    When I was sitting down to decide on a palette for this collection of products I knew I wanted to use a deep, velvety green – the kind of green you want to sink into – and that’s all that I knew for sure. As autumn settles in I find myself surrounded by more and more jewel tones, and when I was out and about in St. Paul last week I saw a deep green velvet couch inside a store and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. A green velvet couch would be the most impractical piece of furniture that a two cat household could own, but in my mind I could picture myself all curled…

    What do you do with those big stand-out scrapbooking products that you can’t resist in the store or that come with a kit? We’re talking that big applique of a bug, the oversized veneer frame, or the bejeweled and dimensional flower–items that draw your eye on their own but then present design and visual storytelling challenges when it comes time to use them on a scrapbook page. Our creative team shows you their pages built around stand-out scrapbooking elements. Christy Strickler used a big 12″ square wood veneer mat of welded hearts as the foundation for a page about…

    Hello Friends! I spotted this little bit of cuteness thanks to my friend Jennifer Ingle asking for a challenge. I immediately decided to join in, I mean, how could I not?

First I’ll share a little about me and then I’ll share two of my sweet creative friends! 1. What am I working on now? I have never really been one big on themes but my work is certainly reflecting my life. My latest flair packs have been fitness inspired and farm animals. My latest stamp designs are Southern Sayings and Stamp Designs I created for teacher gifts for Jordan’s teachers! 2. How does my work differ from…

    Hello Friends! Iʻm back with some new goodies and because, youʻll never guess what… I actually crafted. It has been way too long. I have never considered myself a runner. I have even made jokes about how nothing ran in my family but obesity or if you see me running, you better start running too because something is obviously chasing me. Back in February I started out by walking around our property. It was hard in the beginning. It started to get easier walking and I thought maybe I could run short stretches so I did. I started running a little bit longer stretches and took off around…

    Hello Friends! In my last post I told you that both boys have joined scouting, what I didn’t tell you is that I have wanted them to join scouting for years! Jalen was just not interested in joining. The real reason I wanted them to join was to offer them opportunities to learn things I just am not equipped to teach them. Wilderness survival skills are not my forte, unless you count watching Survivorman through squinted eyes. This past winter, the scouts came to our church as they have to our old church in years past but this year, both boys had friends who were present. I approached the…

    Hello friends. I have been a blog slacker and there just is no way around it.  I had ideas I wanted to blog but the longer I waited, the more I felt I needed to explain my absence. My last post was way back in January! Thankfully the only explanation is that life has been happening and it’s been pretty darned good. I’ve been keeping up with monthly head shots, here’s a look at us in the first half of this year! What has happened since January? We had snow in central alabama. We loved playing in it. It was amazing. and cold. and lasted a few days so we could get out and…

Thanks for stopping by!I have two brand new projects to share today. The first is a card that I made with the October kits. I used supplies from the Main Kit and the Life's Pages Kit on here.

    Nora’s birth was even more emotional than I had thought it would be. My grandmother had passed away two days before, so there were huge, sad, bittersweet, circle-of-life type feelings swirling around in me on top of the all-encompassing love I felt the second I laid eyes on Nora. Our bodies are pretty amazing things. I keep looking at this wonderful little creature and thinking we made her? From scratch? This perfect little being? Man, I love her. The birth itself was wonderful – I know it’s easy to say that now, since all memories of pain just evaporated the second I saw my…

I don’t really have much choice, given that I am now gigantic and even the act of turning over in bed requires significant effort accompanied by loud grunting, but it also seems wise to get as much rest as possible now before our lives change forever. I am currently 37.5 weeks, and I’m torn between wanting to meet this little belly-dweller now and wanting to stay pregnant as long as possible – I love pregnancy, aches and pains and all. Hopefully I’ll get another chance someday. I rarely blog about everyday life anymore, so here…

    Andrew was home a couple weeks ago. He was so excited to meet his grandson and i was really happy to have him home. We knew he was coming home shortly after Lucca's birth so we planned his baptism around Andrew's visit.  Twenty years ago or so, i wore this dress to marry the man of my dreams. It had a straight body with this wrap around bustle. After i wore my beautiful gown full of lace and fabric, i had it cleaned & sealed for protection and possible later use.  i had an idea brewing a long time ago of turning my dress into baptismal gowns for grandchildren. i thought about…

(I have used HomeAway.com for the past couple bookings and it has been smooth sailing both times. I recommend it.) Collin had to work so he couldn’t drive with us and instead flew down a day later.

    Tags are my favorite. Sorry cards, envelopes and boxes. If you want to get a pretty painted or watercolor effect to the bottom of a project try dip dying! It gives it such a cool ombre look. You also don’t have any brush stroke lines and basically let the paint do all the work. Each tag taking on its own look. Give it a try… When I dip, you dip, we dip! Little tags: (doodles are from iheartstudio.ca: ) I dip dyed plain white tags into red food coloring mixed with some water and once it was dry, I adhered them to some wax envelopes and embellished it with Dear Lizzy stickers,…

They are 2″x3″ when folded which qualifies as being adorable in the card making world. I love fall, I love feathers and I can’t stop watercoloring.

I am the queen of putting off cleaning up by making piles. I already requested this on Instagram but, please send help! In the form of magical elves, Mary Poppins, or Tony Danza. I’m not picky. But preferably Tony from the Who’s The Boss years. Just purchased this print from an artist in Australia. I’m obsessed with the simplicity and playfulness. I want this one bad for my girls’ room.

Ah yes, the joys of middle school. And lockers. Rachel's counting down the days until she gets a locker, too.  The start of each month for 2014 is a Becky Higgins Design H page.

    You can buy some cute Dalek dressess - Hot Topic has a couple - but why not make your own? Last year I decided to make a Dalek costume and a Dalek for the front yard.  The main things you'll need are plastic ornaments, spray paint, fabric paint, a shirt and tulle. For the skirt: I bought a couple of yards of tulle. The fabric store didn't have a good metallic color, so I spray painted the tulle myself using Krylon in a hammered finish.  I wanted to make it easy to make, so I basically folded the tulle in half, rolled the top over about an inch to hold a piece of ribbon and…

    I finished this pastel painting last week, but finally got around to resizing the photo.  This is another view of the mountains across the lake from where we stayed in Tailloires, France.  It's the same view that Cezanne painted, although I don't have a tree in front of mine.  I do have the Château de Duingt, just like Cezanne. For this painting I used a four value underpainting. You can see the pinks popping out from behind the pastel. Here's what it looked like after the underpainting was done. It's very rough, and very simplified.

    Hi friends, how are you doing on this pretty Tuesday morning?  I hope you are feeling creative today because I have a super technique to share with you that is both ‘green’ and fun to do. Not only is it a play on words but the titling seconds as journaling and page interest too.To get my story across I used catch-phrases, hashtag-style, with meanings that relate to having a kid who is a

    You have scrappy heros right? I know I have plenty! Today I wanted to show you how one can successfully lift/ channel someone without a direct copy. For this page I incorporated x2 lifts into one page, with fun results. I used inspiration both from layout, accents placement, color & photo layout ideas. Many thanks to the very inspirational designers who's pages I used for this demonstration.

    29 Sep 2014 | 2:58 pm
    Ahhhh, crafting time! You come in fits and starts these days. I finally had to make some time to craft because I needed a card for my mother-in-law's birthday. I remembered that Moxie Fab World had another Fabulous Friday challenge going on and it was the perfect inspiration for her card.I pulled a few inks that matched the colors of the pots and stamped a cute doily all over the cardstock panel. Then I was inspired by the cactus to have something "growing" on the page and punched flowers out of vellum and randomly stapled them on a few doilies. (I'm still loving vellum on my cards.)Supplies…

I seriously love her!I made this layout from some left overs from a CKC class kit from a few years ago. It used the Nostalgia line from My Mind's Eye. I used goodies from the class kit and some newer embellishments, like the wood veneer. I added the "3" sticker because she is my third great-niece. The cute little flair are some sweet Studio Calico finds from my local scrap store.

    23 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    As many of you get ready to embark on Week In The Life™, I want you to think about this statement:Our days are built with stories.  Often when I begin documenting my week I'm hyperfocused on writing down the schedule of our day. Stuff like the times we get up, the times we eat, the time I leave the house to take the kids to school and the time I return home to sit at my desk.I still plan to do that to some extent this year, but as I alluded to in my post earlier this week, I also really want to be conscious and intentional about the micro-stories that make up a day or…

That's a lot of time on airplanes. Enough time to read three books (more on those later) and play a whole lot of Candy Crush.  It feels strange to be back in my house. Amidst my stuff (oh how that desire to purge is in high gear again) and the regular routines…

    alice
    15 Oct 2014 | 10:00 pm
    I love incorporating different mediums all into one scrapbook page. Today, I am demonstrating some of my favorite techniques at the moment – stamping, watercolors and stitching. I love starting off on a fresh, clean sheet of white cardstock. To make the watercolor shapes, I made a small circle with a juicy dot of paint and used a straw to blow some air to make this splattered effect. For the 2 strips of paint below, I just painted two short lines, lighter color first, darker color on top. To add the circles, I punched out some phrases from Shimelle’s and my Stitched line of…

    Some of you may remember I designed a set of ‘real life’ phrase stamps for Two Peas in a Bucket last year, called Nailed It. With the closure of Two Peas, I now have the remaining sets of this design and can ship them from here in London, which may make a difference if you were hoping to order a set to a European address and shipping from the US was too expensive. Of course it’s still possible to send them back to North America if that’s where you are! These stamps are high quality photo polymer, made in the USA. They are long-wearing and can be used with a variety of…

    When I saw that the Shimelle collection was overloaded with fabulous patterned papers I could not wait to get my hands on it… all of it. I immediately jumped in and got started. I picked a few papers to save for background papers and then I started cutting the rest into strips. Some of various widths but mostly in the one inch and one point five inch category. I am thrilled with this collection and can’t wait to create even more projects with the supplies I have left. Day One On this layout I used twelve strips of patterned paper. I cut each piece of paper just under an inch wide.

    Gold is all the rage right now, and using gold foil in scrapbooking has become a staple. I’d been toying with the idea of using actual gold leaf in my scrapbook projects for a while and recently decided to give it a try. In doing so, I found that it’s actually quite easy to work with. Now I’m adding gold leaf to almost all my crafts and may even prefer the texture over gold foil! Below is a three part video series where I create a mini book using some of the lovely products from Shimelle’s new scrapbook collection. In all three videos there are examples of the simple…

    This isn’t a new story. It’s a story regularly told with the cliche time flies. And the frequently offered advice: “Enjoy them while they’re young! They grow up too fast!” Last week, I pulled out of the driveway with my 15-year-old son in the van. At the top of the driveway is a wooded circle with two granite boulders and a picnic table. We call this area “the big rocks.” As in: “I’m going up to the big rocks.” Kids were playing. It could have been my boys ten years ago. “I hate that you’re not little any more!” I…
  • Scrapbook Page Storytelling When Setting is Key

    Some photos and scrapbook page stories are all about place. When setting is key to your story, extend it from the photos out onto the canvas with these scrapbooking ideas. And remember: the basic building blocks of written story–character, plot, and setting–can all be incorporated into scrapbook page storytelling. Vicki Hibbins says, “This layout shows my husband and daughter playing on the beach together this summer. I chalked a sky and used strips of torn paper and mulberry paper to create the sea. I also used scraps of card-stock to make pebbles. I wanted to create a…

  • Better Journaling

    25 Oct 2014 | 3:00 am
    As a memory keeper, I LOVE journaling. For me, scrapbooking is about more than pretty photos and beautiful kits. It's about telling a story, using photos and words. When I first started scrapping, I fell into the trap of just being so excited about the pretty papers and fun photos that I missed the point of storytelling. I had lots of pages with just one big title like, "DREAM" on my page, and nothing else. When I got my first batch of layouts printing I looked at those pages and realized that there was so much more to it. There were stories to tell, thoughts to be penned, and memories to be…

    Hello all! Brenda Smith (3littleks) here to bring you my first paper page featuring my husband. Not only is he hard to get a photo of but I struggle to find just the right kit to fit his personality. Then one day I spot this lovely little kit called Gramercy Road. Thank you Peppermint and Gossamer Blue! This amazing set of papers and elements hit all the right things I was looking for. The colors, patterns and elements worked perfectly with this one photo I had of my handsome husband. As soon as my box with these goodies hit my doorstep I jumped right on this page. First, I added a thin layer…

    I’m so very excited to share some work featuring Peppermint’s new kit for Gossamer Blue, Gramercy Road. This set has an amazing variety of products, perfect for every type of scrapper. It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed scrapping as much as I did with this kit. Since hybrid is one of my favorite worlds to craft in, I used Gramercy Road to create a couple of layouts. My hybrid process is typically different than most follow, so below you will find a couple before and afters – can you notice the subtle differences? Apparently big titles are all the thing in my…

    Hi there! Donya here again, sharing a spread from my 2010 album and a peek into my Project Life process. I really feel that it took until this year to find my Project Life groove and with that came the confidence that I could go back and complete an album for 2010 while staying current with my 2014 album as well. I may not be quite as far along as I’d like to be, but page by page it’s coming together. This spread is from late summer of 2010 where my oldest boy (now 4.5 years old) was just about 5 months old. As you’ll notice, I chose to use a lot of black and white photos…

    When I was sitting down to decide on a palette for this collection of products I knew I wanted to use a deep, velvety green – the kind of green you want to sink into – and that’s all that I knew for sure. As autumn settles in I find myself surrounded by more and more jewel tones, and when I was out and about in St. Paul last week I saw a deep green velvet couch inside a store and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. A green velvet couch would be the most impractical piece of furniture that a two cat household could own, but in my mind I could picture myself all curled…

    Hi there!!  Stephanie here with you today to share some pretty eye-candy from Peppermint’s brand new (and amazingly awesome) collection, Gramercy Road for Gossamer Blue!!  If you follow me on my blog or Instagram, you probably know that I have a little love obsession with fall.  I love everything about the season! The smells, the sights, the sounds and especially the colors!  Peppermint hit the nail on the head with this collection and it just screams warm and cozy. The colors are such a fun mix of bold and neutrals with these fun little bursts of green, pink and blue here and…

  • Halloween Banner and Frame

    25 Oct 2014 | 12:30 am
    Are you getting ready for Halloween?  I know I am.  I have used just about all of my MME Frightful Bundle this month to create Halloween decor for my home. Today I wanted to share with you a banner and photo frame I did using the ready to frame 8x10 set. When I was trying to figure out what to do with the these, a friend gave me the great idea to turn them into a banner. I selected three of three of my favorites and punched two holes in the to of each.  Then I cut two 6x8 pieces of paper and punched two holes in the top of those.  I alternated the 8x10 and…
  • Altered Wine Decor

    22 Oct 2014 | 12:30 am
    Apryl here with FotoBella's design team. When I think of Prima Marketing products, altered projects immediately come to mind for me.   Prima has so many fun embellishments that lend itself to such great creativity.  I found a basic black wine cork holder at Big Lots and went away to work on it with the Forever Green Prima bundle.  There was a blank area at the front that allowed me to place the "it's the little things" title in the center of the piece.  The flowers, stick pin embellishments and rhinestone gems are simply beautiful!I tied some raffia at the…

          Hello, glad you could join me today for a fun altered frame tutorial.  Apryl here with FotoBella's Design Team. Check out the I Want It All Bundle I'm featuring, Prima Marketing's Forever Green Collection.        It is a great collection to have if you are really into altered projects.  I went to Big Lots and just got a plain old black, 4"x6" frame.  Here are the steps to re-create this frame:1.    Select the “Watch Them Grow” patterned paper.2.    Place the frame face down on the paper and…
  • Christmas Collage Santa Layout

         This Santa image is my favorite piece of paper in Bo Bunny's Christmas Collage I want it all bundle from FotoBella! I just had to use it, so I'm back with another page that I scrapped of my son when he was just 6 years old.     I also wanted to use the film strip, which I didn't get to use in my previous projects. It worked great with this fabulous sketch from Bo Bunny.     I did a lot of distressing, misting, machine-stitching, and inking on this page, including the title stickers, which I inked along the bottom in red. It really…
  • You're My Everything Card

    15 Oct 2014 | 12:30 am
    Creating a masculine greeting card can sometimes be challenging.  The Prima Forever Green collection at FotoBella offers some great options for card designs, and masculine is one of them.  I chose the "you're my everything" sentiment, matted it in white card stock and popped it up from the back ground so that I could place some fun raffia behind it.  I fussy cut some ferns a tucked those behind the sentiment as well.  I could't resist adding a little bit of bling, so I added two rhinestone gems on either side, mixed in with the raffia.  It was just…
