipboard and stickers, as well as another cute wooden veneer star! I love to layer things if you can't tell! LOL  

Thanks for stopping by! I'm doing a giveaway of some Teresa Collins goodies today! Just be a follower of my blog and tell me what your current favorite collection to use (it can be new or old)!  I will choose a random winner Tuesday June 30th!  
Have a great day!

My Scraps and More: 8

Hello and happy weekend! Today I'm sharing a layout I created this week for a challenge at My Scraps and More. If you haven't joined the forums, be sure to check out the daily challenges!  
For my page, I used Crate Paper's Maggie Holmes' Confetti collection. I love Crate Paper and their papers never disappoint!  It's geared towards birthdays but can be used to scrap pretty much any theme! I chose this beautiful photo of my niece!


The collection has two 6 x 12 sticker sheets with many shapes and letters! I chose these cute pennants to place under my photo.   I love the gold accents! And you can spy some of the specialty gold foil vellum underneath, as well! 

For my title, I used one of the chipboard numbers from the Chipboard Accents sheet.  

I love all of ephemera pieces that come with the collection! Here, I used a ticket along with a doily from my stash!

More ephemera pieces! I layered a kraft tag with a "love" circle sticker, as well as added a gold glitter star and a gold paper clip (from my stash).  

I am a fan of ledger paper so I used the B side of "Centerpiece"...it has just enough color without being overbearing! At the side of my page, I added more stickers as well as a stamped sentiment from one of my AC roller stamps.  To finish, I used Tattered Angels and Color Shine splatters on my background, as well as added some Teresa Collins sequins!  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to check out the FB group for the Got Talent Challenges! And  the MSAM shop is always getting new products in! For the month of June use code 20June15 for 20% off regular priced items!  Have a great day!

Paper Camellia: Hello Fun

This week is the official start to summer! Today I'm sharing a layout I created for Paper Camellia using the June Main Kit. It's full of beautiful papers and summer themed embellishments including Pink Paislee's Citrus Bliss! I scrapped an old photo of my daughter swimming in a baby pool. I miss her being so little!

Clear Scraps and Ruby Rock It Hop



This week Clear Scraps is teaming up with Ruby Rock It! They were nice to send our team a large selection of papers and embellishments!  I created a little home decor piece using the 3.5 x 5 Clear Box along with the Clearly Accent Bird and Cage Embellishments!  I used Ranger Alcohol ink to color my bird and cage.  I also added chipboard pieces from Ruby Rock It Nostalgia, as well as a cute pin from Jillibean Soup.



Here is my project in full view.  I covered the sides with patterned paper from the Nostalgia collection. 


I created a mini album to fit inside the Clear Box!  I decided to do a sort of ATC type of book to use some of my supplies.  










Be sure to check out the Clear Scraps and Ruby Rock It blogs for lots of inspiration this week! Have a great day!
