Layout :: Just Keep Smiling + Video!

Hello hello!!
Glad to be sharing a layout with you today! I was so very close to losing all the footage from recording, but thank goodness I figured it out after several tries :)
Here are the supplies I pulled for this layout

I am so in love with the soft colors!

Here is the almost lost process video :)

And here is a closer look at the final layout!


This is probably my favorite part of the layout. I normally layer everything or have my title on something other than the background paper but I do love how this turned out!


I love that little camera brad! Sooo cute!! And the little cabochon flowers are handmade by me! So fun to make! (take forever though)

Love the little banner too! I know the products were from an older Dear Lizzy line, but I'm sure it's safe to say I'm probably not the only on who was hoarding some of these adorable products! lol

Annnnnd the date, because I made it a great habit to add the date to every layout I make now. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!! 
Have a great day!

Layout :: Lights + Video

Hello hello!
I am bringing you another Christmas layout today!
Here are the supplies I pulled for this page

 Although I ended up changing some of the things I pulled I still like sharing a photo with you of my original thought process and kind of where I was going with this layout :)

Here is the process video!

And a closer look at the finished layout!

(Sorry for the glare)

So in love with the leopard print and Christmas combo!! And those Thickers are great for a Holiday layout! (purchased from Hobby Lobby)

Also love this POW glitter paper! It is thin enough to use with punches and it doesn't shed! I received it in a Studio Calico kit  but would love to buy more!!

Anything can look better with a tag ;).... well almost anything hehe! I love the bakers twine! It's by Martha Stewart and I've had it forever, perfect for Christmas!

Can you tell I'm addicted to sewing on paper? :)

And another photo of the sparkly snowflake because... who doesn't love a glittered up snowflake?? :)

Hope you enjoyed! If you have any questions or request then don't be shy!
Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!!

Keeping Track of 2012 :: Reflection + Video

Christmas layout!!
I know some people like scrapbooking previous Christmas photos around the holidays, but not me. I love making my layouts as soon as I can that way I will actually scrap them and not keep holding it off. 
So that being said, here is my first Christmas layout I am bring you! I don't have a ton this year so it won't be an overkill I hope lol. 

Here are the supplies I pulled.


And here is the process video!

Annnnnnd a closer look at the layout :)

Let me just say... I LOVE the leopard print and Christmas mix! I think it's so cool to bring something in that is totally none traditional!

This red arrow I got from a Studio Calico kit worked perfectly for this page. And I loooove that stamp!!



Choosing which stickers for the date was a pain in the booty! At first I had some Crate stickers from the Christmas line, and realized they didn't have numbers. So I tried for some October Afternoon stickers that were the same color (aqua) and I didn't like introducing that color to this layout. So then I went to some green OA letter sickers but it was a darker green than  the star paper I used. Then it hit me! The new Studio Calico kit came with these cute little red alpha and number stickers by Basic Grey. They were the perfect match!

I am obsessed with putting glitter on wood veneer :)


Hope you enjoyed! I normally have a plan for a layout... well kind of but this one I really didn't have a clue as to what I wanted to do. I am happy with the way it turned out though!!
Thank you for stopping by! Please leave a comment :)
