Things I Love About Her . . .


I have another scrapbook page to share with you today. I *adore* this picture of my daughter Kaleigh and thought it would be perfect for a layout highlighting all of the things I love about her. And what better stamp sets to use than PTI's Top Ten and Top Ten Additions. I also created a little pattern using the Simple Valentine collection of patterned papers. Ink and button colors are Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst. I also used the Marvy scalloped heart punch for my title. Just a nice, clean, simple page centered around my very favorite subject . . . *wink*

Pretty Please . . .

Here is another scrapbook page I completed recently. My daughter is such a girly girl! She *loves* to get all dolled up!!! My hubby snapped this photo of her getting ready to go out to do some shopping and I thought it was just begging to be scrapbooked. I used some American Crafts patterned paper and stickers from the Dear Lizzy spring collection for this layout. They seemed perfect to me - so scrumptious, just like that lipgloss! I also used some PTI products - Polka Dot Basics II and Top Ten stamp sets, cardstock in Kraft, ink in Fresh Snow and Pure Poppy, and buttons in Melon Berry. The border punch used was from the Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration catalog. I spent some time this weekend going through my stash trying to get things together for a 16 hour crop this coming Saturday in honor of National Scrapbooking Day. Looking forward to having some new creations to share soon!!!

*gasp* Two posts in one week???

I know, I know - it's quite shocking isn't it? But as I said I really have been crafting. I actually get together with a couple fellow teachers about once a month for marathon scrapping sessions. Here is a page I created during our last session. It features so many fun things!!! I am *in love* with the new Dear Lizzy line from American Crafts! The patterned paper, ribbon, and flair button are all part of it. I also adore pink, especially this shade from Papertrey Ink called Sweet Blush. I also used PTI stamps to create the title (Outline Alphabet) and journaling block (Cupcake Collection and Top Ten). I am also fond of cupcakes, especially giant ones. And that sweet little girl, she's kinda cute too dont'cha think???

What I've been up to . . .

Hello there to all you folks out in Blogland! And a special hello to all my fellow Papertrey Pixies!!! I have been neglecting the old blog a bit but rest assured I have been crafting and creating, so today I thought I'd take a minute to share one of my recent projects with you. This layout was inspired by an art journal I purchased for my daughter, Kaleigh from Starbucks recently. I used the Mini Scrapbook Series: Tabs stamp set from PTI to create a border on the left of the photo and to add the words "doodles, sketches, ideas" underneath. I also used PTI ribbons in Summer Sunrise, Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores, and Ripe Avocado to mimic a rainbow on the left of the page. Then I used some Making Memories alpha stickers to write "i am creative, i use my imagination, i am an artist". Love how this turned out! Hopefully I will be more motivated to keep things updated here. I already have a couple of things line up to share in the near future so make sure to check back soon . . . *wink*
