Somewhere in Time - BoBunny

Good Morning! Today at BoBunny I am sharing an altered frame I made using the new Somewhere in Time collection. As soon as I saw this collection I knew I wanted to alter a frame with it. I wanted to capture the special relationship Nicole and Ryan have. From when they were small they were the best of friends and that hasn't changed. For the frame I used some new crackle paint I bought and I love how it turned out. I printed out some saying and used some rub on saying to fill in the smaller frames. Some fussy cutting and stamping completed the project. This was a really special project and Nicole quickly said "I want that", so now it's on the wall at her new home.

 Lots of fussy cutting going on for the flowers.
 Here is a closeup of the crackle paint!!
I just loved this saying I found on the internet, so had to use it!

It's A Party - Boys Rule


Morning!! This is my last project using the May/June kit at Boys Rule. I thought this was a good way to use up all those bits and pieces from the kit. Oh don't get me wrong, there is still plenty left over, I'm no where near down to my scraps. I think I could do another five layouts with all that is left! I thought though that Noah might like an invite to share with his Grandma when she gets invited to his birthday party!! Maybe, just maybe he will invite me too!!!

Creative Blog Hop!!

Good Morning Everyone!! Some friends I know are doing a creative blog hop!  Last week my sweet friend Di Willcox tagged me in her blog so today it's my turn to share some things about myself and share some wonderful friends blogs with you. Next week they will be sharing their thoughts and sharing more blogs with you! This is so much fun and I would like to thank Di for thinking of me!! So let's get answering those questions!

1. What am I working on?
Right now I'm working on some pages for my Misc. Me binder! I'm so in love with the Somewhere In Time collection from BoBunny. This spread is all about a trip we just took in the mountains.

2. How does my work differ from others in my genre?

I really don't think I am different or do anything special when I scrap. I can tell you what I love!! Layers, layers and more layers! Embellies, paint, stamps and mist!! I love to experiment. I will say that the one thing I tend to lean towards is earthy colors. I have a hard time doing fun bright projects. I will do simple, the next layout is fussy cutting, then the next is a layout with a mixed media twist! It's fun to try new things.

3. Why do I create what I do?

Sometimes I create just for fun. I just want to play. That's usually when I reach for my art journal 
( which by the way has been neglected for the past while).  Other times I am doing design projects where I am assigned something. The bottom line is I create because I want to capture memories on paper, I want to tell a story, and also because I enjoy the creativity. It takes me to my happy place!

How does my creative process work?
I tend to always start with a photo I want to scrap. Then I find a collection that I want to work with. I then play with layers ( lots of layers). The fun part comes next...the embellies!! I mix and match, layer and play! Titles are the thing I find the hardest to do. Now that I have a cameo, it's a little easier to make a title. A lot of the time I will use a sticker from a collection that jumps out at me. To finish off I always grab my stamps and stamp pad. This is the part where I say " just a little more"!! My goal is to add more journaling to my projects. Most of the time I like to hide it with a tag or on the edge of my project.


So the big question is.. where do I find inspiration? I love galleries and Pinterest, but I do love blog hopping and checking in on all the amazing scrappers out there!! Here are two of my favourite ladies!

Juliana Michaels is such an amazing lady. We have been scrappy friends for a few years and she never ceases to amaze me with the projects she does. I met her when I started designing for BoBunny and she took me under her wing and was my mentor!! I call her the Queen of Altered Items!! I am in awe of what she creates. Her layouts are so fun. She has so many different techniques ( and yes she shares them with everyone). I hope you enjoy her blog as much as I do!

 Rhonda Van Ginkel is my scrappy buddy!! We run ideas past each other, chat about everyday life, and she always is ready to help figure out that "little extra something" my project needs. I always admire her projects and try to figure out how she did it!! She is incredible! Her cards blow me away every time. Her attention to detail amazes me!! Did I mention she has the two cutest boys!! I hope you enjoy her blog too!!

Next week these two fabulous scrappers will share with you too..

Wild Child - Boys Rule And A FREE Cut File




Howdy Scrappy Friends!!! I'm up today at Boys Rule sharing my latest layout using the May/June kit. I usually tend to use muted background for my layouts, but I was loving this circle striped background. I didn't really have a design in mind until I started looking through my cameo files. I came across this circle design I created and then the layout began to take shape. It was pretty fun decorating all those circles I must admit. I hope you enjoy the cut file..if you do please help me get the word out, pin it, share it... I would really appreciate it!! I have more files coming!!

Thowback to the 1970's - Canadian Scrapbooker



Good Morning!! I'm so excited!! I was asked to be a guest designer on the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine blog today. It is such an honour to be a guest at my favourite scrapbook magazine. There is a story behind this layout! My best friend from junior high school and I reconnected on facebook this year. She posted this photo to my wall.. it's from 1978! I was pretty stylin back then, now wasn't I? lol. So, when I saw the "Somewhere In Time" collection from BoBunny, I just couldn't resist using it for my layout. I layered, I stamped, I stamped some more, lol. I used a cut file that I shared awhile ago and a cut file from Kerri Bradford as well. If your new to my blog there is a tab at the top called "Cameo Cut File Freebies" where I share the files that I made. Please feel free to grab one, two or all of them. I will be adding new files often. In fact there will be a new one available tomorrow!!

Happier Than A Monster - Boys Rule


Good Morning Scrappy Friends and Happy Sunday! Today I'm sharing a card I made using the May/ June kit from Boys Rule . I just can't help but smile when I look at all that fun patterned paper in the kit. I thought a birthday card for a special little boy was in order! I punched out circles on my star layered paper and tucked the balloons from the Fancy Pants Ephemera pack in the circles with some pop dots for dimension. Don't those little mosters just make you smile?? Thanks for stopping by today and hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Summer Is Time For - Scrapstuffz


Morning!!! Today I'm sharing a layout at Scrapstuffz. When I saw the inspiration photo I had a thought of what I wanted to do. It was either going to be a great idea or a total flop.. you don't know until you try right? First I thought of printing the words around my page, then I thought I would make journaling strips. Then a thought came to me to turn the photo into black and white and print it onto my background paper. I hit print and crossed my fingers, lol. I thought color and fun, and it turned out grungy, but it was still fun to do! I know Nicole is going to love that I scrapped this photo..I can hear the phone ringing already.. "MOM.. why that photo?".. just because Nicole..just because, lol.

Smile - Boys Rule Sketch


Morning Scrappy Friends!! Today I'm up on the Boys Rule blog with a new layout and a sketch I designed. I love working with the girls there. They challenge me to step out of my comfort zone and now I can design a sketch and make a cut file! Yipeeee, lol. So, back to the layout, lol. I couldn't help but scrap this selfie of Ryan and Jax. Those two are just the best of buddies. The May/ June kit has so many fun chipboard shapes, stickers, wooden embellies... it's crazy how much stuff is in that kit! I always have leftovers. I hope you can stop by and play along with us. You don't need to have the kit to play along! But... you just may win one!!!
