fall photos

Just a quick scrapbook layout to show you today. Not much to say...another set of photos that was really hard for me to scrapbook again, my crafting has sort of been in a slump lately. I did however snap out of it when I got word that one of my layouts is going to be published!! This is the first time for me and I am still on cloud nine! I was able to eek out a couple of layouts over the weekend....I'll show you one tomorrow, the other I just may submit so that will have to wait.

this layout uses the Mellow line from Basic Grey and some of the Making memories chipboard buttons.

new basic grey!!!!

This card is for the featured stamper challenge over at SCS. Sparklegirl was the one to case today and her gallery is chock full of amazing creations!
I needed a birthday card for my nephew and the new basic grey Cupcake was calling my name. Paired with the fun cupcake set from hero arts and a lovely sketch from sparklegirl. I was able to whip this one up. If you haven't seen all of the new Basic Grey stuff, hop on over to Embellish-Online and check it out. The coupon code for a 20% discount until the end of May is mayflowers.
make it a great day!

Fun and Games

This is one of the pages I got done the other day. I love this Summer Picnic paper it is so fun and well...summery! It's perfect for boy or girl pages and it's really easy to work with. You can't read the games part of the title. It's the white SU! letter rub-ons from the coordinating pack of rub-ons. The chipboard letters are from Basic Grey, covered in Summer Picnic DSP and the stamping is from the Big Pieces set. a little ribbon and some buttons finish it off. I've got another page in the works...hope to finish it off sometime today.
have a good one!

butterfly in my tummy!

Ok I lied! I'll post my 2 layouts from today..tomorrow for now I forgot I had not posted this page yet. I absolutely love the new Making Memories Lines. The die cut shapes and embellishments are so great. I really didn't know if I would be able to use this huge circle. For one I only had one and I wanted to use it on the perfect layout and 2, I had no idea what I was going to do with it! I found this sketch on the Sketch This! website and fell in love with it so I thought I'd try it out. I just love the way it came out. I had the perfect title thanks to J and the spinning photo was perfect for the circle page.

It's hard to see in the picture but the white ribbon on the top and bottom of the photo is a line of butterflies. It is so adorable. This is definitely one of those layouts that is so much better in real life. Check back tomorrow if you want to see what I was working on today! I'm out of time..have to go pick up the kids.

This was a quick card I put together so J could get his b-day thank yous done. I really liked the way this came together. A little pattern paper and some punches and you're all set. I think I'll use this layout for a card set. I'll replace the stars with some pretty flowers and change up the sentiments. It'll be a quick and easy gift.

I've actually gotten some scrapbooking done today. Two pages to be exact. They took me forever! I kept having to add things and move things around. I also used quite a few stamped images so that took a while as well. I'd call it a success even though I really wanted to get more than that done today. I've bee totally alone the whole day and while I thought it would be great and I would get a tom of scrapping done, it was actually kind of lonely! My two scrapbook pages will follow!

make it a great day!
