November Club

Here is the fall layout for club. I am in love with the teal and chocolate chip! ;)

October Club

Here is the layout for the October party. I love the trick or treat stamp set and the new paper (in the mini catalog). I LOVE Halloween!

Here is the treat bag topper we are making. If you want to make multiples I am charging 3 for $1.

Club Layout

I really had a lot of fun making these pages. I love the pictures so that helped! ;)

Here is the layout to fit the back to school theme most people want to scrapbook. I am adding polka dot texture to the pink on the left. It adds just a little pop. Then we'll put journaling lines on the right page.

Party Favors

We went to Hobby Lobby today and picked out flowers to use for hair clips. Hallie is very excited for her party tomorrow. In the morning I'm going to have Hallie sign all the thank you cards. I think they turned out pretty cute. They were VERY easy. I love flower clips. LOVE them. Hope her friends like them too!

Made with love...

Our church is making a quilt for the Medical City Children’s Hospital in Dallas. When children are terminally ill they go there for their last days and people donate quilts with inspirational sayings on them to help them and their families during that time. People that come to visit them can sign their blanket and when they pass on their family keeps the quilt. They needed someone to make a card for everyone to sign so Jen volunteered and asked for my help. Here is what we came up with. This is for a teenage girl. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family. 

Hmmm. Do the colors look familiar?

Birthday Invitations!

I LOVE the new colors melon mambo and bermuda bay! 

Summer Layout with New Colors!

Here is the layout we'll be doing next weekend for club. I got the idea for the sun in the corner from my sweet friend and upline, Lindsey. Love it, Linz! ;) This is obviously the feminine version of the layout. The masculine version has brilliant blue instead of the melon mambo. 

You pull the tab on the right page and it opens like a card. It's fun to add another picture and some journaling to the pages.  And yes, I still need the journaling. 

August's Stamp Club Project!

Jen Beal is the hostess for club in August and wants to decorate these tins. So if you're in the club pick up a tin at hobby lobby (don't forget to print off a coupon online) and I will provide all the paper and ribbon. I have tons of different patterns of paper and colors of ribbon so you can personalize your tin. I use my box for all my cards.

These are so easy to make and pretty darn fast too!

6 X 6 Layout for Club

This year for club we are making 6 x 6 layouts each month so when the year is over each person has an entire mini album finished. Here is the first layout!

I love that this layout can be used for baby girl, wedding, family pics, friend pics and more. Change the pink to green and it can be baby boy too! ;)

Happy Birthday Make and Take

It seems there are a LOT of summer birthdays so for one of tomorrow's make and takes I designed a quick birthday card. My friend Melanie is hosting an open house to get to know people here. I am super excited!

I'm back!

Well it has been MONTHS since I have made anything. Julia is now 2 and a half months old. We are settled in our place and I am ready to get started again. I made Julia's announcements and will post it next week. Thanks Lindsey, for posting for me while I was taking a break! Love the scrapbook pages. 

Will post soon!


Here's another example of a Leah-inspired layout. These are both so fun. Check out Leah's here.

How I love Au Chocolate

Another go at a fun Leah layout. I love these kind of layouts with all the little different patterns- not to mention that Au Chocolate was one of my all-time favorite Designer Papers from Stampin' Up! I can't find Leah's original, so maybe she'll find it for me. :) More to come later today!

Technical Difficulties

Hey friends!
I'm still guest blogging here for a bit, I had had some technical difficulties, but I think we're good now! Let's continue our walk down Lindsey's take on Leah's lay-outs. Here's today's layout.

Leah's blank: here. This layout actually has pictures of me, which is rare. Thanks for stopping by!

Don't get bored yet!

We have a long way to go with Leah-inspired stuff! :) Here is the next one! I have to admit, I LOVE this one. I love layouts that you can fit a bunch of pictures on- and this is certainly the case. I also love layouts that use scraps and make a quilt-like pattern. So, another master piece idea beginning with Leah's idea here, and ending up like the page you see before you!

Thanks for stopping by Leah's site!

Leah-inspired Part 2

So here's another Leah-inspired layout. She began with a holiday-themed layout and I changed it to our trip to the fire station. Fun stuff. Here is Leah's original post.

Welcome Julia!

Well, as many of you may remember- Leah is on "maternity leave" from the blog since having her darling 4th daughter, Julia. I am happy to report that Leah & baby are fine and trying to adjust to the life of living with a newborn again.
Anyhow, instead of leaving you guys hanging, I asked Leah if I could fill in till she fills like a human again. So I thought I would share some Leah-inspired layouts. Here's the first, more to come later. This is one of the lay-outs Leah offered at Retreat. I changed it a bit to fit more pictures. You can find her original post here.

Retreat Class: Friendship in a Jar...Packet Style

These jars are perfect for a gift for a friend or sister...even to keep for yourself. They can be used to hold ribbon scraps, bath salts or crystals, candy, buttons, accessories, anything you can think of. They come in 2 sizes and you can choose either pattern.

Small jars are $3. Paper is double sided which allows you to play around with the colors and patterns. 

Large Jars are $4.

You can either hang the tag from the jar or stick it to the top.

This class is one that comes packet style with the paper, ribbon and needed items for you to create the jars at your own pace. You may order multiple jars.
