Just in Time Fall Layout

With the month of October coming to a close, it feels like this layout with fall colors was finished “just in time”. Although, just because the colors remind me of autumn doesn’t limit the different themes this page could be used for. I used many different flowers, a butterfly and a bird as complements to the photograph that will be put on the mat.

I used mostly Prima flowers from my stash, but also some pretty silk flowers that my friend had given me too. Of the Prima flowers I was able to incorporate many different lines including the Impressions Dots, the Chelsea embossed flowers in Plum and some super cute white layered Artist Aids flowers.


I love how the real lace turned out and the chipboard bird too.

What does everyone else think? I’m open to suggestions! :D


If you would like to see more photos of this layout you can find it in my Etsy shop HERE.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a super creative week!

A little Halloween page to share

halloween spider 2

Here I made up a Halloween themed 12 x 12 Scrapbook page. I used some cute background paper… do you see the little ghosts? :D Otherwise there is a lot of spider webs and Prima flowers. You can see more of this layout HERE.

The candy corns glitter, the light green gems in the title set off the green flowers and green here and there. Main colors include purple, orange and black. Whimsical spiders (not too scary) as accents on torn mats. Well, paper flowers are not too scary either, but I just have to have them on everything, you know how I feel, right?

The orange patterned buttons are really fun to make up! They start out as bare chipboard and I covered them with paper from my stash of Basic Grey Ambrosia, sanded the edges then inked them, and I was ready to add my bakers twine and glue to the layout! Really fun and easy!

I bought these bare chipboard buttons from the shop SpectacularStuff on Etsy. She hand die cuts all of her chipboard shapes, and is so nice to work with on custom orders! Let’s just say… she is very sweet, and fast with cutting all the different shapes and shipping. The quality is perfect on these shapes! Is there not a better way to help your creativity than to start with quality supplies? I just want one of everything in her shop! :) I'm almost there... hee hee.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a joyful, creative day!

A Baby Boy page for a special friend!

Here is one lonely photo of a page that I made for a friend’s new baby. I absolutely loved how the little elephants turned out. What do you think? :) The title is all glittered and the photo mat also has glitter stripes going through it. I add shimmer all over the place… cause I like sparkle. The paper is embossed with dots for a nice raised effect. On this layout I left space for her to write in her own sentiments, or put the baby’s bracelet or another memento on the left of the page. The 5x7 photo mat has 4 layers, all inked and the top layers are stitched. We have some pretty flowers and flourishes, and some shiny brads to top it off. 


Photo turned out somewhat dark… apologies. :)



Last year’s July 4th layouts!

Wow, I’m trying to update things and well, I guess I’m going to start with the older layouts first! :) I should have taken photos of them all, but bear with me as I search for photos of more work I’ve done, and bring in some newer scrapbook pages soon!


Glittered flowers, hand paper pieced airplane, banner with rhinestone flag, layered shiny stars, hand drawn fireworks and sparkler. Acrylic frame with wire charm and hanger. The mats are all stitched around the edges and the flag mat was pieced as well. My little bear is wearing his cutest matching 4th of July outfit (hand drawn and pieced as well) Even the stars were cut by hand! This one took a lot of work, but I think it turned out nice. I hope you can zoom in on the photos.
