I Need Vitamin Sea

Hey, hey, hey!  Thank goodness it's almost weekend time!!

I wanted to pop in and share a recent layout that I made.  It was made 100% for fun.  I loved this cut file from the Silhouette store and I just recently got the Hello Summer from Simple Stories, so I combined the two to scrap about Piper's first time playing at the beach:

Have I mentioned how much I love this cut file?!

Celebrate Card

Good morning everyone!  I hope your weekend is going nicely!

I am popping in to share a birthday card I made with the It's Your Birthday collection from Pretty Little Studio.  This collection is so cute and the card came together so quickly and easily.

I began by gluing my patterned paper to my card my base, then topped it with a vellum doily.  After that, I mounted my die cut sentiment to a strip of patterned paper and glued it down.  I covered everything with the pink star acetate and then scatted around some phrase stickers.  My finishing touch was to fussy cut a party hat from one of the cute papers and add it to the top of the first "e" in "celebrate".
Thanks for stopping in!  Have a wonderful day!

Crafty Girl

Hi all!  Happy Fri-yay!  I am back with another layout that I made for a recent challenge at Paper Issues.  This time the challenge was to use stickers as your main embellishments...not as easy as it sounds, but I managed to pull it off...and I got to use the super fun Crafty Girl collection from Simple Stories:

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi everyone!  I've been playing along with a few scrapbooking challenges recently and I wanted to share!  This layout was created for a challenge at Paper Issues and the challenge was to use chipboard on your layout...that's it.  So, I broke out my favorite new collection from Bella Blvd/Illustrated Faith and went to town!

My layout is a lift of this gorgeous layout from Missy Whidden...although, mine is way simpler and her's is waaaay cooler!  :)

And once again, I'm pretty proud of myself for straying away from my typica white cardstock background.  

Have a happy day!

Easy Birthday Card || Pretty Little Studio

Hey everyone!  I am popping in to share a very simple birthday card I made for my mother-in-law and shared earlier today on the Pretty Little Studio blog.

Today is her birthday and all she asked for was a homemade card and pictures of Piper.  I decided to combine the two and make her a photo card:

Piper's shirt says "Mama & Sunshine & Peace & Naps & Love, but I took some painter's tape and alphas stickers so we could change it to say "Grammy" instead of "Mama".   We took a bunch of cute pictures and I then made a collage and printed it off and matted it on the cute paper from the "It's Your Birthday" collection.  Finally, I added some sentiment stickers and tags.  All-in-all, it was super simple and easy to do, but hopefully it will still make her feel special on her day!


I'm Baaaaaackkkk!!!

I know, I know...I've been super MIA these last few months.  I have a good reason!  I started working again full-time at the end of March and I was finishing up grad school (which I just completed last weekend!) and all my free time was spent watching the tiny child...so yeah...scrapbooking fell by the wayside.  But now I have legit free time and I can scrap to my heart's content (on the weekends and in the evenings).

For my first layout  back, I participated in a Paper Issues challenge to use a striped background, which is so far out of my vanilla comfort zone, but it was fun.  Even more fun?  I lifted this amazing layout by Cassie Box.  I still like her's better, but I love this bright, happy line from Doodlebug Design, so I'm not complaining.

Have a happy, glorious weekend!


These Little Knees || Pretty Little Studio

Good morning everyone!  I'm popping in today to share a layout that I recently made with the Wish You Were Here collection for Pretty Little Studio.  Even though this collection is a travel collection, it can be used to document everyday moments, too. 
Specifically, I decided to document my daughter's scraped and bruised knees.  She's crawling now and her knees are always showing the wear and tear.  I loved this collection for the layout because the travel phrases like "on the go" and "let's explore" are also perfect for documenting my little crawler :)
Here's the full layout:
Thanks so much for popping in!
