Got a few layouts to share today now that we are back from vacation. I finally think I have figured out how to consistently squeeze out some time for scrapping and other projects…I just quit going to bed a reasonable hour!
This first layout was for Erika’s Issue Challenge at Club CK last week. We had to use a monogram. I also had fun using my new Studio Calico hexagon mask, some mists, and fun Echo Park papers to complete this Easter layout. I also busted out some ancient chipboard from my stash and it matched perfectly!
Next up is one that I just did for fun. I had been wanting to scrap these photos for a while and I recently bought this beautiful new Carta Bella paper (a line I’ve never used before, but love)
This layout was done for my friend Ashley Horton’s Sketch it Out Challenge also at Club CK. I love Ashley’s sketches and I think this one is one of my favorites. As soon as I saw it I knew exactly which photo I wanted to use. This one came together super quick using some of my This and That by Echo Park and the cool little “Adore” folder from Heidi Swapp.
And last but not least, my favorite…it’s a layout for Weston documenting his very first vacation. It’s a hybrid layout that I did using multiple photos and lots of journaling. I used some really old curly paper clips and some baker’s twine to form the border around the layout. I submitted this one for this weeks’ Issue Challenge, which was to use paper clips. I recently bought a ton of new product, so I’m trying to incorporate a lot of old stash with the new stuff to help use it up.
I hope you all enjoy your weekend!!

First off I want to say Happy Birthday to my baby boy–he’s 3 months old today! 🙂
This week we had a wonderful sketch by Jenny Evans to work with over at Frosted Designs. I recently FINALLY got my items I’ve been waiting for from Stop and Scrap and one of them was the Echo Park “A Boy’s Life” set of papers. The very first sheet I pulled out of the package inspired me immediately to create this layout of my son:
And this was the sketch for the week:
Make sure to stop by Frosted Designs to play along! Just create a layout using the sketch and upload it to the Sketch Challenge. I can’t wait to see what you all create!

Hello everyone!! Well, February is here and with that…thoughts of Valentine’s Day! This month I am participating in the Valentine’s Day Card Blog Hop with some of the gals from Club CK. If you didn’t arrive here from Heather’s Blog , please go back to the start at Amanda’s Blog. For this hop, Amanda sent all of us a small pack of goodies to work with and create our own take on a Valentine’s Day card. We were also welcome to add a few bits of our own. For my card, I turned the paper into inchies, and put them together in a patchwork pattern. I covered one of the chipboard hearts in patterned paper, and painted 2 of the smaller chipboard pieces and stacked them, topping them off with a jewel. The red and pink polka dot pieces were actually packaging from some Christmas stickers my daughter had received from her secret Santa swap in December. Here is my card:
I am not really much of a card maker, but I enjoy challenging myself with one every so often.
And now for the fun stuff…I have a prize to give away. One lucky winner will receive this :
