Happy Birthday layout + Process Video

Happy Hump day everyone. 

Today's layout share is about my birthday from three years ago. I wanted to incorporate a ton of photos from that day so I got them printed off in a 2x3 size. I also got to make my own shaker type title accent and use up more scraps and bits of items from my homemade kit. 

Here's a video sharing how I created my page....

And here are the close ups....

Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope you have a fantastic day.

Till next time,

It's All Good layout + Process video

I can' believe how many pages I've managed to create with my homemade scrapbook kit. If you want to see the items that I had put together in this kit, you may watch my video here

This one helped me use up more of those fun mason jar cut outs from a dear Lizzy paper. I was also able to play with my new Gesso. 

Watch me create this page from start to finish here...

And here are some close ups of the project...

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic Monday.

A Very Sweet Excursion + Process video

Happy Saturday dear friends. Today I'm sharing a layout based off of this sketch from Scrap our stash. It was the perfect foundation for my page about a little trip the kids and I took to a Krispy Kreme store in Denver. It makes me want to have a donut right about now. 

And here's a process video sharing the page from start to finish...

I had a blast making this page. Here are a few more detailed shots of the layout...

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic weekend.

Exploring Texas scrapbook page

Two posts in one day, can you believe that? Well this one is another layout that I'm submitting for a couple of challenges. 

I love doing the Scrap Our Stash challenges. It helps me incorporate different products from my stash in my layouts. 
For this month's stash challenge I used the following:
P- Polaroid frame
H- Heidi Swapp Mist
O- October Afternoon stickers
T- Tags
O- One chipboard bird
S- Studio Calico stamp (chevron on background) 

I was also inspired by this sketch from Sketch N Scrap, which I turned it upside down to use on my layout. I also replaced the star accent with mist instead. 

 This layout is about our trip to Texas in 2012. We had to walk from the parking lot to a little trail to go to a fun water fall. It was humid at that time and I had initially wanted to make my title say something about the humidity but decided that I should just write that in the journaling. I didn't want my title to sound negative.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm hoping to start some process videos next week.

Till next time,

Our Good Friends layout

Hi there friends. It's been a while. I took a much needed (and hopefully well deserved) vacation with my family to California from June 27-July 7 and we've had birthday celebrations all of this week so as you can just imagine, my scrapbooking have been put on hold. But thankfully, in the middle of the chaosness of getting back into the swing of things, I got pockets of time here and there to work on some pages that I'm submitting to a few challenges. 

This layout was inspired by the color challenge in ScrapMuch?
I used all the colors except purple. But if you count the color of my daughter's clothes in the picture, I got all five of them *wink*

This page was also inspired by the sketch on top from Stick it down challenge blog

So I'm still using my Belle kit from last month and I used some scraps of paper for layering. I cut out the flowers on the right edge of the paper from an Elle Studio paper. I added the bottom one with foam adhesive to give it more dimension.
Can you tell my mistake here? When I photographed my page, I didn't realize that I had lost the "i" in the word friend. I will have to look for it in my scrap space, which with it's current state right now might be a little too difficult.

My stickers and embellishments from the handmade kit are a bit disorganized right now so I only had a few to add to this page.
I guess organization and cleaning up will be on the top of my to do list this coming week.

Thank you for stopping by.
