More Fun with Highline

Hey, everyone!  I have another layout to share that I made with Basic Grey's Highline collection.  I just can't get enough of the beautiful, bright colors!

I once again combined the collection with Heidi Swapp's Favorite Things ephemera pack.  I think those two collections pair together quite nicely.

To create this layout, I used a Citrus Twist sketch that can be found here  Here's a look at the finished product:

Hint of Mint in my Project Life

Hey everyone!  I am participating in another one of Marcy Penner's and Stephanie Bryan's Jumpstart Challenges.  The current challenge is a pocket page challenge.  They are challenging us to use only one color in our pocket page spread.  I chose mint.  This was such a fun challenge for me and I love the end result - it's always good to mix things up a bit.  I love the black and white photos - I changed them to black and white, so the mint could really be highlighted - I need to use black and white more often.  



And yes - you saw that correctly...my Granny turned 100 a few weeks ago...she's such an amazing lady and I'm so glad I was able to document the special day- this is why I LOVE this project!

What do you think?  Do you like the monochromatic look or do you prefer more than one color?

The Studio: Mixed Media Challenge

Good morning, everyone!  Happy Sunday!  There's a new challenge up at The Studio today and it's a fun one - we want you to get messy and be inspired by mixed media.

I used my November Clique Kit and a lot of paints and mists to create this layout.  The results were a bit different than my normal style...but I think I like it...

I hope you can play along with us this week!!

Masquerade Ball Pep Rally


Hey, everyone!!  Today is a fun day - it's my first Clique Kits pep rally.  If you are unfamiliar with the CK pep rally, it's really just a fun little blog hop with CK design team AND subscribers.  Such a cool and unique way to share our work with each other and get to know each other in the CK community a little better.  I love the concept!

I have two layouts to share today.  The first one goes with the monthly theme:

I am so glad I live in a world where
there are Octobers--L.M. Montgomery

October has been great because seriously, in what other month would I get to see my cute niece playing in a corn pit?  I mean seriously.  Cutest kid ever.  This layout includes the October kit, plus the sew easy template which is available in the CK store here.  I am pretty much obsessed with that thing right now (which is obvious since my second layout uses it, too!)

My second layout is a just-for-fun layout.  It includes a picture from my wedding day (yes, I'm still scrapping pictures from the wedding that was over 2 years ago...don't judge!).  I've scrapped this photo before, but I didn't really like the results.  And since this is one of my favorite pictures from our wedding, I needed to do it justice.  I loved all the orange in the kit and knew instantly that it was perfect for this photo.

So, now that you've stopped by my little corner of the blogoshpere, I hope you will keep on hopping. If you leave a comment on every blog, you are entered to win a $10 gift card to the CK store.  Win! Here is the full list:

A Little Bit of Everything...

...went into this layout.  This is one of those layouts I made by just grabbing stuff laying around my scrap desk.  Glad I got some sequins and sparkly things included in it, as well as a new cut file from The Cut Shoppe!  Not too sure how I feel about the finished product - its a little bit all over the place, but I can't decide if that's bad or not...ha!


In other news, stop back by on Wednesday for the monthly Clique Kits pep rally - you're bound to be inspired if you participate in that fun little hop!

Jumpstart Challenge and Instagram Love

Hey, everyone!  Because it's a holiday weekend here in the U.S., I have a little extra time for "paper play."  I decided to participate in Marcy Penner's and Stephanie Bryan's first Jumpstart challenge.  I love both ladies' work, so I was excited to see that they have decided to post bi-monthly challenges.  This first prompt asked us to use a colored photo and a black & white photo.  This is one of my go-to techniques, so I had a lot of fun with this one.

I also decided it was time to use some of the stash that I've been hoarding - mainly this Crate Paper collection.  I also recently purchased some files from The Cut Shoppe.  It's been awhile since I used my silhouette, and I'm loving everything that Ashley creates, so I decided to go for it.  Although, I did realize that I need a new cutting mat and a new blade - my current mat is not as sticky as it should be and my blade is not cutting as clean as it should!  Ha!

In other, unrelated news, I finally caved and got an Instagram account.  I am sort of obsessed.  I think that is why I waited so long - I knew it would be addictive!

Project Life with Clique Kits

Popping in real quickly to let you know that I have a post up at the Clique Kits blog this morning - it's about using your kit for your pocket pages!


The colors in this month's kit are so vibrant and fun - I couldn't resist using them for a Project Life spread.  Plus, their kits make it so easy because they almost always include the cut-apart journaling card papers and always include the CK exclusive cards.

You can see more details on the CK blog!
