..:: this is awesome ::..

Hi Friends! I am up on the {a flair for buttons} blog today with this layout using three pieces of flair from three different flair sets from {a flair for buttons}!  Here is a look at what I made:


There was a virtual crop this last weekend at Paper Issues Facebook Page. One of the challenges was to use stitching -- so I did a bunch of stitching on this layout using metallic gold thread! Here are some close-ups:


This travel flair is from the Hashtag Summer Flair set. It fit the theme and color scheme of this layout.  All of my papers are from the Paper Issues March Scrapbook kit (sold out).


This little sloth ephemera from the kit was perfect for this layout!  And I thought this flair from the Lovely Words 10 Flair set matched his personality well!


And finally, you know I couldn't get by without adding adding a piece of flair from the Sloth Love Flair Set! This is the first of many layouts that I am sure I will do about how Covid-19 is changing how things work these days.

Here are a few more close ups:




I made a video of my process if that's something that suits your fancy!


Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope this blogpost finds you and your family safe and healthy. XO o.g.

..:: so fun ::..

Hi Friends!  It's Scraplift Sunday time!  I am up on the Paper Issues Blog today with my take on the our scrap lift this week! We are lifting MandaJane today and you can find her layout here. Here is my layout using the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studio Legendary Collection :


Here is a look at the original :


I stuck pretty close to the original -- one photo, three strips of patterned paper, three clusters, etc. I switched it up a bit by making one of my clusters include journaling instead of ephemera, and my strips are more "wonky" and roughed up.  Here are a few close ups:




I added some wonky machine stitching and tangled thread to my layout as well. Just for a touch of color and added texture. 


This was a fun one to scrap lift! I love Scraplift Sunday! I made a video of my process if that's something that suits your fancy!

..:: snow happy ::..

Hi friends! I am up on the Paper Issues Blog with a layout using Pinkfresh Studio's My Favorite Story collection and the Life In Pictures FREE cut file from the Paper Issues Store.


I used black card stock and cut out the film strip part of the cut file. I sized my photos to fit inside the strips. I like that I was able to get so many photos on the page using this free file!


I wanted to use this lovely rainbow paper because the snowman they made used so many rainbow colors in the buttons, scarf, and mittens. There are beautiful florals included in the ephemera pack for this collection, but I thought snowflakes might fit the story a little better. I used a punch and paper from the 6x6 paper pad to make snowflakes in the matching rainbow colors.


I added some pops of black throughout the page and I also added some of the chipboard flair from the collection -- in all the matching colors!


Here are a few more close ups:
