Clique Kits' August Pep Rally

Hello!  Happy Pep Rally day!

How much fun is the August kit?!?!  I'm telling you, I love pretty much EVERYTHING that Fancy Pants Designs manufactures and the Millie & June collection is no exception!  So, obviously, this month's Clique Kits kit is one of my faves :o)

For my layout share today, I decided to scraplift this amazing layout by Missy Whidden.  I LOVE it and the cut file from The Cut Shoppe sooooo much.  Her layout is waaaaaay better than what mine ended up looking like, but I tried ;-)  


Here is the full line-up for the hop:


Thanks for popping in!  Have a happy week!

Fall Jewel Mix

Good morning, everyone!  I am so excited to share that the super-talented May Flaum has teamed up with Buttons Galore to create a limited edition mix called Fall Jewel!  This mix is choc full of pretty buttons, sequins and beads.

I was lucky enough to get to play with this mix and created a fall-themed layout - doesn't the mix match the new Fancy Pants Millie & June line perfectly?

Now through Friday, if you use discount code LL400 at checkout in the Buttons Galore store you can get this mix for just $5.99!  Now that's a good deal!  :)

Thanks for stopping in!!

Scraplift Satuday || 8.20.16


Good morning, everyone!  I've been away for far too long!  Life got busy there for a while, but I have a teensy tiny break right now, so I'm gonna get my scrapping in :o)

For today's Scraplift Saturday post, I selected one of my favorite layouts to lift:

In keeping with the Bella Blvd theme, I broke out my long-hoarded "She Blooms" collection and got to work:

I sorta love it.  It's so much busier than my normal stuff...so many patterns and colors...but I *think* it works.  It's so far out of my comfort zone, I'm not even sure :)

Have a happy weekend!!

Using Lots of Die Cuts || Pretty Little Studio

Good morning!!  I am popping in to share a layout that I have on the Pretty Little Studio blog this morning.  It is all about highlighting die cuts.  There are so many awesome PLS die cut packs to choose from so I had a difficult time deciding what to do for this project.  In the end I decided on one of my favorite packs: the Woodland butterflies!  I also sprinkled in some other die cuts from the same pretty collection.

Purple Layout!!!

Good morning, everyone! Earlier this week I shared a layout on the Pretty Little Studio blog that I made with the Pretty Please Here Comes the Sun collection.  When I saw this fabulous photo of my friend's daughters I knew that this collection would perfectly compliment it.  It just screams summer fun!

I found a cute cut file from The Cut Shoppe, backed it with some paper from the collection and scattered minimal embellishments around to complete the look...and I used PURPLE cardstock...I still can't get over it...so unlike me  :o)

Creative Scrappers || Sketch 297

Good morning, everyone!  Happy August!  Time is whizzing by!

I wanted to pop in and share this month's sketch from Creative Scrappers:


This month's sponsor is the awesome The Cut Shoppe!  There is even a free file for you to download and play with.

I had so much fun with this layout.  I love, love, LOVE the Quirky Quads background file that I used on this layout.  And I adore the new Elle's Studio collection.  I struggled a little with the sketch itself, but I just shrank it down a bit and found it much easier to work with.  I was still very inspired by it and its overall design:

I really hope you can all play along with us this month!

Thanks for popping in!

Cutie || Pretty Little Studio

Good morning, everyone!  I am so happy to finally be able to play with Pretty Little Studio's Pretty Please Here Comes the Sun collection.  The colors are so soft and pretty and the patterns are so fun.  For my first layout with the collection, I decided to scrap a layout about my dog, Moose.  I picked out the masculine colors from the line and layered them in strips and sewed them all on top of each other:

It was a simple and easy technique, but I really like the end result.
