Words for the Heart - Cocoa Daisy

I loved these words strips included in the Cocoa Daisy kit and the flower page was perfect for fussy cutting.  I kept trying to get these strips on other layouts and it didn't work.  So I finally decided to grab my favorite ones and include them on a layout.  I'm pretty pleased how this turned out; the kit included lots of papers that aren't my normal me, but I LOVE how they have made me create!  Thanks Cocoa Daisy!

the Shoes - Cocoa Daisy


I just had to have the scribble stamps that you see on this layout and so I bought the September kit from Cocoa Daisy.  I have had so much fun playing with this kit and not only the stamps, but just the contents!  

I played along with the designer challenge that called for
1.  A scribble - thanks to my new stamps I can scribble now, lol
2.  A star - yep, thanks to the Heidi Swapp rub-ons which I love!
3.  2 fonts for your title - yep, 3 on this layout!
4.  packaging - I used the packaging that came with my kit, the yellow tissue paper was so pretty and added an unexpected pop of color.  The dance card was also a notecard that the dance store gave my daughter to celebrate her new pointe shoes.
5.  paint/ink - I used mist for my splatters, and ink for my stamping.

Here are some close-ups...

the New Me - Paper Camelia with American Crafts and Crate Paper




I finally got a chance to play with some of my purchases, unfortunately the sun hasn't shone here in FL all week so better pictures will have to wait.  





This was the September kit from Paper Camelia featuring Shimelle's collection and Crate Paper's Notes and Things.  I had printed these pictures which I used on my monthly layouts over the past year and then this picture taken one year after having Rocky, the New Me!

Favorite Memories - Basic Grey

I created this layout for a call at PaperCrafts & Scrapbooking for stitching.  I don't normally use Basic Grey, but I loved this collection and it fit these pictures so well.  This was quite a few years ago, it amazes me how quickly our dudes are getting big!


You can find this layout on page 72 of the October PaperCrafts & Scrapbooking.

U & ME - Guest Designer at Pebbles

Today I am sharing a few home decor projects on the Pebbles blog to bring the fall weather into your home.  I couldn't resist making a layout too with the gorgeous Home+Made collection.

I started my page witht the You are my Happy card.  I decided to give some pops of color without overwhelming the page I would add hexagons using the various papers from the collection.  And the large stickers are perfect for an eye catching title.


A few details...




I'd love for you to stop by the Pebbles blog and let me know what you think of the other projects I created!
