My Scraps and More: Life is Sweet

Hello! Hope you are having a good weekend!  It's been beautiful here in Central Illinois...perfect summer weather!  One of my favorite summer treats is ice cream! Today I'm sharing a layout I created for a My Scraps and More challenge!  My husband and I enjoyed some delicious waffle cones at Six Flags in June and I took a fun photo of the two of us!  

I used American Crafts Shimelle's True Stories collection for my layout. On my background, I used The Heart Burst cut file from The Cut Shoppe! I cut both the specialty vellum and a patterned paper and stitched through with my sewing machine.  


I used a wooden veneer word title from Evalicious' Life's Sweet collection! I am so in love with these fun embellishments!  

Here, I used one of the tags from the True Stories Die Cut shapes for my journaling. I also added a cute ruler and heart from the package. From my stash, I used some bright pink bakers twine from my stash, as well as fun flair from {a flair for buttons}. 

I love how the layering of vellum and patterned paper turned out!  I also layered more colors under my photo as well as added more die cuts.  

I also love the Cloud Die Cuts!! 

Thanks for stopping by!  Check out the My Scraps and More shop to see this collection plus much more NEW items!  Have a wonderful night!

My Scraps and More: Hello Summer


It's hard to believe July is almost over!  My kiddos go back to school in a little over two weeks. I think this is the first summer I am just not ready. In June, we had so much rain and cool weather so it really hasn't seemed like summer until recently.
Today I am sharing a layout I made for My Scraps and More using Simple Stories' Summer Vibes collection. For my background, I used a cut file from Just Nick Studios!


I love the fun embellishments from Simple Stories! I layered a few of the die cuts, as well as chipboard sentiment and frame. 

I placed different patterns in random rectangles.  At the bottom of my page, I added a fun sticker as well as the coordinating Bradz and enamel dots.

Paper Camellia: #Go

Hello and happy Thursday! Today I'm sharing a layout I created with this month's Paper Camellia Add-On Kit!  I am loving the travel theme of July's kits as there are lots of goodies from Crate Paper, My Mind's Eye, and Pink Paislee!  Also, Ria included Evalicious' new release: "This Way". 



I used one of the Crate Paper journaling cards to jot down about our day and added decorative brads from MME as well as epoxy shapes from Evalicious. 

I used these adorable cork Evalicious puffy letters for my title as well as another brad from MME!

My Scraps and More: Right Now


Hello! Sorry for my absence!  I've been working extra days at the office and then we went on a short trip to Michigan to see family. I haven't had much time at home at all!  

I'm sharing a layout I created recently using My Scraps and More Got Talent Challenge!  The challenge is to not use any patterned paper on your page!  So, I got out my washi tape stash and had fun layering!  



I added buttons and enamel shapes from my stash to coordinate with each colors!

I also added epoxy shapes and a photo clip from Studio Calico!  My title is American Craft Wood Grain Thickers. 

Along with buttons, I also used a couple pieces of flair from {a flair for buttons}!

Have a great night!

Clear Scraps + Clearsnap Promo: Happy

Hello! It's Friday and the end of our Clear Scraps and Clearsnap promotion! The nice people over at Clearsnap sent our design team some fun new Colorbox Surfacez inks!  Can I just say wow?!  I love how the colors pop on the acrylic surface!  

I used the Turquoise Surfacez on the edges of my Large Scallop Portrait Clipboard.  And its so easy to apply!  I actually used a foam applicator with the re-inkers (like applying alcohol ink).  It takes a bit more time to dry but I love the effects!



Using the Safari Surfacez, I colored my Clearly Accent Dress Form Embellishment to give it some "pop".   And I love how it turned out!




I used Maggie Holmes' Open Book collection from Crate Paper! I love all of the fun embellishments such as this chipboard banner! 


Surfacez can be used for stamping sentiments such as this one from Studio AE/Technique Tuesday. 



Thanks for stopping by! I hope you've been inspired this week by our promo with Clearsnap! Please check out both blogs for more inspiration and giveaways!
