Fabulous

Hi there!

I'm up today with another entry in my Vegas Vacation album. I only have a few more pages in this album to finish. But, I'll still be scrapping vacation photos because my husband and I just came back from another vacation, last week. So, I have two vacation albums to do; one for a Cabo San Lucas trip and now to Cuba.

When the kids started getting older and left for college, I worried that I'd have nothing to scrapbook. But, it seems like I've found a new subject to scrap about: Me!!


When I first saw this scalloped paper from Crate Paper, I thought it begged for some stitching. It took a long time to do, but I just love the texture it gives the page. Pretty much everything here is from Crate Paper with a few items from Heidi Swapp thrown in.

I used to be an avid cross stitcher and I still have all the DMC floss, so I was able to go through my stash and find matching colours to the paper.  Another reason to never throw away craft supplies!

Thanks for looking!

You & Me and Sidewalk Canasta

Hi there!

Today, I'm sharing some more pages that I completed during the Paper Issues Spring Crop a couple weekends ago. I was pretty happy to have completed four layouts during that weekend. I managed to complete a couple more before the challenge deadline.  I'll share those next weekend.



The "You & Me" layout was for the Follow the Leader challenge.  Through Facebook Live, Annelie Maddock gave us instructions and measurements to create this page. It was a lot of fun! The design is a bit different than what I'm used to creating, but at the same time, it looks like my work.  Funny how that turns happens! It was nice to use a photo that wasn't from the Vegas album.


This page is for the Sketch challenge. These photos are of us in Vegas playing Canasta. I used some notepad paper for the title and journaling and I have an old deck of cards that I pick from just for scrapbooking.  Nothing fancy about this layout, but the photos just make me smile.

Most of the supplies for both pages are Crate Paper or Pink Paislee.  Both manufacturer lines coordinate so well together

Thanks for looking!

So Adorkable

Hi there!

I'm up today with another layout I made during the Paper Issues Spring Crop.  The challenge for this layout was to use one of their free cut files.


Papers: Pink Paislee, Recollections; Embellishments: Crate Paper, American Crafts,
Pink Paislee, Thickers, Stickles, unknown gems, sequins

This cut file was fun to use.  Even if it did take me three tries to cut it.  My Silhouette just did NOT want to cooperate! And I kind of gilded the lily here by adding so many other embellishments to the wreath, but just love how it all came together.

Thanks for looking!
