#52favorites Update

Hey, hey!  I wanted to pop in and share some of my recent spreads for my #52favorites album.

Special shout out for my Week 12 spread, which was created for my guest designer stint at the Inspired By challenge blog.  We were asked to create a project inspired by this image:

Here is what I created for it (using an older Felicity Jane kit):

And here are the rest of my weeks:
Week 8 used the XOXO collection from Pretty Little Studio.

Week 9 used the Potpourri collection from Pretty Little Studio and wood veneers from Color Cast Designs.

Week 10 used the It's Your Birthday collection from Pretty Little Studio.

Week 11 used the This is Us collection from Clique Kits. (use code KAT10 at checkout to get 10% off purchases in the CK store)

Thanks for popping in today!


XOXO || Pretty Little Studio

Hey all!  So sorry I've been MIA.  Piper and I were visiting both sets of her grandparents for the past two weeks, but now I'm ready to get back in it :)

While I was gone, I had a page up on the Pretty Little Studio blog.  I played with the XOXO collection some more and created a quick layout with it.  I combined it with the XOXO cut file that was one of the freebies last month to create this:

I must say, I am sooooo proud of myself for using this bright purple background.  I always use a white background, so this was way outside of my comfort zone :)

Have a nice week!

Cousin Love || Color Cast Designs

Hi everyone!!  I recently shared a layout that I created for Color Cast Designs using a few of the releases from January and February.

I really love this layout.  It's very simple and it came together in abut 15 minutes.  I love the photo and love that the photo is definitely the focus of the layout.  I actually created a collage consisting of this photo and another one and had it printed in a 12x12 size...which mans another large photo layout is coming soon!  :)

Thanks for popping in!

#52favorites Update

Hey, hey!  Happy Monday (if there is such a thing)!  I just wanted to pop in and share a quick update on my #52favorites album.  I am caught up to Week 7...woohoo!  This project is so much easier for me than Project Life...there's hope I may actually get the whole album finished this year!  LOL.

Week 6 used the February Sampler Kit from Scrapbook & Cards Today....lots of Doodlebug goodness included:

For Week 7, I went stash-diving and used the older Bella Blvd/Illustrated Faith collection "She Blooms":

I love this project sooooo much!  More to come soon, I hope!  :)


5 Months

Tomorrow my sweet baby girl turns 6 months old!  I just don't understand where the time is going!

Every month, I take her monthly photo sticker and highlight 10-14 pictures from the month.  I finished her 5th month spread just in the nick of time...

In keeping with my stash-busting goal, I used the older Bella Blvd/Illustrated Faith line "She Blooms".  It's still one of my favorites:

Thanks so much for stopping by - hope your weekend is restful!

Bohemian Brew Mini Album || Jillibean Soup

Hey hey!  Happy Friday!

I wanted to just pop in and share a mini album that I made with Jillibean Soup's new Bohemian Brew collection.  The album highlights some time spent with my niece last summer when she came to visit us while we still lived in Tampa:

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey y'all!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I wanted to pop in and share a Valentine's Day-themed layout that I made for Color Cast Designs using the "Into You" set:

I also used the adorable Hello Love collection from Crate Paper.  It's a few years old and I've been totally hoarding it.  My goal for this year is to use up some of my stash...here's to hoping that works!

Make sure you check our Color Cast Designs tomorrow - it's release day and they've got some awesome stuff coming!
