Hello Fall

Hi everyone! Sharing another layout using the Scraptastic Club kit, Colorblind and add on.
Not to long ago I made a layout using a fall photo of leaves on the ground and my feet in the picture. I'm pretty sure it will become tradition!
Here is the layout!
Kept it pretty simple but loooove the embellishments!

I used the dot stamp to add some little grey dots for added detail, put some thread under the wood leaves and added a couple hexagon enamel dots!

Love that large sticker!

I think this leaf shape is my favorite! 

Added some letter sticker from the kit, thickers, the date of the photo and a sticker heart! 

Don't forget to check out what other members are making with their kits over on the blog!

Christmas Countdown Prep

Hi everyone!! Thought I would do a quick post showing you what I pulled for my Christmas Countdown mini! First I grabbed the oh so lovely Christmas Countdown Kit that Carrie Elias put together, went through my stash of Christmas embellishments or anything that screams Christmas and threw it all in a pretty pile! 
Here is what I pulled together!

Love all the colors!

What would Christmas be without glitter?? So happy these glitter tags came in the kit. I grabbed some stars from my stash and some number stamps.

I have a confession... I have a good amount of washi tape and I never seem to use them. I think I will challenge myself to use some up in this mini!

And my favorite part... the embellishments! Ones from the kit, from my stash and flair buttons that I got last year from JC Penny :) 

Stay tuned for some sneak peaks of the mini and don'f forget to go check out the kit and see everything that's included!! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Las Vegas

Hello hello!
Today I'm sharing a somewhat double page spread I made using the Scraptastic kit called Colorblind and add on. I went to Las Vegas in August with some family and took a *few* photos that I knew I wanted to scrap! At first I wasn't sure how I wanted to put these together. I was thinking of two 12x12 pages with an insert in the middle, then I was thinking a mini album but I knew I wanted them in my 2013 12x12 album. Then I thought I would just make 4 layouts and then changed my mind again haha.
I finally decided on making a layout with 4 photos to go on the left, and a 12x12 collage to go on the right. I changed the photos to black and white so they look better and I'm not having to fuss with matching products to the harsh Vegas lighting. 
Here is what I came up with:
Making the collage in Picasa 3 can be a little tricky. I had to remove or add photos otherwise some of them double up just so the collage is even looking. I'm happy with the way it turned out though. The 12x12 was on sale for only $2 from and I ordered the others in 3x4 sizes.

I love these Glitz papers! Glad they came in the kit too because now I'll be able to use any left overs in my Christmas Countdown album! 

I used a little diecut from a previous kit and a little arrow clip from my stash 

Another little sticker and it's done!

Here is the making process for this page!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope this gets you going on your vacation photos!

Christmas Countdown 2013

Hi everyone!!
I'm soooo excited to be making my very first December Daily this year!
There are tons of cute kits out this year but I was asked to make some custom frame embellishments for a Christmas Countdown kit that was put together by Carrie Elias. She made lots of custom files that are adorable and I love all the colors shes used for the kit. 
Here is the kit!

Here are some detail shots!




Go check out her video here and a full list of supplies here. There aren't many left so snatch them up when you can! Not to mention they are about half the price of most kits and that includes shipping. Once you purchase your kit you will also receive the files to make more pages if you need them! 
Happy Scrapping everyone!
